I'm hoping to feel the same comfort and confidence I was once experienced. I have not had my procedure as of yet. Im hoping to get more insight from other on what they have experienced in terms of results, recovering, and pain. My surgery date is July 28, 2015 with Dr. Nilton Medina from Boston Medical more
I had by having neck pain and numbness in my arm. I have always been very ashamed of my body and have yo-yoed and extreme dieted by entire life. I have gave birth to twins and that made matters worse. Although overweight I have been at a 5'8 stable weight of 198 for 3 years. I visited several different plastic surgeons, but none of them had pictures on there website of a "real " working... more
I planned on having a tummy tuck/ mommy makeover in the summer and research shows that Boston surgeons charge the highest fee. Can someone explains why? I am a 40 year old mother of 3 and I want my body back (cliche). I like the before and after surgeries from Dominican Republic better than the ones from Boston. more
Introducing myself. I've been contemplating a BL & BR for about 4 years. When I went for my consult I had the surgeon look at my csection scar and tummy overhang. It's always bothered me but never before did I consider a TT. I'm roughly 5'7" (just under) and weigh 138lbs. I've recently started running and cardio after taking a few years off. I've lost about 10 lbs since early June. My... more
One week post op and even though I'm in pain (more "burning" than pain at incision site), I can't believe how flat my tummy is! After having 2 almost ten pound babies and one 10lb 1oz baby, who are now all teenagers, my belly was a mess. Even though I had BA surgery over 20 years ago and was totally pleased, I believed a tummy tuck was "frivolous" & "selfish" ( even though I had the... more
First review that I have ever written but would be remiss to not communicate what an amazing surgeon Dr. Cooper is. I am a mother of three children and four months ago Dr. Cooper performed both an Abdominoplasty/Saline Breast Augmentation and my results have been amazing. After surgery, I literally had a group of nurses surrounding me to admire the low placement of my Abdominoplasty incision... more
I lost all 50 pounds of pregnancy weight after my first and then had my twins 3 years later and I have again successfully lost the weight but I could not do anything about the extra skin on my belly or my saggy shrinking A cups. I have hit the gym this last year almost everyday to get rid of my belly but no amount of exercise will get rid of it. I'm 35 and way to young to be all covered up... more
Since I had my daughter I gained a significant amount of weight. I remember being 160lbs and then 230 after giving birth. I was devasted and for many years struggled to loose weight but nothing sticked. After a vacation where I felt to uncomfortable to join my kids it was a wake up call. I began working out consistantly, lost but hit plateu. I notice I begand having more upper back pain and... more
Finally I will soon get my mommy makeover! I am scheduled for a tummy tuck and breast lift with silicone implants. I have been waiting to do this for over 10 years. I went through a long period of time wondering if the cost is worth it and would I ever be able to afford the surgery. Well it's time... I want this for me. I am 5'4 135 pounds, I workout, eat healthy but will never be able to... more
I have 5 children, ages 17, 14, 4, and 13 month old twins. :) Love them all so much, but they have destroyed my body! Before having twins I knew I wanted this done, and after having them I was completely certain. From what I've read, most Drs recommend waiting a year after having children....so I am ready!!! I've been researching BA's and TT's as well as Drs in my area. Wow there is so much... more
I'm finally getting this over with and I'm super anxious and nervous! I just went to my pre-op and things look good. My doctor and his team and beyond nice but I can't help to feel so nervous! I've been thinking of getting this done for a while but I always back off. I gained a ridiculous amount of weight during a high risk pregnancy which left me with a saggy belly and one breast bigger and... more
I lost over 100 pounds which resulted in a saggy tummy and no chest. I had very little self-esteem and needed to complete my journey to getting fit and healthy.
Pro's - better looking and feeling body.
Con's - risk that results are not what I would have expected. Pain to endure, but let me add that the pain medicine worked exceptionally well.
Results - Phenomenal. I could not have... more

A little about myself, I am a 31 yr old mom of 3. I started my transformation after my daughter was born in 2008 since I let myself get to my heaviest weight (about 270 lbs YIKES!) and started to get depressed. I had always been a big girl and had periods in which my weight dropped and then went back up. I decided to look into having a gastric bypass (roux-en Y) and ended up having my... more
I'm only 5 Days out at this point. I'm had four drains, somehow I keep yanking them out and am now down to one drain, with a dead one still in place, hopefully to be removed at my appointment tomorrow. I'm quite anxious, about the loss of the drains, I don't know how I'm yanking them out, so I'm worried something awful will happen, especially now that I'm only down to the one. Mr PS is... more

I have the very droopy... more

Both were pretty big babies, my last one weighing in at over 9 lbs! Which in turn has left me with saggy skin and stretch marks all over my stomach. I also put on quite a few pounds and at my Six week post baby check I was 190 lbs! I... more
