During pregnancy, it is not uncommon for your body to accumulate fat in the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen. Depending on weight gain during your pregnancy, you may also accumulate fat in the back, arms, neck and face.
Following pregnancy, much of this weight can be removed through a regular exercise routine and a healthy diet, but many women find that stubborn deposits of fat will not respond to these methods.
A mommy makeover is a procedure in which Phoenix plastic surgeon Dr. John Corey addresses the many ways pregnancy has impacted your body. This procedure often includes body sculpting techniques such as a tummy tuck along with breast enhancement through augmentation or lift. Liposuction is also a common part of the mommy makeover procedure as it is extremely effective at removing excess deposits of fat to help tone and firm every area of your body.
What Liposuction can do
Liposuction can be used to remove stubborn deposits of fat from literally every area of your body. Combining liposuction with other procedures in a mommy makeover can help encourage skin shrinkage, and work to accentuate your natural curves. Liposuction is not always required in a mommy makeover procedure, but could be beneficial in yours. This is best determined by an experienced Phoenix liposuction surgeon like Dr. Corey.
