Abdominoplasty (commonly known as a tummy tuck) removes excess skin and fat around the stomach while tightening the abdominal wall. The surgery is frequently 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 umbilicoplasty. Other procedures such as liposuction or breast augmentation are often performed at the same time. This is commonly referred to as a mommy makeoverLEARN MORE

I've started doing my research for about a month now and I've found a few docs that interest me. My question is, who is considered the "mother/father" of tummy tuck procedures? I... READ MORE

My husband and I can't say enough. When I first looked into starting my 'surgical journey', I wanted to make sure I had Doctor that could not only see my vision, but bring it to life.

I saw tons of reviews on different Doctors on RealSelf. After lots of research and following a number of Dr Ortega's patients, I felt confident that he was the Surgeon for me. I went online and started the process there by submitting my photos. Oh... Btw I'm outside of Chicago. I was... READ MORE

I'm loving Dr. Newall. His smile and expertise eased my concerns. He was so knowledgeable about large volume Lipo. If you are going to opt for my extreme, don't go running for the border unless they are board certified and experienced. Dr. Newall was an amazing find in a over populated pool of... READ MORE

I have battled with weight loss/gain all my life but after having five C-Sections there was no way I would ever get rid of this stomach alone.
