So, you’ve been through a pregnancy (congratulations!) and have likely tried everything under the sun to finally rid yourself of that dreaded post-pregnancy pooch. Even with all that uphill jogging while toting stroller and baby along with you, you just can’t seem to lose the pooch. Now what?
Don’t worry, lots of new moms are in the same boat. Because of the natural effects that pregnancy and childbirth can have on your body, including stretched skin and added fat deposits, it can be difficult to get your pre-baby body back through diet and exercise alone.
Try a Tummy Tuck
If you just can’t seem to get that pesky post-pregnancy pooch to go away, you may want to consider getting a tummy tuck, which can restore the tightness of your abdominal skin and muscles that have been stretched due to pregnancy.
When regular exercise just isn’t cutting it, liposuction can be a great option to remove stubborn baby weight. The main difference between liposuction and a tummy tuck is that liposuction has no effect on loose, excess skin, whereas a tummy tuck does just that. If you’re only looking to get rid of a little post-pregnancy belly fat, you could be an ideal candidate for liposuction.
Consider a Combination
Because liposuction and tummy tucks often go hand-in-hand, the two are commonly done simultaneously. Liposuction doesn’t address excess skin but is very effective at removing stubborn pockets of fat. So, incorporating liposuction into a tummy tuck can deliver beautiful results.
Remember that there is a difference between a tummy tuck and weight loss surgery. Neither a tummy tuck nor liposuction are weight loss methods and should be used to enhance your body if you’re near your target weight.
