After having 2 C Sections and now having completed my family, I felt it was the right time to fix some problem areas. I had tried working out and did not see the results that I wanted. My breast were sagging due to breast feeding and my belly area had "loose skin" that looked as though it "overhung". My abdominal muscles were basically nonexistent.
After speaking with Dr. Alderman I decided... more
When I was pregnant with my beautiful twin girls I gained 60 pounds - going from 130 to 190 and a size 4 to a size 12. After two years of working on my own to lose the weight through diet changes and exercise - I lost 50 of the pounds - I still had quite a bit of excess skin in my belly area. No amount of exercise would make an impact and I knew surgery was the only option to address it. I met... more

I've been creeping this site since January, when I went for my first consultation. I'm still checking in on others' reviews to see if my experience is normal. That being said, it's only fair that I put it out there to perhaps help others as this community has benefited me. Also, Dr. Alderman deserves all the endorsement she gets. If you're considering her, you won't be disappointed with her... more
I have had 3 children and 2 c-sections. I gained 50,80,and 70lbs each pregnancy. I nursed all of my children. I went from a size 7 to a 22 and now I am an 8-9.

I getting ready for my upcoming tummy tuck and breast augmentation on the 8th of April. I was going to wait till next year, but with the support of my husband we decided to go ahead now. I am only nervous because our twins just turned 2 and I hope that me... more
I have had three kids in under 4.5 years and I thought that I was bouncing back between the pregnancies. However, now that I am done the saggy boobs and extra skin frustrates me as I try to hit new fitness goals. I don't look like someone who goes to the gym multiple times a week- I look like I have the beer belly :) SO after lots of thinking and researching I decided to go to a consult. I... more
I had my 1st consultation with Dr. Davoudi on 3/26. As soon as I walked into the office I felt welcomed. I sat in the waiting room about 10 minutes then taken back. I was instructed to put on the robe, Dr. D came in shortly after and he is amazing, made me feel so comfortable listened to what I want, measured me and told me exactly what he could do to my body to help me reach my goals.... more
Ok, let's see. Sometime around September 2014 I realized despite having lost 60 lbs and grueling 2 hour daily workouts, my 2 tummies were not going away. Tired of camouflaging the rolls, I logged onto Real Self and started to read up on lipo and tummy tucks. I started out hoping (but knowing better) that I just needed lipo but as I read, the realization set in that I actually would be more... more

I am so grateful that I HAD the courage to finally go through with the tummy tuck, had I known years ago that a tummy tuck would get rid of the pouch and the stretch marks I would have done it in my 30's. My body now looks amazing. stretch marks 98% gone! I tried everything before this surgery to get rid of my pouch... was considering liposuction, but after going to a few surgeons and doing... more

I finally had the courage to schedule my procedure. I have been wanting it for years after pregnancy left my midsection looking a hot mess. With my last baby I lost the weight so quickly but as a result it left me with a saggy belly. My breast have also suffered because of pregnancy. My stomach was significantly worse with my last baby, but I am done having babies and now I'm gonna take care... more
I was a mom that worked out, ran marathons and kept very active. Since I began having children my body would alter between 20lbs of high and low weight but never would lose the mommy pouch and the side small handles. I always held my shape well but small things like love handles would remain. As years went on I lost tissue in my breast and I began the breast sag that could be hidden in bra but... more
I'm finally ready for my mommy makeover. My youngest child is 4 months old and I was planning lipo around this time last year, but I had to postpone due to our little surprise.

I just decided on this surgery a couple months ago as I am tired of not fitting into any of my pre-pregnancy clothes and hating my body. I had 2 C-sections and have always had a pooch on my lower stomach, but it is now wrinkled and loose. Breastfeeding and age haven't helped my boobs either, and I've always wanted bigger breasts, and now would love some that don't hang so low, lol. I'm also... more
I'm all in on the tummy tuck no doubt about that, my butt is pretty big already but i'd like it rounder and i'd like a little more hips. Im also looking at getting a breast lift at the same time. Is fat grafting and Brazilian Butt Lift the same? I'm not looking to get my butt and hips that huge just rounder, i'd like to take care of it all at one time.
New Boobs and Tummy blessed with a... more
