With pregnancy, the layers of the abdominal wall are stretched and the skin is stretched. The amount of skin excess removed is from just above the pubic hairline up to the level of the tummy button. The remaining skin is dissected and pulled down.
Often liposuction is required around the flanks to reduce the chance of dog ear formation postoperatively. The results seen after a few months show the improvement in contour that is already noticeable. Often where the skin is very tight in the lower abdomen a small vertical scar is required in order to reduce tension in the skin closure.
At a consultation, It is important to run through all the pros and cons and the various options of abdominal rejuvenation surgery and to look at preop and postop images so that you can be empowered to proceed or not to proceed.
