Any recommendations to tighten loose abdominal skin non surgically? Left with a bit of a "sag" after my lovely c section
I can not offer...: ...much encouragement here. Clearly the definitive treatment for sagging abdominal fat/skin or panniculus is surgical.

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.

It is still surgery, usually done with general anesthesia, so it should not be thought of as a less invasive procedure.
