I had a tummy tuck with lipo about 4 weeks ago with Dr. Schulman. I'm still dealing with slight swelling but the change in the contour of my body this short period of time and this experience has been nothing short of life changing.

I have been contemplating the best option for my stretch marks and loose skin for a while after I realized I don't plan on having any more children.

I finally decided it was time and went on 3 consultations. I... more

After having Gastric Bypass surgery in 2013 and losing close to 140lbs regained roughly 25, I was left with a bunch of excess skin and decided this was the year to do something about it.

I had my tummy tuck in October with Dr. Marcelo Ghersi. I should never have waited till I was 40 years old to do it. It didn't make me super skinny or anything but what it did do was make everything look better. My scar looks good and is flat. It's still red but I know it's early yet. My sister had the procedure and it took more than a year to fade fully so I'm looking forward to that. ... more
