I was originally going to do a laparoscopic or DaVinci hysterectomy, but after reading about the possible complications (and really not wanting anything pulled down through my V!!) and knowing that I have some large fibroids anyway, I decided to go ahead and do the open procedure, and have a TT at the same time. My surgery is scheduled at the end of January, and I am still shopping for a... more

My first birth left me with a loose, saggy, and quite disfigured looking abdomen. For 15 yrs I had a low self-esteem and hated the way I looked in the nude and clothed. 3 children later I decided to treat myself to Sx. It was very worth it, it looks great S/P 6wks later however I am still in pain. I'm assuming I'm still swollen b/c the top of my belly is full looking. For me it was important... more
I had always hated the way my stomach looked since giving birth by c-section several years ago. I decided to go forward with a tummy tuck and researched physicians in my area. My recovery was painful but when I saw the final results I was so excited!! I look like I did when I was 16!! Flat stomach and no stretch marks!! more

I have wanted a TT for more than a year now, but I had to battle with my insurnace company (which I still loss) to help pay for something. I have a 8cm diastasis and I'm at risk for a hernia. I have felt so helpless and so unattractive... more

After carful review and visiting 2 other plastic surgeons, I decided that Dr Coley was the right Surgeon to do my procedure. Im completely 100% satisfied with... more
