Reversing the Effects of Pregnancy

Motherhood comes with many joys and the miracle of birth is an incredible experience. However, many women wish that the price of motherhood did not include the changes to their body. Pregnancy can take its toll, especially for women that have had multiple pregnancies. Weight gain and stretched skin can alter the look of the breasts and abdomen, but there are plastic surgery options to reverse many of the effects of pregnancy.

Body Makeovers for Moms

During pregnancy, many women gain 20-30 pounds or more, mostly in their stomach and breasts. This enlargement can permanently change the elasticity of the skin and tissues, even if any excess weight is lost after pregnancy. The stomach may not be as flat or taut as it once was and breasts may sag or change size. Even exercise may not reverse the effects, which is why some women choose to get a body makeover through plastic surgery. This makeover can include:

  • Liposuction to remove excess fat from tummy, hips and thighs
  • A tummy tuck to tighten the abdomen
  • Breast reduction or enhancement
  • Breast lift

Each woman is different and may desire a different combination of procedures to reverse the effects of pregnancy. While it may not be possible to completely revert the body to its pre-pregnancy form, plastic surgery procedures can restore a flatter stomach and perkier breasts.

Motherhood does not mean you need to give up feeling attractive and sexy in your own body. If you are self-conscious of changes caused by pregnancy, consider getting a body makeover to reverse many of the effects of pregnancy. You deserve to feel confident and look your best – consult an experienced plastic surgeon to find out the best option to give you back the body you love.

Is Mammoplasty Right for You?

Breast size and shape is not just an aesthetic issue; it can also affect your health. If you have larger or droopy breasts, their weight can put stress on your upper body, especially your back. Mammoplasty is a breast reduction surgery that can help correct imbalance and posture problems that can cause pain and discomfort, as well as change the appearance of the breasts. For many women, this procedure can make a life-altering change that can improve their health and quality of life.

Reasons to Explore Mammoplasty

While many women want to increase their breast size, there are many others that want the opposite. The reasons for mammoplasty range from pain reduction and discomfort issues to cosmetic preference. Some of the reasons women seek information on mammoplasty or breast reduction surgery include:

  • Back pain from heavy breasts
  • Discomfort when jogging or playing sports
  • Difficulty finding clothes that fit correctly or comfortably
  • Self-consciousness about over-sized or drooping breasts

If any of these concerns sound familiar, you may be a good candidate for mammoplasty. While breast reduction is plastic surgery, if the benefits to your quality of life or confidence level make it worth the investment, it may be the right choice for you.

Mammoplasty has the same criteria as breast augmentation when you are vetting a plastic surgeon. You want a plastic surgeon that has extensive experience in breast reductions, both for health and cosmetic purposes. Even if your main concern is your health and comfort, you still want your breasts to look natural and well-formed after the surgery. For the best results, carefully research your choice of plastic surgeons to find a professional that specializes in mammoplasty with extensive credentials in this field.

Health Risks of Large Breasts

While many women dream of having larger, fuller breasts, those that were born well-endowed are often plagued by issues that affect their health. Even those that enjoy the look and shape of their larger breasts are most likely dealing with health issues that are directly related to the excess weight they add to the front of their body. Here are some of the problems that large breasts can cause:

  • Back pain. The mere weight of larger breasts can cause excess stress on the back, especially for the active woman. Many women with large breasts complain of constant back pain from supporting this weight.
  • Nerve issues. Some women with larger breast have nerve problems in their neck and shoulders that can cause numbness in their arms and hands. This can be caused by poor posture from slumping forward due to the heaviness of their breasts.
  • Skin irritation. Large breasts can cause skin irritation from the rubbing of the bra under the breast or the pressure of the straps on the shoulders. Also, the moist area under the breast can become inflamed with rashes and become sore.

Some women are willing to live with these health issues to keep their large breasts. However, even a small breast reduction can make a large difference in reducing many of these symptoms. A woman can still have big, full breasts after a surgical reduction while ridding herself of the pain and other health issues.

If you are tired of living with the health issues of large breasts, consult an experienced plastic surgeon about breast reduction surgery. It could improve your quality of life and health.
