I am a 45 yr African American woman - Tummy Tuck - Bethesda, MD

I am a 45 yr African American woman and my tummy...

I am a 45 yr African American woman and my tummy was the age of a 100 yr old woman and I wanted to do plastic surgery for years but was a little scared. I finally decided last July 2012 to set up a consultation with Dr. Michael Joseph in Bethesda, MD and after speaking with him I decided to do my tummy tuck because he was very gentle, laid back and listened to my are of concerns so it felt like I had know him for years. I immediately set up my tummy tuck that very same week. The procedure went well and I was in only in hospital overnight and was released the next day. Dr. Michael even arranged for in home nurse to come to my home for 3 days to take care of my wound. I also had follow up with Dr. Michaels in his office to ensure that I was doing out and then regular follows as well monitoring my health and outcome of my procedure. He uses this special type of glue which is very awesome because my wounds were healed in less than a month and I absolutely pain free and went back to work the following week so I was absent from work for only 3 days which was great because I am an active person and like keeping busy. The folks at Inova Hospital that I did the procedure were very friendly, kind and attentive to me. I love Dr. Michaels and have referred friends and family to him. I am truly glad the day I met him because I have no regrets and he did an exceptional job on me because my stomach look like like the body of a teenager and I was finally able go to the beach in a 2 piece bathing suit. Dr. Michaels is an excellent plastic surgeon and you should check him out.
