The Medical Benefits of Tummy Tuck Surgery


Tummy tuck surgery is an incredibly effective way to restore tone, contour, and definition to the midsection. Following weight loss or pregnancy, tummy tuck surgery can help restore the body to its most attractive form, helping improve clothing options, self-esteem, and overall satisfaction with body image. However, aesthetic and emotional benefits, while very important, may not be the only reason to consider abdominoplasty in Scottsdale.

Tummy tuck surgery offers surprising medical benefits that may factor into your decision when discussing options with Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. John Corey. Among these are:

  • Reattachment of abdominal muscles helps prevent future hernias
  • Firming the recti abdominis protects the lower back and can improve posture and reduce back pain
  • Removal of excess fat in the abdomen reduces risks of some weight-related diseases and illnesses
  • Less fat allows for higher energy, improved exercise tolerance, and greater physical ability

These benefits are best realized by Scottsdale tummy tuck patients who choose to lead a healthy and active lifestyle following surgery. You can kick start this healthy lifestyle by participating in the surgical boot camp program offered by our board-certified plastic surgeon. This program incorporates diet and exercise coaching both before and after surgery to help ensure your maximum success and absolute satisfaction. If this program is right for your needs, Dr. Corey will discuss it with you in greater detail during your tummy tuck consultation at our Scottsdale plastic surgery office.
