While your children generally tell you that you’re beautiful even when you’ve just woken up in the morning, you may not feel it. Pregnancy is an incredible journey and the rewards are astounding, but it does change your body.
Because of the way that pregnancy stretches the skin and separates the abdominal muscles, diet and exercise can be inadequate in tightening the abdominal area after childbirth. For many mothers who struggle to slim down after pregnancy, a tummy tuck la Jolla tis often the most effective way to achieve the desired shape and tone. A tummy tuck la Jolla is also an option for men or women who were once obese and still have excess fat deposits or loose skin around the belly. From post baby body perfection and excess fat from surgery, to the unfortunate effects of ageing, a tummy tuck la Jolla can have a massive positive impact on your life. During tummy tuck la Jolla surgery, clinically known as abdominoplasty, a plastic surgeon removes loose skin, tightens the abdominal muscles, and eliminates stubborn deposits of fat.
But sometimes it’s more than just your abdominal area that has changed due to pregnancy. Mommy makeover San Diego has become one of the top choices for women who have finished their child bearing. Whether a woman has had one child or more than two, it’s not always that easy to get back in shape and to enjoy the body they had before they began child bearing. Breasts and stomachs are often the most affected areas and these are two of the areas addressed during mommy makeover San Diego. The changes your body undergoes during pregnancy is often difficult to reverse, even with strict diets and exercise regimens – from breast augmentation or reduction and a tummy tuck, the mommy makeover addresses the issues most common, at the same time – which means that recovery can happen concurrently.
A tummy tuck also isn’t just for aesthetic reasons. By tightening the stomach muscles, your posture will improve. And this has numerous health benefits, not to mention giving you a more youthful look. Bad posture can put unusual strain on joint surfaces, which could lead to arthritis. Bad posture can also place stress on the ligaments that connect spinal joints and if you remain in a bad posture position through habit, this could constrict blood vessels and nerves in the spinal disk.
Tummy tuck in San Diego can also reduce the symptoms of Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), which is a bladder control problem that causes uncontrollable urine leakage when you cough, exercise, sneeze or even laugh. Women who have experienced a vaginal birth are at risk of this happening to them.
Whatever your needs, always be sure to seek the services of a board-certified cosmetic surgeon who has good experience in the procedure you want to have done. You’ll also need to be sure that you are as close as possible to your goal weight because excessive weight gain or loss can negatively impact the results of your surgery.
