OK ladies…Here is all you need to know about a Mommy Make-Over a.k.a. “MMO”! Let’s start with the definition. Normally, a MMO involves a breast lift and a tummy-tuck. The lift may not be necessary and a breast augmentation may be a simple solution to the drooping breast. Unfortunately, after breast feeding your adorable God sent gift, you’re left with empty milk sacks. Sounds wonderful I know, no one tells you about this as an excited mother to be and we are so excited when our baby breast feeds successfully. But the price of this wonderful experience is saggy bags. Well worth the benefit though. However, some moms are blessed with no stretch marks and breasts that return to their Read More
For people who are tired of shaving, tweezing and waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair reduction treatments have become the preferred option. While hair reduction is most popular among women, treatments for men are increasingly popular as they seek treatment for unwanted hair on the chest, back and ears. During laser hair reduction, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. Those who have best success using laser hair reduction have pale skin and dark hair. Those with grey or white, blond, light brown or red hair won’t see results. It is possible to treat darker skin tones at lower energy Read More
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the United States with over 300,000 women electing to have the surgery in 2013 alone. Much of the recent increase in the popularity of the procedure can be attributed to the improvement in the implants and techniques over the last several years. The silicone gel implants now come in multiple shapes and profiles which allow the surgery to be customized to each patient. Additionally, today’s silicone gel is much more cohesive, which makes this new generation of gel implants safer with less concern about silicone leaking. With the development of the Keller Funnel, the silicone gel implants can now be placed through an incision in the underarm area, Read More
Breast implant surgery is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery in women worldwide. However, a recent plastic surgery statistic released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) revealed that breast lift procedures are gaining popularity throughout the U.S. as there has been a 70 percent increase in breast lifts, also called mastopexy, since 2000. ASPS reports that board certified members have conducted over 90,000 breast lifts in 2013, up from 53,000 in 2000, revealing the drastic shift in preference for a more youthful breast with or without augmentation. According to ASPS President Robert X Murphy, Jr., MD, many women are looking for youthful breasts by making use of the tissue they already have. In contrast, breast implant surgeries Read More

On average your skin can shed 30,000 to 40,000 dead cells per minute. Exfoliation is very important when rejuvenating weary winter skin. Exposure to the “dry” indoor heat during the winter months can drain moisture from the skin and add layers of dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling heavy and looking unhealthy. Exfoliation involves the removal of these dead skin cells from the outer layer, leaving your skin feeling fresh and looking radiant and smooth.

For decades there has been a relentless search for effortless weight loss and painless cosmetic surgery. We might call these goals the “holy grail” of plastic surgery. Last year Americans spent over $11 billion on surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures and the potential market is likely much, much larger. The only thing that holds many of us back is the effort, pain and recovery typically required to improve/reshape our bodies. Without a doubt, there are tremendous profits to be made by anyone that can produce consistent results with minimal effort, pain and downtime. And wherever there are big profits to be made there will invariably be snake-oil salesmen trying to get a piece of the action. I cannot stress too Read More
Most everyone will agree that a deep tan looks beautiful. Most of us do not feel comfortable showing our un-tanned legs come spring, or really any time of the year for that matter. Living in Florida, we always want our skin to look its best since most of our wardrobe exposes our skin. So, how can we look beautifully bronzed without harming our health? After years of research and numerous trials and error, I have found that St. Tropez self-tanning products are the only way to look believably tan while nourishing my skin.
