Southlake Plastic Surgery helps women get their body back post-pregnancy. While giving birth is a wonderful thing, it can take its toll on your body. It’s common for women to gain 25 to 40 pounds during pregnancy, and most of this weight is stored as fat in the abdomen, breasts, thighs, and hips. Breasts will also get bigger to prepare for nursing. During pregnancy, often there is a weakening of 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 tummy tucks and liposuction.
