TUMMY TUCK: A PATIENT’S EXPERIENCE

The decision to proceed with a tummy tuck often follows a period of exhilaration at starting a family followed by distress at the consequences of pregnancy on the appearance of the tummy. The effect of pregnancy on the skin, fat, and muscle of the abdomen varies from person to person. In some cases, the contour of the tummy can be restored with exercise and a healthy diet. In many cases, however, the effects of pregnancy on skin elasticity and muscle spreading away from its natural midline position, known as diastasis, will limit the benefits of even the most conscientious exercise and diet routine. Dr. Forley uses advanced techniques in tummy tuck surgery to make the desired goals of self improvement a reality for women who are unable to do so on their own due to the anatomic changes that have occurred following childbirth.

In the following video, a mother of two shares her thoughts on deciding to have a tummy tuck and how she feels about the results.
