Everyone wants to look their best. It’s human nature. And sometimes our bodies are quite happy to tell us when something is wrong, giving us the chance to put it right again.
A tummy tuck is a great way to gain your confidence – and your body – back. But do you really need one? Take a look at these five signs that a tummy tuck is right for you, and see what you think.
After a time, skin becomes loose, and any elasticity it once had disappears into the ether. The skin that is left behind after you lose a large amount of weight, for example, can often be lax and loose, giving it a stretched out appearance. It often happens with individuals who have gastric bypass surgery as their weight loss is rapid and the skin has no time to respond. Once the elasticity has gone, it’s gone, and the only thing that can repair it is a tummy tuck.
It’s not just your skin and external appearance that can be enhanced with a tummy tuck. Muscles can be improved too. Have you found that your abdominal muscles don’t give you any support anymore? It happens. A cosmetic surgeon will be able to pull the muscles together during a tuck and make them stronger again. Perfect! As a bonus, you’ll end up with a flatter, more toned stomach too.
It may have become the norm to you, but wearing maternity clothes years after you’ve given birth is a sure sign that you could benefit from a tummy tuck. This is especially true if you’ve been dieting and exercising and seen no changes at all. All that work for no reward is disheartening. One simple procedure can change all of that, and it’s worth every penny of the tummy tuck cost.
Unsightly Stretch Marks
Stretch marks are the battle scars of motherhood, and they are nothing to be ashamed of. Yet they can cause problems with self-confidence, and they can affect our happiness in day to day life. Although there is not tried and tested method to get rid of them completely, a tummy tuck will help. Yes, really! Removing the excess skin will take the stretch marks along with it, giving you a smoother appearance both in and out of your clothes. It can make a big difference. Any stretch marks that are left will end up being much lower down than they were due to the nature of the surgery. So they won’t be anything to worry about anymore either!
For some, the above issues might not be problems. But we’re all different, and we all have different ideas of how we want our bodies to be. For many, sagging, loose skin and having only a very small choice when it comes to clothing severely decreases their confidence. Low self-confidence can impact your social life, personal life, your sex life, and your general health and well-being. Having a tummy tuck can increase your confidence hugely.
