Post Pregnancy can cause a lot of issues. One major issue is women’s self-image may be lower than usual due to the additional flab that came with the pregnancy. At times, it may seem that no matter how much you workout and diet nothing will eliminate the additional skin that has lost its... well... umph! An alternative to liposuction may be Body Contouring. The results from this non-surgical procedure may be just what you’re looking for.
Different than liposuction, body contouring may be the answer to curing Post Partum Abdominal Laxity or Protuberant Belly. It’s a method that reduces sagging skin and improves the shape of the underlying supported tissue.

There are three things to consider when it comes to the effect of the results:
What is the Quality of your skin?
How much fat is there?
Where are you in the aging process?
If you’re anything like my family, the elasticity of our skin isn’t one of our finer points. This is one thing that could prevent the results to be positive. It may take several applications or treatments because the collagen has deteriorated, rapidly through time. Collagen and elasticity are important for the skin to bounce back to its original shape.
Other than elasticity, determining the extent of the flange or the fat of the cell needs to be considered. It the amount of skin that has been stretched beyond repair more extensive procedures (such as liposuction or tummy tucks) may be necessary.
One more factor is where you’re at in the aging process. As we become older, the skin naturally loses it’s elasticity and it’s impossible to get that back. If you’re in your late 40’s to 50’s Body Contouring may be temporary as the skin will continue to process and grow old gracefully.
any women have been pleased with the results of body contouring after they have their babies. The best thing to do is speak to a professional or a clinician that can give you an honest opinion. This can allow you to determine if Body Contouring is right for you.
