If you suffer from saggy skin on your tummy after having children, you are not alone. It’s a common problem that many mothers live with after giving birth. During pregnancy, a woman’s skin expands to accommodate their growing baby. Because skin is made of collagen and elastin, it may struggle to return to its original shape once it is stretched.
Unfortunately, diet and exercise won’t necessarily fix the problem. This can, of course, be emotionally aggravating for women who want their bodies to go back to how they were prior to pregnancy. For some women, their loose skin may hang down down over their lower abdomen. If you have had a Cesarean delivery, then there may be skin sagging over the C-section cut.
Along with living with loose skin after giving birth, some women may also suffer from diastasis recti, or muscle separation. Research suggests that at least 60 percent of women suffer from DR six weeks after birth and 30 percent of women have it a year after birth or longer.
However, if you are one of the lucky ones that have not developed muscle separation post pregnancy, then mini VASER lipo-abdominoplasty may be all that you need to get you a flat, sculpted tummy.
