Often after many pregnancies athletic women return to the gym and spend many hours trying to improve their abdominal contour. Despite numerous hours of Pilates, Yoga, or weight-training these women have a difficult time restoring their abdominal contour. In addition, while spending many hours in the gym burning calories, a significant amount of volume can be lost from the breast tissue.
It is very common for women to undergo an abdominoplasty to restore their abdominal contour as well as a concomitant breast augmentation to restore their breast volume. After these procedures, patients feel comfortable with the manner in which they fill out clothing. Typically, patients are allowed to return to unrestricted exercise within four weeks following their operation.
