Long term stretching of the muscles of the abdomen can be associated with age, obesity, and in women, pregnancy. This process is unfortunately often irreversible, and may not respond to any amount of body conditioning.

The problem is frequently compounded by skin laxity/excess, and localized fat deposits, both of which respond poorly to dieting and exercise.

The excess tissue can interfere with physical activity, make clothing fit difficult, and create hygiene problems.

Surgical tightening of the abdominal musculature and excision of the excess skin and fat, can restore a more youthful profile. The resultant scarring is usually well concealed, and the result durable.

Medically indicated cases are eligible for subsidy by Medicare and private health insurers.
