With more time off for the holidays and the new year coming up, it’s the perfect time to restore your pre-pregnancy body with a mommy makeover! A mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures to address changes that have occurred after pregnancy and childbirth. If restoring your body and confidence is part of your New Year’s resolution, here’s what you need to know:

What Procedures to Include

The mommy makeover is highly customizable, so you can choose the procedures you need to address your unique concerns. The most commonly performed procedure after pregnancy is the tummy tuck. The abdominal area is highly affected by pregnancy, resulting in loose skin and tissue. With a tummy tuck, the abdominal tissue is tightened and excess skin is removed to achieve a toned appearance. Liposuction techniques can be used at the same time if stubborn fat is present.

The breasts are another area highly affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding. If you experience unwanted changes to your breasts after pregnancy, you might consider a procedure like a breast reduction to address enlarged breasts, or an augmentation with implants to restore volume loss. You might also consider adding a breast lift if you experience excess skin and sagging.

The Benefits of Combining Procedures

You might’ve thought you had to have each of your procedures done separately, however, it’s perfectly safe and even more beneficial to combine them. By having your procedures done at once, you won’t have to go through separate recovery processes. Instead, your surgical sites will heal together to reveal full-body rejuvenation. You can also expect to save money on fees by having the procedures done in one sitting.

Plastic surgery isn’t just for women! Men experience insecurities and unwanted changes to their bodies too, and with procedures tailored to their needs, they can achieve life changing enhancements. Male plastic surgery has been on the rise overall, but here are some of the most popular procedures for men:

Body Contouring

One of the most popular surgical procedures for men is the breast reduction, or gynecomastia surgery. Gynecomastia refers to enlarged breast tissue and is a very common condition among men, so it’s no wonder why the procedure is so popular! A breast reduction can remove the excess tissue and fat causing your enlarged breasts and create a flat, masculine chest.

Liposuction is another popular contouring procedure that is used to remove pockets of stubborn fat from the body. Stubborn fat can be present almost anywhere on the body but is found largely in the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and back. Liposuction not only removes stubborn fat, but sculpts the body to help men achieve a toned, masculine appearance.

Facial Rejuvenation

Men experience signs of aging just like women do, but you can find relief with Botox for men, commonly known as “Brotox.” Botox is used to smooth facial lines and wrinkles in the upper face such as crow’s feet in the outer corners of the eyes, frown lines between the brows, and forehead lines. The injectable formula can effectively reduce the appearance of your wrinkles for many months so you can look years younger!

When you think of plastic surgery, you might not consider procedures for your eyelids, but eyelid rejuvenation is actually quite popular among men and can make a huge difference in your appearance. Eyelid surgery removes excess skin in the upper or lower eyelids to help you achieve a more awake and youthful appearance. For some, eyelid surgery can even improve their vision by eliminating excess tissue blocking their sight.

Another popular procedure is a mini face and neck lift, using minimal incisions to sculpt the jawline and the neckline.  Removing some excess skin and fat, along with tightening the muscles under the chin can take years off!

New Image Plastic Surgery offers these procedures for men and more to help you look and feel your best! Contact our office today for your consultation with Dr. Homas to discuss which procedure might be right for you.

There is a common misconception that only women get plastic surgery, however, this is not the case at all! Men age in many of the same ways that women do and can develop facial wrinkles, folds, and sagging. There’s no reason why men shouldn’t look and feel their best too! Keep reading to find out why many men are choosing to get a facelift.

For a Younger Appearance

Wrinkles can begin to develop as early as your 30s and only get worse with time. Unfortunately, you can’t stop the clock, but you can reverse the effects it has on your appearance. With a facelift, men can achieve a younger look by smoothing out wrinkles and virtually eliminating sagging. A skilled plastic surgeon in San Antonio can give you a significantly younger looking face while remaining natural. You’ll still look like you, just younger!

For a More Masculine Jawline

Plastic surgery aims to enhance the patient’s unique facial features. For women, that might mean looking more feminine and making certain features appear smaller, but for men, a facelift can create a more masculine appearance. A facelift can achieve this by tightening the underlying tissue in the lower face, creating a stronger, more defined jawline and improving a double chin.

For Improved Confidence

Confidence plays a huge roll in your personal and professional life. If you’re self-conscious about your appearance, those aspects of your life are sure to be affected in some way. Your face is such an important and noticeable part of your body, so you’ll want to feel happy with the way it looks and the way people view you. A facelift can restore your confidence by taking years off your face and making you look more awake and refreshed, so you can tackle each day with confidence.

Every patient’s concerns and goals are unique, so schedule a consultation with a board-certified surgeon to find out exactly what a facelift could do for you! Contact our office today for a consultation with Dr. Homas in the San Antonio, TX area.
