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, has revealed 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.  Some key findings include:

  • Less than 30% of new moms were inspired by celebrity moms.
  • 71% of new moms report that they feel less physically attractive after having their baby.
  • 62% of women are spending significantly less time on their beauty routine after having a baby.
  • Nearly 40% of women surveyed do not wear makeup and do not shave at least once a week.
