Give Yourself the Gift of Plastic Surgery This Mother’s Day

As a mom, you’re constantly putting the needs of others before your own. But this Mother’s Day, take a break and do something for yourself, like enhancing your body and confidence with plastic surgery! There are many procedures available that focus on common body concerns of moms. Whether you’re looking to restore your pre-pregnancy figure, or just want to enhance your look, there’s a treatment option for you.

Breast Augmentation

Your breasts can go through changes after pregnancy or as you age, resulting in a loss of fullness. But you can restore volume with a breast augmentation using customized implants. You can opt for a modest increase to fill out loose skin, or achieve a curvier look with larger implants. You’ll also be able to choose the material, texture, and placement of your implants, giving you the look that fits your desired aesthetic and body type.

Breast Lift

If you feel your breasts are sagging or just aren’t as perky as they were before you had a child, you might opt for a breast lift procedure. A breast lift can reposition the breasts to a more youthful appearance and remove excess skin that has become stretched. Many women find satisfying results from a breast lift alone, or might choose to combine it with implants.

Tummy Tuck

Your tummy is likely the area that was most affected by pregnancy. Even those who haven’t had children have a difficult time toning this area! You might experience loose skin and sagging tissue, affecting your body contour. With a tummy tuck, you can achieve a flat abdominal area by tightening the underlying muscles and removing excess tissue.

Liposuction

If you have good skin elasticity but struggle to eliminate pockets of stubborn fat, you might gift yourself with liposuction! Liposuction uses very small incisions to break up and remove fat, helping you achieve a sculpted body contour. This can be used in the abdominal area, flanks, buttocks, upper arms, thighs and more! You can also choose to combine liposuction with another procedure to optimize your results.

Mommy Makeover

Do you find yourself wishing for a full-body rejuvenation? A mommy makeover allows you to combine any of the above procedures and more to enhance many areas of your body at once. The procedure is customizable to meet your unique body concerns and goals.

Celebrity-Inspired Procedures: When Does It Go Too Far?

Many individuals are inspired by celebrities when considering plastic surgery. Maybe they love the way Meghan Markle’s nose looks, or desire Kylie Jenner’s lips. However, what happens when a patient becomes obsessed with looking like a certain celebrity and keeps coming back for more surgery- should the surgeon refuse procedures?

Plastic surgeons understand that many patients will find certain celebrities attractive and will want to emulate their facial features. Many patents will bring photos of celebrities to their surgeon as a point of reference. While in the past, surgeons were taught not to treat patients who wished to look like celebrities, this idea has shifted to be commonplace. Now, most surgeons welcome the idea of patients bringing in photos of what they would like to have done. This allows for a conversation to discuss whether what they desire is possible for their anatomy, and if not, for a personalized plan to be created to help them reach their individual aesthetic goals.

When Admiration turns to Obsession

While surgeons are aware of a patient’s right to choose whether or not plastic surgery is something they wish to undergo, they have the power to say no to a client. There are some patients who begin their plastic surgery journey wishing to look similar to a certain celebrity, but then they begin to become obsessed with looking exactly like them. When this occurs, surgeons must distinguish between individuals who are aiming for self-improvement and those who are obsessed. In cases where the obsession is unhealthy, surgeons must turn these patients away.

And while these ethical doctors will turn obsessed patients away, there will always be surgeons who will operate. Overall, patients should trust their surgeon if he or she tells them that it is time to slow down on the plastic surgery procedures. Remember- plastic surgery should help you to look like the best version of yourself; not someone else.
