Put Your Best Face Forward After Pregnancy

Put Your Best Face Forward After Pregnancy

Getting your figure back after just welcoming your new baby into the world is a wonderful feeling. The mommy make-over procedure does a great job with restoring your breasts and abdomen, but what about your face? After all, this is what everyone will be seeing the most of! Dr. Robert T. Grant, a board certified plastic surgeon from New York City, talks about the new advances to treat facial lines and wrinkles.

Kiss Crow’s Feet and Wrinkles Goodbye!

The FDA has recently approved one manufacturer’s formulation to treat crow’s feet (lines and wrinkles that come out the corners of the eye).  BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only FDA approved drug treatment option for lateral canthal lines.  The product works by keeping muscles from tightening so wrinkles are less noticeable.  Plastic surgeons and dermatologists have been using neurotoxins for many years to treat these areas.

Due to the effects of your hormones from pregnancy, your skin may still be experiencing irregularity, puffiness, or even may have begun descending. What other methods can take care of your post pregnancy appearance without having an operation?

  • Fillers – Plastic surgeons use fillers for the line between the nose and the mouth, or the parentheses line.  These kinds of fillers are used to help fill up some of the volume, restoring a youthful appearance to your face.
  • Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening Agents – These treatments have increasingly less down time.   These agents can also help give your face a little bit of rejuvenation.

“The fact that we now have scientific evidence to support the roles for this kind of treatment shows that we are going to be able to prove that these medicines have great utility in all the areas plastic surgeons have been using already,” says Dr. Grant.

Looking Better Will Make You Feel Better

There is nothing more exciting in any parent’s life than to bring a baby into the world.  Suddenly, your focus is no longer on you, but on your new child.  This does not mean you must lose balance in terms of the rest of your family and professional life.  Just because you’re a mom doesn’t mean you are no longer a person interested in presenting themselves to the world in the best way possible. “If you feel better as a parent, then the way you deal with your surroundings and your baby is going to be better, too,” says Grant.
