For a woman, having a child is one of, if not the best, thing that can happen to them. As lovely as a child is, pregnancy can wreak havoc to a woman’s body. When a woman experiences this change in their body, oftentimes they don’t feel as attractive. Here are the 5 Changes that happen to a woman’s body post pregnancy and what can be done about it.
1. Saggy Stomach
Because you’ve given birth, the skin of your stomach has expanded which leads to a saggy stomach that is most likely permanent. Even after exercise, most likely your stomach will never be the same. This is why tummy tucks have become so popular throughout the years. A tummy tuck, aka abdominoplasty, attempts to bring back the stomach you had pre-pregnancy. It removes extra fat around the stomach and tightens the saggy skin.
Once you’ve given birth, the skin on your stomach has stretched out so much that it probably won’t snap back. It’s kind of like a plastic bag that you’ve filled up a little beyond capacity. When you take everything out of the bag, it won’t go back to its original shape. Within a year or two, your skin may bounce back a bit, but you’ll have the effects of aging and gravity fighting against you.
2. Discolored skin
“Some women develop what’s called the “mask of pregnancy.” That tan-colored area around your eyes will start to fade. Women who suffered from severe acne during pregnancy should see their skin start to clear up. However, other women will begin to experience a red rash that around their mouth and chin or suffer from extremely dry skin. Both of these conditions should be gone within weeks.” If your skin has not bounced back, then a good solution is one of our skin and laser treatments.
3. Stretch Marks
“Stretchmarks, or striae, develop when elastic fibres located just below your skin break. When you get pregnant (or when you gain weight quickly), your body grows at a rate that your skin just can’t keep up with, and this is how stretchmarks develop. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, about 90% of women develop striae when they’re seven or more months pregnant.” A good solution for this can be a tummy tuck or breast lift.
4. Stubborn Fat
One of the most obvious changes in your body is weight gain. No matter how often you exercise or eat well, it seems like that weight won’t budge or the fat doesn’t go away. If this is your problem, liposuction can get rid of the fat, once and for all.
