Spring is here, Mother’s Day is around the corner and this is the perfect time to consider a Modern Mommy Makeover. Motherhood is a glorious female role but pregnancy and childbirth can change your body in ways that you can’t reverse with diet and exercise alone. Hormone fluctuations can have a negative impact on your skin and hair, leading to loss of collagen and thinning.
Our modern approach to a Mommy Makeover is a highly personalized treatment plan that addresses all of these concerns. It is a customized combination of non-surgical and surgical procedures that can rejuvenate your skin and hair, and restore your pre-pregnancy body or even improve it!
What can be improved with a Mommy Makeover?
- Breast Changes
- Excessively large breasts interfering with your active lifestyle
- Sagging or ‘deflated’ breasts with loss of volume and size
- Enlarged areolae or prominent nipples after breast feeding
- Body Changes
- Loose skin, stretch marks and excess fat on your belly
- Indented C-section scar with loose skin hanging over it
- Stubborn fat in the love handles, hips and thighs
- External genital changes, including enlarged labia
- Facial Aging
- Dull skin, loss of fullness
- Fine lines, especially around the eyes
- Hair Loss
- Thinning, dull hair
What are the procedures and treatments?
The traditional MMO is a surgical procedure consisting of breast surgery, such as augmentation, lift or reduction, in combination with a tummy tuck and liposuction. Genital surgery, such as a labiaplasty, can be performed at the same time.
We can further customize your treatment plan with state-of-the art techniques such as breast augmentation with fat transfer instead of implants, a mini-tummy tuck or a Brazilian buttock lift for a curvier figure.
Non-surgical options for body contouring are also available, such as CoolSculpting for permanent, non-surgical fat reduction and TempSure Radiofrequency treatments for skin tightening on the body and face.
For getting back glowing skin on your face, neck and décolleté, we offer a full range of Medical Aesthetic treatments in our Latham MedSpa. A medical grade skincare program can do wonders with little to no downtime. Our aestheticians may recommend Hydrafacials or collagen stimulating micro-needling treatments, along with the regenerative benefits of PRP (platelet rich plasma). Our new GoldenGlow micro-infusion is a great way to get glowing skin fast! It combines the benefits of micro-needling with the delivery of biologics directly into your skin for an airbrushed look that lasts for months. Injectable treatments, such as Botox and fillers can also improve fine lines and volume loss in your skin.
PRP treatments are also helpful in reversing hair loss. These no-downtime injections using your own plasma have been shown to improve recovery of weak or dormant hair follicles. In combinations with nutraceuticals that we can recommend, your hair has a better chance of recovering to its pre-pregnancy glory.
Today’s modern MMO can be anything that helps you feel confident in your skin! We’d love to help. Reach out to us for more information or to schedule your consultation.
