When you are finished adding to your family, a tummy tuck can help you achieve the firmer, more youthful look that you had before your pregnancies. If you still plan on getting pregnant, especially within the next couple of years, then you probably want to wait until after you are done bearing children to undergo your tummy tuck procedure.
Talk with Dr. Roberta Gartside during your consultation in our Washington DC area offices about your family expanding plans to make sure you're having the right cosmetic surgery procedure at the right time.
A tummy tuck can remove the excess skin and fat that so often trouble women after going through one or multiple pregnancies. Because a full tummy tuck removes skin and tightens your abdominal muscles, it can be uncomfortable to have them stretched out again with another pregnancy. You may need an additional procedure if your stomach skin and muscles don't return to normal after your pregnancy.
And if you do wait until after you are sure that you have completed your family, you can take advantage of our mommy makeover to rejuvenate your whole body. During a mommy makeover you can have Dr. Gartside focus on the areas of your body affected most by pregnancy – your breasts and abdomen.
