I'm so pleased with his work my stomach looks fabulous and I really don't have a scar. I am a plus size woman I loved my curves but i didn't like my stomach. I had 3 children and i felt insecure about the weight gain. I came into his office for a tummy tuck and I had a surgery scheduled a week later I love the way I was treated by the doctor and the staff. I must say I'm glad I chose him to do... more
I am thrilled with the outcome of my procedure. After having two fairly large babies, my abdominal wall was separated and did not respond to physical therapy. The tummy tuck greatly improved my appearance, and I feel stronger in my core as well. The recovery from this procedure is difficult, particularly the first week following surgery, but the payoff is well worth it. more
After researching treatment options, I committed to a tummy tuck and a bit of filler around my nose and mouth. I had the option of water lipo, but for not much more I could have lipo and tummy tuck including my love handles.
Two high risk pregnancies that resulted in 110 lb weight gain (and loss) left my tummy muscles shred and a "fanny pack" of skin hanging over my c-section scar. I've tried... more
So I went to Dr. dreyfusss very excited I could finally get my tummy tuck after months of saving. My biggest problem which cause me to have self esteem issues was the stretch marks on my stomach. After my consultation he reassured me that half the stretch marks would be gone after getting my tummy tuck. Well that was not true in fact I still have the same amount of stretch marks I did before... more
Due to genetics and large babies (2 were 9lbs) I have a very flabby tummy. I have always wanted my stomach to match the rest of me...I'm 5'7 #135 and in pretty good shape. Weight gain has never been an issue for me as I have been the same weight +/- 5lbs since college. I exercise and have never been able to get rid of my poochie stomach. I have to dress a certain way as to not draw... more
Less than a week and I will go under the knife again. Last time, a year ago, for the Breast aug. Love it, so almost exact one year later, I'm going back to my PS for the tummy tuck.
Stat: 45 y/o, 105 lbs, 5'2". I wear size 2 pants, but looks a lot bigger. I often have to tuck, roll my extra belly into the pants to hide it.
Here is a few photos

After 3 children and menopause, I was so frustrated about the appearance of my mid-section. No amount of dieting or exercise helped. After going to see Dr. Casas about Coolsculpting, she explained why I wouldn't get the results without a full tuck. It's been a bit more than 2 weeks, it's healing rapidly and I love it so far! The recovery is tough, but like all good things, worth it in the end... more

I had Lap-Band in March 2008, then Lap-Band Removed in November 2013 and Sleeve (VSG) in February 2014. I have lost 100 lbs all together since 2007. Can't wait to get rid of these Bat Wings and excess skin and fat on my stomach.

I had the tummy tuck 6 weeks ago, two years after having brachioplasty (loose skin removed from arms). I lost a significant amount of weight several years ago. After maintaining for a few years I noticed the loose skin was just getting worse with time. Dr. G. did a fantastic job on my arms, so when I was ready for the next step, he did my tummy tuck. He did an amazing job, and was honest... more
Dr. Patel is amazingly kind and informative which created trust and confidence in me. He explained what to expect and what my new look was to be. I like the way he knows what a women's expectations are, and that he is a perfectionist and really makes you feel confident and beautiful again.
Dr. Patel's bedside manner is impeccable, and he also made sure I was healthy and healing properly post... more
I am am 43 yr old mom of 4 that was in bad need of a tummy tuck & lipo. 4 C sections & weight gain/loss through out all 4 pregnancies did a number on my body. I was weighing 226 lbs when Dr Patel performed a tummy tuck & lipo. I had already lost 15 lbs before my surgery but carrying around all that weight on my lower mid section was really hurting my back no matter what I did; exercise or... more
I'm scheduled to have a hysterectomy followed by a tummy tuck! I'm so incredibly excited to be finally doing something for myself!! I've decided to move forward and have picked the fabulous Dr Dhaval Patel to perform my surgery. I cannot be more excited and nervous all at the same time!!
I have been searching and reviewing tummy tuck procedures for as long as I can remember. I was actually... more
I'm 46 years old with three children ages: 8, 5,and 18 months. I am what you'd call apple shaped. I have very muscular arms and legs with a fat stomach. With each pregnancy my stomach muscle parted and the skin got loosers. I didn't have to look long for a plastic surgeon. I Google diastasis recti and video popped up with Dr. Otto Placik explaining what it was and how you would have to go... more
I am a 36yo mom of three. I finally realized no amount of dieting is going to change my "mommy" shape. I am for the most part happy with my weight, could always loose that last 5 pounds, but my belly is a constant distraction. I have a super strong core, but look constantly bloated & thick. TT time!
So...after looking at all the damage three kids could have caused me, I feel like I got by... more
I had my TT on Thursday, and after reading all of the reviews and experiences of other ladies on this website I was scared of the recovery. So far (knock on wood) it's been really easy and not that painful. I've been really good with my meds, diet, and moving around every hour that I can honestly say that I had made the right choice having Dr. Casas do my procedure. I didn't take any pics... more
I came in for a consultation with Dr.Johnson and I felt a great vibe as soon as I walked in the office. Gigi got me an appt same day and Anna was great. They did not rush me.I felt like i could ask as many questions as possible.He was patient, listened and didn't rush our consult. After a full day of consults. I choose Dr.Johnson. more
I have wanted to do this for several years and finally decided now was the time. I was nervous about the procedure but Dr. Casas and her entire staff were amazing. Jenny, her office manager, was also fabulous. It was definitely worth it, but please know you have to work hard on this as well to achieve the best results. The after-care is just as important as the surgery. I am thrilled... more

I cannot say enough about Dr. Epstein and his entire staff and especially his Nurse Erin. I had an extended tummy tuck with lipo and a breast lift. Having babies via c-section and nursing had totally destroyed my body. Dr. Epstein has given me an even better body and breasts than I had before having kids!! I lost 20 pounds immediately after the surgery and have gone down 4 pant sizes as well.... more
I am an athlete since college and always liked my appearance until menopause when my abdomen became flabby. Running and cycling did not improve things no matter how much I worked out. An old surgical scar from my belly button to pubic area looked so much worse. I wrestled with whether I was vain for spending money to correct my "problem area". My husband encouraged me to do it for myself if... more
