I started scoping out procedures on this site a couple years ago. After going to a couple lypo consultations i realized that lypo would help but probably not make my tummy look the way I wanted.
I had my first child at 22 via Csection, with the next two at 25 & 29 I had VBACs. Luckily stretch marks don't run in my family but after each child my tummy just got more and more lax. :( i am tall... more
Hello, my name is Eliza. I gave birth to 2 girls. I had my first daughter in 2009 and my second daughter in 2011. Since I had my daughters, my belly has been loose. Prior to having children, I maintained my weight to about 150 pounds. After having children, I reached 180 pounds. I managed to loose 25 pounds. My current weight is about 152 pounds. The excess skin really bothers me and I can't... more
I am so thankful to have found Dr.Min. I have had 3 pregnancies and each did a great deal of damage to my abdomen. I had huge separation of my muscles and an incredibly large hernia. My hernia was so large that I looked 6 months pregnant and was asked often about "the baby" it was humiliating and emotionally painful considering my 3rd baby did not survive.
I went to see other general... more
I lost 80lbs on my own over the last yr and a half. It left my body looking worse than when I was heavy. I can hardly stand to look at myself without my clothes on. Surgery was something I never considered, thinking it was too expensive. I am a single mom, and it just felt selfish. One day I joked with a friend about a mommy makeover. She suggested I do it. I was kinda shocked that she was... more
I had first met with Dr Baxter approximately 10 yrs. ago to fix a vertical c section scar and some liposuction. At that time he has recommended a tummy tuck however I was unwilling to commit.
October of last year I began to reconsider and scheduled my consultation. Dr Baxter remembered my visit 10yrs previously and welcomed me back. He spent a lot of time explaining how he was going to make me... more
I have always been a fit person but after having my three children and one being a C- section , no matter how hard I worked out I couldn't get rid of my belly. I have always been self conscience about it. I started researching and found that Dr. Salemy came highly recommended and wow he did not disappoint. What a great experience and so thankful he gave me my confidence back. I'm still shocked... more
Ok let's try this again. Just wrote a small novel after getting the error message from RS that my review wasn't long enough and then losing the entire thing when I tried to repost. After 3 kids (oldest in college) and hating my tummy for the past 10 years I decided to have a consultation. Tummy tuck never even entered my mind as I thought that was something only done to very overweight people... more
Dr. Dry was so wonderful and all the staff including Nichole, Shana and Jessica. I've been wanting to make some major headway in my quest to feel better about myself and fit into some cute outfits. I was scared at first and even more scared after watching youtube. It was helpful if you want to see the worse cases; the staff at Athenix assured me that most the video logs were extreme cases. I... more
In January, 2014 I went to see my doctor for my annual checkup. I was so proud - I had lost over 50 pounds in the last year. I felt great. There was just one teensy thing that bothered me - the bulge around my middle that no amount of sit-ups and salads could get rid of. I asked my doctor to talk me out of a tummy tuck. "Well," she said "my patients who get them are really happy. And... more
I gained 50 lbs during my twins pregnancy. I lost most of the weight after a year of delivery but left with a bunch of stretch marks and loose skin on my lower abdominal. I slowly gained some weight back, as much as 30 lbs from my lightest weight in my 20s. Eighteen months ago, I started working out regularly with a trainer and watched everything I ate. I lost a little over 20lbs and... more
I have always been embarrassed about my lower abdomen after having a c-section 21 yrs ago. After hard work outs and changing my eating habits I still had the pooch. There was nothing I could do to rid myself of it, so after 6months research I went to Athenix and I had my tummy tuck with Dr Bullis.
Great results from a great Dr more
After losing 80 pounds the past 2 years and a total of 120 since my mid 20s the time has come to get rid of all this skin. I lost my weight through a low carb high protein life change and exercise. I’ve been spending the past year researching and planning for the right doctor to help me in the final step in my life transformation. It was important to me that the surgeon understood my needs... more
I have always been heavy. I was keenly aware of it when in second grade we were asked to fill out a worksheet detailing personal demographics such as height and weight. I remember being bashful to write my true weight (I was nearly 100lbs) and looked at the other papers to give a good ballpark healthy number. At the height of my weight problem I was a bit over 315 lbs and struggled to lose... more
Had I chosen a different plastic surgeon, I may feel differently. I can see that there are great benefits to this kind of surgery. Unfortunately I was one of the unlucky few who chose the highest rating plastic surgeon in Seattle and still had poor results. I'm out of money and out of options.

Dr. Salemy has agreed to work with me and I am thrilled. more
Dr. Stridde is very attentative to detail. He takes a lot of pride in his work and is really good at it. The deciding factor for me to go to this surgeon versus other ones I visited was his office staff....They are WONDERFUL! The whole office makes you feel comfortable and put your concerns and worries at ease. I am very happy I choose this office for my procedures. more
After only one child my stomach looked like a deflated balloon, I had lost weight however you couldn't tell. I went to A few plastic surgeons looking to get tummy tuck estimates- and after viewing many pics of bad belly buttons, and ugly scars, I wanted to make sure I had a extremely good surgeon. When I met Dr Sattler, I knew I found the right surgeon. He was able to describe what a "good... more
I love the comfy, calm, quiet, and welcome setting of Partington's office. It is easy to get to just off 520 at the Kirkland exit, heading east after the bridge. First impression was efficient friendly attention and a fair price for what I needed done. My scars needed revision and poor healing from an old injury bothered me for too long. I researched and found Dr. Partington who is delightful,... more
The big event is tomorrow morning! Just took my before pictures and it makes everything feel extra real. I have been thinking about getting a tummy tuck for years. I've always been a big believer in eating right with plenty of exercise. And with that, I love my healthy curves. However, after two large babies, my stomach muscles have been stretched apart . Unfortunately nothing but surgery can... more
I had a consult with another doctor 2 years ago, but I trusted my instincts and didn't choose him as my doctor. I procrastinated, but finally decided that I wanted a female doctor who might understand female body confidence. I lost 50 lbs. about 8 years ago. I exercise and eat right, but it wasn't enough to get rid of my "beer gut." I kept my expectations realistic, but now...... I am... more
Wanted a flat tummy. I lost a significant amount of weight but my tummy had a lot of extra skin from having children.
I was a bit nervous about the scar and from horrible stories about doctors in the past. But Dr. Salemy was the best. From the first visit for consultation he was great. He explained everything in great detail and answered all questions and concerns I had. He made me feel at... more
