Pregnancy Has Made My Belly Very Round Post-Pregnancy, Exercise Is Not Helping. Can A Tummy Tuck Fix

Updated: May 11, 2023

A tummy tuck after pregnancy is designed to undo all the changes that occur during pregnancy. As your child grows the two muscles in your belly stretch out and separate and your skin becomes loose without an ability to naturally shrink down to its original state. Tummy tuck surgery can correct this.

Do I Have To Get My Muscles Sutured Back Together To Flatten My Belly?

Your belly is protruding because your abdominal muscles have separated and stretched out during your pregnancy. Diet and exercise alone cannot bring your abdominal muscles back together. For optimal tummy tuck results Dr. Brooks will repair your abdominal muscles with sutures and your abdominal muscles will be pulled back together to achieve a tight, flat and contoured midsection.

How Long Do I Have To Wait After Having My Child Before I Can Get A Tummy Tuck?

It’s best to wait at least 6 months after having your child before we schedule your tummy tuck surgery.

Where Will My Tummy Tuck Surgery Take Place?

Your tummy tuck surgery will take place at Dr. Brooks’ surgery centre that is located in the Mohawk Medical Arts Centre in Medicine Hat, Alberta.

If you have any further questions about scheduling your tummy tuck surgery, we are more than happy to help. Give us a call at 403.487.0460, we’re looking forward to hearing from you!
