Have you heard that we are now offering tummy tucks with Dr. Nealy? You may be interested in tummy tuck surgery, but are nervous if you should do it. We get it. Tummy tucks are invasive surgeries, and you want to be sure it’s right for you before committing.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery that helps to improve the appearance of the abdomen. Not only does this procedure help get rid of unwanted fat, but it also removes excess skin, and strengthens weak or separated abdominal muscles as well.
Who is a Candidate for a Tummy Tuck
Patients who are the best candidates for a tummy tuck are those who are looking to get rid of excess abdominal skin after pregnancy or weight loss. Dr. Nealy is able to combine tummy tuck techniques to erase fat that is resistant to exercise and dieting. This procedure is also best suited for patients who:
Are done being pregnant
Have realistic expectations for results
Are in good health and don’t smoke
Are committed to living a healthy lifestyle
Have realistic expectations for recovery

The Multi-Polar RF delivers fast, pain free, homogeneous heating to multiple tissue depths resulting in superior outcomes for body shaping and skin tightening. Pulsed Magnetic Fields technology has been used in traditional medicine for decades and is scientifically proven with regard to its regenerative properties.
Is there pain with Venus Freeze?
No. The patented design of the Venus Freeze treatment applicators allow for fast, even delivery of the energy which most compare to a hot stone massage. There is no pain or discomfort whatsoever, and no downtime, which means you can get back to your normal day right after the treatment.
Am I an ideal candidate for Venus Freeze?
Venus Freeze can be an effective solution for many patients but as with any treatment, there are some considerations. Venus Freeze is not an alternative for those needing significant weight loss or surgery such as liposuction. It is designed for patients who have a Body Mass Index of less than 30 and have a commitment to living a healthy lifestyle.
What areas can I have treated with Venus Freeze?
Venus Freeze is designed to treat the entire body and face, however most new Moms prefer to focus on the abdomen and hips to reduce the size of the post baby pooch as well as the appearance of stretch marks.
What is the treatment frequency and how long does each take?
Each patient has different needs but on average, optimal results can be achieved after 6-8 treatments for the face and after 8-10 treatments for the body. Treatment frequency is once a week and last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes for one area. Most new Moms enjoy having a little “Me Time” in order to relax and get pampered.
How safe is Venus Freeze?
Venus Freeze is safe for all skin types and because there is no downtime, you may resume your normal daily routine right after each treatment. Your physician or clinician will determine if you have any risk factors which will prevent you from being treated.
This past year many celebrities like Kate Hudson and Victoria Beckham gave birth to beautiful healthy babies. And it wasn't very long before we saw those new mommies out and about sporting a newly toned, skinny and healthy body. Almost as if they were never pregnat!
They make it look so easy. But, for those of us who aren't A-list celebrities sometimes we need a little plastic surgery to help get that body back. A lot of women have even chosen to have procedures done before getting pregnat.
Does having plastic surgery pre-baby bump help our bodies recover faster? Most doctors believe this doesn't have an effect on how quickly the body will recover.
Thos who have had lipostuction pre-baby may have a better chance of not gaining weight in the area where liposuction was performed. But, you can still gain weight in other parts of the body. It just depends on what part of the body was treated. For example, the stomach is not void to changes after liposuction, but areas like the upper thigh are.
Woman who have had a tummy tuck, may or may not bounce back into shape quicker. A tummy tuck should be saved for after pregnancy in order to get better, long-lasting results.
It is unclear if pre-surgery options do in fact have an effect on post-baby results. But Silk Touch Med Spa offers many procedures and treatments that can help you regain your body back after pregnancy.
Many women complain that that still have a “baby belly” once their body weight has returned to a healthy pre-pregnancy level. In most cases this is caused by a combination of a stubborn bulge of fat and a permanent loss of elasticity in the skin of the abdomen.
This can be difficult and even impossible to fix with diet an exercise. Non-surgical body sculpting procedures like Vaser and SmartLipo can help fix this problem.
Some women notice residual brown pigmentation of the face that persists after their baby is born. This is commonly caused by melasma, also known as the mask of pregnancy. Depending on the type of hyperpigmentation that is presentIntense Pulse Light Treatmentscan be an excellent treatment in addition to an optimized skincare regimen.
All new mothers experience exhaustion! Many women complain that they look tired after pregnancy. This may be a result of a number of factors including dark under eye hollows, well developed frown lines and sagging in the cheeks resulting from loss of pregnancy fat. A number of minimally and non invasive procedures can be used to offer a subtle rejuvenation to the “tired” post-pregnancy face including Botox, Radiesse, Juvederm, Artefill and Intense Pulsed Light.
