The benefits of an abdominoplasty are more than skin deep.

There are many reasons to consider an abdominoplasty, aka a tummy tuck. There are also many benefits of getting a tummy tuck from our Elmhurst, IL, plastic surgeon Dr. Alexandrina Saulis and the expert cosmetic team at Aesthetic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. This procedure is designed to remove unwanted fat as well as loose skin from the stomach for a toned, flatter look. Here are some of the unique benefits of this procedure.

Improve Stress-Induced Urinary Incontinence

Many women experience stress urinary incontinence or bladder leakage after childbirth. You may experience leakage when laughing, coughing or exercising. While not usually a cause for concern, we understand that urinary incontinence can be uncomfortable and embarrassing for some women. If you decide to get an abdominoplasty from our Elmhurst, IL, plastic surgeon, you may also notice that your urinary incontinence symptoms also improve.  

Protect Against Hernias

If you are young and otherwise healthy you might not be too concerned about hernias but they are rather common. Anything that puts pressure on the abdominal wall such as heavy lifting, straining or pregnancy can increase your risk for a hernia. Men are also more likely than women to experience hernias. By getting a tummy tuck, we can strengthen the muscles of the abdomen and reduce your risk for a hernia now and in the future.

Boosts Your Confidence

This is a more obvious benefit but it still bears mentioning. After all, one of the goals of cosmetic surgery is to help you create the figure and look you want to help you feel confident and amazing in your own body. Even losing rapid weight fast can leave you with unwanted, loose skin that doesn’t show off just how hard you’ve worked at your weight loss. This is when abdominoplasty could help you get the results you’ve been looking for.
