Post Pregnancy Tummy Tuck

15 Oct



While pregnancy is a great joy it can also take a huge toll on the female body.   After having their children, many women consider a tummy tuck to address the resulting excess skin and fat.  However, other potential symptoms that women experience following pregnancy may be improved, such as:  


* urinary incontinence

* pelvic girdle pain

* low back pain

* separation of the abdominal muscles



As indicated in the above infographic a tummy tuck after pregnancy may also be beneficial in the following ways:


* to act as a spine stabiliser 

* to increase core strength

* to tighten the abdominal muscles to improve movement (biomechanics)

* to improve lower back pain or bulging discs by improving the stabiility of the sacroiliac joint

* to improve body contour
