A small but not insignificant portion of women who have had liposuction face a common challenge afterward. For these women, pregnancy may cause them to question the effects that the pregnancy will have on their bodies and on the results of the liposuction. However, pregnancy after liposuction is quite common and is not associated with any risks. So, for women who are pregnant or considering pregnancy after having had liposuction, there is no need to worry about the effects of the pregnancy on their bodies or on the results of the procedure.
If you’re considering liposuction, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, if you have the procedure done in the abdomen area, you can expect to have a cute baby belly for the duration of your pregnancy. This is because many of the fat cells are removed from the area, making it easier to get your tummy back to its normal shape after baby is born. Additionally, you’ll bounce back much faster after the pregnancy since there won’t be as much fat accumulation.
You may very well find that, though you may not gain excess weight in the abdomen, the fat deposits appear and gather in other areas of the body such as the buttocks or the thighs. You may even find that the fat deposits in unusual areas such as the hands and feet. This may not be desirable, but is a common issue for women who get pregnant after liposuction.
The female body is designed to carry extra weight during pregnancy. This is beneficial for the baby throughout the pregnancy, and it can also help with things like breastfeeding after the baby is born. Additionally, storing fat helps a woman recover after giving birth, since caring for a newborn takes a lot of energy. It’s normal to gain some weight during pregnancy, but try not to go overboard. Eating more is a given when you’re pregnant, but that doesn’t mean you should go overboard. A bit of research will help you understand how much is too much. Talk to your doctor about what a healthy weight range is for you and your baby. This way, you can make smart decisions about the food you eat throughout your pregnancy.
A lot of women think about getting liposuction to help them get their post-baby bodies back, but what they don’t realize is that it may be more beneficial to wait until after they’ve gone through pregnancy and had their children. Once your body has recovered from pregnancy and from childbirth, it can be an ideal time to have liposuction done. A very common procedure happening now is for women to ask for a tummy tuck at the same time they have a scheduled C-section. If you know for sure that you’re done having children and your family is complete, then liposuction before pregnancy may be the best option for you. Keep in mind, however, that there are no risks or harms associated with liposuction during pregnancy, so you may want to wait until after you’ve given birth if you’re not yet sure about your family planning.
