5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

35 Years Old, After 2 Children - Calgary, AB

I had my last child 4 years ago and woke up every morning wondering how on earth I was going cover up by big tummy. That resulted in me wearing Spanx EVERYDAY. I knew from the moment I had my first child that my tummy would never be the same and I knew that it was time to do something about it. I had lost the extra weight and weighed less then before I got pregnant, after maintaining the...

My Breasts Are Perfect at Last - Calgary, AB

I first had a breast augmentation in back in Sept. 2002 by a highly recommended PS in Calgary. My first surgery was not successful and I had to go back for a revision to move down one breast. That surgery left me with a double contour and my nipples pointing in two different directions. A third surgery was done and it was far from perfect, but I had my fill of surgeries at that point. Fast...

Loved my surgeon and very happy with results! - Calgary, AB

********UPDATE********* I saw one Dr. for a consult and was not pleased. Ended up going to Calgary Alberta on May 13th and saw Dr. W and had my surgery preformed on May 25th! He did a FTT with Muscle repair. Im small to start with but it looks great! He did all my belly button stitches inside the belly button so the belly button looks great and the scar is nice and low. His...

Just Starting the Process! - Calgary, AB

After reading many reviews, forums, and talking to different women who have had their breast augmentations done in Calgary, I decided to book my consultation with Dr.Whidden. I’ve read from other women that they suggest going to at least three different consultations, but from my first consultation with this surgeon, I felt very confident that he will do a great job and I appreciated his...

Breast augmentation-330cc teardrop shape, silicone gel, high profile implants

I am 28, with no kids and I have ALWAYS had small boobs! I have always wanted bigger boobs. I've tried gel bras, water bras, push ups, double padded push ups, you name it I've tried it. I have finally made the decision to get breast implants as I am tired of hiding, covering up or being ashamed of my small chest. I am 5'6'', 130lbs, and my current shape would be "pear shaped" but that's...

33 Years Old, Mom of Three- Desperately Wanted a Tummy Tuck - Calgary, AB

I am a very fit person. I love working out. My biggest problem- the hangy flap of skin from having kids. I FINALLY decided I wanted to do something for myself and started researching surgeons. (First of all- they shouldn't call it tummy tuck- cause they don't tuck anything- they take it off....) I went for a few consultations and decided I wanted to go with Dr. Whidden. I was impressed by his...

Loving my new boobs!

I’m a 32 year old mother of 2, 5’5 and 110 lbs. I have a slim build but before kids used to wear a size 34C/32D bra. I used to always get compliments on my figure, especially my breasts. After having 2 kids I’m now down to a 32B. I finally got tired of looking like a boy so I bought 3 bombshell bras from Victoria’s Secret and have been wearing them for about 2 years now. Everyone I know ju...
