Meet with Steven J. White, M.D. at the end of May. I work in health care, so I am always on the lookout for negative signs in a medical office. However, I am blown away by how much pre-planning Dr. White has me doing and it has helped my hubby feel comfortable too.
My surgery is this Tuesday, June 30, 2015 and I have all my prescriptions filled, educational videos watched, and just... more
After 3 c-sections, and just years of belly bulge...I was so tired of seeing the mushroom top, or making sure I change clothes facing my husband because the side profile was just too gross. Finally I went to see Dr. Kasden, this was one of the best decisions of my life. Dr. Kasden and staff are just wonderful, both honest, easy to understand and will go above and beyond to make you feel... more
So far I've had my consultation and today I had the blood work and check up done that the surgeon requires. I've lost around 80 pounds and have quite a bit of extra skin/sagginess hanging around on my stomach. It makes me very self conscious and I am so excited to have it removed. My pre-op appointment is next week (6/23) and then two weeks after that is the big day!

My goal is to get down to a goal weight of 165 making my total weight loss 50 pounds. I am looking to have a TT and maybe a breast lift (depending on cost) After lots of research I have decided I would... more
I've read from others that a seroma and/or hematoma is comment during a TT and lipo procedure. I am three weeks post and during my surgery when Dr. was suctioning out my left flank area using vaser lipo, he said I bleed a lot on that side. I am black, green, purple, yellow with a big bludging bump. It was hard at first. He packed foam around it for five days. Two weeks post op, he aspirated... more
Recently, at my son's wedding, I received so many compliments on my appearance, and I have Dr. White to thank for that. After much deliberation and poring over plastic surgeon websites and reviews, I made an appointment to see Dr. White about a tummy tuck. He spent a long time with me discussing the procedure and the results I could expect as well as answering all the questions I had. In... more

This is something I've wanted for so long but never actually pursued it. I did my research but really liked Dr. Jejurikar. The entire staff is pleasant and made me feel comfortable. Dr. J is very honest and vibes with all your wants and makes honest opinions. He exceeded my expectations and I'm not even fully heeled but in love with what I am seeing. I do plan to get two more procedures and he... more
My Pros are I look so good and feel so good about my body now. Shopping is so much fun now.. The recovery was really fast each day I felt better and better. I have my TT about 3 weeks after my consultation.
Cons: only the scare, and waiting to get in the pool,wearing the drains, and sleeping on my back for a couple weeks. more
Most definitely worth it. I waited so many years for this surgery for fear of dissapoinmrnt and regret. I was truly amazed on how caring, sweet and genuine Dr. Rumalla was before, during , and after surgery. I don't ever write reviews but this was the only way I could thank him for giving me my self confidence back. more
The date is set for 5/22/15 and I wish it were sooner! Now that I've made my mind up, I'm ready to get it started. Already had vacation planned for the end of April so have to wait.

No matter how much I exercised, ate right, etc. I couldn't get rid of it. I had been very scared to have a tummy tuck.

I finally lost some of the weight and went for the tummy tuck when my youngest was 10. During my consultation, Dr Stagnone and his nurse advised me to think about liposuction for the hips in conjunction with my TT.... more
I had actually been thinking about having this done for several years, like most of you. I had a couple friends who had the procedure that both said they would do it again in a minute - even though they recovery time was difficult for both.
