Ready for Your Mommy Makeover?

Being a mom is hard. When you were pregnant with your first child, you probably knew that you were signing up for a lot of sleepless nights, tantrums, and all of the sweat, blood, and tears that go along with raising a child.  Yet, like so many, you were willing to deal with all that in order to experience the indescribable joy of being a mom.

Unfortunately, you may not have realized that being a mom may mean saying goodbye to your pre-mom body. Again, the sacrifice to your breasts and abdomen is worth it to have a child, but that doesn’t mean that you have to be satisfied with your post baby body once you’re done having kids.

Over the last decade, many women have chosen to get their pre-mom body back by having what’s known as a "mommy makeover." In most cases, a mommy makeover includes 2 to 3 plastic surgeries done at the same time to give you back the supple breasts and tight stomach that you had before having children.

The fact is, bearing children wreaks havoc on your breasts and stomach. Breastfeeding can actually cause your breasts to lose some of their tissue after the initial swell you get from lactating. As a result, breasts are left saggy and smaller than they were before you had children. Likewise, your stomach is also often left a bit droopy after having a baby. Even if you lose all of your baby weight plus some, you might still be left with loose skin, stretch marks, and perhaps a C-section scar. Fat deposits can also be left on your hips, stomach, and thighs after having kids, and these deposits are usually extremely hard to erase with diet and exercise alone.

If you feel overwhelmed, relax, as these are all problems that can be fixed with plastic surgery.

Mommy makeover surgery can include liposuction, a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and/or a breast lift. Your plastic surgeon can work with you to help determine which cosmetic surgery procedures might be best for your specific body. Through a combination of surgeries performed during the same appointment, usually within a matter of 3 to 4 hours, you can undo all of the cosmetic damage done to your body by having kids.

In other words, with mommy makeover surgery, you really can have it all — beautiful babies and a beautiful body.

Explore Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Options

If you’ve started to notice the wrinkles on your face getting a bit deeper or your cheeks looking a little less full, it may be time to explore cosmetic options for rejuvenating your facial appearance. Many people shy away from the idea of cosmetic procedures because they worry that the results will be too severe or unnatural.  However, today, there are numerous non-surgical options for improving the appearance of your face subtly and effectively.

While about 120,000 facelifts were performed in 2012, more than 6 million Botox® injections were administered according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Botox® and other non-surgical options are a great way to enhance your appearance in a non-permanent, customizable way. Of course, there are certain things that non-surgical treatments can’t achieve, but if you want to start slow or only want to make minor adjustments to your appearance, there are a lot of ways you can enhance the beauty of your face affordably and without major surgery.

Non-Surgical Facial Treatments are Affordable and Quick

Here are the top reasons why more people are considering non-surgical facial enhancements than ever before:

  1. Affordability. Botox® injections, dermal fillers, and chemical peels are all much less expensive than their surgical counterparts. You can achieve excellent results for a fraction of the cost with these non-surgical treatments.
  2. Speed. Many facial rejuvenation procedures can be performed in 30 minutes to an hour. In some cases, you may be able to schedule a procedure during your lunch break and be ready to return to the office shortly thereafter.
  3. Minimal downtime. Some non-surgical procedures like chemical peels require downtime, but for many of these procedures, you can see the results and feel more beautiful in a few days or even a few hours.

Facial Rejuvenation is a Great Option for Both Men and Women

Below are just a few types of procedures that both men and women are using to look younger and more attractive without surgery:

  • Botox®: Perhaps the most well-known way to rejuvenate your skin without surgery is Botox®. In a short treatment session, you can receive Botox® injections that will help diminish wrinkles and make you look younger for up to a year.
  • Dermal fillers: Dermal fillers help your face regain the structure and beauty it once had. There are many types of dermal fillers, including fat injections, fat transfers, and synthetic filler materials. These injections can give you the appearance of fuller cheeks, a more chiseled jaw line, or an overall more youthful appearance.
  • Chemical peels: A chemical peel can drastically reduce the signs of aging by diminishing wrinkles, particularly around the mouth. Chemical peels usually require four to five days of downtime, after which your skin will look significantly younger.
  • Venus Freeze® and Endermologie: These are both ways of using technology to stimulate dormant cells deep within your skin. This stimulation brings about natural improvement in the form of diminished wrinkles, firmer skin, and a more youthful glow. Both procedures are natural and can have amazing results.
