Your Baby, Your Body and You

Losing weight and toning your body can be difficult at the best of times, but losing that post baby weight can prove especially tricky for some women. Although a good diet, exercise and some creams and lotions can help, sometimes it is not enough, especially for stubborn areas of fat. For difficult areas of fat, surgery can help improve the appearance of skin and reduce problem areas.


When the baby arrives, running around after your little one and keeping up with your usual work can be enough for some women to quickly return to the pre-baby weight. Exercise combined with a balanced, healthy diet can also be enough to keep some woman in shape and happy with their body, but there are difficult areas that can prove unresponsive to standards modes of weight loss. The tummy is a difficult area to kept toned in daily life, but add nine months of baby weight too it and you may find that it never looks the way it did before. There are some surgery options that can return your body to the way you want it to look quicker than other modes, such as Liposuction or the tummy tuck.

MYA explain that the tummy tuck is a procedure that involves the removal of saggy skin from the tummy and the tightening of abdominal muscles, which can leave the tummy looking younger and tighter. It is not a weight loss procedure but the effects can leave you feeling more confident and happier to wear clothes that you may not have considered before. The tummy tuck is often combined with the liposuction procedure. This involves a cannula being inserted through tiny incisions in the skin, and the fat is broken down with fluid which is then removed. It can help remove stubborn pockets of fat which can give the appearance of weight loss, and the procedure itself can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on how many areas of the body it is being performed on. Another procedure which is growing in popularity is the Vaser liposuction, and uses ultrasound technology to target large areas of fat from delicate areas such as the tummy or bingo wings. The technology is powerful enough to target multiple areas at once, and just like the liposuction it removes stubborn areas of fat.

Although surgery isn’t for everyone, it can help improve areas of the body that cannot be improved with standard methods of weight loss or toning.
