If you are a woman, the odds are that there have always been a few issues regarding your appearance that have bothered you. Maybe it was the size, shape and/or asymmetry of your breasts that made you feel very self-conscious and not very sexy. It could have been that pooch in the middle of your abdomen that seemed grotesquely large. Or possibly it was that mini-muffin top or broad hips just didn’t make the grade for you. Whatever you thought was horrible back then you long for now.

Why is that?

Because you have had one or more children – and they have DESTROYED your body!

Yup! Ironically, in the scheme of things, those were your golden years of beauty. Now you are older, more tired and believe that negative adjectives like flabby, droopy, deflated, broad and fat well describe your appearance. You feel frustrated and even more self-conscious and less attractive now. It may seem almost hopeless but…

You do have options to help correct the devastation that pregnancies have wreaked on your body. In fact, you may even end up looking better in many ways than you did prior to becoming pregnant – and feeling better about yourself as well.

How is that possible?

A mommy makeover.

As explained in the Mommy Makeover section, the most common procedures performed to deal with the physical changes following pregnancy include cosmetic breast surgery such as a breast augmentation with or without a breast lift or even a breast reduction – combined with an abdominal procedure such as a full tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) or mini tummy tuck. Liposuction and other procedures can also be performed concurrently.

The results from mommy makeovers can be overwhelmingly positive and immensely rewarding. They can help a woman regain confidence, self-esteem, and feel happier as well as attractive and sexy again. A patient of mine who underwent a mommy makeover, shares her positive sentiments in the following video:

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.

We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.

For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.

In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.

We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
