Having a baby is a joyous occasion. But while nothing compares to motherhood, many women find themselves struggling to get their pre-pregnancy body back. Sometimes, it’s impossible with diet and exercise to return to that pre-pregnancy state. Whether you’re struggling with extra skin, excess fat, stretched out stomach muscles, stretchmarks, or misshaped breasts, our mommy makeovers address the issues mother’s face following pregnancy. Some common procedures in our mommy makeovers include a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast lift or augmentation. Because every woman is different, our mommy makeovers are tailored for each woman based on her individual needs and problem areas.
If you’ve noticed fine lines and wrinkles on your face, but you don’t necessarily need a surgical facelift, a Vampire Facelift is an effective, non-invasive procedure that will leave you looking fresher and younger than you have in a long time. That’s because it uses your own stem cells to shape your face, eliminate wrinkles, and aid your body to grow new, younger tissue. Skin naturally begins to sag with age, we get more wrinkles, and our skin tends to turn a grey color due to lack of blood flow. A Vampire Facelift defies time and offers similar results to a traditional facelift – without an invasive procedure.
Over time, the skin on the face and neck can begin to sag or droop. Wrinkles become more prominent and gravity tends to take over; sometimes to the point when you look in the mirror, you barely recognize yourself. A facelift with one of our skilled physicians can counteract the effects of gravity, smooth your skin, and reduce wrinkles, giving you a natural, more youthful appearance.
Botox injections are a simple, non-invasive, out-patient procedure we offer to patients who want to smooth out their skin, reduce wrinkles, and minimize crow’s feet, forehead lines and other fine lines. It’s a safe affordable option that temporarily relaxes the muscles in the face.
People decide to get breast augmentation for a multitude of reasons. Maybe you breastfed your children and your breasts never returned to their pre-pregnancy shape, or maybe you lost a lot of weight and have noticed your breasts are less full and sag more. Whatever the reason, we understand it’s a personal decision. The best candidate for a breast augmentation procedure is healthy and isn’t pregnant or breast feeding. It’s also important the breasts be fully developed. Dr. Angelina will meet with you prior to surgery to discuss various options, explain the procedure, and discuss your medical history. During the consultation, you will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the procedure.
Heartburn can be annoying, but if it’s a chronic problem, it can cause all sorts of other dangerous issues. Chronic stomach acid build-up is called GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease. GERD can cause other serious complications if left untreated. IBI Healthcare Institute offers reflux surgery to repair or replace the valve at the bottom of the esophagus when medicines don’t work.

Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) happens when your stomach contents come back up into your esophagus. Stomach acid that touches the lining of your esophagus can cause heartburn, also called acid indigestion.
Does GER have another name?
Doctors also refer to GER as
- acid indigestion
- acid reflux
- acid regurgitation
Take the first step on your journey to a healthy life
If you’ve struggled for years to get the weight off and nothing seems to work, you may be a good candidate for weight loss surgery. According to the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, if you have a Body Mass Index over 40 or are more than 100 lbs overweight – or if your BMI exceeds 35 and you have other obesity-related issues such as Type II Diabetes, you may be a good candidate for bariatric surgery. There are multiple types of Bariatric Surgery that help patients lose weight by reducing the size of the stomach either with a gastric band, by removing a portion of the stomach, or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch. Long-term studies show Bariatric Surgery can cause significant long-term weight loss, recovery from diabetes, it can improve cardiovascular risk factors, and prolong your life.
For patients not too keen on surgery, our offices offer a non-invasive Gastric balloon option.

The balloon causes patients to feel full faster and to remain that way, cutting down on hunger and cravings in a safe manner and helping them lose weight.
