Top 5 Problems our Mommy Makeover Patients Tell Us
Problem #1 Skin Tone and Texture, Worry Lines.
The best solution for improving skin tone and texture does not require surgery. Our mommy makeover patients rapidly benefit from Broadband light therapy in conjunction with medical skin care, neuromodulator therapy, and Dermal fillers (Juvederm Ultra XC®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, Belotero®, etc.).
For deeper facial lines and wrinkles, we also routinely add fractional laser resurfacing. Use of fractional laser therapy in conjunction with other treatments routinely offers transformational results, and can rejuvenate stressed skin. All of these procedures can be done without any invasive anesthesia, and with minimal discomfort and downtime.
Problem #2 Droopy Breasts.
Our mommy makeover patients will commonly request some form of breast augmentation, breast lift, or a combination breast augmentation with breast lift. Please note that, while using breast implants during a breast lift is routine, it is not a requirement. Our patients are individually evaluated by Dr. Alan Durkin, our Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon. The type of procedure chosen depends upon the individual anatomy and the goals of the patient. Breast surgery procedures are incredibly effective in recreating the ideal female breast shape and size. All of our mommy makeover patients are offered MD administered anesthesia at our private cosmetic surgery center.
The choice of breast implant is an intimate decision that requires time and effort from both the plastic surgeon and patient. Dr. Durkin personally assists in helping you to choose the perfect implant for your body shape and size. Our patients are given the opportunity to try on different sized breast implants at the time of their mommy makeover consultation, and our entire staff ensures that all of your questions are answered during your consult.
Problem #3 Wrinkly Face and Neck.
A solution for wrinkly face and neck can be approached either surgically or nonsurgically. Surgical procedures offer more durable results, and in some patients, plastic surgery may be more cost effective over time. However, many mommy makeover patients may be treated without surgical facelifting.
For facial wrinkles, we commonly employ fractional laser skin resurfacing in combination with a liquid facelift. In the neck, a tightening procedure must be utilized. For patients interested in the best possible result, a limited incision facelift is the way to go for definitive neck and facial rejuvenation. In patients that are not yet ready for surgery, we use the SideLaze laser platform for fat reduction and neck skin tightening. Either approach offers a safe solution to wrinkly face and necks with limited post-procedural discomfort or downtime.
Problem #4 Muffin Top.
There are a number of approaches to the muffin top. For small muffin tops, the use of laser liposuction can provide significant tightening of the skin and fat reduction. For large muffin tops, patients may require either a limited incision tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), or a traditional abdominoplasty in conjuction with liposuction. These procedures restore the natural feminine contours to the abdomen, rejuvenate the belly button, and remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen, flanks, hips, and thighs. All of which are mommy makeover must haves!
When it comes to sculpting the female abdomen, our bias is to provide the best possible outcome with the least invasive procedure in the safest possible setting. We individualize each abdomen, and specialize in both traditional and minimally invasive approaches to contouring.
Problem #5 Cellulite.
We are the only provider of Cellulaze on the Treasure Coast, and are well on our way to becoming a international center of excellence in the treatment of cellulite. This revolutionary medical technology is the only FDA approved medical device for the treatment of cellulite. By combining laser liposuction with advanced safety protocols, we can safely remove cellulite in one session with permanent results.
