Tummy Tuck Increases Motivation for Continued Weight LossPosted on April 21, 2008
If you were to assume that patients hate their stomachs after tummy tuck then you may never have guessed it that this procedure stands as one of the most satisfied cosmetic procedures to date. Now there is even more evidence showing the reason why it is so popular. Swiss researchers recently found that bariatric patients who underwent tummy tuck surgery to remove excess skin are more likely to keep the weight off following procedures.
Researchers claim that body contouring after bariatric bypass aims to give patients the ability to enjoy greater health benefits, including the motivation to manage their weight. Men and women who lose a substantial amount of weight through bariatric bypass surgery or achieved weight loss by diet and exercise, usually possess excess skin and fat in the back and abdominal areas.
The study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that the positive impact after gastric bypass in conjunction with body contouring led to better long-term weight control and quality of life.
Generally speaking, the reason for continued weight loss was that once patients saw the results they were searching for they gain the inspiration to maintain the healthy weight well beyond body contouring procedures.

What Does Body Contouring Address After Weight Loss?
The other reasons why tummy tuck delivers such satisfying results are the three features it repairs that diet and exercise cannot change on their own. What are the body contouring features you have to look forward to, you may ask:
- No more saggy abdominal skin
- Repair impacted muscles for flat abdominals
- Eliminated pockets of fat
