Saggy Belly Skin/pannus, Hoping for More Children

I know babies will re-loosen skin. I've had an apron since after a c/s with baby #1. Serious loose skin and worst stretch marks came after baby 2: started obese (less than with baby 1), gained 60, lost 50, regained 30. Now have about 50 lbs. to an ideal weight, have lost about 4 lbs/mo. Want to look better, not just saggier, with fat loss, & take better care of self & skin though I accept babies will change me again. Have VBACs, so apron less likely. Recommendations after I reach ideal weight?

Tummy tuck prior to subsequent pregnancies or children

IT is best to wait until completion of childbearing prior to having a tummy tuck especially in the near future. You must understand that If you have a body contouring procedure now, it may have to be repeated after subequent children.

Tummy tuck and pregnancy

If you are thinking of having more kids, you shoudl probably wait until after that time to have a tummy tuck. The abdomen will stretch out again with pregnancy.
