Southlake Plastic Surgery helps women get their body back post-pregnancy. While giving birth is a joyous experience, it also takes its toll on your body. It’s not uncommon for women to gain 20 to 35 pounds while pregnant, and this weight accumulates in the abdomen, breasts, thighs, and hips. The breasts will also get bigger in preparation for nursing. During pregnancy, often weakness develops in the muscles in the abdomen, and some stretching of the skin as the baby grows. 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 procedures which make the tummy tighter, including liposuction and tummy tucks.
