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 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
In my teens and twenties, I was significantly overweight. Over the years, I was able to lose weight and this left me with droopy breasts and a saggy tummy. Not a pretty picture in my mind. I'm now in my mid 40's, and looking to how I want to live the 2nd half of my life. I want to look good and feel good about myself. A Mommy makeover is part of that equation. I'm very happy with the results... more
I had a mommy makeover at the plastic surgery clinic in Mississauga Canada with Dr Lista and it was the best decision I made for myself. After 2 kids my body changed drastically...everything was sagging! I heard about Dr Lista through my neighbour who had a breast reduction, when i saw her scars i couldn't believe it, it was so nice and he gave her a very natural and beautiful breasts. This... more
Breast Lift with augmentation, abdominoplasty with muscle repair & liposuction. All procedures were done in the same surgery. Completed May 31st, 2013. I am very happy with the results.
I really wanted to get everything done in one shot. I didn't want multiple surgery dates. Breast lift was done after years of breastfeeding left them sort of deflated. Implants were 425 and 450cc on each side... more
I went for a consult with Dr. Goldberg a few months ago about an issue with my exsisting implants (not done by him). I was also curious about a tummy tuck and asked if it made sense to have it all done at once. I am a mom of a 1 and 4 year old, and had also gained and then lost 100 pounds. Dr. Goldberg was so calm and informative that I decided to do the entire mommy makeover and booked it... more

I have wanted a breast reduction since highschool, but wanted to wait till I had my children and knew we were finished having kids. I was extremely nervous to have the surgery, and many times thought about chickening... more
On August 17-2012 Dr. Goldberg performed a tummy tuck, arm lift and a thigh lift for me while the gynaecologist that he recommended performed my hysterectomy. I had lost over 100 lbs. (gastric bypass surgery) and was told that I required a hysterectomy. Since I was a saggy mess, I took the opportunity to get everything done at once. It was one of the best decisions that I ever made – no... more

But as the years went by they just get got bigger and... more
