Will Slim Lipo Help with Excess Skin After Pregnancy?

Twins caused excess skin. Would Slimlipo be a good alternative to a tuck?

SlimLipo can tighten moderate abdominal skin excess and fat after pregnancy

I have had excellent results using SlimLipo to remove fat and tighten abdominal skin in otherwise fit individuals who have laxity after childbirth.

If you have muscle laxity or split muscles caused by pregnancy, then an abdominoplasty will be required.

You can see results by checking my photo section for slimlipo of abdomen.

Slim Lipo offers some skin tightening benefits

+1

Slim lipo offers some good results for skin tightening. However, if you have marked skin relaxation and loss of elasticity and many stretch marks, it will probably only be moderately successful and you might be best served by a tummy tuck which will eliminate all of the old stretched out skin. Your plastic surgeon is your best bet for determining what procedure(s) would work best for you, as he or she can discuss with you the pros and cons of each procedure as well as your personal expectations and goals.

SlimLipo tightens skin

+1

We have had excellent results in skin tightening with the SlimLipo machine. It will not result in a flat tight abdomen like an abdominoplasty will. If you have had a twin pregnancy, you may need muscle tightening and this cannot be accomplished with SlimLipo alone.
