Nothing can compare to the joys of motherhood. However, it is common for new moms to wish they could reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies. According to In Touch Magazine, Jessica Simpson is considering a tummy tuck to do just that.
After childbirth, many women find that despite a healthy diet and exercise program, it is difficult to lose their “baby pooch.” This is because during pregnancy, skin and muscle stretch as the body expands. Though a beautiful natural process, this leaves many with undesirable, sagging skin and excess fat on the lower part of the abdomen. The best way to remedy this is by undergoing an abdominoplasty.
An abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, addresses the three layers of the abdomen to create a more slender and toned midsection. During the procedure, excess skin below the belly button is removed and the skin above the belly button is then stretched down to create a flatter as well as more flattering appearance. Results can be seen immediately following your tummy tuck.
If your labor experiences included having a cesarean section, do not fret! In some cases, we can even use the same pre-made incision point to reduce further scaring. Any visible scar is usually hidden under your bikini line and will eventually become less noticeable in time with the proper care.
Please note that long-lasting results rely on maintaining a healthy weight and we recommend waiting until after you are done having children to have a tummy tuck in Chicago with board-certified Oak Brook plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Marschall.
