Best Decision I've Made in Years - Wellesley, MA

To achieve self-esteem about my body. At 10...

To achieve self-esteem about my body.

At 10 weeks post-op from a full abdominoplasty, and repair to pregnancy-induced diastasis recti and umbilical hernia, I am fully confident that I made the right choice.

Since this procedure was almost 100% out-of-pocket, it was not a decision to be made lightly.  Even in this early stage, I am already the happiest and healthiest version of me I have been since the birth of my eldest child over seven years ago. Dr. O gave me back the body I knew I would never be able to achieve, regardless of healthy and active lifestyle choices. 

I look and feel more attractive than I ever thought possible, and I am HEALTHY. My incision is healing so quickly I am astounded, and I am a clothing size I haven't worn in a decade.  A word to the wise when viewing ANY physician reviews: if the reviewer can't spell or use proper grammar, or gives a negative review with NO details, consider the source. Every now and then, a non-compliant patient will disregard doctor's orders, and post a negative review about the results. Just like people who post negative reviews to recipes, stating, "I followed it exactly, EXCEPT..." I am an educated and sound-minded woman. This was a decision many years in the making. But it all came to pass within a few months of meeting Dr. O. Trust her - she is a perfectionist!

In truth, Dr. O is the ONLY surgeon I interviewed. While her home-office setting may be off-putting to some, keep in mind - it is the surgeon's skills in the OR, not her office setting, that is paramount. Her fee of $150 is completely reasonable, as it includes initial consult, pre-op, and unlimited post-op visits. I believe this policy is the mark of a qualified surgeon. Everyone benefits from proper post-op care without the added concern of additional cost. Dr. O answers emails within no less than 24 hours, consistently. I felt I was in the hands of someone who wanted to make me back into the woman I was meant to be, hiding behind the trappings of pregnancy and C-sections.
