Ready for a New Body!

Hi RS, I've been "lurking" for a while now and after looking at countless reviews, photos, and results I've decided who/where my best option is... on to the DR I go! Ok, here's the "Tea" on me, get a cup... I'm pouring it up :) I'm 26 years young, 5'6' and about 210lbs (I do plan to lose, eating healthy and working out now) I have NO kids, I work and go to school both full time (please let...

Finally Decided to Do Something for Me!

I absolutely loved Dr Cochran and his staff. They were very reassuring and informative during my consultation. He said I was a perfect candidate for a tummy tuck. The deposit and booking process is so convenient. I can't wait until my procedure. Dr. Cochran and his office staff were very informative and reassuring. He explained the procedure and advised that I was a good candidate but also urged that it was not a license to go St whatever and no longer workout. I appreciated the candor. The booking process was very easy. Looking forward to my surgery date!

Dr. Cochran I'm 36 and tired of wearing Shapewear to Semi-Conceal This Belly!!!
