Is Your Stomach Sagging After Pregnancy? We’ve Got a Solution

Having children is a beautiful experience. However, what is less beautiful is what childbearing can do to your body. Especially after multiple pregnancies, you may feel as though your once tight and toned figure is looking less svelte than you remember. While some women choose to embrace this mom body, there is certainly no obligation to settle, especially if you are still wishing for the slimmer, more sculpted figure of your pre-children days. So, rest assured that if your stomach–or anywhere else on your body– is sagging after pregnancy, you have options.

Consider a Tummy Tuck

One of the most effective ways to address unwanted stomach sagging is with a tummy tuck. This procedure will lift the entire abdominal wall, before pulling it down and redraping it, so that it is tight and firm. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, resulting in a redefined waist. Whether you simply have excess skin, or if you have developed rectus diastasis (stretched abdominal muscles), a tummy tuck could be the right choice for you.

It is important to note that, although effective at creating a more sculpted and flatter midsection, a tummy tuck is not a replacement for weight loss. As a result, you will want to make sure that you are following proper diet and exercise routines before the procedure, so that you have lost most of your desired weight. Think of the tummy tuck as the final touch, to bring you back to the shape you desire.

Need More Than Just the Tummy Tucked?

In many cases, pregnancy impacts the tightness not just of the stomach area, but of the entire body. If you feel that a combination of tummy tuck, liposuction and breast enhancement may be better suited to your needs, then a Mommy Makeover may be what you have been seeking.
