The weight gained during pregnancy is natural and necessary for sustaining the baby being carried. The average woman gains an additional 24 to 38 pounds during pregnancy, but this number can be higher or lower depending on your anatomy and many other factors.
No matter how much weight is gained, some of it will, inevitably, be stored in areas such as the thighs, hips, buttocks, waist, abdomen, and back. These pockets of accumulated tissue and fat are often unresponsive to diet and exercise, becoming a permanent part of your figure. With a mommy makeover procedure at the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Eric Desman can target these areas, restore ideal contours, and help you regain your pre-pregnancy body.
One of the most common procedures in a mommy makeover is liposuction. This is because liposuction is the only way to remove stubborn deposits of fat from nearly every area of your body. Dr. Desman utilizes state-of-the-art liposuction techniques designed to safely and effectively remove pockets of fat while encouraging your skin to firm to shapely new contours, restoring a symmetrical, slim, attractive look and greatly improving the appearance of your entire frame.
