Okay, I have been wanting a tummy tuck for years! I have had three children,two of which are twins. My stomach had upper and lower abdominal fat. My youngest, the twins,turned 18 this year and I felt it was time to focus on ME. So at the end of April, I took the plunge and had a full Tummy Tuck with muscle repair and Lipo of the hips/flank area.
My plastic surgeon was WONDERFUL. I feel 100% trust. From the very first appointment he listened to my needs and he took time to discuss every aspect of the surgery as well as what to expect during my recovery. He also gave me tips, to avoid skin rash following surgery due to wearing the compression garment.
I am currently three weeks post op, and even though I still have some residual swelling, thanks to his skillful hands, I look and feel GREAT!
I highly recommend my Dr. He not only met my expectations but he exceeded them! From the very first visit, I felt totally at ease with him. His compassion and down to earth manner, imemdiately put me at ease. His willingness to listen to me, I never felt rushed at his office. I also loved the fact, that I wasn't shuffled from room to room. I stayed in the same room for the entire consult.I really appreciated that. I had been to several other well known practices, and felt somewhat of a cow being led to slaughter, with all the different rooms. This may put others at ease, but not me. I preferred Dr. S's approach. I was put at ease as soon as I walked in the door. ( Thank you, Dr!) He talked to me in great detail about the the in's and out's of the surgery. I left that first day more educated than when I walked in, which gave me a great sense of confidence as I was deciding whether to forge ahead with the surgery. He also shared invaluable tips on recovery...such as wearing a t-shirt under my binder to avoid skin abrasion from the compression binder.(I can not express how invaluable this info would become to me post surgery.) Dr. S said his goal was to give every patient a thin pencil line scar and a lovely waistline. True to word, this is exactly what he did. I have a low thin pencil line scar! He also called me the first night home and he was always available at the office or via email. (which I found invaluable, as I had some questions, after office hours.) I am so grateful, that I found him. If you live anywhere near the Orlando area, please go see him for a consult.... You will be so thankful that you did!
