I have been reading comments on TT. Now that I am done with school , I am so ready to have a TT done this summer. I came in for an initial consult with the first surgeon today & the second surgeon consultation is next week. I was quoted for $10,400 for full TT with lipo of the bra area & flanks. The price is after a 3k discount for being a nurse. I have 3 months off before starting a new job... more

I knew after my first daughter I wanted a tummy tuck. I hated my stretch marks and my excess skin. No matter how much weight I lost I could not get rid of the skin pouch. After having my son I decided it was time to get my mommy make over and the first step was my stomach. I went to my consultation with Dr. Khorsandi and he was amazing. He made me feel comfortable he explained everything in a... more
I am 38, around 169 lbs. About 5 years ago, I was a little over 200 lbs. after my 2nd child was born. I lost the weight everywhere but my belly. It was frustrating and heartbreaking. I researched why it wasn't going away, it was because of diastasis recti. A tummy tuck is pretty much the only option to get rid of this problem. I will, however have to book my surgery in October when I will... more
I had a 8lb baby and standing 5'1.. he carried out in front and very low. After delivery my stomach never went back to normal at all. Herniated, separated abdominal muscles(beer gut look), lots of loose skin. Now my stomach is back flat and strong. My scar turned out good and healed just as well. Surgery day you are catered to with Dr Herte, she does only 1 surgery per day. She does not rush... more

I'm 33 year old mommy of 2. I was overweight after having my kids, so as motivation I set up the goal of losing 40 lbs. If I lost the weight and kept it off, I would get a TT done.
Well, after losing the the weigh (43Lbs AND COUNTING!) I started looking for surgeons. I met 2 different Doctors and I wasn't very happy. They were all trying to push pocedures I didn't think I needed as breast... more
Went to Dr. Smith with high hopes and came out with many issues from tummy tuck. I went to him at the followup appt after surgery to show him a lump between my rib cage in the center front that was never there prior. he explained that it was a fat deposit from the surgery and was common, that I would need to massage it to break it down and it would go away. I went to other specialist and tried... more
I had old scars and a bulging belly!! I excercised 3/4 days a week but it wasn't enough. I had a flap of fat that hung over and made me depressed. I ate well. No junk food etc..I am thrilled with my results!!
The care and compassion that was given to me from Dr. Hankins, Bambi and Samantha was absolutely the best care, Hands Down! All I can say is Thank You.....I am thrilled!!! I will add... more
I chose Dr. Parker after extensive online research. I couldn't find anything negative about him. Reviewed his before and after photo's and made an appointment for a consult. The staff was very professional and Dr. Parker made me feel very comfortable. I have no doubt that I made the right decision. more
I put this off after years of telling myself that I could cope with my body image for the rest of my life. I even joke about the brain on my stomach and tell myself that it"s okay. I had a date all set up only to give myself palpitations and ultimately cancel due to extreme nerves. Family members also reassured me that the cost and recovery time just isn"t worth it. Well enough is enough! No... more

The dr's answering my question, did not pay attention. My comments said; my dr. Attempted to drain seroma, no fluid. If they had read that, they would know, i had seen my plastic surgeon for the problem, instead of telling me to see him. Overall i am happy i did the surgeon, but didn't get my questions here answered, other then to see my dr. Dah. more
I had my first baby too young, when I was 20 years old. I was a dancer and started a career in modeling. My first baby weighted almost 10 pounds and considering that I was only 5'2, 120, you can imagine this pregnancy completed ripped my stomach. For years I hated every summer, turned down trips to the beach or lakes, and felt embarrassed of the way I looked in my early twenty's. I didn't have... more
Well today is the day, I kept telling myself I would write before today but life has been a bit hectic the last month. I started this journey actively about a month and a hlaf ago. After gaining 88lbs with my prenancies and needing two c section my one flat tummy is a saggy mess so I decided its time to fix it. I am currently on the way to the surgery center and I can say that if it wasn't for... more
Dr. Herte gets 10 out of 10 stars! She performed a tummy tuck that transformed me. After surgery I could wear a sheath dress, slim fitting tops, even a bikini again! At 48! And now at 58, I still can. My tummy is still flat as a board, my scar vanished quickly after surgery and I don't look as if I've had surgery. My tummy looks like it did when I was 20.
I was always slim with a tight belly,... more
So far it looks great. I am still a little hunched over but the scar is straight (something I was concerned with) and my new belly button is great. It doesn't look over stretched. I wasn't worried with stretchmarks, but they are gone as well as all of my loose skin. I had drains for about 7 days and now am just caring for the scar. Most of my bruising has subsided and things are starting to... more
