    Going through with any cosmetic surgical procedure, whether it’s a simple breast augmentation of a complex tummy tuck, is something that every patient should take seriously. During consultations many patients struggle to remember important questions they might have about the procedure, possible outcomes and aftercare. This list of four questions should help cover most of the vital information needed to feel safe and knowledgable about your surgery.

    Is your surgeon qualified and experienced in your chosen procedure?

    In the same way you wouldn’t expect a certified plastic surgeon to perform neurosurgery, you shouldn’t expect an OBGYN to be able to perform a tummy tuck. Only plastic surgeons are qualified and trained with techniques to give the best results possible in cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, experienced surgeons will have plenty of before and after photos to showcase their hard work and expertise.

    What are common issues patients experience after the procedure?

    There are some common problems that cause patients undue stress following procedures, that would not if www.meaganophotography.comthey were thoroughly explained before undergoing surgery. Ask your doctor what you should expect to see and feel while recovering from surgery and what to look for that could be a more unusual issue.

    What should you expect during recovery?

    Every surgical procedure has a very different recovery process and different things to avoid. How long the recovery period lasts also varies between procedures, breast augmentation patients may begin to feel back to their usual selves in a matter of days while the recovery following a tummy tuck is longer. Following breast augmentation patient avoid carrying heavy objects, arm exercises and reaching for high objects, however after a Brazilian Butt Lift patients must avoid applying and sort of pressure to the buttocks. Some of these directions may seem obvious but it is important to be absolutely clear on any instructions before undergoing surgery.

    What results can you realistically expect from your surgery?

    While any surgeon will do their best to create results that are as close to what the patient desires as possible, there are sometimes physical limitations to how close they can get to achieving this. Either because of the patients safety or simply because there is only so much surgery can achieve. Make sure that before surgery your expectations and desires are in line with your surgeons so that you can have the greatest confidence in the outcome of your procedure.

    It is always important to address any concerns with your doctor, take notes or ask a family member to go with you if you feelthat you may forget key point made during your consultation.

    Mommy Makeover Costs

    Atlanta Mommy Makeover Cost | Liposuction | Breast Reduction | Tummy TuckBecoming a mom is certainly a beautiful experience, but the drastic physical changes that come with it are not that flattering. Be it sagging breasts from breast-feeding or unwanted fat around the tummy, the body undergoes noticeable changes post-pregnancy which take away the youthful demeanor of the body. While women earlier, learned to live with these changes as a natural course that the body takes, the advanced surgical procedures available these days have allowed moms to enjoy the best of both worlds!

    Common mommy makeover procedures

    The range of body contouring surgical procedures offered today can help you bounce back post-pregnancy with as much ease as most celebrities do. Unlike the never-ending grueling weight loss programs, a plastic surgeon can sculpt your body back to its youthful shape real quick. Here are some popular procedures that moms today opt for:

    • Liposuction: In this procedure, tiny incisions are made in the skin so that a surgical tube can be inserted. Various methods are used to break down the fat cells in this region. Few stubborn fat cells present in the area are physically removed through the hollow tube. This helps in sculpting the body to the desired shape. It can be used to tone down the fat in the abdomen, waist, thighs, hips and buttocks.
    • Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck): More commonly referred to as the “tummy tuck”, this procedure involves repairing the muscles that are separated out by stitching them together. It also involves removing excess tissues in the tummy area so as to tighten the skin and give it a smoother and firmer look.
    • Breast lift: Sagging breasts, stretched areolas and disproportionate breasts are a common occurrence post-pregnancy. A breast lift procedure helps in correcting all these changes. It involves removing the excess tissues and tightening the loose skin to give it a fine contour. The position of the breasts and  areolas are lifted during this procedure. Many a times, it is combined with breast implant procedures to add more volume to the breasts.
    • Breast reduction: A woman’s breasts swell up during pregnancy. While they naturally reduce in size over time in most cases, some of them continue to be oversized. This can cause a lot of discomfort. Breast reduction procedures involve removing the excess fat tissues and tightening the skin. This improves the patient’s skeletal stability, lung function, physical functioning and sleep patterns.

    How much does a mommy makeover cost?

    The expenses that come with these procedures vary across different facilities. The nature of surgical procedure, plastic surgeon’s experience, nature of the surgical facility, are few of the factors that affect the overall cost. Geographical location can play a major role in determining the cost of the procedure too. The aspects that are to be considered while narrowing down on procedural expenses are:

    • Cosmetic surgeon fee
    • Anesthesia fee
    • Prescribed medication costs
    • Hospital facility costs
    • Medical tests fee

    Most women feel that the cost of these makeover procedures is a small price to pay to revive their youthful state and happiness.

    Woman BodyThe Plastic Surgery Institute of Atlanta, headed by Dr. Paul McCluskey, provides aesthetic and reconstructive surgeries of the breast, body, face, and nose. Dr. McCluskey is a plastic surgeon who completed his residency in plastic surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. In Dallas he trained alongside several leaders and innovators in cosmetic, plastic, and reconstructive surgery.

    Dr. McCluskey has been a recipient of multiple Resident of the Year awards. He has also authored several peer-reviewed journal articles in the area of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Liposuction is one of the key procedures he performs as a cosmetic surgeon for patients in Atlanta, GA and surrounding communities.

    Understanding Liposuction

    Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure to slim and re-shape targeted areas of the body, which suffer from excess fat deposits. When the fat pockets do not respond to exercise and diet, liposuction may be considered as a procedure to enhance body contours and proportion by removing excess fat tissue.

    Liposuction is commonly used to treat stubborn fat deposits in various body parts such as the abdominal area, hips and buttocks, thighs, neck, arms, back, chest, inner knee, chin, cheeks, ankles, and calves. The procedure may either be performed independently or in combination with other procedures such as a tummy tuck or a facelift.

    Weight Loss and Liposuction

    It is very important to remember that liposuction is not designed as a weight loss procedure. It is, in fact, not very suitable for people who are excessively overweight or obese. Liposuction is meant for people who are bothered by excess localized fat pockets and disproportionate body contours, even if they may have normal body weight, good health and a fair level of fitness. Stubborn fat deposits may occur in such patients more often due to family history rather than a poor level of fitness or lack of weight control.

    It is a mistake to assume that after liposuction a person can afford to ignore a regular fitness regimen and balanced diet. Fat deposits are likely to rebound in cases where the patient does not follow an active lifestyle and healthy eating habits. People who suffer from dimpled skin in hips, buttocks and thighs, which is known as cellulite, should also look for other treatments, and not liposuction.

    Who should opt for Liposuction?

    A person of average weight in proportion to his or her height, who is bothered by stubborn fat deposits in parts of the body may be a genuine candidate for liposuction. Such patients should firstly try to follow a regular exercise and diet regimen, and if the excess fat pockets do not respond well, a liposuction should be considered.

    Adults who are within a range of 30 percent of their ideal body weight, and having good muscle tone and elastic and firm skin may be fine candidates. The individual should not be suffering from a serious medical condition that may impede healing. Smokers who are unable to quit the habit for an adequate period before and after the procedure should avoid liposuction. Patient’s realistic expectations, positive outlook and reasonable goals from liposuction will help achieve a satisfactory outcome.

    Losing Weight for Liposuction

    Liposuction is unsuitable for excessively overweight or obese adults as it is not a body slimming procedure that can be performed extensively. It is a targeted technique performed by a plastic surgeon to remove unwanted fat tissues with an aim to improve body contours, shape, and proportion. Overweight people should ideally follow a program under the supervision of a certified fitness expert to reduce the weight with exercise and a balanced diet.

    When weight reduction is achieved through such a program, and the body weight has stabilized to a more normal level, it may be an intelligent idea to consider liposuction. The procedure can complement a weight loss program by reducing excess fats from targeted areas that have failed to respond to an exercise and diet regimen. Weight control measures and an active lifestyle should be continued after liposuction to extend the benefits of the procedure for as long as possible.
