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.

If you have followed us for a while you will know all about the amazing results our patients receive after a Tummy Tuck procedure with Dr McCluskey! While a tummy tuck is the best procedure for removing excess skin from the stomach, and tightening the abdominal wall, sometimes excess skin extends beyond the abdominal wall and around to the sides of the body. In this case an extended Tummy Tuck can be used to provide the attention needed in these areas and achieve a slim, smooth waistline from all angles.

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!

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.

At the Plastic Surgery Institute of Atlanta we are lucky to have amazing patients! Here are some kind words from one of them:
“I had two Rhinoplasty’s done in the past by two different doctors In Florida. Both of which were incorrectly done and the results affected me monetarily and emotionally. After 5 years of being miserable and still unhappy, I heard of Paul by one of his previous patients that I met in a local Atlanta bar. I was amazed at the before and after results on my friend. I then decided to take another chance at it, so in May of 2013 I put my trust in this Doctor and had my 3rd Rhinoplasty. Today I am happy with my results. Finally, I am smiling and feel happier than I have been in a very long time. So that’s my story. I wish he would have been my first Doctor that did my procedure. I would have saved so much money. Regardless, When hiring a Plastic Surgeon, Beware.. In my book, Paul Mccluskey and his staff are the BEST!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!! :)”

Exercise Of The Week
Here at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Atlanta the health and wellbeing of our patients is a priority in everything we do! Besides eating well, exercise and having an active lifestyle is vital to support good health. Each week Dr McCluskey demonstrates a different exercise for everyone to try as well as setting a challenge for the week. This week it’s all about the abdominals-a problem area for many! It is important to remember that abdominal exercises alone will not give any one a flat stomach, eating healthy food and appropriate portions is also vital!
The Full Extension
This move can take a little while to conquer as it requires stability as well as abdominal strength, but stick with it! Full extensions utilize the entire core giving the upper and lower ab muscles work as well as using the entire core to stabilize. Try performing thirty of these each day for the next week and tell us if you see any improvement! Here’s how to perform one full extension:
1. Extend both legs and arms long
2. Reach up and over your head with your arms while simultaneously tucking the knees towards the chest.
3. Extend both arms out in front of you with knees tucked in to your chest
4. In a controlled motion extend both the arms and legs and return to your original position.
Watch as Dr McCluskey and our lovely Dani demonstrate this move!

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?
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.
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.
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!
