Post Pregnancy Body Sculpting

Pregnancy significantly changes the external and internal anatomy of a woman’s body. These changes not only involve the visible anatomy, i.e., stretching the abdominal skin, the umbilicus, fibrous ligaments, etc, but it also causes scarring under the abdomen and separation of the abdominal muscles.

Post pregnancy rejuvenation addresses the external and internal changes that have occurred by repairing the abdomen leaving you with a flat and more sculpted stomach through either a mini-tummy tuck or a full abdominoplasty.

Fat-removal procedures such as liposuction can be used in conjunction with full or mini abdominoplasty procedures to further contour the area.

Mini and Full Tummy Tucks

A mini tummy tuck is an abdominal procedure that removes excess sagging skin of the lower stomach. Once the excess skin has been removed, the lower abdomen and love handle areas can be reshaped and contoured to flatten your stomach and restore your old waistline. Split rectus muscles (diastasis rectii) can also be repaired via a mini tummy tuck incision.

While the belly button is not changed during a mini-tummy tuck and a shorter scar is created than through a full abdominoplasty procedure, the "mini" tuck is still a surgical procedure and requires post operative care.

If you require more extensive correction, a full abdominoplasty may be the best procedure for you. For a full abdominoplasty, Dr. Lesesne will make a low incision your abdomen from hipbone to hipbone. The incision is made along the pubic area and can be easily concealed. Once the incision is made, he can manipulate and contour the skin, tissue, and muscle as needed.

The down time for a full abdominoplasty is 10-14 days.
