Man, clothing technology is changing at the speed of light. There are pants that can give you a Brazilian butt lift without the surgery, bras that can make boobs out of nothing and now there are swimsuits that can give you a tummy tuck!
This suit even claims to throw in a butt lift and boob job as a bonus. Does it do your taxes too?
Dad jokes aside, if you believe these suits are the miracles they claim to be, you are going to be sorely disappointed.
Are You Looking for a Temporary Fix?
Swimsuits like these, as well as shapewear and leggings with tummy control panels, are great for temporary fixes. Maybe you are a bit bloated and need to fit into that bodycon dress or its been a rough few months but this beach vacay is going to turn it around.
We fully support temporary fixes for temporary problems. But lasting issues need long-term solutions.
And you know what? That’s okay. No shame.
But you have to stop and ask yourself: is a temporary fix really what you want?
If you struggle with self-esteem because of the way your abdomen looks or you have a legit condition, such as diastasis recti, tossing on a flattering swimsuit that nips and tucks isn’t going to solve your problems.
Opting for the Long-Term Solution
If you want to still look and feel good when the clothes come off, you can’t beat a [url]tummy tuck[/url].
And remember, tummy tuck benefits go beyond just looking good. They repair muscles that have been damaged, remove excess skin that can cause fungal infections and they give you a needed boost to your self-esteem.
Depending on your situation, a tummy tuck may be as much of a need as it is a want.
Tummy Tuck Pros and Cons
Listen, we won’t act like getting a tuck is purely sunshine and rainbows. There are drawbacks to it, like:
- There is going to be a scar left behind
- Surgeries come with the risk of complications
- Pregnancy and weight gain can compromise the results
- The recovery period takes roughly two months
- And surgery costs more than a swimsuit
But if you are considering hiding behind a swimsuit that is glorified shapewear, that scar isn’t such a big deal. And surgery can always be that little treat you save up for.
On top of that, tummy tuck benefits are numerous. They can restore your confidence, as well as the function of your abdomen. Afterwards, it is easier to buy clothes, and you can even take risks with fashion you avoided before because of your stomach pooch. With the right surgeon, you can even get stretch marks removed during the procedure.
Sign me up for that!
Ultimately, there is a big difference between a miracle swim suit and tummy tuck surgery — both in terms of the pros and the cons. But if you are considering using clothing to mask the parts of yourself you wish you could change, maybe just sit down with a plastic surgeon to talk about changing them.
