I'm nearly 3 weeks out and am struggling with the recovery from the auto augmentation. I did not realize the discomfort, and this has been the hardest part of the recovery. I don't know how long I can live with not being able to lean back, walk, lie on my back, without feeling like I'm laying... READ MORE

Hello ladies and gentleman that someday may come across this review/journey. It's with much excitement and anticipation that I begin to write my thoughts on what's to come. Let me start by saying that this website has been such an inspiring tool for me to proceed with my review. It's truly hard... READ MORE

I interviewed the finest doctors in DFW and I would strongly recommend the one I chose to anyone. He is not only a genuine and honest person, he is responsive and his results are incredible. Yes, I am admitting I had plastic surgery (Allbeit under extenuating circumstances), but we as women... READ MORE

I've had a "mother's apron" since my first child was born 25 years ago. My middle is also, unfortunately, where I seem to store my fat. I always wanted to get rid of the flab around the middle and was finally in a position to get it. I had a facelift with Dr. Vitenas a year ago, and was very... READ MORE

Hi! I'm very new to RealSelf but I have been lurking for awhile--at least most of 2015. I am 35 yrs old and thus far I've lost 100 lbs through focusing on dieting initially, but most of my recent weight loss has been due to me making healthier choices and habits with food and incorporating...

Dr. Bekanich did a wonderful job in my circumferential body lift, chest contouring, back and arm lifts. She was the perfect example of professionalism and her patient care is second to none. She was able to answer all of my questions in an understandable manner and her follow up care was... READ MORE

After finishing with several consultations I have chosen a doctor and committed to a surgery date. I am both excited and terrified if I'm being truly honest, but can't imagine not doing this. I am curious for inside and opinions about things to have on hand helpful tips for recovery etc. I will... READ MORE

After losing close to 200 pounds I suffered from loose skin. I lived in shape wear and really didn't enjoy looking at myself naked. After losing all of that weight I wanted to feel comfortable in my skin! I really enjoy fitness and my stomach would cause me problems during workouts. I felt I... READ MORE

So far so good. Communication has been a little complicated and drawn out because most has been via email, but Fatimeh and Dr. Cardenas have both been very courteous and professional. My procedure will include the following: -Extended tummy tuck with muscle repair -Liposuction to waist, upper... READ MORE

I'm actually writing a review! Yippee!!! 12 years post gastric bypass beauty! 415 lbs at 23 years old. Now 163 lbs. My journey has been extremely challenging. The perfect ingredient for pressing forward! Early 2013, I was fed up with my geriatric looking body. The wrinkled, elephant looking,... READ MORE

I have been following quite a few ladies and their journeys after weight loss here and now I am starting my journey next week! Almost a year ago I just got fed up with myself and decided being so heavy was not who I wanted to be. At the time I was 227 pounds and only 5 feet tall. I qualified... READ MORE

After losing 240 pounds through diet and exercise over 2 years, and completely changing my life to insure my weight loss was permanent by becoming a personal trainer and nutrition coach, I had done all I could with exercise to tighten and tone the skin left hanging around when I went from a 61...

I am 95% ready to do this. I am confident I have found the doctor. My husband is super supportive. I just need to go for it. I had the lap band in 2008. I have been stalled at 172-175 for too long. I box and kickbox a few times a week, but I have a hard time doing everything because of my tummy,... READ MORE

Getting a lower body lift was the best thing I've ever done for myself. I'd lost a lot of weight after having gastric bypass, had 2 children, but still had self confidence issues because of the excess I was carrying around on my body. Being able to get the hanging fat and skin off has changed... READ MORE
