Phoenix Tummy Tuck and PregnancyA tummy tuck is a procedure in which excess skin and fat deposits are removed from your abdominal area. Board-certified Phoenix tummy tuck surgeon Dr. Richard Brown also uses this procedure to tighten abdominal muscles, producing a stronger and more toned midsection.
When a woman is pregnant, abdominal muscles become weak and separate, and skin must stretch to accommodate the growing baby. In addition, a woman’s body will begin to store fat deposits necessary for providing nutrition to the baby both in utero and during breastfeeding. If you plan on having children in the future, it is best to wait to undergo a tummy tuck procedure. This will ensure the best results for you, as additional pregnancies can compromise your results.
After having children, many women find that diet and exercise alone are insufficient to address the myriad changes pregnancy has made to their bodies. When this is the case, Dr. Brown can address multiple issues at once with a mommy makeover procedure.
The mommy makeover procedure may include:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Tummy tuck
- Thigh lift
Your procedure will be tailored to meet your unique concerns and to help restore your body to its most appealing and attractive state.
