Abdominoplasty, Health Benefits as well as Good Looks!

big saggy bellyIn today’s world, a big saggy belly isn’t exactly what one would call socially acceptable. It is clear by the number of people getting plastic surgery, that having a well shaped and toned body is becoming a necessity. Abdominoplasty, better known as the tummy tuck, is one of the most sought out procedures to remove excess stomach fat. Losing the extra stomach mass not only ensures good looks, it also has healthy benefits. Ever since medical tourism became popular, more and more people have begun to fly away to get affordable plastic surgery without having to compromise health safety. A large increase in medical tourist from the US and Canada have made Costa Rica a favoured destination for plastic surgery.

Going out of shape is a gradual process that is a result of poor eating habits and lack of physical activities. The best reason to have the tummy tuck surgery is to remove sagging skin or loose tissue as a result of major weight loss or pregnancy. In the human body, there are two types of abdominal fat deposition known as the apple shaped belly, and the pear shaped belly.

The apple shaped belly is much more prone to heart conditions because the fat concentration is mainly around the mid abdomen. The pear shaped belly, also known as the stubborn fat is formed due to an increase in the deposit of fat around the hips and thighs.

Abdominoplasty is a procedure performed under anaesthesia and may last longer than 3 hours. There are certain things you should not do before having this surgery, but mostly you should avoid strenuous physical activities for long periods of time before and after the surgery.

The tummy tuck is a surgery that has helped improved the quality of the way people live; it has been known to help improve people’s social and professional lives.
