"There is no such thing as a free lunch", a saying that applies particularly to the changes a woman's body goes through during pregnancy.
Despite the joy of having children, many woman are unhappy with the" body toll" that has been paid. Their abdominal skin and muscle elastic fibers are stretched passed the point of no return, even with post delivery exercises. Breasts lose volume and droop.
Repair of the abdomen is directed toward these changes and involve removal and tightening of stretched abdominal skin, tightening of abdominal muscles to re establish a waist and sometimes liposuction to balance contour ( Abdominoplasty).
