After the birth of my daughter I put on a lot of weight. I have since got back down to my pre-pregnancy size 12, but the skin on my stomach and thighs is horrid and saggy. I go to the gym every day, but it doesn't seem to be helping… will something like liposuction get me back, in shape?

Liposuction is the method used to remove unwanted fat stores, it will not rectify stretched skin. The body is an amazing machine, and although you cannot see it, your body is recovering. You are dong the right thing by exercising, to firm your muscle and with it your skin - you need to be patient. However, if you are seriously considering surgery, you should talk to your doctor. He will advise you on the procedure, and may be able to recommend a surgeon. Failing that, seek an appointment with a surgeon accredited to BAPS.
