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. The irregularities in the skin are improved but patients do have a scar that can take some time to heal. The pictures shown are at 6 weeks and the scar is still red and it is important to massage the scar at this phase in order to help the scar fade and mature.
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.
