5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

31 Yr Old Mother of 2 and is So Pleased So Far with the Results of Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift

He is such a perfectionist and down to earth Dr. He made me feel very comfortable about the procedure I was wanting done and he even went the extra mile to do touch ups on me in the OR that I didn't know even know he was going to do, just for my results would be even better!!!!

1 out of 5 stars Mini Tummy Tuck

Consultation Review: Confussing

I went in for a consult. The receptionist was very nice. As well as the doctor. But I'm very confused because I was told I need a mini tummy tuck, and can get liposuction for the upper tummy. I have never had children and all the other consults I've gone to I was told I can get the full tummy tuck. Question is doesn't the far come back With lipo. Someone please help!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Post TT Success!!

Dr. Telepun was the first and only dr I had a consult with before deciding to get a tummy tuck. Little to no wait times. Very friendly and attentive nurse. And he was very willing to answer all questions, but there weren't many after his extensive explanations and examination. He actually took the time to look over my problem area during the consult and talk about some different options for me. The surgery day went great. And all the follow ups after were also great. I have a hard time reviewing something unless I have lots of complaints, so I tend not to do reviews unless I'm unhappy with the service or product. In this case, I want to do a review even though I am happy with the result because I know the reviews are part of what helps someone choose their PS! Also, gives more weight to the PS's words when they answer the Q&A's. Dr. Telepun fixed me. I had what I consider a large belly due to diastasis recti and he made me flat again! And he made me a new belly button! The scar is low and placed where I wanted it. And thin! I am 4 weeks post op... no complications, makes sure to see you a lot post-TT to ensure all is healing correctly, and seems to want a happy client! I have had experience with another PS where there was virtually no follow-up. He never asked to see how the 'work' turned out later. Dr. Telepun wants to make sure you are happy, feeling well considering the healing going on, and wants a good result in the end! He is patient and experienced. No complaints!

Finally Time to Do Something for Me! - Decatur, AL

My initial appointment was very informative. I was very afraid walking in and talking about my body but Dr. Telepun made it an easy process. I left feeling excited and looking forward to getting out and into the world again. Dr. Telepun allowed me to ask questions about everything I could think of. He explained everything very well and asked about my postpartum depression and was willing to discuss my medication for postpartum and how that could impact, if at all, my procedure.

40 and Tired of the Poochy Belly - Decatur, AL

Dr. Telepun is extremely knowledgeable, cares about what his patients really want and need, he's very realistic about what he can do for his patients, and he's even going out of his way to do my surgery on a Friday when he usually doesn't work on Fridays.
