Southlake Plastic Surgery helps women get their body back after baby. Although giving birth is a joyous 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 most of this weight is stored as fat in the abdomen, hips, thighs, and breasts. The breasts will also enlarge 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 causes stretch marks, which are a breaking of the skin’s collagen fibers. Mommy makeover plastic surgery addresses these issues by using procedures which make the tummy tighter, including tummy tucks and liposuction.
