It has been five months since my surgery and I still feel that Dr. Cooper and his team did a fantastic job. I am thrilled with the results of my surgery and my only regret is that I didn’t have the tummy tuck and arm lift earlier. I am still far from feeling like I have a “perfect body” (who does?) but now am not mortified of my belly or frustrated by clothes not fitting correctly.
A note on a potential con of the procedure: I was surprised by how little pain I experienced immediately after the surgery. I took the prescribed meds to avoid discomfort but do wish that I was aware of the impact this would have on my GI system…I would strongly urge a person who has a similar procedure to keep tabs on this, as the only terrible distress that I experienced was constipation/hemorrhoids as a result of the meds. I was given stool softeners but apparently I needed something stronger or a larger does; I made the mistake of not noticing the issue until it was too late to comfortably remedy/avoid.

I went to Dr. Cooper after receiving a referral from a family member. I sought out Dr. Cooper for a solution to excess skin that has bothered me since major weight loss 10 years ago. I was immediately impressed with how down-to-earth and personable he was, which was especially refreshing to me because I had a consultant with a doctor at another hospital that did not have nearly as good of rapport. Dr. Cooper suggested an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and brachioplasty (arm lift). He went over exactly how the procedures would be performed and what to expect through recovery. He provided helpful photos to illustrate the appearance I should anticipate as incisions heal/scars fade over time. From there I was given an estimate of cost and payment options (that turned out to be accurate). I went into surgery feeling that the doctor and his team did everything possible to mentally, emotionally, logistically, and financially prepare me. Dr. Cooper has been open to all of my questions and concerns throughout the process and always has a positive and encouraging attitude. I find his staff at Seattle Pacific Surgeons to be equally pleasant to work with, and they also offer top-notch medical service. I am especially grateful for the assistance of his Surgery Coordinator, Karen Taylor, for her friendliness and professionalism. I highly recommend Dr. Cooper and his staff. The care I received could not have been any better!
