Pregnancy causes abdominal muscles to separate. This is essential to make room for your growing baby. It is also something that can prove next to impossible to reverse after your child has been born – even with consistent core exercises. In addition to separated muscles, fat deposits containing essential nutrients for babies in utero tends to accumulate in the abdominal area as well. As with the separated muscles, this fat may prove unresponsive to diet and exercise following the birth of your child.
These issues are often part of the reason women seek mommy makeover surgery. They are also two of the basic problems tummy tuck surgery addresses. This is why tummy tuck surgery is typically included in a mommy makeover.
During tummy tuck surgery, board-certified Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole removes excess skin and fat from the midsection and tightens abdominal muscles to both strengthen the core and tone the waist. Tummy tuck surgery can also help reduce the prevalence of stretch marks and produce a much more toned and attractive appearance to the stomach, waist, and hips.
When selected as part of a mommy makeover, tummy tuck may be combined with additional breast and body procedures to ensure all areas impacted by pregnancy and nursing are brought to their most ideal appearance. Which areas of your body will respond most favorably to mommy makeover surgery can be discussed in greater detail during your free consultation with Dr. O’Toole.
