How does motherhood affect a woman’s body?
Motherhood involves a physical, hormonal and emotional change in women’s lives. One consequence of this is the change in body appearance, which is a problem for many mothers who do not achieve a natural recovery. One mechanism to solve this problem is postpartum cosmetic surgery procedures, which allow a recovery of the figure and improve several areas of the body that have been affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Postpartum cosmetic surgery techniques
- Lipolaser: the abdomen, for example, is one of the most affected areas after pregnancy. There is an excess of fat and flaccidity of the tissues and, for this, most specialists in Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery recommend lipolaser. Although if the accumulated fat is abundant, it is preferable to opt for traditional liposuction.
- Abdominoplasty: in more severe cases in which there is a sagging of the abdominal wall with flaccidity or muscular separation of the anterior rectus, the surgical solution is abdominoplasty. The muscular wall is strengthened and the fat is removed from the excess skin.
