Southlake Plastic Surgery helps women get their body back after baby. While childbirth is a joyous thing, it can take its toll on a woman’s body. It’s not uncommon for women to gain 20 to 35 pounds during pregnancy, and this weight accumulates in the abdomen, thighs, breasts, and hips. The breasts will also enlarge in preparation 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 causes 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 liposuction and tummy tucks.
