How to Regain your Pre-Baby Body!

Regaining your Pre-Baby Body!

Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding are experiences that many women look forward to and enjoy. However, although you may be happy being a mother, there are some changes to the body that you may not be pleased with. The body changes quite drastically throughout the pregnancy and breastfeeding – the breasts and abdomen stretch, and the skin may lose elasticity which sometimes does not naturally return.

Women who have used all measures to lose weight often turn to cosmetic plastic surgery to achieve their desired goals. Typically, patients choose to undergo a combination of procedures in order to recapture their pre-pregnancy shape. The most frequently combined procedures include breast lift surgery or augmentation, traditional and/or laser liposuction and a tummy tuck, especially if their abdomen did not retract or if they underwent a C-section during delivery.

The combination of these procedures can be life changing as they help restore confidence and femininity by restoring the breasts to a more youthful shape and position, and tightening and flattening the abdomen. During a private consultation patients are able to discuss their needs and it will be determined if they are a candidate for the procedures; it is typically only advised to have the procedures if there is not plan to have more children.

The gift of plastic surgery?

The gift of plastic surgery? Is that Acceptable?

You may have heard of cosmetic surgery being given as a gift in the past – perhaps a husband gave his wife a breast augmentation for Christmas or a Rhinoplasty for Mother’s Day ? At first glance, this may seem inappropriate, but why since many receive gift certificates to other establishments like spas, restaurants and stores?

The reason is that it’s a little more complicated than it seems at first. Most plastic surgeons draw the line at a consultation as the only reasonable plastic surgery gift. However, if the doctor and patient agree that a procedure is reasonable, and the patient desires the procedure then certainly the patient can have a third party pay for it. At that point, there are only financial obligations, but not ethical issues.

Note to the men out there. Don’t surprise your significant other with a nose job that she has never mentioned before or isn’t on board with – you might end up in the dog house. Send her to the spa instead.

Juvederm: Minimize the effects of aging without going under the “Knife”

For those men and women who are looking for a way to restore their fresh, plump, youthful face without going under the “knife” – facial fillers like Juvederm are an excellent option. Whether the patient is seeking fuller lips and cheeks or a more defined chin, aesthetic enhancements like Juvederm make it entirely possible.

Juvederm is the smooth gel filler that is used to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose by adding volume to the hollowed areas. Commonly injected areas are the nasolabial folds (vertical lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth), marionette lines (vertical lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin) and vertical lip lines (facial wrinkles around the lips). With just one treatment, it is possible to get smooth and natural-looking results that can last up to a year.

The fact that Juvederm is so fast to administer and can be done in a regular in office visit, makes it even more desirable to my patients who are looking for a non-invasive way to restore their youth. And, the fact that the results last for up to a year is an additional bonus!

Everyone will notice but no one will know.
