"I had two kids and I didn't like the way I looked anymore," shared Santa Clarita resident Lara M., 35. "I breastfed both of them, which I'm very proud of - but when I was done, my chest looked really deflated. I didn't look good in clothes, I was self conscious."
I don't usually get medical-procedure advice from Khloe Kardashian, but when she overshared, "My sisters, they've had kids, and there's a vagina lasering thing to tighten. So in my household, all they do is talk about this vagina laser," I had to learn more. After all, I'm a mom who's given birth to three kids. If there's a way to feel better "down there," I want to know about it.
"I have wanted a new physique for years, but I didn't want to give my daughters the impression that women shouldn't be happy with their bodies. I didn't want to pass down my displeasure with my figure to them. Then I went through a divorce and decided, 'It's time.' And you know what? My daughters were actually so supportive!," shares Belinda, 61.
If you are wishing you could hit the holiday party circuit feeling fresh faced, these ideas might be just what the doctor ordered.
For over a year, I've been in charge of interviewing patients of Dr. Justin Heller's celebrated plastic surgery practice. I've spoken to breast cancer survivors who talked about how the Ivy-League educated surgeon helped them emotionally and physically recover after mastectomies; I've listened patiently as another wept while she spoke of her dramatic weight loss, the skin it left behind, and her first-in-a-lifetime experience being flirted with after her confidence-boosting procedures with the doctor. I was wowed by a new grandma who said, "I laughed when Dr. Heller told me I'd be wearing a bikini after my procedure. But guess what? I rocked a bikini this summer!" I've been motivated by women who waited for the procedure that changed their self perceptions, each saying that their only regret was not having surgery earlier.
Valencia resident S.R. has had a remarkable 18 months; she beat cancer, started eating clean and working out, lost 85 pounds and, most recently, graduated from college.
"I would definitely do it again," says DM, a recent patient of Heller Plastic Surgery in Valencia. "I look like me, only younger! If you compared the 'me' of today with a photo from a decade ago, we'd look the same. Dr. Heller is really a blessing."
"I chose to invest in my appearance at a younger age because I take pride in looking my best," says S.S. of Valencia, when asked why she chose to have a "half" face and neck lift at 46 years old.
"Dimples," "cottage cheese" or "cellulite." It doesn't really matter what we name those little divots in our buttocks and thighs; what we'd like to call them is "gone."
Non-invasive & Outpatient Options to Feel Slim & Trim
"I've always been small - really small," shares Jennifer, 33, of Santa Clarita. "I was totally out of proportion. Having tiny breasts affected me so much that when I graduated from high school, my parents offered to pay for implants - that's how bad my body shape affected my self esteem, my relationships, my choices, my life!"
Treatments & Tricks for a Better Beach Bod
R. Black, 50, hit her half-century milestone the same year she got divorced. The customer-service representative didn't let those things hold her back from investing in herself, though; she was ready to schedule both a lower face lift and repair of a previous breast augmentation within months of each other.
Eliminating fat has never been so cool, thanks to a state-of-the-art technology called CoolSculpting. This innovative method contours your body for the ultimate in aesthetics by freezing unwanted fat. No surgery, no downtime - just a slimmer, more toned and defined "you."

Summer vacation is the perfect time to schedule a Mommy Makeover.
"Fat, when positioned appropriately, makes you look youthful," says Dr. Justin Heller, Valencia's favorite plastic surgeon. As we age, we lose fat and collagen - resulting in areas of laxity and signs of aging. This is very apparent in the face around the eyes, mouth and jowls but also occurs in all areas of our body. It is with this understanding that Dr. Heller performs his distinctive face and body sculpting procedures.
"After my divorce, I lost over 120 pounds. When I got married, I was tiny with a small frame. I only weighed 100 pounds on my wedding day! But I had a large baby and my body changed over the course of my relationship," says Kelly of Valencia. "When I dropped the weight, I felt even worse about myself. There was so much extra skin and my boobs were totally gone," says the Heller Plastic Surgery patient.
"I would definitely do it again," says DM, a recent patient of Heller Plastic Surgery in Valencia. "I look like me, only younger! If you compared the 'me' of today with a photo from a decade ago, we'd look the same. Dr. Heller is really a blessing."
