29 Year Old Lost 80 Lbs and Had 2 Pregnancies. Anchorage, AK

This was my first surgery ever. I was extremely nervous. But I was prepared mentally what to expect. I have been needing this surgery for years. I get rashes and irritation from daily routines. My flap needed to go!! I trusted my doctor which made things better. I went to surgery center at 8am and was in surgery at 9:30am. Woke up at 11am. I was not a lot of pain. Just some from muscle repair....

45 Y/o Mom of 3, Ready to Say Goodbye to Padded Bras. Anchorage, AK

After a couple decades, and several consultations I'm finally ready to pull the trigger. I'm a 36 A, & have wore padded bras for way to long. I had a second consultation with a plastic surgeon that my friend recommended on April 2. I had a hard time with the sizers choosing between the 375 & 400. Thankfully the doctors assistant helped me with making a decision to go with the Silicone Mentor...

My Tummy Tuck Surgery - Anchorage, AK

After years of being overweight I finally dropped 30+lbs with the help of a personal trainer. Even though I slowly lost weight my stomach Alway got in the way- was never able to do a full sit-up. I pretty much held all my weight around my abdominal area. After years of saving I finally decided to get the surgery of my dreams. I couldn't be happier with my choice of surgeon to make my dreams...

33 Yrs Old, 4 Kids, 3 C-sections.....found my RX for a Tighter Future - Anchorage, AK

At this point I am just counting the days to my TT and BA to take care of what the gym and weight loss has not. Normal fears > scars, implant sizing, recovery..... Maintained 50 lb weight loss for over two years after my last baby (12 yr old, 8 yr old, 4 yr old, and 2.5 yr old) and still feel like I need some extra help to love my body again. Main areas of concern: belly button to c-section...
