How Can I Reduce Sagging Skin on my Stomach?
It is common for mothers to develop excess skin along the stomach area due to abdominal stretching and weight fluctuations during pregnancy. Although increased exercise and a modified diet after childbirth can result in fat reduction, weight loss cannot typically eliminate skin laxity. Additionally, slack abdominal muscles that were stretched or torn during pregnancy may also affect the abdomen’s appearance. Unfortunately, ab exercises cannot re-tighten these muscles to their original condition. However, with tummy tuck surgery, it is possible to address all of these key concerns to effectively smooth and tighten the stomach area for a slimmer, more toned appearance.
For mothers who wish to regain their pre-pregnancy figure, a tummy tuck can remove excess skin, while also tightening and repairing the underlying abdominal muscles. Whether you have had c-sections or natural childbirths, tummy tuck performed by our experienced plastic surgeons can recontour your midsection with long-lasting results. Some mothers even choose to combine tummy tuck surgery with additional complementary procedures, such as breast lift or liposuction, for a more comprehensive mommy makeover.
It is important to mention that although tummy tuck is popular among mothers, it is also a very effective procedure for patients who have accomplished significant weight loss. Often, dramatic weight loss results in excess skin along the abdomen, which can be repaired with a tummy tuck.
If you wish to eliminate skin laxity in your midsection, please contact Regional Plastic Surgery Center to schedule a consultation with one of our plastic surgeons.
