Based on your description and picture, you seem to be a very good candidate for a lateral tension abdominoplasty tummy tuck procedure. After multiple pregnancies you'll likely need aggressive muscle plication to provide outstanding long-term results. Please do come in for a consultation to evaluate your options and discuss the procedure in detail.
Thank you for your picture. I would recommend a full tummy tuck with muscle repair. This will give you a much better abdominal contour.

You are a wonderful candidate for a Tummy Tuck and all of the saggy skin and stretch marks below your navel will be eliminated.
So your abdomen will become tight and flatter because you will need also a tight muscle repair. This will help also to create a tapered waist.
Be encouraged you will be loving your results. Be sure your doctor will take good care of you.
of course it’s impossible to say that you’ll benefit from a tummy tuck without
a full physical examination, your photo does show many issues that are typically
resolved with a tummy tuck, such as loose, excess skin. If you’re at a healthy
target weight and you know you’re done having kids, I would recommend
scheduling a few consultations to get a feel for what your options are. Be sure
you look for a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in tummy tucks
and/or body contouring for the best results.
Only 1 dilemma is why risk going to DR. Recent serious infections from cosmetic surgery done there. Be careful...
Thank you very much for uploading your
photograph. It does look as if you have a significant amount of stretch marks
on your tummy following the birth of your children and also possibly the tummy
muscles have been stretched.
I think you would be a good candidate for a
tummy tuck procedure which would essentially remove the majority of the tissue
between your tummy button and the area where your Caesarean scar would be if
you have one. This would be combined with a repair of
This could be performed as part of a tummy
tuck procedure and most plastic surgeons can perform this treatment.
It may be worthwhile scheduling a
consultation with a plastic surgeon in your area to discuss the best way
forward for you.
Thank you for the picture.
You make a great candidate for a tummy tuck, some liposuction in the waist and lower back will enhance your body shape as well as give you a flat stomach.
may be just the person the tummy tuck procedure was created for! It's
no wonder your abdomen is showing some wear and tear after six
pregnancies. It's likely a full tummy tuck, including muscle repair and
skin removal, will be a good strategy for you. You and your plastic
surgeon can also discuss whether a bit of targeted liposuction to blast
stubborn fat pockets would be a good addition.
at least two consultations with board certified plastic surgeons, and
be sure to bring up your fear of surgery. This is a topic we address
with our patients quite often. It could be that choosing twilight
sedation over general anesthesia might put you at ease.
tuck surgery, while not an "easy" procedure, is one that experienced
plastic surgeons will have performed hundreds of times. If you are in
good health, don't smoke and your weight is stable (or you're losing
weight), you have every chance of being very pleased with your results.

From your photos, you appear to be a great candidate for a tummy tuck. This will remove the excess skin and the stretch marks, and tighten the abdominal muscles that are certainly stretched and weakened after 6 pregnancies! Obviously, you would need to be seen in person so you can be examined and you can hear about your specific options. Make sure to research potential surgeons and even speak to past patients.
these pictures it looks like you only have enough skin laxity for a tummy
tuck. See a board certified plastic surgeon in your area with an expertise in
body contouring and tummy tucks for more individualized information. In my
practice in the San Francisco Bay Area I have come to the conclusion that the
happiest patients are those that have realistic expectation on what a procedure
will and won’t do for them. Dean Vistnes.
