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 got the ok from work . I'm so excited to be in the... more

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 am 34 years old. I have 2 kids, 15 & 12. i weight 130 lbs. I had a microscopic hysterectomy 4 years ago (so no more chance of pregnancy) I have wanted a tummy tuck since after the birth of my second child. As you can see by my before photos i have loose wrinkly skin on my tummy. I didn't gain a lot of weight with either pregnancy, but apparently my skin isn't as resilient as others. Even... more
Wanted to do this about 2 years ago. Waited and finally bit the bullet. My weight is stable and I didn't want to continue my hamster wheel diet and exercise. It's been an emotional toll on me to try and give up. I've taken that pressure of results off of myself...now I can incorporate gradual lifestyle changes while feeling more confident. I'm new to recovery- it isn't easy and I have a long... more
I have never, ever, ever, had a flat tummy. I'm 40 with 2 kids, married for 20 years...and just don't feel good about myself. I'm successful in every other area of my life, except for my self-esteem and my fat belly. My TT is the 24th but I'm terrified. Can anyone help encourage me please. Thank you!
I was feeling ok, but still very nervous. Then, I read a horrible story on here about a... more

I thought I would be a candidate for MTT but the PS said I needed a Full TT to get the best result. I only had one consultation and I may just go with him. He is double board certified and has great review, he is easy to talk to etc.... I need to get it done by mid May before my husband's travel and the kids get out of school... if not, I'll have to wait until Sep. which I'd rather not do... more
I'm 34 and a mother of two, 17 and 14. I'm 5'2" and weigh 155, which is a bit overweight for my height. My preferred weight is around 135 but I've really let go of my diet for the past several months. I'm promising myself that I will eat better after my surgery, in keeping with the motto: "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." Lol, but seriously, diet will be an important factor in... more

I wanted to have a board-certified PS, and after several research, found Dr. Paul Gill! We met last October and after chatting with him, that was it, the... more
It has taken me a while to write this review because I don't even know where to start. I was raised in the plastic surgery industry having a plastic surgeon in the family many years ago. I felt very confident in my research to find the perfect surgeon. I am a mother of three; two of them being twins. My third came only 22 months later. My stomach was a wreck. I carried my twins to 35 weeks,... more
