Treating C-Section Scars, Stretch Marks and Sagging Skin All at Once
Many women are often left feeling uncomfortable or self-conscious about their bodies after pregnancy. Stretch marks, stubborn deposits of fat, and excess skin are left behind and seemingly impossible to get lose. Those who give birth through a C-Section are also left with a large, unsightly scar that is often in plain sight.
Tummy tucks (abdominoplasty) have gained extreme popularity with mothers because of their incredible results. Mothers are finally able to improve the appearance of the various post-pregnancy issues to get back their pre-baby figures.
How a Tummy Tuck in Oklahoma City, OK Can Help
The tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that involves a horizontal incision made between the naval and the pubic hairline. With this incision location, post-surgical incision lines can be easily concealed beneath most underwear and even a bikini or lingerie.
Bye Bye Sagging Skin
Loose, excess skin is one of the most frustrating problems that women face after pregnancy. Why? Because no matter how much you exercise or how strict your diet, the skin simply will not tighten up. Throughout the nine months of pregnancy, a woman’s belly is stretched out far beyond its usual size. Oftentimes, once the skin has lost its elasticity, it cannot return to its original tightness. The main purpose of the tummy tuck is to address these areas of excess skin in order to achieve a smooth contour of the abdomen.
Losing That Stubborn Baby Fat
While a tummy tuck is not a fat removal procedure, it can be safely combined with liposuction for better results. During a tummy tuck in Oklahoma City, OK, your plastic surgeon can use liposuction to remove excess fat deposits for an even flatter belly.
Reducing Stretch Marks And C-Section Scars
During a tummy tuck procedure, your plastic surgeon may be able to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks by removing them with the excess skin. Although a tummy tuck will leave its own incision lines after surgery, it is much less visible than a C-Section scar and can be kept out of sight easily.
