My son is 16 years old & for the last 16 years I've wanted to get a mommy makeover! I worked out religiously over the years but the stretch marks & saggy breasts weren't going anywhere.
I interviewed approximately 7 plastic surgeons over the years before I decided to go w/ Dr. Esmailian. One of my close friends husband is a VERY well known plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, however I am all... more
Genetics aside, my lower tummy area has always been a problem for me. I have no kids, but had a double hernia repair as an infant, leaving me with a pelvic bone scar, and slight dog ear on the "pouch" of stomach fat in my lower tummy. I'm active, play sports, make 70% good food decisions, and still, a large stomach pouch continues to haunt me. I've thought about fixing this for probably 10... more
Choices were dr Kenneth hughes or Dr tom pousti, going with hughes. Lipo of inner thigh. Back. Hips. Tummy. Waist. Chin. Tummy tuck and implants with possible benelli lift. Currently 125kg.

Has anyone ever flown 2 weeks after surgery like... more
After having three large babies and gaining 80 lbs with each pregnancy, I wanted to finally get rid of the saggy skin with a ton of stretch marks (price is just for tummy tuck, I was quoted $27,000 for all three). I also had lost a lot of breast volume from breastfeeding for over 3 years all together and they lost their youthful perkiness. Dr. Rahban made me feel sexy again and I am thankful... more
After carefully combing this site for months, going back an forth with 2 facilities in Miami(Spectrum Aesthetics -Dr. Ortega & Vanity Cosmetic-Dr. Fisher) I have decided to go with Dr. Kenneth Hughes-Culver City.
I was torn between Vanity Cosmetic & Spectrum Aesthetics 1. Price 2. Dr. Ortega works looks awesome and so does Dr. Fishers. I emailed my photos expecting to hear from both doctors... more
My case was a challenging one seeing how I had an emergency c section that left me with a thick vertical scar starting from my belly button and going all the way down to my first horizontal c section scar. The way this last c section left my stomach was unsightly. My belly was simply stapled together leaving it to heal very uneven and the scar was thick.
I was told by other surgeons like Dr.... more

My decision to have surgery was a little sporadic so being scared may have been an understatement it was my first surgery ever and I was pretty afraid of the whole idea of going to sleep and everything that came after but had I not found dr.j I don't know that I would've gone through with it..He is an amazing surgeon a true artist and has an incredible bedside manner he was so patient with me... more
About 18 years ago I was approved for a breast reduction, then I met my husband and decided to wait. After 4 kids and losing 72 lbs I am a bit loose in the skin, to say the least. Now I am really deflated and need a lift. Doctor and office staff feel I won't be happy without implants but I don't want anything foreign in my body. I posted a question with pictures and drs felt I should do the... more
I have my pre-op apt next week so I am ready to start really getting ready for this surgery. I have decided to go with Dr. Bruno. I consulted with other surgeons but I knew he was "the one" right away. I am super excited and ready to get my body somewhat back to what it was before I had my babies. I know I will still have stretch marks left over. I have them above my belly button right now.... more
I did my research for a year, and found Dr. David E. Kim to be one of the best. I made an apt with him and a couple other Dr's, but honestly Dr. Kim was it for me, I admired his honesty and he respected what I wanted. Not what he thought I needed. Let's just say; He made me feel safe ;) his staff was the bomb
I left out some pictures. Figured I'd put them up. I'm a week post op now! Yay!... more
I had gastric bypass in 2005 and lost 130 pounds. It's almost been ten years, and even though I'm in the best shape of my life (run 4-8 miles a day), I couldn't get rid of my sad belly button (it looks like it's frowning) and my saggy boobs. I looked like I'd had children, but I'm 30 years old and never married/no kids. I was holding off on surgery so that I could have kids first, but... more
I went to see 3 doctors so far. I choose one of those 3 the office quoted me for 16,000 for breast augmentation with silicone, full tummy tuck and Brazilian butt lift. They said if I would go on tv and on the radio to talk about my experience pre-op and post-op they will leave everything for 9,000. I agreed because it was a deal for me. We signed a contract did all the test. I went on tv and... more
Hello everyone! I have 4 kids that are 6, 3, 2, and 9 months. As you can tell they were back to back pregnancies and it has reeked havoc on my body. I would like to have a ba/bl, bbl, and a full tt.

I have my consultation scheduled for this Saturday at 11:30. I'll be seeing Dr. Hughes. He... more
Working out, significantly improving my diet, I could not lose the abdominal fat & "love handles". In addition, my belly button would always be protruding due to an abdominal hernia from pregnancy. I finally decided to get the mommy makeover. My husband gave this gift to me for Mother's Day. I am beyond happy and grateful for the amazing surgery Dr. J did! Words cannot express how happy I... more

I am pleased to say that only after 2 weeks of recovery I was back to work feeling normal with no pain or discomfort. It has now been 6 mos and I love love my results I a have been fully active with my children in just 4 weeks after my surgery. I wish... more
