Why do people get tummy tucks?
👉🏼Removal of excess skin: Guests who have experienced substantial weight loss or pregnancy often have excess skin that may not respond well to diet and exercise. A tummy tuck removes surplus skin, reducing the appearance of loose folds
👉🏼Correction of Stretch Marks: While a tummy tuck is not specifically designed to eliminate stretch marks, it can address stretch marks located on the lower abdomen by removing skin in that area
👉🏼Muscle Tightening: Pregnancy or significant weight loss can lead to abdominal separation (diastasis recti). A tummy tuck involves tightening this muscles, which can enhance core strength and provide a firmer abdominal wall.
👉🏼Increased Confidence and Self-Esteem: Many people find the improvements in their abdominal appearance to lead to increased confidence and a positive impact on self-esteem. Feeling more comfortable in one’s body can have psychological and emotional benefits
