The Benefits of a Tummy Tuck


If you’ve been considering a tummy tuck but you don’t know what the benefits are, here’s a quick rundown of the major advantages to help you to make up your mind.
The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a common surgical procedure and it’s performed to remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal area to leave tight skin and a firmer stomach.
It’s very effective and most people who undergo an abdominoplasty are those who have lost a lot of weight and women who have had several children, especially twins, and who want to regain their former figures.
The stomach is a hard area to tone up and to lose fat from and it’s even more difficult if the skin has been stretched by pregnancy or weight gain. No matter how hard someone works, the bulge stays the same and so surgery is the only option.
Feelings of embarrassment over a flabby midriff can affect someone’s confidence – they can’t wear a bikini, or shorts, or even go to the pool. A tummy tuck operation from Mr Ross of Manchester can restore confidence as well as offer health benefits.

Tummy tucks remove excess skin

Excess skin is often left behind after the fat has been lost or the baby has been born and it’s impossible to lose this. The skin loses its elasticity and can form an “apron” over the lower stomach, leading to problems with chafing and yeast infections, as well as low self-esteem and lifestyle restrictions.

The post-partum tummy

Women who have had children often find that their stomachs don’t snap back into shape, especially if they gained a lot of weight or had twins. Sometimes the muscles around the abdomen get separated and exercise isn’t enough to knit them back together. This condition, called diastasis recti, leads to a permanent pouch effect, which in turn can lead to posture and back problems. Abdominoplasty can fix these muscles and tidy up the outside too – a perfect solution.

Stretch marks
 
 
Stretch marks are the bane of most pregnant women and although they fade, the skin never returns to its original smoothness and tightness. This can cause a lot of embarrassment and is often hailed as the “end of the bikini days”. A tummy tuck can remove some or even all of these marks, leading to a smoother, tighter appearance.

The abdominal muscles

These muscles were mentioned before, but they’re so important that they deserve another! The core muscles can be stretched, separated and weakened after pregnancy, and this can make it very hard (and very painful) for women to take up an exercise regime. Over time the weak muscles put a strain on the back, making the situation even worse, so surgery can help women to regain their posture, core strength and fitness, as well as their looks.

To sum up

Whether it’s just removal of loose skin, or of fat and stretch marks, or the re-joining of separated muscles, a tummy tuck offers patients lots of visible and invisible benefits; most patients are delighted with their results and readily recommend the surgery to others.

HEMA Beauty Haul

I recently discovered a new shop called HEMA which sells lots of gorgeous homeware items, kids items, stationery and more importantly beauty items. I got a few things and I wanted to share them with you because I've been really loving them and also they're super affordable which is always a bonus.


The first thing I got was hand cream, I'm addicted to hand cream and I have tubes of it everywhere, in my house, in the car, in my handbag, everywhere! I hate, hate, hate having dry hands and because I have kids I'm always washing my hands or cleaning and they get so dry and rough it's awful so I get through a ton of hand cream. I love this one though because it smells great, keeps my hands super soft and lasts for ages on my skin.

The next thing I got were the eyelash curlers, now I've been a Shu Uemura eyelash curler fan for years and years and I wouldn't consider any other brand but recently I felt like a change and decided to give the HEMA ones a try and they are amazing! I absolutely love them and will definitely be re-purchasing when they wear out, they give my lashes a good curl without pinching my skin or trapping my lashes plus they were really cheap at just £3.

I've been using the Benefit High Beam highlighter for as long as I can remember and it recently ran out, it's pretty pricey and I just couldn't justify buying a new one so I wanted to try a cheaper alternative which is why I picked up the HEMA highlighter pen and I love it. It's really easy to use and the brush tip makes it super quick and mess free to apply, it gives a really pretty sheen to my cheekbones and brow bone and I'm really happy with it.

Lastly I picked up some body lotion because I needed some and it was only £3, it smells great and leaves my skin feeling really smooth and hydrated. I've been using it every day and I really like how it feels on my skin, I'll definitely buy it again.

If you're on the look out for some affordable but great quality beauty items then I really recommend giving HEMA a try, I'm a big fan.
