What Exactly Is a Mommy Makeover?

mommy makeover, weight loss, surgery

Even though it’s the most natural thing in the world, pregnancy takes a major toll on a woman’s body. Becoming a mother is one of the most wonderful experiences you can have. But, after nine months of pregnancy and, should you choose to do so, the time spent breastfeeding, you may not even recognize your own body anymore.

Your little bundle of joy brings stretch marks, hormonal surges, and a sometimes-significant weight gain. Your pregnancy weight is a result of the additional calories you take in to support a growing baby. Because hormones are involved, your weight shifts and blossoms in some specific areas, such as your waist, your thighs, and even your upper arms. No matter how much you cut back on calories or work out, it can seem impossible to reduce these deposits of fat.

In recent years, many cosmetic surgeons have offered procedures designed to eliminate the unsightly ravages of pregnancy. Tummy tucks, breast augmentation, liposuction, and other invasive surgeries that transform your “mommy body” into a younger, firmer, more slender-looking version can be extremely costly in both time and money.

The Ob-Gyn Center provides noninvasive fat loss with the cutting-edge truSculpt® iD. This nonsurgical mommy makeover can help regain your pre-pregnancy body with super-fast treatments and no downtime.

Why surgery isn’t the best option for a new mom

Invasive surgery, no matter how minor, comes with a certain amount of risk and recovery time that a new mom, especially, probably isn’t eager to face. Your time is precious, and recovery from an invasive cosmetic procedure can take weeks or even months.

Surgical procedures also mean enduring pain and taking medication, which means you may need help with child care. In other words, the invasive mommy makeover can disrupt your family life quite a bit.

How to transform your mommy body without surgery

Enter truSculpt iD. It uses radiofrequency energy to target those stubborn areas of fat that no amount of diet and exercise can eliminate. Noninvasive truSculpt iD can be customized to address your target areas for an amazing mommy makeover.

Through a handheld device, truSculpt iD delivers radiofrequency energy below the surface of your skin, targeting those fat cells that just won’t let go and liquefying them. Over the next several weeks, your body eliminates these cells naturally as waste. In just one 15-minute session, up to 24% of the fat cells in the treatment area are destroyed, for good — without discomfort or damage to your skin.

Because the truSculpt iD device can easily target several treatment areas, your customized procedures can address many different stubborn fat pockets other procedures can’t. These include your upper arms, lower body, abdominal area, and other problem areas that cause you concern.

In addition to removing fat for good, another benefit of using truSculpt iD for your mommy makeover is a tightening effect. Raising the temperature of the cells below the surface of your skin also causes collagen production to increase. Because of the increased collagen, skin made slack by pregnancy weight gain becomes more resilient after your truSculpt iD treatment.

Scheduling your mommy makeover

It’s best to wait six months after you cease breastfeeding, as your body adjusts, before scheduling your mommy makeover. Because truSculpt iD is noninvasive, there’s no downtime, so you can get back to your life, including chasing your little one, immediately.

At The Ob-Gyn Center, we understand the toll pregnancy takes on your body. That’s why we are proud to offer new moms in and around the Las Vegas area a nonsurgical mommy makeover to achieve the look they desire. Contact us by phone or online to schedule a consultation today.
