**This may be a longer review since I'm clumping everything up until 5 days post op on this one. **
I had a breast lift (no implants) and a full Tummy Tuck with muscle tightening and lipo. I went to Dr. Soto in March for my consultation. Dr Soto answered my whole list of questions and recommended the procedures that would help me meet my goals. He did recommend a Lower Body Lift because I... more

I love fitness, and it has always been about health and strength for me. It's what I've spent two decades teaching my daughters. It's not about numbers on the scale or the tag in your clothes. I believe that, still do, but I guess I didn't know what I didn't know. Even though I had c-sections and 9 lbs babies my tummy snapped back well until I hit 50. Holly cow! It's time for a tummy... more
My motivation, like a lot of women on here, was getting back my pre-pregnancy body. I've always been small in height/weight but large in the bust. Most thought I was crazy in wanting anything done, but no matter how many hours I spent in the gym (and trust me, I spend a minimum of 2+ hours a day in the gym), no matter how healthy my diet is, and no matter what focus I may give to my chest/abs,... more
After several years of consideration I finally decided to go for my Mommy Makeover. I am a 41 year old Mom of 4 lovely children. I am very active and work out regularly. I was always able to take off the weight after my pregnancies but was left with some stretch marks and saggy skin that I didnt like. I also had saline breast implants that were 16 years old that needed to be replaced. I did my... more
I'll tell you a little bit from the moment i started my search for the best doctor. I called almost every plastic surgeon in Miami and Orlando, and met with some of them. I was really scared because I am very picky and I was very detailed on what I wanted and I couldn't find a doctor that could do a "good" tummy tuck. I am a mom of three childs, all under 2. My belly was horrible after my... more
Hello Realself Beauties! I am 43 years young, a petite 5 ft, 128 lbs. I have 3 beautiful children, who are all grown and married. We raised them to be great responsible adults and now it's time for me! I started researching the mm around 8 months ago, I went to several consultations in my area, & none were the right doctor for me. So I started researching out of state doctors in Florida. After... more
I spent over a year researching procedures and doctors. I met with several surgeons in the area, all of whom were very nice. However, I felt that they really weren't listen to me with regard to my needs and concerns. Dr. Joseph listen to my concerns and was very helpful in my decision making.
Dr. Joseph and his staff are truly amazing, I would recommend them to any of my family or friends.... more
I am not one to write reviews, but I decided that i needed to 'pay it forward', because of all of the stories that I read about other women's experiences. I have lived on this site on and off for the past year and daily for the past 6 months and now it's time to share my story to help someone else in their mommy makeover journey. Since I am not a fan of anticipation, I decided to post my story... more
Born into a family of large breasted women, I was the flat chested one lol! I've wanted breast implants ever since I was a teenager, and wanted a tummy tuck after having my first child and seeing what pregnancy did to my once flat tight tummy. Once I got enough money, I knew I'd never get the opportunity again and decided to be selfish and do something for myself for once! I am so glad I did... more
What can I say ?? Dr. Soto is amazing ! I not only came out looking amazing but I have made some friends in the process !

I jus wanna thank everyone at Dr. Soto's office !! He is not only a doctor but he is an artist !! more
I'm seeking for an Orlando specialist that do Mommy makeovers for less than 10,000. I have also salines implanted by Dr. Debaisse in 2002 in Winter Prk, Florida. I got capsules around it & they couldn't or wouldn't settle, I don't know if I have to replace it or remove it & make some fat transfer from tummy to breast just to have a more natural look. I'm not an expert so I would think the... more

I had my son when I was only 18 years old and impacted me physically! I'm only 5'1 and weighed 112-115 lbs before I became pregnant. Forty weeks later I was over 172 lbs! Which means I gained over 55 lbs for my little frame and as a result gained excess skin and tons of stretch marks throughout my tummy, pubic area, thighs and breasts. Before I didn't have not one stretch mark. I originally... more
Well I had my consultation and my surgery is scheduled. Although nervous, I could not be more excited. I absolutely loved loved loved my Dr. He has an awesome bedside manner and I feel totally comfortable and I think that is important with such a big procedure. Not having any more kids is bittersweet but I'm ready to have my body back. 7 weeks from tomorrow, cant wait!
I really want to keep... more
Less than a month to go!! I have wanted a tummy tuck since my first child at 18 (I was so tiny, the 40lb weight gain did alot of damage!) Then I had my son a few years later....then twin girls many years after that! They sure as heck didn't help the situation!! I just want to be more comfortable in my own skin. I have done so much research my heads spins, but its so helpful! Its great to hear... more
