Did pregnancy leave you with prune-like paunch?
Ask any mother, and she’ll tell you that your body goes through all kinds of changes while you’re pregnant. Once you’ve given birth,many of those changes to are there to stay whether you like it or not.
For most women these changes center around the abdominal area. Your skin expands and stretches to accommodate your baby during pregnancy which can lead to excess drooping skin on your stomach. The muscles inside your abdominal may also become loose and lax due to pregnancy, which further exacerbates that saggy look.
Some women get lucky, and they experience only minimal stretching from pregnancy which they can counter with a healthy lifestyle (Giselle anyone?). The majority of women, however, don’t get off so easily and for them, no amount of fresh vegetables and exercise will restore their tummy to what it was before they had children.
When weight loss and toning aren’t enough to banish that bulge you may consider plastic surgery. Everyone knows that liposuction and tummy tucks work wonders for smoothing your stomach, but it can be confusing to decide which one is the right choice.
Here is a quick guide to when to suck it up and when to tuck it up. Read on for more about liposuction vs tummy tucks for smoothing your post-baby bump!
As you might have expected, this is somewhat of a trick question 🙂

Take a look at this racy pic from Lady Gaga’s Esquire Mag shoot. Are we looking at some little saddle bags on the new Queen of Pop?
She’s got great legs and a great body, but a little touch-up with liposuction on her outer thighs and below her butt would give her a lot of gain for very little pain! A procedure like this could be done in under an hour, and get her back on stage to fascinate the rest of the planet in no time.
What do you think? Does she need it?

You’ve heard it a million times. “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” Well, here’s one more example why this rule is still a good one to follow. The idea of melting fat away with an injection has been sweeping the country for the past several years as companies like LipoNOW and AestheticMD continue to aggressively market the only “painless” way to lose inches. Lipodissolve or lipo dud?
You haven’t eaten carbs in over a month… you climb the Empire State Building on the Stairmaster every day… you’ve tried every diet pill imaginable… but you just can’t get rid of that stubborn “erf”. The Exercise Resistant Fat that sticks to your hips like frosting on a Cinnabon! The saddle bags that you carry every day even though you don’t own a horse. The pudge that just won’t budge.
