After losing approximate 193 lbs I sought out the expertise of a plastic surgeon to help rid me of my excess skin. I had consultations with three surgeons. The first two surgeons had very different opinions as to what I needed to have done. Their bedside manner was not what fit with my personality.
When I came across Dr. Jeremy Williams I knew I found "the one". He didn't make me feel ugly... more
I have wanted a tummy tuck since my first child was born 10 years ago. I weighed 120 when I got pregnant, and 220 at the end of it. That kid wrecked my body. I swear, it had nothing to do with all the yummy food I shoveled in my face 24/7.
I went to 3 different consultations. They all seemed like great surgeons, and I would have been happy to have any one of them perform this surgery. I chose... more
Dr.Herrmann is the absolute best surgeon hands down. My partner and I chose him out of a few others and I am so happy we did. I once weighed 305lbs and lost the weight over a course of 4 years. The day before surgery I weighed 147lbs and now 6 weeks later I weigh in at 155lbs, but I still have a ton of swelling and have been very limited in my exercise. I am so glad I decided to have both the... more
My procedure is on April 8th. I am doing a full tummy tuck with lipo on the flanks, banana rolls, saddle bags and inner thigh. I'm 15 days out now and starting to get extremely nervous. I scheduled this back in January and thought I would lose 10 lbs in preparation. However, I'm a serious stress eater and this hasn't been going well on that front. I've read that 10 lbs won't make a big... more
After having lost roughly 150 pounds in a year and a half and then over the next 2 years trying everything I could to get rid of the extra/excess skin I finally gave in and had an abdominoplasty, gynecomastia (glandular resection) and liposuction done.
At this point I couldn't be happier with my decision to have gone through with it. I've never felt better and more proud about myself then... more
I've known I would someday get a tummy tuck 8 years ago when my twins were born. I was left with a severe muscle separation and a large amount of extra skin that makes me look 15-20lbs heavier than my actual body weight. I normally look about 5 months pregnant unless I'm wearing jeans or some kind of shapewear. I've finally decided to take the plunge and have scheduled a surgery day of... more
I had contemplated a tummy tuck for the last 10 years since no matter what I weighed or how much I worked out, I could not lose the loose skin around my middle area and no amount of situps strengthened my stomach muscles. I wish I would have done this years ago as it not only improved the look of my stomach, but it also has improved my self esteem and confidence and I have actually been able... more
In spite of intensive running, cardiovascular activity and workouts along with a balanced diet I wasn't getting rid of the loose skin I had in my lower abdominal region. From the moment I walked into the Center for Cosmetic Surgery and met Dr. Vath, I knew that this was a procedure I needed to have done to improve my self confidence and image of myself. more

Having been diagnosed with Dercums Disease in 2009, the past several years have been painful with weight loss virtually impossible. This disease affects the lymphatic system and numerous lipomas (fatty tumors) form throughout the adipose layer of skin. The tumors get embedded sms tangled in soft tissues, around nerve endings and press on organs causing at times debilitating pain. I've been... more
DR JEFF SWAIL, changed my life. I had no idea that this was available to me. I was 32 had had one lg baby and have great "family genes" in which, all of us females gain all the weight around the mid section and lower belly. I made a decision to have surgery prior to weight loss. For me this was my inspiration to loose weigh and be heathy. I am including my before and after pictures. The after... more
I debated with myself for 5 years to have or not have a tummy tuck. My biggest fear was going into surgery and not coming out. Shortly after my 35th birthday I decided I was ready and did some serious research on Tummy Tucks but I never come across any questions about a larger mons pubis after tummy tuck. I am 6 months post op TT without lipo. So my question is: How common is it to have a... more
Hi, I went to Dr. Vath in golden for my tt and flank lipo surgery. He and his whole staff are exceptional. They calmed me down, were completely honest with me. Did not try to sell me more procedures. Plus- they are kind of a fun loving group. They love what the do and it shows. A few suggestions for post op:
Get a recliner
Stay on top of the meds. I can only take Tylenol
with codeine . And... more
I have been working out for years. I even became a certified cycle instructor. I watch what I eat and work out, but could never get rid of the tummy. That is when I started looking into a tummy tuck. I researched several plastic surgeons in Denver and found Dr. Squires and after my free consult with him decided he was the one for me. more
Been thinking about it now and told my hubby and he said just do more sit ups. Ummm, he never had two babies over 9 lbs sit inside his belly! So just reading and learning more about tummy tucks until hopefully next Spring! I have to plan this out as I want to loose a few more pounds as I am 147 lbs, 5'6 and 38c. I love my boobs but that stomach of mine, smh! I was pushing 170 lbs for... more
My goal is to tighten muscles that are stretched beyond belief and remove the excess skin around my lower abdomen. I just want to feel normal again. I don't want to look down at this mound of flesh and have to tuck it into my clothes anymore. It dominates what I wear. And sometimes I don't even want to leave the house. I just want to be comfortable in my own skin again.
Just a few more days... more
I'm finally just going to do it!! Yes a tummy tuck, I've wanted to do this for soooo long my friends. I hate my belly!!! No matter what weight I am it has bothered me. I have one child she is almost 15. I didn't particularly like my belly even before having a child. I got to a point in my life where I feel like it's time to just do something just for me. I don't think I'm... more
My first pregnancy was twins.......very big twins.......and it caused muscle separation, loose, saggy skin and a lot of stretch marks. Two more pregnancies and 11 years later, I found Dr. Vath and had a tummy tuck. I was worried about recovery, safety, if I would like my results, if I could still play sports, if the incision would heal right, etc. This was one of the best decisions I have... more
