Scheduled for 8/6 for Flatness - Tucson, AZ

I am 55, 5'9" and have been thinking about this for some time. Reading the reviews have me nervous because of the pain and swelling. Scheduled for 8/6 and my PS requires all TT to spend the 1st night at her facility. It seems from the reading the road to recovery is after 4 - 6 weeks with less pain, but still swelling. Realizing everyone is different, if someone could direct me to a review...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Back in my Birthday Suit - Tucson, AZ

Want to be healthy again! I love my PS, she was very understanding of my motivation for the explantation. She is the PS that put my 2nd set in about 9 years ago. Hadn't connected the dots with my health issues yet and had the new set put in due to capsular contraction. When I had my lightbulb moment after extensive research I called her, set up a consult and was scheduled for the explantation...

The Best - Tucson, AZ

I gave birth to 5 children and didn't take care of my body. About 3 years ago I had liposuction, tummy tuck (extensive almost a body lift), tighten my upper stomach and smoothed out the top of my thighs. I am so happy with my results.

3 years post explant update! Feels great to be me.. now implant free! Living life natural and happy! :)

I had my implants placed in 2006 when I was young and was only really concerned with the present, I didn't think about the future and made a decision I now regret! I was a 34A prior to augmentation and like most of us who have implants, I had them placed for a confidence boost and to better fill out my clothes and bathing suits. I liked my augmented breasts at first when I was in my 20's, but...

24 Year Old, Mother of 1, Needs Them Out! - Tucson, AZ

I am very excited to finally be moving forward with removing these foreign objects from my body! I have been considering having them removed for over 2 years, but I became pregnant and that put all of this to a halt. My son is now 8 months old and my breast are saggy and bottoming out. I am NOT happy with them and am ready to have them removed asap. I met with Dr. Maxwell today and she advised...

Tummy Tuck with Lipo - Tucson, AZ

The Procedure: I had my procedure schedule for just about forever but when it came time for my two week pre-op I started freaking out. The night before I googled "bad tummy tuck results". Not a good idea. Thankfully the doctor’s office is used to nut jobs so they were able to calm me down. The day of the procedure I really knew that I was in good hands. The anesthesiologist made sure to...

1 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty-I Had a Few Issues but Now I Have So Many More. Tucson, AZ

My goals from surgery were to reduce a bump on the bridge and to reduce the length of my nose. I liked the look from the front, but I hated the side. Post-op there were so many issues. I formed a polly-break, a bulbous tip, internal valve collapse, asymmetric nostrils, my upper lip has fallen and makes my smile look unnatural and strange, there is a dent in the side of the bridge sort of like...

Best cosmetics urgent in Tucson!

I have been a patient of Dr. Maxwell for about 15 years. I have had a rhinoplasty , my eyes and my forehead lifted. Last October I had a face and necklift.

She is also sweet and nurturing to her patients, the staff is...
