I wore a size 4 before surgery and still wear a size 4. I only needed my abs tightened and some lose skin removed. Pro's were no-drain to mess with. Con's the results of the surgery. My lower abs protrude and I have a long ugly indented scar from my old belly button. I would not recommend Dr Sando..

No drain tummy tuck

Had a full tummy tuck. Less then happy with the results. The doctor said my lower abs muscles were not tightened enough and that's why they are bulging. My old belly button scar is a one inch indented scar that sits about an inch below my new belly button so it looks odd. I was quoted $4800 to re-tighten my abs and fix the dented scar. They gave me a tentative surgery date to re-do everything but the assistant said she had to call me back to confirm and never did. I'm not sure what I will do now, I'm so bummed and perhaps need another doctor.

So sorry... I had a great experience with Dr. Sando. I can understand your frustration though. I hope you get the answers you need soon. I can't believe they never called you back. I hope you get answers from them soon. I wonder if they even told him. I am a nurse and sometimes others in the office take it upon themselves to relay what they want to the doctor. Anyway, Dr. Turkle was my second choice. Good luck!

So far I've met with 2 doctors and both questioned if my lower abs were even tightened I will basically need a a mini tummy tuck plus a revision to the old belly button scar which they say will require fat grafting!...In a nut shell....this will end up costing me even more then a regular mini should and then you tack on what I already spent. So depressing...

I'm so sorry that you have had this disappointing experience! I had my tummy tuck done in Carmel Indiana by Dr. Turkle, 4 months ago, and she did a wonderful job. Have you heard of her? If you need a revision, I would highly recommend her. Best wishes to you.
