naked girl sunset 2More and more mothers all around the country are considering a mommy makeover. After childbirth, many women’s bodies are simply not what they used to be. A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures that aim to give a mother the body she desires.

After consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Reps Sundin or Dr. Burton Sundin, you may have decided to include liposuction, breast augmentation or a tummy tuck as part of your overall mommy makeover.

Given the extensive nature of a mommy makeover, one of the more important steps of the process is recovery. In the first few days after your procedure, you may have been prescribed pain medication and given careful instructions. Take care to avoid trauma to operated areas, and do your best to follow the provided instructions—your diligence during this step will greatly affect your experience.

Arm lift surgery, technically known as brachioplasty, offers patients an opportunity to enhance the shape and contour of their arms. Aging, massive weight loss and heredity can cause the skin to sag all over the body. For many people, excessive drooping and flaccid skin dangling underneath the arm can be of particular concern and a source of self-consciousness.

An arm lift, combined with skills and expertise of board-certified plastic surgeons like Drs. Reps and Burton Sundin, can help you achieve your beauty goals. One of the biggest steps you can take to ensure a successful experience is to prepare for your recovery. Similar to many surgeries that involve incisions, arm lifts will require you to delay any strenuous activity immediately after the procedure. Stitches, bandages and dressings will be applied to the incision area, and it will be important for you to avoid any trauma to the area.

Though each person’s tummy tuck experience may vary, there are some general steps that you should know about. Being prepared and aware of the process can help alleviate any nervousness and improve your tummy tuck experience.

The first step of the procedure is the administration of anesthesia for your comfort. The dosage and type, either intravenous or general, will be based on the doctor’s recommendation. The next step is the incision. The type and size of the incision will depend on the technique chosen by the doctor, which would have already been discussed with you. Through the incision, weakened abdominal muscles are tightened with sutures while excess fat and skin are removed. The incision is closed and then you begin your recovery phase. Within a week or two, the results of the procedure will be much more apparent as swelling goes away.

Dr. Burton and Dr. Reps Sundin are experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons who can guide you through the steps of a tummy tuck in greater detail.

There are a lot of aspects to consider for your facelift. Facelifts were created to combat the signs of aging and enhance specific areas of the face so they appear more refreshed and youthful.

Board-certified plastic surgeons such as Dr. Burton Sundin or Dr. Reps Sundin identify landmarks of the face that are the most prominent when it comes to signs of aging. One of the biggest signs of aging comes in the formation of a jowl.

A jowl appears to be a sagging jaw line caused by the ptosis (sagging) of the cheeks. There are a few different techniques that can solve the problem of sagging cheeks. There are traditional facelifts and composite facelifts, for example, but it will come down to a decision between you and the practitioner based on what makes sense for your goals as well as facial structure.
