I had the typical mommy body. Always looking 3 months pregnant. Muffin top over the pants...stopped tucking in shirts and wearing belts years ago! I exercise regularly but the body went into past 40 mode!
I've wanted to have a tummy tuck since my last child was born (she is now 15) but the thought of the pain told me it's not worth it. I met with many Dr's to discuss the tummy tuck, each... more

My PS is Dr. Jason Pozner in Boca Raton Fl . He did my breast implants in 2008 and did my eye bag surgery in 2014. He is a master of the female anatomy.
Today is the day.. Not as nervous as I thought I... more
I had lost 80 pounds and kept it off for 10 months - but no matter how much exercise I did, I had a lot of skin and fat around my abdomen that would not budge. It was frustrating to have lost so much weight, but look in the mirror and be so unhappy. I started to research lipo and tummy tuck options - although I was unsure if the money (and pain) would be worth it. I couldn't be happier I... more
A little back story - have had 8 previous surgeries with some being reconstructions of the first two doctors botched surgeries. I have horrific scaring from breast implants and lifts and brachioplasty as well as surgeons who were overzealous with liposuction / liposculpting. Because of this I had been postponing my circumfrencial lower body lift / tummy tuck for awhile until I could find... more
Dr. Jack is AMAZING!!! Each procedure was thoroughly explained with care and all my questions were addressed. Dr. Jack is an artist and a very compassionate person. I was most impressed when she asked me.... "are you exercising?" She cares that you maintain a healthy lifestyle. I must say, I've had EXCELLENT results with the SCAR REMOVAL process, I had stretch marks on my tummy, from... more
5'3, 125lbs. Wanting to remove loose skin from 60lb weight gain from my twin pregnancy. I am 5 months away from my TT and I have mixed emotions. I have been talking about this since right after my twins were born. But I am nervous because I have had plastic surgery before and was not happy with the results. Being unhappy with plastic surgery results I feel causes more anxiety and frustration... more
I have had a few things done, upper eye lids, eye brow lift, breast lift with implants. I had wanted to do some of these when I turned 40, but life has a way of getting in the way of what we want. Finally last spring I decided I wanted my eyes and the girls lifted. I had made a list over the yrs of doctors I knew had done work to people I knew and had turned out good.
I interviewed 4... more

I had 2 cesarean sections and the scar was ugly and caused my stomach to dimple over at the scar site. I was looking for a scar revision but knew that a full tummy tuck would truly make more of an impact as I had stomach fat that just would go away.
I was concerned that the tummy tuck scar would be visible in a bikini as many doctors told me that the way the perform this operation it would... more

After two grown children, decided for the mommy makeover. My only regret, is that I waited so long to do it. The process was easy and Dr. Rankin and his staff made this a very comfortable and positive experience. I love the outcome !! This was a outpatient procedure and the recovery has not been bad. I was able to get around pretty well within 4 days. One week out of work. The end... more

I would consider myself "the patient from hell" ;) I had an unpleasant experience with a previous surgery and was quite nervous to go through it all again! Dr. Delange and staff were wonderful.

Dr. Delange did not try to "sell" me any procedure I did not require... more
