Weight gain and pregnancy can stretch the abdominal skin. Even after the weight has been lost the skin might not fully return to its original condition or position. In addition, stretched out underlying abdominal muscles will also contribute to a prominent abdomen.
If you are uncomfortable with the appearance of an abdominal bulge with loose, hanging skin, you should consider scheduling a consultation with Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis. During the appointment, they can assess your concerns and determine if the tummy tuck is right for you.
It’s important to understand that abdominoplasty is not intended to be a weight loss program. This method of treatment is not designed to remove excess pounds, and cannot effectively treat health complications or conditions related to obesity.
