When I think of a Mommy Makeover, the first thing that comes to my mind is cosmetic surgery. More specifically with the patients I see in Austin, it’s breast augmentation, breast lift, and tummy tuck surgery. These procedures allow me to correct distortions in breast shape, loss of breast volume, and the unpleasant tummy changes that often plague women after having children.
So, can a Mommy Makeover be non-surgical? Yes! Let me explain. A non-surgical Mommy Makeover focuses largely on correcting some of the other unwanted signs of motherhood.
“What are those brown spots, Mom?”
Dark, irregular patches commonly found on the cheeks, nose, and forehead are also known as the “mask of pregnancy,” or, more precisely, hyperpigmentation patches or melasma. A series of chemical peels, the daily use of a skin lightening agent like SkinMedica®’s Lytera®, and daily sunscreen can reverse this problem in the majority of patients.
“Mom, why are you always frowning?”
Glabellar frown lines, or those “11’s” between your eyebrows, are often a sign of normal motherhood frustrations and child rearing and can be easily treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic. BOTOX softens these unwanted frown lines and elevates the brow, giving a more rested and less frustrated appearance.
In addition to chemical peels, HydraFacial™ treatments can reduce pore size, exfoliate, and nourish the skin with powerful antioxidants in order to give you beautiful, healthy, glowing skin.
Also in the non-surgical makeover department of plastic surgery are injectable fillers. Volume restoration of the lips and cheekbones can restore balance and reduce the outward appearance of exhaustion that can help Mom to feel better during her occasional glance into the mirror commonly done in the car on the way to dropping the kids off at school or picking them up from after-school activities like baseball or cheerleading.
