Some of you may be familiar with the popular mommy makeover procedure. Best known as a combination of breast and body contouring procedures (performed in one comprehensive surgery), mommy makeovers address common physical changes mothers can experience after pregnancy and childbirth to restore a pre-baby body. Now, we’d like to introduce to you the Grammy makeover – the newest combo procedure helping grandmothers and mature women everywhere get their pre-child/grandchild body back!You can think of a Grammy makeover as a supercharged mommy makeover – offering a wide variety of face, hand, arm, breast and body contouring procedures to combine into one procedure. After we determine your cosmetic goals, we’ll take a look at the procedures that will help you achieve your ultimate plastic surgery results. For part one of my Grammy makeover series, I would like to start by covering some of the options that Grammy makeover patients have.
Grammy makeovers can address a multitude of concerns. From creating a well-rested look by eliminating fat pockets and excess tissue with eyelid surgery to saying goodbye to sagging skin and wrinkles with a neck lift or facelift, Grammy makeovers can start with breathing new life into the face. To compliment your overall look, cosmetic injectables like Botox® or facial fillers like Juvéderm® may be a non-surgical addition to your Grammy makeover. As we head to the breasts, we will evaluate their look, in relation to your body frame (are they sagging, too big, too small or all the above?) and determine which breast enhancement procedure will give you bigger (or smaller), perkier breasts – depending on your preference. If “bat wings” keep you hiding your arms, you may consider an arm lift to remove the extra skin and create a more toned appearance. To create a sculpted midsection, free of a stomach pooch or weakened abdominal muscles, tummy tuck (also known as abdominoplasty) using the scarpa fascia technique may be what you need. Finally, let’s not forget about the hands; what better way to complete your Grammy makeover than with hand rejuvenation using Radiesse®? What’s unique about the Grammy makeover is that it’s 100% customizable; for you and only you. There isn’t a pre-determined package to limit the type of results you want; the combination possibilities with a Grammy makeover are endless!
As your double board-certified surgeon, I want to help restore the face and body to its once youthful look. Natural-looking plastic surgery results that highlight each patient’s beautiful existing features are important, so creating a surgical plan that best suits them uniquely is vital. As an added bonus just as with mommy makeovers, Grammy makeovers have low overall complication rates (this is largely in part to working with an experienced, board-certified surgeon because not all doctors have the same expertise and skillset). Grammy makeovers also offer the same benefit as mommy makeovers in regards to what patients save – time and money. By combining procedures into one, patients reduce their overall recovery time (imagine having 3-5 separate surgeries spanned over several months, or years, versus once) as well as extra costs associated with surgical fees that can certainly add up with each individual procedure.
Plastic surgery doesn’t have to be a hard-reaching goal; you just need to know your options!
