What no one tells you about a Tummy tuck

Most people who decide to have a tummy tuck do so for cosmetic reasons such as they have an abundance of loose, saggy and stretched skin in their abdominal area that bothers them a great deal. However there are instances where people have a tummy tuck in order to repair abdominal muscles that are weak and are causing the person to have health problems such as constant back pain. When a person has a tummy tuck because of weak muscles it is considered to be reconstructive surgery instead of cosmetic because it has to do with the proper functioning of the body as opposed to aesthetics only. When a tummy tuck is for cosmetic purposes it is unlikely that health insurance will pay for it however when it is done for reconstructive purposes the insurance company might pay for the bill partially or in some cases in full.

It is important to realize that tummy tuck surgery is not meant as a method for weight loss and it is not recommended for extremely overweight individuals. Instead a tummy tuck is best suited to individual of a normal weight who has some loose, stretched skin they wish to get rid of.

Tummy tuck surgery may be beneficial for women who have developed baggy folds of skin in their abdominal areas due to childbirth or weight loss and also women who have abdominal muscles that have been weakened due to multiple pregnancies. This surgery is also helpful for both men and women who find that despite following a healthy diet and a conventional weight loss plan they still have a great deal of fat and loose skin on their abdomens.

In order to have liposuction done on the abdomen, an individual must have skin that is elastic enough to bounce back and if not then the loose, saggy skin will be better suited to a tummy tuck procedure. The tummy tuck procedure is one that older individuals often like to undergo due to the fact of their age and being a little overweight can cause abdominal muscles to be weaker and/or there can be loose and sagging skin on the abdomen.

There are some potential patients of tummy tuck surgery who will need to wait awhile before they are able to undergo this type of procedure. People who are overweight or obese need to wait until they lose a great deal of weight and then wait a while longer for their weight to stabilize before they are deemed fit to have the surgery. Women who want to have another baby should wait until after they have done so before having the tummy tuck procedure. This type of surgery should not be undertaken until a woman has finished having children.

Tummy tucks are one of the top five most popular of all types of cosmetic surgeries. In the United States from the years 1997 until 2001 the amount of tummy tucks being performed jumped 72 percent.
