I had the typical mommy body. Always looking 3 months pregnant. Muffin top over the pants...stopped tucking in shirts and wearing belts years ago! I exercise regularly but the body went into past 40 mode!
I've wanted to have a tummy tuck since my last child was born (she is now 15) but the thought of the pain told me it's not worth it. I met with many Dr's to discuss the tummy tuck, each... more
So yesterday I booked my tummy tuck with Dr Omulepu of Vanity Cosmetics. Yani has been my coordinator, she's a doll, so sweet and funny. I'll update this part itself when I meet Dr O and more so, after my tuck.
Ok, I'll say this, there's been times where I felt I was being pushed to hurry up and book with them. Also, I was offered a great deal but because I didn't book that same day I lost... more

Idk how the recovery will be since I can't lay on my butt or my stomach but I just want to get it over with so I don't have to go through surgery anymore and be done!

What motivated me to go for this procedure was to feel better about myself. After my pregnancy with my now 6 year old daughter my belly was a saggy, stretch mark mess. There are more pros than cons to this procedure the obvious cons would be the pain following the surgery for about a week but after that it is all pros. more
I am 2 days post op! Everything went great. The nurses were so pleasant and accommodating. On day of the procedure, Dr. Pane come and did his markings. He has excellent bedside manners and explained everything thoroughly. The anesthesiologist also came in and introduced herself. I felt comfortable and assured that I was in good hands. When I woke up from the procedure, I didn't recall having... more
After researching the TT for 28 years... I finally found Dr. Ravinder Jarial at Vanity Cosmetics... Let me just start by saying he is the ultimate best plastic surgeon. He is very professional and has the best bed side manners I have ever seen. His work is top grade. I am so pleased with his work I will recommend Dr. Jarial to anyone that really wants to look there best.
I only have great... more

August 2012 I had a Breast Augmentation. I have absolutely no regrets. My confidence has gone up. Now my next journey begins. I am having a full tummy tuck with the muscle repair and liposuction. I was going to have the tummy tuck done at the same time as the augmentation but i completely chickened out. But not no more I can't wait to be rid of all this yucky stuff. My surgery is February 9th... more
I finally met the infamous doctor, Dr. Moises Salama and I'm going to get my Total Make Over by him. I originally was going for my Brazilian Butt Lift and Thigh Lift first. Dr. advised me if I want to achieve the hour glass shape results that I want, I must consider a Tummy Tuck and Thigh Lift first.. I can get my BBL 5 months after the Tummy Tuck and Thigh Lift, so I went ahead and set up my... more
I have contemplated so long on whether to have it not have this procedure & as I've put it off for so long I'm finally going to do it. I want to not only do I want to look good but I want to feel good about myself as well. Some people like tithing in fine the way I am, however I'm not comfortable with the way I look therefore I must fix it! =)
I have to lose 9 lbs & I have lost 4 so far... more
I was unhappy with the enormous size of my belly. My husband saw information about the clinic and the doctor and he knew I wanted do it. We originally thought all I needed was lipo. So we went for a consultation and decided to do a Tummy tuck that same month. I love the results! Now when I exercise I am happier more energetic and I'm not continually looking at my fat belly. more
A little back story - have had 8 previous surgeries with some being reconstructions of the first two doctors botched surgeries. I have horrific scaring from breast implants and lifts and brachioplasty as well as surgeons who were overzealous with liposuction / liposculpting. Because of this I had been postponing my circumfrencial lower body lift / tummy tuck for awhile until I could find... more
I dunno. I feel like my questions are stupid and annoying. To the point where i don't get responses on here anymore. Also the ppl I comment on don't really respond. One did, she was very nice. My experience on RealSelf hasn't been the best. I got way more answers and knowledge and support on my tt group on fb.
I saw a lot of very nice very skilled doctors in Miami. But after seeing about 6... more
Dr. Jack is AMAZING!!! Each procedure was thoroughly explained with care and all my questions were addressed. Dr. Jack is an artist and a very compassionate person. I was most impressed when she asked me.... "are you exercising?" She cares that you maintain a healthy lifestyle. I must say, I've had EXCELLENT results with the SCAR REMOVAL process, I had stretch marks on my tummy, from... more
