Dear Patients, As COVID-19 continues to spread, the healthcare system is changing to keep everyone safe. Following the guidelines set forth by the CDC, WHO, Department of Health, our state and federal officials and the American Academy of Dermatology, we are adapting new practice patterns to maintain your care while protecting the health of all of our patients and employees. Below are the steps we will be taking to help flatten the curve. • We will be closing our Middletown office until further notice. • Limiting the hours our Newark location is open. • We are decreasing our schedules to comply with social distancing. • Our practitioners will determine what essential, urgent cases need to remain on the schedule and seen in the office. Patients scheduled for non-essential or elective services will be rescheduled. • We have our clinical teams working diligently to assist patients through telephone and non-contact methods of communication. • Virtual visits (telemedicine) for appointments that video conferencing is appropriate. • Staff members are available via phone Monday thru Friday from 8 am-4 pm to answer your questions and assist you with scheduling. We have implemented more stringent sterility procedures • Only scheduled patients will be allowed into the building, exceptions are patients under the age of 18 or handicap/disabled (only one companion will be allowed to accompany with these exceptions). If someone accompanies you, they will be asked to wait in the car. • Our waiting room will be arranged for social-distancing. • In an effort to limit patients in waiting rooms, after you check in you will be taken to exam room to wait for your provider. • All exam rooms will be thoroughly cleaned with approved disinfectant between each patient. • Discontinued meetings with drug representatives and vendors. • Our clinical teams are working diligently to assist through telephone and non-contact methods of communication. • Telemedicine/Virtual visits for appointments that video conferencing is appropriate. Remember if you are experiencing or have come in contact with someone experiencing fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat or respiratory issues, have been in contact with anyone that has the Coronavirus, have traveled out of the country in the last 14 days, have been on a cruise ship in the last 14 days or have been hospitalized within the past 30 days, please stay home, we will reschedule your appointment. We are monitoring this situation on a daily basis and will continue to provide updates should there be any changes. We appreciate your patience and the support through this challenging time. Stay safe and healthy!

Mommy Makeover

After pregnancy and childbirth, women may find that they have some remaining fat in the abdomen, love handles, thighs and buttocks. Their breasts may become deflated and saggy, and there may be loose skin on the tummy. Even with dieting and exercise, it doesn’t seem to help. The goal of a mommy makeover is to restore the shape and appearance of a woman’s body after childbearing.  A mommy makeover is typically performed as a single stage procedure. There are many techniques used to perform a mommy makeover, and many factors should be taken into consideration when choosing which techniques are best:

  • Desired amount of restoration
  • Placement of the incisions
  • Type of implant used

Possible procedures in a mommy makeover

Mommy makeover surgery is a highly individualized procedure. You should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.

You may be a candidate for mommy makeover surgery if:

  • You are in good medical health
  • You are at your ideal body weight
  • You have a positive outlook and realistic expectations
  • You are finished with child-bearing

The final results of mommy makeover surgery may not be apparent for several months after surgery.

Over time, the implants will settle and the scar lines will improve, although they’ll never disappear completely. There are trade-offs, but most women feel these are small compared to the large improvement in their self-confidence after surgery.

To learn more about a mommy makeover, schedule a consultation with Dr. Roussalis today! He is an experienced plastic surgeon who can help you restore your shape. Contact us by calling (302) 998-8007 or by filling out our online contact form.
