To all new mothers, congratulations on your delivery! Embarking on motherhood can be an overwhelming experience as the joy of meeting your precious one comes hand in hand with the hope of a prompt personal recovery following childbirth. Although pregnancy undoubtedly changes a woman’s body, there are ways to recover well from it; such as going through post pregnancy slimming!
1. Changes to your body during pregnancy
During pregnancy, the growing baby as well as hormonal changes stretch the skin, muscles, and supporting structures. As your dear baby grows, remember that your skin “grows” with it! A saggy and flabby belly after pregnancy is perfectly normal and common as collagen fibres rupture as they overstretch.
2. I still look pregnant after giving birth months ago!
If you still look pregnant months after giving birth, you may have a diastasis recti. This sounds alarming but rectus abdominis diastasis (RAD) is merely an anatomic term describing a condition in which an abnormal distance separates the two rectus muscles.
3. What can I do about it?
You may have heard of other fat-freezing and fat reduction treatment claiming to remove fats and tone the body but most of the time, the treated area tends to become loose and saggy. EMBODY™ can help with post-natal slimming by burning visceral fats and building muscles at the same time to achieve better body shape. It is especially effective when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.
It is an FDA-approved patented technology based on high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM). This uses medical grade technology to stimulate supramaximal muscle contractions that are much stronger, faster and achievable than through voluntary exercise. It helps to effectively tone, sculpt, define and tighten your muscles while burning fat simultaneously. An efficient tummy slimming treatment in Singapore!
4. There’s something embarrassing too. I find myself leaking urine post-delivery. What can I do about it?
Indeed, motherhood comes with many sacrifices. But there are treatment options! EMSELLA® is a non-surgical and comfortable treatment that can help with urinary incontinence.
EMSELLA® uses focused electromagnetic energy to induce thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions in a single session. How does this help you might ask? It actually helps with stimulation of the muscles of incontinent patients to strengthen the pelvic floor.
Urinary incontinence needs to be treated early as it may worsen over time and cause pelvic organ prolapse in severe cases!
5. I have both problems! Can I do both?
Yes of course! Many women have found this treatment helpful. Both Emsella and Embody take only 30 minutes per session. Individuals are advised to go for 2 sessions every week to see desired results, however do note that the number of sessions required may vary from person to person, depending on their body condition. Individuals may visit our Medispa for body assessment and treatment recommendation.
Some individuals can feel a difference after one session and can see desired results as early as 2-6 weeks after the first treatment. The treated area will feel stronger with each treatment, with increased muscle mass. Overlying fat will also improve along the way.
6. Is there any downtime with this?
There is no downtime thankfully. Individuals can resume their daily activities right after the short and comfortable 30 minutes treatment. During the treatment, they will be fully clothed and relax on the EMSELLA® chair.
7. There is another problem. I feel “looser” during sex and my labia looks dark. What can I do about it?
There are good solutions to this. Ultra Femme Labia Rejuvenation is a safe and comfortable non-surgical treatment for ladies to effectively address feminine wellness issues such as labia laxity or deflation and darkening of the skin of the labia.
During pregnancy, to accommodate the birth process, vaginas are stretched with resultant effect.
It works by combining radiofrequency waves and ultrasound energy, providing complete vaginal rejuvenation treatment that includes labia remodelling. Patients have reported visible results after a single session with lasting outcomes.
8. How is this done?
For this treatment, the Exilis Ultra Femme 360, an FDA-approved medical device, uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat vaginal tissues. This rejuvenation process stimulates collagen growth to tighten and smoothen vaginal tissues. Again, it is a short and non-invasive treatment that requires only 20-30 minutes, depending on individuals’ body condition.
Gel is first applied to the external vagina labia before a specially designed hand piece is gently introduced. The hand piece will be in contact with the skin and gently moved around the external labia area. You will experience a warm sensation with no discomfort throughout the session. Some people may notice mild redness in the treatment area, which will usually disappear in a few hours but this is perfectly expected and normal and you can resume your usual activities after a few hours.
