Pregnancy can have a lasting effect on your body, particularly your stomach. You may have gained weight during your pregnancy which you are struggling to lose. Lots of women develop a mummy tummy or an apron fat on the belly or feel self conscious about loose skin and stretch marks. Quite often we find women struggle with a combination of all of the above and can have a profound effect on your confidence.
Whilst cosmetic surgery may be an option for some, for many women, surgeries such as tummy tuck or liposuction is out of the question due to costs, recovery time and the possible risks. We offer a range of non-invasive and non-surgical treatments that can help to remove belly fat, tighten loose skin and improve stretch marks. If you are struggling to lose your baby weight we also have a weight loss programme to help you lose those excess pounds.
Factors to consider
Pregnancy is a BIG THING and you shouldn’t underestimate the changes that have happened to your body during the 9 months of pregnancy. Whilst you may be keen to get rid of your post baby belly, it is also important to allow your body time to “recover” and hormones to return to normal before embarking on any aesthetic treatments or surgery. We would recommend waiting for 6 months after giving birth before having any treatment.
To regain your pre-pregnancy figure its important to look at your diet, exercise and lifestyle as well as options for cosmetic treatments.
If you have gained weight during pregnancy then following a weight loss plan should be number one on your list to get you back in shape. If you are breast feeding this can help you lose weight more quickly as your body burns more calories making milk. Breast feeding also releases hormones that shrinks your uterus, helping your stomach return to normal quicker.
Sleepless nights can play havoc with your blood sugars and ability to lose weight, so its important to get as much rest as you can even during the day.
Your abdominal muscles separate during pregnancy, called diastasis, and these can be slow to knit back together and in some cases may never reconnect. We recommend doing core strengthening exercises to encourage the abdominals back together. We don’t recommend abdominal crunches but exercise such as Pilates or Yoga are ideal to help you on your way to a flatter stomach.
