If you were to have someone list the top five cosmetic surgeries that they know, it’s very likely that a tummy tuck is going to appear on that list. It is a popular form of cosmetic surgery that has been producing results for men and women for a long time. This cosmetic surgery is designed to tighten up muscles and remove loose skin and fat from the midsection with the goal of making it look flat and toned.
Why tummy tucks are on the rise
A relatively new treatment that has gained popularity is the mommy makeover. The idea of this treatment is to help a woman regain her figure after pregnancy. A tummy tuck is usually part of the overall procedure. Tummy tucks have also been used by individuals who have lost a lot of weight and are left with loose skin.
The popularity of this procedure is unquestionable. If you look at the number of procedures that were performed at the turn of the millennium and look at those that are performed now, you’ll note that there has been an impressive 87 percent growth rate. This is according to what the American Society of Plastic Surgeons has noted.
Other benefits of a tummy tuck
A number of people turn to this procedure for cosmetic reasons, but there are some other benefits that can be gained from having it done. For instance, when you look at women who have had more than one pregnancy or you look at individuals who have lost a lot of weight, you will see that in some cases, their stomach muscles are distended. Diet and exercise can do nothing to help in these circumstances. What they need is a procedure that can tighten up the weak muscles while at the same time getting rid of the excess fat and skin. The end result is a more toned abdomen.
