To those who are able to easily shed their pregnancy weight after the birth of their child, congratulations! For many other women, however, it is not an easy task. Residual pounds, loose skin, and sagging are all challenges that many new moms deal with after pregnancy. What should you do when dieting and exercise don’t seem to make a dent?
Knowing that so many people have been diligent in their health care and self-care, many women want to know what they can do to feel even better about their physical appearance post-pregnancy.
Luckily, there are many options that a board-certified plastic surgeon can provide to help women take care of that extra baby weight. One popular option offered at our Houston practice is a tummy tuck.
After pregnancy women can choose to get a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, to remove extra skin from the lower abdominals and tighten the six-pack muscle region. This restores the shape and figure to the body’s pre-pregnancy shape and includes skin and muscle tightening.
There are also instances where patients choose to combine a tummy tuck with a breast lift or augmentation to ensure they get the best results. To learn more about your options, call our office: (713) 521-4777.
