I first want to say that Dr. Barnett is an AMAZING surgeon, and I was shocked and saddened to see some of the reviews about her here. She has changed my life, and there aren't enough words to describe how happy I am that she did my procedures (tummy tuck, muscle repair, and lipo to sides, auxiliary folds, and chin).
I am 33, and I had one giant baby whom I carried for 43 weeks until he was... more
Dr. William J. Welsh, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Tampa Fl. I could not have chosen a better doctor for this procedure, Dr. William J.

Ms. Esther Penayo is the Patient Finance Coordinator, very professional and pleasant. She takes time... more

After consulting with Dr Marguerite Barnett, she encouraged me to reduce my breast size and tighten my stomach due to neck injuries and pain in my cervical area. I took her advise after she reminded me of her double board and Harvard diploma. This of course, impressed us, but sadly don't let her credentials fool you.
My proposed surgery was expected to take 3 hours max. and she opted for a... more
Hi ladies. Like many others, I've been obsessed with this site for a little over a month now probably, but I just mustered up the courage to complete my profile. I've had two beautiful little ladies and I have a wonderful husband. I had a health scare after having my youngest lady last year, so I have to be cleared by my physician to have a tummy tuck, so hopefully I will know for sure soon if... more
I've been on the fence about creating my own review, so many of these ladies have been such a blessing on my journey. ..I have to be a blessing for someone else. So here goes nothing. ...I am 5 days post op and this so far has not been nearly as bad as I thought it would be. It has definitely been more of a mental game than physical. I'll upload photos soon before/after. :)
OMG.....what a... more
After 2 pregnancies with 60+ pound weight gain and loss, and 9 abdominal surgeries for removal of endometriosis I was in much need of a tuck to regain my figure. I am still only a few weeks post op, experiencing a seroma and swelling. I think in the end I will have the body back that I hope to have.
It's been 9 weeks following my TT, and I have needed a seroma drained a few times. I still... more
I am 33 years old and the mother of 3 children; 15, 11 and 4. . My 1st born was 9lbs, 12 oz ….and the damage was done. I didn’t gain weight anywhere BUT my abdomen. I would literally be about to tip over..LOL I gained 50 lbs during that pregnancy but once he was out, man oh man, my stomach looked unrecognizable. I thought it resembled chitlins, I didn’t know if I should put cocoa butter... more
Sudden death of a spouse caused me to put on 50 pounds over a three year period. Woke up one morning and realized I had to change. Diet, exercise and reconnection with my high school sweetheart and I am down 70 pounds...back to where I am supposed to be. My reward to myself...Tummy Tuck by Dr. Scott. more
After 2 pregnancies, my tummy definitely needed help. I saw several doctors and ended up choosing Dr. Jamie Perez because he is formative, knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable. His good reviews are a plus also.
Dr. Perez aims for perfection and goes extra miles to help you reach your goals. The result I got is phenomenal. The difference in my appearance and my personal life is... more
10 years ago when I delivered daughter I weighed 255. Now I weigh 155. Have weighed between 124 and 255 in past 10 years. My stomach hung with a fat apron that was uncomfortable to say the least. Dr Abe was recommended by friends and other doctors. He was knowledgeable and he and staff treated me like family. Very happy and will post pics next week. Can't wait for 4 and 8 weeks post to... more
I am a 41 year old mother of a wonderful 16 year old girl. I am 5'3" and weigh about 170lbs. I have been stalking RS for many years much like some of you. I have wanted to get a tummy tuck for the last eleven or twelve years simply because I could NOT get rid of the unwanted/unwelcome belly fat no matter how much I worked out, which seemed to kill my motivation at times.
I finally caved and... more
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Daniel Diaco, to include his entire team!!! They are true professionals - attentive and informed all the while maintaining a warm and caring atmosphere. From my very first appointment, Dr. Diaco listened and took the time to answer all my questions. And each appointment went the same way - I never felt like I was just another patient that day. He is... more
I considered having a TT for approximately 10 years. I simply couldn't get comfortable with the procedure. I decided to meet with Dr. Lacerna to see if there were any new options available. There wasn't. I spent a lot of time contemplating this decision. After deciding to move forward with the procedure, I almost let internet research get in my way of moving forward. For every good... more
Ever since having children in my 20's I've been complaining about my mid-section. It's just in my head all of the time! Why? I feel something has to be done about it, because I'm still unhappy about my appearance even though I workout at least 5 to 6 times per week. I'm at a place in my life now where I want to fix it. So, on this journey I seek to find a Doctor to help me claim my body... more
My body was a mess after losing 100 lbs. I had a tummy tuck and breast lift... (One surgery) and I had about 12 lbs. of skin removed.
My results exceeded my expectations! I healed nicely and I took 3 weeks off from work... I have an office job, so that made it easier.
The worst part was the drains but not nearly as bad as I expected. I needed help at home for about 5 days but was moving... more
After having my son in July of 2012 I became really motivated to overhaul my lifestyle and be the best version of myself for my kid. I got really into running and Pilates and lost 65 pounds. No matter how hard I worked, diet or exercise, my stomach looked worse instead of seeing improvement. After talking to my trainer she told me the only option I had was to pursue surgery and I consulted... more
I elected to have a tummy tuck after I lost a great deal of weight and skin on my abdomen hung below my groin. I am very pleased that large amount of tissue was removed and the result was fantastic. Results I experienced were equal to what I was told. Pre and post procedure care was very good and all my questions and concerns were addressed promptly and thoroughly. more
Went last year after a 60lb weight loss to look into having a tummy tuck. Met with the office/finance coordinator who said that she would be doing the consult since the dr was unavailable. So needless to say she arranged the financing with another credit card that of course I really didnt need but it was the only way to pay for it at the time and said I was prime candidate (mind you this was... more
