Mum Bum

Being a mum is not always about your baby, your wellbeing and appearance are also important! We know that pregnancy can alter the appearance of our body including the bums, today let’s talk about “mum bums”.

Mum Bum

“Mum Bums” often occur during or after pregnancy due to change of fat deposition on the bottoms, they have become larger, flatter, and saggier than before.

Also, it can be associated with separated pubic symphysis due to childbirth, loosen muscles and ligaments around the pelvis, and abnormal shape of the sacrum.

Although it is called “mum bum”, people who have never been pregnant are not immune as sedimental lifestyle can cause a “mum bum”.

“Mum bums” can make us look old and tired.



Hormones flood through the body when we are pregnant. When it gets closer to childbirth, our body produces a hormone called relaxin which helps prepare the uterus and cervix for giving birth by relaxing ligaments and muscles. As the foetus continues to grow, pubic symphysis becomes separated, and the pelvis expands outwards to both sides. As a result of delivery, the level of relaxin declines, ligaments and muscles at the pelvis become loosened, pelvic floor becomes weakened, and causes extensive pelvic floor trauma, all of these changes make the bottoms sagging.

Always sitting

It is absolutely normal for women to spend time resting and sitting after the delivery for a speedy healing and feeding newborns. However, spending hours sitting means a fat accumulation at bottoms and abdomens. Also, sitting for too long definitely slows down circulation and weakens the muscles at the bottoms, over time, the bums will deform into an undefined, large and flat appearance.

Whether you have experienced pregnancy or not, sitting down for a long time can develop “mum buns” as it leads to poor circulation at the lower part of the body, loose glutes muscles, anterior pelvic tilt, and tendency of fat deposited at the bottoms.


  • Sitting down for too long – Hippo Hips

Sitting down for a prolonged period of time can slow down blood circulation at the lower body, weaken glute muscles, and make the fat accumulate at the upper bums, forming the shape of a hippo.

  • Hormonal change – No waistline

Oestrogen level increases during pregnancy, and it cannot return to the pre-pregnancy level in a short period of time after delivery. Some people may develop hormonal disorders. Along with limited exercise and poor diet, fat will tend to accumulate at the body and buttocks and eventually lose the waistline.

  • Weak pelvic – large and wide hip

Poor recovery progress of the pelvis from childbirth does not benefit the reshape of lower body and bullocks.


  1. Appearance of hip dips – slight depressions on the outside part of the upper legs just below your hip bone.
  2. Hours spent sitting and poor postures can lead to tight gluteus maximus and with obvious hip dips
  3. If you have relatively low butt lines and flat bullocks, having strength training will only make your bums bigger but not give you peachy bums.
  4. Have V-shaped bums instead of peachy bums.

Affected People

Mainly people who have been through pregnancy, who have sentimental lifestyles such as office workers, and who have overly trained their glutes.


Muscle and fat are in different structures and not interchangeable, it is important to know that it is not possible to turn fat into muscle by any means. Therefore, losing weight and building muscle are two different goals and can be achieved at the same time, causing no conflicts.

Ai Beauty Clinic offers a range of quality treatments to help clients to remove their unwanted fat on bums, in a pain-free and risk-free way. Treatments will focus on both fat reduction and muscle building.

A. CoolSculpting Elite (Fat freezing treatment)

What is CoolSculpting:

CoolSculpting Elite system is a fat freezing treatment system developed by renowned dermatologists Dr.R.Rox Anderson and Dr. Fieter Manstein at Massachusetts General Hospital (A teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School), and manufactured by American medical equipment manufacturer ZELTIQ AESTHETICS, INC.. The system has been widely used in more than 80 countries globally with more than 5 millions successful practical cases. This technology has been certified by the US FDA, China CFDA and CE. Its safety and prominent results have granted the CoolSculpting technology to be a world class body sculpting treatment.


Based on the cold-intolerance property of fat cells, CoolSculpting technology utilises low temperature (4~5℃) applicators to chill the unwanted fat cells. Fat cells will then die and be excreted out of the body as they can not tolerate low temperature. The accurate temperature setting and the usage of the applicator probe ensure that the process will not damage any normal body tissues except fat cells. Thanks to the high accuracy and specificity, one treatment can achieve a removal of 22.4% fat.


1、Face-to-face consultation: Evaluation of bulges including location and size. Doctor will provide a suggested treatment plan based on your situation and expectation.

2、Pre-treatment: Draw markings to define treatment areas. Clean, disinfect and install the tip of applicator.

B. Lipodissolve injection

What is Lipodissolve injection:

Lipodissolve injection is considered the most safe and effective non-surgical fat reduction treatment, it works particularly well on localised fat reduction such as double chin, chubby face, arms and legs. Lipodissolve injection boosts the metabolic rate of fat tissue, enhances digestion of fat cells, and tightens and lifts the skin.

How does it work?

Lipodissolve injection solution will be administered locally to the subcutaneous fat layer. The active ingredients in the solution will break down the walls of fatty cells and increase the localised concentration of lipase enzymes to facilitate the destruction of fatty cells and let the body flush out the fat as waste via the lymphatic system.


1. Face-to-face consultation: Doctor conducts evaluation of the thickness of the double chin and provides professional advice on whether or not a lipodissolve injection treatment is suitable. If suitable, the injection site will then be marked on the face.

2. Pre-treatment preparation: Local anesthetic. Clean and disinfect the injection areas.

3. Injection: Administered with blunt needles at the double chin. Only one injection at each injection zone.

4. Post-treatment precautions.

Duration: 30-45 mins

Who is it for?

  • People who have problems of stubborn fat at troubled areas around the body including shoulders, inner thighs, joints, abdomen, etc;
  • People who have fat deposited in their body and want to eliminate cellulite;
  • People who are experiencing uneven skin texture after liposuction treatment;
  • People who want a non-invasive fat reduction treatment without any involvement of surgical operation, liposuction or general anesthesia;
  • People who lack exercise;
Ai Beauty Lipodissolve Injection:

Two UK proven lipodissolve injection solutions are available from Ai Beauty: Aqualyx (United Kingdom) and Desobody (Italy).

Developed by BTL, BTL EMSCULPT is an innovative device that can simultaneously burn fat (19%) and build muscle (16%) by a non-invasive technology. The device offers effective and safe results without emitting any radiation, freezing or high temperature that may damage the epidermis. BTL EMSCULPT has been certified by the US FDA, CE and TGA, and supported by 7 pieces of independent academic research in the United States. EMSCULPT is the same technology that Kim Kardashian has used for shaping her figure.

How does it work:

BTL EMSCULPT adopts a breakthrough technology called High-intensity Focused Electromagnetic Technology (HIFEM) . In only 30 minutes, an energy pulse will stimulate muscle contraction for 20,000 times. The electromagnetic wave emitted from the well designed applicator can penetrate up to 7cm depth of the muscle layer in order to trigger extreme muscular contractions that the human body cannot achieve autonomously. These contractions facilitate fat burning (by increasing breakdown of fat cells) and muscle building and strengthening.


1、Face-to-face consultation: Customise a unique treatment plan for each client based on their condition and desired result.

2、BTL EMSCULPT: Place the applicator tip onto the treatment area, gradually increase the energy intensity.

3、Post-treatment precautions.

Duration: 30-45 mins

Who is it for:

  • People who are not significantly overweight but looking for a reduction of stubborn fat at specific areas such as shoulders, abdomens and buttocks;
  • People who have fat deposited at the waist or abdomen and want to rebuild their waistline by fat burning and muscle building;
  • People who have loosen skin and want to reshape their body contour and tighten their skin
  • People who want to build muscle and burn fat at the same time;
  • People who want to rebuild their body silhouette after childbirth;
  • People who want a non-invasive fat reduction treatment without any involvement of surgical operation, liposuction or general anesthesia;
  • People who lack sufficient exercise and want to lose fat healthily;

BTL EMSCULPT is a fat reduction/muscle building exercise device that only requires you to lay down and causes no sweating. This non-invasive treatment simulates a high frequency exercise to burn fat and hence reshape body contour scientifically and healthily. Ai Beauty Clinic is one of the first aesthetic clinics to introduce BTL EMSculpt in the UK.
