Abdominoplasty, sometimes called a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin from the torso and help create a flat, tight core. This procedure is quite popular, especially with those who have excess skin after a large weight loss or pregnancy. While better aesthetics are certainly a good reason to consider receiving an abdominoplasty, it is not the only benefit of the procedure.
Greater Ease of Movement
Loose skin on the abdomen can be uncomfortable and make it more difficult to move around. This is especially a problem if the skin hangs down onto the thighs and interferes with the motion of the legs. This can also cause issues if the excess skin rubs and chafes, providing more incentive to move less. After abdominoplasty, the skin will be tight and not pose any restriction to your natural movements.
Better Clothing Fit
It can be frustrating to lose a lot of weight only to wear larger sizes anyway because excess skin is in the way of a proper fit. Tailoring fees to accommodate excess skin can be expensive. An abdominoplasty can remove the skin and make shopping off-the-rack and in the right size a reality. If you want more wardrobe options or are dissatisfied with fit, a tummy tuck is definitely worth considering.
Feeling bad about how your body looks can cause issues in every facet of your life. Whether you are quiet at work and missing out on advancement opportunities or are holding back in your dating life, lack of confidence and self-esteem can impact your whole life and deny you plenty of happiness. If you are not satisfied with your aesthetic, considering an abdominoplasty may be the right choice for you.
