After pregnancy or significant weight loss it is quite common for there to be excess skin in the lower abdomen and muscle separation also called diastasis recti or rectus divarication. If the muscle separation persists it can cause a ‘pot belly’ appearance which can look as if you are still pregnant. Lower back pain and lack of core strength are commonly associated with this.  Abdominoplasty surgery is used to remove the excess skin, repair the abdominal muscles and restore the normal anatomy of the abdominal wall. Carefully planned surgery can dramatically improve core strength and cosmetic appearance in a single operation.

Thank you Mr Floyd for fixing me and all the other mothers like me so that we can feel normal again, bounce on trampolines with our children and chase around after them. You didn’t just fix my body but you fixed my mind too. You changed my life and I wont forget it.
