Post Pregnancy Fat Reduction and Skin Tightening
Dearest New Mummies or Mummies-To-Be,
Looking for fat reduction, body slimming and body contouring? Troubled by the excess fat and loose skin after pregnancy?
Yes, now you have found the new love of your life and dedicate your utmost energy, time and effort into this small and wonderful being that was brought to this earth by your hardwork.
Carrying a baby in your womb for 9 months is definitely not an easy feat, requiring much patience and dedication as you seek to provide the best for your child, which is indeed an amazing process.
I’m sure we will all never forget the blood, sweat and tears (literally), that went into bringing this new life into the world.
However, during this process of pregnancy, you might find that your body is undergoing changes. This is due to the 9 consecutive months of body changes as your uterus stretches to hold the growing foetus. Your skin will stretch to almost 20 times its original size, and your body holds excess water retention due to hormonal change.
Hence, the body of post-pregnancy might not be one in which you are the most confident in. You might notice thicker thighs, bigger hips, appearance of lax stomach and flabby arms.
So what is the recommended treatments available for body slimming, for you to get back in the shape before all these happened (or obtain an even better appearance)?
We recommend an effective 2 step body slimming program.
Step 1: Stubborn Fat Reduction through Fat freeze
Step 2: Skin Tightening and Body Contouring through Venus Legacy
Fat freeze is a comfortable and effective procedure that helps to remove stubborn excess fat. Excess fat bulge is able to be eliminated through the process of fat freeze, also known as cryoliposis. The bulge is first sucked up into the applicator, which will undergo cooling to -9°, causing the fat cells to literally freeze to death. This process is called atopsis, whereby the death of fat cells causes no harm to the surrounding tissues. The fat cells are then metabolised out of the body through natural processes. This effectively brings about fat reduction.
It is important to pick a medical clinic that uses a Fat Freeze device on the high-end in the market, such as Clatuu, ensuring a 360° surround cooling to give you the best experience and results. Visible fat reduction can be seen as early as a month after a treatment.
Each Fat freeze cycle takes about an hour to complete. With the dual applicators, 2 fat freeze cycles can be completed at the same time. More fat reduction in a shorter period of time!
Which areas can be targeted for fat reduction through fat freeze?
The areas highlighted in blue are some of the common areas targeted for stubborn fat reduction through fat freeze. This fat reduction procedure has Zero downtime, no cuts, needles or injections involved, and you can resume your daily activities immediately after the fat freeze procedure!
Loose skin, stretch marks, cellulite is able to be reduced with Venus Legacy body contouring, the latest non-invasive medical-grade machine that uses 4D technology to sculpt, slim, contour, tighten and firm skin.
Lax and saggy skin is a common sight among new mothers, due to the stretching of the skin during pregnancy, as the foetus develops in your body. With Venus Legacy, Multi-Polar Radio Frequency, Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields and VariPulse Technology penetrates into the skin, creating a uniform heated layer within the skin. This calls for the body to produce collagen, firming the skin, and breakdown fats, reducing cellulite and sculpting the skin. Visible results could be seen after 6 treatments.
Both of these treatments are completely comfortable, with no downtime nor side effects. You are able to return to your daily activities immediately after treatment.
For Vaginal-Delivery-Mothers, you are able to perform these medical-grade treatments as early as one month after delivery, which is right after confinement, allowing you to achieve your desired shape as early as possible.
For Caesarean-Section-Mothers, it is recommended for you to undergo these treatments a month after delivery on areas other than the stomach, such as thighs, arms, double chin. As for the stomach area, it is advisable for you to wait 6 months before allowing your stomach to these treatments, ensuring the full closure and repair of the caesarean wound.

Most women hope that all this excess weight and fat can be shed off as soon as possible. However, there are definite methods that are strictly no-nos when it comes to post-natal weight loss, as you will wish for your child to grow up healthy and happy.
This is method of fat reduction or weight loss is strictly not advisable. You, as a new mother, need optimal nutrition due to the large amount of demands from pregnancy and birth. A well-rounded, balanced diet is essential for your good health, especially nutrients such as healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants. If you breastfeed, sufficient nutrients are required to transfer from your breast milk to your child. Your body is actively making milk for your little one, thus, the milk will be the nutrient powerhouse. It is very important for you to ensure you have well optimised and balanced meals, providing the best for you and your child. Hence crash dieting is definitely not recommended post-natal.
Slimming Pills and/or Meal Replacements
This method of fat reduction is not recommended as well. As explained, a well balanced diet is needed as pregnancy and birth is not an easy feat. As such, you will require a large variety of nutrients and vitamins, in which slimming pills and meal replacements have a possibility of detering you from receiving them. Hence, do consult a medical professional and think twice before consuming such products.
Last word of advise for you: It took you 9 months to bring the new wonderful being to the world, and the same length of time for your body to change. Hence, do be patient in the process of reverting back to your prenatal figure. Ensure you are well-rested and well-nourished as you combat this battle. Do remember that there are clinically-proven options available for you to regain your confidence, with the help of an aesthetic doctor to conquer this, as you start the new chapter of your life.
