Plastic surgery after pregnancy - tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)

The abdomen is one of the body part that undergoes major changes following pregnancy, both in terms of musculature and skin. These changes are caused by the increase of uterus that expands the abdomen causing the stretching of the abdominal muscles and the hormones produced during pregnancy and which favor the relaxation of the muscular wall. After delivery, the belly skin could result saggy with deep stretch marks, this is called diastasis recti and causes a discomfort even of a psychological nature.

Abdominoplasty (or tummy tuck) is a plastic surgery aimed to solve this problem, removing abdominal fat, excess skin and stretch marks, with consequent firming of the entire abdominal wall. It is performed under anesthesia and have not only aesthetic and psychological benefits but also reduces the problems related to the dilated abdomen such as back pain and nausea.
