& thank you for what you do.
is my question:
2 C-sections, one in 1988 & one in 1996.
surgeries were bikini cuts.
that has been awhile ago.
working out 5 days a week and I can't seem to get the area from my
belly button down to tighten up.
get above the belly button to tighten up just fine.
that some nerves could have been damaged but they are supposed to
heal in time.
have any strange numbness other than around the incision which is
just trying to tighten the stomach area up, as most woman want to
do, but it doesn't seem to be possible in that specific area.
the nerves have been so damaged that they don't work anymore?
that is my question.
you can just help to put some perspective in why my tummy won't stay
to read your answer
individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop
an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common
causes of this include:
-Significant fluctuations in weight
difficult to tighten the stomach because the body fat level required
to get flat abs is lower than you can sustain with your current lifestyle/schedule,
or the body fat level required is lower than is healthy for your body
have localized fat around your belly button, your stomach can be made
flatter with simple, scarless liposuction.
have relatively little excess skin but it does appear that you have
some muscle laxity may be useful skin tightening techniques.
of various skin tightening techniques have included Velasmooth, Alma
Accent, Titan, and Thermage.
want to look into one of these modalities to tighten the skin but
it is not likely you will see any significant improvement.
repair can be done via limited incisions but should not be performed
if you are considering having more children.
core strengthening using a Pilates style regimen may be useful.
