Mummy Makeover Information

Breast Changes after Pregnancy


There are many hormonal changes during pregnancy and these have an effect on the breast shape.  You will normally experience swelling of the breasts during pregnancy and after childbirth.  Breastfeeding will also produce swelling of the breasts as they fill with milk.  Once everything has settled, there will often be loss of volume from the breasts especially the upper part of the breast.  The breasts will also droop afterwards but the amount of drooping will vary from patient to patient.

Tummy Changes after Childbearing

During pregnancy the growing baby will stretch the tummy skin and muscles.  The size of the baby will have an impact on the amount of stretching.  It is common for the tummy muscles that produce the six pack (rectus muscles) to widen and for there to be a gap.  This is called diastasis of the recti or divarication.  This can be widened if you have multiple pregnancies or big babies.  The skin will also stretch and this can procedure striae, more commonly called stretch marks.  When the baby is born, the skin will shrink and retract.  In some, the skin may still be a little loose particularly at the bottom of the tummy.  This looseness can be difficult to get rid of by exercise alone and may require surgery to remove the excess loose skin.
