Figure Friendly Easter Foods

iStock_000008383368XSmallDuring last winter’s holiday season, South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery shared a list of holiday treats that are safe for patients watching their weight. Since Easter is upon us (and bikini season is right around the corner!), we thought we would share some figure-friendly Easter treats. Here are a few ideas to help you celebrate the holiday without packing on the pounds.

Healthy Lemon Squares

Create a crust using whole-wheat pastry or white flour, powdered sugar, salt and coconut oil mixed together in a food processor. Press the crust into a greased 8X8 pan and cook for 10 minutes. While the crust is cooking, combine the ingredients for the filling: lemon juice, powdered sugar, lite tofu, lemon zest and cornstarch. After letting the crust cool, pour the filling on top and cook for 26 minutes. Let it cool and refrigerate it for two hours to let the filling set.

Vanilla-Lemon Berry Parfaits

Mix low-fat yogurt with fat-free vanilla pudding, lemon curd and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, stir together honey, lemon zest, lemon juice and mixed berries. Assemble the parfaits by alternating the yogurt mixture with the berry mixture. Garnish with fresh mint.

Crispy Easter Nests

Mix a few drops of green food die in a bag of sweetened flake coconut, and set aside. Melt Marshmallow Fluff until soft and stir in Rice Krispies and chocolate chips. Put a few spoonfuls of the cereal mixture in a cupcake liner, and let cool. Then, fill the nest with some coconut and top with a few Jordan almonds.

Chocolate-Covered Fruit

Microwave high-quality chocolate chips on 50-percent power (stirring every 30 seconds) until the mixture is smooth. Then, dip strawberries, grapes or banana slices into the melted chocolate mixture, or drizzle the mixture on top of the fruit. For an extra special finish, roll the fruit in chopped almonds, walnuts or pecans.

Not the baking kind? Annie’s cheddar bunnies are an excellent festive treat you can pick up at the grocery store. They also come in a whole-wheat variety.

Although having children is a joyous time in one’s life, pregnancy and breastfeeding often leave women with certain aesthetic concerns, including loose abdominal skin, separated abdominal muscles that have lost their tone and sagging and / or deflated-looking breasts.

At South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery, we offer patients in Fort Lauderdale mommy makeover surgery to correct the aesthetic concerns that typically develop as a result of having children. However, we realize that not all moms share the same cosmetic complaints. That is why we often customize mommy makeover surgery to address each patient’s specific concerns. Here are our top three mommy makeover combinations.

Tummy Tuck + Breast Lift Surgery

With abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, your board-certified plastic surgeon makes a horizontal incision across the lower abdomen. The incision is strategically positioned in the pubic area, where it can be concealed by the underwear or bikini line. The surgeon eliminates any excess skin before repairing the underlying tissues including the damaged abdominal muscles. The remaining skin in then re-draped over the new flatter, toned abdomen before the incision is closed. The navel is repositioned so it is aligned with the new abdominal contour, using a second incision in the belly button.

Breast lift surgery is performed to raise drooping breasts to a higher, more youthful position on the chest wall. The surgeon again removes any excess skin, if needed, before repositioning the breast tissue higher up on the chest wall, thereby improving the look of sagging breasts.

Tummy Tuck + Breast Lift + Breast Augmentation Surgery

Sometimes, breast lift surgery is not enough to restore a beautiful appearance to the breasts. If you have lost a substantial amount of breast volume due to nursing, you may require surgical breast augmentation in your mommy makeover. We offer saline implants, silicone implants or natural breast augmentation (a technique that uses your own fat taken from another area of your body to enhance your breasts) to restore volume to deflated-looking breasts.

By combining tummy tuck, breast lift and breast augmentation procedures in your mommy makeover, we can address the cosmetic concerns that most often occur as a result of having children.

Tummy Tuck + Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

Perhaps your breasts did not suffer any aesthetic damage from breastfeeding, but you desire a lifted, curvier derrière. In this case, we can include Brazilian butt lift surgery in your mommy makeover procedure. With Brazilian butt lift, fat is taken from another area of your body that typically has an excess of fat cells, such as your hips or thighs. The fat cells are purified and then re-injected into the upper quadrant of your posterior to enhance the “S” curve that most of us desire. The aesthetic outcome is a more elevated, voluptuous derrière that other moms will envy!

The most important thing to note with mommy makeover surgery is that it can be customized specifically for you! During your consultation, your surgeon will listen to your aesthetic concerns, evaluate your anatomy and suggest an appropriate treatment protocol that best suits your specific needs.
