Many women consider plastic surgery to counteract some of the physical changes that occur as a result of pregnancy. Alternately, some women may plan for plastic surgery but find they have to postpone it due to becoming pregnant. Either way, keeping yourself in good health and good shape throughout your pregnancy can make it significantly easier to recover from surgery afterwards.
How to Stay in Shape While Pregnant
Being pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t exercise, but there are some important tips to keep in mind. For example, although you can continue some of your favorite physical activities such as running, biking, and even aerobics, you need to be aware of your changing center of balance as the baby grows. In addition, with all exercise it’s important to stay very well hydrated, and to be careful not to over-heat or over-exert yourself.
If you want to be extra safe, certain types of activity are especially well suited to pregnant women. These include swimming and yoga, both of which are low-impact and can be very effective in keeping you fit and toned.
