How Does A Tummy Tuck Help With Urinary Incontinence?
With the increasing popularity of tummy tuck surgery, most people are now somewhat familiar with its exciting benefits, including a woman’s opportunity to transform her midsection after having children. A lesser-known complaint that can often be improved with tummy tuck surgery is stress urinary incontinence. Award-winning board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Hakimi understands the frustrating nature of urinary incontinence after childbirth or aging and is proud to help patients restore their pelvic floor function, confidence, and ability to live life freely with advanced tummy tuck surgery in Beverly Hills, CA.
What does a tummy tuck do?
Abdominoplasty surgery, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is often considered one of the most transformative and beneficial cosmetic surgeries available, thanks in part to the long list of concerns that it can address. Without a doubt, excess skin removal and skin tightening after pregnancy are one of the primary applications for a tummy tuck. Additional cosmetic benefits of tummy tuck surgery may include:
- Body contouring
- Excess skin removal
- Skin tightening
- Flatter abdomen
- Restore pre-pregnancy figure
- Remove stubborn fat (liposuction)
- Slimmer waist
- Get rid of stomach pooch or pouch
Does a tummy tuck improve your health?
In addition to the extraordinary cosmetic enhancements that can be made during tummy tuck in Beverly Hills, patients may be surprised to learn about the health benefits of abdominoplasty. Pregnancy, weight fluctuation, and aging can all wreak havoc on a person’s body and compromise the integrity and function of many abdominal structures, including the abdominal fascia and pelvic floor muscles. This often leads to a host of unwanted symptoms, including stress urinary incontinence (SUI), ventral hernia, poor posture, and more. By addressing the underlying structural problems causing these issues, Dr. Hakimi can dramatically improve a patient’s overall function and well-being. Medical benefits of a tummy tuck may include:
- Muscle tightening
- Fix a hernia
- Repair diastasis recti (separated abdominal muscles)
- Strengthen/reinforce pelvic floor muscles
- Improve stress urinary incontinence
- Better posture
- Ability to exercise more comfortably
- Boost self-esteem
During your initial consultation for Beverly Hills tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Hakimi will discuss your concerns, evaluate your midsection, answer all of your questions at length, and determine whether tummy tuck can help you achieve your ultimate cosmetic and functional goals.
How does tummy tuck help with incontinence?
Incontinence, which refers to the inability to control urine, is a frustrating and embarrassing condition. While there are varying types and degrees of incontinence, stress urinary incontinence is fairly common – particularly among women who have had one or more children. Weight fluctuation, aging, injury, and other factors can also contribute to stress urinary incontinence, which is characterized by leaking urine with cough, sneeze, laugh, jump, or other strain. During tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Hakimi is able to strategically tighten and reinforce the muscles around the pelvic floor, urethra, and other structures. This increased strength and support greatly reduces stress urinary incontinence. In some cases, patients’ SUI symptoms may vanish completely after abdominoplasty. Depending on the nature and severity of your incontinence, Dr. Hakimi will recommend the most appropriate surgical plan for you.
