Childbirth is an incredible life experience, but it can also leave behind some lingering effects that might seem less than ideal. If you’re dealing with sagging breasts or a loose tummy after your last pregnancy, a mommy makeover might very well be the perfect procedure for you, enabling you to regain a trim figure and enjoy a more youthful look.
The Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Another issue that can result from pregnancy is the permanent stretching of the abdominal skin and sometimes even the separation of the two abdominal muscles – which can leave a permanently visible gap between them. This gap in the musculature can result in pain and discomfort when exercising or lifting objects, while stretched skin results in scarring and stretch marks. Fortunately, these issues can be successfully addressed with abdominoplasty, more commonly called a tummy tuck.
This procedure sculpts the abdominal area when an excess of sagging skin has accumulated due to major weight loss and/or changes after pregnancy. In a ‘tummy tuck,’ the abdominal “six-pack” muscles are tightened, and loose skin is tightened over the front of the abdomen, while liposuction is also performed in the majority of cases involving excess fat deposits. The result is an overall tighter and more toned abdominal area, free of loose, hanging skin or excess fatty deposits.
