Southlake Plastic Surgery helps women get their body back after baby. While giving birth is a wonderful experience, it also takes its toll on a woman’s body. It’s common for women to gain 20 to 35 pounds while pregnant, and this weight is stored as fat in the abdomen, thighs, hips, and breasts. Breasts will also enlarge in preparation for nursing. During pregnancy, sometimes there is a weakening of the muscles in the abdominal wall, and stretching of the skin as the baby develops. This stretching can cause stretch marks, which are a breaking of the skin’s collagen fibers. Mommy makeover plastic surgery addresses these issues by using procedures which tighten the tummy, including tummy tucks and liposuction.
