Any recommendations to tighten loose abdominal skin non surgically? Left with a bit of a "sag" after my lovely c section

Any recommendations to tighten loose abdominal skin non surgically? Left with a bit of a "sag" after my lovely c section

Does a mini tummy tuck address abdominal separation? My abs separated when i was pregnant. Would they be repaired as part of a mini tummy tuck?

.

Mini results: Yes, abdominal muscles are repaired in a mini tummy tuck, below the belly button. They can be repaired above the belly button, but then your belly button moves down quite a bit.

Mini tummy tuck is different from a regular tummy tuck in what way?

Mini tummy tuck is different from a regular tummy tuck in what way?

Upper vs. Lower: A mini-tummy tuck will not address looseness of the upper abdomen, only the skin below the belly button. It is still surgery, usually done with general anesthesia, so it should not be thought of as a less invasive procedure. There are still surgical risks which is why you should make sure to discuss this, or any plastic surgery procedure, with a board-certified plastic surgeon. ...Read more

Strenuous jobs take longer. ...Read more

Will getting a tummy tuck remove all fat?

Will getting a tummy tuck remove all fat?

No: No cosmetic procedures will remove ALL of the fat in an area. Nor would you want this, it wouldn't look nice. Because not all of the fat is removed, it is still possible to store fat in a treated area (it will just generally store less there b/c there are fewer cells), so healthy lifestyle choices are essential to maintaining any result. http://www.omahacosmeticsurgery.com/ ...Read more
