What we offer


Mommy Makeover Package

Now is your time! You have dedicated time to your children and family and now it is time for you to feel comfortable and confident in your own skin.

Our mommy makeover procedures are ideal for women who have tried diet and exercise without desired results and for those who have had one or more children. Mommy makeover procedures are designed to help remove some extra inches around your waist and enhance the appearance of tired looking breasts.

Our mommy makeover procedures combine tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift and breast augmentation to help women look and feel their best.

Mommy Makeover addresses the problems that occur after pregnancy or even just with time. This involves skin laxity of the abdomen, stretching of the abdominal muscles, drooping breast, loss of breast tissue and collections of fat.

Treatment of the Abdomen

The skin laxity and widening of the abdominal muscles is usually treated with an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck. This results in a low scar which can be hidden in your swimsuit. At the same time, we can address the sides or love handles with liposuction. If you don’t have a lot of skin laxity, you may be a candidate for liposuction alone.

Treatment of the Breast

With pregnancy and over time, there is loss of breast tissue and the skin droops. The treatment involves a breast lift to reposition the breast tissue to where it belongs. If there is a loss of breast volume, a breast implant is also inserted. The treatment of the breast is individualized to the patient. Options include breast lift alone, breast augmentation alone or a combination of breast lift and augmentation.

Treatment of Fat Collections

Treatment of fat collections is achieved through liposuction.

Non-Surgical Options

You may be a candidate for a non-surgical mommy makeover. This technique uses Pelleve and PelleFirm to tighten the skin of your abdomen, arms, and thighs and help decrease the appearance of cellulite.

Combination of Procedures

During your consultation, Dr. Patel will develop a customized treatment plan based on your areas of concern. Our goals are to help you age gracefully so that your outer beauty reflects your inner beauty. We want you to look and feel your best, and are committed to the highest level of patient care, safety, and satisfaction. Dr. Patel will also discuss with you the recovery process.

AquaClean™ Facial

Skin dehydration causes facial skin to look dull and tired.

The Aquaclean™ Facial uses a 3 Step process to:

  • Improve Skin Glow
  • Restore Tone, Texture & Clarity
  • Remove Dermal Bacteria
  • Deep Pore Cleansing
  • Blackhead & Whitehead Removal
  • Healthy Cell Plumping
  • Smooth & Hydrate Fine Lines and Wrinkles

 The first step involves cleansing the skin with gentle aquafoliation and liquid cleansing. The second step lifts and smoothes with gentle infusion of Salicylic Acid Solution to naturally loosen and remove blackheads, dead skin cells and other impurities. The third step hydrates and plumps by moisturizing and replenishing the skin with a unique combination of liquid vitamins, Hyaluronic Acid, Purslane Oleracaea extracts, Urea and aloe vera.

The AquaClean Facial takes about 20 minutes and leaves your skin looking radiant.

Radiofrequency Skin Revitalization

As we age, collagen production slows down causing our skin to lose laxity and firmness. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines form leaving you with smile lines, crow’s feet, and other bothersome creases. Pellevé is a non-invasive radiofrequency solution to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without needles or surgery. Pellevé is a safe and effective option for a no downtime procedure that gives you a refreshed youthful appearance. A series of treatments is recommended to boost the collagen rebuilding process.

How Pellevé Works
During treatment, the GlideSafe® handpiece gradually delivers radiofrequency energy through the epidermis into the dermis. Heating of the dermal layer initiates your body’s natural response to protect, heal, and grow NEW collagen.

  • 1 – 3 days after your procedure, the area treated will have a “post-treatment glow”
  • 4 – 15 days after treatment, your body’s natural reaction to heal comes into play as fibroblasts become present, and the collagen rebuilding process begins
  • 15+ days post-treatment collagen synthesis and formal remodeling occurs.

The collagen regrowth process will continue days, weeks, even months after treatment. Thus, it is recommended to receive at least 3-5 treatments about 4 weeks apart, so you are re-boosting the collagen building process and getting optimal results.

Pellevé is a comfortable, safe procedure that doesn’t have any downtime. Patients have reported that it feels similar to a relaxing hot stone massage. You might have slight redness after the procedure which is caused by your skin’s elevated temperatures during the treatment, and will subside soon afterwards. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after your treatment.
