Try a Tummy Tuck Mommy Makeover!


Pregnancy puts a lot of strain on the midsection, as well as the accompanying weight gain and loss. So, it is not a surprise that many women have sagging issues in the abdominal region after they have children. If diet and exercise do not give you the results you desire, you may consider a mommy makeover that includes a tummy tuck (lipoabdominoplasty).

A tummy tuck will firm up your stomach permanently and take away any loose skin remaining after your pregnancy or weight loss. During the operation, an incision will be made by Dr. Fiorillo at the pubic bone (don’t worry – the scar will be concealed by your underwear or bathing suit). It is through this incision that your doctor will tighten the muscles of the abdomen. At the same time, Dr. Fiorillo can remove any small fat pockets with liposuction.

Your doctor will make the stomach muscles as tight as is most ideal, and then any extra skin will be cut away.

Depending upon the exact nature of your post-pregnancy or weight loss issues, there are several types of mommy makeover tummy tuck operations that Dr. Fiorillo may recommend. Which one he uses depends upon how tight or lax the muscles are, and how much excess skin remains. Some of these procedures can be performed with smaller incisions and scars.

If you have had a C-section, you are in luck! This scar can be either used or removed during the procedure, so you will have just one scar.
