Giving Birth A reproductive function, which can be described as incredible and miraculous, has been bestowed on the woman by the Holy God, for the purpose of maintaining the lineage of human beings. Fertility and childbearing; While it provides the woman with the title of motherhood, which is very expensive, on the other hand, it causes some permanent problems in the woman’s body. Especially recurrent and frequent pregnancies wear out the female body.
What are the effects on the 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 situation occurs simultaneously as breast enlargement. With the effect of the oxytocin hormone, the breast gains the ability to secrete and expel the milk produced quickly after birth. The most valuable stimulant of the oxytocin hormone is the ‘breastfeeding’ movement. The breastfeeding process varies from mother to mother. However, breastfeeding for the first 6 months is strongly recommended in terms of 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- Relaxation and sagging (ptosis), These negative changes on the breast, Breast Reduction (reduction), Breast Enlargement (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 less activity during pregnancy are the most valuable factors that increase sagging.
At this point, it is necessary to mention the effect of cesarean section or normal delivery on the abdominal wall. In a normal birth movement; The uterus, which has expanded up to 40 times its own volume, contracts severely under the influence of the hormone oxytocin, pushing the baby outwards without fail. After the birth, this contraction action continues for a while and the uterus is restored to its original state. Birth by cesarean section does not allow the uterus to contract and collect itself under the influence of oxytocin. In addition, the fact that the abdominal muscles are cut directly limits the effective action of the mother for a while. 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), Small 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 valuable complaint in these women is vaginal enlargement, vaginal enlargement; While reducing the quality of sexual intercourse, it can lead to significant incompatibility and problems between partners. However, deterioration in the image of the female genital organ and sagging of the inner and outer lips are other permanent changes.
