After pregnancy and breastfeeding, it’s natural for mothers to seek a way to gain a flatter, tighter, more desirable midsection. This plight is so frequent among moms because of the toll that having children can take on the body. To combat this, double-board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stanley Okoro offers a tummy tuck procedure.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a body-sculpting treatment that surgically removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen while tightening the muscles that make up the abdominal walls. These muscles tend to become detached and loose during pregnancy and rarely heal on their own. Excess skin is also the product of rapid weight gain followed by an equally rapid weight loss. In addition, Dr. Okoro can remove stretch marks, especially those located below the belly button.
