After deciding with my husband that we were finished having children I decided it was time to put back into myself. After extended breast feeding one child and nursing my other child for 9 months I was left with very large, saggy breasts and a "mother's apron" that no amount of exercise seemed to help.
After asking around, the consensus seemed to be that Dr. DeLuca was the "boob doctor" and... more
My motivation to do a Mommy Makeover was because no matter how much I worked out, did pilates, or running, etc. my stomach muscles would never see results. I had a bulge that was caused from having two 8lbs/9lbs babies. I have done everything over the years and nothing worked for my stomach. So I decided to give both my breast and tummy a tweak and thus far I love my results. The pros of this... more
I am having a Mommy Makeover on June 6th. I am having a TT, BL, Implants and upper and lower Lipo along with a partial scar removal beside my breast. I just want to feel like me again. I have a 10 yr old and a 5 yr old. My first I gained 70 lbs with!! I am 5'4'' and 150 lbs. I despise my abdomen and back fat!! more
This is more like a grandma makeover for me I have been waiting a very long time to do this and I'm very excited. I have a 22 year old daughter she was born a c-section I ended up gaining a lot of weight. Last year I had weight loss surgery and lost over 80 pounds. I am 5'5" and currently weigh around 130. I am a 36B and hoping to be a full C. I talk to Dr Barach about 350 cc or 400 cc... more
TT, BA and lipo. Otherwise known as the mommy makeover. What's wonderful name for a procedure that makes you feel great. I am almost 11 weeks PO and feel great. The first few day were a blur lol. But I do remember waking up after surgery and thinking my c section hurt more.
The are only two things that I would tell patients is that the drains are a pain just simply because they are in your way... more
With my 40th birthday fast approaching and two beautiful boys (age 7 & 10) I decided it was time to lose my "mommy tummy". I had lost most of the weight I put on during pregnancy, but realized that the loose skin was not going anywhere unless drastic steps were taken. I had tried Velashape for 9 months, but the results were not what I was hoping for. My 36A bra size has always made me feel ... more
I just turned 70 and have been thinking about this surgery forever! My surgery date is April 24th, and I am also having implants exchanged at that time. I am a cancer survivor and had issues with the implants I had a few yrs ago, so need to exchange them. So I am a little nervous and excited at the same time. So many things to get myself ready for this. Love this site, it is so encouraging... more
I've been considering having a Mommy makeover ever since I saw the aftermath of birthing and breastfeeding my first child. I obviously wanted to put it off until I was done having children. Now that my husband has had a vasectomy and I am blessed with 3 gorgeous boys I feel its time to get what I deserve...my body back!
I'm pretty petite, 5'2" and currently 120lbs (my winter coat - hoping... more
I wanted to get a breast augmentation and tummy tuck, but agonized for years over whether it was something I should go through with or not. Would it look ok afterward? Would I have complications? Was it really worth it/a good idea, or should I just let it go?
I am still recovering from surgery, but so far am happy with the results. I was very concerned about scarring and am prone to... more
I am 35 almost 36 years old. I have been married for 11 years and I have 3 children, a 10 year old boy, 7 year old boy and a 4 year old daughter. I have been overweight since middle school! I am 5' short ( hahaha) and I used to weigh 190 pounds. I have lost 70 pounds total since Jan of 2011. I workout 5-6 days a week and eat healthy and have maintained 120 pounds for a year. I have a large... more
Well I wasn't going to write this just yet, as my surgery isn't for another 3 months, but I see others on here also posting pretty early.
I am the mommy of 3 amazing girls--almost 8, 2, and 9 months. I have been self conscious about my belly ever since I had my first, but after having my last, my belly (and boobs) are just unbearable to look at. My friend decided to go for the mm and that... more
I had lost substantial weight and had never had a flat belly. Breasts were getting longer and longer with age. It was time to pay attention to me :)
I had a tummy tuck and a breast lift and the results are incredible. It has been less than 6 months and the scarring is almost tranparent. I never took a pain killer! Not even right after surgery.
I wish you could see the results for... more
