I was hesitant before looking for a surgeon, but I was sure that i wanted this procedure done. I had lost A LOT of weight and the end result was somewhat disappointing. I had a lot of extra loose skin and it made me feel ashamed of my body. I did not want to go out and especially did not want to wear anything that was form fitting. I searched for different providers and chose Dr Cambeiro, a... more
After 2 pregnancies, one of which was breached for the entire duration, my stomach was still so distended. I worked out 4-5 times a week, ate healthy and I even had a fairly defined stomach from the front. However, from the side, I still look about four months pregnant. Pregnancy had also deflated the fullness of my breasts.
I interviewed several plastic surgeons. A few asked for consulting... more
I have a consult scheduled for September with Dr. Richards in Las Vegas, this is my first step. I want to feel more confident and comfortable in my own skin. I have 2 grown kids and have lost 120 pounds in the last year, I can not wait to have a flat tummy and a breast lift. I live within 100 miles of the clinic. more
After consulting with 4 different LV surgeons and doing research for over a year, I went to Dr. Roth for a tummy tuck and breast lift with augmentation. He was amazing.
From the pre-op to extensive post-op care, I always felt like he was truly concerned for my well being and invested in my results. In addition, his staff is equally amazing. They were always patient and understanding with my... more

I will never be able to say enough good things about my experience! I feel like I have been given my life back. On the day of my surgery I weighed 202 lbs, had a 44 inch waist, and 49 inch hips. I felt frumpy and discouraged because I was unable to lose the weight through diet and consistent exercise no matter how hard I tried. I had a tummy tuck and lipo on my flanks. It was an amazing and... more
Just starting to do my research haven't had any consults yet I lost over 65 pounds in the last two years and decided I want to do something for me so I can feel good finally after having my twins 2 years ago my body hasn't been the same. So do they finance with not so great credit? Do I apply for financing before consults or after or will they help me do that? how hard is the down time I have... more
It's been tough living in this body since I was 17. I had my first child very young and have remained overweight ever since. I had my second child at 19 and my third child at 21 and I've been living in this worn out body ever since. over the past 5 years I've worked really hard and gotten in shape however nothing is helping my deflated chest over my gross belly. up until recently my husband... more
Two years ago I had just had my third and last child. My sister (who has twins) had always had wanted her boobs done. I personally had never wanted them because I had never seen them not look super round and fake. She went in for surgery with Dr. Stile and even the second she took off her bandages her boobs looked amazing! Almost exactly like they did when we were in highschool! It made me... more
I only met with 2 Plastic Surgeons in the LV area. After meeting with Dr. Cambeiro and many many recommendations not only from friends but also fellow nurses I knew I didnt have to look further. I am rounding my total cost because I did pay additional for the Pain Pump which I found to be extremely helpful after surgery to help control pain while ambulating. Dr. Cambeiro and his staff made me... more
My story is much the same as many I've read on RealSelf. I had a daughter when I was 28. Over the last 19 1/2 years, I have exercised and followed a clean diet. I never could get rid of the icky extra skin on my tummy. Honestly, I never thought I would get this type of procedure. I have always hid my flaws under cute clothes and good bras. It wasn't until the last six months or so that I... more
30 years of struggling with my weight took its toll on me mentally as well as physically. I remember thinking "no point exercising and eating right now, my body is beyond repair." with my skin baggy and stretched like an old mother cat. I was 5'3 and 243 lbs when I was finally brave enough to step on a scale ( I imagine that i was around 260 at one point maybe more.) I am amazingly blessed... more
Finding Dr. Hankins was an abosolute miracle for me. I searched tons of websites for various plastic surgeons here in Las Vegas and was not happy with the "mommy makeover" resluts I was finding. I was just about to make a deposit for a Beverly Hills surgeon when I found Dr. Hankins site. I quickly called his office and they booked me right away for a consultation. From the very first visit... more
I have 5 amazing boys, ages 7 down to 2 year old twins. I gained about 55 lbs with my first child and that was when my muscles separated beyond compare. Although I work out regularly and weigh less now than I did prior to having children, I still always look like I am 3 months pregnant. I also got stretch marks all over my entire belly area, mostly with my first, but always one or two more... more
I've been using this site as a super helpful tool for the last 3 years. NOW I finally get to start my own journey.
I'm 27 and have 3 kids (6yr, 4yr and 4 mos). The first left me a bit saggy, the second alot saggy and my 3rd she left her mark and then some. I was going to have a tt w/mr, bl,ba and lipo about a year ago but we got a surprise baby instead. I stopped nursing 2 months ago... more
Ever since I had my fourth child 7 years ago things didn't snap back like things did with my other three. I wasn't shocked I felt lucky that things went as great as they did after my first three and I was lucky to have "lasted" this long.
While In labor with my last, I felt my tummy rip, I will never forget the pain or feeling its odd to be able to pin point the moment. After that I was... more
I am 40 years old, have 3 children and am married to the love of my life! I could never begin to say enough wonderful things about my husband. He has always loved me (from the time I was 125 pounds and even when I was 208 pounds after my pregnancies).
My bad body journey began 22 years ago with the birth of our first son. I didn't gain a lot of weight however at age 19, I had a c-section... more
I'm 27 year old mommy of 3 beautiful boys! They are 2,4, and 6. I am only 5'0 and weigh 113 lbs. I got really huge with all 3 of my kids and have been dealing with my stomach looking unbearable! Before I had kids, I was always skinny. I gained about 60lbs with the first one, 55lbs with the second one and 53 with the last one. I of course lost most of my weight from each one and ended... more
