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
"Look no further! Dr Suzanne Trott is hands down the best plastic surgeon. When you're spending a fair amount of money on something regarding your appearance, it can be scary. Dr Trott makes you feel so comfortable and listens to your every concern. There is never a sense of rushing you out or selling you on procedures you don't need. She just genuinely cares about her patients and doing a really good job. A good job would be a huge understatement...you'll look fucking amazing after! I also think by going to a female plastic surgeon, she understands how you want to look and puts in the time to give you exactly what you want without shortcutting. Thank you, Suzanne, for making me look like the best version of myself!"- M.L. / Yelp / Feb 01, 2019
"Can't say enough great things about Dr. Trott. A true professional be it injections or full on surgery. She is extremely knowledgeable. She gets what your are hoping to achieve all while managing concerns and expectations. We have had excellent results with both. In addition, she is there for you 100% post procedure. After a very long surgery she was available 24 hours a day via phone and even came into to the office on a holiday to meet us and make sure everything was ok. Beautiful results due to her time and attention to detail. Love her!"- E.D. / Yelp / Oct 08, 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 wish I could give Dr. Trott 20 stars. She is not only the most incredible doctor I've ever met, but a wonderful and genuine human being. I've had two major surgeries with her. The first was to remove a large benign lipoma tumor that she was able to take out without even leaving a scar. The second was breast reconstruction and fat graphing. I had another tumor in my breast that doubled in size. I had never been through surgery before these 2 tumors grew and was terrified to go under the knife. Dr. Trott made all my fears and worries disappear. She listens to all your concerns and makes recommendations that suit exactly what you want. Not to mention, she is an actual an artist. For having two large tumors take over, Dr. Trott left me looking even better than before!! My breasts are so natural looking no one would ever know I went through reconstruction. I can't thank her enough for taking care of me (health & beauty wise) and having my best interest in mind. I highly recommend her for all cosmetic needs; she truly is the best doctor I've ever met! Thank you, Dr. Trott!"- L.B. / Yelp / Jun 18, 2018
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.
