Liposuction For Soon To Be Mommies

Many women find that pregnancy grants them aesthetic related depression after a time. The existence of a larger belly or swelling can cause them to feel less attractive. Exercise and a healthy diet can help with this, but these ladies still find that they gain far more weight than they would like. This is especially true when this fat-weight is deposited in the abdominal area. Abdominal liposuction, whether traditional or ultrasonic liposuction is used, may become a topic of interest for some women. However, it is important not to give in to this urge during pregnancy.

Liposuction is a medical procedure that is designed to remove small portions of fat from the body in order to sculpt it into a more pleasing shape. This procedure can be performed in several ways. However, each of the current methods uses some form of anesthesia. During pregnancy any type of general anesthesia can be potentially fatal for the mother and damaging to the growing fetus.

The danger to the fetus when general anesthesia is used will usually be based around reduced blood flow. This decreases the amount of oxygen and vital nutrients the growing child has to work with and in some extreme instances can lead to serious birth defects or death. At the very least this may cause temporary growth issues for the growing fetus. The dangers for the mother vary. However, there is an increased chance of death during a procedure that uses general anesthesia for a woman who is pregnant. This increase in mortality is generally due to reduced capacity to maintain a sufficient airway for oxygen intake and exhalation.

Abdominal liposuction during pregnancy is a bad idea in general due to the fact that both the mother and the growing child need this extra fat as an energy source. This is especially true in the latter months of pregnancy when the mother will have difficulty maintaining a high enough caloric intake for both her and the child. After pregnancy these fatty deposits are also used to help maintain the necessary energy for proper lactation. In short, a pregnant lady needs those fatty deposits to ensure the health, growth, and nourishment of her baby.

After pregnancy, the situation changes quite a bit. Once she has given birth the mother should wait two to three months before considering liposuction. The reasons for this include allowing the body to return to normal metabolic rates, taking care of the new child, and making certain there are no post pregnancy complications for the mother.

If everything seems to be in order, the mother can undergo Traditional or ultrasonic liposuction after this time with little additional risk. This period of time allows the new mother to adjust to taking care of her child, as well as to heal from the birth itself.

Liposuction is a wonderful tool for body sculpting and aesthetic improvements of the body in general. However, the health of the individual should be the foremost priority after pregnancy. Whether its a liposuction in New York, London or Canada, the risk that you’ll get into is just the same. It can take up to six months before the true results of liposuction to be revealed due to swelling, and dietary habits. Even if a lady did safely undergo liposuction during her pregnancy, the chances of it being highly effective are slim.
