I am 26 years old with two young children. I am 5'5 and 116lbs. Though I am very healthy and maintain a good diet and exercise routine, the effect of two pregnancies and nursing both of my kids for almost two years each really took a toll on my body. I have debated having plastic surgery for a while as a means to address the things I dislike about myself. Overall, I tend to take a more... more

I am a mama of five year old twin boys that I carried until 35 weeks, delivered naturally, and then breastfed for a year and a half. I actually didn't gain weight during my pregnancy, I maintained my highest weight of 230lbs at 5'8". I lost maybe 15 lbs after delivery and then in the following years(and following divorce) gained it back. Over the past two years I have gotten down to 190 and... more
I am a 37 year old mother of 6 year old twins and one 4 year old. I enjoy chasing my kiddos, running, and hiking. I was leery about having surgery because I did not want to be laid up. The decision to do this surgery was 100% the best decision.
I feel confident and happy with the results. Dr. Allen Gabriel is a fantastic and skilled surgeon. He guided me through both surgeries. ... more

Dr Gorin is amazing start to finish. He was the only surgeon I even called and I was sold by his before/afters before then. Him and his staff are incredible in explaining the whole process and took great care of me in surgery! I am 8 days post op and have had no issues this far. He has answered every call and email in a timely manner as well. more
Hello! I first want to say that I love this site and have fully stalked it. Could not show more appreciation for everyone sharing their story! Here is mine.......
Ok, not sure where to start but I have been heavy all my life. When I got pregnant with my first child I weighed 230. After my second child, and almost two combined years of breastfeeding I am desperate for hope. Over the last 5... more
After 2 kids and hours and hours in the gym trying to get the tummy I wanted I decided to do this. The boobs were an added bonus I had no idea I wanted so much until I got them! What I loved most about my experience was that Dr. Gabriel tried to talk me out of my tummy tuck saying I had a "beautiful belly". At that moment I knew that all the hours in the gym had paid off but I wanted a... more
I'm nervous, excited, and overwhelmed about my upcoming procedure. The TT is a no brainier, but I'm really nervous about the BA! Choosing the right size has me totally freaked out. My biggest fear is that they will be too big and I don't want to have any regrets when all is said and done. I'm so worried about not liking the results.
I haven't worn a bikinI in YEARS, and I'm not sure I will... more
Let me start by how absolutely thrilled I am with my surgical results. I went in for a Mommy Makeover consult where I knew I wanted the abdominoplasty with liposuction and breast lift with augmentation. I was super nervous to go in for my initial consult, but everyone in his office was so kind and put me at ease the entire time. I was laughing and joking (while naked) during my pre-op photos.... more
I am 5'5" weighing 140 lbs. I have been married 16 years and have two beautiful babies now 10 & 11 years old. Unfortunately when I got pregnant I was very overweight and at my heaviest was 224 lbs. After delivery two babies, one via c-section, my body has taken quite a hit. Dreams of wearing a bikini seemed impossible. Then at age 28 I was diagnosed it's a Rheumatoid Artheritis and Fibro which... more
Pros: Experience, my hot bod, pain was completely manageable, office provides all you need for a successful procedure and at home care, super low tummy tuck incision
Cons: Lipo pain was more than expected but totally worth it
I was on the fence about getting implants with my breast lift but doc reassured me about all my concerns. Dr. Gorin was always available to answer any and all... more
After having two children and losing a significant amount of weight, my skin in my stomach and breast sagged a lot. After going for a couple of consults, I am so thankful I choose to use Dr.Gabriel. From my first consult and through all of my follow-up appointments, he and his staff have been amazing. Everyone was extremely respectful of my wishes on breast sizes and helped me make a great... more
I had lost over 200lbs and had alot of skin that needed to be removed so after much consideration and discussion with my husband I called and made a appointment with Dr. Gabriel for a consultation, I was very nervous about him seeing my body but after sitting in his office with him and discussing what I was wanting to do and what to expect I felt like I'd known him forever he made me feel so... more
Hello ladies (and gents). First and foremost I want to thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart for all of the information-good, bad and ugly- that you've provided for me and everyone else on here.
With that said, I guess I should introduce myself. I'm almost 34 years old, I'm married, and I'm a mom of two beautiful and healthy kids. My daughter is almost 10, and my son is 6. I have been... more
After gaining 100 pounds with each of my pregnancies I was left with sagging breasts and stomach. My muscles had separated, and there was nothing that could be done outside of surgery.
I chose to go with a Mommy Makeover (bl, ba, tt, lipo). It was worth every dime, and I would do it all over again. Pain was very manageable, and I am the biggest baby. Worse part for me was hanging on to the... more
This is the first time I have posted, a little nervous, but here we go. I had my two kids back to back, and breast fed both. With that said my tummy and boobies took a beating.
I have been contemplating getting a mommy makeover for over a year, and finally decided to take the plunge.
Tomorrow is the big day, getting a TT with silicon breast implants. Getting anxious, nervouse and... more
I became a mommy at the age of 14 and I have never once enjoyed a bikini because I went from a child to a mommy. I've always dreamt about fixing my body and I figured, why not make this a reality? I graduated high school early and went on to graduate the nursing program. I'm ready to reward myself! :)

This has been something I have wanted for over 8 years. I am a single mother to 3 children 16, 13 and 6 and not to mention I held onto 91 additional pounds after the pregnancies. It took me 3 years to loose it with motivation from a separation and after 8 years of working hard to maintain it's time! I'm excited and ready to take care of Me. Money will come and go but loving yourself is... more
I've been a lurker for a coupe of months now, but figured since I cleaned to mirror to take pics, I ought to introduce myself and post them. I, like many I see on here, have the 'mom droop'; The life sucked from our body after having children leaving puddles of skin in the aftermath.
I've never been 'small' and have struggled with self image (and still do) my whole life. I... more
