Hello realself friends,
I have been combing thru this website and contemplating what I should do for the last few months. I wasn't planning on posting here but then I realized that I could not find too many women who shared my story and physique-so here we go!
1st let me give you some back story. For the last 9 months I have been very ill suffering from sharp stomach pains, bloated beyond... more
My second time around w/Dr.Hughes and wouldn't come back if he wasn't the best at what he does! I really hated my stomach more than ANYTHING! Now I can't wait to heal to fluant the 100% full effect! I am very excited 13 days in. Can't wait until I am able to showcase my final results! Very worth it! 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
I really enjoy seeing everyone's experiences and results and posts of the before surgery, the recovery process, and the end results. It is an eye opener and has helped me have realistic expectations of my own journey. I've been planning this surgery for the past two years now. I'm hopeful that the end result will be great. more
I had on baby and several miscarriages. My tummy was all jacked up and I was tired of people asking me if I was still pregnant. So I asked Dr. Svehlak for a tummy tuck and liposuction. He had to sew all my abdominal muscles back together too. The recovery for me was about 10 days. I had very little bruising and I am excited to wear a bikini again. more
Great Doctor! Answered all my question's , staff is very friendly . I went to see him for a consultation and was able to make up my mind and scheduled my surgery 3 weeks after. I am really happy with my results . I highly recommend Dr. K you will not be disappointed . Dr. K is the doctor you need if your thinking of having plastic surgery . more
39 year old mom of two and grandma! I let myself go for so many years. Mostly depression, boredom I think. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 18 and my life just spiraled out of control. I let myself go. But most importantly put my health at risk. When the doctors wanted to put me on additional medication I decided to stop right then and there. I went through my journey and even though... more
I had three procedures done all at once to get rid of the bags under my eyes, refine my nose, and a tummy tuck. I was really terrified. I cried on the operating table. I got horrifically sick with vomiting and headaches after the other surgeries I've had. And they weren't necessarily as big as this. I couldn't believe that though I was a bit uncomfortable, I didn't feel much pain at all and... more
Lost 125 lbs, current weight is 115-120, I had hanging skin on my breasts and stomach. I am fit, athletic, lost weight with diet and exercise, i exercise 5x a week and work an active job. I chose Dr. Andres Taleisnik after talking with only a few different surgeons mainly because he seemed happy to answer all my questions, didn't make me feel rushed and was honest with what kind of results I... more
