Lower abdominal skin that has been stretched by pregnancy or by significant weight loss will not tighten without surgical contouring, and abdominoplasty, known as ‘tummy tuck,’ is the definitive treatment for loose, hanging abdominal skin. With pregnancy, core abdominal muscles often are stretched (called ‘rectus diastasis’) and Dr. Rad often tightens these muscles concurrent with abdominoplasty. Abdominoplasty is ideal when the skin hangs as a result of being stretched by pregnancy or by Massive Weight Loss and there is minimal fatty tissue. In the presence of excess fatty tissue, Dr. Rad often combines Abdominopasty + Liposuction for a comprehensive result.
