Many women today are opting to have cosmetic surgery after giving birth, to regain their confidence and their pre-childbirth body. A woman’s body undergoes significant changes during and after pregnancy and with a busy schedule, there is not always time to exercise as much as is ideal, or age has simply started to set in.
The most popular post-baby surgery is breast surgery and tummy tucks, as these areas are the most affected areas. Breasts can become saggy after breastfeeding and the residual skin around the abdomen area can be very difficult to get rid of.
It is important to note that most plastic surgeons, such as Dr Nerina Wilkinson, recommend women to wait until they have had their last child before undergoing any cosmetic surgery. During pregnancy, fat develops naturally on certain parts of the body as a physical preparation for childbirth.
Weight gain during pregnancy occurs across the whole body, but the stomach and breasts are two areas which can undergo the most changes. The stomach muscles become stretched and regaining their original tone can be difficult. Liposuction is a popular procedure to get rid of pockets of fat around this area, permanently removing them.
Breasts also undergo changes in size and shape due to breastfeeding. While breastfeeding, breasts usually increase in size, but once a woman is no longer breastfeeding, the breasts will shrink and the resulting excess skin may cause the shape of the breasts to change. Some women elect to have a breast lift, while others may prefer to have breast enlargement surgery performed depending on their personal preference, but the ultimate goal is to get them closer to their original shape.
Some women choose to have surgery in order to keep their breasts at the size they were during pregnancy, as they prefer having a bigger bust. An area which very few people talk about is vaginal reconstruction, a surgery that more and more women are opting for post-childbirth.
During childbirth, the vagina undergoes many different stresses and can change shape, leading to changes in the way in which intimacy is experienced. To find out more about these procedures, contact Dr Wilkinson’s rooms to make an appointment.Read More
