Abdominoplasty (commonly known as a tummy tuck) removes excess skin and fat around the stomach while tightening the abdominal wall. This surgery is often performed after pregnancy or weight loss, when the skin has become stretched or saggy. A new belly button may need to be surgically created by an umbilicoplastyLiposuction may also be performed, most often on flanks or “love handles." LEARN MORE

After taking care of my family, kids, surviving a divorce...It is time to do something for myself. Weight gain and loss and a C-section left my mid section looking very stretched out, a lot of loose skin, and in general - unsexy. Exercise, diets, no carbs just do not help. I have bird arms...

I've been reading reviews so even though I am a very private person I have been helped so much by this community I want to give back. Currently I am 2 days o.p.

Hi everyone, I've been stalking this page for over 3 years and finally decided to post! I've been pretty much overweight my whole life. My weight fluctuates quite a bit which has resulted in lots of loose skin. I recently started an intense work out program that I hope will improve my body... READ MORE

Day 2 PO... So far so good. The pain is manageable between the Oxycodon and the Valium. Last night the Oxy had me itching like crazy. I thought it was an allergic reaction and texted Dr. Reisin. He told me it makes people itch and to take Benedryl. It worked. I've been up walking every 2 hours... READ MORE

I just turned 47 years old. I do not have any children but did endure an abdominal tumor surgery when I was in my early 40's. This surgery left me with very little stomach muscles so this year I have decided to make it better. Working out has not helped because of my age and lack of... READ MORE

I have decided to take the plunge and get a mommy makeover. I had 3 big babies in 3 years, and now that the youngest is 3 I feel like it's time. I scheduled my surgery for 6 months out because I don't want to miss out on summer, birthday's, etc. November seems like a good time to do it. I have... READ MORE

I am a 51 year old mom of 2 (one the old fashioned way by C-section, one through adoption so I can't blame her for my 20 year old baby weight!) and scheduled for a tummy tuck and breast lift w/augmentation on May 9, 2016. I have lost a significant amount of weight (~108 lbs) by using... READ MORE

Even as a teenager, Ive always had a pouch of fat below my belly button. I wasnt like my older sister who looked like she just stepped off the cover of a Glamor magazine. As time passed, getting older, my pouch was still there, and I began to notice my skin wasnt tight. Everything started... READ MORE

I am 5"3 and 145 lbs. I live in the New Orleans area of Louisiana and in January 2015 began doing research on the Brazilian Butt Lift. I have never had much of a butt and have always been self conscious but never knew there was anything I could do about it. About maybe 5 years ago I changed the... READ MORE

I have been wanting this surgery for many years. I actually went for my consult in Feburary 2015, and I booked my surgery a couple of months ago.

It's been a long time that I've wanted to fix my body...unfortunately didn't have the opportunity till now. I'm quite nervous and don't know what to expect.

My procedure is scheduled for July 6, 2016 with Dr. Traci Temmen in Tampa Florida. I am living in Kissimmee, Fl so the travel for me is easy. Dr. Temmen is a very nice calm person, first I went to Miami at Spectrum but then I said there's got to be someone closer so I searched the internet and... READ MORE
