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
I was referred by another doctor to Dr. Rumalla and he has been amazing. I lost 200lbs and had a significant amount of skin to remove on my stomach and arms as well as a breast lift. His bed side manner is top notch. On the very first visit we had an open conversation regarding my want to have children later and chose the best path for me. I have already referred him to others. He is... 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 pre-op... more

I guess my story sounds like most of the Mothers on this site. I am 30 years old, I have had 3 children and I breastfed each of them for at least a year a piece. I am 5' 7" and I weigh 171. 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
I wanted to start off by saying that writing this review pains me because I really like Dr. Ethridge as a person. It still doesn't take away from the fact that I feel I was botched. I had waited many years to get this procedure done because I was fearful that something like this could happen. When I finally decided I didn't want to live with all this extra skin on my stomach anymore I took... 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
About 12 years ago I was constantly sick and when I wasn't sick I was exhausted not a "normal 20 year old". After several months of doctors testing me for this that and the other I finally diagnosed with Celiac Sprue Disease, which means I am allergic to gluten! Finally! It all made sense! We also realized that I was severely malnourished. I went from 110 lbs to 150 in just 3 months do to the... more
Depues de mi primer bebe (ya 16 anos), suvi mucho de peso. Durante mi embarazo suvi aproximadamente 76 libras, el cual cambio mi cuerpo por completo. Mi piel quedo muy flácida y yo muy infeliz. Decidí cambiar mi cuerpo y por eso e decidido hacerme una extendida abdominoplastia y liposuccion. En menos de 30 días mi cuerpo cambiara. Depues de buscar tanto por fin e encontrado el doctor que... more
This has been, and still is a procedure that I've been struggling with...in terms of to do or not to do...or wait for a better time to do. Last year I underwent a breast lift and augmentation and I remember having some reservations about it, but nothing like I'm having this round. I was stressed then about how I would care for my girls, and who would have to fill my shoes in tending to their... more

Since 4 procedures done at same time recovery was 6 weeks. Dr. Trovato in Dallas,TX was my surgeon. Now waiting for breast lift & agmentation next month.
Here are some before and after pictures. I have... 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
Wanted a tummy tuck for 26 years! Finally decided that now it's my turn to do something for me. I had consulted with 4 prominent plastic surgeons and decided to ask Dr Kiran Polavarapu to do my procedure. Of course I did research on all the physicians that I had consulted with and they all are very capable. Personally I liked the thought of having a female for this cosmetic surgery. Just my... more
After being overweight my entire adult life @ age 41 I got healthy. With exercise and healthy eating I was able to take off 80lbs of fat but my skin couldn't rebound. Thanks to the great work of Dr. Camp my abs are able to shine through. My tummy tuck was painful I will not lie. But, I would do it again in a heart beat. Dr. Camp and his staff are wonderful. They made me very comfortable and... 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.
As an overweight teenager who matured early, I have always had a flabby belly and large breasts. After losing 50 pounds when I was 20 I was left with granny boobs and wanted a breast reduction. Instead, husband... more
