Having a Tummy Tuck: Let’s Talk Reasons!

We all make numerous decisions every day. Because our days are similar from one to the next, most of our decisions are made without really thinking about them. Cream in the coffee, check. Brush teeth before bed, check. We do these things without considering the advantages and disadvantages of our choices every single time. There are situations, however, where that level of contemplation is an absolute must. Having a tummy tuck is one of them. Here, we discuss why your reasons for wanting abdominoplasty matter.

Why Have a Tummy Tuck?

There are several reasons a person may give for wanting to address abdominal laxity. Motivations must be personal for every person, not made to please anyone but the patient. Common healthy reasons for a tummy tuck include the following.

Getting your Body Back

If you’ve had children or have lost weight, you may be left with loose, sagging tissue in your midsection. In your mind’s eye, you can recall when your tummy was flatter and tighter. A tummy tuck is performed to meet your specific needs so that you can look as good as you once did, if not better.

Feeling More Confident

Confidence is not created by our appearance but the two are related. Numerous studies have confirmed this theory. When you have that image in your mind’s eye of what your body used to or could look like, and that image is not what you see in the mirror, you’re bound to have an emotional response. This is only natural. Addressing loose and sagging abdominal tissue rewards you with harmony between how you see yourself and how you see yourself, if you know what we mean. Your self-image is what you will see in the mirror. In addition to looking like your best self and feeling confident about that, your tummy tuck can also expand your clothing options to include more form-fitting fashions without unsightly bulges.

Enhancing your Lifestyle Habits

A tummy tuck is not done to help a person lose weight. It is designed for muscle and tissue looseness. The procedure is a great complement to a healthy lifestyle that supports weight management and muscle tone. With healthy habits firmly in place before surgery, patients can enjoy lasting improvements from their abdominoplasty.
