Like all areas of the body, the vagina loses elasticity and youthful shape with age and following child bearing which can cause issues with sexual intercourse and even vaginal prolapse.

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.

The Mommy Makeover is a popular procedure that helps women return to their ‘pre-baby body’ by combing procedures that address each individuals concerns. Even with a healthy lifestyle including balanced diet and exercise there are some changes that childbearing causes that cannot be reversed without surgery. Pregnancy creates abdominal wall separation, sagging skin and stretch marks that can be reduced with a Tummy Tuck. Fat deposits and problem areas can be remedied using liposuction. Breastfeeding also causes reduced breast volume and sagging that can be addressed using either Breast Augmentation or a Breast Lift.

This patient received a beautiful transformation by combining a Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation and Liposuction with Dr McCluskey. As you can see below there is greater waist definition, fuller breast volume and a flat stomach that would have been impossible through diet and exercise alone.

The Tummy Tuck is one of the most amazing transformations we see at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Atlanta. As part of the famed “Mommy Makeover”  the Tummy Tuck combines liposuction, tightening of the abdominal wall, and removal of extra skin leaving a flatter stomach with a smoother, slimmer waistline.

With aging, and especially following childbirth, the abdominal wall and the skin becomes stretched to a point that exercise and healthy lifestyle can not repair. The Tummy Tuck combined with a healthy lifestyle, is the only way to recreate the youthful look of a pre-pregnancy stomach.

This Week’s Move: The Tricep Dip

A common complaint that many patients have is that they are unhappy with the size or appearance of their upper arms. The tricep dip, and other moves that exercise the tricep muscle (as seen in the picture) will specifically tone the backs of the arms increasing strength and creating slimmer, leaner looking upper arms.

This move is incredibly simple and is open to many variations to further test yourself and increase endurance. For example the legs can be bent with feet plants on the ground, straight with heels digging in to the ground, or crossed with one heel digging in to the ground. The key thing to remember with the tricep dip is that it’s just that- a work out for the upper arm, so moving the hips up and down to touch the floor will not exercise the arm. The key is to bend the elbow and then snap back in to a straight arm position, even if this means a small bend in the elbow at first as you improve you will be able to achieve a lower ‘dip’.

To perform a tricep dip follow the steps below and use Dr McCluskey’s pictures as a reference! This move can be performed using a step or low bench or simply on the floor:

1. Lean back and place hands directly under shoulders with fingers facing forward.

2.  With legs either straight out to the front, bent, or crossed, lift your butt off the floor and shift your weight back so that more pressure is on your arms than legs.

3. Simply bend the elbows lowering your upper body slowly without letting your bum touch the floor.

4. Then push back to a straight arm position to complete the dip!

Perform this action twenty times for three sets each day for the next week and see if you can notice an improvement. Changing leg position or using a step to allow a bigger dip will increase the challenge! Controlled and stable movements will help to produce the best results, and don’t forget to check in with us and let us know what you think of this exercise!

These two very popular procedures have earned themselves fans all over the world and for a good reason! A Tummy Tuck gives a slim, youthful waist that can be so hard to achieve for many especially following pregnancy. A Brazilian Butt Lift adds curves in all the right places while taking away fat from trouble areas. It’s understandable then, that many patients come in wanting to combine the two procedures and achieve hour glass curves in one day ofsurgery, but is it a good idea?

Liposuction Surgery Atlanta | Lipo Plastic Surgery | Cosmetic Surgeon

The short answer is: No. While these two procedures together can help to completely transform a woman’s body the recovery for one would inhibit the recovery of the other. Following a Brazilian Butt Lift patients are warned not to sit or lay on their rear for a period of time, which would mean laying on the stomach or standing for long periods of time – two things that would be extremely uncomfortable following a Tummy Tuck.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   tummytuckbrowning

Not only this but the results will be significantly better if a recovery time is left between them. Dr McCluskey recommends first undergoing the Brazilian Butt Lift and then, after a 6-8 week period, the Tummy Tuck. For two very simple reasons. The first being that it would make no sense to undergo a tummy tuck, then follow with liposuction shortly after, this would mean the best result would not be achieved. Secondly, following the liposuction involved in a Brazilian Butt Lift and the recovery/reduction in swelling in the weeks following, more loose skin will be available to create the most flat, tapered and natural result possible.

We all know that there are many, many reasons to stop smoking: the health complications are extensive and the effect on you appearance alone are hugely significant. Smoking also adds a significantly higher risk of complications when it comes to surgery. As a rule I don’t operate on smokers. I try to work with patients that do smoke to set parameters for their safety or to help them to stop smoking completely (if they are interested). If you are a chronic smoker then during your consultation I will explain the risks of smoking with regard to plastic surgery and I’ll ask you to stop smoking one month prior to surgery and one month afterward.  It might sound like a big challenge, but I’m asking you to cease smoking for a period of one month.

Unknown-3

Even if you follow these instructions to the letter and quit smoking one month before and one month after surgery you are still at risk for many of the complications typical for smokers, naturally it’s always preferable that patients stop smoking completely. One of the many reasons smoking is problematic in regards to surgery is that chemicals found in cigarettes cause blood to clot less easily which can be extremely problematic, . If you are a smoker any issues or questions you may have will be discussed in detail at your consultation so that you can be fully educated and prepared before scheduling surgery.

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!

A tummy tuck procedure is the perfect procedure to remove excess skin from the stomach area that can be due to child-bearing or a dramatic weight loss. The overall procedure includes removal of the excess skin, tightening of the abdominal muscles which are so often stretched beyond the help of exercise during pregnancy, and if needed liposuction to help define the new slimmed waistline. As you can see this patients abdominal area is almost unrecognizable following the tummy tuck procedure!
