A woman’s body can be significantly altered by pregnancy and childbirth. During the nine months of pregnancy, the abdomen stretches to accommodate the growing child, and many women gain weight –nature’s way of ensuring the baby will have adequate resources to grow. Combine that with changes to the breasts in preparation for and during breastfeeding, and many mothers are left with a drastically different figure, which can linger or be permanently altered.
Many women struggle to get their “pre-pregnancy body” back, and this could be impossible without help. Our Mommy Makeover package combines the benefits of four separate treatments to target some of the most common complaints of women who suffered serious changes in appearance after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
Baby weight can be hard to shake, and some stubborn fat deposits are not affected by lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise. Cosmetic interventions to remove excess fat, such as liposuction and laser treatments, are invasive procedures that require time during which to recover. These technologies are not sophisticated enough to target fat cells alone, so surrounding, healthy tissue is also affected by the treatments. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, takes advantages of the fact that fat has a higher freezing point than other cells, allowing it to specifically target them while leaving other tissues intact. Once frozen, fat melts away and is naturally shed by the body, without harming healthy cells, leaving no scarring, bruising, and requiring no downtime.
Even for women who are satisfied with the body shape and contour, cellulite can make it difficult to feel confident about hips, thighs, or backside. Embarrassment about the dimpled, lumpy texture of the skin causes many women to feel uncomfortable in a bathing suit or other revealing clothing. Cellutone treats cellulite with the use of therapeutic vibrations to increase blood flow to the affected area, which accelerates lymphatic drainage, decreasing the presence of unwanted fat cells. Cellutone is a noninvasive, pain-free procedure, performed in several sessions.
Loose, drooping skin and folds are all too often a reality of life after bearing children. BTL Exilis Ultra is a groundbreaking technology that combines two common therapeutic options – ultrasound waves and radiofrequency emissions – to maximize results. The foundation of the treatment is heat, and the combination of the two techniques allows therapeutic temperatures to be reached much sooner. Exilis uses heat to stimulate and accelerate the body’s natural processes for waste removal and the regeneration of damaged tissues, resulting in younger-looking, tighter skin.
While the abdomen stretches to accommodate the growing baby during pregnancy, giving birth is the equivalent of undergoing dramatic weight loss in a matter of hours. The skin has been stretched well beyond its normal proportions, and will takes some time to readjust. Even when the skin is shrunk back to its usual size, many women have unsightly, visible stretch marks.
For red, visible stretch marks, Vbeam laser therapy is an effective treatment option that works by heating the blood pathways, causing them to constrict, reducing red in the skin. Other stretchmarks may benefit from Fraxel Dual, which rejuvenates skin for a younger, smoother appearance by triggering the body’s natural production of collagen.
