I am 38 y/o with 4 children ( 21,19,11,7). I have been living with this horrible stomach for the last 19 years. I have not worn a two piece bathing suit since I was about 4 y/o. My oldest son says im too old for a tummy tuck but I beg the differ. I am so tired of not being able to wear cute (FITTED) clothes. I have been online looking for PS and boy is it a job.. I am torn between having it done in Philly which is so expensive or another state. I

It'll be fine hun. You'll never regret doing this, just imagine how fabulous you'll look after it's all done and over with! When I had regrets, I'd go window shopping for bikini's - worked a treat to keep me motivated!

Well I had an appiointment with Dr. Saunders yesterday at1:45. I got there at 12:45. They gave me the papers to fill out and said have a seat. At 1:20 I decided to go up and ask if I was next. The ladies were very sweet. She said there is about another 2 or 3 people in front of you. Now I am figuring he will be at least an hour each person...... i had my money ready to pay and schedule..well I left. Dr. Chang is just around the corner and that is where I went. I am sooo excited!

Ok! Thanks! I wanted to use the credit also instead of paying up front but I am a little nervous about it. My husband keep telling me to pay it all out of pocket but I don't want to be broke at the same time either... I will need a new wardrobe to go along with the new body too...lol

i don't know if he is listed here. I reached out to a few people who were local to me that posted TT reviews here and asked them who they used. When they told me his name, I had trouble locating his website also. But they both gave me excellent reviews on him, so I called the office and even the receptionist was wonderful from my first phone call. I will inbox you his site and phone number.

I was trying to see some of his work but I can't find him on here... Is there a certain place I need to look for him?

Does that include the hospital fees too?
  • Reply
yes, it's the whole package. I am going to pay it next week... I found a credit card with 15 mo no interest on purchases, PLUS cash back, so i decided to pat for it that way. I have to pay the surgeon, anesthesiologist and hospital as separate transactions, but it all comes to 7200. I was floored by the price. In fact, I asked why they were so low when I was there and they told me that the dc has beeb affiliated with the hospital for so long that he negotiated great rates with them and he passes those rates on to his patients. The other place I went to for a consult was very fancy... fancy couches/chandeliers, fountains, and coffees/snacks in the waiting area... obviously that is all wrapped into the cost of my surgery, ya know?

HI there... Have you made a decision yet? I had a consult in Doylestown and one in Allentown. I am going with the guy in Allentown, based on reviews from a few people here. I'm scheduled for October 18th. I was really comfy with him and he is closer to home for me- I live in the Lehigh Valley, but I was born and raised in Philly. Good luck in your decision.

Hi michtrif.... I actually had an appointment on the 16th in Delaware with Dr. Chang... He was awesome... For 8,500 I will get tt, mr, mt, lipo on flanks back inner thighs and fat injections... I do have another appointment with a Dr. Saunders on the 25th. They are not far from each other. If I don't like Dr. Saunders, I will pay for my surgery with Dr. Chang that day. What is the name of your Dr.? I would like to stay close if its worth it.

I am using Dr. Guarino in Allentown. I was really comfortable with him and his team. He recommended a Lower Body Lift (some call this an extended tummy tuck bc the incision goes completely around my body and he will contour my hips/butt to match my new belly.) The total cost for this plus lipo on my inner thighs is $7200. For just the TT it was $5300.

PlantStrongMom do you know the name of the surgeons? Also can you tell me how to post pictures? I am having a hard time..

Thanks for replying! I have an appointment in NY at Lenox hospital on Wednesday. The prices are really reasonable but I was thinking about transportation for my first couple visits. Will it be tolerable and worth it. I did go to one consult and was advised that I needed muscle tightening and lipo along with my tt at 8,200 until 9/1 after then it will go to 9,200 so I need to make a decision quick.
