Hello all. I have loose skin and an X shape stretch mark above my belly button. I am 5'3 and 107 pounds and in great shape. The mark appeared after I had my son almost 3 years ago. I have seen some doctors and they have sent me away saying they don't recommend a tummy tuck for me because I really didnt need it. After seeing the scars online I agree. I have searched and do not know what else to do. Anything (besides a tummy tuck) sound great, even if it would some a slight difference.
Stretch Mark and Lose Skin Above Belly Button After Child, What To Do?
Doctor Answers (2)
Loose skin above belly button hard to correct when it is the only problem.
1) You have a common situation without a great solution, unfortunately. A tummy tuck is a lot of surgery with a significant scar.
2) A "reverse tummy tuck" with scars under the breasts is seldom a good idea.
3) We became disillusioned with the limited results of Thermage.
Need a photo
Without a photo and an examination it is hard to say what can work. Usually tummy tucks are the cure for stretch marks and other problems from pregnancy.
