The Pros and Cons of Liposuction After Childbirth

Pregnancy puts on extra pounds on a woman. Some women put on just a few that they lose right after the baby is born, and some unlucky women even put on hundreds. It all depends on the woman and her nutrition, body type, and other uncontrollable factors. After having a baby, of course most women want to get rid of the extra pounds. One idea is to have liposuction to get rid of the excess fat.

There are a few pros and a few cons to this procedure. Technically after giving birth to a child and waiting about 6-8 months, there is nothing wrong with having liposuction, especially if it is going to help you feel better as a woman and therefore as a mom. It is advised however to wait at least that amount of time to give your body time to heal from the damage done by the arduous process of childbirth and to get back to a somewhat normal health level. The issues with liposuction is that it removes the fat, but fat can grow back. If you don’t learn how to maintain your weight and follow the doctor’s orders during the liposuction recovery stage then it will be pointless. In a matter of weeks, you’ll be back to square one. It can also be dangerous if too much fat is removed. If you are opting for liposuction do not opt for more than 6-8 pounds in one session. Even this is usually divided into two sessions.

Another alternative to liposuction might be a tummy tuck or tummy liposuction. A tummy tuck can get rid of the excess skin and might give you a more permanent, lasting result as opposed to liposuction after the birth of a child. However, moms planning to have this procedure must be done with having more children as it involves having the skin on the tummy area permanently improved. So mothers, the choice is yours.

    After a childbirth more and more women decide to have plastic surgery because it’s very hard to recover and have the same body as before the pregnancy:P

    After my second daughter came to this world I decided it’s time to do something for myself so I went for liposuction in Toronto. But guess what?? I came back home after I had not just lipo but also a tummy tuck surgery because the saggy skin had to be removed and this was the only option.
    Now I have perfect abs thanks to these surgeries and off course the diet and exercises I continued to practice.

    I was just plain depressed with my body shape after my third pregnancy. I tried diets, body shapers, pills. you name it, I tried it; except surgery. I was very apprehensive about it not because of the pain but because of safety and I wasn’t sure who would be the right doctor for me. quite a few of my friends in Toronto had different procedures after pregnancy and they were mostly happy with the results so I decided to take the plunge so I had a liposuction and I am ecstatic about it! bye bye loose wrinkly tummy and hello firm sexy abs!
