After having three children, with the third one completely messing my midsection up, I always knew I would want to look into having a tummy tuck to get rid of my "belt of skin". After reading and reviewing what to expect from this particular surgery, then looking into cost, I knew I was ready to take the plunge. more
I went for bariatric surgery and lost 122 pounds. My surgeon recommended Dr. Schreiber to help get rid of some of the belly fat. I was it was a long surgery and I had to stay overnight in the hospital.The pain was not as bad as I thought it was going to be but I did take my pain medications for several weeks.The best thing that I did for myself was renting a hospital bed it was really a great... more
Ok – So I’m never one to write a review (good or bad) nor do I ever think you should publish your opinions right after something happens (hence the 1 year delay). However, I feel very strongly that I should give credit when credit is due…
My Full TT Adventure: I had been to consultations for many doctors. I avoided most doctors who made you pay a consultation fee…. You can... more
After having twins, my abdominal area was a sea of loose skin. Dr. Sinno was very easy to talk to, he displayed a tremendous amount of professional experience, and was equally concerned about the artistic element of the surgery. He had a positive attitude throughout the entire process, and his staff was friendly and quick to communicate. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others. more
Hands down the best thing I have ever done for myself. I called Dr. Will's office on a whim after I went out on date night with my husband and started crying when he touched me. After two babies and c sections with serious weight gain and loss each time, I just didn't feel worthy of him being physically affectionate towards this ugly body of mine. The next day, I made the phone call. I did my... more
I've waited 18 years for this procedure and I finally had the courage money and faith to do it. I am only 5 days post surgery pain is manageable drains are still in pain pump is gone and im not seeing any bruising. I love my Dr. I had one scare due to leg swelling on day 2 but I just needed to push more fluids.
Here are some post op pics I have I like what I am seeing more
I am very happy with my decision to have my mini tummy tuck done. I absolutely loved Dr. Birely and his staff. The ladies were very warm and caring. Any questions or concerns I had were addressed. I would recommend Dr. Birely to everyone. He was a great surgeon. The surgery was worth the investment. I'm very happy with my stomach and the scar flattened out with no problems at all. more
I weighed in at 237 in October 2014 and decided enough was enough. As of April 2015, I'm down 45 lbs due to lifestyle changes (primarily diet) and I'm progressing in this journey! I'm planning to schedule my TT in November and as of May, will be on a go hard health and fitness count down to lose more weight and build muscle before the procedure. In May, I will start to document my journey... more
I have lost over 170 pounds since my Lap-Rny in April 2002, and have kept it off for successfully, so I am due for some skin removal and muscle tightening, and a little lips. Are there any supplies I should stock up on for the post op period? I remember before my gastric bypass someone recommended buying a long handled wooden spoon to wrap toilet paper around to help reach my behind when... more
I had three children and had weight loss surgery and well let's just say my tummy what hanging south lol I looked up local PS and his name Came up. Had my PC doctors give me a referral and that was it. Dr Aloor is awesome, kind and very caring even had another two surgeries from him and I am very pleased.. more
I had the Tummy Tuck, Panniculectomy and the Arm Lift. I am extremely pleased with the results, and am very glad I had the surgeries. I was very scared because I have heard it is very painful however, I had very little pain. Dr. Schreiber uses a spray in the surgery area which numbs the area for a few days and by the time it wears off the pain is nothing. Dr. Schreiber and his staff were... more
This was without a doubt the most frightening decision I have ever made! I've had three children, the last of which was a C-section, and never was I as worried as I was about having this surgery. I scheduled consultations with 4 surgeons and both my husband and I were most impressed, without any hesitation, with Dr. Cohen - his credentials and before/after photos speak for themselves! The... more
After having 2 kids by cesarean and never really having a flat tummy anyway, I decided to have a tummy tuck. I went through years of hating my tummy, I would work out, diet and although the appearance would get a little better, I was still unhappy with how I looked in clothes, which of course didn't make me a happy camper. I wish I would have had this procedure earlier.
I actually ended... more

Was supposed to receive full tummy tuck, muscle repair n Mons lift. Dr. Ravi Aloor said I'd be flat with only one procedure. After loosing 150lB's I was so excited to have this done. Sx was Feb 12 again Dr. Said I'd be flat. After I woke up from sx I knew something wasn't right I had no pain in my upper stomach where I supposed to have muscle repair n I still felt the rolls. I was panicking n... more
Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber is in a class all by himself. I am so blessed that I was referred to him. When I saw him and listened to him- I knew he was the one. His attention to detail is incredible. He looked me in my eyes and said "I got you", my heart instantly felt at peace. My body was his canvas and my scar is lovely, he is a artist. I can tell that this is not a job for him but a gift.... more
I'd like to share my experience with Dr. Wells office. I had a tummy tuck procedure in August 2014. I started to plan it in probably April after I had my first consultation. Since I currently live overseas, the office, and especially Tess, was so helpful to accommodate my limited schedule for my pre-op check-ups, post-op visits, everything! It was so easy! The surgery went well and I'm very... more
Dr.Schuster is excellent. He did a great job. I had a fully tummy tuck after removing incisional hernia and umbilical hernia. First hernia were fixed by my general surgeon and later Dr.Schuster performed the abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). No complications. Draining took a little longer though. Couple of days more. I am happy with my results. more

Although my surgery has not been performed yet, my surgeon Dr. Benjamin has been great about helping me through the process and making me feel comfortable.
The countdown has officially began and I am hoping that... more
