Septopladty/rhinoplasty - Hamilton, ON

Best thing I ever did- no regrets, totally worth it! The surgery was virtually painless, the biggest problem was breathing with packing in nose. Even after packing was out on Post op day 2, breathing was difficult fir probably a month due to swelling and scanning- saline nasal spray was a lifesaver. Bruising was minimal, downtime was probably a week- overall it really wasn't a bad experience-...

40 Year Old That Just Lost 120 Pounds - Hamilton, ON

I lost 120 pounds after a gastric by-pass. After maintaining my weight loss for 2 years I had decided it was time to remove the excess skin. I also did a breast life at the same time. I recovered very quickly and was in little to no pain with the procedure. I love the outcome, super flat tummy. I have no regrets about my decision and would recommend Dr. Hynes to anyone who inquires about any...

42 Years, 2 Kids, Hysterectomy, Competitive Physique Competitor - Hamilton, ON

Was getting to hard to tape and glue the tummy pooch into a suit. As a personal trainer and always being in the spot light of being unflawed it became truly difficult to hide that my mid section looked so bad. After 2 children and a hysterectomy it was time to get this flap of skin gone. I'm a week post op and am feeling great! I'm just over 2 weeks post op, drains and tubes are out woohoo...
