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."
"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."
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.
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."
If you've been considering breast implants but have been on the fence for fear that your augmentation would leave you looking more "beach ball" than "bathing beauty," you owe it to yourself to learn more about the newest implant technology and methods developed by board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Justin Heller.
Saggy, flat, dimpled, or entirely non-existent... That's how most over-30 women describe their tushes. "As women age, their rear loses definition," says Dr. Justin Heller, a board-certified plastic surgeon. "As the years pass, we lose fat where we want it and put it where we don't. It's Father Time's cruel joke, but we can outsmart the process with liposuction and lifts," explains the Yale trained surgeon.
Look your best just in time for the holiday season
You usually start thinking about eyelid surgery at the end of the day, when the weight of the tone-less skin on and around your eyes has finally taken its toll and you find yourself feeling more tired than you should. You complain to a co-worker more often than you'd like to admit: "I literally cannot keep my eyes open." But you also find your mind wandering when you put on your makeup or stare in the mirror for more than a moment. "When did I get so old?," you wonder.
When it comes to turning back the clock, there's really no better way to fool Father Time than a facelift.

Back-story: My three children are my beloved blessings - and yet they've destroyed my body. I'm all about embracing my "stripes" (Stretch marks!) and loving myself, but six years after my last pregnancy, I've come to the conclusion that this is something I need to get back the confidence I had years ago! I'll absolutely love clothes shopping again. I will love going to the beach and pool again. It comes down to this: I miss looking hot. For me, this is the right call.
