Some women have medical problems associated with the stomach and wish there was something they could do. While most people associate abdominoplasty with slimming down and looking more toned, a tummy tuck in Chicago is also an excellent way to reduce the pain and problems associated with various medical conditions. While they are available to men and women who want to tone up and tighten the belly area, they are an excellent option to correct posture problems, reduce SUIs and fix hernias, among others. Therefore, if you’ve considered an abdominoplasty for cosmetic reasons, you may be able to benefit medically, as well.

SUI Reduction

Stress Urinary Incontinence is a problem associated with women and childbirth. After the child is born, some women develop SUI, which is a bladder control problem that brings uncontrolled leakage when exercising, coughing, laughing or sneezing. While Sui can be treated without surgery, some patients require more strenuous treatment plans. An abdominoplasty works by creating a small bladder obstruction near the pelvis, which reduces incontinence.

Better Posture/Abdominals

While part physical, part medical, abdominoplasty can help you straight up (literally). Most people notice that after pregnancy or weight loss, the stomach muscles distend, which can’t be helped by exercise and diet.

Lordosis, also known as a sway back, is caused by weakened abdominal muscles. While strengthening exercises can help, a tummy tuck can help, as well.

Correction of Hernia

Ventral hernias happen when the abdominal tissue or intestine breaks through your abdominal wall and forms a sack or pocket. The correction procedure is similar to an abdominoplasty and may provide both procedures at the same time for practicality and reduction of recovery time.

A tummy tuck in Chicago can do so many things, including tightening the abdomen muscles. Visit The Michael Horn Center for Cosmetic Surgery now to learn more. Follow us on facebook.
