Researched for over 2 years for the PS to trust to do my surgery. After 2 botched breast Augmentations 2009/2010 with over 800cc implants and Crescent nipple lift done which left me with terrible scaring around areoles. I was ready to fix it all with a Mommy Makeover. After following Dr. Shahriar Mabourakh here on Real Self for over a year and after great reviews and before and after photos I... more
Hi Realself friends. This site has been a wonderful. My stats are, I am 39, 139lbs and 5' 3". In March 2016 I went to see Dr. Scott Green for a full mommy makeover. He was 45 - 1 hour late to meet with me and he stated that he could not do a full tummy tuck that I am a candidate for a "mini tummy tuck" with lift, implants and lipo. He was highly recommended but I must have got him on a... more
Can't wait to get rid of this apron of skin and hopefully feel confident about my body. I have been losing weight for almost two years now and have lost 100 pounds. I have only consulted with one doctor but I knew right away he was the one. Need to start getting supplies but I feel lost. Excited and nervous all at the same time!

I have never really complained about my ass growing up. It was never flat but its not big at all! I was teased more on about my breasts.. It was flatter than any teenagers my age so I stuffed my bra with toilet paper, socks and also my mothers silicone breasts..I found it in her closet when she abandoned us.. Obviously it runs in the family! I became pregnant with my first child my boobs were... more
Decided to go with Dr. Green in Sacramento after 6 months of researching and consultation after consultation after consultation... So excited I am compelled to share my consultation experience. So if you are considering a Tummy Tuck, Or Body Lift, you must see Dr. Green.
My consultation with Dr. Green was amazing. From the beginning, Dr. Green was confident and recommended a less... more
I am a 35 year old, mother of an 8, 3, and 1 year old, SAHM. I am 5’7, 140 pounds. I have always had nonexistent breasts. I remember in High school when the boys would put their hand on my chest and tell me it felt like touching a wall. I also have freakishly large and prominent nipples. I started to develop some breast during pregnancy but my already HUGE nipples got bigger wtf! My once... more
I am on the medical field, so it is easy for me to understand the explanation. I had been searching for a Plastic surgeon for few months from bay area to Sacramento and Roseville area. I was amazed how Friendly and Approachable Jasmine, Christine, Jo (CRNA) and the Nurses ( Sorry Ladies I was under the influence of meds, I forgot your names) . All of them will make you feel comfortable, and... more
I'm pretty nervous right now. I've done some research on youtube, the internet, and this site, talked to friends and decided to go for it. But why am I so nervous? I think at 1st it was because I wasn't sure I should-the cost, the time off, the selfishness, etc. Hubby helped me make it past that part and actually booked my 1st consult for today. YES, TODAY! Everyone at the Lee Institute of... more
I had been seeking ps since I had my last child in 2007. I had the typical loose tummy skin and small deflated breasts from breast feeding all four of my kids. I am a very active person and have worked out hard core for years but could not lose the loose tummy skin. The opportunity arose and I sought opinions from a couple of Dr.s about having surgery. I asked each dr. what procedures they'd ... more
I can't say enough about how happy I am with dr. Greens work. My body looks better now, at the age of 31 and as a mom of 2, then it has ever looked. EVER! My tummy is flat and my boobs are perky and completely natural looking. The scars are very flat and thin too. He is a true artist. The one and only thing I'm disappointed with is that while he did a good amount of lipo, he seemed to neglect... more
I am a petite little lady at 5'1 and a pre op weight 102 pounds. In 2011 I gave birth to my son who was 11 pounds 14.9 ounces.. and lets be real, you can't come back from that. While I was able to get my weight down rather quickly I was left with a body that was very different. I had the sad mom boobs and of course a lot of saggy skin in my belly. I thought about it every day for two years... more
Hello all you wonderful Real Self folks (and lurkers)!
I am a 52 year old mother of 2 great kids (son, now 22, dtr, now 18). I'm 5'2" and recently lost 40lbs (on a Ketogenic diet, like the first part of Atkins...). I tried for years to lose "the pooch" after the birth of my dtr and was miserable because of my failure at diet and exercise.
Within the last year I somehow stumbled across... more
Dr.Hause and staff are amazing. His technical skills are beautiful as my tuck incision is extremely low and straight! His recommendation on my augmentation size complimentary to my size was perfect! I'm not going to sugar coat post-op, it was tough. Luckily I had supportive family by my side the whole time. I have no regrets and hoping my recovery goes bye fast. I am eager and excited to see... more
I am 58 years old and have lost a 115 pounds and kept it off for one year. I had a breast lift with implants and a tummy tuck to remove loose skin and fat that I couldn't exercise away. Dr. Mabourakh has given me a body I can be proud of. No more apron or love handles to try and hide. My breasts are full and up where they should be. I can walk around naked in my house without feeling totally... more
Hello all! I'm so excited to be here and read all of your reviews. I had my oldest son at the young age of 17, and my body has never been the same. Now that my husband and I have decided that we definitely don't want any more children, I've decided it's time to get my body back! I have my first consultation today and a 2nd one on Wednesday. I am going to have a mommy makeover (tummy tuck,... more
My first post with 20 days to go until surgery. My pre-op is next week, I feel oddly ready and not nervous; not even just a little. I know 100% this is the right thing for me! I labeled this a "Mommy Makeover" only because this site doesn't offer both a Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift/Augment procedure type and I didn't want to make two posts every time. I am full aware that I am not getting... more

For of all, thanks for all the great reviews and progress you guys post on this page. I find them so informative and helpful.
I'm 36, have 3 kids, 11, 2 and 1. I'm going to get the MM in 5 days. My main concern is my recovery. It looks like I need to drive after 10 days post surgery because my oldest take dance lessons. I'm seeing my doctor again in two days but I forgot what he'd told me the... more
