After giving birth to 3 children in less than 2 years put my body in a state of despair. Unhappy with myself after delivering my last baby, I have been dieting and exercising for past year. Seen no significant changes since Oct. and hating my extra skin that pours over. I went for my consult a few weeks ago. Together we decided to have a breast lift with 400cc mentor gel implants, and an... more
Now that I'm doing having children I'm excited to get my body back. I have just finished losing the weight I have gained. My breast have shrunk a lot! I'm going to be getting silicon gel, I believe 375cc which will put me at a full C. I don't care about stretch marks but I'm looking forward to getting rid of the saggy wrinkly skin on my lower stomach. I go back 2/19 for my pre surgical consult... more
Dr. Franckle performed what some refer to as a 'mommy makeover' for me this past December. I had breast implants placed, a lift, flank lipo, mini tummy tuck, and an umbilicoplasty. This is something I considered for years and am so glad I finally went through the with it. I felt welcomed and calm from the moment I spoke with Angel, who remained helpful throughout the entire process. Dr... more
In Jan 2014 I went for my consultation for a mommy makeover (tummy tuck, liposuction of the flanks and breast reduction). I was laid off in February and had to put the surgery on hold...now that I'm back to work I've scheduled my surgery for Jan 30, 2015.
I am very excited and started exercising, just some cardio a few days a week. I've been under sedation before and I guess what makes me... more
So, I'm 28. I have a 7 year old boy. He made my life wonderful, and trashed my body. Well.... I guess I did that on my own, really :)
I spent my entire life thinking I was fat. I've always had dramatic fluctuations in weight. Looking back on pictures now, I realize I probably maxed out at a size 12. (With the exception, of course, of the time I got pregnant and gained 110 pounds).
O my I can't believe I did it. I wanted to have this surgery since I had my first child and saw my stomach after all was said and done. So I did it I had my surgery 4 days ago. I am still in pain, but praying that the outcome will be worth all the hard work.
I went in at 6:45am, very scared and nervous. My PS walked me through what I was get ready to experience. I said my prayers, kissed my... more
Hello! I'm 38 years old, married with two kids who were both large babies. I was a fat kid and have see-sawed in weight +/- 20 lbs since I was 13. After my second child turned two I started working out and fell in love with it.
I would love to lose 15 lbs but I haven't had the willpower to be on a strict diet. I work out intensely 3-4 x a week each session for 90-120 minutes but will never... more
Sooooo.....I decided to get a mommy makeover at 45. I have one child who is going to be 22 next month and I am tired of looking this way. My heaviest weight was 220 lbs and lost 50 with gastric bypass. I always thought the surgery created my stomach indentation because the surgery was done via laparoscopic. I realized a TT was the only way to correct it. During the consultation, I was... more
For almost 8 years, I had slowly put on weight, was always tired and never felt right. I was diagnosed with depression but no medication made me feel better. Finally, about 4 years ago they realized my thyroid was shot and as a result my hormones were out of wack. Now, I feel great but haven't been able to lose more than 30 pounds of the 80 I gained. My stomach looks like I am 8 months... more
Still deciding on a surgeon and exactly what to do. Definitely need a Breast lift, replacement or removal of 14 yr old saline implants (that's what I am questioning, do I replace or just lift and be done with plants?), Tummy tuck with hernia repair as well as rectus diastasis repair, and liposuction to the outer thighs. more
I am a mom to 3 grown children and nursed each one.
I have always carried weight in my belly...like my momma. I spent many years after the birth of my 3 children around 170#'s but the last 6 yrs closer to 140#. I am 5'5 and work out 4-6x a week. I live a very active lifestyle and intend to continue for many more years.
I had upper/lower abd, flank and back lipo in 2011. I love the results... more
Had my MM this morning. I got 600cc 4 months ago and wished I had gotten a tummy tuck at the same time. So I decided to get the tummy tuck and upgrade my implants in the process.
My 600s were pretty much perfect but I wanted them bigger, so I got 800s silicone. I figured, I might as well upgrade since I'm going to go under anyways for the tummy tuck.
My absolutely amazing PS only charged me... more
I have talked about doing this since for years, even had an appointment a year and a half ago, and let this little thing called "life" allow me to push the procedure and this nagging voice in my head, that actually wants to think about doing something for myself, to the wayside. The voice persisted every single time I wear a bathing suit (or more likely avoid wearing a bathing suit, I can't... more
I am getting the first portion of the procedure done on April 23, 2014. I will be getting a breast lift with augmentation and the second half will be done in September when I will have the rest of the winter to heal. After having twins my stomach was stretched to the point that it caused severe stretch marks. And as a young girl I developed quite early and quickly and my breasts have always... more

I hear that the BA causes a lot of pressure. Can anyone explain/describe what I should expect to feel when I wake? I am doing a Mommy Makeover with TT and BA? Also, I am 5'5" about 160. Hoping to lose 10 more lbs before the procedure but probably won't get there. I am trying to figure the right size for the BA? I am small and don't want to go too large but also don't want to go too large. I... more

I have run several marathons, done 3 half ironmans and rode several centuries (100 mile bike). You think I would would look like a hard body right? Nope.

I'm so excited to finally write this review! I planned to get my mommy makeover in 2010 (after 7 children I figured I deserved it) but ...SURPRISE...I found out I was pregnant...with TWINS!
