Mommy Makeovers In Scottsdale Arizona

As we are approaching the holiday season and New Year we also think of some New Year’s resolution and goals. How about some body improvement and rejuvenation. For all the new moms who went through pregnancy this year there are options! It’s not secret that once you are a mom things just don’t look quite the same as before. I know there are some super lucky girls out there who just bounce back (freak of nature) most of us just left with a new us. It takes time to adjust to the physical change mentally. What are we talking about? Well the flat and tight tummy we used to have is now somewhat soft and a bit saggy. And then we gain extra fat, every woman is different, but I hear it all the time,  it’s either abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. This is why  “Mommy Makeovers” are becoming popular.

As a beauty blogger I often asked for tips about what plastic surgeon in Scottsdale I know and whose who, especially, when they just move to town. I recently stumbled upon Dr. Joseph Berardi a board-certified Scottsdale Plastic Surgeon at the Berardi Aesthetics And Plastic Surgery website where you can read about what options you can have when considering a Mommy Makeover. Just in case you are wondering it might include the following:


One of the most common procedures included in a mommy makeover is liposuction; a minimally invasive, only small incisions are required to access and remove unwanted body fat. This procedure allows you to easily contour your abdomen, thighs and buttocks after childbirth. Exercise will improve your results, but there is no need to wait months to get your body back. It only takes a few days to recover from liposuction although some bruising or swelling may last a bit longer.

Breast Procedures

Your breasts undergo changes during pregnancy. Once you have had a child, you may find that your breasts start to sag. Your breasts may end up larger or smaller than they were pre-pregnancy. Another common procedure for mommy makeovers is to correct all of these issues, which can be done easily with breast augmentation, reduction or lift procedures. Recovery after breast augmentation procedures is quick. You should be back to full speed in about just a few weeks.

Tummy Tucks

During pregnancy, your skin and muscles stretch and change. It can sometimes seem impossible to get your tummy back after childbirth. Older mothers are even more prone to a sagging belly and abdomen that refuses to return to a pre-pregnancy state. A tummy tuck can address belly sagging and help you eliminate stretch marks and any extra skin due to stretching. Recovery time for this type of procedure takes a few weeks, but the results are well worth it.

Skin Rejuvenation

Laser skin resurfacing, fillers and Botox can help you get your glow and youthful appearance back. The stresses of parenthood do not have to show on your face. Laser skin resurfacing can achieve noticeable improvement to your skins texture and appearance.

It’s time for you to feel as good or better after pregnancy as you did before. Mommy Makeovers are serious plastic surgery and should only be performed by a board certified plastic surgeon. Scottsdale Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Joseph Berardi is extremely experienced in all phased of the Mommy Makeover.

Botox Is Providing Amazing Results

Botox treatments have become the most well-known and preferred skin injection procedure available. It is a fast, versatile, safe, and therapeutic procedure used to alleviate wrinkles and lines throughout the neck and face. Botox is a natural purified protein that is injected into the facial muscles that are most often used and where most lines and wrinkles appear. It has made it easier for millions of men and women to turn back time and enable them to feel and look as they once were.Treatments are used worldwide by people from all walks of life including those who are single and want to attract a new mate, the housewife who wants to appear younger, the aging gentleman who is trying to get a new job, and of course the rich and famous.

Lines and wrinkles are the most frequent complaints among individuals who wish to look more youthful. Injections are an effective and safe alternative to cosmetic plastic surgery.

Erica Rose Interviews With Marta Walsh

I’m very excited to share with you my interview with Erica Rose. You might remember Erica as the “socialite” on ABC’s hit series THE BACHELOR: Rome. She was one of the top 6 women competing for Prince’s Lorenzo Borghese heart. I certainly can’t forget Erica and her love it or hate it personality. She stood out as a true reality star. Erica’s most recent project includes staring in a new VH1 reality series “You’re Cut Off” premiering next Wednesday, June 9th, 2010. I must say, this interview with Erica helped me to get to know her a little bit better. I’m quite impressed how grounded, smart, and witty, she comes across. If any of you out there dream on becoming a reality star you might want to read this interview and learn a thing or two from lovely Miss Rose.

In this interview Erica Rose talks to Marta Walsh about her experience in The Bachelor: Rome. What does it really take to be a reality star. Her new reality show “You’re Cut Off”.

Marta Walsh: Where do you call home?
Erica Rose: Right now Houston, Texas because I’m in law school there at the University of Houston- I just finished my second year. I travel a lot though and have houses in Aspen and Palm Springs so I also feel like a Cali and Colorado girl as much as I do a Texan.
