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

I've always wanted a tummy tuck. I finally said it's time for me. For the last few years I attend the gym a few days a week, run around with my kids at sports, and do everything for everyone else. I looked around and went for a consult at Long Island plastic surgery group. The doctor and office... READ MORE

OK so a little of my story, when I was in school I was bullied to the point where I was stabbed had my hair and clothes set on fire and much more just for standing up for myself and doing well in school. My boyfriend died at 17 of cancer both sets of my grandparents died in the next 6 months and... READ MORE

Freaking out bc surgery is in less than 3 days & my husband decided to get sick w/bronchitis!!! I've read so much about recovery & almost fainted when the doctor was discussing postop care! I'd be an idiot not to think it will be painless but wondering if I should reschedule till my husband is... READ MORE

I was tired of my flat butt,decided to do something about it. I had a Brazilian buttlift. It was painful, but also worth it. I'm scheduled for a tummy tuck on 1-22-16,I'm kinda nervous about it. One thing I do know is that I'm in good hands. Pictures,coming soon of both procedures and the... READ MORE

So I am scheduled to have a TT with lipo of flanks in September and I am totally stoked to finally be doing this!! After putting on massive weight with my one and only son 12+ years ago, my body's shape has never been the same; even when returning to pre pregnancy weight my body has never been... READ MORE

Hello to all my REAL realself sisters! It's finally my time! I have been researching this procedure for about a year and a half, once I realized diet and exercise would not fix my wrinkled stretched out skin. I have gained so much insight from the posts on this site. Realself is my plastic... READ MORE

I had my consultation, went back and forth on the lipo only vs lipo with tummy tuck. Dr. Deal was soo great about understanding my hesitancy to just jump into to the whole shebang. He was really patient, never rushed and really nice. I appreciate his approach as not only a physician but an... READ MORE

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

*I have not had surgery yet* I am going to Dra. Almonte this summer; I've seen her work and she has worked up miracles with some pretty jacked up bodies (like my own). I have some questions; how hard was it to get your hemoglobin levels to 13/14 and what did you do or use to get to those... READ MORE

I had the gastric sleeve done on August 12, 2014. I was 315lbs. before surgery and currently 175lbs. I am very... READ MORE

I have booked my surgery with Dr Michael Salzhauer I originally wanted a Lipo and BBL and breast reduction/Breast Implants but now I have a changed of heart and would like a tummy tuck because I want to remove the stretchmark on my stomach (below belly button). I would like to achieve a body... READ MORE

I have been on this site for a year just reading reviews and I think I am ready to do this for myself. A little about me. I am just 5 feet tall, if I have a slight heel on my shoes. I have two wonderful children who were fairly large despite barely gaining pregnancy weight. My daughter was... READ MORE

I wasn't sure if I was going to review or blog about my experience, but I might as well give it a whirl. I'm 33 years old and I have been overweight basically all my life. When I was in my early 20's I got to my highest weight and decided enough was enough and got a Lap Band. I lost almost... READ MORE

Hi all I just rescheduled my TT & liposuction with dr. Kolder in Camarillo ca from July 6 to June 8. I just couldn't wait any longer & found a gap in my work schedule for a month earlier :). I was beyond ecstatic!!!! I have 4 adult children & my pregnancies weren't bad since I never gained... READ MORE

I'm 5'3 198lbs and I went to Dr. Yager for a tummy tuck consultation. He was very friendly and answered all my questions. Although he charged a hefty fee, I would gladly pay more because he seems to have alot of knowledge about tummy tucks. He was very honest with me and said if I was... READ MORE

Dr. Parker is quite possibly the worst physician that I have ever had the misfortune of meeting.. If you have a desire for plastic surgery, I beg you to please use another plastic surgeon. If the surgery doesn't go as planned or if there are ANY complications afterwards, you may as well start... READ MORE

My final countdown begins and 20 days and counting! I have really enjoyed the stories, pictures (before, during and after) those sharing their fears for the unknown, the battle with weight and quitting smoking in order to have the surgery, working extra to save the money to finally be where you...

Time to do something for me! :) Super nervous but excited. I don't work during the summer so hence the reason for my surgery date. I am concerned about the pain so I am hoping a can tolerate it. There is such a variety of responses to how the pain really is that I don't know for sure what to... READ MORE
