Pregnancy is notorious for causing major changes in a woman’s body. For this reason, it tends to be the most common reason for women to request the tummy tightening procedure known as a tummy tuck. Gaining such a large amount of weight so quickly tends to stretch the skin and muscles of the midsection significantly.

Tummy tightening by plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory Park is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat around the lower half of the abdomen. In addition, the procedure can reattach and tighten the muscles that make up the abdominal wall. These muscles often separate and stretch during pregnancy and create undesirable belly bulge.

Dr. Park offers mini or full tummy tucks depending on the degree of correction required.
