14 Jun CoolSculpting Helps with Post-Baby “Snapback”
The pressure on women to get back to their pre-baby body as quickly as possible has never been higher. Celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Gisele Bundchen have shown off their post-baby body weeks after giving birth, and have helped to fuel a culture that demands a so-called “snapback” faster than ever before. While it’s more important to have realistic health goals and to put safety first, there are non-invasive strategies to help maximize post-partum fitness regimens. CoolSculpting can help women who gained a healthy amount of weight during pregnancy re-shape and contour their body after birth.
CoolSculpting Treatments After Childbirth
Although CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss tool, it can be an effective way to target small areas of fat and help moms regain an aesthetically pleasing body to increase self-esteem (in a time when they need it most). Supermodel Molly Sims has also spoken out about the pressure on women to look runway-ready days after giving birth. She says that there’s a newfound obsession with instantly looking like you never gave birth, and pressure comes from within as well as a flooding of external messaging.
Sims adopted a safe and healthy approach to losing baby weight, using both exercise and CoolSculpting. She was so impressed with the fat-freezing results that she signed on to be a spokesperson for the procedure. According to Sims, it helped restore body confidence in a time when paparazzi would wait at her doctor’s offices to snap a photo of her post-baby body. She combined CoolSculpting with a high-protein, low-carb diet as well as Bikram Yoga, Body by Simone, Pilates, and Tracy Anderson.
“You’ve got to exercise and eat healthy” to lose weight, she says. Sims uses a pair of jeans that fit when she’s at a weight that makes her feel good in order to avoid the scale, which can lead to obsessing over workouts and calories. Once she can tell she’s within five pounds of her goal weight, she gets CoolSculpting. “It literally just took the fat away,” she said. “I know that sounds crazy, but no amount of sit-ups was going to do it.”
