Two months ago I did a consultation via email. After viewing my pics Lucy sent me a quote of $17k for an hourglass tummy tuck, breast implants removal & breast lift (mommy makeover). Dr Cortes base fee was 13k. After dealing with the financing company I was advised that I would have to physically go in for a consult.
I traveled 4 hours to Houston...no problem. Waiter an hour and a half to see... more

Basically I am completely exhausted with this belly. I have had it to the moon and back. After three c-sections being cut two different ways my stomach looks awful, not to mention extremely heavy. I feel like I'm carrying around an extra 10lbs. I am looking forward to the flat side. I think it will enhance my appearance and boost my confidence. I'm scared yet anxious. I have a consultation... more

I will post pics after my pre op visit on 4/20/15. I am still exercising daily since I was told this helps with recovery...

You will not regret choosing Dr. Basu & his highly trained staff. During My consultation I could feel his passion for his profession. He knows exactly what it takes to sculpt a body. Dr. Basu is very knowledgeable and honest. He and his coordinator help put all fear and anxiety that I had about the procedures to rest. The quality of my care before and after surgery was great. Everyone at this... more
Dr Basu was fantastic and I'm very pleased thus far! 2 days post op, I have had some pain, but I have a very low tolerance for pain. April, Linnea, and Katherine are all so easy to work with and they go above and beyond to make the patient comfortable. The experal that is used for the muscle repair works wonders so my belly just feels like I've done a lot of sit-ups. The lipo is the most painful. more
I am so happy with my results even though I still have some swelling I already look and feel like a total different person!!!! My husband also noticed how different I looked and is also very pleased that I went to Dr. Ciaravino. The staff is wonderful and have been attentive and patient with any questions or concerns. Natalie took care of me and clicked with me very well and Ms. Nancy was able... more
Since I've had my TT, I've had several friends that had them and I have to say that I got the best results from Dr. Boutros for the TT of anyone I know. My friend also used him after seeing my results and she is happy too. I think he pulls the muscles really tight, which in the long term is best. I remember not being able to stand straight for a very long time, especially at the end of the... more

First of all let me be clear that I am not obese or even overweight. I am a 50 year old grandmother who wears a size 6 but has had a loose tummy since giving birth to my one and only daughter. I work out 5 days a week have never been able to rid myself of the saggy tummy. I remember watching the TLC series "Big Medicine" and fell in love with Dr. Lomonaco. I told myself if I ever have the... more
I have dreamed of having a tummy tuck every since the day I delivered a 10 pound baby via c-section. She left me with that dreaded c-section pooch that is so dreadful to look at. The pooch comes along with the many stretch marks as well. Being a nurse I am not one to have an elective surgery on ones that are needed medically. Back in July, I had to have a breast reduction for medical... more
After reading so many reviews and seeing pictures that have helped me, I finally figured out how to upload and write a review.

I would like to be able to wear clothes without all the scuba wear underneath! I'm a mom of three wonderful boys and a wife of an amazing husband. I finally made up my mind to have surgery. I exercise and eat right for the most part. You would think the muffin would melt away after wearing all the scuba wear underneath my clothes! Its HOT in Texas! After 3 C-sections well a flat tummy seemed... more
Disappointed that no one answered when I called....I had to leave a voice mail. I hope that doesn't happen if I decide to go with him. The research I've done so far, he seems to be more expensive than other PC's in the area.....................................................................................
I got a response email from the interest form I filled out online. The email... more
Hi! After finally getting to 200 from 336 I knew this stomach wasn't going anywhere without surgery and it was time to remove the past. I am now at 185 lbs and scheduled for my surgery next Thursday. Since seeing Dr. Jaffar I feel great about him doing the procedure. He looked in my eyes every time I spoke to him, answered every question I had and his office staff was awesome when I needed... more
I have pretty much never had a very good mid-section. Even before kids i had a tummy pooch and stretch marks on my hips and thighs. I've never been big, but i guess i just don't have very good skin elasticity. i am 5'3" and i tend to weigh around 126-130 lbs.
I decided to get a tummy tuck after having my second child, but didn't actually call and get the surgery scheduled until 3 yrs later... more
