Tummy Tuck – Does It Work?

Women who have gone through multiple pregnancies usually suffer from a problem known as diastalsis, where the abdominal muscles separate. The abdominal muscles of women overstretch and are not able to return back to their original shape.  In addition, the skin over these muscles also stretches. Because it has lost elastin, it is unable to shrink, thus becoming loose and droopy.

Because of this problem, woman who have undergone many pregnancies may develop an oddly-shaped abdomen, and their stomach skin acquires a droopy look.

Usually exercise is recommended to tone the abdominal muscles, but effective exercises are extremely hard to perform and do not work for everybody. Moreover, the exercises do not have any effect on the stretched skin. This is why cosmetic surgery like a tummy tuck is considered to be an effective option. And it is safe, too!

At Dr. York Yates Plastic Surgery, we perform tummy tuck procedures with extreme finesse and precision. We make sure that you do not feel any kind of pain during the operation. We offer this surgery as an outpatient procedure, allowing you to be in and out of the clinic on the same day.

A tummy tuck procedure has a down time of about six weeks to allow for recovery. You will be asked to wear a special garment to support the muscles during this time. The results of the procedure can be noticed immediately and will last for a long time (unless you suddenly lose or gain weight).

Having an oddly-shaped abdomen can be very frustrating for any woman, as it limits her daily activities and fashion choices. If you have experienced multiple pregnancies and want to get your abdominal muscles back in shape, having a tummy tuck surgery at our clinic might be your best available option.
