Pregnancy was the adventure of a lifetime. You watched your body go through significant changes while your baby grew inside of you. With each passing month, you waited in eager anticipation for that instant when you would hold a new, little person in your arms.
That moment has finally come, and you may be filled with a joy that is greater than anything you have ever known.
Every minute of waiting and all of the changes were worth it, but you may wish you could have your pre-pregnancy body back. You’ve shed the baby weight, you exercise, and you eat well. There’s only one problem.
Your stomach is still stretched out of shape, and you can’t get rid of the fat that is clinging to your midsection. You may want to consider a tummy tuck.
What Happens During a Tummy Tuck?
When you have a tummy tuck, the surgeon makes incisions and removes excess fat to give you the contours you had before pregnancy. Your incisions are then closed and you’ll be off to recovery.
What are the Benefits of a Tummy Tuck after Pregnancy?
A tummy tuck may be able to help you get the figure you enjoyed before your body went through the drastic changes that occurred during pregnancy.
Carrying a baby can put a great deal of strain on your body, stretching your skin and tissues, while fat accumulates as well.
In some cases, no amount of exercise or dieting may address the trouble spots that you see when you look at your abdomen. A tummy tuck may help you look and feel better about yourself.
Each time you look in the mirror or slip on your favorite clothes, you may enjoy your new physique.
However, you may need to continue to exercise and eat a healthy diet in order to maintain your results. Otherwise, you could be back to square one.
If you are planning on having more children, it may be recommended that you wait on a tummy tuck procedure because your body may go through the same changes again.
To avoid repeat surgeries, you may want to wait until you are no longer thinking about having more children in the future.
