Get your pre-baby body back and regain your self-confidence.

Having a baby changes your life, and your body. I know the feeling: you look in the mirror, turn sideways, and suck it in, but that loose skin and lower belly pooch won’t completely go away. Here’s the good news: you can get rid of that saggy skin and feel great in your jeans again!

Before I explain how to fix that saggy stomach, let’s explore what causes the sag:

  1. Skin stretches with pregnancy and weight gain. After the baby is born that excess skin will shrink up quite a bit, but often not all the way.
  2. Your rectus muscles (that form a 6-pack) stretch apart to accommodate the baby. Just like your skin, the muscles don’t necessarily bounce back to normal.

To get that flat stomach back (and regain your self confidence!), you need to remove the extra skin and tighten the stretched muscles. And that means surgery.  No amount or combination of exercise will accomplish what a tummy tuck can.

 

And here’s the great news: the results are permanent! If you stay at a stable weight, your flat stomach (and increased confidence) will be around for a long, long time.

What are those age spots on my arms and hands?

Do you ever look at your hands while driving and wonder when all those brown spots suddenly popped up?
Or realize you haven’t worn a v-neck sweater in years, because the age spots on your

Often called age spots or liver spots, these brown spots can actually be one of several things:
  1. Skin cancer. This is obviously the most serious. So if you have a new spot that suddenly popped up, or one that is painful, itchy, or changing color, it’s worth seeing your doctor to make sure everything is okay.
  2. Seborrheic keratosis. Known in the business as SKs (because really, who wants to say seborrheic several times a day?), these brown spots are usually raised and flaky. They can appear anywhere, but most commonly on the back, arms, and temples.
  3. Solar lentigoes. The name literally means “sun spots,” and these brown spots are caused by sun exposure over the years.
Now that we know what’s causing these annoying brown spots, how do we prevent them? As I mentioned above solar lentigoes are related to sun exposure. Wearing daily sunscreen can help prevent them. Unfortunately most of our sun exposure has happened long before we start to see these brown spots, so sunscreen can only help so much. SKs are not related to sun exposure. Some people just develop them with age, and they do seem to run in families. Unfortunately there is no way to prevent SKs.
The good news is that both SKs and solar lentigoes can be treated. SKs are usually cauterized or lasered off. Solar lentigoes are often treated with a combination of laser treatments to pull the pigment out of the skin and skin lighteners such as hydroquinone to prevent the pigmentation from coming back.
If you would like to get rid of your age spots, you’ll likely need a couple of treatments to remove what you currently have, then a touch up once a year to remove anything new. These treatments are done in the office, and have very little downtime. If you’d like to find out more, please call us for a FREE consultation.
