Question from Texas, TX: After 3 kids, my stomach is not the same. When I am standing it looks relatively flat (protrudes a bit) but when I sit, I always have this extra skin that hangs. I am fairly fit and trim but it is always there. I am not sure a TT will improve the appearance of my stomach enough to make surgery worth it. Thank you for your input.Answer from Dr. Dean Kane, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon from Baltimore: You look wonderful and appear to have retained much of your pre-mommy contour but unfortunately, those “little kids” have stretched your tissues. These include:
- stretching the outer skin which folds over your bikini when you sit
- some thickening of the fat
- stretching of the inner girdle which keeps you from maintaining a flat, tight tummy.
