What Happens During Menopause?

A woman reaches menopause when she has not experienced a period in 12 consecutive months. However, physical changes can begin several years before this occurs.

Common symptoms include:

  • Hot and cold flashes
  • Weight gain
  • Drenching night sweats
  • Urinary urgency
  • Insomnia
  • Eye or mouth dryness
  • Tender breasts
  • Mood swings

Menopause is also characterized by major hormonal fluctuations, which can contribute to unwanted fat throughout the body. Many women also note marked changes in their skin quality and to their breasts. In addition, efforts to tone up the body with diet and exercise are often unsuccessful. This is coupled with the normal signs of aging, such as sagging and volume loss in the face and body.

Benefits of Menopause Makeover

The menopause makeover is designed to address the cosmetic changes that often manifest due to menopause. This treatment is a combination of procedures that are customized to improve several areas of the body, yielding a comprehensive result. During your consultation, you will discuss your most bothersome areas of concern as Dr. Greenwald develops a treatment plan to help restore a more shapely, youthful appearance.

What Procedures Are Included?

A menopause makeover can include many different procedures, some of which include:

Tummy Tuck: Also called abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is performed to tighten and tone the midsection, which often experiences sagging due to hormone-related weight fluctuations. During the procedure, excess skin, fat, and tissue are removed from the abdomen, while underlying muscles are tightened to give the appearance of a firm tummy.

Breast Lift: With age and menopause also comes sagging breasts. A breast lift can benefit patients who desire a perkier appearance. This procedure can be completed with several incision techniques. Dr. Greenwald will use the most appropriate one based on your surgical needs as well as your desired result.

Liposuction: After menopause, it is common to notice that pockets of fat in the body are seemingly resistant to positive lifestyle changes. Liposuction is helpful in these cases, as it targets these specific areas to eliminate fat. Patients are left with a slimmer physique and beautiful body contours.

Fat Transfer: For complete body sculpting, fat transfer can be used to plump up areas of the body that are low in volume, such as the cheeks and lips, or even the buttocks. Liposuction is first used to remove fat from donor sites around the body. The fat is then prepared and skillfully injected into predetermined areas. The combination of fat removal and sculpting leaves patients with a shapely result.
