Mused after reading an article that referenced Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s which starred Audrey Hepburn. Her character, Holly Golightly, feels Tiffany’s is where “nothing very bad could happen to you.” What place makes you feel safe and happy?
A “Mommy Makeover” is an improvement of the appearance of breasts and abdomen at the same time. It can be done shortly after a last child is born or years later depending on circumstances. The important thing is to feel better about yourself and the way you look in and out of clothes.
The breast improvements may involve implants, a breast lift, both implants and lift or occasionally a reduction. The abdomen can be improved through tummy tucks or liposuction. Often times we do liposuction in addition to the tummy tuck. There is also a variety of tummy tucks depending on what needs improved.
(Did You Know? To see the services we offer, pictures of various surgeries and get to know us better go to our new web site www.mckennamd.com. It is easy especially from your phone.)
The advantages of doing surgeries together are less recuperation, downtime and money (we discount the surgeon fee on multiple surgeries by 10%). Of course there is a limit to the amount of surgery or liposuction we will perform since safety is our most important concern.
Here’s a recent patient:

CoolSculpting is a technique to freeze unwanted fat from a variety of areas. With our “Dual Sculpting” (two machines) the time is halved and flanks or abdomen can often be done in under an hour. The most common areas are abdomen, flank/side, thighs, hips, arms, back, under buttock, bra line and under the chin. The fat cells are permanently removed. Best of all is that there is almost no downtime so you can resume your activities the same day! Call Joni who has 5 years’ experience to discuss your situation 513-793-5772.
