5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Turn Back Time - New York, NY

It was definitely worth it. After 3 children and losing 50 pounds I had a lot of excess skin that diet and exercise didn't help. After the surgery I have flat abdomen and a curvy waist line. There is a scar of course across the hip line that looks like a C section. With massage using silicon treatment and good wound care you can minimize it. Recovery is a bit tough. You will need at least 10...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

The Start of Enjoying my Roaring Twenties....whats Left - New York, NY

This has been long overdue. I wanted a breast reduction far before I knew that minimizing your breast surgically was even a option. I received more No's then Yes. I was never told I wasn't a candidate just never found the right doctor, at the right time who was able to see my vision. I refused to go under the knife if I was unable to get the results or even come close to what I wanted....

I always had very small breasts but after havjng 2 children and gaining and losing an immense amount of weight my breasts became very small sagging pockets of skin.

5 out of 5 stars Thigh Lift

New Beginnings - Manhattan, NY

After losing 135 pounds I was left with excessive amounts of loose skin on my thighs. Even though I am at my goal weight and extremely active there was nothing I could do to get rid of the horrible excess skin on my thighs. It was so upsetting and sometimes depressing to have worked so hard and still feel terrible about the way my legs looked. I didn't wear shorts when I was heavy and still...

To start out, I have wanted to have a TT for a long time now. I've been trying to find a way that I could possibly afford to have it done.

Out with Old and In with the New - New York, NY

So I've been wanting a Tummy Tuck since after my daughter was born in September 2007 but I always thought I would not be able to afford a $10, 000 Tummy Tuck.
