Mommy Makeover is the popular name for a group of plastic surgery procedures which repair the changes and problems that happen to a woman’s body after pregnancy and childbirth. There is no doubt about it – this is major elective surgery. So to help you understand the very important details which turn a good result into an outstanding result, this week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today, we have a Mommy Makeover world expert joining us. Your host Edmonton cosmetic dermatologist, Dr Barry Lycka talks with Dr Brian S. Glatt, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon from Morristown, New Jersey. Dr Glatt shares with us what a ‘Mommy Makeover’ is and the typical procedures included within it, and also discusses with Dr Lycka why women turn to plastic surgery after pregnancy. The two doctors also talk about the importance of planning the procedure and managing the recovery period. Above all they highlight how truly life-changing this surgery can be and share happy anecdotes of how patients have benefitted from it in many ways.

We blogged and posted on our Facebook page yesterday about the FDA’s approval of Allergan’s Juvederm Voluma XC – one of the most highly anticipated non-surgical treatment options for age related volume loss in the midface/cheek area. What’s different about Voluma? It is the first FDA approved injectable filler product specifically formulated to fill the cheeks and midface. Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Brian S. Glatt, MD, FACS will be one of the first 200 physicians in the nation to receive Juvederm Voluma XC for his patients. The latest information about Juvederm Voluma XC, including product arrival date, which we expect to be within the month, will be posted here in our blog and on our Facebook page. We at Premier Plastic Surgery Center of New Jersey are very excited about this new product and want to “fill you in” (pun intended).
- As people age, the midface area can lose volume, causing the cheeks to flatten out and the skin to droop and sag. Juvederm Voluma XC is a gel that is injected into the cheek area to gently lift the sagging skin, producing a natural, more youthful appearance.
- Juvederm Voluma XC is a modified form of hyalouronic acid, a natural complex sugar that occurs within the body.
- Juvederm Voluma XC is made with a proprietary technology, VYCROSS, which results in a smooth gel and contributes to the lift capacity and the duration of the product. The product also contains a small amount of lidocaine to help numb the treatment area.
- The results of Juvederm Voluma XC are long-lasting – up to two years.
If you have any questions about Juvederm Voluma XC or any other injectable fillers please contact our Morristown office at 973-889-9300.
Today, the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) granted approval to Allergan, Inc. for the release of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA(TM) XC.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA(TM) XC is the first and only filler approved to temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area in adults over the age of 21, creating a more youthful but natural appearance of the face, with results lasting up to two years.
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Brian S. Glatt, MD, FACS will be among one of the first Plastic Surgeons nationwide to offer this exciting new product!
Follow our blog and Facebook page (link below) and be among the first to hear of Voluma’s arrival in our office. If you have any questions or need additional information please call our Morristown, NJ office at 973-889-9300.

Premier Plastic Surgery Center of New Jersey in partnership with The Woman’s Club of Morristown, is hosting a “Bra Drive” to benefit women in need. New and lightly used bras can be dropped off at the Woman’s Club headquarters, 51 South Street, Morristown, weekdays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., or, if more convenient, at the office of Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Brian S. Glatt, MD, FACS, 182 South Street, Suite 9 in Morristown. The cutoff date for collection is October 25, 2013.
If the donated bra is new, the tags should be left on. Previously worn bras merely need to be laundered. All sizes and styles of bras are needed, including specialized bras like post-surgery and maternity bras. The garments need to be in good condition,with functional clasps and straps.
In past years bras have been donated to Dress for Success of Mercer and Morris Counties, and last year we were able to provide hundreds of bras to women impacted by Super Storm Sandy. After local donations of usable bras, the remaining items are sent to The Bra Recyclers, a textile recycling company which distributes bras around the world to women and girls in transition. The Arizona-based firm notes that bras are one of the most requested items in shelters and transitional programs worldwide. Its fourth annual Bra Recycling Month ties into October’s traditional observance of breast cancer awareness and domestic violence awareness month.
The Woman’s Club of Morristown is also sponsoring a Zumbathon to assist with the Bra Drive. This will be held on Tuesday, October 8, at 7 p.m. at their facility. Admission is a bra donation. For more information contact ESS@wcomt.org or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Although Botox Cosmetic injections have been given to alleviate Crow’s feet for years, most people do not realize that this was considered an “off-label” use. Today the FDA has given its formal approval for use of Allergan’s Botox Cosmetic in this area to improve moderate to severe crow’s feet.
“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved a new use for Botox Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe lateral canthal lines, known as crow’s feet, in adults. Botox Cosmetic is the only FDA approved drug treatment option for lateral canthal lines.
The FDA approved Botox Cosmetic in 2002 for the temporary improvement of glabellar lines (wrinkles between the eyebrows, known as frown lines), in adults. Botox Cosmetic works by keeping muscles from tightening so wrinkles are less prominent.
“This additional indication will provide people with a new FDA approved treatment option for those seeking a smoother appearance by temporarily minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet at the sides of the eyes,” said Susan Walker, M.D., director of the Division of Dermatology and Dental Products in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.
Botox Cosmetic is administered via intramuscular injections. Treatment for both frown lines and crow’s feet can be given at the same time. Botox Cosmetic’s safety and effectiveness for treating lateral canthal lines were established in two clinical efficacy and safety studies.”
To find how you can benefit from Botox Cosmetic call the Morristown office of Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Brian S. Glatt, MD, FACS at 973-889-9300 to schedule an appointment.
