Hi All! I've been lurking on this site for many many years. I finally made the decision to get a TT and had it done today! I also replaced my saline implants with silicon and a little outer thigh lipo. I wanted to share my experiences since I appreciate all yours! I had a horrible recovery with my first BA but this one was a piece of cake. I actually keep forgetting that they are new. I am... more
I am a 58 year young woman, active, fit and stylish. For years I would grab the fat and excess skin on my abdomen and say 'if this were gone, I'd be happy with my body'! All the exercise, running, yoga, boot camp, spinning - you name it I did it - did not address this extra chub and it drove me crazy. My beautiful wardrobe had to include ways in which I could hide my stomach (and I gave up... more
WLS/RNY -6/17/15. Significant weight loss. Currently about 120 lbs lost. Went from a size 22-24 to a 10, 8 in dresses. Lol. I exercise regularly but I can't seem to get the belly results I so desperately desire. I had hammer toe surgery on both feet so I am currently off work 7/9/15 - 9/8/15. WISH ME LUCK more
I feel guilty having surgery since my kids are so small and I feel bad that I will not be able to properly care for them for a few weeks. I had my twins at 37 weeks and they weighed 7lb 15ounces and 7lb 5ounces. I was huge and the weight and size of my babies gave me an umbilical hernia and significant abdominal wall separation. 15 months later I had another big baby weighing 8lb 15ounces. My... more

I flew in from Fort McMurray Alberta to get a Tummy tuck and Lipo from Dr. Chivers. I was going to have only the tummy-tuck and liposuction of my love handles, but he was so honest and said he actually included that liposuction of the love handles as part of the procedure for free with a tummy tuck so I was also able to get some lipo of my legs done for no extra cost! Dr. Quinton is such a... more

Afer having my last child, 12 years ago, I had been jogging and working out. I forgot how or when I had my pouch. It always seemed to get in the way when I wore my clothes. So I made a decision instantly and just called my friend's doctor up asking for a quote. I didn't do any research at all. I had no clue how to take care of myself after the surgery. My doctor made it so easy that I didn't... more
The experience was excellent Dr. answer all my questions and was very patient with me. Doctor was very pleasing with my results and was willing to adjust any thing I would not like . The staff were very helpful and sweet, I was able to communicate with them with no problem. Doctor and staff were very happy and charismatic. I would recommend this doctor for anyone. He is great doctor more
I hated to see my profile in any reflection; be it a mirror or just in a glass window walking in the mall. I had to always consider this flab around my waist whenever shopping or dressing for work, play or anything! I passed on many cute tops or pants because they wouldn't hide my shame. Never-mind I had lost almost 100 pounds and otherwise looked great. I was haunted by this flab of skin... more
After having 2 kids via c-section, and losing weight over the years, decided to finally get a tummy tuck and lipo for the back and flanks.
I'm 5 weeks post op, and I'm healing great!
The first 2 weeks were horrible! But if you have ice packs, meds and pillows ready for recovery it will make life easier!
I do regret not having a recliner to sleep in for recovery time. Getting in and out of... more
Let me start by saying that I am a physician myself and I have been thinking about plastic surgery for couple years until I met Dr.Agha , as a matter of fact I saw a book with the pictures of his before and after surgeries first and I was convinced that I want to meet him , as soon as I met him and his staff , I knew right away he is my surgeon , I made a decision and scheduled my surgery on... more
Me time. I spent all of my 40's dealing with illness and death. First I had a rare form of leukemia and 1 year after treatment my mother found out she had two years to live and my father's Alzheimer's worsened. Then one of my beautiful sons at 16 started hearing voices and left the planet mentally for 3 years. All of this at the same time! But that was then and this is now! My parents have... more
I had my first child when I was 14 and continued to have kids.. Not having any knowledge of my fate ahead of me. So now I spend my entire life stuck in the house because of my poor choices.. So I would at least like to have something for myself to smile at.. I love my kids totally.. But sometimes I don't feel happy when I look in the mirror at my stomach. I smile but deep down inside I feel... more
