Happy Mother's Day to you moms. As a mother of two young children, I can appreciate the
taxing effect motherhood can have on your body. Between sagging breasts, the muffin-top,
and tired eyes, motherhood takes its toll. Treat yourself this Mother's Day to your very own
This May we celebrate you with some exciting specials.
Happy Mother's Day!

"My little girl is now 2. I have worked out consistently since she was 3 months old, and could not get rid of that extra skin around my tummy. Finally, I gave-in and got my tummy tuck and liposuction. Now, I feel like a whole new woman!" - Tina F.
One of my specialties, and a favorite among moms is body contouring. The procedure helps
me appreciate the art form of the human body. Enhancing the curves and optimal shape of a
person's individual body is perhaps one of the best artistic representations of cosmetic surgery.
Patients instantly feel beautiful; their clothes fit better; they can wear the trends the always
loved; they stand straight, tall and proud and exude a new self-confidence. Liposuction leaves
little to no scarring and is relatively inexpensive. A simple pin-prick incision and a few weeks of
soreness, is well-worth the radiance that patient's project following the procedure.
After pregnancy and dramatic weight gain and loss, the skin along the belly area can sometimes
remain sagged and stretched. The tissue between the abdominal muscles, called the fascia, stretches during pregnancy - as this tissue is not elastic, the damage is permanent. The resulting gaps create a loose appearance. A tummy tuck surgically repairs the fascia, solidifying the "gaps" between the muscles and removes the excess sagging skin. A dramatic result, abdominoplasty can often make the
stomach area look even better than pre-kids.
After breastfeeding my two children, I, like most mothers, realized pregnancy and
breastfeeding completely changes a woman's breasts - rendering them with little volume on
top. Another popular mommy makeover (and one of my favorite procedures) is a breast lift
with implants. Deflated breasts are renewed and reshaped with a lift that allows symmetry and
a small implant to increase volume on the top. A natural approach to keeping the cup size you
loved, but in the shape you had pre-kids.

Recently, HealthNewsDigest.com put out an article compiling 10 of the top tips to achieve a more satisfying night of sleep. Below are a few their tips that I would put at the top of my list:
1. Break the napping habit. Taking a nap during the day can harm your ability to sleep soundly at night. If you are in desperate need of a nap, keep it to a brief 15-20 minutes at least five hours before you go to bed.
2. Skip the Afternoon Caffeine. Consuming caffeine later in the day can have incredibly adverse effects in your ability to fall asleep. Cutting back on the afternoon coffee will ensure that you are more ready for sleep in the evening.
3. Exercise during the day. Exercise during the day will help put your body in the position to be more ready for a good night of sleep.

What's Hot & What's Not
New Year, New You - The Trends in Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery
More than ever before, we've seen some unique changes in the industry. The over-done, over fixed look that stigmatized plastic surgery in the past, is giving way to a more natural less invasive approach. Some trends I've seen in recently in my practice:
Trend #1: Non-Surgical Facelifts
We have realized women who take care of themselves in their 30's-40's can avoid major surgical facelifts in their 50's and 60's. From liquid treatments such as Botox, Juvederm and Restalyne to lasers that have gained respect and FDA approval, women are avoiding more major surgical treatments, allowing less downtime and a more natural, softer effect.
Trend #2: Bro-Tox
Wrinkles are not sexist. Men have jumped on the Botox train more than ever and the trend will gain momentum in 2014. Dubbed Bro-Tox, men have turned to Botox to help stay current in the job workplace as well as the dating world. The key to Bro-tox is to not overdo it. Staying distinguished but not frozen is key.
Trend #3: Vectra Technology
My most favorite trend of 2013 was the influx of technology in the cosmetic and plastic surgery industry. VECTRA XT 3D is the latest and most advanced imaging system to help patients visualize their procedure outcome by taking high definition photos of the patients and allowing manipulation to determine a final representation of the post-surgery results.
Trend #4: Breast Downsizing
While breast augmentation continues to be the most popular surgical procedure, women are returning to a more natural size. B and C cups are gaining more popularity than the past where D and DD+ were more desired. Women that have previously had large implants are asking for them to be removed or downsized.
Trend #5: Divorcee Surgery
Women re-entering the dating world after 10, 15, 20 years are finding it hard to compete with younger women in the dating pool. Many women who have divorced or been widowed are seeking breast lifts, tummy tucks, and facelifts to give them a more youthful appearance and the confidence to re-enter the dating world.
"Over the holidays I had a night out with some of my girlfriends. After seeing the pictures, I thought -- Wow, we look tired and old!" - Casey B.
An easy way to freshen up your look is to consider some non-invasive procedures like Botox or Juvederm. Renowned for the most natural appearing Botox and filler results in Orange County, Dr. Lawton specializes in strategically erasing tired eyes, fine lines and wrinkles. Patients don't look "frozen" in time - but look well-rested, glowing and fabulous.

There has been significant fanfare around Michelle Obama's recent interview in People Magazine:
Tomorrow, Michelle Obama will hit a milestone: she’s turning 50! One surprising thing she’s not ruling out? Plastic surgery or Botox. “Women should have the freedom to do whatever they need to do to feel good about themselves,” she tells People magazine. “Right now, I don’t imagine that I would go that route, but I’ve also learned to never say never.”
Immediately, this interview blew up in the press. Every news outlet acted shocked at her statement. Why? Because plastic surgery has always been a secret. The did she or didn't she? Good genes, or good docs? Media is always trying to exploit any public figure with shame for having plastic surgery. As a result, women feel guilt and embarrassment about having plastic surgery and most certainly never want to admit they would consider it, let alone do it.
Again, I ask: why? As a woman in this business dominated by men -- I find myself often in an uphill battle against the "perception" of plastic surgery. Certainly, it doesn't help when plastic surgeons continue to show up in various reality TV shows putting our industry in a not-so-positive light. But,I digress....
I continue to find negativity around an industry based on helping people feel their best. Granted there are those with mental issues using plastic surgery in an unhealthy way. And, unfortunately, my field has plenty of doctors willing to operate on anyone for a buck. And, more, unfortunately, those cases end up being the billboard for plastic surgery. But, every industry has bad seeds -- whether its Wall Street, banking, mortgage brokers, fashion industry, etc. As a mother of two young children, a wife, friend, daughter, sister .... I'm as "normal" as they come. And I assure you, there are plenty of plastic surgeons like me, but we are not the face of the plastic surgeons these days-- contributing to this negative image.
