Ever since I saw the impact on my body of the first c-section, I told my husband that I wanted to have a tummy tuck once we were done having kids. Now that my youngest child is almost four, it's time! Since the day she was born, I've lost nearly 100 pounds through changing my eating habits and exercise. Now, I work out with a trainer and run about 10 miles a week (which is amazing for me -... more
I'm looking for help with Mommy makeover or abdominoplasty depends on the price. I saw the surgery residency program, maybe you can help me. It is difficult for me to save up all the money for surgery. I know nothing is free, but I'm looking for something comfortable. It isn't easy for me to have a big stomach that didn't come back to normal after having my children. Someone who can help me... more
I'm scheduled for a mommy makeover in a few weeks! I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. I will be 35 a couple of days before my surgery. 3 kids and a 60 lb weight lost the good old fashioned way has left my body looking deflated and flabby. I can get in a size 8 comfortably right now, but everything isn't arranged the way it should be! I look terrible in anything form-fitting. ... more
I'm having tummy tuck and breast lift done. I've seen places that offer it for less money, but I felt the most comfortable with Dr. Pyle and his staff after consultation. I will post before pics tomorrow. I'm getting pretty nervous. I finally told my 12 year old daughter so that she would be aware and not shocked at the difference. She was unusually unphased. She just wanted to know if i... more
So I am freaking out!!!!!! I am scheduled to have a mini tummy tuck, lipo of my legs, and breast lift with implant one week from today. My anxiety is so high right now. I'm scared b/c I have 3 kids and afraid something might happen. Also, worried about the recovery, can anyone give me a realistic expectation? My friends recovered easily from lipo of legs and implants but this is more and I... more
I had my first son at 18 my second at 24. Boys were 9 and 8.4 lbs and both breast fed. I am a nurse and through crazy work schedules, a subsequent divorce and single mom stress, I have had many weight fluctuations over the past 16 years! In 2011, I got a second chance at love with the man I was meant to be with and life is good again!
In this past year alone I have lost 20 lbs through diet and... more

I am still in the beginning stages of trying to find a doctor. After having my second child 3 1/2 years ago and being the heaviest I have ever been...I decided that maybe I needed to do something. So I started watching what I ate (counting every calorie and then using Nutrisystem) and started working out. I am now a Pure Barre addict. And I managed to lose 25 pounds in just over 6 months. I am... more
I am so excited to be joining you ladies! I am a 29 yr old mom of two very active boys- one and three, and we lost a baby girl before they were born in the third trimester of my pregnancy (hense the 3 babies). I breast fed both boys so my breasts are deflated looking, but the surgeon said that I did not need a lift so I was kinda happy about that. I am 5'9" and currently 149 lbs (trying to... more
Since I am about to be an "empty-nester", I finally decided to do something for myself. I had 2 c-sections and have gained and lost significant weight over the past 20 years. My body needed help that diet and exercise just couldn't accomplish. My Primary Care doctor recommended Dr. Pyle based on her experience and I am so glad that she did! I absolutely love my results! more
Hi! I'm in the research process in finding a doctor for my mommy makeover in the Raleigh-Durham, Nc area! I currently live in Germany gearing up to move back to the states in the next 6 months. I'm finding it hard to get doctors to help work with me. I want to get as much as possible done through emails so it's a lot easier when I get there. I have asked to send pictures and get ideas of what... more
I consulted with 3 plastic surgeons in my area before choosing one. The first one required you to meet his nurse for a consultation (free) before a second paid consultation. It was a long drive to Raleigh and I was so discouraged after she gave me a guesstimate. I had an idea of about 15,000. I was quoted between 20-25,000. I left there and GPS'd my way to another plastic surgeon's office that... more
I want a tummy tuck and breast augmentation with a fat transfer from various parts of my body to my breasts.I am nervous and excited but also wanting to seek a lot more information about these procedures so that I know if it's worth it you know. I would like to be able to feel comfortable with the doctor that I find and also to have a doctor that is willing to listen then go through all of the... more
I got my daughter when I was 22 and this is when I lost my body, two years after I got my son and everything got even worse. I'm 29 now and I've tried everything from creams to exercises to get my body back. But no exercises will bring you your breast size back or remove stretch marks on your saggy belly... So I got depressed and very unconfident . It took me 7 years to realize that the... more
I am a 31 year old with one child who is almost 5. I have been reviewing RS for three years now considering a TT mostly. My child was 10.5 lbs and I really got horrible stretch marks. Over the years as I've lost weight, the skin has wrinkled up with the combo, I finally decided to have a consultation.
My experience with Dr. Davis and his Patient Assistant, Greta, were great. I feel 90%... more
Although I am petite and tiny, I have had a blubber belly my whole life. I am very lucky to have great genes (thanks mom!) and have always looked much younger than I am. But my beautiful mother also gave me very saggy skin. I could hide it well under my clothes so everyone always assumed I had a " cute little figure". Amazing the lies you can tell with clothes!! I always wished for a tummy... more
I am a 33 year old mom of three wonderful children...however they were not so kind on the body...yikes. I gained excessive weight (about 100 lbs) with our first kiddo. it took me 5 long years to lose all the weight. I gained 50 lbs with our second and finally 40 lbs with our youngest. Needles to say I had stretch marks, extra skin, and face it lax tummy muscles...I have always wanted a... more

I'm 29, three children. I weigh about 120lbs, and honestly -- I can't complain too much because I look really good for having three children, my belly just isn't as flat as it used to be and it likely won't be ever again, without surgery. My breasts are the thing I hate most, I'd always been small chested but after having children and nursing, they upped to a D Cup and shrank back down to a... more
