Abbey Clancy has undergone a £380 skin tightening treatment on her washboard abs after claiming having four children ‘overstretched’ her stomach.
The model, 35, said she ‘really needed’ the bespoke procedure because it’s ‘something the gym can’t do’ and while she doesn’t have ‘a lot of fat there’ she still needs ‘help’ tackling the problem.

Abbey said while having the treatment: ‘See, this is what I think I really need because you know I don’t feel like there’s a lot of fat there but having had four kids the skin is so overstretched, I just need a bit of help, something the gym can’t do.’
The clip was shared to the Instagram profile of celebrity skincare expert Shane Cooper, who explained the science behind Abbey’s procedure.
He said: ‘We’re doing tripollar radio frequency for the skin tightening, so it helps with produce collagen production and help with the skin elastin. This is absolutely perfect for the skin elastin, we treat so many clients postpartum.’
The video prompted interest from BAFTAs host Edith Bowman, 47, who commented: ‘This is what I’m talking about. Book me in ASAP.’

In order to maintain her model physique, Abbey regularly visits Shane, who’s previously treated the star’s face, neck and body.
And she’s not alone as a string of celebrities have visited Shane since beauty salons reopened on Monday, with TV presenter Maya Jama, 26, stopping by for a ‘collagen boasting and skin contouring’ facial this week.
Former Strictly winner Abbey gave birth to youngest son Jack in June 2019 and said months after welcoming her fourth baby that ‘genes’ played a huge part in her ability to ‘bounce back’ from pregnancy.
She explained: ‘Everyone in my family is slim and tall. My mother bounced back after kids, so I think my genes are a huge part of it.

‘I generally eat what I want to in moderation. I don’t really struggle with my weight too much, so I don’t have to be focused on what not to eat.
‘But I like to eat well because it gives me energy and I feel less tired – and it’s good for your skin and hair.’
In November 2019, four months after giving birth to Jack, Abbey explained she upped her ‘core’ exercises to improve her overall strength.
She said: ‘I’ve been doing more core work for fitness. After having my third baby, I did feel quite weak and tired. Doing your pelvic floor exercises and working on your core, you just feel stronger.

Abbey’s statuesque figure has garnered her a successful modelling career after she came runner-up of Britain’s Next Top Model in 2006 and later starred on the cover of Sports Illustrated, British Elle, Esquire and Marie-Claire, to name a few.
Her children are already following in her model footsteps after Sophia, Liberty and Johnny starred in their first F&F kidswear campaign for Tesco last month.
Proud mum Abbey said on Instagram: ‘My little baby models doing their thing.’
Abbey’s husband Peter has undergone surgery in the past but all on the back of injuries sustained playing football.
Following his nose job, Peter admitted: ‘My nose was a bit wonky at Liverpool and I had it put right after a knock – and my teeth weren’t ideal until I had them knocked out and repaired – so I’m slowly improving as I get older.’
