5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

38 Yrs Old, 2 Kids (C-sections), Always Embarrassed of my Tummy

I'm like many of you on here; finished with pregnancies, work out consistently, eat well, generally feel good about myself…except for my tummy. I've never had a flat stomach. Sure, when I was 16 years old and under 120 pounds it was flatter, but not flat. The women in my family just don't. Our midriffs are a problem. Couple that with two pregnancies which stretched my skin beyond repair, and...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

42 with 3 Children over the Course of 25 Years, Mommy Make Over Needed. Alpharetta, GA

I was a mom that worked out, ran marathons and kept very active. Since I began having children my body would alter between 20lbs of high and low weight but never would lose the mommy pouch and the side small handles. I always held my shape well but small things like love handles would remain. As years went on I lost tissue in my breast and I began the breast sag that could be hidden in bra but...

5 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants

24 Year Old, 5'4" , 120lbs, 350cc and 375cc Unders, Mentor Smooth Round Cohesive Gel Implants

This review is going to be a little strange because I'm going to try and condense my experience in the last 5 weeks in a paragraph or so. I decided on BA to increase the volume in my deflated breast. During my consultation my surgeon helped me decide on a 350cc round silicone cohesive gel implant to achieve my desired results. Dr Alderman is knowledgeable & personable; as soon as I met her I...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

5 days post op!! - Atlanta, GA

I have never had a flat tummy and this has been a life long dream of mine. I am very nervous, but know the end result will be great! I just took my shower with Antibacterial Soap. It's 10 hours to my surgery and I want to scream. What am I doing? I don't think I will be able to sleep tonight. I have looked at a lot of your stories and pictures and I am trying to stay inspired. Well, I am...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

31 Years Old, Finally... the Breast Augmentation That I Have Been Contemplating for Years - Alpharetta, GA

I am 31 years old, of Asian descent, 5'6", and a 34A/B... or shall I say, WAS a 34A/B. I always felt that my breasts were not proportional to the rest of my body. Clothes did not seem to fit right, bathing suits did not look good, sick and tired of purchasing super padded bras, and I could never get the right amount of cleavage for those sexy nights out ... or any for that matter. I have...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Breast Implants/ Liposuction, 50 Yr Old. Alpharetta, GA

I cannot be happier with the results!!!! I wanted more breast fullness (went with Mentor HP 325cc) that looked natural and a much needed lift. I am thrilled!!! I had liposuction on my anterior thighs and abdomen. I had to wear Spanx for 6 weeks but well worth it. I look so much better in clothes and bathing suit and feel much more confident.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

I had done much research - Breast Augmentation - Alpharetta, GA

I had done much research for a plastic surgeon & finally found Dr.Alderman. She has a great personality & makes you feel comfortable & cared for the whole time. I had the best experience with Dr.Alderman & her whole team. They are very caring & compassionate. I would highly recommend them. Also I had great results. There was no negatives about her. I drove 2.5 hrs just to have her for my surgeon, She has a great reputation & medical history. Couldnt say enough great things about her & her team.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

I Couldn't Have Chosen a Better Surgeon! - Alpharetta, GA

Getting a breast reduction was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am 49 years old and have hated my breasts for as long as I can remember. I honestly cannot think of a time when I ever felt good about them. Since my surgery, I no longer feel self-conscious in my clothes, or naked for that matter. I've lost a little bit of fullness since I lost approx. ten pounds after the surgery....

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

The Last Thing to Go After Losing 30 Pounds!! That Darn Tummy! - Alpharetta, GA

Hi, I'm 33 and my entire life I have been very athletic, played competitive sports throughout college and continued to be very very active throughout my adult years. I have always been chubby. I was a fat kid and grew up as a girl who hid it well. Pretty face, great hair and I could hide my tummy well. I would win the boys with my face but they wouldn't stick around...I have never worn a two...
