When it comes to this procedure, keep your eyes on the belly button. A mini tummy tuck focuses on the belly from below the button to the pubic area; in a traditional tuck, all of the abdomen is at play. The mini may be used to address C-section scarring in women with very little loose skin. LEARN MORE ›

Had two c-sections in less than 2 yrs 24 years ago. At my age it's now or never! I chose now! I'm tired of the pouch that wouldn't go away even after 4 days at the gym, karate, and a personal trainer! Was finally told I can't work it off. Pics below are 1 week postop, 2 weeks post op, 3 weeks!... READ MORE

I went to 4 PS before choosing mine. I was terrified to do this over such a small problem area, in others eyes. But in mine it was such an annoyance and confident crusher. Before my surgery I was going to the gym 5-6x a week and eating clean...doing everything I possibly could to try to fix my... READ MORE

I received a mini tummy tuck and a lipo from Dr Erika Sato in Houston TX. I have never been skinny but never overweight. My gut/pooch had just been accepted by this age. After my daughter it was a little looser to the touch but not noticeably different. I gratefully was a part of my company... READ MORE

Im 51 5'1, 120 pounds. I'm only 5 days post but so far I'm very happy with the way it looks. Was not expecting the pain I'm experiencing. My back is hurting so bad from being bent over. And I feel like something is crawling inside me where my drainage tubes are. I go tomorrow to get them out.... READ MORE

This is a long-winded way of saying that I highly recommend Dr. Pyle. I consulted with him about a breast lift and tummy tuck, but ultimately I decided to just do the tummy tuck. His procedures were priced reasonably and were in line with the other quotes that I got. His nurse, Molly, is... READ MORE

My motivation for this procedure was to better myself for me to increase my self confidence and feel comfortable in my own skin after having the gastric sleeve and going from 235lbs to 155lbs my stomach was flabby I was ashamed to even look at myself in the mirror. Now I am 5 wks post op and so... READ MORE

I have four children. The last two were via C-section. Overall, I'm happy with my body and appreciate that I'm healthy and can walk, run, and breathe every day! I stay very active with my kids and do crossfit 3x a week. But no amount of diet or exercise can get rid of the soft little pooch over... READ MORE

So I decided to write and document my surgery because I see their is not many reviews regarding thinner women in my height and weight range. In 4 days I will be having a mini tummy tuck and lipo on my abdomen,hips,flank, back and inner and outer thighs. I'm 37, 5'6 and currently weigh 124lbs. I... READ MORE

A mother's priority is to focus on the children. When the children are grown and leave for college, you find you have time on your hands. What's a girl to do but look at herself in the mirror. So you gotta get real with yourself and pull yourself back together! That's my story, just like many... READ MORE

I am an avid crossfit junkie. The only thing that was hindering my body and confidence was the loose skin on my stomach as a result of having 2 vertical c-sections and 1 horizontal. I gained 80lbs each the lady two pregnancieseparate, so my tummy looked like a deflated balloon. I had a mini... READ MORE

Hey ladies, I'm coming up to my surgery date, the surgeon has told me I have good tummy muscles so won't need any muscle repair and it will be a mini tummy tuck from under my belly button. Nerves are starting to kick in now! Not sure quite what happens in terms of how they actually do the... READ MORE

Hi all, I had a mini tummy tuck done three weeks ago to correct some sagging skin that was very noticeable when I bent over. The skin sagged from my lower abdomen to mid stomach. I had lost around 80 pounds and was frustrated after all the work I did to lose it I was still embarrassed to be in... READ MORE

My PS told me I'm not a good candidate for a full TT. not enough loose skin above my Belly Button. a Full TT with vertical scar seems not a good option. Can I get good results with a mini TT with Lipo without Muscle repair? will Muscle repair make so a big difference? Im almost 5' tall, short... READ MORE

Their aren't any words to really describe how satisfied I am with my procedure.... but here are a few Dr. Linville is very experienced in what he does... I never thought I'd be able to wear a 2 piece bathing suit comfortably again... but now I can just in time for summer.... very pleased with... READ MORE

I'm very petite, thin and a gym addict. I work hard to look good. I can work out every part of my body so well, but as my Surgen said because of my mussel damage and CS scar. I will never shift the podge that hangs over the scar. It is small and people think I'm crazy for doing it, but I hate... READ MORE

I have had liposuction before in Houston what a waste nothing was satisfactory. I was so depressed after seeing the failed results. After talking to a friend we decided to travel to Dominican seen we did our homework on all the skilled doctors producing amazing results. I am planning to have... READ MORE

I am 43 years old 5'10" 142 pounds. I have dreamed of doing this procedure ever since I had my children. I was not very active during my first pregnancy and spent most of my days munching away on whatver I pleased thinking "it will all just go away after I have the baby". Well....as we all... READ MORE

Had a mini tummy tuck more than 10 years ago with dr Bucky. This is what it looks like now. I've included photos to show I am in good shape. I would be writing this negative review except that dr Bucky would not waive a consult fee for me to come back and have him look at his work. I have had... READ MORE

Going under the knife 3/31 for a hysterectomy, bladder repair, mini tummy tuck and vaginal rejuvenation. My doc has been very thorough in explaining things to me, but I'm definitely still apprehensive and nervous about the pain. I'm told to expect to be out of work for 6-8 weeks. Yikes!! I hate...
