I have an apron... the fold of skin that goes down over the "section scar" line. I've always wondered what's going to happen to it when I convince my body to eat away the fat inside the area.


I've been losing density in the area as the weight's been falling off... DH asked me last night if he should get a 2nd job because I'm going to ask to have it removed if it doesn't go away last night.. and it got me thinking...

What usually happens to it for the average woman? Anyone know?

I was overweight by 100+ for most my life so my "apron" was decent size. When i lost the weight the apron became flat and I would tuck it into my pants basically. Drive me nuts and then when I start long distance running I started getting rashes. I finally caved and got a tummy tuck. such a hard hard surgery for me!
Anyway, I think it depends on the person. For me there was never a chance. I always had a slight one even as a teen and it only got worse with pgy and and then weight loss.

I've pretty much resigned myself to having it forever. I don't think it'll fully go away after having it for over a decade and being pregnant while so big. Surgery is to scary and not worth it to me personally.

I think if it deflated down most of the way I could deal with keeping it.... but I think if it retained a good bit of the flab while the rest of me shrunk away I'd have to get it removed or I'd go insane.

My mom's mostly disappeared. She has the "flubby mummy tummy" as she calls it... where it's all loose skin from having kids (3 of em, and her abdominal wall never recovered).... but after she lost 40lbs it stopped being as prevalent.

Yeah I still have a good bit of one but it is WAY smaller than it was 70lbs ago. I'm running out of other places to lose from so it's gotta shrink some more in the next 20 or so lbs I'm hoping lol.

Its a good sign that your mom's is disappearing. Genetics play a roll in your skin's elasticity as well as age, how long its been stretched out, and stuff like that.

I hope you get your mom's genetics!

A good friend of mine recently had surgery for it...her's was pretty bad though, 3 sections, another abdominal surgery, and she's lost a LOT of weight. She looks amazing, her scar is fantastic, they fixed her belly button. She's only 3 weeks post-op and we went for a walk with the kiddos yesterday. So she bounced back pretty quickly (but with 3 kids she kinda had to!)

I have a small one from my c-section. It was shrinking, and I just pulled my undies up over it

Mine's been getting worse the last year...I'm still holding out hope that "diet" and exercise will help my body want to burn most of my fat off eventually. I'm not in a huge rush on it... I figure it'll be the last bit to go.

I have this too and I thought it was never going to get better but it did eventually. My stomach still sags some but only when I lean over. When I'm standing up you really can't notice the little hangover. It used to drive me bananas and I honestly thought it would never go away. Just keep working on it. It gets better.
