Why is plastic surgery for moms so popular these days? Simple: it works! A tummy tuck is often the only way to repair stretched out skin and muscles caused be pregnancy. It’s so effective that we find many of my tummy tuck patients can’t wait to show off their new flat stomach!
How do you approach swimsuit season each year? Do you get excited? Scared? Whether you’re self-conscious or looking forward to flaunting your new tummy tuck, finding the right swimsuit to show off your best assets can be difficult.

Choose a Style that Hides the Scar
Remember, it will take a while for your tummy tuck scar to fade. Until that time, you may feel more comfortable wearing a more covered-up style. No surgeon can perform the surgery without scarring, but an experienced cosmetic surgeon can make the appearance of the scar as clean and precise as possible.
Small bikinis may be cut too low to cover the tummy tuck scar. Tankinis, high-waisted bikinis, and one-pieces with dramatic cutouts are sexy, yet stay in place and cover up scarring.
Don’t have the bikini belly just yet? If you have stretched out skin and muscles in the abdominal region, you might consider a tummy tuck. Diet and exercise sometimes can’t repair all the damage caused by pregnancy.
