Default Do I need a tummy tuck?

I am 25 years old and gave birth to one child, 4 years ago. My pre pregnancy weight was 105 and I gained 30 lbs during pregnancy. I quickly lost the weight, within about a couple weeks and went back down to 105 lbs. This has left my skin VERY saggy. I am not sure what to do about it. My muscles are strong, and I do not have any fat, but I have very loose skin that I am not happy about at all. My loose skin is around my belly button. Would a tummy tuck be ideal for me? If not, what else would work for me? A tummy tuck scares me very much but I am not aware of any other procedures that could remove or tighten the skin around my belly button. I attached three pictures to show what my stomach looks like, in hopes that someone can please give me some advice. I know my stomach isn't that bad, but it really bothers me a lot. When I sit down, it looks horrible. All the skin just gathers around my belly button.

If you are planning on having more children then I would say wait. Hay your tummy does not reeally look all that bad. If my tummy looked like yours I would sure not be thinking about a tummy tuck at all.

Yes it's better to wait. A mini tummy tuck should be enough in your case.

Hello!! WOW if I had your tummy I would be in pure heaven. If it really bothers you then go to the store and buy a tight girdle. There is also skin tighting lotions out there. Also if you are still wanting to have more children then by all means wait.

Your belly is a very nice profile line. Muscle fascia under the skin fold back to normal. Actually was a fold of skin around the navel. Probably as a result of rapid changes in weight during and after pregnancy. A small abdominal plasty napweno make Idel regain line. But if you plan to have another baby soon - we do not recommend. Abdominal surgery involves, inter alia, the excision of excess skin. You are slim and in subsequent pregnancy, after such an operation could stretch marks occur. When you have a family now complete and healthy, then the plastic surgeons to restore the splendor of your belly.

Your belly is not as bad as you described. I believe some skin tightening lotion and sit ups daily would help. Tummy tuck can be considered later when you decide your not having another baby.
