Southlake Plastic Surgery helps mothers get their body back post-pregnancy. While giving birth is a joyous experience, it also takes its toll on your body. It’s common for women to gain 20 to 35 pounds while pregnant, and this weight accumulates in the abdomen, hips, breasts, and thighs. Breasts will also enlarge in preparation for nursing. 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 tighten the tummy, including tummy tucks and liposuction.
