Could a Tummy Tuck Help Your Mental Health?

The physical benefits of a tummy tuck, especially when combined with liposuction, have been well documented. A tummy tuck can be an effective procedure to remove excess skin, repair weakened or separated muscles for a smoother abdomen and eliminate extra fat if you add lipo. A tummy tuck may also help with stress urinary incontinence, strengthen your core and improve your posture. And a tummy tuck just might be good for your mental health, too. A detailed conversation with Dr. Meade regarding these benefits is always helpful.

Feel More Confident

When you can pick what you want to wear based solely on what you like and not on what disguises your belly, you may feel better about yourself and notice a boost in happiness and contentment. Although your tummy tuck incision may stretch from hip to hip, the scar should be hidden by the underwear or swimsuit you prefer. You can also take steps to minimize your scar.

   A tummy tuck can help you feel more confident, experience more satisfaction with your figure and make shopping for clothes more enjoyable.

Improved Weight Loss Results

For people who have experienced significant weight loss, seeing your tummy tuck results can give you the mental boost you need to keep the weight off. Don’t underestimate the benefits of not feeling discouraged by having to deal with an abdomen that doesn’t reflect your hard work. You may also feel more motivated after a tummy tuck to continue leading a healthy lifestyle that includes a nutritious diet and routine exercise.
