I think it’s safe to say that everyone has a particular part of their body that they really obsess about. (And if you don’t, more power to you.) It could be your nose, thighs or any other perceived flaw that won’t fix itself, and that’s why many of us turn to dermatologists or plastic surgeons to fix them. In my case, it’s my stomach—and my insecurities started well before I had an 8.5-pound baby and tipped the scale at 200 pounds before giving birth to my one and only son just about 11 years ago.

Since Emsculpt is “making strong the new sexy,” they thought it was only fitting to declare their own National Week (and it’s now an officially registered week on the National Day calendar).

Having a great body after having kids, used to be all about hard work and no carbs, but those days are so over. Thanks to an explosion in new fat reducing technology, slimmer hips, flatter tummies and shapelier curves are within every woman’s grasp.
And we are not talking about surgery either. The new generation of body contouring technologies are minimally invasive, and they are catching on. There were 180,000 non-surgical fat reduction treatments were performed in 2017, up almost 220% since 2012, according the latest statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
None of these are substitutes for eating a clean, healthy diet and getting regular exercise,
