Can Body Contouring Help Reduce My Postpartum Belly?

By: Lori Alessandrini


Pregnancy and childbirth are life-changing experiences but tend to cause problems that can make us feel self-conscious. For example, a protruding belly or “mommy pooch.” Body contouring with EMSCULPT NEO may reduce your postpartum belly by breaking down stubborn fat and increasing muscle mass.

EMSCULPT NEO can provide the body confidence you need to look and feel your best. Call Essential Aesthetics & Laser to learn about this innovative technology, or schedule an appointment. Licensed aesthetician and certified laser technician Lori Alessandrini is proud to have helped countless women regain their pre-pregnancy figures in Charlotte, NC.

What cosmetic issues does pregnancy cause?

Though pregnancy and childbirth are incredibly rewarding, they cause cosmetic issues that are difficult to address on your own. For example, pregnancy leads to stretched-out skin around the waistline and small fat deposits in the abdomen. The muscles of the abdominal wall become weakened, resulting in a sagging or protruding belly. Body contouring may help when traditional diet and exercise fail to produce slimming results.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

Instead of relying on surgery and invasive techniques, EMSCULPT NEO utilizes radiofrequency energy and high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM). These two powerful energies break down fat cells while contracting the targeted muscles. The result is a toned and contoured abdomen, with a noticeable reduction in postpartum belly fat.

EMSCULPT NEO is generally safe and can be used on nearly any body part that could use some contouring, not just the abdomen. Essential Aesthetics & Laser offers custom packages tailored to your specific needs.

What are the benefits of EMSCULPT NEO?

We understand that solutions like plastic surgery are not for everyone. EMSCULPT NEO offers many benefits for postpartum women in Charlotte, NC, including:

  • Targeted fat reduction and muscle toning in the abdomen
  • Enhanced definition of your waistline
  • Increased abdominal muscle strength
  • Quick and easy treatments with no downtime

Is EMSCULPT NEO for everyone?

EMSCULPT NEO is safe and effective for most people who want to reduce their postpartum belly fat. However, a consultation with a licensed aesthetician is necessary to determine your candidacy. Lori Alessandrini can evaluate your medical history, lifestyle habits, and aesthetic goals before creating a custom body contouring treatment plan.

How many treatments are required?

The number of EMSCULPT NEO sessions needed depends on your individual treatment plan. We generally recommend a series of 4 – 5 appointments to reduce stubborn fat deposits. Each session takes about 30 minutes, so you can easily fit them into your routine. Our patients typically notice visible improvements once a series of sessions is complete.


EMSCULPT NEO treatments are virtually pain-free and require no anesthesia or recovery time. The feeling of the treatment is likened to a deep tissue massage. You may feel some warmth and slight discomfort, but the process should not be painful or cause any burning sensations. Most people report that EMSCULPT NEO is a comfortable and relaxing experience.
