Even when following a healthy lifestyle, however, it can be difficult to erase the lasting effects of pregnancy, such as loose skin and stubborn areas of fat in the midsection. If you’re having difficulty restoring your figure to what it once was, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck.

Tummy tuck surgery is a highly beneficial cosmetic procedure that addresses excess skin and fat in the abdomen, which often results from the area being stretched during pregnancy. For many patients, the abdominal muscles will also be reconnected in the center, as they can separate during pregnancy. Once the excess skin is removed, the remaining skin is re-draped and tightened. The navel is then stitched back into place. A mini tummy tuck is an option for some. With this procedure, the belly button stays in place and less tissue is removed.

Each tummy tuck procedure is fully customized to the unique needs and goals of the patient to provide the best possible outcome.

Should you desire additional treatments, tummy tuck surgery can be combined with other surgical or non-surgical procedure in what is known as a mommy makeover.
