Can I Have a Flat Stomach After Having Children?
For many women who have had children, the abdomen may appear to protrude or bulge to a greater degree than the appearance of their midsection prior to getting pregnant. In general, this is largely caused by the underlying abdominal muscles separating throughout pregnancy, which may or may not be accompanied by excess fat deposits and loose skin. In some cases, this can be a significant aesthetic concern that only improves marginally with dieting and exercise. For patients who visit Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, our board-certified plastic surgeon based in Orlando, it can be difficult or near impossible to obtain a flat stomach again after pregnancy due to the weakening of skin, fat, and muscles in their abdomen. Fortunately, a Mommy Makeover is precisely designed to repair these concerns and help you regain your pre-pregnancy figure via custom-tailored treatments.
If your goal is to reclaim a tighter, slimmer look in the stomach, a majority of mothers opt to include a tummy tuck in their Mommy Makeovers. This popular procedure can address the entirety of loose tissue in the abdomen, as well as bring together separated abdominal muscles to achieve a smoother appearance. Results vary from patient to patient, but our before-and-after photos can provide an excellent idea of how a Mommy Makeover can help achieve a flatter tummy after having children.
While dieting and exercise can only do so much to improve your body contour after having children, there are several effective options to repair weakened abdominal tissue and restore a smooth, taut midsection.
