To put the physical effects of pregnancy behind them and prepare themselves for motherhood, both mentally and physically, some women feel it’s important to look their best as soon as possible after childbirth. Getting back in shape and having breast augmentation surgery performed helps women prepare for the next chapter in their lives.
The act of giving birth takes a toll on a woman's body. A woman can gain 15 to 25 kilos in the span of a few months. About six to seven kilos of that weight comes off directly after childbirth. It can usually take up to a year to lose the rest.
With the modern technology available today, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t look your best just because you’ve recently welcomed a new arrival to the family. Many women choose to have breast augmentation performed to restore their body to its pre-childbirth state.
If you’ve recently given birth, you may be itching to improve the look of your skin and get back in the gym to regain your strength. But before you start making plans to exercise and undergo breast augmentation as a means of self-improvement, check with your doctor.
If you had a normal pregnancy and delivery, and your doctor gives you the green light, you can start exercising again when you feel ready. Don’t rush yourself. Be honest in assessing your readiness for exercise. If the childbirth was your first, you may underestimate the toll it took on your body. Pushing your body too far isn’t what you want to do, particularly with so many new motherly duties to perform.
It can be a good idea to start by retraining your core. Forget about jumping straight into situps and abdominal crunches. Your abdominal muscles have spent the past few months being stretched out of shape. They need to relearn their normal functions.
Core training includes the pelvic floor. Start with Kegel exercises. These are simple exercises that involve contracting and relaxing the muscles in your pelvic floor. They’ll also tell you whether you’re ready to start exercising or should rest a bit longer. Just squeeze as if your trying to stop urinating. Hold the squeeze for up to five seconds, then release and relax. You want to build up the ability to do these exercises at least three times a day with ten repetitions of squeezing and relaxing each time.
If your abdominals respond well to Kegel exercises, you can add some belly-breathing exercises. Inhale deeply, allowing your belly to expand and your pelvic floor to relax. Then, as you exhale, draw your belly in and your pelvic floor up into a Kegel.
The great thing about these exercises is they can be done anywhere at any time, even while nursing or holding your baby. Try and combine baby-bonding with your exercise routine. Explore a mommy-and-me fitness class that targets the physical needs of new mothers with the routines they teach. They also help you meet other new parents and you can share tips and experiences. Jogging strollers are another way to increase your exercise intensity while spending time with your new baby.
After childbirth, most women choose to breastfeed. Breastfeeding is often said to be better for your child’s health. Breast milk provides your baby with protection from infections and diseases. It also helps build a stronger bond between mother and baby.
But breastfeeding often takes a physical toll on a woman’s breasts. Your breasts may begin sagging or drooping after a prolonged period of breastfeeding. Breast augmentation restores your breasts to more of a natural, pre-childbirth shape.
In today’s modern augmentation surgery, gel breast implants are inserted underneath the natural tissue or behind the chest muscles by making careful incisions. You and your doctor can even choose the location of the incisions to reduce scarring as much as possible. Surgeons today can insert implants from incisions in the fold underneath the breast, from an incision made on the nipple, in the armpit, or even from an incision in your belly-button.
You also can choose the shape of your breast, either round (memory gel) or teardrop-shaped (memory shape). These implants offer a thinner wall and a more natural look and feel than older saline implants. Round breasts are the most popular shape with women who have been breastfeeding and have lost the fullness they once had.
