Mommy Makeovers: Getting Back Your Body After Baby!
- Posted on: Mar 29 2011
Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, but it causes major changes to a woman’s figure. New mothers often feel unlike themselves after they’ve given birth. This loss of personal identity occurs when they see the physical changes in the mirror, or notice differences in the way their clothes fit. Exercise can combat some of the physical changes that pregnancy causes and cosmetic surgery can address some of these specific concerns that many mothers have:
- Sagging or drooping breasts – hormonal changes and the development of fuller breasts during pregnancy can cause them to sag and appear deflated post-partum. These effects of pregnancy cannot be reversed with exercise, but cosmetic surgery can address these problem areas. A breast lift can alleviate the issue of drooping breasts, and an augmentation can reintroduce fullness.
- Loose skin and fat around the stomach – the stomach undergoes a number of changes during pregnancy, for obvious reasons. Exercise can help women strengthen their core muscles, but this doesn’t reduce the presence of loose or sagging skin or eliminate stubborn fat. A tummy tuck offers a solution by tightening and reshaping the abdominal area.
- Breasts that are larger than is desired – it is more common for women to experience a deflation in their breasts after pregnancy, but some are left with more fullness. Women that are uncomfortable with the size of their breasts can have a reduction.
New mothers already have a lot of changes to deal with. A woman that gets her figure back will have a renewed confidence to take on the world.
