Choosing to get pregnant or finding out your pregnant can be one of the most exciting times in your life. As a bodybuilder, it can also be a little devastating to think that the body you’ve worked so hard for is going to change. And although you get to hold a little bundle of joy at the end of everything, 9-months of growth can change your body in more ways than one. If you are worried that you’ll never get your pre-baby body back, then you came to the right place.
You Can and You Will
Just how it took your body 9-months to gain all of your pregnancy weight, it may take nine months or longer to lose it all. Remember that with hard work and dedication, anything is possible— especially when it comes to your body. Just remember that it takes time and be patient with yourself. As long as you’re eating a protein-enriched diet and hitting the gym regularly, you should be back to your pre-baby body before you know it.
Consider a Tummy Tuck
Although diet and exercise are the quickest ways to get your pre-baby body back, when it comes to your skin, diet and exercise can’t necessarily help. For some women, the skin around their abdomen goes back to normal after pregnancy. For others, however, their skin loses elasticity with each pregnancy. Luckily, with a surgical procedure called a tummy tuck, we can remove excess fat and skin, and even restore your abdominal muscles to give you that pre-baby stomach you’ve been working so hard for.
When it comes to losing weight after having a baby, it can sometimes feel like you’re running into a wall. If diet and exercise alone aren’t doing the trick, then liposuction may be able to help. By surgically removing excess, stubborn fat from either your abdomen, buttocks, upper thighs, or arms, liposuction is repeatedly one of the most popular surgical procedures year after year.
