What you should know about a post pregnancy belly

It takes time for your body to get back into its original shape after a pregnancy. You had a baby inside  you so this is completely normal. However, your mid-section might take longer to retain its firm tone. It will be rounder and squishier than before and the decrease will be slow and steady. Here are a couple of things you should know about this state:

  • The stomach swells during a pregnancy but that is mostly the skin retaining more water than usual. You might experience an increase in body fat stores as well.
  • Cellulite will appear in most areas.
  • The belly area will increase in elasticity and will not be as firm as before.
  • Your hormones will oscillate which can reduce the size of the stomach but not as much as you might expect.
  • You might start eating more than normal, especially if you are sleep deprived. This will add to the weight on your belly and can also prevent you from losing post belly fat.

Patience is key to losing that belly fat the natural way with diet control and exercise but it can be difficult to do for some women. The rate at which you can lose those inches depend on a number of factors such as:

  • Your shape and size pre pregnancy.
  • How much weight you gained during your pregnancy
  • Whether you have an active lifestyle or not.
  • Your genes.

 

If you have hormonal issues or cannot find time to exercise, why not go for a Mommy Tuck instead? This is just a tummy tuck that can help you lose that belly fat and post pregnancy belly completely. Dr Poulos is an expert at the procedure and will advise you on post and pre care treatment as well.
