Baby Steps to a Mommy Makeover

You’re a mom. You know baby steps like the back of your hand.

The first solid food. The first word. The first ‘Slept all night!’ The first step.

#dailymommylife revolves around waiting, watching and walking in baby steps – which take both patience and courage for you and your kiddoes.

Happily, your experience has taught you that big changes can come with small steps.

But since no makeover, just like no mommy, is like any other, make sure to take the right steps to make the changes you want. Find a board-certified plastic surgeon who has the necessary expertise and experience, who will listen and understand your specific concerns in order to create a makeover plan just for you.

At The Lucas Center, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jay Lucas and his staff feel they are privileged to meet moms right where they are in the middle of their busy lives. They assess their individual needs and desires to develop a customized plan, budget and timetable for a mommy makeover that works just for them. Whether big or baby steps.

First step? Schedule a private consultation. What distresses you when you look in the mirror? What undermines your confidence? What would it be like to have your pre-baby body back? What if your complexion looked brighter and smoother? Your eyes less tired-looking? What are your goals and expectations?

When you meet with Dr. Lucas, he will discuss your desires in depth, address your concerns to your satisfaction, evaluate your health, explain surgical and non-surgical procedure options, downtimes and potential outcomes, and only then customize a personal plan for you. His approach is known as his 3D thought process merging his expertise and comprehensive technical and anatomical knowledge to personalize your plan.

Second step? Take away the mystery in your makeover. The VECTRA 3D Imaging System lets you visualize your results and compare side-by-side images of your body before and after certain procedures from multiple angles. No wondering or worrying about how you’ll look afterwards. Or, if it’s the right procedure for you! You can be confident about your next steps forward.

Perfect time for the perfect steps.

Pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding are simply shapeshifters. Dr. Lucas may recommend body contouring and sculpting procedures, such as a tummy tuck, liposuction, a breast lift, and/or other body aesthetic services. With the wonderfully wild stressors of motherhood, you can see your love for your children literally written on your face, right? Those sleepless nights comforting a sick toddler leave a memory – and a mark within in your heart, and at the corners of your eyes, across your forehead and around your mouth. So, you can end up looking older and worn out.

Injectables and fillers are perfect baby steps to: soften crow’s feet and furrows between your eyebrows and on your forehead, restore volume to your face and smooth the wrinkles around the mouth.

Sagging, scarring, stretch marks, pigmentation discoloring, acne, sun damage? Dr. Lucas may also recommend skin resurfacing through laser treatments, dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, or a chemical peel. He can explain the difference in recovery and downtime for each one.

Like all of us, you are spending more time at home with your family than ever before … which might make it a perfect time to take some steps to pursue your custom mommy makeover.

Developing a little mommy self-care takes patience and courage. Baby steps. Big changes.

Look at your fitness tracker and count the number of steps that you take on behalf of your family every day. Now multiply that number times seven days a week, fifty-two weeks a year.

Now, imagine taking just a few of those steps for yourself.

Get ready …. go!
