I got my surgey done at the Baylor residency program. I have no complaints about my surgery right now. My incision is not painful but my MR is killing me. All I have is Tylenol 3 for pain. Also I have a muscle relaxer. I feel like I could use something stronger. I am starting to itch. Don't know if that's because anesthesia is wearing off of what.
I was told to wear my CG 24/7 for a month.... more
Dr. Hsu has been nothing short of amazing through my whole experience from start to finish. He has been on top of his communication, if I ever have a question, he is available and I get an immediate answer back, especially with my emails. He is super comforting and he sets realistic expectations. I'm a week post op and I couldn't be happier with my decision to use him as my surgeon.
I had... more
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
After 2 kids, 3 open surgeries, extra skin and loads of stretch marks, I have decided its time for a new me.... I want this so bad and have been worried about getting a fourth surgery. The previous 3 were all emergencies and I didnt have a choice but with this one beig cosmetic I am a little apprehensive and I only told my husband and 2 friends; one of which I know has had the surgery so wont... more

So here I go .I have very happy with my results so far. I realize I have a ways to go ,but I am very excited.

Looking forward to being able to. Wear a bathing suit & other clothing without having to hold my stomach in. Also looking forward to having curves. Had lipo on abs last year but ready to go all the way. Excited but nervous. Consult on yesterday & paid deposit today. Procedure in a few weeks. Stay tuned.
I've lost 5 lbs over the last 2 wks. Stopped exercising this week because I keep... 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
Excited to my surgery date of 5/5/15!!! Finally getting my tummy tuck done after wanting it for many years! Nervous and anxious as I started having kids at 17 and missed my pre baby stomach!! 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...
So I'm 3 days in of not having a cigarette. .. smoke mainly at work soooo... more
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
I personally had several surgeries that Dr Davila performed in 2011 and as of now I'm very happy with the job he did, and recently he re-did my breast augmentation because I wanted to get them to a bigger size. But if I have to get any other cosmetic surgery I will choose him again He is very professional as well his staff&, also the price is competitive. Thank You Doctor you did a great job. 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
I recently went to Dr. Vitenas for my tummy tuck procedure after researching doctors for so long. At the consultation I felt very at ease and comfortable with Dr. Vitenas and his staff, I never felt rushed and they answered all of my questions. I am now almost 9 weeks into my surgery, and my results are AMAZING!! I love my new body and picked the perfect doctor for the job!! more
I decided to have a tummy tuck after having stretch marks for 17years on my stomach just around the belly button. I had a client go thru it and she in the end liked her results so I decided to look in to it . Went a couple consultation and decided on a doctor. I was very nervous but excited about my surgeon...
Week 1 went by pretty quick ..first 3 days was miserable but after that ok..I... 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
I have had nothing but a very positive experience with Dr. Ciaravino and his staff. I did my homework as far as surgeons and am very happy with my choice. As for my surgery, it has been a life changing experience for me and I really didn't know what to expect since I am new to these types of surgeries, but after 15 years of having this huge insecurity with 10 of them being a single parent, I... 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 had surgery Feb.4th, I am exactly 3 weeks out today. I had a full tummy tuck, hernia repair with Lipo to the flanks. Surgery went great, took about 4 hours. My doctor had prescribed a anti nausea patch I put behind me ear before surgery and I believed that helped a... more
