I've have horrible excess skin and stretch marks and I'm finally getting my tummy tuck done in NY at North Cnetral Bronx hospital for a whopping 2100 bucks. My mom is a nurse and she knows the doctor and see his work all the time, so it's a win win for me. I will be back later to post pics of befores and afters. Check out my youtube TT journey.

Hi, SimoneJoan(Tasha)
I've checked out ur Youtube videos today(by accident) was looking up REAL TT videos. I must say ur surgery came out FANTASTIC. I enjoyed everyone of ur videos, so much I made an appointment with Jacobi for April and for the Price I will be more than happy to go through with it.. I looked and looked for something that wasnt as expensive. I went to one in Westchester county NY (where im from) and they wanted $9000.00+ so once again I say to u THANK YOU FOR POSTING UR VIDEOS.. I would have never known...

Does anybody know which lipo they offer at Jacobi? I inquired about lipo but got no response. I wanted to know if they do vaser lipo or trdational lipo.

I think your belly looks great...love your videos, what matters most is that your happy and satisfied with your results. I recently started looking into a tummy tuck, kinda addicted to this website...hopefully getting mines done early next year....after three big boys my stomachs full of stretch marks ;( not cute..no hanging skin but I prefer having a scar rather than these baby marks (as my 8yr old calls them)..thanks for sharing your story ;)

bellyboop i wanted to know is there a place in philly that is cheaper? Because the cost for the tummy tuck where she went isn't 2100.00 anymore its 4600.00 and the consultaion is 195.00. I called and spoke to someone for there...But if you know anyone in Philly that is safe and knows what there doing pls let me know..

Ronishia & Bellyboop that is correct its no longer 2100 its 4600.00. I am scheduled for my surgery on 11/21 god willing. Other then Tasha my husband cousin had hers done 3 yrs ago and her incision is awesome and had a great recuperation. Then when I met Tasha that confirmed it. I can not wait. I am excited. Good luck to you all.

Are all tummy tucks $2100 or thats what they just told you personally? I want to know because the consultation fee is $195 dollars and I don't want to pay that if I won't be getting the same or around the same price as you....I can just get it done in philly for all that....Did you have to pay a consult fee?

Thanks!
oh and you look great girl!
