Pre-op done, paid and surgery scheduled. one week away. Nervous, scared, and excited all at the same time. Been wanting this surgery for years since I knew I wasn't having more children. Husband wanst on board. Finally okayed back in July 2014 and I went to doc. Very surprised and please with estimate. Getting tummy tuck, lift (no implants because I apparently already have plenty of... more
I have had my 3 consultations and am now in the process of determining who to go with. I am worried about my recovery as we live in a beach house and getting up the stairs right after surgery will be a problem. So..... the doctors. 1) Dr. Horndeski - He is straight forward to the point and very confident in his abilities. The descriptions that I have read about him and him being an... more
Dr. Gill and his staff are fantastic!! I have lost 100 pounds and my tummy and breast went south. Dr. Gill and his expertise placed my breast back up were they are supposed to be and gave them a beautifully natural appearing enhancement. My tummy tuck was worth every penny, I have a happy belly button now. Thank you Dr. Gill for your sincere and honest opinion in my appearance and your concern... more
Wanted to make-over myself before going back to school. I'm in my forties and have had 2 kids via c-section. I first had a mom makeover in July 2013 that included a tummy tuck and breast lift/reduction. I was exceptionally pleased with the results, but wanted to have some additional lipo from my thighs to make the bottom match the results on top (that was done Dec. 2013). Last I had laser... more
I was so hesitant getting this procedure done, just because going under scared me to death. But, honestly after meeting with Dr. Rodgers and his team made me so at ease going in. The outcome of this procedure is more than I even expected and was back in the gym doing light cardio two weeks after my surgery. Best thing I've ever done. Dr. Rodgers bedside manners are so professional and so real.... more
I am interested in knowing some doctors and how to get consultations without flying all over the place as that is unrealistic for me.. I am 28 years old and have 3 beautiful girls but it's done damage to me that I am not pleased with. I work out 5 days a week but that's not helping my loose tummy skin or small Saggy boobs :( I want to feel beautiful and young again! I'm looking for a tummy... more
Hi, I just had my tummy tuck and my breast implant 6 days ago. I was scared to death. Finally, I did it and still survive. It hurt a lot and I can't straight my back. I hope next Monday, they will take off the drains. I am happy because I can see my flat belly again, can't wait until the day I get back to normal. I walk like an old lady now.lol
My breast is perfect. more
I wanted to have mommy makeover to fix the loose skin & saggy breasts after having 4 beautiful kids. I'm two days post op & will write later as I'm feeling discomfort even with meds. Painful for sure, i had four kids, vaginal births, with no pain meds at all, even my 10 lb baby, so my pain tolerance is high, however this is painful. Surgery went well, so far it has been better than I... more

I regret not getting it sooner I would've at least enjoyed it a lot longer and had skinny wedding pics!! lol! I wanted to wait... more
I am writing this review to honor those on realself that have shared their personal experiences. Their reviews filled with so much knowledge and honesty helped to guide me through this process . My desire is to pay it forward by doing the same for those that come after me that are as desperate for information as I have been. more

I wasn't comfortable with my body until I was about 22 yrs old and then 2 yrs later I gained an extreme 90 pounds with my first daughter. I lost all of the baby weight but my stomach was left with saggy, wrinkly looking skin. I describe my breast as "a sock full of quarters" - deflated and hanging. So naturally, after having my second child, and surviving the loss of a third child, I have... more
I'm ready to feel better and not have to hide behind tons of clothes. I work full time and have two kids. I just hope that everything goes smoothly and I can look and feel better. I still have some weight to lose and I'm working on it! I need some accountability so here the first picture of my nasty tummy lol!
As you can tell, I'm the perfect candidate for this procedures. I feel like a... more
So a little about me..
I am a mom of 2 kiddos, a 5 year old and a 2 1/2 year old. I gained 55 lbs with both pregnancies. Lets just say the kids did a number on my body! I have talked about having a mommy makeover since my first child was born, but in July, I decided to make it a reality. After talking to my husband about it we decided it would be well worth the money and I called and set a... more
Dr. Rodgers did a great job on my body. I've never thought I could have beautiful contours like I do now. However, those procedures don't make miracles and as soon as you are released to start your workouts go for them and never stop because your belly is flat and it won't be big any more but your butt, arms, legs and the rest of your body will and you will be unhappy again. My recovery was... more
I am very pleased with my "Mommy Makeover" results. Dr. Sugene Kim did an amazing job. She lifted my breasts without adding implants because I had plenty of tissue to work with. She is definitely an artist at her craft. She was able to make make breasts look very similar to the way they were prior to my pregnancies. (if not better) She also did a wonderful job sculpting and removing the... more
Too often I would look @ myself in the mirror and think "if only I could"....
Loose the bra fat, had smaller arms, redo my breast / tummy.... Feel comfortable in a swim suit this summer!
Well not every one can look like a "Super Model", but with the right surgeon, I might feel like one!
So I made my decision and took time for me.
I had a breast augmentation with a lift, revision... more
