07 Dec Is Your Stomach Sagging After Pregnancy? We’ve Got a Solution
Becoming a mom is a wonderful experience and one you wouldn’t trade for anything in the world; however, there is no denying that pregnancy and childbirth can take a rather hard toll on your body. And it’s your breasts and tummy that usually take the brunt of it – often developing loose skin marring their appearance. Luckily, this can easily be taken care of with the help of Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. John Park to give you back your pre-baby body using treatments such as abdominoplasty.
Even though you might not be too fond of your post-baby body, it’s natural to have excess skin in the abdominal region. During pregnancy, your abdomen grows as the baby grows. Because of this, the skin on your tummy is overstretched causing it to lose its elasticity. Once you give birth, that skin may not be able to retract back to its former shape and size leaving you with less-than-appealing sagging skin.
Firm Up Your Tummy with Abdominoplasty
Abdominoplasty is a successful body contouring procedure for removing excess skin and fat in the abdominal region. It can give you that flat and toned core you only remember from your no-baby days. It’s performed by making an incision in your pelvic region from hip bone to hip bone. You can either opt for a full abdominoplasty or a mini abdominoplasty depending on the amount of skin that needs to be excised. A mini abdominoplasty is used only to treat the region below the belly button and isn’t ideal for removing major excess skin.
With a full abdominoplasty, excess skin is cut away, abdominal muscles are repaired, and the skin is pulled taut. During pregnancy, your abdominal muscles can also be overly stretched and become separated resulting in a protruding belly. By repairing the muscles, you’re able to firm up your midsection and get that toned abdomen you thought was unachievable.
Add Lipo For Enhanced Results
Along with sagging skin, you can be left with stubborn pockets of fat after pregnancy. This fat is resistant to even your best efforts at dieting and exercise. Abdominoplasty only addresses loose skin, so another treatment modality such as liposuction is necessary to rid your body of these deposits of fat. Lipo can smooth your contours and slim your midsection to enhance your abdominoplasty results.
