Solutions for Your Post-Pregnancy Paunch

Plastic Surgeon Scottsdale

Pregnancy causes many changes to your body, and having your baby doesn’t necessarily mean that your body will return to its pre-pregnancy shape. Among the complaints, women have after pregnancy is that the paunch they developed simply will not go away, regardless of how determinedly they focus on diet and exercise. In these cases, cosmetic surgery could be a solution. Here is a look at some of the options Dr. Geoghegan may present for dealing with your post-pregnancy paunch.

If you have a pocket of fat around your midsection that won’t respond to your diet and exercise efforts, then liposuction could be right for you. During liposuction, fat cells are removed through a series of small incisions around your abdomen. You’ll notice results almost immediately, though you won’t see the full effect of the treatment until a few months later. There are several different approaches to liposuction. Dr. Geoghegan will help you choose the right one for you.

Tummy Tuck
If the muscles in your midsection were stretched during pregnancy and won’t return to their tighter state, then your plastic surgeon may recommend a tummy tuck. With this procedure, your surgeon stitches stretched muscles back into a healthy position and removes excess skin and tissue for a leaner appearance. Tummy tucks are performed under general anesthesia and recovery can be longer than with liposuction, but the results are dramatic.

Mommy Makeover
More and more new moms are opting for mommy makeover procedures that combine multiple plastic surgeries to address several different concerns about your post-pregnancy body. You can combine liposuction and a tummy tuck to address your paunch and add in other procedures that could further help you reach your treatment goals, such as a breast lift, breast implants, and even facial procedures.
