So today I am 7 days post op and I have to say that it is truly getting better every single day. I have three amazing babies. They are 5, 3, and 1. I breastfed all three and they basically drank all my boobs! I gained 55 lbs, 50lbs, and 23lbs respectivally during my pregnancies. I lost the weight in between each of them. Since after my first pregnancy, I knew I wanted a TT and BA. After my... more
Hi everyone, so I did it! I have scheduled my "mommy makeover"!!! :-) scared as heck, yes, but yay! I have a 6, 4, and 4 month old, and my cute little body I once had, lets just say it deflated lol. I am scheduled sept 15th, so reality hasn't hit me yet but I def have anxiety just thinking about it. I am a DD large ol' birthing hips with some muffins and cookies mixed in. Lol. My warrior... more
I am a mommy of 4 wonderful kids that wrecked my tummy. Each pregnancy I gained and lost over 100 pounds. I'm so nervous for this surgery but ready to regain my outer body self Confidence. My schedules surgery date is on July 9th, just one week away exactly! I'm def most worried about the pain and swelling. I have had two c-sections so I am praying it is not worse pain than those!
After losing 100 lbs. after gastric RNY bypass, I am ready for a mommy makeover! I have kept my weight off for over a year now and can't stand the way I look with my clothes off. The decision to have a TT is a no brainer for me. My hanging skin causes problems and needs to be removed. The biggest decision for me right now is whether or not to do a breast lift with implants or without.
OK so I am a little late in this as my surgery is 4/7/14 TOMORROW!! But I have been on here and learned a lot through all of the many reviews that I felt like I should also contribute my experience.
I have obviously already gone through the consultation, pre-op appointment, and am paid in full! So I guess this is a fast forward to my surgery, which did I mention it was TOMORROW???!!! LOL!... more
I'm about 9 days post op now and would highly recommend Dr. Fahkre. I look great and have no complications. He was supportive and able to answer all my questions. His office staff are welcoming and kind. He is extremely flexible in scheduling. I seriously love my result. He was able to get me a super flat tummy. I'm a stickler for good looking belly buttons, and that he gave me. I also had a... more
I have been dreaming of a boob job and tummy tuck since I was 5 months pregnant with my oldest child; he just turned 17! I have been seriously planning for about a year, anticipating surgery next spring when I was able to pay off some debt that I acquired during a long, drawn out divorce. Surprisingly, I was able to do it a year before I expected! I spent (literally) 5-6 hours a day... more
So, I'm finally gonna do this, been talking about the whole tummy tuck thing for almost 10 years! I currently have saline implants and am planning on a breast lift and new silicone implants also currently planning on a mini tummy tuck with liposuction. I have gone back and forth between the full and the mini, I am terrified of my scar being too high with a full and my belly button looking... more
I originally went in for a Breast Augmentation consultation, though after having twins, I wanted to have a tummy tuck (I just didn't think it was in my budget). After, having a very thorough conversation with the surgeon about both procedures, I found that it was going to be made very affordable, I was very comfortable with the procedures, the surgeon and financing. I couldn't have been more... more
I had my mommy makeover consult with Dr. Moraitis. TT and BL. I will be having my procedures in April of 2014. (Hopefully) He is an amazing professional. He spends a great deal of time with you during the consult to truly listen to what your goals and expectations are. No high pressure sales. The office staff was great. I am a nurse and I work with several surgeons. I asked around;... more
After looking at myself for 22 years after having 2 children I could honestly say that a day would not go by when I did not look sadly at my sagging, pruned breasts that lay flat on my chest or my pooch belly that hung over my pants even though I was in excellent physical condition. Nothing but the augmentation and a tummy tuck could correct this as I did everything including lipo in hopes I... more

I've never been fully satisfied with the size of my breasts since I've been an adult. I never considered a tummy tuck/lipo until after having my twin girls almost 2 years ago. I've never been very skinny at 5'3" and weighing anywhere from 155-165, but since the twins, and trying to workout (CrossFit baby) and eat right (Paleo), I still wasn't getting the results I wanted; especially in the... more
I'm 36 yrs., 5ft, 150 lbs mother of 4. (3 boys 18,12,11 and 1 girl age 2.) I have been thinking about having this procedure since my daughter was born. So excited I have finally made the decision to do so. I've enjoyed reading many of your posts the last few weeks.
