Post-Pregnancy Diastasis Recti: How Emsculpt NEO can help rebuild your core

Pregnancy and childbirth bring profound transformations to a woman’s body. While many embrace these changes as part of the journey into motherhood, adapting to them can be difficult. This trend has sparked what some might call a ‘Mommy makeover’, a term describing a range of surgical procedures focusing on areas most impacted by pregnancy, such as the breasts and abdomen. This makeover often involves interventions such as breast lifts or augmentations, paired with abdominoplasty and/or liposuction, all aimed at restoring that pre-baby body.

Another prevalent issue that can arise is diastasis recti, a condition characterized by the separation of abdominal muscles due to the strain of pregnancy. This separation, while natural during pregnancy, may persist postpartum, leading to a protruding belly, weakened core, and loose skin. While surgical procedures like abdominoplasty can bring these muscles back together, alternative methods, such as targeted muscle stimulation and fat reduction procedures like Emsculpt NEO, can offer alternatives for addressing diastasis recti and strengthening the core without the need for surgery.

Diastasis recti: Abdominal muscle separation after pregnancy, often accompanied by loose belly skin.

Although the Emsculpt procedure doesn’t offer a complete solution for diastasis recti, it does contribute to core strengthening. This, in turn, can result in a firmer appearance and can also provide relief from postpartum back pain experienced by many new mothers.

Emsculpt NEO: The ultimate 2-in-1 Treatment

By eliminating fat cells and stimulating muscle growth through intense contractions, the Emsculpt NEO treatment presents a holistic approach to body sculpting, focusing on toning and strengthening specific muscle groups. In a quick 30-minute session, this non-invasive treatment seamlessly integrates Radiofrequency heating and HIFEM to target fat reduction and muscle enhancement simultaneously.

Clinical studies have shown an average of 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and a 25% increase in muscle thickness.

Another standout feature of Emsculpt NEO is its ability to cater to a wide range of patients, with treatment options available for individuals up to BMI 35. This broad appeal ensures that more people can benefit from the transformative effects of Emsculpt NEO, regardless of their body composition.

How Emsculpt NEO works

A Non-Surgical Remedy: Emsculpt Neo Clinical Findings

While abdominoplasty surgery offers an immediate solution to diastasis recti, it comes with potential drawbacks such as extended recovery time and cost. For those seeking a non-surgical alternative, Emsculpt Neo presents a promising option.

A clinical study, published in the Journal of Women’s Health Care, showcased promising outcomes involving 32 female participants aged 27 to 44, with a BMI range of 19.4 to 34.5 kg/m². These individuals underwent four sessions of HIFEM+RF abdominal procedures, each spaced 5-10 days apart. The findings revealed:

  • Core muscle strength increased by +23.95% at 1 month and +27.94% at 3 months.
  • Waist circumference reduction by -3.12 cm at 1 month and -4.61 cm at 3 months.
  • 97.0% of participants reported strengthened core muscles.

The advantages to choosing Emsculpt Neo for post-pregnancy core issues:

  1. Non-Surgical Approach: Emsculpt Neo sidesteps the need for invasive procedures, offering a non-surgical alternative devoid of the risks associated with surgery, such as infections or anesthesia complications. This makes it a safer avenue for individuals keen on addressing abdominal muscle separation without undergoing surgery.

  2. Time-Efficient Sessions: With treatment sessions typically lasting around 30 minutes, Emsculpt Neo caters to the time constraints of busy moms juggling myriad responsibilities. Its efficiency translates to tangible results in fewer sessions, presenting a faster solution compared to conventional methods.

  3. Holistic Benefits: In addition to addressing diastasis recti, Emsculpt Neo boosts overall core strength and stability, crucial for maintaining good posture and preventing back pain—an all-too-common problem after pregnancy. Strengthening your core makes daily activities like lifting and carrying easier and speeds up your return to exercise after giving birth.
