Hello Everyone, I have been thinking about having a tummy tuck since I was about 30 yrs. old. Finally about 2 yrs. ago I noticed I was getting some fat in my upper abdomen that I could not get rid of.....
My BFF had one done about 6 years ago by Dr. Green also and she was my motivation! She said it was the best thing she ever did for herself!!!!!!!! Her stomach still looks so flat and... more
Was recommended to Dr. Clark from a good friend. I paid for a tummy tuck, thigh lipo and back fat removal and buttock sculpture. Well, it's been six months and my thighs look the same as they did before the surgery. My bottom is too big and my TT scar is still swollen. The doggy ears are still painful. When I returned to the office for the incision pain, I received less than decent customer... more

I had my consultation with my Dr. He said I only needed a mini tuck with Lipo. I was thrilled but I'm still nervous. I have over the years gone up and down in weight, 20lbs Max over 12 years ago. Maintained weight by about 10 lbs over last 10 years. Always had a lower tummy. I am 5'4 and 124lbs now.
First I would like to say staff has been good. Anesthesiologist called night before... more
Dr Kaufman and his staff are simply the best. I'm in love with my New Tummy. He pays attention to detail and he gave me an amazing result. He is also amazing at making recovery a breeze. I had no pain thanks to his techniques. I also interviewed several doctors prior to choosing him and I'm so glad I did. I am looking into getting my breast done with him next! more
I have been wanting a tummy tuck for many years after having my three kids. Now that my husband and I are done having children and we finally have some money for the procedure, we thought its now or never pretty much. Even though I've been wanting this so very much, I would think maybe I shouldn't do it because im getting older and who cares about the extra wrinkling skin on my tummy I can... more
When I first met Dr. Clark, I knew she was the Dr. to perform my breast lift and tummy tuck. I felt comfortable with her and her assistant, immediately. I had been losing weight since my twins were born in 2008 and had not wanted to lose anymore. That was great but I was left with sagging breasts and a tummy that I did not want anyone, including my husband, to see. Dr. Clark and staff made... more
I have 21 hrs until I'm on the flat side. So nervous, yet very much excited at the same time. EKK!
I have 2 small kids that need help doing pretty much everything still. I will have 4 days of round the clock help and then after that it's all me. So I hope by day 5 I'm strong enough to handle it.
Today I will be cleaning cleaning cleaning I want everything perfect and ready for when I come... more
Have contemplated a Tummy Tuck since having my 1st child, but hoped I would get my body back close enough to before to not need to. I would say I was ok with mild stretch marks and a little wrinkled skin I was left with. After my second child was born, it got worse, and no matter what I do exercise wise, I can't get rid of the loose pooch. The skin just never really went back like before and I... more
I had my first consultation 8/12/14 with Dr. Scott Green out of Sacramento so far so good he seems really nice and knowledgeable. I was referred to him by a good friend of mines who also had a tummy tuck by him. he's kind of pricey! I'm going to have two more consultation one with Charles Perry, MD &
Christa Clark, MD first before I give my deposit $1100.00 to Dr. Scoot Green
Getting a tummy tuck was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I don't even think I knew how much it meant to me until after I had it done. The first time (post tummy tuck) that I tried on clothes I cried. It felt amazing to be able to pick clothing items to try on based on the overall appearance and not whether or not I thought the material would cling to my flabby belly. I was also... more
I'm 9 weeks away from my TT and lipo of flanks, back, inner and outer thighs and knees. I'm so ready to be rid of this "flap" and "muffin tops". I start a 40 day yoga transformation this Saturday. I'm hoping to lose 2-3 pounds a week between now and surgery date. I know I can achieve my goals. I'm nervous about recovery but I know it will all be worth it to have a nice flat tummy for the first... more
My once flat tummy was destroyed after carrying full term twins (15+ lbs of baby). Another large baby boy 2 years later made it worse and I was left with lots of extra skin, a diastasis, and an outie belly button. I knew I would eventually get a TT but thought it was a ways off. The opportunity presented itself this summer and I decided to just go for it. I was totally unprepared the day... more
Well I'm very exited I'm scheduled now the long dreaded wait!
It's been a 4 year journey and seeing different doctors, changing my mind, being told I was too big, I need to loose weight. I'm 5'4 I was at over 200 4 years ago Lost all the weight got down to 160 and chickened out. I got pregnant in 2013 and gained so much weight. I went from 155 to 228 at the end of my pregnancy.... more
The results have exceeded my greatest expectations. After two children, belly fat and stretched out skin that was never going to bounce back; I made the decision to get my body and life back. They results from the surgery have left me with a flatter tummy than when I was a collegiate athlete with only 10% body fat . Wonderful staff and a brilliant surgeon. She changed my life. I can workout... more
I have been athletic all my life, never skinny, just hourglass shape with muscle.
After the first 2 pregnancies my skin retracted back to my abd's( never had a six pack, just flat tummy). But after the third pregnancy I could tell that this time around it would not be the same:( 2 1/2 years years later and a lots of exercises and a half marathon under my belt I still had that " extra " skin... more
I have been wanting to get a TT for about 3 years now. Somehow, it was not meant to be before, Life always came in the way and the TT always got postponed. After having 3 kids and no matter how hard I try, my stomach still hangs and looks very nasty. I call it my two pack (of rolls...LOL) 1 roll on top and 1 roll at the bottom.
I have been doing my research on Dr.'s and after contemplating... more
I have my surgery on Wednesday, I wish I wasn't so busy so I could prepare more. This all happened really fast, I just met my doctor last week. Payment was sent and I have my surgery this Wednsday at 1pm...Yikes. I am not going home after the surgery since I am married with four children and I work from home and knew I would be unable to rest so I will be at the Marriot accross the street... more
I gained a lot of weight with my first pregnancy 28years ago and lost the weight but the skin on my stomach never shrunk back up. I had tried everything including diet and exercise but nothing helped and I never thought I would be able to afford to have surgery to fix it. I just wanted to feel "normal" and not despise my body when I looked in the mirror. Got married to a wonderful man almost 3... more
My body was never the same after my first child. I'm normally an athletic build, 5'4" and about 118 lbs. but for some reason I gain a lot of weight when I'm pregnant. With all 3 pregnancy's I got up to 210 lbs. It took me about a year to get back to normal each time. But I guess I never really got back to normal. I have a stomach that sticks out and my thighs are pretty thick. I decided to... more
