Board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Brian K. Reedy and Dr. Scott C. Lindsay spend their days helping a diverse set of patients achieve their cosmetic goals—and a large portion of these are mothers hoping to reclaim their bodies after pregnancy and childbirth.
The customized set of procedures and treatments geared toward improving post-baby trouble areas moms have is referred to as a “mommy makeover.” And while plastic surgery procedures are often part of a classic mommy makeover, there’s also less invasive alternatives. Luckily for those who want to avoid the cost and downtime of surgery, these non-surgical treatments have come a long way!
Check out their guide to minimally invasive treatments that safely and effectively help you smooth out post-pregnancy bumps and lumps:
Kicking Cellulite to the Curb
Unfortunately, most women experience the dreaded “cottage cheese” skin at some point in their lives—and many pregnant mothers see an increase in cellulite during pregnancy that can be difficult to get rid of for years after. There are plenty of creams and elixirs claiming to immediately rid you of cellulite and smooth out your skin, but cellulite is notoriously difficult to treat and, unfortunately, most of these topical products just don’t work. That’s where Cellulaze™ comes in.
Cellulaze is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted treatment that addresses the root cause of cellulite: weakened structures under your skin that allow pockets of localized fat to show. Cellulaze works by improving the thickness of your skin for a smoother look. The best part? Results start showing immediately and improve over the course of a few months.
Sculpting a Better Body Contour
One of the most frustrating things after pregnancy is localized pockets of fat that just won’t budge with diet and exercise. Typically, moms experience stubborn bulges on the lower abdomen, thighs, and hips—even when they’re doing everything right and have gotten close to their pre-baby weight.
Did you know that permanent fat reduction is possible without going under the knife? CoolSculpting® is a totally non-surgical fat reduction treatment that requires no surgery, needles, or downtime. It works by cooling your fat cells to the point that they break down and are naturally eliminated by your body over the course of about three months. This means you’ll gradually shed excess fat and avoid looking like you’ve had “work done.” It’s important to note that this treatment is best for specific problem areas of fat and will not produce great results for those hoping to shed a larger amount of extra weight.
Saying “So Long” to Sagging Skin
Perhaps the most common concern for mothers after pregnancy is the resulting loose or sagging skin. Traditionally, the only way to get a firmer, smoother look was to have a lifting procedure, such as a tummy tuck. Now, however, we can offer patients a way to tighten the skin, improve cellulite, and even smooth out small areas of fat with a safe, comfortable treatment!
Venus Legacy® is a radio frequency device that creates a heat matrix over your skin to stimulate your body’s natural healing response. This causes your skin to retract and increases blood circulation to the area, noticeably tightening and smoothing out the treated area. We typically recommend between 6 – 10 treatments for the most dramatic results, but don’t worry—the process feels similar to a hot stone massage, and you can get back to your regular life right away!
