A breast augmentation refers to procedures that change the size, fullness, and appearance of the breasts. This procedure is popular with mothers as breastfeeding takes a toll on the appearance of the breasts. Breast lifts are often included in these procedures so that the breasts can be lifted and returned to a youthful and perky position.
Breast augmentations can be achieved with implants or fat transfer. If you would like to improve the shape, size, symmetry, position (including nipple position) a breast augmentation with lift is a great solution to regaining the chest of your youth.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, helps our patients slim down their body and achieve a flat stomach! Many times after pregnancy, mothers are left with loose stretched out skin that is speckled with stretch marks. A tummy tuck removes this loose skin as well as repairs and tightens the abdominal muscles. Removing stretched skin also helps to cut down on stretch-marked skin. Many women are frustrated with stretched abdominal skin because no amount of dieting and working out can help. Tummy tucks are often combined with liposuction to help women achieve a sexy and slim body.
Dr. Azar often uses liposuction alongside other cosmetic procedures to perfect results and help women feel their best.
Liposuction is a body contouring technique, not a weight loss solution.
This method of artfully sculpting the body is meticulously performed. Many women experience fluctuations in hormones during and after pregnancy that impact their metabolism. Fat deposits become much harder to get rid of liposuction offers the best solution!
Simple and effective, injectables like Botox and dermal fillers help to erase lines and add youthful volume to the face. These treatments are simple and fast, with most patients being able to leave their appointment in well under an hour. Botox is FDA-approved to help to minimize lines and wrinkles along the brow while dermal fillers can help fill in severe lines like nasolabial folds as well as fine wrinkles. Dermal fillers add volume to sunken areas, such as the cheeks, and can plump up the lips for a sexier appearance.
Injectables are a simple addition to any Mommy Makeover and will help you look years younger.
These treatments will be discussed at length during your personal consultation with Dr. Azar. Together, you and he will determine which combination of procedures offers your best Mommy Makeover.
The primary advantage of a Mommy Makeover is the comprehensive nature of the procedure. Mommy Makeovers aim to transform your body. By targeting the chest, abdomen and face, your appearance will be truly rejuvenated and everyone will notice how great you look. Another plus is how customizable the procedure is. A Mommy Makeover traditionally includes breast augmentation and tummy tuck, but you can add or remove as many treatments as you want. This procedure is purely based on your features and the areas you want to improve.
The best candidate for a Mommy Makeover is a mother who is satisfied with the size of her family and is not planning on having more children.
Pregnancy, childbirth, and pregnancy can undo the results achieved with these procedures. If you are done having children and are looking to dramatically impact your appearance, a Mommy Makeover is your solution. Women wanting to pursue this treatment should be healthy, within their ideal weight range and have a realistic expectation of what a Mommy Makeover can achieve.

The details of your procedure will depend on the Mommy Makeover surgery or treatment being performed.
Breast augmentation, liposuction, and tummy tuck will all take over an hour and require anesthesia and surgical techniques to bring about the result you want.
Whereas dermal fillers and other injectables are a minimally-invasive treatment that can be applied in under thirty minutes. Injectables do not require preparation or downtime. Dr. Azar will run through the details of each upcoming treatment with you so you can be prepared and plan your day accordingly.
Regardless of the procedure you undergo, you should always be getting plenty of sleep and drinking lots of water to make sure you are healthy and your outcomes are optimal. Each cosmetic surgery will require about a week of downtime. You will need to avoid strenuous activities and follow the in-depth recovery instructions Dr. Azar provides.
Follow-up appointments are important to attend as they give Dr. Azar a chance to make sure you are healthy and achieving your idealaesthetic.
Less invasive treatments like injectable fillers do not require downtime. You may experience some swelling and redness but these symptoms dissipate after about a day. Healthy recovery requirements and what is expected of you will be gone over by Dr. Azar.
Many of your results will be seen either immediately or within a few weeks. Botox often takes a couple of days to improve the skin but dermal fillers and cosmetic surgeries offer an immediate outcome. Cosmetic surgery results will only get better over the next few weeks as the swelling goes down and your body recovers. The results achieved with a breast augmentation, tummy tuck or liposuction are long-lasting results that can be maintained with a healthy lifestyle. Injectables will need to be maintained with appointments every few months.
