The term “Mommy Makeover” has become a buzz word in the cosmetic surgery industry. Daytime talk shows devote entire shows to the mommy makeover. A simple Google search for the term “mommy makeover” nets 691,000 results. Patients call us daily asking if we perform the mommy makeover. It all begs the question, what exactly is a mommy makeover? In short, it’s whatever the patient wants it to be. We have so many technologies and modalities, combined with our skilled surgeons in each of our four Chicago cosmetic surgery centers in Chicago’s Gold Coast, Oak Brook, Arlington Heights and Naperville that our scope of procedures reaches far and wide.
Customize your Mommy Makeover with…
As I mentioned, the mommy makeover can be whatever you’d like it to be. Perhaps nursing one or more children has affected the appearance of your breasts. That’s where a breast augmentation, or a breast lift, can help restore the youthful appearance of your breasts.
Or maybe carrying one or more children through pregnancies has left you with excess abdominal skin. An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck as it’s commonly known, can tighten your abdominal muscles and loose skin. A “mini-tuck” can help with the small lower abdominal area of loose skin. We even have non-surgical modalities like Viora that can retract loose skin in some patients.
Or maybe some of that baby weight just didn’t go away after hard work, a good diet and exercise. No matter where that weight might be, inner thighs, love handles, the bra pad or abdomen as examples, liposuction can eliminate these fatty pockets.
Or maybe you’re a mom who has succumbed, as we all will by the way, to the natural aging process. Thus, you look in the mirror and see wrinkles and loose facial skin. If that’s the case, it might be time to consider my S-Lift (soft face lift). My number one goal when performing the S-Lift is to provide the patient with a natural and youthful appearance. When you visit during your consultation, you’ll soon realize that I pride myself on avoiding the leathery, uber-tight face lift we’ve all seen. I want my S-Lift patients to attend that next family function and hear, “Wow, you look great. Did you cut your hair? Did you try new make up? What’s different about you?”
Minimally Invasive Facial Improvement
You’ve heard me say it before in this space, but the results I’ve seen with my new Thermi-RF procedure have been remarkable. The facial skin tightening results are simply the best I’ve seen from such a minimally invasive procedure. It’s become especially effective treating loose, wrinkled neck skin.
Botox and common fillers like Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane are the perfect compliments to a face lift, and they stand alone as outstanding anti-aging treatments on a fraction of the budget.
Customize Your Mommy Makeover
Again, I think it’s important that my patients customize their own mommy makeovers. You tell us what your end goal is, and we can combine two or more of our procedures to provide you with that result. Define the mommy makeover for yourself, and leave the intricacies of the procedure and how you’ll achieve that end goal to your physician.
