For years the gym and dieting were constant with little to no change in my appearance. I could lose weight but still everything sagged. I'd go to the gym faithfully even paying for personal training but again little to no change. Since I was a teenager I had a pooch. Finally I have the flat tummy I always wanted. I figured if I was going to have the surgery I would go all the way and have it... more
I will start out by saying how much I appreciate everyones inspirational stories on RS. I have been a stalker since I made my decision to get the Mommy Makeover. I have learned so many things. What to buy, what experiences could happen, what will happen (pain) My family thinks I am crazy to put myself through this, but they are very supportive. I only have a few individuals that were not.... more
I want to thank all the posts on RS, this has helped me soo much. I love all the positive feedback. I am scheduled for the MM on April 22 and my family does not understand why I want to go through the pain associated with the MM. You can't explain it to them, it's just something I want done for me. I have had 5 children all natural and have breastfed each one. So my body needs to get back... more
I'm scheduled to have a mommy makeover on March 5. My plan is a full tummy tuck, no lipo, breast lift and Aug with "gummy bear" implants, 350. I'm very active with crossfit and everyday life as a busy nurse, and mom. I lost 50 lbs, and more in inches, through hard work using my fitnesspal, life style change (no diet for say...just healthier choices), and working out. My breast were DD,... more
After having 3 children, 1 by C-section, and several surgical procedures for female issues, my body was a blubbery mess. I have always been blessed with full D-cups but after breast feeding all 3 kids my boobs were jello in a skin wrapper. I always said, "if I wore a square bra, I'd have square boobs." There was just no firmness left in them.
Then about 4 years ago, I started working out... more
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
I've wanted a Mommy Makeover for over 25 years, but just wasn't able to find anyone I trusted enough with my body until I had my initial consultation with Dr. DeLuca. I scheduled my appointment to meet Dr. DeLuca because he had by far the most "before & after" photos on his website with the best results I'd seen any other surgeon's website. From the moment Dr. DeLuca walked into the examine... 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 had bad breast implants explanted by Dr Lynch, he did a great job, and did not look horrible after, I had nothing done, had a baby, went back for mommy makeover breast lift, implants 330cc under, full tummy tuck, Lipo, the price was affordable, my breasts are perfect!!!!! My tummy is tiny 24", my new belly button gorgeous! Pre surgery, I weighed 120- I was afraid he would turn me away, but... 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 recently had a mommy makeover done by Dr.Deluca. I am extremely pleased with the work he did. It was better than what I expected. I was nervous about choosing the right doctor and researched many of them. However, my friend who didn't even have her surgery done by him even told me to choose Dr.Deluca. I'm a mother of two children and my body was destroyed by my pregnancy. I was... more
