We feel for the diligent moms of today: you tend to your kids, kick butt at your job, and work out religiously to keep your body looking its best. Only problem? The effects of pregnancy can leave your body in disarray. Suddenly, the workout regimen you always had that produced a hard, flat tummy no longer does the job.
Rest assured knowing it’s not you. Many women return to their post-baby diet and exercise routines only to find them rendered ineffective in their stomach region. Thanks, pregnancy. Thanks, a lot.
Fortunately, there is something you can do to get your abs – and self-confidence – back on track. A tummy tuck can remove the layer of fat that builds up between the skin and abdominal muscles underneath. This procedure can bring these muscles back together while thinning out the fat resting against the abdominal wall.
Once this fat is removed, the underlying muscles can become more prominently displayed as they’re built up through targeted exercise and a proper diet. Now, we want to be clear – a tummy tuck will not give you six-pack abs. There is no shortcut to these kinds of amazing results. Instead, the procedure will allow your hard work to show through once you achieve a low level of body fat, a defined middle section, and a balanced diet.
A tummy tuck can undo the effects of pregnancy, age, and gravity to a certain extent. Those who enjoyed a flat stomach before baby can bask in this feature once again. The procedure can also introduce the possibility of further contouring through the hard work associated with six-pack abs.
