Coolsculpting After Pregnancy

FL Med Spa Explains What You Need to Know About CoolSculpting® After Pregnancy

Having a baby can bring incredible joy to new mothers, but in the months after childbirth, stretch marks, loose stomach muscles, and stubborn fat can affect a mother’s positive body image. After giving birth, women often struggle to lose the “baby weight” and restore the look and shape of their pre-pregnancy bodies, despite concerted diet and exercise efforts.

Thus, many postpartum mothers in the Naples, Florida, area seek a solution at Tru Glō Medspa. As a “medical” spa, our staff are attuned to the overall health of our clients and understand the trauma pregnancy and childbirth cause a woman’s body. Postpartum recovery is a complex natural process that involves tissue healing, bodily system restoration, and hormone rebalancing. Medical professionals generally advise new mothers to avoid any medical procedures—invasive or not—that might compromise their natural postpartum recovery.

CoolSculpting® Emerging as Effective Treatment for Stubborn Fat

In recent years, CoolSculpting® has emerged as an effective non-invasive treatment for reducing stubborn fat. Technically known as Cryolipolosis (or fat freezing), the procedure has also proven successful at helping new mothers lose pregnancy-related weight gains and tighten abdominal skin. CoolSculpting® sessions only take an hour or so and require no downtime, which means that new moms can quickly return their attention to the care of their new baby.

Of course, new mothers need to wait for the natural recovery of postpartum to kick in before turning to CoolSculpting®. The hormone rebalancing that occurs after pregnancy may help some women lose weight naturally, and CoolSculpting® provides the best results once their weight has stabilized. Tru Glō Medspa has all the skinny on safe and effective CoolSculpting® treatment for new mothers, so read on to learn more.

Is CoolSculpting Safe After Pregnancy and Childbirth?

Safety is the primary concern raised by new mothers who consult with our Naples medical spa about the benefits of CoolSculpting®. The treatment is FDA approved and has a limited side-effect profile. The primary concern with using the treatment with new mothers is to ensure that it does not impact the natural postpartum recovery.

Tru Glō Medspa generally advises new mothers to wait three to six months after giving birth before undergoing CoolSculpting®. Breastfeeding mothers are advised to wait from three to six months after stopping before getting the treatment. Not only does breastfeeding cause an extended hormonal shifting of postpartum recovery, but researchers have not studied whether CoolSculpting® has any effects on breast milk. To ensure new mother safety, patients consult with one of our medical professionals before undergoing CoolSculpting® treatment.

What About Women Who Have Had a C-Section?

C-section scars and any other lower-body scarring do not limit a woman’s ability to have CoolSculpting® because the treatment is customized for each woman’s distinct body. CoolSculpting’s® hand-held application device can be navigated around scarring in ways that can still target underlying fat deposits. Note that CoolSculpting’s® ability to reduce the size of the C-Section pooch varies by women and depends on factors relating to its internal development within the abdomen.

What Kind of Results Can New Mothers Expect?

CoolSculpting’s® technology has been clinically proven to eliminate fat cells by killing them by freezing. Once destroyed, your body naturally removes the crystallized cells in the weeks and months after the procedure. In various clinical studies, patients reported average reductions in body fat of between 21.5% to 43%, and almost 80% of patients reported satisfaction with the results. More than 7 million patients have undergone CoolSculpting® in 80 countries.

Note that additional pregnancies will likely produce new stubborn fat deposits, though subsequent treatments can help address these, too. To maintain the best CoolSculpting® results, patients are encouraged to exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet.

Highly Recommend

Highly recommend TruGlo MedSpa for all laser aesthetics. Stacy Blake, over 30yrs of experience and beautiful herself, transformed my face with just one HALO treatment($1600) as seen in my before and after pictures below. Dr Gardner(best plastic surgeon in all of South Florida) owns TruGlo MedSpa.

I had consultations with all of the top doctors in South Florida; Naples, Coral Gables, Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Jupiter. I decided to go with Dr Gardner & TruGlo MedSpa. Afterwards I went back to the same top plastic surgeons who complimented Gardner’s work.

Summer H

Definitely 5 star!

Tru Glo Medspa is top notch. The office is beautiful with calm aura. Gretchen is always so helpful and knowledgeable. Stacey Blake, who has performed multiple treatments on my face from filler, Botox, Dysport, BBL and laser peels, is just amazing. She is so gentle handed and always making sure you are okay during procedures. She has even went the extra mile to assist me addressing a skin issue which I didn’t even mentioned because I didn’t think there was much I could do about it. With her help I have cleared up an issue which was really affecting my daily life and I am so thankful for her help. After having had Tru Glo’s amazing staff I would never even consider going anywhere else ever for my cosmetic needs. Definitely 5 star!

Erica M

Love Everything About this Place

I just love everything about this place! It is a little pricey but it’s really worth it if you want to see real results. Maddie knows my skin better than I do and knows every procedure & product inside and out. I’d highly recommend it to anyone that is looking to take their beauty regimen to the next level.
