4 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Technical Answer Makes Sense - Davenport, IA

I also had under lid and forehead. Satisfied with the cosmetic look but had not been prepared for not being able to read well for 6 weeks & constant dryness blurriness. It definitely smoothed the skin and opened the eyes even though the scar below one eye is still apparent. I expect that scar to go away much sooner than the ones in the scalp. good thing that I had been letting my hair grow...

395 cc gummy bear, 5'6" 115 lbs, Can't believe I'm doing this!!!

So...I used to be a very natural girl and would have never ever ever ever believed you if you told me I was going to even consider breast augmentation! But, alas, time has a funny way of changing things. I'm 5'6" and 115 lbs when I'm being good. I used to have a full B/small C cup that looked perky and cute. I never minded having a small chest and since I was pretty active/athletic I was...

40 Years Old Mini Lift and Implants - Davenport, IA

It's getting real! I go in for surgery on Wednesday, July 2. I am 5'4" and weigh 165. I will be getting a mini lift with 550cc gel implants on both sides. I got my labs and EKG done today and picked the prescriptions up last week. The doctor also gave me 2 optional (but highly recommended) prescriptions. They said they were optional because they were expensive and probably wouldn't be covered...

32a To32DDD :) - Davenport, IA

I wanted natural large looking breasts, but they never came in on their own. It's been 5 weeks since my surgery and I am very pleased! Finally a DDD! The best part is they look more natural every week. Most family members can't tell ! I wanted to go big and was confused on size and shape. Dr van Raalte really paid attention to my body size, shape, and personality making the best choice for me...

Partial Rib Removal & Breast Aug - Davenport, IA

Had xphoid process sticking out too far my whole life, and my chest was very small making it even more prominent.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Mini TT with muscle repair and lipo to flanks.

I've had two consultations with my fav PS. I thought I could just do lipo but was informed to look the way I want I needed a mini tt. It scared me at first, I went home and did a lot of research. I love the results but am terrified of the scar. I'm looking for things to do to help it look it's best. My dr recommended using local to save cost. I'm a little nervous about it he assures me...

Full Tummy Tuck with Umbilical Hernia Repair - Davenport, IA

I have been unhappy about the look of my stomach after 4 children. I had always just figured I would live with it. I recently found out I have an umbilical hernia and I know that eventually that would have to be addressed. So, I figured...what the heck, let's fix this mess! :) I am very excited to feel good in my own skin again. I figured I would add a few pictures that give the FULL...
