Being mum is definitively the utmost feeling in the whole world. You stop being the centre of your own world and all attention is at once directed to that tiny, precious and fragile being who has been growing in you for the last nine months. Precisely these nine months have made their marks on woman’s body many of which can be depressing after childbirth.
Is it possible to have the perfect body after childbirth?
Stretched skin on the belly, breasts, thighs or other body parts during pregnancy may result in loose skin, stretch marks, and fat tissue build-up (orange skin) in certain areas. However, nothing can beat a strong will and healthy, well-balanced nutrition (since breastfeeding doesn’t allow you to eat quite everything) and a little bit of time for the workout can do miracles for your body after childbirth. But, you must know that sometimes that is not enough, like in the case of the excess, sagging skin which is a result of great weight gain in pregnancy. This excess skin can be tightened only with the help of plastic surgery and it is not that rare either and even has its term – mommy makeover. This invasive treatment is something to resort to only when all other resources, i. e. healthy diet and workout, cannot yield the results woman expects, because as it is a well-known fact, every surgery has its risks.
Pregnancy, as well as breastfeeding, leave consequences on a woman’s body, probably more than any woman wants to admit. Your breasts enlarge during pregnancy and most women enjoy the way they look at the time, but once breasts start “fulfilling their purpose”, it’s whole another story. Stretch marks, sagged skin caused by the loss of skin elasticity – all that becomes a harsh reality for a new mum.
A plastic surgeon can help a woman to restore its “natural” look, i. e. the look a woman had before pregnancy, even improve it by lifting breasts. Quite often it involves breast enhancement in order to achieve the perfect volume and look.
Stomach skin tightening
Naturally, when it comes to pregnancy, stomach goes through the most changes. Stomach skin is no longer tight as it once was due to muscle loss and there are also everyone’s most hated – stretch marks. But, these unpleasant stretch marks are more likely to happen if you have a genetic predisposition to stretch marks and the risk is even greater if you gain excess pregnancy weight. When it is not possible to bring back that gorgeous flat tummy you once had, you can remove the excess skin and tighten it with the so-called tummy tuck surgery also known as abdominoplasty. It will help a woman to feel better.
When natural ways to restore body after childbirth have poor or no results, despite all the sweat and effort you’ve put into it, esthetic surgery may be your answer to the problem. However, it surely doesn’t mean you should eat anything you want and skip exercise. Healthy nutrition and workout should be the essential part of your daily life. On the top of all, it’s important to realize that pregnancy is a specific state during which you shouldn’t double the quantity of the food but DOUBLE THE QUALITY. This will cut down the “damage” caused by pregnancy and leave you and your child happy without missing a thing. Remember, happy mommy, happy baby.
