Muffin Top Tummy Bulge: Fix it

January 25th, 2019

Muffin Top Fix

Abdominoplasty surgery or the Tummy Tuck procedure remains in the TOP 5 most requested cosmetic surgeries. Tummy tucks also rank second, following breast enlargement in overall patient satisfaction. Reasons why patients seek surgery include loss of muscle and skin tone, sagging skin and a  tummy pooch or bulge due to pregnancy or fluctuations of weight gain/loss. Patients that I see complain about the resulting appearance to their tummies, commonly called muffin top. Surgery is sometimes required to repair these changes when exercise and diet have failed. The tummy Nipntuck procedure uses liposuction, surgical skin removal, and/or muscle tightening to achieve a flatter stomach. My patients reflect the national norm in reporting great satisfaction after having this cosmetic surgery. When this procedure is combined with breast restoration following pregnancy, it is referred to as the “Mommy Makeover.” I strongly recommend doing each procedure separately to insure proper healing and minimizing complications that might arise when doing both at the same time. Mommy Makeovers have become more popular in recent years as more women no longer accept the physical changes that sometimes occur to their body, often caused by the residual result of their pregnancy.

To watch our television interview with my patient (a mother or 3) about her experience and how it changed her self-image following surgery, watch here.

Patient Inspired our “Flat Screen” Radio Ad

January 17th, 2019

Flat Screen. TV

My name is Melissa. I’m in my 30 years of living, I’ve never had any sort of surgery. I delivered all of my 3 children naturally and nursed all of them for a full year. I would say I took pretty good care of myself while pregnant. I exercised. I ate decently. But there was still a little side of my body that never reverted back to my pre-mommy days. My husband and I decided quite quickly after we had our third child, with a count of 1 girl and 2 boys, all under the age of 5, that we were DONE! The chapter of baby-making was closing and the “Restoring of me” chapter was beginning. In fact, the wind was blowing the pages open.

I never ever second-guessed my decision to nurse my children. I went 14 months with my first-born, 8 months with my middle child and a full year with my last born. I even used a breast pump as well, to keep the supply and demand up. And now 5 years later, I look in the mirror and look for the missing boobs I once had. I long for those days when I was nursing, because my breasts were at their prettiest. I had cleavage… I had shape… I had my husband’s eyes locked on me… Now fast forward 5 years and I’ve got nothing, yet!

At the time I came to terms with pursuing breast augmentation, my husband, as well, was pursuing a new 52″ flat screen TV, with a 5 speaker surround sound system. “Wow honey, isn’t the television we currently have just 5 years old?” Of course it was! “And so we’re getting all new everything because why?” I asked. Oh, because he wanted to. And then that is when it became clear to me. I, too, can have something I want and it certainly wasn’t going to be anything flat! Listen to the radio ad here.
