This is a time to optimize non-surgical ways to keep your skin looking young. The skin ages as a result of sun, use, and loss of elasticity. During this time skin care is paramount: you can reverse some of the damage with good skin care products or skin resurfacing (TCA peel) . This is also a time to “prevent” wrinkles from happening. BOTOX® injections can prevent or reverse wrinkles of the forehead, crow’s feet, or between the eyebrows.
Pregnancy and weight loss affect many areas of the body. Plastic surgery can help return a woman’s body to back to “normal.” Frequent procedures are breast augmentations or breast lifts to return fullness, volume, and lift to the breast. If you are a liposuction candidate, it is good to do liposuction while your skin tone is still good, so the skin retracts tightly after fat removal. Also a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is particularly good to tighten underlying abdominal musculature and remove skin laxity, fat, and stretch marks caused by pregnancy or weight loss.
