Battle of the baby bulge increasingly beaten using cosmetic treatments
02 September 2013Non-surgical and cosmetic treatments are increasingly being used as an option to help women rid themselves of the excess skin and body fat which they gain as a result of pregnancy. And while a change in diet and more exercise should be the first priorities for any woman as she seeks to regain her pre-pregnancy weight and shape, Canadian news website TheRecord.com says it's acknowledged that sometimes these don't give the desired results. Such treatments are non-invasive, painless, and usually produce results after a few visits, the article adds. But if the diet is not working, cosmetic surgery procedures such as liposuction, or a tummy tuck operation, are also available, the article notes. But it warns: "These procedures have long recovery times, so it is strongly recommended that you consult with your [doctor] to determine [whether] this is the best option for you."
