Unquestionably, pregnancy is a beautiful thing. It is the cornerstone of life itself and one of the most awe-inspiring miracles of the human body. However, its impact on the body is not always welcome with joy once the little bundle is delivered. While Mom is preoccupied with everything that goes along with raising a newborn, it’s not always so easy to realize her dream of getting back to her pre-baby bod.
Corbett Cosmetic Aesthetic Surgery and MediSpa takes mothers who want to achieve this goal seriously. They specifically offer a “mommy makeover” service that targets problem areas for mothers who do not plan on having any more children and are ready to transform their look to one that can’t be achieved by diet and exercise alone. Dr. Lee Corbett, one of Louisville’s preeminent plastic surgery specialists, has 19 years of experience of making over moms.
“Most clients combine an abdominoplasty [tummy tuck] with a breast lift,” Corbett says. “Often, women tend to add an implant to their lift to gain back the fullness they lost after pregnancy.” These two procedures are the most common for “mommy makeovers” since these two areas are most affected by pregnancy. Though these procedures may seem extreme, Corbett assures that excruciating recoveries from surgeries like these are a thing of the past: “There is no overnight stay, and most of my patients are back to work within 10 days of having surgery. We use a pain pump that helps substantially with the first three days of recovery, which tend to be the worst.”
What sets Corbett Cosmetics apart is the special care given to each client, and it is their staff’s goal to know every client by name. One client commented that, “Coming to your office is like shopping at a boutique versus a department store.” Indeed, the soft lighting, beautiful decorations and calming wall colors create an ambiance one does not think of when imagining a doctor’s office. There is nothing clinical about Corbett and his staff; they strive for an experience nothing short of exceptional.
In fact, their excellent client care stems from the passion Corbett and his staff have for their jobs.
“I have the best job in the world!” Corbett exudes. “I get to help people feel better about themselves. It’s rewarding to see clients gain their confidence back.” Trusting someone with something as intimate as your body can be scary, but having a passionate and professional doctor can certainly put you at ease, especially one who has won a multitude of awards, including Vitals’ Patients’ Choice Award in 2015.
Besides providing excellent service, Corbett also looks to debunk the stereotype that plastic surgery has to look fake. He maintains. “You can have very real, natural looking results.”
He also emphasizes that regaining a naturally beautiful pre-child body is not something that is completely out of reach for normal mothers: “It is not only for the rich and famous. The majority of our clients are just like you and me. It’s affordable and there are payment plan options now for those who need them.”
Of course, the only way to know if you are eligible is to talk to Corbett yourself. Like all surgical procedures, deciding to take the big step can be a hard decision, and it’s important to find a perfect fit for your specific needs. Corbett and his staff help make the decision an easy one. They want you to be the best possible version of yourself: healthy, beautiful and confident. VT
