Childbirth is without a doubt one of the greatest joys in a woman’s life. However, the physical and psychological tolls shortly after childbirth may be quite challenging for the new mother. Fortunately, recent advancements in both theoretical and applied sciences have made it possible to make such milestone in a woman’s life more bearable.
Postpartum depression is now widely discussed and not considered a taboo anymore. On the other hand, a vast array of cosmetic procedures are now available for the new mother to regain his pre-baby body back. These procedures are targeted to improve areas of the body that have significantly changed following childbirth. Weakened abdominal muscles and loose abdominal skin is one of such changes. During initial consultations, new mothers would often ask about their options in improving the appearance of their abdominal muscles and skin. Every so often, these women have tried both diet and exercise but didn’t achieve the results they expected.
Choosing Between a Liposuction and a Tummy Tuck
When deciding between a liposuction or a tummy tuck to improve abdominal contours following childbirth, your existing concerns should be thoroughly considered.
If your primary goal is to remove tiny pockets of abdominal fat, liposuction is your best bet. There are various types of liposuction techniques that is currently available but its end goal is one and the same — it removes fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. However, keep in mind that liposuction will not remove stretch marks and other concerns that arise from loose abdominal muscles. This is where a tummy tuck comes into the picture.
By and large, a tummy tuck procedure is ideal if you want to tighten slack abdominal muscles and remove significant amounts of excess abdominal skin. Ultimately, a tummy tuck is the ideal solution if your main concerns has to do with loose skin and less of abdominal fat.
