After losing 120 lbs I had excess skin on my stomach and deflated uneven breasts. I had several consults and decided to go with Dr.Smith. He was about the same price as other surgeons but he seemed much more aware of what I needed to make the best shape, I needed the skin removed and my breasts fixed but for 10k I wanted to look hot. I did silicone implants with a nipple lift, tummy tuck and lipo. The recovery was pretty difficult for me but Dr.Smith was always available by phone for questions. I'm not sure how much a doctor can prepare you for the post op procedure, because everyone is different, but it was tough and I the anesthesia made my legs like limp noodles for 2 days. When all was said and done i have a flat tummy, nearly perfect breasts and a low scar. I was a difficult case and I couldn't be happier with the result. I have some minor wrinkles at the edge of my scar on my tummy but if that's all I have to live with ill take it. I would do it all again. Christine at the front desk is so sweet, only thing I would recommend is doing your own research on what to expect post surgery to better prepare. I probably could have benefitted from more post op recovery time with the doctor around, only because it freaked my mom out when I couldn't walk and lost a lot of my color, but I'm glad I didn't have a required overnight hospital stay. If you are doing a tummy tuck, Have a shower stool, a wheel chair, bathrobes, straws and someone to help much longer than 1 day. It's rough but I would never be this happy had I not done it.
Only thing I hate
When you have a front tuck and they don't cut all the way around you can have a "dog ear" skin fold on the side where the incision closes. No one can notice with clothes- just part of the deal- only thing I don't like.
