First off, you look terrific. I don't really see the loose skin, but if it below your belly button, you can get a mini-tummy tuck that would be perfect for scenarios such as yours. It's not a high, red scar. It's a low scar (much like a C-section) and with proper care afterwards, will be un-noticeable. We have a very fit population in Charlotte and I see patients every day with your same concerns- this surgery does wonders. I've never told a patient they would do better if they were heavier- that just sounds weird. Hope this helps.
Thank you for your question and picture. You actually look great. But if there is some loose lower abdominal skin, then a mini tummy tuck with a low scar would likely give you the results that you are looking for. Be sure to see a Board Certified PS for your consultation.
Thank you for your question.
From this photo it doesn't appear as though you need an #abdominoplasty. However if you are uncomfortable with any post-pregnancy loose skin, you may be a candidate for a #miniTummyTuck which will leave a short #scar close to the pubic hair line.
Book an in-person consultation with a #boardcertified #plasticsurgeon for more information.
You could undergo a tummy tuck, but you need to decide if the benefit of a tighter abdominal wall outweighs the drawback of a horizontal scar. The scar can be placed low on your torso so it is not visible in clothing. Best wishes, Dr. T.
If you have loose skin in the lower abdomen only, simply excising the excess with a very low scar will improve that. It will not affect the area at or above the belly-button.
