after giving birth

Childbirth is one of the great acts bestowed upon women. The act of carrying, nurturing, and ultimately delivering life into this world is one of the great acts that differentiates us as women. And it is for this reason that a mother will always be a mother. However, let’s be honest about it, pregnancy is not easy and it does take its toll physically. This can affect our self-esteem and even our married life. In many instances it is difficult psychologically for a man to picture his wife intimately after witnessing a birth and when your body is no longer what it was, it makes the task of re-establishing intimacy post-birth that much more difficult.

Thankfully, we live in a world where improving one’s physical appearance is no longer deemed narcissistic or shallow. Everybody wants to look good and plastic surgery is considered a viable option for women who want to regain their former glory following the ravages of giving birth.

Following are some of the more popular plastic surgery procedures following childbirth:

Breast Procedures Following Breastfeeding

There are many reasons to breastfeed your baby despite all of the common breastfeeding problems mothers can experience. Many women consider breastfeeding the highlight of their motherhood. The intimate time with your baby where you continue to nurture them and provide them with the best nutrition possible is a magical time. However, after your stint of breastfeeding is complete, you may want to consider a breast lift, breast reduction, or breast augmentation; as the need or want dictates. Women often define themselves by their breasts as this is usually one of the more prominent differentiating features between the sexes. Plastic surgery is your opportunity to have the breasts you’ve always wanted.


Sometimes it seems as though no matter how much you diet or exercise, your body simply will not return to its pre-birth giving shape. All of the Weight Watchers and Nutrisystem meals  you’ve been eating are showing no impact. This is often because the distribution of fat has changed and the fat is diet-resistant. Given that you have exhausted all possible methods of returning to your previous self, albeit unsuccessfully, liposuction may be a viable alternative to remove the stubborn fat and help re-sculpt your body.

Removal of Scars and Stretch Marks

Scars and stretch marks are often part and parcel of giving birth, and although they are a small price to pay for what we ultimately receive, that doesn’t mean that they have to be a permanent reminder of what transpired. Are creams like Dr. Max Powers Advanced Scar Therapy Serum not working as fast as you may like? Lasers can be used to stimulate collagen growth as well as minimize the look of scars and stretch marks. Another alternative is the wearing of silicon sheets to reduce the impact of scarring.

Tightening Up Your Tummy (Abdominoplasty)

It is not surprising that after nine-odd months of being stretched to and fro that your tummy and abdominal muscles may not return to its original, flat shape. Sometimes it takes the help of a skilled plastic surgeon to achieve this with a procedure called a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck involves the surgical removal of excess skin and fat and the tightening of abdominal muscles so that your tummy regains its former taut appearance.

Skin Rejuvenation

Have you been trying the latest wrinkle creams out there with no hard results? Pregnancy wreaks havoc on your hormones that may affect your skin resulting in acne scarring, wrinkles, and general damage. Plastic surgeons have a range of solutions at their disposal to restore your skin to its former, glowing self.



  1. Really good guest post, Sharon. Of the women I’ve dated who have had children the first one that always bothers them the most in the stretch marks. I’m way beyond that in life in being attracted to someone. If I like her and want to have a relationship with her the stretch marks aren’t even on the table as far as concerns. HOWEVER, I’m not walking in her shoes and I completely understand any want or need for some improvement if that’s what she chooses. No lipo…I’ve seen that go wrong too many times first hand. I will definitely tweet this out! 🙂

    • That’s what my husband always says. He always like I don’t even see the stretch marks and I’m like “Whatever”, of course. I guess us women look at ourselves differently and then project it onto others. Flaws are just so easy to see when you are judging yourself. Thanks for the tweet 🙂
