Embracing Change: Menopause Makeover at Chicago Iteld Plastic Surgery

By: Dr. Lawrence Iteld


Menopause is a natural phase of life that women experience as they age. However, with this transition comes a myriad of changes, both physical and emotional. While some women embrace the changes that come with menopause, others may feel a loss of confidence as they navigate through this new chapter of life. 

Menopause brings about changes in the body such as hormonal fluctuations, weight gain, skin changes, and alterations in breast size and shape. These changes often impact a woman’s self-esteem and body image, leading some to seek ways to regain their confidence and feel more comfortable in their own skin.

Because you deserve to look terrific and feel great about yourself at every life stage.

Surgical Options: 

  • Facelift/Neck Lift: As estrogen levels decline during menopause, the skin loses elasticity and wrinkles may become more prominent. A facelift can help tighten loose skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, restoring a more youthful appearance. Add a neck lift, and lose those unwanted jowls and double chins.  
  • Breast Augmentation, Reduction and/or Lift: Changes in hormone levels during menopause can cause breasts to lose firmness and volume. Breast augmentation or a breast lift can help restore fullness and improve the shape of the breasts, enhancing a woman’s silhouette. Increased weight may also affect breast size. A reduction with a lift can help here.  
  • Body Contouring: Weight gain and changes in body shape are common during menopause due to hormonal changes and metabolism slowdown. Procedures such as liposuction, tummy tucks, butt lift (BBL), and thigh lifts can help sculpt and contour the body, addressing areas of stubborn fat and loose skin.   
  • Fat Transfer: Fill in hollowed areas on the body by removing fat from an area where you don’t want it and transfer it into another area that could benefit from additional volume. This is great for large areas, such as the breasts or buttocks, or on delicate features, such as the under-eye area, or cheeks. 

Non-Surgical Options 

  • Skin Rejuvenation: Menopause often leads to a loss of collagen and moisture in the skin, resulting in dryness, thinning, and an increase in wrinkles. Non-surgical treatments such as Botox, dermal fillers, biostimulators, and Morpheus8 can help with all these issues. 
  • Laser therapy: Improve skin texture, tone, elasticity, and hyperpigmentation, with one of the many laser treatments we offer. They reduce the signs of aging by targeting and resurfacing damaged surface skin cells. 
  • Skincare Products: It’s time to upgrade what you’re using to a medical grade line that’s anti-aging and will help give you a smooth, glowing complexion.
