How to get rid of twin skin?

Dr Dass describes tummy tuck in los angeles
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.

Dr. Dass is an expert plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, and is skilled at performing the tummy tuck for twin skin. He will make sure that you get the best results and a flat stomach. A significant improvement will be realized immediately after surgery.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
