Isn’t the body just amazing?!
Often after pregnancy, our stomachs are left with loose skin, stubborn fat and stretch marks, which can leave us feeling deflated. Our confidence goes out of the window and as if we hadn’t got enough to do, we feel a pressure to start to exercise and get back to our ‘normal’ selves.
We’re bombarded with photos in the media of celebrities walking around in their size 8 jeans, just weeks after giving birth but in reality, over 50% of new mothers are left feeling unhappy with their body after giving birth.
A healthy diet, keeping hydrated and regular exercise is always key. Core work and abdominal exercises are also important to help strengthen the abdominal muscles after pregnancy. You should consult with a personal trainer for advice on the correct exercises to help strengthen your abdominals post-pregnancy.
We have lots of women come to us with different post-pregnancy body concerns who want our help to help remove the stubborn fat, loose skin and stretch marks.
You’ll be glad to know that there ARE a wide range of treatments that can help tackle each concern individually or we can create a bespoke treatment plan for you.
So, how can you get rid of your mummy tummy?
1. Stretch Mark Treatment
If you are suffering with stretch marks post-pregnancy we recommend our micro-needling treatment to help visibly reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Micro-needling is a painless procedure that creates thousands of micro-perforations in the skin using a special pen-like device.
This increases the production of collagen by the natural repair process in the body. The treatment also combines a cocktail of serums tailored to specifically treat stretchmarks which absorb deeper into the skin, for optimum results.
2. Non-Surgical Fat Reduction
You’re not alone! Post-pregnancy, most women struggle to budge stubborn areas of fat.
With Our 3D Lipo Fat Freezing and Ultrasound Cavitation treatments we can selectively target those troublesome areas of fat. The treatments break down and destroy fat cells to help reduce body fat in the selected area.
The treatments are completely non-invasive, safe and effective. They are a fraction of the cost of cosmetic surgery, making this treatment a real alternative to liposuction.
3. Skin Tightening
We have many clients looking to tighten their wobbly mummy tummy post-pregnancy.
If you are looking to achieve a firmer, tighter tummy our Radio Frequency treatment could be the perfect treatment for you!
Radiofrequency encourages the body’s own production of collagen which could result in the skin appearing tighter and firmer whilst smoothing the area– perfect for restoring the tummy you once had.
BONUS: Weight Loss after Pregnancy
We understand how hard it is to get back on track with your diet after pregnancy. You may have “eaten for two” during pregnancy, and now with late-night feeds plus lack of sleep, it can be a real challenge to lose the excess baby weight.
The Body Clinic could help you achieve your weight loss goals by providing you with a clinically proven, nutritionally balanced weight loss programme, The Cambridge Weight Plan. During your weight loss, you will receive our expert one to one support on a weekly basis.
The Cambridge Weight Plan combines nutritious meal replacement products packed full of vitamins and minerals along with healthy food. With 5 different weight loss programmes, ranging from a total meal replacement option to meal replacements with food there is a programme to suit everyone.
