Southlake Plastic Surgery helps women get their body back post-pregnancy. Although childbirth is a joyous experience, it also takes its toll on a woman’s body. It’s not uncommon for women to gain 20 to 35 pounds during pregnancy, and this weight is stored as fat in the abdomen, breasts, thighs, and hips. Breasts will also get bigger in preparation for nursing. During pregnancy, often there is a weakening of 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 deals with these issues by using procedures which tighten the tummy, including tummy tucks and liposuction.
