It’s no surprise that the number of tummy tuck procedures have increased astronomically since 2000. In fact, there’s been a 106 percent increase over the years. Here are four reasons why women particularly love tummy tucks:
No. 1: Bikini Body
The most obvious benefit that draws many women into considering a tummy tuck is the ever-sought-after bikini body. Whether having children has affected your stomach or weight gain and loss have caused excess skin, a tummy tuck can help you achieve that flat stomach you’ve been missing.
No 2: Remove Stretch Marks
Although the surgery can’t remove stretch marks from all over the stomach, if the stretch marks are located on the excess skin being removed, there is often a big improvement in the appearance of them on the lower abdomen.
No. 3: Healthier Skin
Some patients don’t just choose a tummy tuck for cosmetic reasons – they also choose the procedure for health reasons. When there is a large amount of excess skin on the abdomen, it can cause rashes and skin irritation. A tummy tuck can help make the area look and feel better.
No. 4: Muscle Repair
For women who have had children, the abdominal wall often undergoes a separation called rectus diastasis. This can affect core strength and cause the abdomen to protrude slightly or appear bulging. When the muscles are repaired, they begin to work better, and most women report feeling stronger after their muscles are where they should be.
