How to get rid of twin skin?
Twin skin refers to the appearance of your belly after you have given birth to twins. Compared to a single pregnancy, a twin pregnancy leads to even more stretching of the abdomen. Afterwards, new mothers will diet and exercise to reduce the stomach fat, but are left with a lot of excess skin and stretch marks. The excess skin is present below the belly button and is sometimes described as crinkly, wrinkly, saggy, and droopy—this is twin skin.
A small percentage of (lucky) women with multiple gestations will have a satisfactory postpartum belly. Unfortunately, a high percentage of women that give birth to twins are plagued by twin skin. Even women that were very thin before pregnancy and lose all of the pregnancy weight, will still have extra skin. This can be an embarrassing situation because of the difficulty in finding clothes to hide the problem.
A tummy tuck is the only way to get rid of the unsightly twin skin that is present after a twin pregnancy. During a tummy tuck an incision is placed low on the bikini line and all of the skin from here to the belly button is removed. The belly button is left in place and brought up through the skin at a higher position. The abdominal muscles must be tightened, especially after a twin pregnancy, as these muscles will be very stretched out. Repairing the muscles is important to create the flat stomach contour and improve core strength.
