Even years after having a baby, many mothers feel uncomfortable with their bodies; the weight gain, combined with the stress of pregnancy and birth makes many moms feel like they are strangers in their own bodies. While many mothers promise themselves that they will get back in shape after their child has grown older, the stress of everyday life and caring for children often gets in the way, making it seemingly impossible to lose weight. However, instead of living with the constant feelings of regret and shame, mothers are taking back their bodies with tummy tuck surgery in Newtown, and revealing their more youthful-feeling and confident selves.
An abdominoplasty, or “tummy tuck,” is a procedure used to remove stubborn belly fat, fix sagging and loose skin, and tighten the abdominal muscles, all of which are common complaints that mothers have even after their child has grown. After a tummy tuck, mothers report that they feel younger and more full of confidence, as the procedure tightens their stomachs, give a more fit appearance.
Even for mothers who have lost a significant amount of weight, loose muscles and the last stubborn bits of fat may still raise concern. Our SmartLipo™ in Newtown provides a less invasive alternative to a full tummy tuck, and it is intended for those with minor concerns about fat in a concentrated area. SmartLipo™ is an alternative to the liposuction procedure, which is intended to remove excess fat. SmartLipo™ uses lasers to liquefy fat cells and then remove them with a small tube called a cannula. Instead of going under general anesthesia like traditional liposuction, SmartLipo™ uses local anesthesia. Because of this, it has a much lower downtime — most patients return to work after one or two days.
Mothers (or any woman!) looking to take their lives back into their own hands are encouraged to call Bucks County Plastic Surgery & Dermatology at 215-860-9600 for more information on tummy tucks and SmartLipo™.
