My biggest decision was where to have this surgery done. I looked at a variety of options including Miami, Mexico, Cuba, and The DR. When I originally chose to see Dr. Kasrai it was because I wanted a in person consultation even though at that point I was looking at doing it abroad. From the first phone call they won me over. Eva her patient coordinator was friendly and was able to get me a... more

My husband supports me, my other relatives think it's crazy and that I don't need such thing, some other prefer not to comment. I am not 100% sure. :( . What do i do?????? Is it normal to be doubtful and... more
I had been wanting do do something with my tummy ever since I had my 1st child(10yrs ago). I had initially met Dr.Jugenburg 5yrs ago for a mini TT consultation, at that time, he advised that I would be better off not doing anything and that I should wait after having more children. So here I am today, 2 kids later and ready to finally get my body back! Always keeping Dr. J in mind, I went... more
Had my last pre-surgery check in with the doctor today and I'm beyond ready for Tuesday. I'm getting breast reduction (currently wearing a 32G bra and spilling out) and tummy tuck (no amount of exercise over the years has helped lose the "muffin top"). I will be happy when I can go buy a bra in a "normal" store instead of ordering online from the UK or pay through the nose from a boutique,... more
I had my consult with Dr Jugenburg on Feb 2nd 2015. I had done lots of research and was fully equipped with my list of questions. After discussing options I'm booked Feb 26th for a full tummy tuck and breast augmentation. I've opted for the drain less TT approach as this should result in a lower, thinner scar and easier recovery! (with no yucky drains to care for). As for breast augmentation,... more
I have been wanting to have a tummy tuck since delivering my daughter 15 years ago and being left with many stretch marks and a split tummy. I may be loosing my sick leave at work in 2016 so my husband says if i'm going to do it this is the year (he is sooooo supportive - he loves me the way I am but hates seeing how unhappy I am with the way I look. I am having a very very hard time... more
I first met Dr Bray when I was checking out surgeons for liposuction in my belly area. Having two kids had given me an unsightly saggy spare tire for a belly not to mention that I breastfed, giving me breasts that looked like pendulums. When we decided not to have any more kids I knew it was time to try to do something to fix my body to help me feel better about myself.
Right from when I met... more
So I just booked a consult with Dr Andrade in Newmarket,ON for Jan 9th, 2015. This is a big step as I have been lurking on here for a while looking at before and afters. I am considering a TT and BA. I will post the results of my consult when it is done. Here is a before pic-weight approx 168lbs. I will need to take the dreaded before picture as well. more
I was unhappy with my sagging breasts that had lost volume and sagging skin above my c section scar after having two children. I had a mini tummy tuck, breast lift and 540 cc saline implants. The surgery experience was relaxed the stay overnight very much appreciated. Recovery wasn't that difficult and aftercare was excellent. I am very happy with Dr. Jugenberg, his staff , and the outcome of... more
I'm a 39 yrs old mother of 2 wonderful kids. Like thousands of women, I wanted my body back after the toil of pregnancy, my husband was absolutely against my having surgery, it took him some months but he eventually came around for I would never do anything without him being on board, and he was just the best caring for our kids while I recovered. I don't know how much I weigh, I've never... more
I am nervous. I am 119 pounds I have big boobs but they are sagging a bit. I also have a small amount of excess skin from my pregnancy. I am not sure if I am doing the right thing. I don't like the way my tummy looks in my clothes. I am having a tt and a bl but not sure if I want to add implants. Please give me some feedback if you have had both of these surgeries. more
My breasts were asymmetric and had lost their volume. My tummy was unattractive due to Caesarian scar and childbirth. The breast lift and augmentation is better than I expected. They are now almost the exact same size, not too large and feel great on my body. I should have done it 10 years ago and the scars are healing well. The mini tummy tuck was a more intense procedure than I expected... more
2 weeks and i am going in for a new makeover. After three kids and nursing them for 18 months each, it has taken a toll on my B's and Tummy. I am nervous, excited, scared...questioning this and also worried about the size of BA (275cc) i am getting. Anyone had 275cc?...i don't want them to look too big. I am currently already a 34c.
Just got my prep finished and I am actually sick with... more
I had a consult on April 22 with Dr. Mitchell Brown in Toronto. I am going with the round, cohesive gel silicone implants under the muscle. Pre-op is June 17th and size will be decided then. I am currently a size 32A, if that. I am approx 5'4" and 115lbs with a small frame. I am hoping to be a 32D. I'm getting a bit nervous, but I have wanted this a long time. The only person I have told is my... more
I have had (and continue to have!) a fantastic experience with Dr. Kao. I first saw him 2 years ago for a tummy tuck consult. I still had weight to lose. When I mentioned that, most Dr's would pass you off as a waste of their time, but Dr. Kao was so helpful informative. He took the time to explain the procedures to me and answered any questions I had.
I lost the weight and was able to have my... more
I have been struggling with writing about myself for quite awhile, but just a day before my Tummy Tuck and Breast Augmentation, I thought maybe now was the right time.
I am a 36 year old Mommy to 2 beautiful children. While I'd like to blame them for the current shape of my body, they can't be blamed for everything.
My situation is a little different than others, which is one of the reasons... more
I am very anxious for my 2 consultations coming up on March 10, 2014. I have been researching for a few months and was contemplating travelling to Nicaragua for this procedure. I'm terrified that I will need a blood transfusion and having one outside of Canada scares the crap out of Me. So despite the larger price tag I have decided to stay close to home. I am meeting with Dr Wanzel and Dr... more
Before I started my amazing journey with DR KASRAI, I had full tummy tuck with muscle repair(no repair was done!) so right away I could already see everything coming down, the skin began to hang more and more each day, my first surgeon ignored my concerns each and every time! My belly button I had complications with and again to be ignored and scared and saddened with my choice of surgeon from... more
