As a baby grows in utero, abdominal muscles stretch and separate to provide more room. As abdominal muscles separate, skin in the midsection stretches to accommodate the growing baby, and fat deposits accumulate in the hips and waist to provide needed nutrients.
For some women, diet and exercise following pregnancy are enough to address these issues. However, many women find conventional methods insufficient at restoring the body they once knew. When this is the case, a mommy makeover procedure may be the most effective way to reclaim your body.
Board-certified Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole has over 25 years of experience customizing mommy makeover procedures. During your free Los Angeles mommy makeover consultation he will examine the ways pregnancy has changed your body and help you determine which procedures will best produce the results you desire.
Tummy Tuck as Part of a Mommy Makeover
Tummy tuck surgery is common as part of the mommy makeover procedure. As if designed for the postpartum body, tummy tuck surgery is capable of:
- Removing excess skin and fat from the stomach, hips, and waist
- Eliminating stretch marks
- Firming and tightening abdominal muscles
Tummy tuck is not always a part of the mommy makeover procedure, but is of great benefit in many instances. Dr. O’Toole can best help you determine if tummy tuck surgery should be part of your mommy makeover during your initial body contouring consultation.
