Make Today Your Day

Today is the day for Angela. She is secure in herself and has always known the effects that having children would have on her body, and she loves nothing more than being a mom. Recently, though, she has noticed the effects of delivering and breast-feeding her two children. She lost nearly a cup size and gained some loose skin around the abdomen that just hasn’t responded to diet and exercise. Angela has always felt like this is a small price to pay for having happy, healthy children. However, since she and her husband have made the mutual decision to not have any more children, she has started to want her C cup and tight tummy back.

She feels now is the time to have a breast augmentation and tummy tuck done to recapture her previous figure. Plus, the cost of cosmetic procedures hasn’t risen like other sectors within the healthcare industry, so they are affordable options.

Angela has researched “Mommy Makeovers” and wants to talk to Dr. Schutte at Front Range Plastic Surgery in Loveland. Her friend, Denise, saw Dr. Schutte for some liposuction last year and loves the results. Prior to Denise having liposuction, Angela was unaware of the improvements in liposuction over the past decade and now feels comfortable with the procedure.

Today is the day for Angela because she is calling Front Range Plastic Surgery to schedule her private and personal consultation with Dr. Schutte.

Will today be your day too?

Mommy Makeovers Make Sense

There is a rising trend in plastic surgery offices. “Mommy Makeovers” are becoming more popular among mothers after delivery. There are many options for women who are feeling the effects of delivery and breast-feeding. You may think that if you want a tummy tuck or breast augmentation, that you will have to drive to a bigger city to see an experience professional plastic surgeon. However, Front Range Plastic Surgery is right here in Loveland, and Dr. Warren Schutte is certified by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of General Surgery, so you won’t have to go far to recapture your pre-motherhood look.

There are many procedures that mothers are seeking out for their makeovers, most of which address the abdomen and breasts.

  • Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty: This is a major procedure that is best to address after you have finished delivering children. It reduces loose skin and excessive fat from the lower and middle abdomen.

  • Breast Lift,  or mastopexy: This procedure helps raise, reshape, and restore firmness to breast that are sagging from some loss of elasticity in the skin.

  • Breast Augmentation: It is not uncommon for breast-feeding to reduce the volume or symmetry of a mother’s breast. This procedure, with the help of breast implants, restores that volume and symmetry to their pre-pregnancy look or beyond.

  • Liposuction: Pregnancy and lactation promote increases in fat-storage. We remove that excessive fat in the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, as well as the knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck.

We can help you regain that pre-pregnancy look, while maintaining your warm glow of motherhood. Visit our site for more details.

Why Select a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon?

What does it mean to be Board Certified?

Dr. Warren Schutte is dual board certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Board Certified doctors voluntarily meet additional standards beyond basic licensing. They demonstrate their expertise by earning Board Certification through one of the 24 Member Boards that are part of the not-for-profit American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS).

Each doctor earns initial Board Certification by passing a written and, in some cases, an oral examination created and administered by the Member Board in his or her specialty. This is just the first step in the career-long learning and assessment process required by the rigorous ABMS MOC® program. To maintain Board Certification, a doctor must actively keep pace with the latest advances in his or her specialty and demonstrate best practices for patient safety, communications and ethics.

This means that Dr. Schutte has met the rigorous standards required for certification including:

  • Graduation from an accredited medical school
  • Completion of a 5 year general surgery residency
  • Completion of plastic surgery residency
  • Passed comprehensive exams from each of the specialty boards.
  • Complete continuing medical education, including patient safety each year
  • Performs surgery only in accredited, state-licensed or Medicare certified facilities
  • Adheres to a strict Code of Ethics

Certification matters:  You can visit the American Board of Medical Specialties website at http://www.certificationmatters.org to check to see if your doctor is board certified and learn more about what is required to be board certified and maintain certification.

Many types of physicians may perform plastic surgery services.  Their training may be in areas such as family practice, emergency services or ENT.  They may even say they are board certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.  The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery is not part of the American Board of Medical Specialties. Patients should use caution when seeking plastic surgery services to make sure their physician has the necessary training to provide safe and effective plastic surgery services.

The Many Benefits of Self Confidence

Did you get a chance to read our last blog yet? If you did, then you already know that confidence enhances lives! To recap, we talked about how confidence gives you the strength to truly be yourself, and how it draws others to you. Whether you turn to Front Range Plastic and Reconstructive surgery for a breast reduction or for a facelift in Loveland, we have what it takes to give you the confidence boost you need! The following is a list of a few of the many benefits of self-confidence:

  • Builds trust- When we are confident in ourselves, it not only helps you to trust yourself, but it encourages others to trust you as well. When someone is speaking to you confidently and concisely, our natural instinct is to trust them and believe them.
  • Improves communication- People who don’t have self-confidence tend to have trouble communicating with others, which could be holding you back in both social situations and in your workplace. When your confidence is at a healthy level, you will feel brave enough to speak up and connect with the world.
  • Gives off the perception of competence- People who give confident answers and advice, are much more likely to be perceived as competent than those who lack confidence. This perception of competence can positively affect you in both your personal life and professional life.

Are you looking to become more confident in your body and your life? If so, it is time to turn to Front Range Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Our experienced, board certified doctor can help you decide which procedure is right for you.

Are You a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

Do you find yourself covering up and hiding your body, instead of confidently showing off what you have to offer? Whether you have just lost a great deal of weight and you now have loose skin that you need to get rid of, or you are looking for a bit of helping removing some of the fat from your belly –you may find the answer you’ve been looking for with a tummy tuck in Loveland.

A tummy tuck, often referred to as an abdominoplasty, can help you to get the kind of body that you want, but you should keep in mind that it is a surgery, and it isn’t for everyone. So, how can you tell if you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck? The only way to know for sure is to come in for a consultation with our plastic surgeon, but the following is a general guideline of the kinds of candidates that qualify:

  • In general, you are in pretty good shape, but even with a healthy diet and exercise program, you are unable to get rid of stubborn fat deposits or loose skin in your abdomen.
  • You’ve had several pregnancies, and your abdominal skin and muscles have been contorted and stretched to a point where they can’t naturally return to normal.

If you feel you qualify for a tummy tuck, please schedule your consultation with our surgeon today!

Look and Feel Great for the Holidays

With the holiday  season in full swing, it is easy to get so caught up in all of hustle and bustle and forget to take a few moments for yourself. That “me time” is what rejuvenates us, keeps us young, and makes us feel great! If you are looking for a great excuse to get  in some of that important “me time”, while at the same time reversing the clock and making yourself feel great, we have a wonderful choice for you. We are Front Range Plastic Surgery and Reconstructive Surgery, and we are your source for facelifts in Loveland!

Fighting the effects of aging may seem like an uphill battle, especially if your only weapon is expensive wrinkle creams that don’t really work, but with a facelift, you can turn back the clock once and for all. No, a facelift won’t stop the process of aging or give you your old energy levels back, but it can revitalize your confidence! Imagine smiling brightly and confidently, without having to give a second thought to your wrinkles –that is the real gift that a facelift can give you.

The holiday season is a crazy time of year! Don’t get so caught up in everything there is to do, to cook, and to buy, that you forget about taking some time for yourself. Give yourself the gift of confidence and beauty that you truly deserve by turning to Front Range Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Visit our site or give us a call today to schedule your free, confidential consultation with our experienced doctor.

Making That Holiday Dress Fit

You can feel that chill in the air, the lights at Centerra are up and sparkling. You know it’s time to go shopping, but as you try on dress after dress, you find that you are less than satisfied with the fit. It’s either too small around your waist or too big around your chest, and nothing is very flattering to your unique figure. We understand the struggle, and we know that it isn’t just a frustration you experience once a year. For this reason, we offer the breast augmentation and plastic surgery services Loveland loves.

This time of the year is usually about everyone else–their needs, their presents, giving back, paying it forward, volunteering and so much more. While these are all great things to do, it’s important to not forget that taking care of yourself is important, too. When you are wearing oversized clothes just to hide your figure, it’s time to consider a procedure that will enhance your confidence, your already beautiful body, and the way you fit into that little black dress.

You are a strong, kind, loving woman. Whether you’ve needed a reduction due to cancer, or you’ve always been unhappy about the way you look, we can help. Our office is supportive, understanding and we really listen to your needs. We work hard to make you comfortable and help you through every step of the process, so you can always be confident about the service you are receiving and your choice.
