Although pregnancy is a beautiful process with an even more beautiful result, it often leaves your body in disarray. From the extra weight, to stretch marks, to the extra flabs of skin—new mothers have a lot of baggage to carry post- pregnancy. If you are still recovering from a pregnancy and are having trouble getting your body back to where it was 9 months ago, liposuction may be the answer for you.
New mothers are no longer chained to their post pregnancy bodies, thanks to the new advanced liposuction techniques. Liposuction allows you to restore your body to its former glory in just a few hours.
Although pregnancy changes the body in many ways, perhaps the most common way that remains an issue for years to come is the collection of fat deposits that just will not budge. These fat deposits often sit around the stomach, breasts, and legs. No matter how much exercising and dieting you practice, sometimes these deposits from pregnancy will not leave your body. Liposuction can help you get rid of these stubborn pockets of fat once and for all. This minimally invasive procedure removes fat a few pounds at a time, contouring the body to give you back the figure you once had. This procedure can be performed wherever you need it—whether it be on the face, thighs, or somewhere else entirely. Wherever your stubborn fat is, it can be removed with liposuction.
Although some may view that liposuction is not safe, especially right after a pregnancy. This fear is influenced further by the fact that if you have just brought a baby into the world, you know they depend on you to stay safe and healthy so that you can take care of their needs as they arise. Luckily, liposuction is now safer than ever before. The danger many accompany with liposuction is due to the general anesthetic it requires. New technology has created methods of liposuction that do not require general anesthetic—only local anesthetic. This eliminates the fear of bad reactions and other complications to the anesthetic used during surgery. Liposuction can be performed without general anesthetic through methods like Tumescent and Smart Lipo, as well a Vaser liposuction.
Advancements in liposuction technology have also made it possible for you to recover in under 48 hours, which eliminates the need to stay away from your child in the hospital. After the surgery, you should avoid any strenuous activities like exercise. You will also need to wear a compression garment. After the surgery, you will likely feel mild discomfort in the area for a few days. This is normal and will pass with time.
If you are struggling to lose weight after childbirth and are desperate for a solution, liposuction is the way to go. You can be back to work as a mother in only two days, with minimal risk and discomfort. If you are in South Florida, give us a call today to schedule a consultation.
