Had my first consultation with Dr Basner who was AWESOME AMAZING!!!! So let the countdown... READ MORE

I went into the office today for a consult. I thought dr mitts and his staff were professional and kind. He answered all my questions, and I didn't feel like he was rushing through anything. When we were done with the consult he shook my hand. It's so nice to see another dr in Bakersfield you... READ MORE

So here's me...Im a 30 year old female. I have always had somewhat of a weight issue but throughout high school I was very athletic, played basketball, ran track, etc. In my early 20s I experienced significant weight gain, due partially to depression partially my (not so fantastic) diet habits...

I don't see many reviews from the over 60 group, so I thought I'd chime in. I had a gastric bypass procedure 4 years ago (at age 64). I lost 100 lbs in 10 months. I have only gained 15 lbs back and I'm working to take that off. I'm on Medicare so they will only cover a panniculectomy, but... READ MORE

I am 22, 5'5" and currently weigh 164 lbs after losing 130 lbs (my starting weight was 290+ lbs). My surgery is booked for June 05 2015. It will remove the excess skin apron/pannus that hangs on my stomach. The Medical Services Plan (MSP) is covering this procedure, as it is considered a... READ MORE

I have the gastric sleeve 2/2014 which was covered by insurance so was my panniculectomy......I love my surgeon he's nice and honest. My out of pocket was abt 1400. Even though it haven't been a month and still healing I don't regret nothing. It changed my life. So far so good I don't have any... READ MORE

Tomorrow I have a consultation. I'm so excited. I'm mainly excited to have my nasty-hanging-belly-thingy photographed. (Um, no...) I'm excited to get the ball rolling. It's been 20 years since I've lost 120 pounds. Time too feel good. Time to be able to look at myself without extreme... READ MORE

I am beginning this journey at 38 years-old, try to get a tummy tuck (the fancy word actually being getting a "panniculectomy.") I can no longer stand the apron of a stomach I have in front of me. I lost half my body weight over ten years ago, I had a daughter four years ago, and this hanging... READ MORE

Been having issues with my pannus since a hysterectomy in 2012 leaving me unable to get much physical activity in. I have platued at my current weight for over a year... READ MORE

I'm so excited that I had my consultation with Dr. James Edwards from the Providence Medical Group today for a panniculectomy. He was fantastic and I look forward to working with him. He has great reviews on here. It's been a rocky road getting to this point but so happy to have made it. I... READ MORE

Less than 2 weeks before my panniluculecotmy. I'm very nervous how my results will turn out. My ps does only the lower part without billing for a full TT insurance will only cover lower. I have 3 wonderful daughters ages 19,12&3y/o. I had lapband 6yrs ago and have maintained my weight for the... READ MORE

I'm 25 years old and the mother of two girls. They are 5 and 3. I am a single mom and full time nursing student. I have struggled with my weight since I was about 10 years old. I remember yo-yo dieting all through high school. When I was 22, I knew something had to change. My maternal aunt has... READ MORE

I'm 5'2" and currently 160 and dropping. If you subtract the weight my PS wants to take off my boobs and my apron, we're actually looking at about 148 :) So far my experience has been a roller coaster and I've not even had the surgery yet! If it's all covered I know for certain that it will be... READ MORE

I have had three cute sons and have come to the realization that I have ZERO elasticity in my stomach region. It is shocking to see that I have the exact same mid section that "severe weight loss" people have! It's crazy! I was 210 in April '14 when I gave birth to my youngest son. At 5'2" that... READ MORE
