5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
Dr. Steinmetz and his staff have been a tremendous help to me during my reconstruction process after having a double mastectomy. They have helped me emotionally as well as doing an awesome job on my reconstruction.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
I had my tummy tuck exactly 1 year ago and now I had my breast reduced. I was extremely excited about my tummy tuck but after 5 weeks I popped some internal stitches and have suffered every since. My breast however is quit different. I was a 36DD and only wanted a lift but my insurance would only pay for a reduction and dictated how much had to be removed. I am 3 weeks post open and not...

I have had 3 children, and really want a tummy tuck. But my husband thinks I'm being ridiculous. I've already scheduled my TT for May 31. This is causing a bit of a riff between us. I'm also having a breast lift and reduction that will be covered by my insurance. I've been wanting this for a long time. He just doesn't understand. I'm soooooooooo scared! I'm...
After years of sucking it in I decided it was time to do something about it. I so wanted my flat tummy back and no matter how much weight I lost the bulge was still there. 2 c-sections will leave muscles damaged and the scar was horrible. I am 54 years old and I want to look good in my clothes. So why not?I was not prepared for the down time. I hate the drains and can't figure out how to...
