When you want to improve the look of your belly, but diet and exercise isn’t enough.
As you grow older, the muscles in your abdomen become weaker and start to sag. This can cause a noticeable abdominal bulge. On top of that, the elasticity of your skin declines, leading to sagging of the overlying skin. Pockets of excess stubborn fat can also form in the abdominal region.
With pregnancy, expansion of your abdomen over 9 months causes the muscles of the abdominal wall to separate and become weak. Your skin stretches and expands rapidly as well, and after childbirth, it often cannot shrink back down to how it was prior to pregnancy. Fast skin stretching due to pregnancy can also cause stretch marks.
Sagging abdominal skin, excess fat, drooping muscles, and stretch marks can often have a negative impact on your self-confidence. It can be difficult to hide these issues in form-fitting clothing, at the gym, or in swimwear at the beach or pool. Fortunately, abdominoplasty can help.
