With all the stress we put on our midsections—during pregnancy or with weight gain and loss—it’s no wonder that, as we age, the shape and size of our stomachs change. When diet and exercise don’t provide the results that you want, a surgical procedure like a tummy tuck (or lipoabdominoplasty) may be your best option, assuming you and Dr. Soltero agree that you are a good candidate for this procedure.
A tummy tuck permanently restores firmness to the stomach and removes any loose skin. During the procedure, an incision is made at the pubic bone (your scar, once healed, will be concealed by bathing suits and underwear) through which Dr. Soltero will tighten up the muscles. Small pockets of fat can be removed with liposuction. Once the muscles are tightened— Dr. Soltero will make the muscles as tight as possible so that the stomach will keep its new shape as long as possible—and the excess skin is removed.
Depending on the extent of your particular post-pregnancy concerns, there are a variety of tummy tuck procedures that treat different degrees of muscle and skin laxity. Some procedures are performed with limited incisions and leave shorter scars.
