It’s no secret that the tummy tuck is a key component of the “mommy makeover.” Removing flab and excess skin can give you that slimmer, tighter abdominal look you’ve been dreaming about. Whether heading to work or taking in the nightlife sights and sounds of Chicago, tummy tuck clients know firsthand the pride and confidence that come from knowing they look their very best. Many are surprised to learn that there are genuine medical benefits to the procedure. You can put a new spring in your step knowing that next time you hit the Riverwalk in Naperville, tummy tuck living is healthy living!

Ventral Hernia Repair

Let’s face it: the ventral hernia is about as much fun as it sounds. Intestinal or abdominal tissue can burst through the wall of your abdominal muscles, causing painful and unsightly protrusions. These most often occur in the wake of surgeries, such as a Caesarian section or appendectomy, and can at times result from rapid weight loss. Hernias can add pain and stress to an all ready difficult time in your life.

Many of our tummy tuck patients have been thrilled to learn that an abdominoplasty, the formal name for the tummy tuck, can often repair these hernias. With a treatment plan expertly designed by the Chicago tummy tuck leaders at the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute, you will not only look great on the outside, but feel great on the inside…and keep your insides from coming outside!

 

Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress Urinary Incontinence: three words you never want to see so close together! Unfortunately, many women learn after childbirth that there are some facts of life that were left out of “the talk.” Often, women are left to struggle with long-term postpartum urinary leaking. This is especially troublesome when coughing, sneezing, having intercourse, exercising, or laughing.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that you don’t have to laminate yourself or live in a protective bubble to avoid the embarrassment of incontinence. While some women can manage their SUI without surgery, for more more persistent cases, a well-performed tummy tuck offers an effective solution. Using pelvic-area soft tissue to craft a minor bladder divergence during the tummy tuck, abdominoplasty offers lasting relief. There’s no need to bring the Depends when you’re riding the train to Chicago, tummy tuck clients!

 

Posture and Tone

Weight fluctuations and pregnancies are among the culprits that put a lot of abuse on abdominal muscles. Stretching, distention, weakening, and repositioning can be unavoidable. Sometimes even the best moments of your life leave hidden damage in their wake, damage which neither diet nor exercise can reverse. Weakened abdominal muscles are a leading cause of hyperlordosis, sway or saddle back, a forward tilting of the pelvis causing your pelvic bone to rest on your thighs. Moderate to severe chronic back pain results from this condition.

A tummy tuck can not only give you the appearance of toned abs, but can tighten and strengthen the muscles your spine depends on for support. You’ll be walking tall again, so watch out, Naperville! Tummy tuck patients stand up straight not only out of pride in their ravishing appearance, but with a genuinely healthier posture.

Aside from the life-enriching benefits of the renewed self image you can receive from a successful tummy tuck performed by an expert surgical team, abdominoplasty offers legitimate medical benefits.
