What is a “Mommy Makeover”?

A #mommymakeover consists of one or more procedures that can be performed together or separately to restore or improve post-pregnancy bodies.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 41% of the 15.9 million cosmetic procedures performed in 2015 were patients between the ages of 30 and 39. 21% of them were between the ages of 20 and 29.

Despite following diet and exercise some women find that their bodies are never quite the same. If you want your pre-pregnancy body back and diet and exercise just isn’t working, Plastic Surgery Associates can help. Our nationally respected, board certified plastic surgeons can create a custom treatment plan tailored to your specific goals and needs.

Guys, shaving is probably already part of your normal routine, but what if it wasn’t? Laser hair removal for men, also sometimes referred to as “manscaping”, is a growing trend that removes unwanted body hair for a more permanent solution.

We’re not saying you should eliminate that full beard or mustache, but what about pesky neck hairs (that you should trim anyway)? If you have sensitive skin and the ability to grow a strong 5’oclock shadow by lunch time, daily shaving can be a painful hassle.

Our patient (above) experienced razor burn and painful ingrown hairs after shaving his neck. After several laser hair removal treatments, he had an incredible hair reduction and no longer suffers from ingrown hairs (“folliculitis”) or razor burn. He is a couple of touch up treatments away from being neck hair free.

“We all have areas of hair that we just don’t want to bother with,” said board-certified plastic surgeon John Renucci. “Whether it’s the ears, back of the neck, or back, it can just be a pain. Laser hair removal removes that hassle of shaving and is less expensive long term than waxing or tweezing.

If you are interested in shaving down your grooming routine, call us at 616.451.4500 to schedule your complimentary laser hair removal consultation with one of our skin care specialists.



You’ll like this treatment if: you’ve tried basic MicroPeel skin treatments, you’re new to laser treatments, you want to reduce wrinkles, even skin tone and texture.

Now is the perfect time to try laser skin rejuvenation while you are not spending much time in the sun. Though we love the warm summer months, sun exposure can wreak havoc on our skin  in the form of freckles, pigmentation, or wrinkles. If you are wondering how to get rid of sun damage or if your skin is just feeling dry and dull, a mild laser skin treatment may be a great place to start to get you camera-ready for the holidays.

The NanoLaserPeel with the Sciton Laser is a fast and efficient approach to refreshing your skin with only 1 to 2 days of downtime. This laser treatment precisely targets damaged cells on the skin’s surface that are the culprit for making your skin appear tired or damaged. The NanoLaserPeel gently removes the top layer allowing for smooth, glowing skin in just a few days.

Perhaps you can’t set aside a couple of days for red healing skin…no problem. While you may feel a slight sunburn sensation after your treatment, redness subsides and dry, dead skin will disappear a few days after your treatment. Most patients notice an improvement in the tone, texture, and color of their skin within a week.

For best results, we recommend a package of treatments spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart. Your laser specialist will customize a package to suit your needs and desired outcome. If you have tried a MicroPeel skin treatment, this mild laser peel is a great way to take your skin care regimen to the next level.

Consultations are free.
