Liposuction after pregnancy: Los Angeles plastic surgery for unwanted pregnancy fat - Santa Monica plastic surgeon

After pregnancy and childbirth, many women have unwanted fat along the abdomen and hips. Despite weight loss, diet, and exercise, this unwanted pregnancy fat does not seem to disappear easily.  Pregnancy fat is usually associated with hormone-dependent fat deposition in genetically-determined areas such as the lower abdomen, flanks, hips, and thighs.  Despite post pregnancy weight loss, the weight does not seem to disappear as easily as it did prior to pregnancy.  This may be due to a change in caloric metabolism and is likely under the influence of the hormones estrogen and progesterone.

 

For these unwanted areas of pregnancy fat, patients are advised to resume their normal course of diet and exercise until they reach a plateau phase where the fat deposits do not appear to decrease.  The most effective treatment for pregnancy fat is a technique known as liposuction.  Liposuction can be used to aspirate pockets of unwanted fat in the body without invasive surgery, anesthesia or downtime.
