5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

38 Full TT with Lipo. Three Kids- Ready for a New Look - Atlanta, GA

Done having kids and just tired of being over weight. I am three weeks post op and feel good. It's hard, very hard to do with small kids but worth it. I am still heavier than I want to be but after 39 pound WL this was the right step for me. I met my surgeon through a friend and he was awesome. I knew he was the right one for me. I didn't do a lot of thinking I just went with my gut. He...

35 Year Old That Finally Made The Change. Alpharetta, GA

I've been wanting implants for 15 years and during that time, I've heard rave reviews about Dr. Bauer. I've actually seen his work and his natural results, so when it was time to finally get rid of these baby A cup breast, there was no doubt in my mind who I would call to perform my surgery. I'm 12 days post breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Bauer and I couldn't be happier with my recovery...

Very Satisfied with Results. Alpharetta, GA

Wonderful experience at the Swan Center, with Dr. Bauer, I wanted this surgery due to having a child and gravity! The process was so easy and they got me in very quickly from when I first emailed. Dr. Bauer is so personable and easy to talk to, I felt comfortable from the first moment that I met him. They were very upfront with pricing and options for payment. The price included everything,...

32 Yrs, 2 Breastfed Babies and After Shedding the Weight Wanted to Fill Up my Bra Again! - Alpharetta, GA

I was just looking to fill up my bras and after my babies and working out my boobs deflated. I was. Going for the natural look not big, I really like what I got! I am super happy I did it!

Almost Perfect - Alpharetta, GA

I gave him very little to work with--a little A cup to start with, and he gave me beautiful full C cups (I thought I wanted a B but he knew cup sizes better than I did) that no one can believe are not real. I wish I'd done it years ago. My implants are sub-muscular, 275cc silicone gel (gummy bear). My only complaint is that I wound up with one ripple in my cleavage, but it's pretty subtle and...

5 months and counting!

Hi, I'm 30 yrs old, I'm 4ft 9 and I weigh 117 pounds. My surgery is a gift to myself for my 31 bday. I just left my consultation, I thought I was a 34B, but the doctor said I was a cup. I have a 6 yr old son when I was pregnant I gained 17 pounds. My breast didn't get that much bigger. But as I get older they dropped and are smaller. I have wanted BA surgery for 13 years. I loved the doctor I...

Hello RealSelf ladies! I have been following many of the reviews on here for 6+ months. You ladies have really shown me the ups and downs of breast augmentation, and I'd love to share my experience in return. This site has been an invaluable resource thus far. I have contemplated breast augmentation for several years now, and I've finally decided to take the plunge. I had a consultation...

"4 Months Post Op - 36 Years Young with 2 Beautiful Kids (And a Wonderful Husband) in Need of Some Love on Top" - Alpharetta, GA

Hi Ladies! I'm sooo excited, and can't wait until the day that I get some love on top! I'm a 5"11, 160lb former collegiate athlete who has always wanted nice, full breasts to go along with the rest of my banging body! LOL! (Well, at least, it was banging before I had my 2nd child almost 3 yrs ago. I'm working out to get my 6-pack back by the summer!) I've always had small breasts (34A),...

30 Years Old Mother or 2, 135lbs, 5,"1" - Alpharetta, GA
