Pregnancy's Impact on Your Body (And How We Can Help)

Pregnancy's Impact on Your Body (And How We Can Help)

You’re looking at your body in the mirror months after pregnancy and nursing. You’re proud of what your body has done in giving birth, and you love your bundle of joy, but you want your pre-pregnancy body back. Eating right and exercising hasn’t gotten you there. You want to feel desirable again.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jeff Angobaldo at Renaissance Plastic Surgery, PLLC, in Plano, Texas, can help restore your body’s shape after pregnancy with a mommy makeover. The procedure is individualized to address your specific needs. Following is a summary of the ways Dr. Angobaldo can rejuvenate your body and help boost your confidence. 

Breast changes after pregnancy and restorative procedures 

When you were nursing, the milk in your breasts may have stretched your skin tissue. After pregnancy and nursing, you may find that your breasts have deflated and become stretched out. It’s not uncommon for breasts to sag after pregnancy. However, you don’t want to go through the rest of your life with deformed breasts. You want your rounded breasts back. 

On the other hand, you may have larger breasts now and find them too heavy and pendulous, or find that your breasts are a smaller size.

Dr. Angobaldo can perform a breast augmentation if you’ve ended up with smaller, deflated breasts, possibly using a fat transfer. Likewise, he can do a breast reduction if your breasts have become too large, and you want a smaller cup size. 

If your breasts are sagging, he can raise your breasts, eliminate excess skin, and tighten the tissue giving your breasts a rounded shape and a pleasing contour. If your areola has greatly enlarged, Dr. Angobaldo can reduce it at the same time. 

Abdominal changes after pregnancy and restorative procedures 

Your post-pregnancy abdominal area and flanks have stubborn fat that just won’t go away. A liposuction treatment removes these trouble spots of fat. 

Pregnancy can cause your abdominal muscles to tear apart; after all, your stomach had to expand for your growing baby. Now those muscles no longer hold in your organs and tissue effectively, so your stomach sticks out. Without the muscle support, you may develop back pain. 

If your abdomen is completely out of shape with folds of excess skin, you’re a candidate for a tummy tuck, which improves the abdomen’s appearance and repairs torn muscles. Dr. Angobaldo removes the excess skin and fat, then reconnects torn tissue between the abdominal muscles. 

If you have stretch marks in the lower abdomen, he can eliminate or reduce them, as well. You’ll have beautiful new contours and your abdomen will look much more toned. 

In summary, you can combine any of the following to reach your goals:
