When Is the Right Time for a Mommy Makeover?

time for a mommy makeover

“When is the right time for a Mommy Makeover?” is a question that I get often. And I understand why that’s important to know. Giving birth and becoming a new mother can be exhilarating for sure, but pregnancy can also cause your body to change. Many of my patients are eager to get back to their pre-pregnancy body or to improve their body in general with some enhancements – either surgical or non-surgical. But there’s a time for everything, and the best time for a Mommy Makeover is not right after you’ve given birth. What is a Mommy Makeover?A Mommy… Read More

What Can I Expect After Breast Reduction Surgery?

what to expect after breast reduction surgery

It’s been described as having the weight of the world being lifted – not from the shoulder, but from the chest – both literally and figuratively. I’m talking about reduction mammoplasty, more commonly called breast reduction surgery.Women undergo breast reduction for many reasons – addressing both medical concerns and aesthetics. These may include chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain, restricted physical activity, skin irritation, inability to fit into bras and other clothing, and in some cases loss of self-confidence.  No doubt – having breast reduction surgery can be a big decision. But after they’ve had it done and their breasts… Read More

Good Body Fat vs Bad Body Fat: What They Do and How

good body fat vs bad body fat

Contrary to popular belief, all body fat is not bad fat. There is also good fat. And as I tell my patients, it’s important to differentiate between the two, especially if you’re trying to lose weight and get healthier. All fat is not created equal and putting on too much of the wrong type of body fat can lead to some serious health issues.Good Body Fat vs Bad Body FatOur bodies are basically made up of two types of fat: subcutaneous fat – the fat that sits under the skin on our thighs, arms, and buttocks – and visceral fat,… Read More

When you think about the signs of aging, more than likely, facial wrinkles and fine lines come to mind.
