After your baby is delivered, long, sleepless nights may not be the only thing giving you the blues. Pregnancy can certainly take a toll on woman’s body, all too often leaving behind a saggy belly in its wake. Here are three ways a tummy tuck can help you fight back against your post-baby bump.*
1. Repairs Separated Abdominal Muscles
While most women think of pregnancy stretching out their skin, the underlying muscles stretch as well, often separating down the midline. Your body may be unable to correct that separation on its own, but a tummy tuck can repair your abdominal muscles.*
2. Targets Belly Fat
No matter how hard you try to be healthy during your pregnancy, putting on some amount of baby weight is inevitable, and not all of that extra fat melts away with diet and exercise later on. During an abdominoplasty, excess fatty tissue around the midsection is removed, or can be sculpted away by combining a tummy tuck with liposuction.*
3. Improves the Appearance of the Entire Abdomen
Feeling unhappy with the appearance of your belly is about more noticing a few extra pounds. Problems like excess skin or separated muscles can’t be corrected by cutting back calories or starting a new yoga class. A tummy tuck changes the shape and contour of the waistline.*
