I am very much a believer in self love and acceptance. It was hard for me to admit that I wanted/needed a medical procedure to bring my body to one I recognize and relate to. I have a small frame and carried both 8 lb babies high, I had worked out and ate a healthy, clean diet. Then I gave up when I couldn't achieve any results. I ended up gaining 16 lbs over my normal weight. I quit... more
I like him. He seems to have a great bedside manner and that is a plus when one is getting so much work done. I like his staff as well. Right now I'm looking at getting a Tummy Tuck with lipo of the back. I might also get the Juvederm but we will see. If all goes well I will go back and get the breast augmentation which would be another 4000 or so dollars. First things first, I have to get my... more
I could not be happier with my decision to chose georgia plastics and Dr Celestin to perform my mommy make over ! I had an abdominalplasty with lipo and breast reduction reconstruction and they have been incredible from beginning to end! I'm still recovering and they are continuing to help! I love GP more
I lost a little over 85 lbs in the past 2 years and while I was so proud of myself and was loving how I was looking in clothes; I wasn't looking it out . I had a lot of extra skin especially in my tummy area.
my hubby got me a tummy tuck for Christmas and after going to 3 consults I chose to go to Dr. Amy Alderman with the Swan Center ...... I am 5 days PO an I feel great honestly. Dr. ... more
I've been every size between 0 and 14...currently about a size 8, 5'0" tall 132 lbs (hit the gym hard the past couple weeks and lost 4lbs / 1.5 inches off the tummy ...wooohooo!!)....and no matter what size I am, I still have a protruding, wrinkly looking belly....even more wrinkly when I lose weight. I've looked into having procedures done in the past, but not nearly as intently as I have... more
I've been to Dr. Jeffords 2 times and he's the best at what he does....I had tummy tuck & lipo then lipo. The results were awesome results, staff very nice and friendly, they took good care of me. He's the best I promise...the lipo was a breeze the 2nd time he sculpted me for perfection money well spent

After extensive research for a surgeon, I chose Dr. Fara Movagharnia due to his years of experience and quality of work. I opted to have a tummy tuck and repair my breast reduction scarring caused by another surgeon. I am two weeks post-opt and selecting Dr. Fara Movagharnia has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. His patience first approach, personable nature, and genuine love... more
Dr. Movagharnia is the BEST!!! He works MAGIC!!! He is very skilled, talented, loves what he does (loves his patients), caring, blessed, knowledgable, very respected, and a God sent to say the least.

Before getting my procedure done I would not show my stomach at all. I work out 5 days a week & been doing so for most of my life. After having my kids my body change, lost all the weight except for this little pouch. I never consider plastic surgery until my husband said if your not happy fix it. So I went online started booking consultations I went to 10 surgeons. After my surgery in... more
I am definitely nervous about the upcoming procedure. I have definitely educated myself. Any advice I would give anyone considering this procedure is to do your homework, know your goals, and choose your doctor wisely. Everyone's experience will differ so don't solely lean on one person's opinion!!!
Had my telephone pre-open today. To be honest, I really didn't understand why I had this... more
I had a severe abdominal diastasis after a very healthy twin pregnancy. Delivered full-term (40 weeks), healthy twins, 8 and 9 lbs, and three years later a healthy 10-lb baby. After 4 years of trying to get back into an acceptable shape with exercise (Pilates) and special diastasis exercises with a personal trainer (Tuppler Technique), I decided to see a surgeon just for a consultation. I was... more
I am 5'3' 160 pounds and I am ready to fix my tummy. I am trying to set realistic goals for how I want to look so that I do not get disappointed with my results if it is not what I expect. The biggest challenge for me is realizing that everyone has a different build and body type so I wont look like someone else who may be having great results because we may not have the same body type. I am... more
I have been contemplating a TT for years now and have finally decided to get my tummy tuck. I guess you can say it's my early 40th birthday present to myself! I have gone to several consultations and decided to go with Dr. Song. My pre-op is 6/1/15 and my surgery is scheduled for 6/11/15. I'm excited!
Hey ladies! I'm am three weeks away from the flatter side and I'm dreaming about... more
After giving birth to my last child in 1981 I knew my abdominal skin would never go back to normal. I exercised consistently for over 3 decades, ate healthy & kept my weight in the range it should be for my height 5'3". I was so tired of feeling uncomfortable in my clothes & sometimes seeing photos of myself where I looked like I was either in early pregnancy or having a small beer belly. ... more
I'm 41 yrs. young with 2 kids by c-section. I'm 5'4 weighing in at 192LBS. I had a consult with Dr. Mike song on April 24th and he was amazingly honest and answered every question with precise. He did tell me I had vesacal fat and suggested I lose at least 30 lbs to achieve a result that I would be pleased with. Needless to say I scheduled my appt. for June 19! I'm scared and excited at the... more
The motivation for my procedure was to help me to become more of the person that I know I am. From initial contact to completion of the procedure, to the present I have had excellent care and information. Almost 5 weeks later and back to a completely normal pain free routine I am still receiving personal care and advice directly from the Dr. Movagharnia. I couldn't have asked for more and am... more

I've had a cesarean cession which left huge scar and it was done verically . It look horible specially after lots of fat accumulated in that area . I've tried exersizing but nothing could be done because I've lost my muscles during that procedure.So I was hopeless , I wanted to do a tummy tuck so bad . more
I was in need of a tummy tuck, along with lipo on my back and inner thighs. I was excited to have that hanging fat pouch gone from my stomach, but now I'm over a year post op and I have to have a TT revision and a lot more lipo on my thighs. I have not gained weight, I've actually lost a total of 65 pounds and I exercise 5days a week. My stomach is still big without the flap, and I have love... more
Dr. Allyson Maske was amazing! I went to her 3 years ago frustrated with my tummy and legs. I work out often and have strong leg muscles. But, the pockets on the top of my legs have always bothered me. And, age and children were not a friend to my mid section. I saw Dr.Maske and immediately felt comfortable, excited, and ready to get on with surgery. She was understanding, knowledgeable,... more
