Giving birth to a baby is a wonderful thing, but it can also take a toll on your body.  All the changes you’re dealing with can also make it challenging to get your pre-baby body back as soon as you want to. Giving yourself enough time to recover and not comparing your journey to others can go a long way in helping you bounce back.

Your Non-Surgical Alternatives to Mommy Makeover

Eating well and returning to exercise help make a difference, as well as undergoing aesthetic treatments that can help you look and feel good. A mommy makeover is a popular option, as it can address different post-pregnancy body issues all at once. This can help boost a woman’s self-esteem and make her feel good about her body.

What is a mommy makeover?

A traditional mommy makeover involves a series of surgical procedures to address post-pregnancy body issues and help women regain their pre-pregnancy body. The treatment is customized to fit the patient’s needs and preferences. It may include any combination of the following: 

  • Tummy tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Breast lift and augmentation
  • Circumferential abdominoplasty
  • Vaginal rejuvenation surgery

On average, recovery can take two to four weeks, but the healing process can take six months. Many patients, however, can return to their routine much earlier.

Non-surgical alternatives to mommy makeover

As not everyone is a candidate for surgery or willing to go under the knife, non-surgical procedures can be a good alternative. At Cutis, we have several non-invasive treatments that can help you deal with the physical changes in your body. 


Pregnancy leads to weight gain, especially around the waist and stomach. Many moms struggle to lose the extra pounds in these areas due to several factors such as less sleep, breastfeeding, and hormonal changes. Non-invasive fat reduction, along with a healthy diet and exercise, can help you lose localized fat bulges. 

CoolSculpting Elite – This redesigned fat freezing system targets, freezes, and eliminates fat cells, gradually reducing the area’s fat layer thickness. It features C-shaped applicators that complement the body’s natural curves, enabling a comfortable fat freezing treatment. It also allows dual sculpting or treatment of multiple areas in a single session.

ZLipo – Using controlled cooling temperatures, ZLipo breaks down fat and freezes cells to effectively reduce localized bulges. It also has applicators of different sizes, which can target different areas of the body, including the abdomen, hips, waist, and thighs. And just like CoolSculpting, it can target and freeze two areas at the same time.   

Vanquish ME – Instead of using cooling temperatures, Vanquish ME uses selective heating via radiofrequency energy. This FDA-approved procedure is effective for reducing fat in the belly, thighs, and love handles. It has also been proven to eliminate up to 59% of extra fat in the belly after diet and exercise have failed. 


After having a baby, it is normal to have loose skin around the belly and other areas including the arms, breasts, and thighs. This is due to stretching of the skin because of weight gain, which can also lead to stretch marks. Non-invasive skin tightening procedures can help you achieve firmer, smoother skin. 

Exilis Ultra 360 – This skin tightening treatment uses radiofrequency and ultrasound energy to improve lax skin, cellulite, and stubborn fat. It gently heats the skin to increase collagen and elastin levels, improving skin quality. It can also target the fat layers and disrupt fat cells, triggering apoptosis or natural cell death. It can contour or tighten different parts of the body for head-to-toe rejuvenation

Acoustic shockwave therapy – Using acoustic waves and targeted vibrations, acoustic shockwave can improve cellulite, stretch marks, and scarring. It uses a handheld device that induces targeted vibrations in the connective tissues, breaking down the fat under the skin. It also helps with collagen production to make the skin firmer and more elastic. 


This post-pregnancy body concern refers to the partial separation of the abdominal muscles that can result in a protruding belly pooch. Diastasis recti is visible when the ab muscles are contracted and can linger months after giving birth. A high-energy inductive treatment can help improve its appearance, as well as provide muscle toning benefits.

ZField Dual – This non-invasive body shaping procedure induces muscle contractions in the abdominal areas and other body parts. It delivers electromagnetic pulses and generates a strong inductive field, which then strengthens the muscle fibers. ZField Dual results in improved muscle conditioning, helping you achieve a toned and sculpted body. You can also turn to it to:

  • Lift and tighten your buttocks non-invasively
  • Help you achieve more visible abs
  • Define, shape, and tone different areas of the body


After pregnancy, the intimate area may not look and feel as it was once used to. Common issues include vaginal laxity, stress incontinence, less sensation during intercourse, and intimate discoloration. Non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation can help with this, along with a medical-grade depigmenting solution. 

Ultra Femme 360 – This procedure stimulates new collagen to restore the vaginal and vulvar areas. It can treat both the external and internal genitalia using 360° volumetric heating via radiofrequency and ultrasound technology. It gently heats the tissues in the area to promote blood and collagen synthesis. Ultra Femme 360 can help: 

  • Tighten the vaginal canal and opening 
  • Raise and tighten the labia
  • Improve sensation
  • Treat the symptoms of stress urinary incontinence
  • Improve vaginal dryness
  • Improve orgasm/enhance sexual satisfaction

Dermamelan intimate – This depigmenting solution offers short- and long-term correction of hyperpigmentation in the delicate areas. It lightens the darkening in the area and addresses the root of the issues, as well as speeds up skin peeling and renewal. It involves an in-office session and an at-home protocol to regulate melanin production.

Dermamelan intimate can treat the: 

  • Genital-perineal area
  • Perianal area
  • Mons pubis
  • Inner thighs
  • Groin
