I'm 27 years old & have 1 son. I gained over 100lbs during the pregnancy. I'm 5'2", 135lbs now. I got up to 220lbs when I was pregnant. So now I am looking to fix the damage I did to my body. I do have a lot of tattoos, I notice not many people on here who are getting tummy tucks have tattoos. I have come to terms with the fact that I will lose the two tattoos on my hips. But after a consult I... more
It had to be God's plan for this to happen. I had surgery before and I was never truly pleased with the results. I was looking for a new and better surgeon when someone on the airplane told me about Doctor Thomson. It took a long time to get an appointment but it was well worth the wait. The doctor explained to me in detail what was going to happen and was honest about what it would really... more
I am done having babies and ready to get my body back. My hanging skin was a problem before but is worse than ever now. I'd like to no longer have to blow dry, use powders, creams, etc to prevent sores and rashes. I'd like to wear pants that fit instead of two sizes too big because of lower hanging skin. I'm ready to see all my hard work. It is frustrating to have lost weight but still... more
Patience is key. I'm not a person who likes to sit around so the first couple weeks were rough. Thank goodness for the pain pump I came home with, it kept me comfortable. Sleeping at a 30 degree angle propped up on pillows and a pillow under my legs made a huge difference in my recovery. Do it, you'll thank me later. Recovery has had its good and rough days. Mostly good. I'm sooo happy to... more
I been waiting for a tummy tuck for 10 years. I'm in a good place where I can afford to pay for my procedure. I have the support of my husband. I was very pleased with the office staff and PS. He just did my niece tummy tuck and she was please with results. PS was out of the country and he called her twice to make sure she was doing ok.

I would highly recommend Dr. Correa and will see him again for my breast lift and possible face lift!! I feel that Dr. Correa is kind, caring and very patient. I was really impressed with the amount of time he spent with me answering my questions not only during my consultation but the... more
Had a tummy tuck on a Tuesday and out of the hospital by Wednesday, back to work by the next Wednesday! Moving slow and limited activities but off meds and drains were out and back to work at my desk job, no problem. Great doctor with impeccable bedside manner. Take the leap, I'm so happy I did.

I was always very thin; At the age of 18 I was 100 pounds right before I found out I was pregnant with my daughter (I'm very short to match - 4ft 11in) and with my first baby I gained 50 pounds! I had only managed to lose 20 pounds or more like 25 pounds after baby (she was 6lbs ONLY) by the time I found out I was pregnant with my second which I gained 30 pounds with. So after my son was born... more
Today was my consultation. I saw Dr Gill two years ago but decided it wasn't time. I'm having a hysterectomy by Dr Eads and would love a TT from Gill. Anyone who can share info about their experience especially if paired with hysterectomy I would be so grateful! I'm a bit nervous about the recovery. I know everyone is different. I'm in pretty good shape, I work out regularly but can't get rid... more

I'm a 30 yr. old, single mom of 3 beautiful daughters. Because I got pregnant at a young age, it seems like I was never able to have the slim body I should have. It was finally the time for me to give myself some TLC. I had a breast augmentation 5 yrs ago by the same doctor and was very pleased. On December 18th I returned for my tummy tuck. It's now day 11 post op and besides the drain... more

I came to Gallas after visiting several high profile Houston doctors. After visiting with Dr.Gallas and his staff I was immediately sure he was my doctor. My goal was to have a breast lift with implants and tummy tuck. After my consultation I ended up only getting implants and tummy tuck. It has been 3 weeks and I feel and look great. Their care post surgery was fantastic and my scarring is... more
I'm very skeptical of surgical procedures but after two pregnancies, I felt my body needed some help to get back to what it was.
I was only considering the tummy tuck but after the consult, I decided to go for the breast augmentation too.
The pros are getting your body back. I feel now comfortable wearing my pre - mommy clothes.
The cons, the tummy scar but I can wear a bikini that will... more
