Get Your Pre-Pregnancy Body With a Modified Tummy Tuck
Even if you are super vigilant about weight gain and exercise during pregnancy, your skin still gets stretched and your body shape changes. Losing weight through eating well and working out can help get the extra fat off of your body that was necessary for pregnancy, but sometimes there is that little extra that just seems to hold on! One way to get back your figure, besides careful nutrition and exercise, is with a Modified Tummy Tuck.
The Modified Tummy Tuck, a procedure by Dr. Cortes in PLACE is different from regular tummy tuck procedures, and it is especially beneficial to women who have been through a recent pregnancy.
Many times during pregnancy, the muscles in your abdominals can become weakened, or even separated. When this happens, it causes the tummy to pooch out, even after you lose weight, because the muscles cannot hold. Add on top if that the extra sagging skin you develop during pregnancy. The Modified Tummy Tuck fixes this by going beyond the traditional tuck and actually correcting the muscles underneath. This allows your muscles to properly heal, and hold the abdominals in again; making your stomach smaller and giving you better posture. If you have a long enough torso, you can also choose to have your belly button lowered. This allows you to have a less noticeable scar, and shortens your lower abdomen for flatter abs. Finally your skin is pulled tautly down as in a regular tummy tuck.
Regaining your pre-baby body again is possible! By repairing the abdominal muscles, you will ensure that you get your abs back in shape, while the tummy tuck takes care of the excess skin! By taking care of yourself with proper diet and exercise, and a little extra help from a Modified Tummy Tuck, you’ll be ready for that bikini again!
