Should Stomach Muscles Always Be Tightened During a Tummy Tuck?
I'm scheduled for a full TT with some lipo and BA. I've had 4 pregnancies but my stomach muscles have not separated, only a fingertip space between them when flexed below and above the belly button. I'm 5'3", 125#, 39 yrs, exercise and workout core regularly. I have loose, stretch marked skin and poochy stomach fat I can't get rid of. My surgeon says I won't need a repair. But should I ask for them to be tightened anyway to get the best results from the TT? Or would it not make any difference?
