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

Met with Dr. Okoro May 2015 right after I have booked my breast augmentation with an Alabama doctor. He and his staff were so professional and took time to answer questions.

So I go in for my tummy tuck on September 21st at 9:30am. I am using Dr. David Godat in Dallas. I have to say although I am very excited, I am extremely nervous.

I'm a 33 year old mum of 2, aged 13 & 7. I've wanted to do this for longer than I can remember.
