Postpartum Liposuction

Understanding Postpartum Liposuction and Body Contouring

Postpartum weight is a common problem, and most women retain the extra pounds, even with rigorous exercise and diet. In most cases, the new mother will gain more weight and their health will deteriorate. This trend occurs because their attention moves from self to the newborn. Naturally, caring for your child should be the priority. 

However, self-neglect and weight retention can have dire consequences for you and your family. These repercussions include post-pregnancy complications, obesity, postpartum depression and related health issues. Therefore, if you are difficulties in losing weight after pregnancy through diet and exercise, you should consider postpartum liposuction and body contouring.

Postpartum Liposuction 

As implied, liposuction is a procedure designed to suction fat out of the body. This process can be highly advantageous for women with stubborn pockets of fat around the problem areas. For instance, after pregnancy, most new mothers will find it difficult to get rid of fat around the tummy, buttock, and thighs. 
In the past, liposuction was a highly invasive procedure which required significant incisions for fat removal. However, there are new proprietary techniques which are designed to minimize the surgical damage and reduce recovery time. In general, the surgeon will make a small incision on the problem area, melt the underlying fat and suction it out.

Body Contouring

When you lose the postpartum fat, you will have loose or sagging skin around the tummy, thighs, and buttocks. This loose skin forms wrinkles and is unattractive. Body contouring is a procedure which eliminates this detriment. The techniques employed will remove the excess flaps of skin and some of the underlying fat to create a firmer and shapelier figure.Also, the medical doctor will reshape the underlying supporting tissue in your body. During the procedure, the expert will consider the three-dimensional view of your body instead of focusing on only the problem areas. Body contouring techniques are suitable for use on the entire body, including the thighs, breasts, arms, tummy and even face.

Postpartum liposuction and body contouring are useful processes for gaining your beautiful body back. If you are interested in losing the extra weight quickly and safely, contact us for a consultation with a licensed expert.
