How Can a Body Lift Help After Pregnancy?

Posted July 16, 2018 in Body Lift

No experience will have such a life-changing effect on your world as having children. But with the joyful memories and unforgettable moments of pregnancy come the inevitable changes to your body. The largest of these changes occur in your midsection. After having children, your abdomen, hips, and thighs may bear no resemblance to what they were before you had children, and this sudden body shift can be a difficult realization for you. Just because you are now a mother doesn’t mean that you are no longer able to feel the way you want to in your skin, and for women who may be experiencing these negative body emotions after having children, a body lift can restore confidence and a positive body image.

A body lift combines a tummy tuck, thigh lift, and buttocks lift into one surgery. This procedure targets many of the areas affected by pregnancy to resculpt and return them to their pre-pregnancy form.

Tighter Abdomen

As to be expected, the abdomen takes the most significant hit with pregnancy. It is also the primary focus of a body lift. During pregnancy, your abdomen is forced to adjust and reform so as to adapt to your growing baby, and it cannot always bounce back. This means that you may be left with loose skin, weakened abdominal muscles, and unwanted belly fat. The tummy tuck performed through a body lift is designed to tighten and resculpt your entire abdomen, which leaves you looking leaner and more like your pre-pregnancy self.

Redefined Hips

Your hips will naturally widen with childbirth; there is no way around that. Unfortunately, due to this fact, the widening of the hip bones will make any excess fat on the hips much more pronounced. A body lift targets love handles and any excess skin to achieve a tightened and more balanced hourglass figure.

Slimmer, Lifted Contours

Pregnancy and childbirth affect your entire body, and through the process, the excess fat that is developed and stored may suddenly be distributed to areas that they never were before. This may be limited to the abdomen and hips, but it can also go directly to your thighs. The thigh lift portion of a body lift will remove excess fat and skin from the thighs, which can leave you slimmer and more confident, while a buttocks lift will return shape and a youthful quality to your backside.

The Benefits of a Body Lift

As pregnancy affects many areas on the body, it only makes sense that a procedure following pregnancy will address many of these areas. While you can choose to undergo these procedures separately, combining a tummy tuck, thigh lift, and buttocks lift into the body lift will allow you to attain the greatest amount of correction in the least amount of time and with less cost and stress.
