Undergoing a mommy makeover can be a great way for patients to turn back the clock and rejuvenate their figure. By combining three body contouring procedures (liposuction, my Scarpa fascia tummy tuck for waist enhancement, and a cosmetic breast procedure), a mommy makeover is designed to help women improve their self-esteem by re-achieving their pre-baby body. But for some patients, the aesthetic improvement they desire may require more than just a mommy makeover. This is precisely why I also offer my mommy makeover patients the choice to upgrade their procedure to a grammy makeover. The grammy makeover builds upon the mommy makeover by including a-la-carte options for specific areas of improvement to create a compounding effect and long-lasting results. Part of what patients love so much about these procedures is having the freedom to customize their procedure options based on their own unique aesthetic needs. But to fully grasp the power of a grammy makeover, it’s import to fully understand all of your potential procedure options. That’s why I am happy to answer a few questions about some of the common procedures that patients undergo as part of their grammy makeover.
Do I need to be a certain age to undergo a grammy makeover?
Don’t get thrown off by the name. You don’t need to be a grammy to undergo a grammy makeover. The name is just meant to imply that the combination of procedures is able to help patients by providing even more comprehensive results than a mommy makeover can, whether that is due to your age or other factors. If you are old enough to undergo a mommy makeover, you are old enough to undergo a grammy makeover.
What facial procedures can be included in a grammy makeover?
As long as the patient is healthy enough to undergo her desired procedures (we will determine this during the pre-surgery consultation), she will have her choice of cosmetic surgery procedures for the face. This includes a facelift, eyelid surgery, browlift, or neck lift depending on her personal preference.
Can non-surgical treatments be included as part of a grammy makeover?
Absolutely. One of the great things about the grammy makeover is that it allows patients to not only combine cosmetic surgery procedures, but to add additional nonsurgical treatments as well. Grammy makeover patients can choose from our full menu of cosmetic injectable treatments including Botox® and facial fillers. Non-surgical skin care treatments like laser skin resurfacing and skin tightening can also be used. Some patients also add fat transfer injections as part of their grammy makeover. Fat transfer safely processes and injects fat removed during liposuction into areas of the face and body that may be lacking in volume like the cheeks, hands, breasts or buttocks.
I pride myself on offering all my patients every option available to help them achieve the new appearance that they seek. Perhaps no procedure offers more options than a grammy makeover. However, not every patient is healthy enough to undergo multiple procedures at once. This is why it is so important to speak with a board-certified plastic to make sure that a grammy makeover is possible for you.
