Tummy tucks are indicated for patients who have loose, hanging skin of the abdomen. This is usually due to pregnancy, but it can also occur after major weight loss. Pregnancy or major weight gain will stretch the abdominal skin. This may result in stretch marks, and the elasticity of skin may be lost, resulting in hanging skin. Pregnancy can also weaken the strong fascia (white fibers) between the abdominal muscles (the six pack muscles), resulting in the abdominal contents pushing against the weak fascia. The medical term for this condition is rectus diastasis. This will result in a “beer belly” appearance.
