    A Mommy Makeover deals with all the problem areas that are associated with child bearing. The most common procedures for a mommy makeover are Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Tummy Tuck and Liposuction. This patient had previously undergone Breast Augmentation, and returned foe a Tummy Tuck with Liposuction. The main goals of a Tummy Tuck are to remove excess skin, tighten the abdominal wall which becomes stretched during pregnancy, and create a smooth, defined waist. As you can see this patient achieved all these things with Dr McCluskey for a beautiful result and all surgical incisions hidden below the panty line.

    Many patients who visit us for a consultation are unhappy with the size of their arms, and while general toning or weight loss may help, excess skin can still be an issue. Exercises that target the triceps will particularly help with toning and losing fat associated with the under arm but excess skin and targeted fat loss for this area would require a surgical solution. The procedures involved in this area would include liposuction and possibly an arm lift.


    Liposuction in the upper arm can have great results to remove excess fat and can help to shrink the skin. Arm liposuction is a relatively simple procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia or combined with other procedures. In cases where upper arm excess skin is also an issue, the only way to reduce the amount of extra skin is to surgically remove it. This procedure is called an arm lift and there are two types of incisions that can be made depending on the amount of excess skin. The first type involves an incision that will be hidden in the underarm and is suited to sagging of the upper arm that is common with aging. The second type of arm lift is designed for greater amounts of excess skin associated with extreme weight loss and involves an incision from the elbow to the armpit, in this case scarring is usually a concern for patients but the incision usually heals well with the scar fading over time. During recovery it is important to keep arms compressed, but under guidance from Dr McCluskey patients may resume their day-to-day activities and exercise to continue to tone and sculpt the arms with in a matter of weeks!

    These procedures allow patients to attain slimmer, more youthful looking arms with a relatively short recovery period and beautiful results!

    Liposuction is something most of us have heard of. Between celebrity plastic surgery stories, and plastic surgery television shows you’ve probably become familiar with the term and seen the great results but how much do you really know? Here are the five things every one who is interested in liposuction should know:


    1 Liposuction is safe and it can be performed under general or local anesthesia

    2 Dr. McCluskey performs tumescent liposuction.  This reduces pain and bruising after surgery.  

    3 Liposuction reduces fat in troublesome areas like love handles and the “saddlebags” but it is not a weight loss procedure.  

    4 It takes weeks to months for swelling to completely resolve after liposuction

    5 Patients can return to normal activities and exercise within 2-4 weeks after the procedure

    If you are interested in liposuction or any of our other procedures and would like to schedule a consultation, call us! 404-255-3555

    If you’re looking for a more ample derrière then you’ve probably read all about the hugely popular Brazilian Butt Lift and the less common butt implants. So if you’re choosing between the two what should you really be considering?

    For starters, the actual procedures are completely different: a Brazilian Butt Lift involves liposuction of the stomach, thighs and lower back and the transferring the patient’s purified fat to the buttocks through small incisions to completely reshape the lower body. Butt implants simply involve the insertion of a silicone gel implant in to the butt cheek.

    The incisions for the Brazilian Butt Lift are small and hidden in the natural contours for the body, when using a butt implant the scar is longer to allow for the insertion of the gel implant but is normally hidden between the cheeks.

    The risks for each procedure, like any surgery, involve pain, discomfort and infection. Brazilian Butt Lift uses your own fat and is highly successful in creating a bigger buttock. Implants have been known to be more problematic, with implants sitting too high or low (as they can with breast implants), or flipping as you can see below! This occurs when implants are placed above the muscle, instead of below. Each comes with a very specific set of after care instructions that involve a lot of down time and not applying pressure to the buttocks, which Dr McCluskey explains in detail to each patient individually depending on which procedure is right for them.
