No matter how hard you try, is your tummy still your trouble area? You're not alone. Meet Jennifer, a proud mother to her children, but a cover up artist for her belly. On today's episode of The Doctors, Jennifer details her journey from being naturally thin and competing in swimsuit competitions in her younger years, to struggling with "saggy, loose" skin on her stomach.
“When I got pregnant it was wonderful, but I got a really massive belly and no matter how hard I try, my stomach just won’t go back,” she says.
In addition to diet and routine exercise, there are treatments that can help get a physique back to pre-baby form. Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon does a live demonstration of the Venus Freeze Treatment, a non-invasive procedure that has been shown to tighten skin and reduce overall volume. Though Dr. Ordon recommends six to ten treatments for optimal results, they good news is that members of the RealSelf community have equated the reportedly painless new treatment to a "warm massage." Pricing has varied from a few hundred dollars to several thousand, so it's unclear yet how much it will hurt your wallet.
The forum chatter and reviews are just starting, but we're excited to see how the reviews pan out and doctors' responses to questions and patient claims.
See Jennifer's experience with the Venus Treatment in the clip below!
