Her pregnancy left her with a severe muscle separation to a point that her abdominal wall had no support and the intra-abdominal contents were almost falling out. People used to ask her how many months pregnant she was! The tummy tuck tightened the skin and more importantly tightened the abdominal muscles to repair the abdominal wall. This helped to contain the intra-abdominal contents and take away the pregnant look.
