Dr. Ambay is absolutely the BEST. He performed a tummy tuck , thigh lift and lower facelift ( at different times) for me, with OUTSTANDING results, I couldn't be happier. His follow up care is meticulous, and he is a perfectionist. In addition to his medical expertise, he is a very kind and compassionate human being and this is apparent to his patients. I highly recommend him to anyone... more

I am a mother of 3 and I have had c-sections. I have this flap of skin that hangs and I have done a list of diets and at a weight loss clinic I went to before, the dr. told me that the only way to lose the excess skin was to have a tummy tuck.

I needed hernia repair and decided that, after 4 children, I would combine the procedure with a tummy tuck. It ended up being the perfect solution as the general surgeon was able to repair my hernias with my own skin from the tummy tuck instead of mesh. I am two weeks post-op and am thrilled with my results so far. more
I am 50 years old,and I had my first at the age of 15 years old. I have had terrible stretch marks since then, I have never been able to wear a bikini. I have wanted to do this for the last ten years. I am not looking forward to the pain but I feel it will be well worth it. Doing it with a close girlfriend of mine, we are having it done on the same day. more
I had gastric bypass sept2010. I went from being a size 20 to a size 4. I hate that I feel uglier now than when I was heavy. I look ok in clothes, but it all falls apart when I'm naked.

I know what to expect and more importantly I'll have... more
