CoolSculpting After Pregnancy
- Posted on: Sep 7 2016
Pregnancy can wreak havoc on a woman’s body— causing you to gain weight and expand in places you didn’t even know possible. If you recently had a baby and trying to get rid of that extra baby weight but are having a hard time doing so, it might be time to consider CoolSculpting.
Is CoolSculpting Safe After Pregnancy?
Depending on whether or not you are breastfeeding, and depending on what your gynecologist says, CoolSculpting should be more than safe to do after pregnancy. However, it is recommended that you wait at least 3-4 months after delivering your baby to help your body get back to a more normal size— that way you can get the results that you want without having your weight fluctuate too much.
What if I want to have another baby?
It is really your choice whether you prefer to have CoolSculpting before or after you are done with pregnancies.
What is recovery time like?
When you have a new baby, there is virtually no time to spare to recovery from any sort of surgery. Luckily, because CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure, it requires no downtime or recovery time. In fact, immediately following your procedure, you can get back to doing your normal routine of things.
What are results like?
Results of CoolSculpting are similar to that of Liposuction, but they are less aggressive. If you want your before mom body back in an easy and effective way, CoolSculpting may be for you. Patients start to see noticeable results around 3 weeks after treatment and will see the full results 3 months after treatment. One consideration after pregnancy is skin elasticity. CoolSculpting has been shown to result in mild to no skin tightening and a tummy tuck may be necessary for the best results in some patients. Fortunately Dr. York Yates is also and expert in tummy tuck surgery.
