Dan had spent months planning the perfect proposal for Katie. He wanted to do it while they were on vacation in Hawaii, at sunset on a beautiful beach. When he finally did propose she was thrilled and said yes, and they started calling all of their friends and family to tell them. It did not take long for wedding planning to swing into full gear, and pretty soon, it was only a few weeks before the wedding. Katie had no idea where the time had gone but she had done just about everything she could think of to get ready for the wedding. She had one final fitting to do with her dress still, but everything else was ordered, paid for, and would be there on the big day. She could not wait.
Katie’s attention to detail and tendency to be a planner had left exactly one thing off the list: bridesmaid gifts. When she realized it about a week before the wedding she nearly panicked. What would she be able to come up with that was personalized, classy, and affordable all at the same time – and on such short notice? She did some searching and asked around as discretely as possible when she found her answer. The girls had been asking about what jewelry she wanted them to wear, and she had been leaving it up to them to decide. But then she figured she could say it was all a ploy, and have jewelry for them.
She turned next to one of Dan’s friend’s wives, who worked in a sterling silver jewelry shop, and asked about the different design options and prices. Six days before the wedding, she was not going to have a whole lot of time to have anything custom made, but that did not mean she could not still get them some mens gold chains. She wanted the more unique personal touch, and so she ended up picking sterling silver earrings for the bridesmaid, each in a different style. While they were handmade, they were already ready to go in the store, so she was able to still get them nice jewelry with a different touch for each bridesmaid without having to wait.
Katie couldn’t wait to unveil the bridesmaid gifts at the rehearsal dinner, and the girls loved them. They were surprised, of course, and she ended up telling them the story of how she had wanted it to look like she planned it but had not. They all had a good laugh about it and all of them wanted to wear their new earrings the next day with their bridesmaid dresses at the wedding. It ended up being the perfect gift even though it was last minute, and Katie is thrilled that she was able to find such a nice option for them. These were her best friends and she was glad she was able to get them something special. Katie highly recommends a similar gift idea for any bride trying to figure out what to get her bridesmaids.
Mommy makeover typically includes some type of breast procedure, some type of body contouring procedures, and some doctors will include a buttock augmentation (enhancement) for a lot of people. For a lot of moms, after having a few kids, there’s a lot of volume that’s lost in the buttocks, so instead of throwing the fat away, doctors will add and enhance the fat in the buttock region. The breast procedure depends on each patient. A patient may only need an implant for a small lift, some people require a little lift in addition to that, every patient is different. For the abdominal area and contouring, typically we’re talking about either a tummy tuck, liposuction, or a combination, it depends on what your condition is and what your goals are. There are a lot of moms who were very active before they had kids and are used to their nice physique and they want to get back to it so of course there’s a lot more work involved. However, for some moms, just getting back into looking great in their clothes and being comfortable is their goal, so everybody’s a little different.
How long is the recovery process from a mommy makeover?
You definitely need someone to help take care of you and provide for your needs for at least ten days. After that, you can get back on your feet and can help out with your kids a little bit more. Depending on the needs of your kids, you may need just a little bit of help or a lot of help. Every individual case is different.
What is the cost for a mommy makeover?
The cost for Mommy Makeover Atlanta varies depending on the shape that each patient is in and it depends on your goals. Typically, on average, a mommy makeover will start at about $10,000 and that includes breast work and stomach. And if you need liposuction to get that really small waist line, or maybe add a little more volume to the butt, you’ll have to add each procedure.
The greatest thing that’s happened in the cosmetic industry in the past couple of years is the advances that have been made in fat reduction and body sculpting. Let’s face it, we’ve all been a little appalled at the sight of old-fashioned lipo. It’s a relief to think that we can get rid of fat in a much gentler way now. Doctors now offer a laser-assisted liposuction technique called SmartLipo. There are three main advantages to Atlanta Liposuction:
There’s no general anesthesia which is great because that’s the biggest risk of any surgery. Instead, doctors will numb you with a tumescent anesthesia which is a type of local numbing medicine.
The second advantage is that the laser melts and liquefies your fat before doctors do the liposuction. So that makes the procedure much more gentle. It’s like they’re removing melted butter instead of grated cheese. (Although I know that sounds gross.) Liquefying the fat not only makes the procedure easier on you, it also give a much smoother result. Traditional liposuction can leave a lumpy or irregular appearance.
The laser has a temperature guide on it. Doctors will heat the skin to a certain temperature so that your skin tightens and that’s important. Although there’s always a risk of some skin sagging after all types of liposuction, almost everyone gets skin tightening with SmartLipo. Obviously, like it is with all things, the younger you are, the more skin tightening you get.
SmartLipo is best for people who are close to their normal body weight but can’t lose certain areas of fat. Certainly, doctors will perform SmartLipo on people who are overweight but it’s important to discuss your expectations with your doctor. The most common areas that are treated are the abdomen, flanks and back, inner and outer thighs, and neck and lower face. Of course, doctors will also do the knees, arms, and bra fat. There really isn’t a fatty area that doctors can’t treat except the buttocks. It’s just too difficult to make that even.
Ultherapy is a skin tightening laser that’s relatively new on the market. So Ultherapy is used for skin tightening. People use it for an array of different diagnoses and conditions for different patients, for sagging, for lax skin, and for crepiness. When you go in for your treatment, you can expect to arrive anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours, depending on which area is being treated.
How does Ultherapy work?
How Ultherapy works is actually an ultrasound laser that delivers little microbursts of trauma at different depths of the skin. They can treat 4.5 millimeters down, 3 millimeters down, and 1.5 millimeters down, so it’s actually targeting three different skin layers. By targeting those three different skin layers, it’s going to start a regenerative process that’s going to create collagen, stimulate tightening, growth, and firm the tissue. With Ultherapy, there’s very little down time and you can expect to see results in as little as three to four weeks. To set-up your consultation for Ultherapy Atlanta, visit Slimplasty.com.
