Emsculpt Mommy Makeover: Best Results in Northern Virginia
Emsculpt Mommy Makeover Northern Virginia
Emsculpt was recently cleared by the FDA to simultaneously increase muscle mass and reduce fat in the abdomen and buttocks, making it the perfect non-surgical option for a Mommy Makeover in Northern Virginia.
Post-pregnancy, women may notice that their bodies look and feel different. Many new moms are able to lose weight through a healthy diet and regular exercise, but certain concerns may be resistant to these methods.
As a result, patients often seek the assistance of plastic surgeons or dermatologists to regain their pre-pregnancy physique with a mommy makeover.
A mommy makeover can be achieved through a variety of non-surgical treatments to address excess fat, loose skin, and cellulite.
However, none of these procedures are able to strengthen and build muscle, which is an essential part of our well-being and physical appearance.
Fortunately, this innovative technology is also able to successfully treat diastasis recti (abdominal separation) that so many women encounter after childbirth.
For these reasons, Emsculpt is set to become the leading non-surgical treatment for a mommy makeover and correction of diastasis recti.
Here’s what you need to know.
What Is an Emsculpt Mommy Makeover?
Emsculpt in a non-invasive body contouring system that uses High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate 20,000 muscle contractions in the treatment area. These forced contractions are very powerful and are able to reconstruct muscles and melt fat.
As a result, Emsculpt produces a leaner and more defined abdomen and lifted and firmer buttocks – all without incisions, anesthesia or downtime.
What Are Other Non-Surgical Treatment Options?
For several years, SculpSure and Coolsculpting have been the two of the most in-demand treatments for targeting and destroying excess fat.Both treatments can be completed in under 30 minutes and have zero downtime.
In more recent years, patients have been persuing a mommy makeover with a combination of Vanquish ME and Tempsure Envi.
However, unlike Emsculpt, neither SculpSure nor Coolsculpting builds and strengthens lax muscle under fat.
As a result, patients are only achieving circumferential reduction without any true sculpting or shaping of their abdomen.
What Are Minimally Invasive Treatment Options?
Laser liposuction requires the use of local anesthesia and several very small incisions to extract considerably more fat than SculpSure or Coolsculpting.
This procedure can also tighten skin to a certain degree, but does not have any effect on muscle tone or strength.
Additionally, Cellulaze and Celfina are minimally invasive treatments for the improvement of post-pregnancy cellulite on the hips, thighs, and buttocks.
But neither of these procedures has Emsculpt’s capacity to increase strength, stimulate the gluteal region, and lift buttocks.
Why is Emsculpt the Ideal Way to Treat Diastasis Recti (Abdominal Separation)?
One of the main concerns than many women face post-pregnancy is diastasis recti. This occurs when rectus abdominis muscles separate and leave a gap between the abdominal muscles that allows the belly to pooch out.
For these patients, Emsculpt can reduce the severity of diastasis recti, as it melts unwanted fat and strengthens abdominal muscles.
In fact, clinical studies have shown an 11% decrease in diastasis recti following treatment with Emsculpt.
Other non-surgical body contouring treatments have not demonstrated the ability to treat diastasis recti because they are unable to strengthen the muscles involved.
