I hope to lose another 5-10lbs., but after several visits to my family doctor and two PS', I knew the only way to get my stomach where I wanted it to be was through a... more
I am a 35 year old mother of 2 beautiful little girls. After my first pregnancy, my skin never went back to the way it was before kids. It took me about five years to finally convince my husband to let me get a TT. It is not that he didn't want me to have one, he is worried I am going to die during surgery and leave him and our sweet girls behind. After years of talking about it and... more
Well where should one start when they talk about an artist. To me Dr.Agha is an
artist in the plastic surgery world. He truly is one of a kind. His results
speak for themselves.
Dr.Agha made me feel so comfortable with him on our Skype session. We also
talked many times on the phone leading up to my surgery date. You can tell that
he knows what he is doing; plus his bed side manners are... more

I turn 28 three days after I get my tummy tuck done. I couldn't have asked for a better birthday gift (though I may not feel that way then). A little back history : I am 27 5'4 and 140lbs. I used to weigh 212lbs so a good amount of weigh loss! I did it the natural way..eat right and exercise. I also have no kids.
I found Dr. Chung on Google and when I called I was transferred to Kimberly. She... more
Hi Ladies! I have been on this site for about a month now learning about what to expect. Surgery is one week from today. I am excited and nervous and have a couple questions about CG's. My doctor said that he will give me a binder and i dont need a CG. I have noticed that alot of you are getting them and im trying to figure out why. Is it a comfort/swelling thing or do you get better... more
I am 61 yrs. young; I've been reading TT reviews on this website for the last 2 yrs., trying to get my courage up to do this, even though I've wanted it for a decade. I kept hearing/reading about how horribly painful it is, all the things that can go wrong and all the hard times in recovery. I finally decided, the time is now, I'm not getting any younger!! So...I did my research, typed out... more
I keep debating in between just getting lipo due to the scar of the tummy tuck but then everyone tells me I will be mad if going through all this I don't get the outcome I want. After looking at a ton of pictures on this site I've paid and have my tummy tuck/lipo on 4/4/14 after having my 4 children, youngest is 7, oldest is 23. Less than 48 hours! I'm doing tummy tuck with NO DRAINS, new... more
Performed abdominoplasty, breast implants, arm lift at in San Dimas. The implants were placed unevenly, the tummy tuck tore and required draining of blood, scar on tummy tuck not even and it didn't extend as far as he should have so it created muffin tops. Created breast double bubble since he failed to do a lift when placing implants. So heartbroken. more
I used to drive the 91 a lot for work the past few years. I would always see Dr Chungs billboard. I would always tell myself " I need to add him to the list of surgeons to review once I'm ready to start planning. After researching a lot of surgeons in the area I finally decided to go with them. When I first called I spoke with Kimberly the patient coordinator. In the first phone call alone... more
I had a face lift and tummy tuck. I had lost 50 pounds and wanted my flat tummy back and my face looked old and sagging and I wanted it pulled up and tight along with my upper and lower eyes. I felt as if I look closer to 63 than 53 and simply wanted to look closer to my age. Now my husband says I look 20 years younger. I agree, I think Dr. Smaili took at least 10 years off my face. more
