Having multiple children at once means more fun… and more work. It also often means more damage to the stomach caused by pregnancy.
Twins, triplets, and more cause the skin, belly and muscles to stretch and separate, creating a loose, saggy, and lumpy appearance to the abdomen.
Many people don’t understand how this affects a woman, and can’t understand why plastic surgery for moms can be a great idea.
They might label it as “baby weight” that can simply be resolved through time, exercise, and diet. Unfortunately, this is not the case, particularly with multiples.
Tummy Tuck After Twins, Triplets, or Even More!
During pregnancy, a woman not only gains weight, her skin and muscles can stretch to the point that they cannot be resolved without a tummy tuck. No exercises can tighten the stomach muscles that have separated from each other; they must be tightened surgically. A tummy tuck can be beneficial for moms who are unhappy with their post-twins body.
Tummy Tucks in Hollywood
Many women exposed to the media for having extreme multiple births have received tummy tucks. Kate Gosselin, reality TV star and mother to twins and sextuplets, received a free tummy tuck after the birth of her sextuplets. The surgery was filmed, and there’s no question that she looks great after the procedure.
Kate tweeted to fans: ” …it’ll be the BEST decision you’ve ever made!” Before the operation, Kate’s stomach was extremely stretched and saggy, but now she has an enviable bikini body.
“Octomom” Nadya Suleman, who gave birth to octuplets in 2009, has never admitted to having a tummy tuck, but speculation is that there is no way her stomach could have rebounded so well without the help of a plastic surgeon.
