You Are in Good Hands with Dr. Tehrani - Great Neck, NY

It’s almost a joke to call what I had done by Dr. Tehrani a “Tummy Tuck.” A former part-time model, I’ve been svelte all my life. But after C-section birth of a beautiful daughter at age 41, I ended up with a severe diastasis recti. My abs were so distended that people were congratulating me on my new pregnancy(!) (I wasn’t.) I’ve always been scared of ps in general.
It almost sounds too cute and easy to call what I needed a “Tummy Tuck.” A former part-time model, I’ve been svelte all my life. But after C-section birth of my beautiful baby, at age 41, I ended up with diastasis recti (separation of abs) unusually severe and complicated. Still thin, but with a tummy so distended that people thought I was pregnant. I got "Congrats on your pregnancy!" everywhere I went! Scared and “against” ps all my life, it took me six years to finally get it done, three of which I spent researching the best doctor. I would’ve flown across the country if I had to, but the best doctor was right here in my NY. Dr. Tehrani has the experience and focus on diastasis repair and lateral tension TTs that I needed. He was the very best choice! His work is artistry. His and his staff are so professional and helpful throughout the recovery process. They really go that extra mile, and have big hearts too. I felt like they all became my friends. His RN Theresa in particular, helped by encouraging me to bite the bullet and go thru with it. Thanks Theresa! Wish I would have done it years ago! Three months after, I can't believe how much my life has already changed, even in my career, with a confidence like never before. Before the surgery, I had the typical mid-life trepidations, but the tummy added further feelings of insecurity. I was simply going downhill. Now, I will hit age 50 fearlessly and looking more gorgeous than ever (haha). No to mention, the TT seemed to repair other medical problems I had had... like urinary incontinence... You are in good hands if you choose Dr. Tehrani. To everyone at Aristocrat! Thanks so much! -- S.R.
