  • Non surgical mommy makeover treatments involve CoolSculpting, fillers and skincare, cellulite reduction, vaginal rejuvenation, and scar revision.
  • These procedures provide natural looking results with minimal downtime or risks involved.
  • Benefits of non surgical mommy makeovers include targeted fat reduction without surgery and scarring, along with improved skin texture.
  • Reductions in stretch marks along with tightening of pelvic floor muscles can be achieved through these minimally invasive treatments.

What is a Mommy Makeover Procedure and Can It Be Non Surgical?

No, a mommy makeover is a personalized plastic surgery procedure designed to help women regain their pre pregnancy body. The goal of the makeover is typically to address physical effects associated with pregnancy and childbirth, including sagging breasts and bulging stomachs.

These troubling issues can often be addressed through a common procedure combination like tummy tuck, breast augmentation or lift, and liposuction.

There are non surgical alternatives for mothers who seek full rejuvenation without going under the knife. CoolSculpting is an innovative fat reduction treatment that works by freezing targeted fat cells in areas such as the abdomen or thighs via a handheld device.

Non Surgical Alternatives to a Mommy Makeover

There are options for moms who prefer going a non surgical route for enhancing their body image.

Belly Fat Removal

Non surgical belly fat removal can be a great option for women looking to slim their waistline and tone their abdominal muscles without liposuction or body contouring surgical procedures.

This option uses technology such as radio frequency, laser energy, ultrasound waves, or CoolSculpting to break down the fatty tissues under the skin surface and dissolve fat cells. These procedures tighten sagging skin but do not interfere with any underlying muscle tissue, which make them ideal for new mothers who want a non-invasive way of re-contouring postpartum bodies without surgery or lengthy recovery time.

The most popular method is known as cryolipolysis, which targets areas of excess fat by freezing them until they are naturally broken down and metabolized by the body over several weeks following treatment.

Skincare and Fillers

Skincare and fillers include botox, JUVÉDERM Voluma, Volbella, Thermi, SculpSure, CoolSulpting and liposuction to address areas of excess abdominal skin or body contouring.

They also help on the body’s natural collagen production that rejuvenate the skin while reducing wrinkles and correcting any lost volume from aging. Such treatments provide physical improvements without surgery with little to no downtime afterward.

Fillers can reduce stretch marks on the stomach caused by pregnancy or weight loss, enabling women to feel more confident about showing off their bodies again.

Cellulite Reduction of Loose Skin

As part of a non surgical mommy makeover, cellulite reduction treatments can help reduce the appearance of cellulite, tighten skin, and create smoother skin texture. Cellulite is the dimpling on the skin caused by fat deposits beneath the surface, and are often found around the hips, thighs, stomach area and buttocks.

Treatments such as BodyTite and Renuvion use radio waves to heat tissue deep below the skin’s surface, gently breaking down fat pockets while providing thermal energy to stimulate collagen production. Overall, this leaves a smoother result with improved texture and tone.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

Vaginal rejuvenation is quick, painless, and offers immediate results without requiring any surgery. It can be combined with other non surgical treatments for optimal wrinkle reduction, promoting the improvement of the appearance of the skin around the vaginal area as well as vaginal tightness.

Votiva is a treatment that uses radio frequency to heat tissue and rejuvenate collagen. This non surgical alternative can help restore the original tightness of the vagina after childbirth.

Benefits of Non Surgical Mommy Makeover

Many new moms opt for non surgical alternatives as they find them beneficial with the results they provide along with the need for minimal recovery time.

No Surgery or Scarring

Non surgical mommy makeover procedures offer huge benefits, but many patients find the complete avoidance of surgery and scarring as the number one reason why they choose this route. Patients are able to enjoy natural looking results without any downtime or putting themselves at potential risks associated with surgical options.

Since all non surgical treatments are minimally invasive techniques, there is no need to worry about potential risks such as bleeding, infection, and poor wound healing. Popular treatments that do not require surgery or scarring include CoolSculpting and Venus Legacy for fat reduction, microneedling for skin tightening, SmartSkin plus laser rejuvenation, or Sciton’s Halo pro-laser resurfacing for facial rejuvenation.

Reduced Downtime

Non surgical mommy makeovers don’t require as much recovery time as traditional, surgical treatments. Women can get back to their daily activities quicker than they would after major surgery or more invasive procedures.

Non-surgical techniques allow many women to undergo fat reduction and other treatments without needing weeks or months of downtime, often just a day or two for some treatments. This also helps keep costs down since fewer treatment sessions are required, compared with what may be needed for bigger operations such as tummy tucks and breast implants.

Natural Looking Results

Non surgical mommy makeover treatments offer a unique advantage for busy moms seeking to look and feel their best without needing extensive downtime after the procedure. Rather than opting for invasive surgical procedures such as tummy tucks and implants, non-invasive treatments can help women restore a refreshed appearance with natural results.

Treatments like minimally invasive fat reduction, skincare, fillers and chemical peels can reduce the effects of aging while providing skin tightening results. These techniques may also be used to reduce stretch marks or enhance breasts without surgery.

Targeted Fat Reduction

Non surgical mommy makeovers can help women reduce stubborn pockets of fat without having to undergo surgery. Non-invasive treatments such as radiofrequency energy devices and non surgical liposuction can selectively target areas, making them ideal for moms looking to remain active after a traditional mommy makeover.

Radio frequency energy treatments like the Genius device have been proven to safely remove up to 24 percent of abdominal fat in just 25 minutes. It is FDA approved and provides results that are both safe and effective. With this quality option, most patients may experience no downtime afterward, with only mild heat sensation during the treatment session itself.

Skin Tightening

Non surgical skin tightening technologies give women the opportunity to achieve a more youthful, natural look without having to resort to plastic surgery first.

Common non surgical skin tightening treatments include Thermage, laser skin tightening, and Ultherapy, all of which provide excellent results with minimal recovery time when compared with traditional surgical options.

These procedures work by using either laser or radio frequency energy to heat up and tighten the skin in small areas on the face, neck, decolletage, and abdomen for improved laxity of the skin. Results appear gradually over several weeks after treatment, but are often instantly noticeable in terms of firmness due to contraction of collagen fibers in the targeted area.

Enhanced Breast Lift

Undergoing a mommy makeover typically requires surgery, but modern techniques provide many non surgical procedures options for achieving beautiful results. Enhanced breast lift is an approach that can be adopted as part of a mommy makeover without the need for surgical intervention or scarring.

Procedures such as BodyTite use radio frequency energy technology to tighten the skin and restore skin laxity and breasts to their natural position, giving them a more youthful contour with long lasting results.

Choosing Between Surgical and Non Surgical Options

Deciding whether to go for surgical or non surgical options for a mommy makeover requires careful consideration, as both have their own set of risks and advantages.

On the other hand, some non surgical procedures may require multiple treatments over several months before the desired result of physical appearance can be achieved, therefore requiring patients to commit to regular visits with their surgeon or healthcare provider depending on the individual treatment plan presented.

It pays off for individuals weighing up these options to speak with an experienced advisor who specializes in both types of treatment and receive guidance about what would fit best with your goals and lifestyle needs.
