Giving Birth God Almighty has given women the reproductive function, which can be described as incredible and miraculous, in order to continue the lineage of human beings. Fertility and procreation; While providing the woman with the very valuable title of motherhood, on the other hand, it causes some permanent problems in the female body. Especially recurrent and frequent pregnancies wear out the female body.
What are the Effects on Breasts?
Both during pregnancy and after childbirth, breast tissue is under the influence of different hormonal elevations. During pregnancy, the breast is prepared for breastfeeding with growth hormones, estrogen and prolactin hormones. The mammary glands enlarge and mature. This condition occurs simultaneously as breast enlargement. Immediately after birth, with the effect of the hormone oxytocin, the breast gains the ability to secrete and expel the milk it produces. The most important stimulant of the oxytocin hormone is the act of ‘breastfeeding’. The breastfeeding process varies from mother to mother. However, breastfeeding for the first 6 months is strongly recommended for child health.
The effects of breastfeeding on the breast vary depending on the duration of breastfeeding as well as hormonal changes. With the end of my breastfeeding period, hormonal changes return to normal. Three types of changes can be seen in the breasts after breastfeeding. 1- Growth (Hypertrophy), 2- Shrinkage, extinction (Atrophy, involution), 3- Loosening and sagging (ptosis), These negative changes on the breast, Breast Reduction (reduction), Breast Augmentation (Augmentation) or Breast Lift (Mastopexy) ) and can be corrected with combinations of these surgeries. These operations should be performed 6 months after the cessation of breastfeeding.
What are the Effects of Giving Birth on the Abdominal Wall?
Especially recurrent pregnancies cause expansion and permanent sagging of the abdominal wall. Uncontrolled weight gain during pregnancy and being less active during this process are the most important factors that increase sagging.
At this point, it is necessary to mention the effect of cesarean or normal birth on the abdominal wall. In a normal labor; The uterus, which has expanded up to 40 times its own volume, contracts violently with the effect of the hormone oxytocin, pushing the baby outward. After the birth, this contraction action continues for a while and the uterus is restored to its original state. Birth by cesarean does not allow the uterus to contract and collect itself with the effect of oxytocin. In addition, the fact that the abdominal muscles are cut directly limits the active action of the mother for a certain period of time. For this reason, it should be expected that looseness and sagging in the lower abdomen will be more after cesarean section.
These negative changes in the abdomen can be corrected with Fat Suction (liposuction), Mini and Full Abdominoplasty surgeries.
What are the Effects of Giving Birth on Genital Organs?
Negative effects on the genital organs are more common in women who have given birth vaginally and more than once. The most important complaint in these women is vaginal enlargement, vaginal enlargement; While reducing the quality of sexual intercourse, it can lead to serious incompatibility and problems between spouses. However, deterioration in the appearance of the female genital organ and sagging of the inner and outer lips are other permanent changes.
