My tummy is just a hot mess. It started in 2003 when I had a lap band done to loose weight. That make my gallbladder take a poop, so it was removed in 2004. After loosing 65 pounds, I had major pains & found out the band erroded & perforated my stomach. Next was 2 more surgeries to sew my stomach back together & remove the band. I managed to maintain the weight for several years until I needed... more

My husband has been very... more
This review is coming years late but I recently had another procedure that prompted my review. I had a tummy tuck many years ago by Dr Widenhouse and I highly recommend him. I have had lipo in several areas since then and most recently had a lip injection and fat grating to the breast with lipo of the hips.
I've been considering having a tummy tuck every since my 4th c-section. I've been so nervous, especially after seeing some of other people horrible experiences. Found a wonderful dr who specializes in this procedure, so decided to do it! I also want an arm lift and an bbl, but 1st things 1st...lol, nervous but so ready!
