Why do I still look pregnant?

During Pregnancy, the body undergoes a variety of changes very quickly such as extra weight is stored throughout the body to make sure that the mother has enough energy stockpiled to give her strength and fulfil the special needs of her body through the pregnancy. One of the primary changes during pregnancy, obviously, is the expansion of the uterus to accommodate the fetes inside it. To allow the expansion of the uterus, the abdominal muscles also stretch and make room for the growing baby within. This can cause the abdominal muscles to separate which if often permanent. Once the abdominal skin is stretched to its limit over and over again through multiple pregnancies, it eventually reaches a point when it cannot bounce back (no matter how many crunches you do!). You may be very surprised by the way your tummy looks after child birth. Even though your baby is out, you may still have a round, squishy midsection that makes you look like you’re six months pregnant. Pregnancy results in skin expansion and it is believed can only be reduced through cosmetic surgery though removal of the extra skin. More than ever, you have exciting options to reverse the clock & those unwanted signs of child bearing like Tummy-tuck, Mommy-Makeover and Breast-lift.
