Things to do

Charlotte moms will get a beauty boost at My Turn [Partner]

Being a mom means spending nights awake with your kids, days watching your little one explore their environment and possibly having to work a full-time job while nurturing this new soul. It may feel indulgent to think about your appearance, or even to carve out time for yourself. But as the saying goes, you can’t pour from an empty cup, and it’s impossible to take care of everyone when you feel depleted.

That’s why the free event It’s My Turn: Cocktails & Conversations with Dr. Robert Graper, FACS and Dr. Garrett Harper on February 23 will be a fun night out for moms and friends to learn how they want to present themselves physically in the world. For two hours at The Ballantyne Hotel, attendees will enjoy light bites and wine while having the opportunity to ask about a full range of cosmetic offerings for breast, body and face.

During the event, Dr. Graper and Dr. Harper will chat with guests one-on-one and answer questions about the best options for physical changes, from enhancing breast fullness, streamlining your waistline and non-surgical aesthetic enhancements. They’ll also talk about facial treatments that can be done right in their office.


If you’re on the fence about making cosmetic changes to your appearance, the doctors will talk about how you can see your results before any actual surgery. Their Vectra 3D Imaging technology gives you a step-by-step look at your possible breast procedure with your own photo, so you can see what you may look like in (almost) real time.

Guests will have access to exclusive specials just by attending this event, as well as Door Prize drawings.

Even if you decide surgery is not for you, there are plenty of non-surgical options to leave you looking and feeling fresh. Here are just a few of them:

CoolSculpting. This procedure, which you can learn more about at the event, smooths areas resistant to exercise and dietary changes. Ideal for those who want a non-surgical option that takes only about an hour per area treated.  There’s also a Free Treatment Guarantee.

Injectables and Fillers. Achieve a rejuvenated facial appearance without surgery with injectables and fillers. Reduce or eliminate wrinkles, lines, facial folds, add volume.

Cellfina.  Reduce cellulite in only one procedure with this new FDA-cleared procedure.

Skin Care Needs. From a variety of peels to dermaplaning, a manual exfoliation method (included in all Graper Peels) you’ll have improved skin with a vibrant glow after treatments with one of the four licensed medical aestheticians.
