How a Tummy Tuck Treats a Post-Baby Belly Bulge

Pregnancy is a very special time and, with the effort your body puts into creating a whole new life, it’s no wonder that you can be left with some less-than-magical effects on your figure. If you’ve been following a healthy diet and exercise routine since the birth of your child, but aren’t seeing the results you’d like, a tummy tuck could be a great way to get that pre-pregnancy tummy back.

Remove Excess Skin and Belly Fat

While a tummy tuck isn’t intended as a weight loss aid, the act of removing any excess skin left behind after your pregnancy can also tackle some of that stubborn fat which won’t budge despite a healthy, active lifestyle.

If stubborn fat is a big issue for you after pregnancy, you may wish to speak to your cosmetic surgeon about combining a tummy tuck with liposuction.

During your initial consultation, you and your cosmetic surgeon can work together to come up with the best solution for you, which may also involve liposuction.

Tighten Abdominal Muscles

Another common side effect of pregnancy are weakened stomach muscles, also known as diastasis recti. Unfortunately, exercise alone sometimes isn’t enough to correct diastasis recti. A tummy tuck after pregnancy can repair separated, lax muscles to get rid of that post-baby belly bulge standing between you and the figure you really deserve. What’s more, a tummy tuck can also strengthen the abdominal wall, leaving you in a good place to continue with your workouts once you’ve recovered.
