    The Tummy Tuck is a procedure to remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen, flattening and contouring the stomach to create a more youthful, hourglass shape. Many women experience excess skin and separation of the abdominal wall due to weight gain and following pregnancy, despite exercise and a healthy lifestyle the smoothness of the stomach can be almost impossible to regain with out the help of surgery. During a Tummy Tuck Dr McCluskey creates an internal corset to bring the abdominal wall back together, performs liposuction to create a more hourglass figure, and removes excess skin. As can be seen below the results are beautiful and has been described by patients as “life changing”, many patients experience a boost in self esteem and confidence following the procedure. The single scar lies below the panty line and becomes less visible with time. You can watch Dr McCluskey perform a Tummy Tuck here!

    Plastic surgeons and reality television shows popularized the term ‘mommy makeover’. It’s a common Google search term and there are over 3,000 Instagram posts with the hashtag #mommymakeover.

    So what is it?

    Put simply a mommy makeover is a cosmetic improvement of the breasts and tummy.  The goal of this combination of procedures is to restore a woman’s pre-baby body, but a mommy makeover also helps rejuvenate women who’ve lost weight.  Typically a mommy makeover combines breast augmentation and tummy tuck with or without liposuction of the waist.  The procedures are designed to lift & rejuvenate the breasts and also to flatten the tummy while removing loose skin and stretch marks.  The liposuction removes excess fat in the love handles, muffin-tops, and bra line (ie “back fat” or “back rolls”).


    During a mommy makeover I perform more than one procedure while the patient is under anesthesia thus I’m able to save time & money on surgical setup and anesthesia fees & I can pass these savings on to the patient.  Another huge advantage of combining multiple procedures such as breast and tummy rejuvenation is that there is only one recovery period!
