Your Curves After The Kids

The 9 months of a pregnancy is a beautiful time for many women. She's making the sacrifice to bring a bundle of joy into the world. At the same time, pregnancy can change the way her stomach, waist, buttocks, and thighs look -- all to varying degrees. After the childbearing years, many women just want to get their pre-pregnancy body back.

Most Common Procedures

In cosmetic surgery today, there are options for moms who want to get back to their pre-pregnancy body. When talking about what options are available below her waist, a Tummy Tuck may be all she needs. In other cases, traditional liposuction or Smart-Lipo (a laser-assisted sculpting technique) is the best option for the love handles or thighs, in which unwanted fat is removed. Fat transfers can also be helpful, such as with the Brazilian Butt Lift where fat removed during liposuction can be transferred to the buttock area. Thigh lifts may also be an option for some women.
