Lasermed Skin and Vein Clinic Can Help You Get Your Pre-Baby Body Back with UltraShape and Velashape III Body Contouring Treatments

Any mom knows that having a child changes your life. A unique set of physical and emotional challenges are faced following a pregnancy and childbirth. In a recent M/A/R/C Research Survey, a sampling of 500 U.S. women who had a child within the last eight years showed

•   How these women felt about their body post-pregnancy;

•   What parts of their body are of most concern;

•   What causes these body image concerns and lifestyle changes these women have made since having their child.

LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic, located in Johns Creek on Old Alabama Rd., offers a number of services to help post baby moms feel and look more confident.

Unanticipated Body Changes

Nearly every woman who has had a child agrees that their body has been transformed to some degree, and the majority feel that the post-baby differences were not positive ones. Although doctors cite an average weight gain of about 30 pounds as typical during pregnancy, at least half of the women who have experienced having a child say they knew that potential for weight gain but were unprepared for the kinds of changes that actually occurred to their bodies, particularly after the child was born.

Overwhelmingly, a flabby stomach, referred to as “jelly belly”, was the primary post baby concern, exacerbated with stretch marks and cellulite. Apparently, jelly belly is a condition thought about on a daily basis, although  for many thinking about it was the only action taken. Oversized sweaters and sweatshirts became a staple wardrobe item to cover it up. Bikinis became a relic of the past – only 10% risked bikini exposure.

Post Baby Body Woes

Overall, almost three-quarters of new moms reported they did not feel physically attractive after having their baby, and most were either somewhat or very unhappy with their body. Of those women who were able to lose some or all of their pregnancy weight, close to 90% lamented they could not recover their pre-baby stomach, which was one of the features they liked best before pregnancy. In order to reach their ideal shape, on average it was reported that it would take losing two clothing sizes. The average weight women report wanting to lose was 36 pounds, although 20% felt a weight loss of between 11 and 20 pounds would put them at a pre-baby figure. However, there appear to be three main obstacles to body improvement: staying motivated; having energy; and finding the time to exercise.

UltraShape and Velashape III to the Rescue!

LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic has an answer to jelly belly despair with two body contouring procedures targeted at reduction of fat cells and skin tightening. These treatments are not a substitute for weight loss, but if you have reached a healthy weight and just can’t seem to lose that jiggle, you are potentially a great candidate for body contouring.  UltraShape can help you to lose unwanted fat cells in the belly region without surgery or pain, without incisions, anesthesia, or post-procedure downtime. Velashape III helps reduce the appearance of unsightly cellulite while simultaneously tightening skin laxity. Lasermed Skin and Vein Clinic has determined Velashape III™ to be a perfect complement to the fat reduction capabilities of UltraShape, enhancing the body contours of those “problem areas” through skin tightening and smoothing of underlying structural skin tissues. It is particularly effective after losing weight, or childbirth, where skin may be loose and drooping, allowing you to enjoy the body you once had pre-children. Contact LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic, serving the communities of Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, Cumming, Suwanee, Roswell and Johns Creek, as well as patients from all over the Atlanta Metro area and beyond, and schedule a consultation with Dr. Chapman to get your post-baby self in pre-baby shape! It’s one less thing to think about.
