Southlake Plastic Surgery helps women get their body back post-pregnancy. Although childbirth is a joyous experience, it can take its toll on your body. It’s not uncommon for women to gain 30 to 40 pounds during pregnancy, and this weight accumulates in the abdomen, breasts, thighs, and hips. The breasts will also get bigger to prepare for nursing. During pregnancy, sometimes weakness develops in the muscles in the abdomen, 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 treatments which tighten the tummy, including liposuction and tummy tucks.
