How to Get Your Belly Back

Get Your Pre-Baby Belly Back With Esteem!


Becoming a mother is the greatest gift in the world, but let’s face it, pregnancy takes a toll on your body.  Afterall, you’re carrying around a significant amount of extra weight which is necessary to help grow and nurture your little bundle of joy. Once you’ve given birth, bouncing back to your pre-pregnancy body can feel challenging, especially in and around your belly area.

Dr. Glass suggests two treatments to help you get your pre-baby belly back:

1. Ultherapy for Skin Tightening

After having a baby, the skin in your belly area is likely to sag a bit more than it did before. While this is both natural and expected, it’s probably not an aesthetic you want to stick with. There are many creams and oils that claim to help treat this issue, but the reality is: if they do work, they take a very long time to show results. Ultherapy-banner (1)

Instead of waiting endlessly for results which may never come, Esteem offers Ultherapy, a non-invasive treatment to lift your skin. Ultherapy uses sound-based medical technology to provide a ‘micro-lift’ without surgery and with zero downtime.

How does this technology work?

Ultherapy works by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the deep foundational layer below the skin, which triggers the body’s own regenerative response leading to structural lifting and tightening.  The energy works its magic by bringing your deep tissue to the optimal temperature level for collagen regeneration.

The Ultherapy procedure is simple and takes just 60 to 90 minutes in the office.

You will be able to go right back to your daily routine after the procedure. The only thing you may experience is slight swelling and redness. You’re likely to start seeing noticeable results within three months, and the final results will be obvious after six months.

2. CoolSculpting for Fat Reduction

Sagging skin may not be the only thing you want to get rid of after the birth of your new child. Many times, the extra weight you carry to help your baby grow is stubborn and hard to lose in your belly area, and shedding the extra weight after pregnancy is no easy feat.

Even if you’re able to fit in hours of exercise, and follow an impeccable diet, you may never get your old belly back.

That’s where CoolSculpting comes in. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment using Cryolipolysis to target and get rid of extra fat cells.

How does this technology work?

CoolSculpting freezes unwanted fat cells initiating cell death. Your body will naturally dispose of the dead cells in the weeks following the treatment. One reason Dr. Glass and the Esteem team love CoolSculpting is because of its ability to target a specific area. Additionally, it requires no downtime and leaves you with a more contoured body. You’ll see big changes in your belly within 12 weeks of your CoolSculpting treatment. 

Whether you gave birth recently, or the extra fat and saggy skin around your belly have been a problem for years, now is the time for change.
