Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a great way to achieve a more toned, flat stomach. But there are several factors which must be considered before deciding whether it is the right time to move forward with your procedure. One of the most important is future pregnancy plans.
It is important to discuss any plans to have additional children with Dr. Crispin during your initial abdominoplasty consultation at our Atlanta plastic surgery office. These plans will have a significant impact on your results, and Dr. Crispin must be made aware of them in order to determine whether you are a good candidate for abdominoplasty.
While your abdominoplasty will not prevent you from having children again, future pregnancies can negatively impact your results by stretching your abdominal muscles and skin in the region. In order to restore your initial outcome, you would have to undergo another tummy tuck after your pregnancy. For this reason, Dr. Crispin recommends that you wait until you are finished having children to move forward with your abdominoplasty.
To find out whether you are a good candidate for abdominoplasty, please contact Crispin Plastic Surgery today to schedule your initial consultation. Dr. Mark Crispin serves patients in Atlanta and Marietta, Georgia.
