Dr. Hargrave in Albany NY was wonderful. I have had extra skin in my abdominal area since I lost weight as a teenager and I promised myself that I would have this done when I was finished having kids. Now I am 48 and although I would have liked to do this a few years ago, I finally decided to go for it. It was a 3 hour long surgery and after almost two weeks I am still recovering. I am really... more
I contemplated having a tummy tuck for many years but wanted to make sure my family was complete. I decided to book when baby number 4 was 2years old. My children were all over 9lbs and natural births. I have always been very petite ranging from 100-116lbs. My stomach was very stretched out and I had a pretty severe diastasis recti that exercise alone could not fully repair to my... more

I'm also looking forward to be off from work for 4 weeks, doesnt matter if I will he in pain or not..at least I will be in pain watching Netflix all day. I have 5 kids and my belly has taken a beaten. Also with gastric bypass I've lost about 80 lbs.
I had my first baby at 44 years old. After having my baby via c-section, I had severe abdominal muscle separation (diastasis recti). I still looked 4 months pregnant even after I had lost all the baby weight. I was told by a nurse practitioner to just accept that I was not going to look like I did before pregnancy (flat stomach). I cried and went to see my plastic surgeon, Dr. Rockmore. I... more
Dr. Barach is the greatest. I am so excited with the results and they keep getting better as I heal. I have had no why did I do this moments. I had two procedures. Tummy tuck and breast implants at the same time. My tummy tuck was sort of one sided since I had had an accident 2years ago and several surgeries. Dr Barach was able to make my stomach flat and matching on both sides.
I am a 32 year old female. I have two kids. I had liposuction of my abdomen back in 2011 and wasn't totally satisfied with my results so I went back in for my free touch up. I regret going back for a touch because, I ended up with skin wrinkling and indentations. I went back to that Dr. for revision for a small fee.the dr. Did some more lipo with fat grafting. The revision did not help much at... more
I was referred to Doctor K by some friends at work. I was very hesitant in the beginning; wasn't sure if I could afford it. I finally decided to check him and the surgery out. When I went for my first appointment he made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I discovered that the price was very affordable and there were payment plans that fit my budget. My boyfriend went with me to my... more
Dr. Rockmore has performed numerous procedures for me, from Botox, to breast augmentation, lip injection and a tummy tuck. He is incredibly knowledgable and very patient. I have gone to another plastic surgeon years ago, and truly nothing compares to Dr. Rockmore's results and I am extremely picky.
I am a 37 year old mother of three and due to his expertise, he has try enabled me to feel... more
After having three pregnancies my stomach had taken quite a beating. No amount of exercise would help and after a long time of considering I finally decided to do it. It was the best thing I could of done for myself and I wish I had done it sooner!! I have so much more self confidence and I physically and mentally feel better! more
The countdown begins, on January 8th I'll be having a tummy tuck done after contemplating it since the birth of my daughter 7 years ago. Luckily, I didn't because I went on to have our son almost 3 years ago. Now that my family is complete, it's time! I had two c-sections due to the weight of my babies both 10+ pounds. Prior to pregnancy, I loved my body! I always had beautiful abs and quite... more
I am 26 years old and a mother of one 1 year old daughter. Prior to getting pregnant, I lost a lot of weight - at my heaviest, about 210 and my lowest before getting pregnant was 150. While pregnant I went up to about 185 and it was mainly in my stomach, from behind I barely looked pregnant. I had a C-section in October 2012 and healed wonderfully- the scar is hardly visible and my recovery... more
Hello! This is my first entry reviewing my recent procedure. I wanted to put my recovery process online because prior to my surgery I found there was not a lot of information out there about recovery from a tummy tuck without muscle repair or liposuction.
I'm 38 years old and have had two children via C-section. I recovered easily from my first and bounced back. Even though I didn't... more
The whole procedure went amazing but i ended up in the hospital due to complications nothing to do with my tummy tuck just being allergic to different things. when i was in the hospital Rockmore came to visit me in the hospital and was very tentative. also his staff is amazing, they are very caring and honest with you. i was in a great deal of pain but it went away each day and at the end... more
I had a tummy tuck with Dr Michaels. The whole process was really easy, I felt comfortable with him, and I went from pre-op to table in less than two weeks (my choice.) everyone was very kind and I felt supported. Recovery was very manageable with a pain pump/ I did not take pain killers. There was no compression garment as I did not have lipo done, just plication and excise of skin. The... more
After almost a year of checking out this site I finally decided to join. Reading everyone's experience and seeing their results really helped me with my decision. I have three children ages 14, 3 and 2 and all were natural births. It wasn't till my two little ones that I saw a dramatic change in my body. I guess the fact that they are a year and a week apart didn't give my body the chance to... more
When I first went to Dr. Rockmore, we discussed all of my problem "areas." I had lost a fairly large amount of weight and had extra skin at my inner thighs, arms, and stomach area. Dr. Rockmore informed me of how he could help me with all of them. He said something to me that NO ONE has ever said to me before. He said, "You know you are actually a skinny person once we get rid of all of this... more
I'm 40 years old and I'm getting a hernia repair, tummy tuck, muscle repair and lip in exactly a week from today. I also hope they will remove a lot of scar tissue from a previous surgery I had 13 years ago. I posted a couple of other times about how my PS is not requiring any pre-op tests for me which really had me concerned. But after speaking with him Friday, I learned that many hospitals... more
I never thought this day would come, now it's very near and it's happening. I'm overly excited. I had my pre-op done 2 weeks ago and I'm all clear medically.
Today, I started taking my pre-op medication Arnica. The prescribed medication such as pain medication, antinausea and antibiotics are all filled up. I'm all ready for Thursday. more
