Getting Your Body Beach Ready – Suffolk Mommy Makeover

March 2016 – By Dr. Tad Grenga, Chesapeake Center for Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery  |

Winter’s chill is slowly backing off and the heat of summer seems so far off  ……. yet this is THE IDEAL time for getting your body beach-ready and, of course for all of the other warm-weather pursuits that you enjoy in Suffolk and throughout Hampton Roads. When winter finally ends and spring finds us thinking about the outdoors; when slacks and jeans give way to shorts; and when turtleneck sweaters are put away in place of tees and polos, then it’s time to get serious about your beach-ready body.


Among the most popular plastic surgery procedures for sculpting tummies, love handles and thighs is liposuction, which is still the “gold standard” by which all minimally invasive body sculpting techniques are compared.  However, you should not expect liposuction to tighten slack skin or firm up lax tummy muscles. That is accomplished with a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty. Many women find that after child bearing, the tummy will show the effects more so than other parts of her body. That’s why Suffolk plastic surgeon Dr. Grenga provides Mommy Makeover plastic surgery for restoring a trimmer, more youthful figure. Many Suffolk patients of Dr. Grenga have commented after surgery that they achieved a figure which is trimmer than even before they became pregnant with the first child.

For reshaping the breasts, droop is corrected with a breast lift or mastopexy. If one’s breast volume has decreased after delivery, for example, addition of volume with breast implants can be combined with a lift for a fuller, perkier breast shape.
