Greater numbers of people are seeking an abdominoplasty in Manhattan and Dr. Kaufman and the staff at Discreet Plastic Surgery are happy to set up a consultation with any prospective patient. In many cases, people get a tummy tuck or liposuction in Manhattan to look better and feel younger and more energetic. However, there are other reasons to get an abdominoplasty, including for medical reasons.
Many people who lose a lot of weight quickly are left with loose skin hanging around their midsection. The hanging skin usually can’t be removed by a simple regimen of dieting and exercise, leaving a tummy tuck as the only option. While it definitely can go a long way in making your abdomen look nicer, a tummy tuck can also be medically required for people who develop rashes under overhanging abdominal skin. If such rashes do not go way by using prescription ointments, you might even be able to use insurance to pay for the procedure.
Another medical reason for having a tummy tuck in Manhattan is to alleviate back pain. People with weak muscles in their abdomen can often have a condition known as back sway which puts more pressure on the back, leading to severe pain. A simple tummy tuck can restore tone to the abdominal muscles and lead to better posture which eliminates back sway.
Cosmetic surgery is an increasingly common option for people who want to feel and look their best. In a lot of cases, diet and exercise is simply not enough to eliminate loose skin and pockets of fat that remain around the stomach despite all of your best effort. The only way to really complete the process of toning your midsection and being able to show off your abdominal muscles is by putting the finishing touches on your work by getting a tummy tuck.
Looking good is not only about appearances. It also helps you feel good about yourself and the medical benefits of self-esteem and stress reduction are not to be discounted. Even if you think you are considering a tummy tuck solely for cosmetic purposes you could be surprised at the medical benefits that are an added bonus.
