Had my official consultation and pre op today....wow can't even believe it. Swan Center staff was great. Dr. F was very nice and willing to answer all my questions. Trust me I had a list of over 45 questions at hand & honestly most if the question he answered before I could even ask.

2 day post op and I was feeling terrible. To the point I had to call the answering service, the paged Dr. F and he called back in less 5 minutes. After I described my symptoms he knew exactly what was wrong. I followed his instruction and was feeling much better within the hour. I was blown away with my PS, definitely he is a dedicated professional. So far my experience been great !

8 weeks post op. dealing with swelling at the end of day. liposuction area still hurts...cant wait to feel better.

it's definitely been a journey of up and downs...1st things 1st you need to be mentally strong and TRUST your surgeon and their staff; otherwise, you'll be a emotional mess. Tummy Tucks are not for wimps, is not an easy surgery and this is why:

1. pain- is real and it will take time before it goes away; however, liposuction is more painful and uncomfortable than a tt itself.

2. you need help for the 1st 2 weeks don't let anyone tell you otherwise, specially if you have kids, pets, etc.

3.you will NOT loose 20lbs from a tt. You will see DRASTIC changes to the contour of your body

4. slow, slow recovery at 8 weeks I'm starting to see drastic changes, your body is not fully recover, listen to your body

2 years later outstanding results

2 years later my results are outstanding. My stomach is flat as it could be. Also the scar looks very light and compared to others I've seen it makes me feel good about my decision to have chosen Dr. Fardo. I can completely hide the scar even when a I wear string bikini, very impressive!! Dr. Fardo's experience and skills made difference on my results.

Atlanta Plastic Surgeon

Swan Center Staff was great, extremely friendly knowledgeable and they far exceed my expectations. I’m very happy with how they handle the process from start to finish; patient coordinators were great, during my consultation Dr. F and his nurse answered all my questions, pre-op nurse was professional, and finally surgery day was a breeze. A board certified anesthesiologists was at my side during the procedure. The one opportunity was the wait time it took approximate 45 minutes wait on consultation and surgery day. I will post pictures soon.
