Seeing the changes your body goes through during pregnancy to carry life is truly incredible. However, pregnancy can be quite demanding with the physical changes your body goes through while pregnant. If stubborn areas of fat, stretch marks and struggling to fit back into your skinny jeans have you dreaming about getting your pre-baby body back, we’re here to help.
You don’t need to undergo surgery or an extensive “mommy makeover” to get your body back after having a baby. With just a few minimally invasive treatments, you will be feeling like your pre-baby self in no time.
Getting Your Body Back
Even if you had good luck with losing the baby weight, you might still be struggling with stubborn areas of fat. Working out regularly and eating a healthy diet can help your body bounce back, but if your extra efforts aren’t banishing the post-pregnancy fat, CoolSculpting will.
CoolSculpting is ideal for women who have a small amount of unwanted fat, and a single session can remove up to 20% of the fatty tissue in your abdomen.
CoolSculpting works by freezing fat cells and treatments focus on one location at a time allowing you to target just your abdomen or other problem areas. The frigid temperature destroys the fat cells, leaving them to be flushed out of your body over the next few months.
Beating the Post-Baby Bulge
A single session of CoolSculpting typically takes an hour and doesn’t involve much downtime after treatment. In short, you can have CoolSculpting pretty much anywhere you’ve spotted stubborn fat pockets that you’d like to eliminate.
Some of the most popular treatment areas are:
- Love handles
- Banana rolls
- Upper arms
- The bulge under the bra strap
CoolSculpting Is Ideal For Mothers Who…
- Have just a small amount of unwanted fat in the stomach area
- Are six months postpartum or more
- Are fully recovered from pregnancy and childbirth
- Are at or near their ideal weight
One additional benefit of CoolSculpting, aside from proven results with limited downtime, is that it can be repeated if needed. A woman doesn’t need to wait until after she’s finished having children before treatment. CoolSculpting can be repeated for a more significant reduction in fat, or a few more years down the road after another baby comes along.
Is It Too Soon For Postpartum CoolSculpting?
Generally, it’s best to wait for six months postpartum before opting for any cosmetic procedure, and CoolSculpting is no different. Although CoolSculpting is non-surgical, it’s recommended to let yourself fully recover from pregnancy and childbirth before making any more changes.
Is CoolSculpting Safe While Breastfeeding?
CoolSculpting is a safe, non-invasive procedure, but it should not be performed during breastfeeding. During CoolSculpting, the fat cells in the treated area are subject to permanent damage and eventually die. The cells are absorbed and removed by the body entirely within two to three months. It is during this early period that we would like to avoid having these inflammatory factors in circulation and potentially reach your breast milk. As soon as you finish breastfeeding, it will be safe for you to have CoolSculpting performed to achieve the shape you desire.
Taking Back Your Body
Most people are good CoolSculpting candidates, as long as they’re in good general health and understand that it is to compliment a healthy lifestyle, not a replacement for one. Maintaining your weight will help you keep your new shape. Schedule your complimentary consultation appointment with Laser Aesthetic Center today and give your post-baby body a boost.
