The Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty offers more benefits than what most people believe. The removal of excess skin, and an increased tension in the abdominal muscles will give your belly a flatter and firmer look, a smoother contour in the stomach area and a narrower waist that will increase your self-confidence and the way clothing looks on your body. Abdominoplasty also benefits many patients with abdominal stretch marks. In many cases, the stretch marks below the navel are removed along with the excess skin at the end of the procedure; unlike liposuction alone, a tummy tuck procedure allows the removal of excess skin, which increases the elimination of "rebel" fat pockets. One of the most attractive benefits of Tummy Tuck surgery is that besides correcting a prominent belly, it can also make it look like it never existed. In some cases, abdominoplasty also benefits the patient's health since the large folds of hanging skin often become infected with fungi. Other benefits of tummy tuck surgery have to do not only with the appearance of your new abdomen, but also with how it feels: Firmer and tense. The final reason that I would like to mention today is the durability of the achieved results. The length of time during which the benefits of tummy tuck remain is only limited by the way you take care of your body after surgery. Under the right conditions, the results of a tummy tuck surgery can last for many years. If you lead a healthy and active life, you will enjoy the benefits of a Tummy Tuck for at least a decade after your initial surgery.
