I normally am not one to write a review but because I researched so much on my own before doing this procedure, I wanted to share my experience with others so that it may help them the way it helped me!
I am day one post surgery for tummy tuck and lipo. Yes it is very painful but I am in absolute amazement at my results already!!!! I am truly impressed and so happy that I finally did it! ... more
Needed medically necessary tummy tuck after four pregnancies and large weight loss. Rash infection issues. More than just body reshaping. Not happy with umbilicus placement! Insurance DOES cover this charge if deemed medically necessary. I just wish I had done this 10 years ago with a different plastic surgeon. Please find another physician. more
I lost 145 pounds and found myself with rolls of extra skin that gathered around my upper and lower abdomen. Even though I felt great physically, I hated having to wear long shirts and loose dresses to hide the rolls that gathered below the waist. I asked a friend, a surgical nurse at a local surgery center, who she would recommend because she sees the handiwork of doctors firsthand. She felt... more
First off this has been a long time coming. I had lost about a 100 lbs 5 years ago but then slowly gained it back. I have lost it again and this time for good!! I found a doctor that I liked, felt comfortable with and was taking the summer semester off as it was so the stars aligned and I finally got my long overdue TT with Monsplasty too. It is still an ongoing journey as tomorrow will be... more
The outcome is more than I expected, I am truly happy with the results. I have wanted this procedure done for several years, (Tummy tuck and body lipo) cost referenced above includes all surgical fees as well as both precedures. My surgeon Dr. Hardy is a master in his craft. He listened to what I requested and he exceeded my expectations. Still only 8 weeks out from post surgery each day... more
I was so afraid to proceed with this yet miserable with the way my body looked if I did nothing. After carrying my son for 9 months, almost 20 years ago, I ended up with that dreaded apron of hanging extra skin. When I lost weight it hung further down but, never ever tightened back up.
Since this is a cosmetic procedure, many talked me out of it making me feel guilty, that I would take this... more
I have fantasized about o tummy tuck since my first child, he weighed 11lbs. I was 17 years old.... After having twins I longed for even more for repair on my tummy. Now it's staring me in the face and I am scared to death.
Regardless, LORD willing, I'm moving forward and will accept the outcome as it is, long recovery, no promises with a desired result, but can count on the frankin tummy... more
My experience at Coastal Cosmetics was great. I had 3 consultation's prior to going to Coastal Cosmetics and was not comfortable with the surgeons recommendations and what they thought they could and couldn't do for me. My last resort was coastal cosmetics, and that was the best choice I could have made. Dr. Basil was my surgeon and he did a phenomenal job, he told me what he could do and he... more

My daughter had absolutely gorgeous breast and tummy surgery by Plastic Surgeon, Dr Daniel Calloway. He fixed the changes in her body after having her 2 children. Unlike her experience, I had similar surgery performed last year at a local prestigious medical center. Despite 2 surgeries, I ended up with bulges, loose skin and an overall ugly look to my tummy. Since my daughter was so happy,... more
I've been overweight for over 13 years, two pregnancies later, 85 pound weight loss, I was left with a lot of extra skin. I'm a very active person, even with exercise and lifting weight, I couldn't get rid of the loose skin without surgery. After maintaining my weight for 2 years I rewarded myself with a tummy tuck. Best decision ever! I'm the happiest and healthy I've ever been :-)
I went to Dr Kirk for consulting; just to see what my options were.. She was very professional and discussed all of my options. For the best results I decided to go with a Tummy Tuck. There was pain and these drains get in the way.... But so far it's been worth it. She said I can see the best results at 6wks. I'm excited and this just the first week. Only uphill from here.
Day 7...drains... more

After giving birth to my "irish" twins I was left with a very bad over hanging belly. I decided to hire a personal trainer, and with him I lost 70 pounds. You would think that made me feel better. NOPE! The hanging skin looked evern worse. I was so depressed and starTed putting the weight back on. After my husband suggested the TT did I really believe there was hope. I was very nervous a b d... more

As a 54 year old christian woman, I struggled with the vanity aspect of an abdominoplasty. I also felt deformed with 2 stomachs (a pouch below and a muffin above with my navel separating them both). My decision was very personal; which involved much research. DR.TIMOTHY FEE, with Coastal Cosmetic was my wise choice. The staff is attentive, kind and professional, and DR. FEE is blessed with... more

I wanted my TT done first and my surgeon really wanted to do both separate he said I need good posture with my BA and the TT will leave me hunched. I'm so excited/nervous but after two kids and 75lb weight loss this mama is ready to... more
I am a 56 year old woman. I have had 3 C-sections. One C-section was a cut from belly button to pubic area, the other two were bikini cut. I have always exercised on a regular basis and I try to eat healthy. My weight is not a problem, I weigh 138 lbs. The problem is the scar tissue, the stretched out skin and stomach muscle. My youngest child is 18. I feel that it is my turn now. I have been... more
