Is Your Stomach Not Quite the Same After Having a Child?

Published on April 28, 2017

Having a child is a wonderful thing, but that does not mean it is an easy or gentle process on the body. Pregnancy causes multiple dramatic changes in your figure, and areas like your abdomen can be permanently weakened as a result of pregnancy.

After pregnancy, some women experience a condition in their abdomen known as diastasis recti; this is a weakening of the abdominal wall and its muscles that causes the abdomen to bulge outward. Diet and exercise cannot eliminate or reduce the appearance of diastasis recti. The only way to correct the issue is through a surgical procedure like a tummy tuck.

Mothers in search of a way to restore the beauty of their bodies after pregnancy have found that the tummy tuck procedure provides outstanding results. It can improve the way their abdomen looks and feels. If you are interested in receiving a tummy tuck, contact us to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jarrod Little.
