Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Tahira Prendergast, is proud be a part of the Mia Aesthetics team in Atlanta, GA. With a total of 10 years of surgical training and an additional four years of successful practice, Dr. Prendergast has carved a name for herself as one of the most sought-after breast and body surgeons in the area. Having grown up in a medical family with her father practicing as a prominent surgeon in Jamaica and her mother being a longtime nurse, Dr. Prendergast always had an interest in the medical field. It wasn’t until she was working a medical rotation in the emergency room that she knew for certain plastic surgery was her calling, when a young child was in an unfortunate accident and fell off a truck, needing surgical reconstruction of their face. Dr. Prendergast was tasked with completing this difficult job all by herself, and was able to do so successfully. Once Dr. Prendergast saw how happy, confident and rejuvenated the child was with her work, she knew plastic surgery was her calling.
Dr. Prendergast completed her Bachelor of Medicine-Bachelor of Surgery at the University of the West Indies. Following this, she completed her General Surgery Residency at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C. and then her Plastic Surgery Residency at the Medical University Hospital of South Carolina Charleston, SC. In her four years of practice, Dr. Prendergast has coined a name for her signature style of body contouring called “The Prendy Body,” characterized by full and lifted breasts, a toned tummy and enviable curves. Her most rewarding experience as a plastic surgeon has been helping countless women finally get the body they want through the comprehensive mommy makeover procedure. Seeing her patients’ confidence shoot through the roof after their body has been restored and rejuvenated is a huge part of the reason why Dr. Prendergast loves her job.
Having lived far from her family for quite some time, Dr. Prendergast is excited to be working in the Atlanta, GA area, where she, her husband and her children will be close to other family members. Her philosophy as a plastic surgeon is that every person deserves the opportunity to be happy and confident in their body. This is a huge reason why Dr. Prendergast is thrilled to join the Mia Aesthetics team; the clinics’ affordable prices, and high-quality customized care allow plastic surgery to be an accessible luxury for everyone.
When she is not working, you can find Dr. Prendergast working out, spending time with her family, or binging on medical dramas or addictive reality shows like “Married at First Sight.” Her friendly personality and down-to-earth approach are evident when you first meet her, and she is excited to help give patients the confidence and transformation they deserve.
