Body Contouring and Pregnancy


Becoming a mom does not mean you have to sacrifice looking and feeling your best. If you’d like a slim, toned figure after pregnancy, consider body contouring procedures. With tummy tucks, liposuction, fat grafting, arm lifts, thigh lifts, and more, you can enjoy a figure that could look even better than it did prior to pregnancy.

Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau at The Landings Surgical Centre, serving Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island, are committed to helping you achieve a beautiful, confident figure. These board-certified doctors have over 25 years of experience treating post-pregnancy patients with body contouring and have a fantastic reputation for delivering excellent results.

Post-Pregnancy Contouring

Becoming a new mom is a wonderful accomplishment. However, it is a grueling process for the body. You may notice stretched skin, lax muscles, scarring, and other physical signs that you carried a growing baby for months, then gave birth. This should be the happiest time of your life, but it’s hard to feel joyful when you dislike the way you look.

Tummy Tuck
One of the most common procedures women choose after pregnancy is a tummy tuck. This treatment is designed to eliminate stretch marks and excess fat while tightening loose skin. It creates a slimmer, more attractive profile. There are a variety of techniques available to complete this procedure, and it can easily be combined with liposuction.

Liposuction is another common post-pregnancy procedure. It is one of the most versatile cosmetic treatments. It is used to remove fatty deposits all over the body. We utilize Vaser ultrasonic liposuction as it allows us to effectively liquefy and remove even dense fat deposits while reducing bruising risk and overall healing time.

Lift Procedures
During pregnancy, many mothers gain excess weight in areas other than their bellies. After the baby is born, that fat either stays in place or gets depleted, leaving skin saggy. Of course, liposuction will remove excess fat. Lifts, however, address saggy skin.

We offer lifts for targeted areas, such as the arms, butt, and thighs. These procedures remove skin that’s lost its elasticity. The result is a more sculpted, toned figure.

Mommy Makeover
Another common procedure is the mommy makeover. Pregnancy can take a toll on your body’s appearance. The mommy makeover combines common cosmetic procedures that are unique to your needs.

Popular treatments included in the mommy makeover are:

Tummy tuck
Breast surgery
Fat grafting
Arm lifts
Thigh lifts
Full-body lifts
While these may not be directly correlated to post-pregnancy body contouring, they are still useful treatments to achieve your goals.
