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 am so nervous about the procedure and wanted to hear some experiences from previous patients of ortega. I really wanted to know how... READ MORE

Hi!! I been reading on this website all day and just knew I had to join and share my story..first of all I'm 31, 5'1 and 160. I went to my consult for a breast aug and ended up wanting a tummy tuck! I didn't think it was possibly because of my weight even though I don't look 160. But my dr said... READ MORE

I've lost a lot of weight and my second child really stretched me! The surgeon I saw gave me the option of a mini or full, but made sure I knew the mini wouldn't correct anything above the belly button. The full should get rid of my pooch and my stretch marks, so I am pretty excited for that. I... READ MORE

I cannot believe this if finally happening! My consult is on April 29. Already have my finances in order for the surgery. I plan to have a TT with lipo. I've taken care of everyone else my whole life. My husband and I have 9 children. 4 biological and 5 adopted. 3 are special needs and our... READ MORE

I have always been a very proportionate woman. I actually was told by many..."Just do burpies..and in a couple months..youll be there... Ummm.... READ MORE

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 had the hourglass tummy tuck performed by Dr. Wilberto Cortez (AKA Dr. Hourglass) and although I'm still swollen and in the healing process, I am so excited about my results! He gave me a new figure that I never imagined I could have! The healing process is a little slower than I thought but... READ MORE

I just want to have a waist again! Looking forward to wearing a dress(or any of my clothing) without this belly! I've been cleaning house and preparing meals so my husband won't have to worry about it. I plan to sleep in the recliner downstairs. Don't think I'll try the stairs for a few days!!!... READ MORE

Hello again! I'm back for a full Tummy Tuck procedure after 2 years post a mini Tummy Tuck in 2014. Although I was ok with my Mini TT, I wasn't as pleased as I would have wanted. I chose the MTT as a temporary fix and recovery time constraints. Not long before that, I had back surgery so it was... READ MORE

So I was supposed to get a breast implant exchange which I was prepared for. It had been 15 years since my last surgery and I was ready to take care of the maintenance. It was suggested to me by a family member who had previously had a breast lift that I should also do my tummy. Worst... READ MORE

17 years ago I had a gastric bypass and lost 120lbs. With 20lbs of excess skin I wasn't happy with the way I looked or felt. I had a fleur-de-lis tummy tuck earlier this year after realizing that the excess skin was impacting my life. Best decision I have made in years. I am so pleased with... READ MORE

Went into this wanting a tummy tuck?? Through research and consultations decided on a full tummy tuck with lipo and transfer to the butt. I love the results of one doctor, but he's not certified(eligible tho). Found a certified doctor in Dominican Republic, but scared to go out the country....... READ MORE

After losing 100 pounds by dieting and weight training, I finally had the strong muscular look of an athlete, but I always hid my saggy midsection skin under loose shirts. Now that I'm a personal trainer I had to get rid of this extra baggage once and for all. After two years of research and... 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

I'm hours away from my tummy tuck, I'm really nervous but when I met Dr. J his presence is keeping me calm. I have no clue what to expect with the pain and what I'm going to lick like after. I feel like I'm not going to be able to move for weeks. God willing everything goes great tomorrow. I... READ MORE

A am plus sized women but I am happy with my curves except on my waist. I have been working out, dieting never works for me. I have seen many inprovements on my arms and shoulders, but not in my waist! Saw my ps yesterday for my last visit before procedure. I got everything paid for! Now I just... READ MORE

Like most people on here I have been following everyone and everything. I only discovered it late last year after having a not so good lower facelift and seeing what results I should have achieved. I certainly wish I had known about it before then I wouldn’t have gone with the guy that I did. ... READ MORE

Like many I have been stalking realself.com for months. Finally decided to call Vanity Miami for Dr. Fisher. When I called I was happy to learned that they had a special on the Tummy Tucks if you pay cash. I was skeptical at first about them wanting a wire transfer, but I read on here that... READ MORE

The Real Self community has helped me tremendously in my journey. So I wanted to pay forward and share my experience. Hopefully others will find useful. Although I am a little behind in documenting my journey, I did take notes and will try to incorporate as much as possible. I’ll also try a... READ MORE
