Although having a baby is an incredible experience, it can cause some unwelcome changes to a woman’s body. Women that are unhappy with these changes often undergo a mommy makeover in an effort to reclaim their pre-baby body. While surgery is a popular option, it’s also possible to do a non-surgical CoolSculpting mommy makeover.
Why a Non-Surgical Mommy Makeover?
In the past, surgery was the only option available for women that wanted to get their body back after pregnancy and childbirth. A mommy makeover typically includes a breast lift/breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction.
As in recent years there has been a shift towards non-surgical, many moms can’t afford lengthy downtime. Non-surgical procedures can also be done a lot sooner after childbirth, this is another reason why more women are going this route.
CoolSculpting Mommy Makeover
CoolSculpting is an effective non-surgical body contouring solution that can get rid of unwanted fat bulges, and produce subtle results. The procedure can be done in one hour, and does not require any downtime.
CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling technology, to reduce pockets of unwanted fat on various parts of the body, below the chin, as well as on the tummy, hips, and thighs.
CoolSculpting is a great way to flatten the abdomen and shrink love handles. One treatment with CoolSculpting can reduce unwanted fat by up to 20%. After treatment targeted fat cells are naturally eliminated by the body.
How it Works
For a CoolSculpting mommy makeover, the applicator targets fat below the surface. Without affecting the surface of the skin or surrounding tissue. The extreme cold causes the fat cells to crystallize and die, which is then eliminated by the body. The decrease in the number of fat cells will result in a measurable reduction in the fat layer, the treated area.
Benefits of a CoolSculpting Mommy Makeover
- CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive, so that means there are no scalpels, incisions, or scars, and best of all, no downtime.
- There is less risk of complications with CoolSculpting when compared to liposuction, and other more invasive body contouring techniques.
- CoolSculpting has proven to be very effective for reducing localized deposits of fat.
- CoolSculpting is customizable. The procedure can be customized to deal with the specific areas of concern in order to achieve optimal transformation.
What to Expect
Side effects are minimal with CoolSculpting. Patients may experience some swelling, numbness, and tenderness after treatment, but this usually only lasts for a few days.
Most patients will see at least 20% fat reduction in the treated areas. Some improvement can be observed as early as 3 weeks after treatment, but full results can be seen within 2-3 months. The results will last as long as patients adhere to a healthy lifestyle, and maintain their weight.
A mommy makeover is a great way to boost your self-confidence and improve your life.
