I wanted tummy tuck ever since my last pregnancy that left me with a pooch that would not go away.. I had my initial consultation with Dr.Tom 3 months before I actually had my surgery. I did a lot of research, consulted with few doctors before i met Dr.Tom. When Dr.T examined me and explained everything to me- I knew he'd be the doctor for me! I'm extremely happy I had my procedure done! I'm... more
I'm excited but a little anxious but ready for the surgery that's overdo. I've lost weight before but my stomach remained and continued to grow.

After having two kids who are now 35 and 30, I am finally going to get the tummy tuck I've wanted for over 3 decades. Due to financial reasons I never even thought I would be able to afford. But thanks to my mom and my hubby (2nd husband) it's going to be possible. 55 days and counting. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I wake up at night thinking about this surgery. I'm on this site... more
After losing 100 pounds by dieting and weight training, I finally had the strong muscular look of an athlete, but I always hid my saggy midsection skin under loose shirts. Now that I'm a personal trainer I had to get rid of this extra baggage once and for all. After two years of research and preparation, I decided my weight was stable and was physically strong enough to go ahead with the TT... more

I've been wanting a tummy tuck for over 2 years now and I think I'm ready to make that big step. I had four consults last year with 3 Orlando surgeons and have scheduled another consult next week to meet again with one of the same surgeons from last year.... more
Just met with the surgeon who will perform my umbilical hernia (which she said is odd looking?). She gave me two plastic surgeons names that she has worked alongside with a TT. Made an appointment for April 1 with the first one. From my research, he may be the right one. I am concerned with any surgery at this point since I had botched liposuction 14 years ago as well as a blood clot. Will... more

I'm going to be honest, I've always had low self-esteem.. this is the worst curse any woman can have. But, after I had the joy of my life, my body is putting an even worse impact on how I feel about myself. I know I created life and I love every bit of her. I just can't be happy.. anyways, I was initially interested in getting Lipo, but seeing all the reviews about the tummy tuck is making me... more
I have wanted to have this done for a very long time, after 3 C-sections and a natural birth my abdominal area looked horrible. Finally, I made the decision to have my TT and some lipo after my consult with Dr. Trevisani. This was not the first time I had consulted with a PS for a tummy tuck. I was expecting a flatter tummy right away but after reading all the reviews, I guess my swelling is... more
Lost 50+ lbs on my own. I want my body to look fabulous before my 50th! :-) I researched, consulted, saved and booked... First thing I've done for "myself" in years. My PS and his staff are amazing, loving, inspiring and encouraging! Initially I was extremely nervous. Allowing someone outside of my husband and my gynecologist to see all that I've camouflaged for years was not easy. After... more
After having 3 children, all via C-section, and losing 90 lbs, my belly was a wreck! a lot of loose skin and the dreaded FLAP! all my good nutrition ad hard work put in at the gym got me to my goal weight but didn't make my tummy look the way I wanted it to...I knew I was going to require surgery to get the results I wanted.
When I found my surgeon, it was exactly like when I found my wedding... more
