Picking the Right Fillers for You

Pretty much everyone and their mom has had at least some type of facial filler in their lifetime. Whether they’ve dabbled in Botox, attempted to get a bigger pout with restalyne, or just wanted to see what the hype was about, facial fillers aren’t strangers to our modern society. But if you’re new to the world of fillers and aren’t sure where to start, how can you be sure that you’re going with the right one for you? Here are 4 different fillers that will help you narrow down your search for a smoother complexion and fuller lips.

facial fillersRestylane
Restylane is typically used from the middle of the face down. So, if you are wanting to fix crows feet or forehead wrinkles, it’s not for you. However, if you’re worried about smile lines, wrinkles around your nose, lipstick lines, or just want to plump up your pout for a sexier smile, Restylane is the right thing for you. As an added perk, Restylane is FDA approved so that you don’t have to worry about any abnormal side-effects.

Botox
As the most popular filler in the world, Botox is not only a temporary filler used to treat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it can also be used to help combat excessive underarm sweating. However, unlike Restylane, Botox is typically used for the eyes on up. So if your target areas include your forehead and around your eyes, Botox is the ideal option for you.

Juvederm
Similar to Restylane, Juvederm is a filler that is used to target areas around the mouth and below the nose. Specifically, it is used to help fill in lines due to laughing and smiling, as well as plump the lips to make everyday things such as applying lipstick easier to do.

Radiesse
Unlike other fillers, Radiesse is designed to last longer than their counterparts which will leave you with an optimal look for even longer. By helping to promote the body’s natural ability to produce collagen, Radiesse will help smooth out lines and plump up your skin to give you a more youthful glow.

If you’re new to the world of fillers, don’t be scared. Although there are a lot of options to choose from, your doctor can help you decide the right one for your needs.

Mommy Makeover: How to Get a Mom Bod

You’re a superhero in your kids eyes; you make them laugh, you hold them when they cry, and you stay up with them when they’re sick. Although there are hundreds of joys that accompany motherhood, the physical toll of pregnancy can transform your once beautiful body into something a little less recognizable. From sagging breasts to bags under your eyes, being a mommy isn’t always glamorous. If you’re done having kids and want to start feeling like you again, consider a mommy makeover.

mommy makeover1. What is a Mommy Makeover?
Although thoughts of your children painting your face with makeup might come to mind, a mommy makeover is a surgical procedure that can involve a combination of a tummy tuck, liposuction, a breast lift, breast augmentation surgery, breast reduction, or facial rejuvenation.

2. How Long Does It Take?
Depending on the combination of procedures that you would like to go, the actual procedural time can typically be done during one day. Plus,  procedures like breast augmentations and tummy tucks can usually be done at once— getting you in and out of surgery faster and without too much added stress on your body.

3. What is Recovery Time Like?
Although you won’t be able to do any heavy lifting for about 3-4 weeks, you can typically get back into your normal routine in just a few days. And with the help of some pain killers, you can start to feel your normal self fairly shortly after your procedure, which will help to get you back to work as
“mommy.”

4. Who is this Surgery Ideal For?
Due to the invasive nature of a tummy tuck procedure and breast augmentation surgeries, it’s usually recommended that you get a mommy makeover after you are done having children. Plus, if you do become pregnant again, your results might diminish over time, leaving you less than happy.

Being a mother is beyond rewarding, however 9 months of pregnancy over and over again, can wreak havoc on your body. If you want to be able to look in the mirror and recognize your body again, it might be time to consider a mommy makeover. To learn more, contact our office today!
