In a recent article for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, we discuss the most common questions women have about recovery after labiaplasty.
Why is a tummy tuck such a popular procedure? As women, our weight changes naturally throughout our lives. These fluctuations with the additional stretching from pregnancy create sagging skin and a loose abdominal wall. Pregnancy stretches you from the inside out, stretching the core muscles of your “six-pack” and your overlying skin. Even maximal weight loss after pregnancy cannot restore the pre-pregnancy figure you are used to seeing in the mirror for the prior 20 or 30 years. Your husband may be able to wear the same clothes from your wedding day, but nature is working against you in this case! A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, may be the solution.
