Tighter Tummy After Pregnancy?
Today’s mommy makeover shows a 1 year post op liposuction + tummy tuck + fatgrafting to the butt and hips. Patient: 40 years old, 5’6, 216 lbs. Its never too late to be the best you!
Unfortunately, even for moms who work diligently to shed baby weight, skin stretched by pregnancy (especially multiple pregnancies) doesn’t shrink to fit after the fat is gone. Instead, it remains loose and wrinkly. A tummy tuck does more than remove excess skin. Pregnancy often stretches the abdominal muscles to the point where they separate along the center of the abdomen and cause the belly to protrude (rectus diastasis). During a tummy tuck, we are able to repair the diastasis. See previous post for patient demographics “Beauty Wire”
