Tummy tuck surgery is incredibly effective at toning the midsection and producing a much more sculpted look. By removing excess skin and stubborn fat deposits, as well as tightening core muscles, tummy tuck surgery is a fantastic way to reclaim your stomach following pregnancy.

Because it addresses issues such as separated stomach muscles and stretch marks, tummy tuck surgery is commonly part of the mommy makeover procedure.

Los Angeles tummy tuck surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole respects the individual needs of each patient he sees, but often recommends waiting to undergo tummy tuck surgery until you are through having children. During your free tummy tuck consultation he can discuss this with you in greater detail and help you determine when the best time is for your procedure.

Why Wait?

Pregnancy impacts the body in very specific ways. As a baby grows, stomach muscles separate to provide room, fat deposits necessary for nutrients accumulate in the hips and waist, and skin begins to stretch.

Tummy tuck surgery addresses these issues, but cannot prevent them. In all likelihood, pregnancy following tummy tuck surgery will undo your results. To avoid this, it is often best to wait until you are done having children before having tummy tuck surgery.
