2 Minute Read: 

For mothers who are constantly chasing after their children, or getting them to chase after their parents, excess belly fat and sagging skin can put a crimp in their activities. Many women experience these symptoms in the months and years following childbirth.

For women who maintain an active lifestyle, these conditions can range from mildly annoying to practically debilitating. A tummy tuck surgery can correct these conditions and restore a slim and toned abdomen. 

Increased Exercise Opportunities

A tummy tuck can make vigorous exercise far easier. Stubborn fat deposits in the abdomen can slow you down, and loose skin can be especially irritating when you sweat. Removing the unwanted physical side effects of a pregnancy or other significant weight loss can make it far easier to get out and move without worrying about your physical condition. 

A tummy tuck can make you look better too. Many women find themselves far more willing to engage in strenuous exercise and outdoor activities when they are comfortable and confident in their appearance. A tummy tuck can help provide that, giving women the confidence they need to go out and seize the day. 

What Outdoor Activities Are Easier for Women After Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Family Activities in Mesa, Arizona

Whether you are hiking the trails in the mountains east of the city or rafting along the salt river, staying active is not easy at the best of times. Staying active with kids is  even harder. Young kids always seem to have plenty of energy for running around at inopportune times and get tired just when it’s time for serious exercise. 

Dr. Hiatt can’t help your kid’s energy levels, but he can make it easier to keep up with them by repairing abdominal muscles and removing hanging abdominal skin that may be getting in your way.

If you are in Mesa, you may want to explore the hiking trails to the East or the swimming opportunities around Saguaro Lake. There are also a number of parks and hill trails within the city limits for easier activities with younger kids. Mesa also has several opportunities for fishing, off-road vehicles, or golf courses for those with kids who are a bit older.
