While the Tummy Tuck procedure is known for and still classified as a cosmetic procedure, the benefits of a Tummy Tuck can extend to the reconstructive arena. The Tummy Tuck procedure, also known as an Abdominoplasty, can repair abdominal muscles that have been stretched out, improve back pain, and correct urinary incontinence after childbearing. Tummy Tuck procedures are largely popular among women in their early 40’s who have given birth. Back pain and urinary incontinence are common issues for women who have given birth. In a recent study, 51% of women indicated moderate to severe back pain, with urinary incontinence being considerable concern for 42.5% of these women. In follow-up’s with these women just six months after having the Tummy Tuck procedure, only 9% of them still had moderate back pain and urinary incontinence consisted in less than 2% of them.
