About Menopause Makeovers
Menopause sucks. This is not news. Waking up in a cold sweat, being hit by your own personal heat wave during the day, emotional mood swings, and changes in skin texture are symptoms almost all women experience during menopause. They are all addressed in the mainstream media and there are accepted remedies for them, like bioidentical hormones and skin rejuvenation treatments. What is not addressed is the most frustrating symptom of all: the fat deposits that suddenly collect around your middle, slowly hiding your waist. While diet and exercise may help some, you will probably not be able to remove this stubborn fat on your own. The Menopause Makeover is a procedure that double board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Suzanne Trott developed to address the frustrating stubborn fat deposits caused by hormonal changes during menopause. At Suzanne A. Trott, MD, FACS in Beverly Hills, CA, the Menopause Makeover uses liposculpture of the abdomen and flanks (lower back) and sometimes upper back to give recreate a long, lean waist for a more youthful shape.
"Dr. Trott has changed my life! I found her by getting recommendations from about 4 girlfriends who had the same procedure I was going in for. All were happy with their results, so I knew she was definitely someone I wanted to meet with. As soon as I met her for my initial consultation, I knew she was the surgeon for me. She is beyond friendly and warm and I knew I would be in good hands. She really took her time with me, showing me additional photos, thoroughly explaining the procedure to me. Aside from me really liking her work, I was happy with the fact that she only performs one surgery a day so she can take her time. I had met with another surgeon who would have slotted me as his 4th surgery for the day. Her surgical team is amazing, I didn't have one complication. She came to visit me at the aftercare facility and makes herself available to her patients by cellphone. Addy, her office manager, is so friendly and helpful. I am still healing but am already so happy with the results! Everyone I know tells me how amazing I look and that the work looks so natural. I literally cannot say enough good things about Dr. Trott. She is THE BEST!!!"- S.S. / Yelp / Jan 05, 2018
"I chose Dr. Trott from her glowing online reviews and I am so glad I did! She truly is as wonderful as everyone raves about. I had a breast reduction surgery that went a few hours longer than expected because she has so much attention to detail she wanted it to turn out perfect. And I am so happy with the result. What was really important to me was how kind and reassuring she was. I get very nervous in doctor's offices and was pretty scared for the actual surgery, but she was so accommodating? and didn't just shrug off my fears. She made me feel so comfortable and I really appreciate her for that. Plus, her office staff is the sweetest! I would recommend? Dr. Trott to anyone I know and you should definitely, definitely give her office a call!"- J.C. / Yelp / Aug 07, 2018
"I don't know if I've ever left a Yelp review before, but I just had to when it came to Dr Trott. I hardly even know how to get across how strongly I recommend her. She does incredible work. She's great at listening to what you want and any concerns you have. She's patient and caring, and you'll definitely be safe in her hands. She's also innovative. She's always doing research and staying up to date. I would trust her with my life - in fact, I literally have trusted her with my life and I'd do it again."- A.D. / Yelp / Feb 20, 2018
"55 Years Old, Two Kids, Total Body Lipo - Dr. Suzanne Trott is to the human body what Michelangelo was to marble. She is a master of both the science and art of body sculpting. A surprising result for me was how quickly I recovered. I attribute that partly because of Dr. Trott's skill and experience, and partly because of the confidence I had in her. My confidence was partly because of her reputation (she came with high recommendations from a couple of aestheticians I know), and also because of her ability to give a clear and understandable explanation of the whole process and her patience when answering questions. Dr. Trott had respect for me and my goals, worked with me to develop a plan, executed the plan, monitored the outcome, and I couldn't be happier with the results."- P.T. / RealSelf / Feb 17, 2018
"Dr. Suzanne Trott is to the human body what Michelangelo was to marble. She is a master of both the science and art of body sculpting. Dr. Trott performed extensive lipo for me, and I am amazed at the results. I am a 55 year old woman. I am active and pretty athletic. And sure, my body looks better than it has in 15 years, but one of my favorite things about my results is the balance and elegance of my movement with a better balanced body. My thighs and belly had grown disproportionately larger-- due to gravity and perhaps the natural redistribution that happens with aging. I really love the movement of my body now that things are back in balance. Another surprising result for me was how quickly I recovered.

Dr. Trott has been targeting the physical changes of menopause for fourteen years. During this time she has noticed many women, both during and after menopause, develop stubborn fat in their stomach. This tends to hide the natural curves of the waist, making them feel "boxy" and less comfortable in their clothes. Since these fat deposits are caused by hormonal changes, a healthy diet and exercise may not be able to affect this stubborn fat. The Menopause Makeover is designed for women who are frustrated by the changes to their body during and after menopause, including increased fat in the mid-section.
What to Expect
The Menopause Makeover is performed as an outpatient procedure at an accredited surgical facility in about 3 hours. During the patient's consultation, Dr. Trott will discuss the different liposuction options available and decide which method will be best for the patient's needs and goals. After the procedure, the patient will be put in compression garments to improve healing and reduce inflammation. After an observation period, patients will be allowed to leave with a responsible adult to start their recovery at home. Patients should schedule an appointment with Dr. Trott the day after surgery so their progress can be checked. To maintain results, patients should follow a healthy lifestyle after the procedure, including a balanced diet and regular exercise.
Menopause Makeover packages aren’t just necessarily about surgery, either. They can include the in-office procedures such as Botox, fillers, Instalift threads, fractionated lasers for complete resurfacing, or just our fabulous no-downtime Lasergenesis (best treatment before you go out ever!) We also have peels and lasers to help with red and brown discoloration, spider veins and even some of those bigger blue veins on your legs.
During your consultation, Dr. Trott will listen to your needs and concerns to create your unique Menopause Makeover treatment plan. Your Menopause Makeover may also include a breast reduction, as women sometimes find that their breasts increase several cup sizes due to hormonal changes around menopause. A surgical lift or nonsurgical skin treatment may also be included in your treatment plan to help you look and feel more beautiful.
