Dr. Ortegon was the first doctor I consulted with. Stripping down & being photographed taking was scary, but the nurse was sweet & wonderful. Dr. Ortegon took his time with me & was supportive & informative. The coordinator was rude & told me that I didn't need the surgery I came in for, so she gave me a discounted quote for the surgery SHE wanted me to have. To add insult to injury, she said... more
I never thought I could look sexy again. I first met with Dr. Lawton May 2014 for a free consultation where he went into detail explaining his recommendations and procedures. I wanted a full mommy make over to include A tummy tuck, breast lift, breast aug and lipo. He recommended a TT and Breast Lift only and that if I still wanted the augmentation I could have it done 6 months after the lift... more

Hello Everyone!I've been a lurker for a while and have never posted until now. Reading everyone's journey was so helpful to me so I thought I'd share mine. My story is quite the same as everyone else. I had a couple of kids, my body was destroyed, and yada yada yada, here I am sitting on the couch recovering from a mommy makeover. I had a breast lift, tummy tuck with muscle repair and lipo... more
At first I was apprehensive about getting a mommie-make-up (not because of the cost/but because of the recovery) – and the more research I did and the assurance I got from Dr. Barone it was by far the best decision I made for myself!
It’s nice to go to a MD that shares all surgery details (of what to expect), the recovery time, and the real time outreaches/appointments she provides.
Three babies, one c-section, breast feeding and small chested. I was in need of a fresh start! I was happy that I was able to loose most of my baby weight but so unhappy with my now droopy, smaller than ever chest.... Not to mention the flabby belly I couldn't get rid of! Well, I'm two weeks out and can see soo much improvement already. I have a way to go, but it was and still is worth it. I... more
New to site but love seeing everyone's reviews. They are encouraging! Needing positive words and encouragement. I have been wanting a breast lift/reduction for about 10 years but always find a way to talk myself out of it. Tummy tuck needed due to excess skin. Thank The Lord for PS's and their gifted hands/eye. more
I have four children and three of them were C-sections. After a Hysterectomy.. I had a lot of scar tissue built up. I could see the lump of scar tissue through my clothes. I would also get so bloated that I would look six months pregnant because of all of the extra skin. Went for a consult with Dr. Decherd and decided to do a tummy tuck and add in my boobs. They were going a whole new... more

Hi, I'm new to this. Let me start by saying I am 40 years old. I have four children. I have been lots of research, and wondering if I'm making the right decision due to the cost of the surgery.

I'm a 40 year old mom with a saggy 36C. Much of my life I was a small B. As I've gained weight over the years I've become an even more saggy C. I'm finally in a position that I can afford getting a couple of surgeries :) I will be posting under tummy tuck as well.
I wanted to add to my initial review. I am hoping to be no less than a DD cup but not alot over that. I so wish we could... more

I'm a mom of three children, a 10 year old & twin 5 year olds. I'm 42, 5'2 and 115lbs. Being petite and breatfeeding my first child did take a toll on my body but it wasn't until having the twins at 37 that my bikini days were gone for good. I used to weigh 100lbs and wore a size zero until my 20's when the weight started to creep up. Darn that metabolism! I was able to... more
