My motivation surges came every time I worked out and I had to tuck my skin back into my pants. I did some research on this site and was looking for a doctor that did not do cookie cutter tummy tucks. I found Dr. Medalie, and appreciated his variety of beautiful outcomes. Today is day 2 after surgery and the nausea is a nightmare. I am very sensitive to all meds and get sick from them easily.... more
I lost close to 50#, but no matter how much I exercised, I could not get rid of the lower abdominal "pooch". Dr. Kaufman did a fabulous tummy tuck. So happy with my results, scars are barely noticeable anymore & I feel confident about myself in and out of clothes. Would do it again in a heartbeat! more
He was the BEST Doctor. He spent plenty of time during his consult. He was so honest even when others had lied to me about what was need. I'm one day post Op and the pain is not that bad. I am so happy so far. His whole Staff is very kind and professional. Kristine was GREAT also. He is well worth it
I'm one week post op. I'm doing very well but still very swollen. I can move around and... more
After having a couple kids and a large weigh loss I had extra skin that wasn't improving much from scrubs and even CO2 laser.
Went to Dr Green and had a great experience and awesome results.
Was shocked how affordable it was and everyone made me feel so comfortable!
Was very worth it!! Saw results right away but especially after swelling went down. Scar was minimal too! more
Well seems like with everybody else I've been looking and thinking of a tummy tuck for about 5 years now. I'm still nervous and excited can't believe the Day is almost here. I've been stuck in this website for months now reading everyones reviews and looking at there before and after pics wondering what mine will look like. I hope I'm not being selfish or something happens to me I do have 2... more
I have never been more excited to get this done. My tummy is not grossly huge but its there. Looking forward to wearing a bikini n have no rolls. I' ve been really nervous about this for awhile but the more i' ve thought about it the more im sure that its what i want. I was originally schedulec for the summer but the timing was off. So now i'm ready. New Year, new me! more
I'm one week out from surgery. Praying everything went ok with preadmission testing as I found out a week prior that I am slightly anemic.
I am having surgery done thru University Hospitals plastic surgery residency program. I am very confident in my surgeons as UH is top teaching hospital. Plus my resident is 6 months away from graduation to being in his own practice so he knows what he is... more
My motivation for undergoing this procedure came from years of working out and watching my diet, trying to get rid of my problem area, which was really muscle separation and excess skin that wasn't going to go away no matter what I did. After 3 consults over 4 years with Dr. Goldman, I finally decided it was time for the surgery. Everything I was told pre-op as far as how I would feel, how... more
All I wanted was my lower abs area to be removed. It just hang over on my legs. Dieting and exercising did very little. I was embarrassed to wear shirts that came to my belt line. All my shirts had to cover up my front abs. So excited, my tummy tuck was Monday and even though I am sore I am excited.
I have no regrets. I went into this procedure with a lot of knowledge and a fantastic... more
I am 2 weeks away from getting my tummy tuck. I am very excited but very nervous about the pain. I am 41, have 2 kids and am 5'7" and weigh 148. Why is it when I read other reviews, I feel so much bigger than others who weigh more than me? I guess I don't carry weight well. Can't wait to finally get rid of this belly. I have very low self esteem because of it. I know I shouldn't,... more
I have been overweight my entire life. In May of 2013 I had the gastric sleeve surgery and have lost 120lbs. (All those scars on my belly are from my laparoscopic sleeve surgery, and then an emergency gallbladder removal six months after).
I like being plus size. My goal is to be a size 16. I am currently a size 20. However, I can get on a size 16 just fine when lifting all my extra belly... more
After having 3 kids and gaining 85 lbs each time I was left with a tummy that had me still looking pregnant. I lost all of the baby weight because I am an avid gym rat, but I could not get rid of my giant belly. Dr. Goldman changed my life in ways I can never thank him enough for. My flat stomach has made me feel whole again! more
I just turned 40 years old and have 2 young boys. I am 4'11 and weigh 123 lbs. I also recently had abdominal surgery to remove endometriosis. I eat a pretty healthy diet and stay very active, for the most part. I have never been happy with my stomach, even when I was much smaller. After much consideration, I finally scheduled lipoabdominoplasty for March 27. Although, I am excited, I am... more
Hey girls! I have been debating adding a review for awhile and thought if I could help at least one person it would be worth it. I am in my late 20s and have two children under the age of 5. I gained 100lbs between pregnancy and after childbirth and really let myself go. I started weight watchers last year and lost all 100lbs but was very unhappy with how I looked after I worked so hard. I... more
I am so nervous. I have been wanting this for quite some time and after some recent events decided it is time for me to get this done. I have had one c-section and massive weight fluctuations. I once weighed 233 lbs and now 170 with a goal of 150. I have A LOT of excess skin and want it gone so I can exercise without chunks of skin flapping.
Nervous beyond belief. I keep looking in the... more
I had a Tummy Tuck with vaser liposuction. Dr. Vanek is very professional and caring. He answered all questions and made me feel at ease with all that was being done. His staff is just as caring. I had a lot done so my recovery is longer then some but the results would have me do it again in a heartbeat. more
Im a 32 years. Married and mother of two sweet boys ( 4 and 2 ). I decided to have a full tummy tuck when we decided that we were done having children. I was very uncomfortable with my body image and needed a change- boy did I get one!! It was the best decision I have ever made! From beginning to end I never had a doubt in my mind that I wasn't doing the right thing. My results are... more
