My body went through two C sections and a 40lb weight loss. I knew the only way to remove the extra skin was by a TT. I carry all my weight in my stomach and it didn't match the rest of my body. I worked out and have very toned arms and legs...my stomach just hung over my jeans and people frequently asked me if I was pregnant. I finally made the decision to have it done but the cost of the surgery was a barrier for me. I researched about haven the surgery in Costa Rica or Dominican Republic for about $5000. I felt uncomfortable going out of the USA so I looked into resident clinics at medical schools in my area. I am soooo glad I did. The staff was wonderful, the doctor amazing and the facility was top notch and I was able to save $4500.

My recovery is going well and I can tell already that my final result will exceed my expectations.

I highly recommend looking at medical schools in the USA before going abroad for plastic surgery.
