Southlake Plastic Surgery helps mothers get their body back post-pregnancy. While childbirth is a joyous experience, it also takes a toll on your body. It’s common for women to gain 30 to 40 pounds while pregnant, and most of this weight accumulates in the abdomen, thighs, breasts, and hips. The breasts will also enlarge in preparation for nursing. During pregnancy, often weakness develops in the muscles in the abdomen, and stretching of the skin as the baby grows. This stretching causes stretch marks, which are a breaking of the skin’s collagen fibers. Mommy makeover plastic surgery addresses these issues by using treatments which make the tummy tighter, including tummy tucks and liposuction.
