The Weiland Group Cosmetic Surgery + Skin Spa Anticipates an Increase in Mommy Makeovers

Mother’s Day Holiday Expected to Spur Interest

Las Vegas – April 26, 2011 – The Weiland Group Cosmetic Surgery + Skin Spa anticipates an increase in Mommy Makeovers for Mother’s Day as more women are choosing to transform their bodies and give themselves the gift of confidence. As the most recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) show, Mommy Makeover procedures throughout the country have increased by six percent in the past year, as more mothers are reversing the effects of childbearing and age. Mommy Makeover cosmetic surgery procedures include breast augmentations, breast lifts, liposuction and tummy tucks; procedures that reshape the body.

Dr. Stephen Weiland, co-founder of The Weiland Group in Las Vegas and a triple Board Certified plastic surgeon, says that he has seen this trend first hand as more mothers have taken the opportunity to get back to their pre-baby body. The Weiland Group provides numerous Mommy Makeover options including an innovative “No-Stitch Liposculpture” which re-contours areas of the body that may have changed with childbirth, such as hips, thighs, chest, buttocks or lower abdomen. This procedure is often combined with a tummy tuck that will flatten the abdomen and reshape the torso. A breast lift procedure that lifts and reshapes breasts to restore a more youthful look is also very popular and is often combined with a breast augmentation to enlarge breasts that have decreased in size after childbirth and breastfeeding.

“With more advanced techniques available, patient satisfaction is certainly up and with recovery time shorten for many of these procedures mothers do not have miss quality time with their families,” states Dr. Weiland. “Reversing the effects of childbirth by lifting and reshaping the breasts, re-contouring the abdomen, tightening the skin and reshaping the torso allows me to help mothers feel great about themselves which is important when raising families.”

Statistics from the ASPS illustrate that Mommy Makeovers have become increasingly popular across the nation. In fact, ASPS estimates that more than 620,000 Mommy Makeover procedures were performed on women age 20-54 in the United States in 2011. Across the nation, more than 290,000 women in this age group received breast augmentations and 75,000 women underwent breast lifts in 2011. Women in this age group also account for the majority of individuals receiving liposuction and tummy tucks, with more than 160,000 and 95,000 undergoing these procedures, respectively. Data compiled by the ASPS show that the occurrence of Mommy Makeovers nationally has increased by a total of 160 percent since 2000

The data further shows that Mommy Makeover procedures are most popular in the western states with tummy tucks in the western region of the country accounting for 30 percent of the total procedures of this type in the United States. Thirty-two percent of all liposuction and breast lift procedures as well as 36 percent of all breast augmentations occur in the western region. Further, the western region of the country accounted for the majority of the total cosmetic surgical procedures performed in the United States in 2011.

In addition to Mommy Makeover procedures, Dr. Weiland performs facial surgery for eyes, neck, nose and ear rejuvenation. The Weiland Group also offers injectables to soften fine lines and redefine facial features including Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse and Perlane, which according to the ASPS, ranked as the most popular injectables in 2011. Chemical peels and laser light treatments are also available to brighten skin and reduce the appearance of scarring and pigmented areas.
