Southlake Plastic Surgery helps mothers get their body back after baby. While childbirth is a joyous thing, it can take a toll on your body. It’s common for women to gain 30 to 40 pounds during pregnancy, and most of this weight accumulates in the abdomen, breasts, hips, and thighs. Breasts will also get bigger in preparation for lactation. During pregnancy, often weakness develops in the muscles in the abdominal wall, and stretching of the skin as the baby develops. This stretching causes stretch marks, which are a breaking of the skin’s collagen fibers. Mommy makeover plastic surgery addresses these cosmetic issues by using treatments which make the tummy tighter, including tummy tucks and liposuction.
