During menopause, hormonal changes can create big changes in a woman's appearance. There are some surgical and nonsurgical procedures that can be done to reverse these changes.

"Menopause causes hormonal changes that can change the distribution of fat in a woman's body. Generally, women store fat in their thighs and buttock areas. Or as postmenopausal women store fat on their abdomen, back in addition to their butt and thighs, a woman's shape goes from pear like to apple like," Dr. Norman Rowe of Rowe Plastic Surgery told The Blast exclusively.

"Aging in general produces laxity of the skin and poor tone. These two factors produce the perfect storm for unwanted changes in a woman's appearance."
