Abdominal changes often occur after pregnancy, where the abdominal skin is stretched to the extent that elastic components in the skin are torn.
A remission through exercise and weight-training often yields only limited results, since the two parallel abdominal (rectus abdominis) muscles move apart during pregnancy.
Failure of partial or complete regression leads the waistline to distort your figure.
Excess skin on the thighs, revealed in excess fatty tissue and skin folds on the inner side are often cause for complaint, as is loose skin on the upper arms that has lost its elasticity and ability to recede.
Such changes are sometimes so pronounced that they may be mistaken as a symptom of a disease. This is especially true for chronic skin irritations, mobility disorders and abdominal wall hernias.
