After pregnancy - Excess skin?

Hi everyone! I'm new to Sphynx Lair.

I've had my beautiful little girl Lola since May 13, she's 1 year 4 months. Although I have no plans to breed her anytime soon - I do plan to do so in the future. I'm just curious as to what happens to the excess skin after pregnancy? I've seen a few kitten bumps on sphynxes in my time and they're huge! :) I'm just wondering how long it takes / if the skin ever goes back to normal 'tight' looking skin after having kittens?
Thank you! :)

Welcome to sphynxlair good to have you. Pretty little lady you have.
I can't help you but there are member's here that can.
But, you know Sphynx has a saggy belly anyway.

Welcome to the Lair! If you can find the cure for extra skin let me know..... My Violet has lost about 5lbs (she was rehomed to me last year) and is now a healthy weight but she has tons of extra skin.

Good luck post pics of the baby!

Thank you for the welcome! Ah yes I realise that as she gets older she will get a jiggly pot belly! :) I was just wondering if getting her pregnant would add to the jiggle or if it would go back? Not that it matters, she'll always be my lively little sausage haha, I'm just curious!

Hello and thank you! :) Yes I do realise she'll get a bigger tummy the older she gets :)

Athena has had a few litters years ago, she does have extra skin, but she is a thin sphynx. I would imagine as with a human, if she eats a healthy diet and exercises, playing, running etc. and kept a good weight, there would be less of a chance of saggy skin in the belly area.

Welcome by the way! :)

My 11 monther has massive saggy skin where she got desexed! It's like a big blob with jiggly fat in it. LOL
