5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

I Finally Have my Flat Tummy

Dr Fischer does not have many reviews or before and after photos online. He has lots of the photos in his office. He will show you photos of women that are similar to your size. He explained the entire process to me very patiently and answered all my questions. I had no idea that women who do not have enough skin to stretch will end up with two bellybuttons. One is the old one turned into a small vertical scar above your bikini line. He said that may be a possibility with me. I'm glad that ultimately it was not, so I only have one bellybutton. His bedside manner is very caring and sweet. After I awakened from the anesthesia he visited me in the recovery unit. He told me I only have one bellybutton and that i was pulled tight. He also joked that I woke up. (I had asked him before surgery not to let me die and that I wanted to wake up) I don't recall what else he said as i was still feeling out of it. He stopped by again to check up on me the next morning. I was surprised to look down and see my newly flat stomach. He does require an overnight stay at the hospital. I had a pain pump that kept me almost pain free. My pain level was about 4 out of 10. It was not pain but mostly discomfort when I tried to move. That was not so bad. My c-section from years before, was more uncomfortable. I have uploaded before and after photo. Im pushing 7 weeks post op. I am still very swollen and expect improvement in contour as time goes by. My scar is red but flat. He said it would somewhat fade over time. I recommend Dr. Fischer to everyone thinking of a tummy tuck. So far, I am happy with my results. He explained the entire process to me very patiently and answered all my questions. Dr Fischer was honest in letting me know that I may not look perfect at the end, but he can only try to deliver the results I want. Reminded me that I have to be realistic in the outcome. That comment was what ultimately made me decide to make him my surgeon after interviewing other board certified surgeons. He made me feel that he loves his job, was not after my money and did not pressure me to have the procedure. Unlike many surgeons I previously visited with.

Breast Augmentation and Liposuction - New Haven, CT

I am pretty athletic but I have some stubborn fat on my inner thighs and flanks u cannot seem to get rid of. I decided to look into this a month or so ago and when I met Dr. Fuscher, I knew he was the one who was going to do my surgery. He is very thorough, detailed and set realistic expectations. So a bit more about me, I am 46, I have 2 beautiful teenagers 14 & 12, and have been...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

HP 450 Silicone Implants Under the Muscle with Periareola Lift

I have always wanted larger breasts, my shape needed them. So after breastfeeding three children, a little over a year for each, it was time. I am turning 40 in a few months and knew I had to do something now. I knew I would use the same doctor who did my TT in 2007, since he did an excellent job. I actually had my third child in 2010 and it still looks great, even he says its amazing. I am...
