Southlake Plastic Surgery helps mothers get their body back after baby. Although childbirth is a joyous thing, it also takes its toll on your body. It’s not uncommon for women to gain 25 to 40 pounds during pregnancy, and most of this weight accumulates in the abdomen, breasts, hips, and thighs. The breasts will also enlarge in preparation for lactation. During pregnancy, sometimes there is a weakening of the muscles in the abdomen, and stretching of the skin as the baby develops. This stretching can cause stretch marks, which are a breaking of the skin’s collagen fibers. Mommy makeover plastic surgery deals with these issues by using treatments which make the tummy tighter, including tummy tucks and liposuction.
