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.
