Cellulite On Thighs During Pregnancy – Will It Go Away?

Cellulite On Thighs

Ah pregnancy. Leaving you with an extra 20 or 30 pounds, an infamous “mom-butt” and some interesting upper chest changes, it’s a wonder women weren’t left alone after all that. But for some, it just doesn’t stop there. Many women also will encounter cellulite on thighs and butts, along with their arms during pregnancy.

For many new moms, losing the baby weight is concern number one in regards their after delivery appearance. The good news is that the effort you are putting in to shed those pounds will likely be all that you need to combat your new skin dimples that are adding to your shapely backside. Cellulite on thighs and other areas will likely diminish as you exercise post pregnancy. Changing your diet to reduce saturated fats, staying away from coffee and soft drinks, avoiding alcohol and reducing salt intake will help to round out your efforts.

A quick google search of how to get rid of cellulite on legs will likely point you to many spas and salons touting quick removal procedures. While all new moms are more than deserving of a good massage, endermologic treatments are most often going to yield mediocre results. They take many sessions, require monthly maintenance sessions thereafter and involve little more than “steamrolling” your cottage cheese skin. Endermologic cost is also a concern, as it may run you more than you spent on that new nursery when it’s all said and done to have your mattress butt treated at a spa.

Cellulite on thighs sends many women running for liposuction, but liposuction cellulite treatments are not recommended by many. For one, liposuction can’t reach the skin layer that cellulite occurs in, and in some cases, it may increase the look of scattered gravel on your backside.

As with many of the druthers of pregnancy, cellulite on thighs and other parts of the body often will subside or the appearance will be reduced greatly on its own. Exercise and diet, which likely will be part of your after care routine anyways, are often enough to help smooth the skin. If you don’t jump on the exercise bandwagon directly after baby, those infant-chasing crawling months will certainly help eliminate your jiggle and help you shed that baby weight.
