A mommy makeover allows women to achieve an enhanced level of aesthetic rejuvenation by combining popular body
The size and volume of the breasts can be a source of constant frustration and dissatisfaction for some women.
Knowing that our patients are happy and satisfied is the most important thing to us here at Atlanta Plastic Surgery. And not just with their plastic surgery results, but with the entire plastic surgery process. From the initial consultation appointment to follow-up appointments after the procedure, to years down the line, it means so much to us to know that we are helping our patients achieve and maintain the new appearance and increased self-esteem that they deserve. That’s why we wanted to present some recent firsthand Atlanta Plastic Surgery testimonials from our patients to help illustrate how we ensure the best possible experience for all of our patients.
Dr. L. Franklyn Elliott
I was referred to Dr. Elliott following a diagnosis of breast cancer. He calmed my fears, explained my options and answered many, many questions. He gave me a wonderful new breast after my mastectomy, and every doctor and nurse I now see comments on how good of a job that he did.
Dr. James Namnoum
I have been to Dr. Namnoum for a few procedures. I highly recommend his staff and the doctor himself. They have always made me feel in more than competent hands and I always knew with that Dr. Namnoum in charge, everything would come out perfectly and it did! He has done two breast reductions and a tummy tuck, and I am very satisfied with his work. Wouldn’t go anywhere else!
Dr. Joseph Williams
Dr. Williams is a gem! My daughter was treated by him for 2 years for her facial port wine birthmark on her left cheek, in Atlanta. She still loves him, and still talks about Dr. Williams to her new doctor in Manhattan. We love Dr. Williams!
Dr. Allyson Maske
I love Dr. Maske and her professional, yet personal staff! I am loving my results! It’s been 4 weeks post-op. She is very detailed to ensure you clearly understand your options. Her staff is always eager and willing to answer all questions. Tresa, the administrative assistant, is great! Strong sense of urgency and very polite. It was a pleasure doing business with you all!
Dr. Michael Mirzabeigi
Dr. Mirzabeigi performed my breast reconstruction surgery following a mastectomy. He is a kind, caring surgeon who explained my reconstruction options so I could easily understand my choices. He was patient with my questions and took time during my appointments so that I didn’t feel rushed. He is detail-oriented and seeks perfection! I am happy with the results of my surgery. The staff at Atlanta Plastic Surgery are top notch and terrific to work with. I have also reached out to the staff nurses for general questions and they have been very informative.

As plastic surgery becomes more and more popular for men, there is a notion among some patients that certain cosmetic procedures are for men and others are for women. While this is true in some instances, the truth is that the majority of cosmetic surgery procedures that we perform can help both male and female patients. Take breast reduction surgery for example. According to the most recent statistics collected by the Aesthetic Society, women underwent over 82,000 breast reduction procedures in the US last year, while men underwent an additional nearly 29,000 male breast reduction procedures. Today our plastic surgeons wanted to discuss the benefits of breast reduction surgery can provide for both men and women.
Breast reduction can offer a variety of outstanding benefits for women. In some cases, overly large breasts can make a woman’s figure seem disproportionate or out of balance. Additionally, larger breasts can also be very heavy, leading to posture issues, as well as serious back and neck pain, over time. Undergoing breast reduction can help relieve these issues, while providing a more proportional silhouette that can make wearing certain clothing and performing physical activities like exercise more comfortable.
The benefits of male breast reduction are purely cosmetic, but that doesn’t mean that they cannot be incredibly profound. During the procedure, our surgeons are able to surgically remove the excess glandular breast tissue caused by gynecomastia (as well as excess skin and fat from the area as needed). In doing so, we are able to address unwanted “man boobs” and provide a more masculine chest contour for patients. The increased self-confidence and satisfaction that comes from men being able to feel more comfortable in their clothing and with their shirts off can be truly incredible to witness.
Our experienced plastic surgeons have been performing breast reduction surgery for many years. Each surgery is specifically tailored to the unique aesthetic needs of each patient, man or woman, in order to provide the best and longest-lasting breast reduction results.

You may be considering breast reconstruction surgery following a lumpectomy, mastectomy or a double mastectomy. Breast reconstruction can help restore feelings of femininity, and body confidence and help improve the balance between the breasts if only one breast is affected. If you decide to do breast reconstruction surgery, it’s important to know what to expect during your initial consultation with your surgeon at Atlanta Plastic Surgery.
What should I expect during my initial consultation?
You should be prepared to candidly discuss your goals, your current state of health, any medications you are currently taking, any smoking or drug use and previous surgeries. Due to its in-depth nature, there may be a cost for this initial consultation.
What are the important questions to ask?
Here are some of the important questions to ask your surgeon.
- What are your specific credentials?
- Are you specifically trained in plastic surgery?
- Am I a good candidate for this surgery?
- How long is the recovery time?
