How Can I Regain My Flat Stomach After Having Kids?
Are you struggling to restore the once slimmer, more toned stomach and midsection you enjoyed prior to having children? You’re not alone. The vast majority of women find that even the healthiest diets and most rigorous exercise routines aren’t able to fully eliminate the loose skin and excess fat that generally accompanies pregnancy. The good news is, there are several cosmetic surgical options available today that can help address these specific concerns, the most effective of which is often tummy tuck surgery.
Medically referred to as abdominoplasty, tummy tuck surgery is a popular procedure designed to eliminate diet and exercise-resistant skin and fat in the abdominal region. During treatment, loose, redundant skin in the upper and/or lower abdomen can be excised, and underlying muscles that were stretched during pregnancy can be tightened. The remaining skin is then pulled taut, and if necessary, stubborn pockets of fat can be removed via liposuction (or other effective alternatives, such as HydraSolve™).
For women looking to take things a step further, abdominoplasty can often be combined with breast augmentation, mastopexy, breast reduction, and/or fat removal in various other regions of the body to formulate an inclusive Mommy Makeover. This surgical option is customized to comprehensively address each individual’s specific concerns that may have resulted from pregnancy and breastfeeding, including issues like volume loss and/or drooping in the breasts, excess fat deposits, stretch marks, and more.
Ultimately, everyone’s body reacts differently to pregnancy, and the most effective procedures for restoring a more toned and youthful-looking appearance will depend on your unique needs and desires. As a result, my advice is to seek the counsel of a board certified plastic surgeon who has extensive experience and demonstrable results in a wide of array of aesthetic surgical options to help ensure you receive the safest, most beneficial treatment for your goals.
