Abdominoplasty or most commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes the loose skin and fat from the abdomen, and tightens the abdominal muscles so that it appears flat and toned. Weak abdominal muscles are often associated with lordosis, or sway back. After a tummy tuck, patients may notice that they have an improvement in posture, because of the tightened muscles supporting their spine. With the improved support the tightened muscles offer the spine and better posture that occurs, it can be seen as an added benefit of bringing relief to certain types of back pain. Many may seek a tummy tuck for cosmetic reasons, but there can be several medical benefits to be gained after the procedure.
