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
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
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
I used Dr. Michael Workman in Vancouver, WA for a breast augmentation and at the time he also moved my nipples up, and a full tummy tuck. After the swelling went down in my breasts, and the stitches were removed, I noticed that the scares around my aureola looked like the outskirts of an over easy egg. Dr. Workman did not cut them and sew them together in a circle like aureola's should... more
Thanks to this forum, I have realized I am normal!! Much like everyone posting on here, I want to return my body to pre-baby pre-weight gain body-with realistic expectations. I am 42, 5'2", 158lbs mom and wife. I have lost about 30 lbs in about a year and kept it off, and 20 lbs several years before that. I have an hour glass shape which I appreciate except now I have some problem areas... more
So happy I found this website! It has been great to read everyone's experiences! Which has helped and also made me more nervous and excited! ;) I've wanted to get my stomach fixed for so long. I have two kiddos who are now 8 and 5. I have my surgery scheduled for 10/16. I'll be getting a mini tummy tuck, I don't have a lot of fat to remove, just stretched out muscles! I'm also having my... more
I had my first 9lb baby when I was 18. I had 3 more before I was 30 and all were 9lbers. I have a short torso. Since the birth of my first child my stomach has been hidden and a constant embarrassment to me. I have lost and gained over the last 35 years. The most I've ever weighed is 185. I'm 5' 4" and 52 years old. I've dreamed of having my body fixed for over 30 years. I never thought it... more
As a mom of 4, I tried all the exercising and weightloss methods I and my trainer knew of. Dr. Burgess told me I would never be able to loose the extra skin I was carring around. I have always been generous in the breast and a reduction would aleviate my migraine headaches. The procedures happened at different times the Tummy tuck first, followed by the breast reduction 3 months later. Dr.... more
Let's see I am in my mid forties and decided to get a overhaul..... TT breast lift and implants. I had a child at 20 whose weight was close to 10 lbs I'm 5'4 and was 130lbs I gained 60 lbs and didn't lose it until about 8 years ago when I lost 40 lbs and didn't look back. Now well, I look deflated and want to feel good about how I look without clothing also I will be honest the age thing is... more
Hey ladies! I am scheduled for a "mommy makeover" on Oct. 4th and the sad part is that I have never had kids. I have been obese my whole life and about 6 years ago I went from 232 to 190, then gained back up to 215 and then 2 years ago I got serious about my health and now weigh 155 with lots of excess skin. I never had breasts despite being fat, all of my weight was mostly concentrated in my... more
