Im a mother of 3 with who suffered from chronic shoulder, neck and back pain.
After 11 years, meeting many doctors and telling myself I was going to get me body back, I finally did it.
Early fall of 2014, I found Glow Surgical Arts and Dr. Renee Marshall. I still consulted with a few others but met with her 3 more times before I booked my surgery date. Dr. MARSHALL & GOREMAN are both... more
It has only been almost a week since my surgery and I'm already blown away by my results. I have 3 kids and I'm 32 years old, I've been dreaming of having a mommy makeover since I knew I was done having babies. Dr.Struck completely exceeded my expectations. I had breast augmentation, TT and lipo on my love handles and my thighs. Dr.Struck and everyone in his office are genuine, caring and I... more
I can't believe I finally went through with it, I've been dreaming of this for 10 yrs since my first child. 4 children later and a type 1 Diabetic diagnosis finally got the courage to make myself happy. I'm so happy I did. These first 2 weeks of recovery were tough. I'm just beginning week 3 and excited to see my results unfold before my eyes.
I had a full tummy tuck, breast lift and... more
I've been hooked on this site since I first started my boob journey. I can't believe I'm participating now instead of just reading all of your reviews! I had my pre-op appointment on Tuesday and will be getting my new boobies on this Tuesday, May 19th! I'm also getting cool sculpting on my flanks, and a mini tummy tuck the same day. Posting a before pic below. I normally wouldn't do this... more
Will implants alone give me good results or should I get a lift? Would lipo fix my pooch or am I in need of a TT?
I am nervous-excited w/scheduled 3 consults in May. I've been researching Dr’s for a long time since I've wanted implants for 20+yrs. I'm a 38 yr old mom of a 5 & 7 yr old both BF for 10 months each. I'm 5'6 155#, I work out 4-5 days a week and very active. I was planning... more
I'm a 45-year-old mom of two kids in college and I've always looked great in clothes, but never felt good naked. I was in pretty good shape before surgery--I worked out at the gym 2 to 3 times a week and walked my dogs for an hour a day. I have always hated my stretch marks! My boobs always looked great in a bra, but they were like deflated balloons outside of a bra. They would flatten and... more
I've been wanting to do this for the past 10 years and is now that I'm finally getting it done. After 3 kids and a lit of running and working out I still don't see any improvement in my mid section. On 3/19 I'm getting a tummy tuck, lipo n breast augmentation. I'm getting a little nervous but very excited to see the final results. I think I'm more afraid of the recovery process then... more
After my second child and excessive weight gain during pregnancy I noticed a lot of changes in my body. I lost 65lbs and my boobs have officially deflated. I went from a 34 DDD to a 34 B. I'm 5'10 and small deflated breast do not look right. After the extreme weight loss as well I have sagging skin on the stomach that needs work.
It's official!! I will be getting a mommy makeover on June... more
First off, if I could give 10 or 20 stars, I would. Dr. Behmand is kind, patient, responsive, & cares about the work that he does. He aires on the side of caution & although I'm still healing, the results look better daily. I had a breast lift, fat transfer to my butt, & a tummy tuck. The Breast lift scars were done so well, you could barely see any stitching at all first day out. I was... more
Hello! My husband and I started looking in to a BA for myself earlier in 2014. After multiple consultations with different doctors, including my regular (insurance covered) doctor, it became apparent that having a BA done wouldn't be a wise decision without repairing my weakened stomach. I struggle with lower back soreness and problems from an old disc injury, and am learning that I suffer... more
I've wanted a Mommy Makeover for the last six years and finally got the nerve to schedule a consultation and surgery. A neighbors mom shared her experience with her surgeon and even jumped up and down without a bra. I was finally sold. I have known other friends that have had both tummy tuck and breast lift and they were glad they had it done. I have a separation in my abdomen that... more
I've been thinking of getting a tummy tuck (big tummy from 2 pregnancies) and lipo (fat thighs) for a year and decided now is the time to do it while I'm still 'young'. I have a small frame and been relatively skinny my whole life until fertility treatment, then 60 lbs weight gain with first pregnancy and 30 lbs with the second one. I think my natural weight is ~115 lbs and I was 141 a month... more
I was 18 years old when I had my first set of twins, and then I had my second set just last year (2013) when I was 36. In the 18 years between pregnancies, I solidified in my mind that I was going to have a mommy makeover. Since I was divorced from my first marriage, I wasn't sure about whether or not I was going to have more babies--but I certainly was open to it (depending on whether or not... more
Unfortunately, by the time I had discovered this site I hadn't felt as I comfortable as I do today, so you won't see any post ops of my body, but I was not by any means a small lady. I have had three kids and one alone takes it's toll.
With my first pregnancy I had gained 100lbs(literally ate for two, or three lol) I, however, managed to lose it in one year and went back down to 120lbs.
I finally have booked my TT/BL surgery and have paid the deposit!!!! I have been dealing with loose, wrinkly stretch-marked skin for over a decade now :( These stretch marks are on my belly AND my boobs :( Clothes have not fit right since my first son was born. I am always trying to suck my belly in and am so self-conscious about the skin. My waist just always looks "thick".
I find that the... more
My date is set and I'm all paid up. Feeling excited and scared. Hoping I made the right decision with my PS. He's nice and knowledgeable with great bed side manner. I did a lot of research so much so that I almost scared myself out of having the surgery. LOL. I had about 6 consultations and I narrowed it down to 2 PS before going deciding to go with Dr. Struck. Part of the reason, why I chose... more

My surgery is scheduled for May 7, 2014 at 7.30 am. My husband has yet to come to terms with my decision to have a TT, BA & lipo. Although my daughter is on board and extremely supportive. Im 5.3, 125 - 130 lbs and it's been hell trying to maintain my weight around 115 - 120. I'm an avid exerciser, but cannot do anything about the 2 & 3rd stomach rolls. OMG, it's so disgusting.
Finally it... more
I just turned 41 and told myself that I would decide to do a Mommy Makeover in my early 40's. With my upcoming paid sabbatical giving me 5 weeks off, I decided it was now or never.
I had consultations with 2 local plastic surgeons and dozens of conversations with fellow girlfriends who had undergone the Tummy Tuck procedure. It was after those various conversations and professional... more
