Southlake Plastic Surgery helps women rejuvenate their figures post-pregnancy. Although giving birth is a wonderful thing, it can take a toll on a woman’s body. It’s not uncommon for women to gain 20 to 35 pounds while pregnant, and most of this weight is stored as fat in the abdomen, thighs, breasts, and hips. Breasts will also enlarge to prepare for nursing. During pregnancy, sometimes there is a weakening of the muscles in the abdomen, and some stretching of the skin as the baby grows. This stretching causes 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.
