Can a mini tummy tuck help me have smoother stomach, tighter skin? I have loose skin and separated abdominal muscles from two pregnancies. I am really embarrassed by the way they look. Can a mini tummy tuck help me get a smoother stomach back?

Maybe? : Generally, the mini tummy tuck is an  operation that  produces very limited results and is very rarely indicated. It involves a shorter incision but does not address the majority of the abdominal wall issues present for most patients who present consultation, after pregnancy and/or weight gain/loss. Seek consultation with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons for more precise advice. ...Read more

Help! need to know if there's any way to get rid of loose skin after pregnancy other than tummy tuck?

Loose Skin?: If it is loose skin you are wanting to eliminate, a tummy tuck would not be necessary. If, however, you are also wanting to tighten the muscles (repair a muscle separation), then yes, a tummy tuck is your only answer. A panniculectomy would address loose skin. Diet and exercise always helps, but it won't help a separated muscle or excessive, loose skin. ...Read more

Can you tell me about a tummy tuck to remove streth marks and loose skin and to repair a colapsed stomach wall was it?

Understand options: The best procedure depends on several factors. Liposuction only removes fat and it depends on intact elastic skin and good underlying musculature to achieve a satisfactory outcome. A mini tumy tuck will treat lax skin or scar as well as widened muscles below the belly button. If you have either of the latter conditions, a mini tummy tuck may be a better option for you.

Yes: After pregnancy, particularly after twins, the skin and fascia of the abdomen have often been stretched beyond their ability to shrink back. Exercising the muscles will tighten them but won't remove the excess skin or separation that may exist between the muscles. A tummy tuck is a reliable way to get rid of the skin and tighten the fascia. See a board certified plastic surgeon for a consult. ...Read more
