Some women are lucky and bounce right back into their pre-pregnancy shape. For others, the quest to regain a toned abdomen and perky breasts seems to difficult.When diet and exercise fail to help, there are cosmetic surgeries that can.
There are two factors related to pregnancy that really impact a woman’s body. First, the baby itself stretches out the skin on the abdomen. Even after the baby is born, it takes up to eight weeks for the uterus to return to a pre-pregnancy state.
The skin, especially when stretch marks are involved, may not bounce right back. Add in weight gain and fat stores that are necessary for the baby but can be taxing to lose.
Breast Lift and Tummy Tuck are the two ways to regain the shape
The breast lift is a surgical procedure that helps lift the breast to a more youthful position. It can also help create a firmer breast with a more pleasing shape. If your areola grew during breastfeeding or pregnancy, something that often occurs, a breast lift can also address that issue.
To perform a breast lift, a surgeon makes incision that is typically in the shape of an anchor, circling the areola and then extending vertically downward and ending horizontally in the crease beneath the breast. Through this incision, breast tissue is lifted to a higher position and reshaped.
