Dear Dr. Pataki,
When I gave birth to my baby I was 80 kg and beforehand I was only 47kg. Currently, I am 54 kg and my height is 159 cm. My skin has become very loose on my abdomen and I might have hernia. I am not sure if there is a way of surgical correction?. Would my skin become like it used to be? Could the loose skin and fat be removed? I have a little abdominal apron, I had a Caesarian section. Currently I look like I was 5 months pregnant. I gave birth to my baby a year ago and I discussed my abdomen with my doctor on the 6-week check up and he said that my tummy was big because it was filled with air. Unfortunately, my breasts have changed a great deal after my pregnancy; they feel like empty bags now.
With many thanks,
Based on the above I think an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and breast correction (breast lift with possible augmentation) couldbe the solution. We should also exclude a hernia in your case.
If you are interested, you will find information on these procedures on my website or you could search the internet for the word „mommy makeover” or similar topics.
I would be happy to give you further advice personally.
