 Sometimes, no matter how much an Omaha man or woman exercises, he or she still has extra skin that hangs from his or her abdominal muscles. The reasons are varied. Some people have this excess skin because they recently lost a dramatic amount of weight and, despite their best exercise efforts, this skin just won’t “snap back” into place. Other times, local moms have this excess skin after having children. Some patients never had an issue with excess abdominal skin until they got older, and gravity started to take its toll.
