Mother’s Day Specials this May at Southern Plastic Surgery

Mother’s Day is almost here. What better time to think about all the special women in our lives? If you’re stuck trying to come up with the perfect Mother’s Day gift, have you considered a mommy makeover? The mommy makeover at Southern Plastic Surgery (SPS) is a customizable procedure that combines a tummy tuck (using Dr. Whiteman’s Scarpa fascia technique that is able to provide additional benefits by improving the contour of the waist), liposuction, and a cosmetic breast procedure to sculpt a new, trimmer figure that will give the Mom in your life something to smile about. We also offer grammy makeovers, which build-upon the mommy makeover by allowing patients to add additional a-la-carte procedures of their choice, including a face lift, neck lift, or fat transfer injection depending on their personal aesthetic goals. If you’re still shopping around for more ideas, allow us to present our May specials and promotions at SPS and Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center.

Turn Back the Clock with a Grammy Makeover

Maintaining a youthful appearance can be challenging, especially for women of a certain age. While diet, exercise and anti-aging skin care treatments can be effective in helping women look younger, more retirement-aged women than ever are turning to cosmetic surgical procedures to help reverse the visible signs of aging like deep wrinkles and sagging skin. Cosmetic surgery for Americans age 65 or higher has increased by almost 80% over the last decade according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. If you’re considering cosmetic surgery to help turn back the clock, might I recommend my unique Grammy Makeover?

Turn Back the Clock with a Grammy MakeoverInitially inspired by a conversation I had with a patient, my unique Grammy Makeover puts your cosmetic procedure options in your hands. The Grammy Makeover focuses on combining face, breast and body procedures, custom-tailored into one comprehensive surgical plan, to battle the comprehensive effects of aging on the face and body. Building upon the Mommy Makeover, the Grammy Makeover procedure includes a-la-carte options for specific areas of improvement to create a compounding effect and long-lasting results.

A Mommy Makeover utilizes a tummy tuck (using my special Scarpa fascia technique), liposuction and a cosmetic breast surgery like breast augmentation, breast reduction or breast lift, in an effort to tighten the abdominal muscles, reduce fat and help remedy the effects of breast feeding. The Grammy Makeover takes this procedure to the next level by adding any of a series of additional treatments and procedures including:

Radiesse® Hand Rejuvenation

FDA-approved, nonsurgical injections temporarily plump up skeletal thin skin on the back of the hand.

Brow Lift

A surgical procedure designed to smooth the skin above the eyes & on the forehead by repositioning sagging eyebrows and raising upper lids.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

A surgical procedure that removes excess fat, tissue, and skin around the eyes to create a more rested appearance.

Facelift Surgery (Rhytidectomy) or Mini Facelift

A surgical procedure that tightens wrinkled and loose facial skin and/or repositions facial tissue to create a tighter, more youthful appearance. I offer both facelift and mini facelift procedures.

Neck Lift

A surgical procedure that removes excess fat from the double chin, jowls and neck to create a more healthy appearance. Commonly performed in tandem with a facelift.

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

A surgical procedure that removes loose skin that may accumulate after weight fluctuation and aging and fat from the arms to create a more toned appearance.

What makes the Grammy Makeover special is that it’s 100% customizable. Since no two patients are truly identical, no two Grammy Makeovers are either. Due to its specific, customizable nature, a Grammy Makeover requires a thorough consultation.

What’s the Difference between a Mommy Makeover & Grammy Makeover?

Having options is great because in my opinion, it reduces the sense of restrictedness when having to pick among several things that we may truly want. Once women reach the point in their life when they’re finished with pregnancy/childbirth, or after years of waiting to finally decide to reclaim their youthful body from top to bottom, this is the ideal time to consider more comprehensive procedures. Two of the top most popular procedures among the 30 and over crowd (but keep in mind it’s not exclusive to this group by any means) has become the Mommy Makeover and Grammy Makeover procedures. Most notably known for combining multiple procedures into one procedure, these two offer great benefits for helping patients attain a younger-looking appearance, but what’s the difference between a Mommy Makeover and Grammy Makeover?

What’s the Difference between a Mommy Makeover & Grammy MakeoverMommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover got its name because it focuses on common areas of the body that physically change from the effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and weight gain/loss. This procedure combines breast and body contouring procedures and patients can choose from:

  • Breast Augmentation – to increase the overall size of the breasts using breast implants
  • Breast Lift – to reduce excess skin and fat from drooping breasts and raising them to a higher, more proportionate, position on the chest (can also be combined with a breast augmentation)
  • Liposuction – to permanently remove accumulated fat cells and refine the shape of the midsection, thighs, chin, arms, and buttocks
  • Tummy Tuck – to remove excess skin and fat of the abdominal region, and also re-tighten muscles that have weakened or separated during pregnancy

Grammy Makeover

With maturity comes more noticeably greater effects of natural aging and gravity that contribute to deeper wrinkles, perpetually tired-looking appearances, under-eye bags, sagging skin, and more. For this reason, a Grammy Makeover extends beyond the four procedures mentioned above for the Mommy Makeover – this time, combining nonsurgical and surgical options for the face, breasts, and body. In addition to breast augmentation/lift, liposuction and tummy tucks, a Grammy Makeover can include:

  • Hand Rejuvenation w/ Radiesse® – temporarily plumps up skeletal thin skin on the back of the hand instantly with the cosmetic injectable Radiesse® (results can generally last 1-2 years)
  • Browlift – smoothes the skin above/around the eyes & on the forehead by repositioning sagging eyebrows and raising upper lids
  • Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) – removes excess fat, tissue, and skin around the eyes to give a more rested appearance
  • Facelift – tightens sagging skin and smoothes wrinkles on the face (mainly around the cheeks, neck, and jowls) and/or repositions facial tissue
  • Neck Lift – removes excess fat from the chin and neck, eliminates hanging, and tightens what’s remaining for a smoother finish
  • Arm Lift – removes extra skin and fat (targeting the dreaded bat wings) before tightening remaining skin for a toned appearance
  • Fat Transfer – uses liposuction to remove fat from a donor site (typically the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks) that is purified and re-injected into areas of the body that have lost volume, such as the face and buttocks

There are options for how you’d like your groceries bagged, which gas station you’ll fuel up at, what hair color you’d like to choose, and so much more – so why shouldn’t the same inclusion apply to plastic surgery? Not every cosmetic plastic surgery procedure allows the same type of customizing freedom like a Mommy Makeover or Grammy Makeover, but the appeal of being able to hand select the procedures that will go into your final plastic surgery results are something many patients really appreciate knowing they have the ability to do. If you’re interested in learning more about Mommy Makeover, Grammy Makeover, or any of the other facial, breast, and body procedures performed by me, Dr. David Whiteman, don’t hesitate to contact Southern Plastic Surgery today.
