Holiday Gift Idea: A Mommy Makeover

If you have a woman in your life who has had her last baby, you may want to consider the gift of a "mommy make over" for Christmas or the Holidays.

A mommy make-over typically consists of a tummy tuck, liposuction and a breast lift and/or augmentation. Many moms find that even though they exercise regularly and have watched their diet to get their pre-baby bodies back, they still have excess skin, droopy boobs and pockets of fat  that won’t go away or bounce back.  Many often consider these evasive surgical means for getting their pre-baby body back.

However, these days there are many other non and less-invasive and/or non-surgical methods and options for the mom who cannot afford or do not want to take the risks of going “under the knife.”

Thermage is a treatment that uses unique radiofrequency (RF) technology to heat the deep layers of your skin, while cooling the surface of your skin to keep it intact during the procedure. This deep heating stimulates your body’s natural skin renewal process, which helps tighten existing collagen and form new collagen. Over time, sagging or wrinkled skin is replaced with smoother, tighter skin; improved tone and texture; and an overall younger looking appearance.

Laser Stretch Mark  is laser stretch mark removal procedure where a beam of light is used to remove thin layers of skin around the stretch marks. Instead of burning or cutting the affected skin areas like other lasers, it uses high-energy ultraviolet laser light to disrupt the molecular bonds in the skin tissue, which causes the tissue to disintegrate in a process known as ablation. Once laser stretch mark removal is complete, the treated area will heal quickly, and new layers of healthy skin will form. The site Doc Shop lets users search cosmetic practices that offer the service.

Lipodissolve or mesotherapy is a non-surgical alternative to cellulite removal. It involves the use of a solution that is injected into areas affected by fat and cellulite. However, the solution that is used in lipodissolve, or mesotherapy, procedures is not approved by the FDA. There is no solid evidence showing that lipodissolve injections are effective or safe. As such, most reputable physicians do not offer lipodissolve (or mesotherapy) treatment.

Velashape is another alternative non-invasive option to cellulite removal that IS approved by the FDA and has been since 2007. It involves the use of infrared light, radiofrequency, massage rollers, and suctioning to contour the body. Bellyitch will interview a practitioner in the coming weeks to learn more about this procedure. Stay tuned.
Nothing to be done about sagging boobs except getting cutlets or water bras to fake the reappearance of perky boobs once again.

Finding the gift of a new body under the tree is bound to make many a moms happy! 

And as for pure naturalists who reject all forms of methods for helping restore a pre-baby body, they would be fine accepting their new tiger stripes and altered body as warrior marks! Grrrr! I’m not mad at ya!!

For me, I'd take a new body to go, please  and thank you! ha!
