Loose Skin After Pregnancy Treatment in Albury-Wodonga

Pregnancy brings about numerous changes in a woman’s body, including significant alterations to the skin’s structure and elasticity.

Understanding surgical and non-surgical treatment options for loose skin after pregnancy is important, and our plastic surgeon-led cosmetic clinic in Albury-Wodonga is here to help mothers regain confidence and embrace their bodies after giving birth.

What Treatment for Loose Skin After Pregnancy Involves

Loose skin after pregnancy can be addressed through various treatment approaches, including:

Non-Surgical Methods to Reduce Loose Skin & Effects of Weight Gain:

  • Radiofrequency Skin Tightening: Body contouring treatments help to stimulate collagen production and tightens skin without surgery. This includes the innovative Morpheus 8 and BodyTite procedures, which offer non-surgical precision skin tightening, improvements in skin firmness and contouring.
  • Ultrasound Therapy: Promotes collagen synthesis for firmer, smoother skin texture, to improve skin elasticity and help improve appearance of weight loss.

Surgical Solutions to Reduce Loose Skin & Effects of Weight Gain:

  • Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): Removes excess skin and tightens the upper and lower abdominal muscles; and repair pregnancy-related abdominal separation (diastasis recti) for a flatter, more toned appearance. This can be done via a traditional approach or using the TULUA (transverse plication, no undermining, full liposuction, neoumbilicoplasty, and low transverse abdominal scar) modified technique.
  • Mini Tummy Tuck: Targets lower abdominal skin laxity with a less invasive approach.

  • Experience significant skin laxity post-pregnancy
  • Have fully recovered from pregnancy, as well as stabilised their weight and health

The Treatment Process


Schedule a consultation with a qualified and experienced team to discuss your concerns, medical history, and aesthetic goals. We will assess your candidacy for various treatment options and develop a personalised plan.


Depending on your needs and goals, you may undergo non-surgical treatments such as radiofrequency or ultrasound therapy, or surgical procedures like a tummy tuck for loose belly skin. Your provider will guide you through the treatment process, addressing any questions or concerns you may have about treatments that tighten skin.


The recovery process and time varies depending on the chosen treatment to tighten loose skin or remove excess skin. Procedures like a tummy tuck surgery may require several weeks of downtime (up to 6 weeks if the underlying abdominal muscle has been tightened or repaired), while non-surgical treatments like Morpheus8 and BodyTite radiofrequency treatments typically have minimal downtime. Follow your provider’s post-procedure instructions for optimal healing and results.


With time and proper adherence to post-treatment care instructions, you’ll begin to notice improvements in skin tightness, body contour and texture. Results from non-surgical treatments may become apparent gradually, while surgical interventions usually offer more immediate changes and more dramatic results.

Cost of Treatment for Loose Skin After Pregnancy

The cost of post-pregnancy tightening for loose skin varies depending on factors such as the chosen procedure, provider expertise, geographic location, and any additional fees. Surgical procedures to remove excess skin like a tummy tuck typically are more expensive but can lead to more dramatic results, while non-surgical options like Morpheus8 and BodyTite offer effective results and are more budget-friendly. Discuss pricing and financing options with your provider during the consultation.

Don’t let loose skin dampen your post-pregnancy glow. Explore effective treatment options to tighten loose skin, support collagen production, restore skin elasticity, and get closer to your pre pregnancy weight and shape with confidence.

If you still have some questions below you can find our most frequently asked questions about our Enlarged Pores Treatment in West Albury:

Yes, when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, surgical removal of loose skin and excess fat after pregnancy is generally considered safe.

The best non-surgical alternatives for pregnancy skin tightening include BodyTite and Morpheus8. BodyTite utilises radiofrequency energy for internal tissue remodelling and skin tightening, while Morpheus 8 combines microneedling with radiofrequency to improve skin elasticity and firmness, offering effective solutions without surgery.

Recovery times vary, but most women can expect 2-3 weeks of downtime following mummy tummy surgery (and longer if the underlying muscle has been tightened or repaired). It’s essential to follow postoperative instructions provided by your surgeon for optimal healing.

Yes, surgical procedures will leave scars, typically located along the lower abdomen or bikini line. However, these scars often fade over time and can be concealed with clothing.

Ideal candidates for skin tightening treatments or skin removal surgery are women who have excess skin or excess weight as well as laxity (sagging) in the abdominal area post-pregnancy, have stabilised their weight, are in good overall health, and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure or medical treatments.

The results of surgery for loose skin removal and tightening loose skin, such as a full tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck surgery, can be long-lasting, provided a stable weight is maintained and a healthy lifestyle is followed. While the ageing process may affect skin elasticity over time, significant improvements can be maintained with a healthy diet and exercise to help you keep a more toned tummy.

No, it’s generally recommended to wait at least 6-12 months after giving birth before considering a tummy tuck or any treatment to tighten loose skin. This allows your body and abdominal muscles time to heal, stabilise your weight, and for hormonal fluctuations to settle.

Risks include infection, bleeding, scarring, and adverse reactions to anaesthesia. Additionally, complications such as poor wound healing, seroma collection (accumulation of straw-coloured fluid) or changes in sensation may occur, although these are rare when the procedure is performed by a skilled plastic surgeon.

When you want to tighten loose skin, be sure to find a surgeon like Dr. Queenie Chan who has relevant qualifications (Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons FRACS qualified), and are specialist plastic surgeons.
