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

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
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
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
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
No need to look further when you have Dr.Scott. from the consultation, surgery, post op appointments even an botox injection, his humor, bedside manner and gentle approach shine through. Very happy with his surgical, listening and proffesional skills. The staff in office and at surgery Center all made you feel very comfortable. Great Team! Very happy with the decision to see them for my needs... more
I had an abdominoplasty in February of 2007 with him and my daughter actually came to him for her breast augmentation. I had three children and had more of a scarring issue on my stomach. I wanted to get as many of those removed as possible and he told me what he could do for me. The tummy tuck got rid of a lot of them but unfortunately not all of them because they are wide and thick. Dr.... more
Over the past couple of decades, my body shape changed dramatically.....and not it a good way. My belly looked like I was pregnant. Then, I lost 30 lbs. and it became droopy. At the end of the month, I will be having a tt. Although I have had several other cosmetic procedures (breast augmentation, brow lift and face lift), I am a bit anxious about this one.....THE BIG ONE. more
My expectations are pretty easy.. I don't want to see the flap of skin on my tummy any longer. I am also having a breast lift and receiving implants. I am naturally very large and for my size they have really taken over my body shape and image. I have dents in my shoulders from my bra and the weight of them. They make dress shopping impossible with out alterations. And the best part is now... more
I am 42 years old and a mother of 3. I had 3 c sections and couldn't stand looking at my stomach. Being 4'11, there wasn't any place to hide that big belly. Its been 4 months and Im still a little swollen but I have a 28 inch waist already and proud to be wearing crop tops! lol. If you feel insecure about your stomach and it affects every aspect of your life. I suggest do it. more
After losing 105 pounds I had a lot of extra skin on my tummy and fat on my sides that wouldn't budge! I had two consults with Dr. Engel and spoke about allmy areas of concern. We mapped out a few procedures I will do over 2-3 surgeries. His honesty and opinion on how to split up the procedures was very helpfulto me. I have a young baby so need to splitup the surgeries so I can recover more... more
Hi! Just want to tell you a little about myself. I am 54 years old & I have lost 60 pounds doing weight watchers & working out 5 days a week. I feel great but don't look as good as I feel due to my tummy - I just can't lose it. So after keeping the weight off for the past year, I decided to get a TT. I go this Wednesday for my marking with surgery on Thursday.
I am so glad I... more
I had a large sack in front from 3 C-sections and weight gain. I found it difficult to do so many things because this sack was always in the way. I was very scared to go through the procedure, but Dr. Engel and his staff were excellent in every way! They were very thorough and available to answer my questions. All instructions were written out and provided ahead of time, which allowed me and... more
On Oct 11 I had a tt. After having six kids and working hard as I do. I felt like it was time for me. Today makes 1week in and I went this morning to have my drainage tubes and pain pump removed. While Dr. Lacerna removed those items and my binder I took a peep at my stomach and it looked soooo nice. I really like how Dr. Lacerna and her staff explained everything to me about pricing, what to... more
I am 46 yrs old, mother of 2 ages 19 and 23. I discovered this site a little less than 2 months ago while googling Plastic Surgeons in my area. I have to say without this site I probably wouldn't be moving forward with getting a TT but the information on here and a recent friendship I have made from a fellow TTer on here has sealed the deal. I am ready to get this done!! It is so great to hear... more
