I'm going to see Dr.Ahmadi in Sugarland,Tx. Friday the 19th and I'm excited to see what he tells me. He gets great reviews and is the best at this procedure I'm also considering a BL . I may use him but not sure yet because it would be covered under my insurance and I know it can be pretty pricey. Come on Friday!
Saw Dr. Ahmadi yesterday and the plan is now to do the Lipotuck and extend the... more
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
I had been struggling with excess fat for years and I always told myself I wouldn't have surgery done. As the years went on I thought to myself for once I deserve something. After my kids my life change and everything I did was for my kids. Well I did something for myself for a change and went ahead and had a tummy tuck done. I am so happy I went through with it. I struggled for so many years... more
I'm due for surgery in 5days. I'm very excited and can't wait to see my results. I done a lot of research on other doctors, until I came across Dr. Atun one of my co- workers had work done from him & she looks amazing 2yrs later. I was a little nervous about the procedure cause I never been put under. But I prayed about it, and now I can't wait. I'll keep u posted with the new look in the 3wks. 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 losing over 200lbs I still didn't have the body I expected. I was left with a lot of excess skin hanging on my body. When i looked in the mirror I still saw the 420 body i started with. I was also getting rashes under my stomach from the skin rubbing against itself.. I went to see my primary care Dr and was referred to Dr Malik Kutty about the skin removal. After my first consultation... 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

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

Natalie took care of me and clicked with me very well and Ms. Nancy was able... more
Hello RS ers, I am having my second TT Consult this week with Dr. Azul Jaffer in Sugarland whom has a great bedside manner so far However, I was just wondering if anyone on here has had the procedure done with him and can you share your experience and did you get the results you were expecting. Will keep you posted 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
