Ensuring you get the best mommy makeover result.

The Young Center for Naturopathic Wellness offers alternatives to women that treat your whole health and wellness. These are 5 of the best mommy makeover treatments instead of plastic surgery.


Think of this as an alternative to liposuction. Body contouring can be achieved through CoolSculpting which is a nonsurgical treatment. This non-invasive treatment will eliminate tummy fat and remove stubborn fat areas. You can undergo this fat freezing process on your stomach, arms, thighs and under your chin. FDA approved and with similar results to liposuction, you can target typical areas included in mommy makeovers; muffin tops, bra fat, love handles and stomach fat. Coolsculpting is a fat freezing technique that targets the fat cells which cannot be removed through diet and exercise alone. The Young Center for Naturopathic Wellness founding Doctor Renee Young refers to it as ‘Botox for the body’.


Treating incontinence issues without surgery can be achieved with this FDA approved treatment. The Los Gatos located Young Naturopathic Center for Wellness offers this as an alternative to surgery for incontinence issues. Having children puts a lot of strain on your pelvic floor and can cause bladder leaks when laughing, running or coughing. The effect of quality of life can be very impactful. A traditional mommy makeover surgery may include fixes for this, but there is nonsurgical treatment.

Referred to as the kegel throne because it works whilst sitting (fully clothed) on it. The Esmella device works by using high intensity and focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology. The result is the device induces muscle contractions in your pelvic muscles. The treatment produces thousands of kegel contractions in each session. Dr Young advises her clients undergo a schedule of 6 treatments, 30 minutes each session over a period of 2 per week for 3 weeks. Dr Young of Los Gatos assures her patients experience no pain or side effects plus no anesthesia is required.


Fat Blaster IV Drip Therapy

This targeted IV Therapy will speed up the metabolic process and is designed to increase the natural ability of the bodies break down of fat. Through intravenous vitamin and minerals, the fat blaster drip therapy makes your body burn calories faster. Vitamin B is part of the fat loss formula infused through an IV drip and the result is more energy plus faster weight loss. The formula promotes neurotransmitter production and includes amino acids like L-carnitine, inositol, methionine and choline which are all natural fat blasting agents. This a fantastic and natural treatment used to help those experiencing weight gain, slow weight loss and works as a reboot to your metabolism.

Often after experiencing hormonal changes that pregnancy brings, your metabolism can be highly affected. Plastic surgery cannot treat this symptom, in fact, fat blaster IV therapy is a great complementary treatment to use alongside any mommy makeover treatments both surgical or non-surgical.

HCG Weight Loss Protocol

HCG is the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin a hormone released during pregnancy that triggers stored fat to be sent as fuel for the developing baby. Used in conjunction with a low-calorie diet you can achieve amazing weight loss results. HCG drops will trigger the release of the stored fat and reduce the hunger signals sent by your brain during low-calorie diets. This is because it is stored fat being released and natural hormone drops working as hunger suppressants. HCG weight loss protocol can be followed for 6 weeks and is best to be monitored by a trained professional. The diet will achieve significant weight loss and could be an alternative to liposuction. Or as the previous treatment a complementary tool to use before any mommy makeover surgery.
