Southlake Plastic Surgery helps mothers get their body back post-pregnancy. While giving birth is a wonderful experience, it also takes its toll on your body. It’s common for women to gain 20 to 35 pounds during pregnancy, and this weight accumulates in the abdomen, thighs, hips, and breasts. The breasts will also enlarge to prepare for nursing. During pregnancy, often weakness develops in the muscles in the abdominal wall, and some stretching of the skin as the baby develops. This stretching can cause stretch marks, which are a breakage of the skin’s collagen fibers. Mommy makeover plastic surgery addresses these issues by using procedures which tighten the tummy, including liposuction and tummy tucks.
