Non-Surgical Mommy Makeover Options
Pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding can take a heavy toll on a woman’s body. Many women may develop excess fat deposits in certain areas of the body, the skin may start sagging in the abdominal or breast area, and conditions such as cellulite or stretch marks may also appear. A cosmetic surgeon can provide several surgical procedures as a part of mommy makeover to correct these conditions.
However, if the woman is reluctant to undergo a procedure that involves the knife, alternative non-surgical procedures may be recommended as a part of mommy makeover. Dr. Paul McCluskey is an eminent plastic surgeon providing mommy makeover and various other procedures. Dr. McCluskey receives patients from Atlanta, GA and surrounding communities.
One of the most popular non-surgical fat reduction procedures available today is CoolSculpting by Zeltiq. This procedure can be used to address excess fat tissue in the tummy area, buttocks, thighs, back, breasts, and upper arms to reduce stubborn fat deposits, and produce enhanced body contours. The cosmetic surgeon may recommend this procedure if the woman is keen to reduce unwanted fats that may have developed in certain areas following pregnancy.
CoolSculpting involves a unique cooling process that freezes the targeted fat cells, eventually causing their destruction. These disintegrated cells gradually exit from the body in a natural way, and the patient achieves a slimmer, more youthful looking figure. CoolSculpting does not involve any cuts, incisions, or even injections, and provides natural looking, sustainable results.
Laser Skin Tightening
In some cases, the woman may develop loose or sagging skin in the face, neck, abdomen, hips or other parts. While the plastic surgeon can reduce fat pockets with CoolSculpting, but for loose skin, a procedure such as laser skin tightening may be used. In this technique, the surgeon will apply laser energy to the affected areas in order to stimulate the production of fresh collagen in the deeper skin layers.
Collagen production will cause the skin to firm up from within, and create natural looking skin tightening outcomes. Typical conditions that can be corrected with laser skin tightening include reduction of excess abdominal skin, sagging skin on the arms and knees, wrinkles and fine lines on the face, under eye sagging and neck sagging. Dr. McCluskey is a leading surgeon providing various surgical and non-surgical treatment options to patients in Atlanta, GA and nearby areas.
Injectable Procedures for the Face
Facial rejuvenation can be achieved in a non-surgical way as a part of a mommy makeover procedure. Some women will tend to develop wrinkles, creases and folds in the face and chin following a pregnancy, while some others may experience under eye bags and wrinkles around the brows and forehead. These conditions can be corrected with a variety of FDA approved dermal fillers and neuro modulators such as Botox.
Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse are highly popular soft tissue fillers that can produce near-instant facial rejuvenation results by filling up the wrinkles and stimulating collagen production in the skin. Botox injections may be applied to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the brows and at the outer corners of
