Pregnancy can have a profound impact on your entire body – though no area is altered as much as your midsection. As babies grow, so too does a mother’s abdominal area, a process made possible by the separation of stomach muscles and the stretching of skin. At the same time, nutrients required for a healthy baby begin to accumulate in fat deposits stored in the stomach area and, while these may diminish after the birth of your child, they often stubbornly remain despite diet and exercise.
If your efforts thus far have failed to produce the toned and strong midsection you desire, tummy tuck surgery may be the next logical step. Board-certified Naples plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña would be happy to meet with you for a tummy tuck consultation and to help you determine if this procedure can help you reach your specific goals.
Restoring Strength and Beauty
Tummy tuck surgery is used to address the largest issues resulting from pregnancy. This procedure allows separated abdominal muscles to be reattached and firmed. Tightening these muscles automatically slims the waist, allowing for more attractive curves as well.
By removing stubborn fat deposits and loose, sagging skin, tummy tuck surgery can also help reduce the prevalence of stretch marks. However, while this procedure can produce optimal contours and a slim and toned appearance, it is not able to remove stretch marks entirely.
If you are unhappy with several areas of your body following pregnancy, you may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover. This procedure focuses on several areas that can be altered by pregnancy, but is not necessary for every patient. Dr. Peña can help you determine if this procedure is right for you during your initial consultation.
