Consulting with docs for a tummy tuck with breast lift/augmentation. Want to get this done aug/sept. All three docs had different opinions on the breast lift/aug. I really want saline implants but all docs seem to push for silicone...why? I only want... more
Before I went to Dr. Schreiber I would never wear a bikini at the beach. I hated the way my breasts and belly looked. After my mommy makeover I can now wear my favorite bikini again. He is a true artist and is amazing at reshaping bodies. I have already referred two of my friends to him! Highly recommended! more
I am a fit 40 something woman and gave birth to twins 3 years ago. As a result of my twin pregnancy, I had a prominent diastasis (separation) in my abdominal muscles. I was told from the beginning that the only way to return to my post-pregnancy self (and get my "abs" back) was to have surgery--essentially a tummy tuck. My OB/GYN told me it was a very painful procedure, and that as an... more

I put that thought in the back of my mind and thought do I really need this right now????
Anyways all was set, date, fiances (hefty price I might add),... more

Having multiple pregnancies can create a body that you never anticipated. As much as you love your children for me it was hard -very hard- to relove my modified body.

I just turned 27 and am the mother to a beautiful 4 year old girl. I've always been "curvy" growing up but pregnancy sent me in to the 200's and my waist just lost control. My 38D breasts went to an 40E and then deflated to a 38DD after I stopped nursing. I've dropped most of my pregnancy weight and have stayed stable at this weight for awhile and I figured there's no... more
