Regaining Confidence in a Postpartum Body

Written by Leigh Walsh, Master Aesthetician and Body Specialist:


In the ever-evolving cosmetic world, it has been exciting to watch technology change and witness the growth of non-invasive procedures over the years. Among those changes, body sculpting devices have been one of the fastest developing in the field.

As a mother and master aesthetician, I was thrilled when the first FDA-cleared device for the postpartum tummy entered the market. In the past, there was never great success with treating the female postpartum body. VelaShape was cutting edge and designed to reduce the circumference of the “mommy pooch” as well as smooth thighs. Although this was groundbreaking at the time, the results were not permanent. As technology continued to advance, it wasn’t long before the first body device with permanent results entered the scene. This is when my passion for body contouring really took hold.


One of the most gratifying parts of my profession is helping women regain confidence in their body again after having children. At Body by Signature, we have the ability to permanently reduce stubborn pockets of fat. In addition, we have series-treatments to lift and tighten the skin, and even build muscle. Busy mothers can come in and have these treatments in very little time. Better yet, all of the treatments are non-invasive and have little to no downtime.


Magnetic muscle stimulation is one of the latest advancements in body contouring and offers many benefits to women that have carried children. During pregnancy, abdominal muscles can become weak, stretched, and sometimes separated. Devices such as Emsculpt and CoolTone have the ability to put your muscles to work in a way that is humanly impossible through exercise alone. This not only gives women a leg up on strengthening and toning their body, but also increases their ability to perform stronger workouts.


My advice for mothers, both new and old, is that it is okay to invest in yourself. You are worth it! When we look and feel our best, we do our best. I invite you to schedule a free consultation and begin your journey towards a more confident you, today.
