5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

42 Yr Workaholic Mom Learning to Love Myself - Folsom, CA

I'm a 42 year old former athlete, certifiable workaholic mother of two kids who gained a lot of weight with pregnancy and then developed polycstic ovarian syndrome which essentially made it impossible to lose weight despite trying every diet and exercise plan known to man. A week before my 40th Birthday I underwent a vertical sleeve gastrectomy surgery and lost 100lbs. It was a lot of...

Dr. Clark is the best! Look no further!

Dr. Christa Clark is amazing! I had already heard great things about her so I decided to go in for a consultation thinking I would take some time on my decision. Instead I immediately scheduled my appointment with her caring staff. She did a mommy makeover - tummy tuck, breast lift and lipo. She knew exactly what I wanted and listened to my concerns. My goal was to look as natural as...

52 Years Old, 2 Great Kids, Need a Tummy Tuck, Breast Lift and a Bit of Lipo to Get "Me" Back - Folsom, CA

Hello all you wonderful Real Self folks (and lurkers)! I am a 52 year old mother of 2 great kids (son, now 22, dtr, now 18). I'm 5'2" and recently lost 40lbs (on a Ketogenic diet, like the first part of Atkins...). I tried for years to lose "the pooch" after the birth of my dtr and was miserable because of my failure at diet and exercise. Within the last year I somehow stumbled across...

She is Wonderful!!! Look No Further for a Doctor. - Folsom, CA

I had breast augmentation surgery in March 2013. I was reluctant and nervous, but am thrilled with the results and was 110% satisfied with Dr. Clark and her office. I have no regrets at all and would definitely recommend the procedure and refer her a million times over to do the surgery. It was an amazing and incredibly relaxing experience. She is the most approachable and accommodating...

Stellar Before and After Care... Wonderful Person As Well. - Folsom, CA

I was not happy with my torso after having three children and always felt uncomfortable in shorts or a swim suit. My fiance got me into scuba diving. So I was going to the gym and not seeing any change in my tummy area no matter how much I dieted and worked out. What sent me over the edge was seeing a picture of myself in a 7mm wetsuit from my certification dive trip to Monterey. I wondered...

Going for Natural Look - Folsom, CA

I think I have had every emotion associated with breast augmentation ranging from deep opposition to radical jealousy. It has been ten years since I had my first breast aug consult. Now, just a couple months shy of turning 30, I am taking the plunge and it is for all the right reasons. I lost a lot of weight when I was very young and although I can't be sure, I do think it may have...

Very Real Doctor - Expertly Trained - And She is a Woman - Folsom, CA

All pros here - I did not have one negative thing to say about the process or the doctor I selected. I always knew I wanted boobs - I just waited till after I had kids and then did it for myself. Now I can fill out shirts I never could before - I can wear silhouettes that I never could before - I have curves - it is fun! The only con is that I am extremly active and it took me a long time...

My Tummy Tuck/Lipo Experience - 200+ Lbs. - Folsom, CA

Ever since Extreme Makeover was first on TV I wanted a tummy tuck and lipsuction on my thighs. I'm 5'3" with an athletic build. Thanks to heredity, I've always had the pooch in front and shelf butt. Between the Freshman 15+ 20 extra and having two babies over the past 15 years, I've bounced between 150 and 225. Before the tummy tuck I weighed in at 208. I knew even if I...

Dr. Clark is Incredible! - Folsom, CA

I went to see Dr. Clark after 6 years of living with botched breast implants (done by a different doctor). During the consultation I instantly knew I wanted to go with her! Not only does her work speak for itself, she puts you at ease and really listens to what you want. From the consultation, to surgery, to all of the post-ops the staff was so caring and everything went so well. I got a lift and new breast implants that doubled in size, which are now perfect for my frame. She had to cut muscle to make a more of a pocket which my previous surgeon did not do correctly. My experience was great and I now love my gorgeous new breasts! Thank you Dr. Clark and Staff!! L Morgan

Very Happy with Results - Folsom, CA

I was a 34c in my early twenties and as I got into my early fifties, I had morphed into a 36DD. They were a lot to lug around and I decided to make a change. I am pretty active physically and felt that reducing my size would improve my all around quality of life. The procedure has less downtime than I thought with not too much discomfort. I was back at the office within four days-being...

Breast Implants and Breastfeeding: Here It Is

If you have been considering a breast augmentation but are concerned that getting implants now might impact your ability to breastfeed in the future, you aren’t alone; a lot of women share this concern. The results of a study recently published in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, should ease your mind a bit. The study compared breastfeeding success rates for women with silicone breast implants to those without implants. Both first-time moms and those with multiple children w...

Am I Mommy Makeover Ready?

Having kids is a great adventure—often joyful, sometimes challenging, and totally worth it. But the effects of this adventure on your breasts and body—sagging, deflated breasts, stretched skin, and a still-bulging belly—are not necessarily things you want to keep as mementos. A mommy makeover can undo these changes, and many new moms can’t wait to get back their flat tummies and perky breasts. Having had two kids myself, I understand the desire to look and f...

The DOs & DON’Ts of Cosmetic Surgery Recovery = HOW TO RECOVER

Your surgery is done: Yipee! Now onto the second stage which is RECOVERY. View recovery like it’s your job (because it is!) and remember that downtime is temporary. You’ll be back in the gym in no time.DO take your pain meds for the first day or two. A lot of patients hate taking pills—and I totally respect that. But even if you’re not in much pain after surgery, pain meds will help you rest comfortably, and rest is key during early recovery. It’s probably fine to switch to Ibuprofen (...

The DOs & DON’Ts of Cosmetic Surgery Recovery = HOW TO PREPARE

With my own patients, a big chunk of our pre-surgery consultation time is spent going over the all-important recovery process. The particulars I give to each patient vary, depending on procedure, lifestyle, and medical history. However, there are some universal DOs and DON’Ts that all patients should adhere to when recovering from cosmetic surgery. In this first article I will talk about how to prepare for your upcoming surgery. DO eat a balanced diet filled with nutritious whole foods.A hea...

Recovery Timeline After Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation has become one the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States. Last year in 2015 over 300,000 surgeries were performed. I personally perform about 25 – 30 breast augmentation surgeries per month. The recovery time for this surgery can be on the simple side, compared to say a Tummy Tuck. That being said let me preface this article by clarifying that each individual will have a different experience. I can give you a general guideline of a typical recovery after...
