Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck Surgery
Pregnancy and substantial weight loss can result in excessive abdominal skin that is troublesome, embarrassing and extremely difficult or impossible to eliminate simply by dieting and working out. A tummy tuck, or excess skin removal surgery, is a great solution; it re-creates the flat, firm abdomen you’re looking for by removing that excess skin.
When the skin has been stretched for a long period of time, as it is during pregnancy or a long period of obesity, it loses its elasticity and cannot tighten to fit a smaller body. In addition, the abdominal wall muscles (rectus abdominis) can become stretched. This leaves some individuals with loose, hanging skin around the midsection. Folds in the excess skin are aesthetically displeasing and can cause discomfort and hygiene issues. A heavy lower abdominal fold (pannus) can also cause back pain.
