Atlanta Residents Want to Know: Can Tummy Tucks Reduce Back Pain?

Following childbirth or extreme weight loss, you may still be carrying around the weight of your past. With the help of a tummy tuck, you can ditch the excess skin and weight that is causing you pain.

For many people, the weight of sagging stomach skin can be incredibly painful. On top of the chafing and pain that the skin causes, it can also lead to severe back pain. This pain is manageable through a tummy tuck.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin from the abdomen. This procedure is medically referred to as an abdominoplasty. This surgical procedure tightens the muscles that are loose in the abdomen, removes the excess skin and fat, and contours the belly to look more toned.

How Does a Tummy Tuck Reduce Back Pain?

When you carry children in your abdomen or carry around a lot of weight for years on end, your muscles tend to loosen. These loosened muscles can put a strain on your back muscles. Additionally, carrying excess weight on your front puts an added toll on your back.

How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?

The cost of a tummy tuck is unique to each patient. Because every stomach is different, every tummy tuck will be different. The cost is directly affected by how invasive and how much work the procedure will need to be. Because this is an elective procedure, a tummy tuck is often not covered by your insurance. In this instance, we offer financing through CareCredit® and Alphaeon™ Credit.

What Will My Stomach Look Like After a Tummy Tuck?

You may be wondering what your stomach will look like after a tummy tuck. Because each patient comes in with a different looking stomach, each result will be slightly different, but the overall goal is the same. Before and after pictures are a great way to see how other patients look after a tummy tuck.
