Like a traditional tummy tuck, the mini removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen. However, this procedure focuses only on the area below the belly button, not the entire abdomen. This is often performed on women who have mild sagging or post-baby pooch, stretch marks from pregnancy, or C-section scarring. LEARN MORE ›

After giving birth to my singleton and twins, I developed real bad Diasis Recti causing me to appear 3 months pregnant, which was very disturbing to me esp. as a competitive runner. Dr. Hess did an amazing job and I'm very happy with the end result!! My self esteem and self confidence is back!... READ MORE

I had been in college for several years and really didn't take care of myself. After things slowed down, I found that I was about 45 lbs over-weight. In the last year I started exercising and taking better care of myself. I lost 30+ lbs but still didn't have the look I wanted. Dr. Nein made... READ MORE

My expectations are to remove the fat layer that I have carried all my life in my lower abdomen, despite exercising 4-6 times a week (cardio, some weights, yoga, planks, etc). In addition, I hope to say goodbye to the fat which has accumulated on my abdomen since menopause which began when I was... READ MORE

Ever since I had my second child 3 1/2 years ago my belly has been flabby and looking pregnid. Excercise and healthy diet could not cure this so I decided to finally get a tummy tuck.

Hi there. I recently had a consultation for a tummy tuck. While being examined the surgeon said that I could get away with a mini tuck. He said anything below my belly button would be "fixed". And that he wouldn't touch my belly button but the appearance of it would improve some. The reason for... READ MORE

I set up a profile on here a week before my surgery to tell ya'll at little about myself and how I found my way to this site and such but after I finished my LONG bio and tried to submit it my computer froze up and I lost everything! I wasn't about to start over. Anyway, I had my surgery just a... READ MORE

As the ex wife of a prominent surgeon, of course I consulted with only the top Manhattan Plastic surgeons - one who I've used for previous surgeries. I heard about Dr. Schulman's Smooth Tuck procedure, and researched it thoroughly. I'm a size 2 (5'5 and 115 lbs) so not your typical smooth tuck... READ MORE

After birthing 5 kids (last two were 9 pounds) my stomach is in need of repair! I'm 5'6 and 145 pounds, so not terribly overweight, but my stomach sticks out like I'm 3 months pregnant and I hate it! It's so hard to find cloths that fit my skinny legs and my waist, and I usually wear my shirts... READ MORE

I was only charged $1550 for the mini tt and lipo as he did a 50% reduction for doing the ba redo. I am 3 weeks and 4 days post op and still have severe swelling. It has not gone down since day 1. It looks the same. I'm really depressed about that. But I looked at some photos of a lady that... READ MORE

The annual ageing process conspired with gravity and childbirth to produce a pouch that no amount of exercise would shift. I'm now 17 days post op, scar is flat, swelling still apparent but I can already see improvement. This was day surgery and I stayed in a nearby hotel. Dr. O. Picked... READ MORE
