Celebrity Moms' Post-Baby Body Triggers Jealousy, Skepticism in U.S. Moms

Syneron's VelaShape(TM) proven to help regain pre-pregnancy body

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Syneron(TM), the manufacturer and marketer of post-baby body shaping solution VelaShape(TM) and other medical aesthetic devices providing treatments resulting in body contouring, today reveals the results of the VelaShape Body After Baby National Research measuring post-pregnancy women's desire to regain their pre-pregnancy body. Syneron commissioned M/A/R/C Research to conduct a survey with a sampling of 500 U.S. women who had a child within the last eight years to see how they felt about their body post-pregnancy, how they felt about celebrity moms' bodies post-pregnancy, what parts of their body are of most concern, what causes these body image concerns and lifestyle changes these women have made since having children/a child.

In a clinical study directly addressing post-baby body concerns, VelaShape was proven effective by reducing circumference and skin texture in new mom problem areas including the thighs, buttocks and stomach.

Key survey findings from the VelaShape Body After Baby National Research include: (click here: for full survey results and methodology)

Celebrity Mom Backlash Imminent: 54 percent of women choose jealousy to describe their attribute toward celebrity moms who immediately regain their pre-baby shape.

-- Despite being jealous, women surveyed also express admiration (47 percent) and skepticism (41 percent) of celebrity moms' post-baby bodies.

-- Less than 30 percent of new moms were inspired by celebrity moms.

-- Reese Witherspoon is the celebrity mom's body most admired by respondents.

* Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Lopez, Demi Moore and Catherine Zeta Jones, respectively, also topped the list.

The Majority of Moms Think about their Bodies Daily: More than half of women (57 percent) surveyed say they think about their body shape daily.

-- 71 percent of new moms report that they feel less physically attractive after having their baby.

-- Women reported that even if they were able to lose some or all of their pregnancy weight, 88 percent could not get back their pre-baby stomach.

* The other top concerns for women were their thighs (47 percent) and their buttocks (33 percent).

-- Overwhelmingly, women (and the men surveyed about women's post-pregnancy body) describe their least favorite body part as a "jelly belly."

Moms Trade in Bikinis for Oversized Sweats: 48 percent of women add oversized sweaters and sweatshirts to their wardrobe after having a baby.

-- 15 percent of women began wearing their husband's clothes post-pregnancy.

-- Though nearly half of women responding say they wore a bikini before pregnancy, less than 10 percent claim to have worn one post-pregnancy, with one third opting for a one piece swimsuit.

-- On average, women felt they needed to lose two dress sizes to reach their ideal shape.

Moms Sex Life Suffers: More than 68 percent of women agree that they would have sex more often if they had their pre-baby body back.

Dads More Positive When it Comes to Body Image: Men perceive the average amount of weight gained as less than what women report.

-- The average weight women reported wanting to lose, 36 pounds post-baby, was statistically significantly more than the 27 pounds that men think women should lose.

Moms Stop Trying to be Beautiful: 62 percent of women are spending significantly less time on their beauty routine after having a baby.

-- Nearly 40 percent of women surveyed do not wear makeup and do not shave at least once a week.

In the recent clinical study performed on new mothers, Dr. Marc Winter, an OB/GYN in Newport Beach, California, tested the effects of VelaShape, the first FDA-cleared device for temporary thighs circumferential reduction and the first class II device cleared for temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite. The study demonstrated that VelaShape reduces circumference and improves skin texture using a combination of heat, suction and massage. The study found that patients saw an average reduction of 2.9 inches on their stomach, one inch on each thigh and 2.33 inches on the buttocks after five VelaShape treatments.

"VelaShape is comfortable, relaxing and, best of all, effective," said Jessica Denay, founder of the Hot Mom's Club and author of the Hot Mom's Handbook series. "After having VelaShape treatments, I was able to fit back into pants I hadn't been able to wear for years. I regularly recommend VelaShape to my fellow mothers to get that extra little boost in confidence they need to truly be a Hot Mom."

A patient of Dr. Winter's, Denay understands the frustrations that new mom's face as they deal with the many changes a new baby brings - not the least of which is a mother's body. In her guide "The Busy Mom's Guide to a Beautiful Body", free and downloadable at, Denay recommends a healthy diet and regular exercise to new mothers to help re-build body confidence, but realizes that sometimes that is just not enough to get the desired results. As she explains in the guide, a mother's body is literally pulled, tugged and stretched from the inside out and that really takes a toll on a mother's body.
