If someone had said to me that I would be posting nude photos online, I'd have thought it was the beginning of a bad Paris Hilton joke. Seriously though, Realself and the honesty of its members has been such a source of inspiration and wealth of information while navigating this process that I... READ MORE

I migrated to the United States from the Middle East in what is referred to as an arranged marriage. Due to the conservative culture and upbringing, I was not able to workout or go out in public without full cover. I had two beautiful girls during that time until I divorced my husband. Couple...

I have been on real self for quite some time before I scheduled my surgeries. Originally, I had no plans of sharing my experience on here since there were so many who do. But I find that I experienced some things that I have not heard mentioned (or found mentioned) and believe it would be... READ MORE

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

After losing approximately 120 pounds, I was left with saggy skin and flesh that no amount of exercise could fix. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Capella and his physician assistant, Scott, for their competence, artistry, and kindness - my results exceeded my expectations and I am extremely... READ MORE

Never thought any of this was possible, I figured I was just too old and I have lived with a troubled bottom half my whole life, so just thought that was the way things had to be.

Lost about 40kg after gastric sleeve. Had to get rid of excess skin via Bodylift and Bilateral Medial Thigh Lift. Remarkably well the day after operation. Up on my feet next day, though it takes about a week to feel 'normal' again. Takes about six weeks to recover well and you have to wear a... READ MORE

I have battled my weight my entire life. I had gastric sleeve in November 2011 and lost 126 lbs total. This left my body with a lot of extra skin. I worked out 2-3 hours a day with no improvement in my tummy. Dr Nir recommended a circumferential lower body lift. The surgery lasted about 9 hours... READ MORE

WELL! I have been all over this website for about two years now. If you have had a lower body lift on this planet and written about it here on Realself, then i most likely have read it and looked at your pictures. There are so many amazing stories on here. I love that this community has been... READ MORE

I had visited numerous plastic surgeons in the Charlotte area, but when I met Dr. Kortesis and his team I knew that this was where I would have my surgery. Due to the large amount of weight loss I have had over the past 4 years, I needed more than just a tummy tuck. Dr. Kortesis was the FIRST... READ MORE

I had wanted a tummy tuck for some time after initially losing some weight. I was always a "big girl" and at 5'1" my top weight (OUTSIDE PREGNANCY) was 220lbs. My family has a long history of obesity and 7 family members have had gastric bypass! I really wanted to avoid that but it wasn't until... 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.
