I have visited many surgeons and I finally chose Dr.Christopher Chung in Corona,CA. I am really nervous and I have been reading and researching non-stop! I have talked to friends that have had similar procedures and they are all totally happy and would do it again. I have always been over weight and had been in the 240's for 10+ years. I finally decided to change my life and eat right and... more

So, I had my son at 19 and from that point on, bikinis were out of the question. Even after I lost ALL the baby weight, my stomach looked like a deflated balloon and stuck out like I was still pregnant. The hubby and I had saved up the money before to get it done by Dr. Aiello but then the housing market crashed again and we used the money towards a down payment on a house. So, a few years... more

I just booked my surgery for what I call a "mommy makeover".

2. Tummy tuck
3. Lipo of the flank (aka back fat. This seems to be standard procedure, to help really create the hourglass shape).
4. Lipo of the outer thighs. Wasn't originally part of... more
Hey everyone. Well ever since I could remember I always wanted bigger breast. I'm a 32-34 A/B. I personally wanted to wait till I knew I was not having any more kids. Last year I started going to consultations for breast augmentation and tummy tuck. One Dr without measuring me said 680 cc ??!!. Another said strictly saline. I made sure I got all my questions answered. I guess it depends on the... more
After my 2nd child my tommy was never the same. No matter how many sit ups and exercise, the extra skin was still there. So, when my late husband asked me what I wanted for my 40th birthday, I knew exactly what I wanted, a Mommy Makeover. I started researching for the best surgeon in OC. My oral surgeon also recommended Dr. Horowitz and after doing some researched on my own I confirmed he... more

I lost 100 pounds around eight or nine years ago and I've tried to lose the extra inches of skin since then, but it never really went away. Finally, this last September I felt ready to get a breast augmentation and abdominoplasty. It looks amazing. My 17 year old daughter who doesn't usually give me compliments was amazed at the results. After about two or three weeks when the bandages and... more

Today is one week before surgery. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I plan to spend with family. The only one I have... more
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.

Have been taking Blood Builder iron supplements religiously (the best, btw!), and have finally been cleared. Am scheduled for Oct. 30th. Imagine how much I can scare the kids when they come trick o' treating on Halloween!!
Anyway - filled with so much anxiety that I literally get sick... more
I finally got this done. I have been dreaming about this for years, I have not been happy with my body since giving birth to my children. I had a lot of skin that made me really self-conscious although it never seemed like the right time. Leading up to the procedure I was very nervous, feeling selfish and feeling vain-very emotional. I was constantly on this website(obsessing over the surgery)... more
