The thought of plastic surgery was not something that crossed my mind until after my second child came along. I am 5'1" a fluctuating 130-140lbs, 36b but deflatted after breastfeeding each kid for a year, and fairly athletic. The day I gave birth to my second child I was 220lbs and looked nothing like the person I remembered before kids. I am now back in shape and exercise regularly and am... more
I am a 38 yr old who works out 5 days a week and i have tried to naturally get my body into shape and for the most part i am thrilled at where it is but it seems my belly sits out while I am at the gym. I can feel the muscles underneath there...way down there somewhere. I need to rid myself of the excess skin from childbirth and fluctuation of weight loss/gain through the years. i have been... more
Rarely have I enjoyed writing a review, as much as I enjoy writing this.
Today is 14 days since my Tummytuck and Breast lift/reduction. Last 2 weeks were full of surprises. I was surprised how little discomfort or pain I had; I was surprised how quickly I bounced back to my daily life but most of all I was amazed at the way my body looked. The final results are beyond all I could have hoped... more
I never really considered any plastic surgery until after I had my second child in which after that the last two resulted in c-sections. It really took a toll for my body. Since I'm done having kids and seen some results from close family and friends I figured why not! I have an appointment this coming Thursday with Dr. DeLange at Estética Institute of the Palm Beaches. I know a few gals who... more

I attribute my healing process and the results to an extremely talented surgeon. The surgery took under 4 hours! Dr. Vinas was the only surgeon I meet with that did not try to get me to have implants. I went in with a bra size of a DDD and wanted a reduction and lift not implants!! After our consult I knew he would be the surgeon I would use. He explained to me that his technique for lifting... more

A little history...I have had 2 children (almost 15 and 8) and gained a lot of weight from the first and never lost it. My max weight was 222.

I am getting some money from a settlement and decided to go for it now while I can. I... more
