An Abdominoplasty Can Give You a Fitter Tummy
Have you been hitting the gym every single day and sweating it out until you can no longer move, yet your waistline remains the same? Have you tried every possible diet only to find out that none of them reduce your waistline?
When you have stubborn fat, you can work out every single day and try out a number of fad diets but still not notice any difference in your waistline. Rather than throw in the towel, you can come in for abdominoplasty, a revolutionary surgery that has been changing the lives of thousands of people every year.
The abdominoplasty is commonly known as the tummy tuck. It is a procedure where Dr. Bundrick removes excess skin present on your abdomen, along with excess fat. Muscle tissue is also tightened. With this simple procedure, you can get a toned, flat abdomen without spending hours and hours at the gym.
Advantages of Getting Abdominoplasty
Abdominoplasty is primarily cosmetic, but it also comes with a lot of medical advantages. To give you an idea, here are three benefits of abdominoplasty:
Decrease in Risk of Ventral Hernia: A ventral hernia can occur when the abdominal or intestinal tissue forms a sack/pocket by going through the abdominal wall. One of the main reasons why it occurs is because the abdominal tissues have lost their strength. Abdominoplasty tightens the muscles and makes them stronger, reducing the chances of a ventral hernia significantly.
Improvement in Posture and Abdominal Tone: When you lose a lot of weight, the muscles in your stomach become weak. As discussed earlier, abdominoplasty makes your muscles tight and strong. At the same time, it removes excess fat and skin, making your abdomen flat. Since the muscles will now have the strength to support your spine, you will notice significant improvement in your posture.
Reduction of Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI): There are chances of suffering from Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) due to vaginal birth. Abdominoplasty comes to the rescue, as the procedure can reduce incontinence by obstructing the bladder with soft tissue.
How to Prepare for Abdominoplasty
As smoking creates complications and slows down the healing process considerably, you should stop smoking completely for at least two weeks before and after the surgery. Make sure that you continue to eat a complete and well-balanced diet to notice the best results.
If you are taking any supplements, herbal medicines, and prescription drugs, bring it to the notice of Dr. Bundrick well in advance. Also, purchase comfortable and loose clothing, as it can make your recovery more convenient and comfortable.
Recovering After Abdominoplasty
Make sure you listen to Dr. Bundrick’s post-surgical care instructions and follow them as closely as possible. Dr. Bundrick will give you advice on how to lie down and sit correctly during the healing process.
Dr. Bundrick will prescribe you ointments or other types of medications that promote healing. Avoid any strenuous activities for six weeks after the procedure for best results.
