5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

7 months post op (4/1/2014)

I'm hoping to get a TT with MR done sometime this spring, hopefully in early April *fingers crossed*. I've had two consultations; one not so good, and the other pretty darn good. I have my third (and hopefully) final consult this Wednesday! This is definitely happening, and I am soooooo excited! Thank you ladies for all of your reviews. I love reading them. If I have any free time during...

52yrs Old 3 Kids and Flabby. Kansas City, KS

I Was always very self conscious of tummy and big boobs... This surgery was much more major than I had expected. I had an allergic reaction to the binder (1 in a million) which set me back. Had a diaper rash under the boobs, horrible constipation (10 days) .. I would do it again but would have loved to have had a timeline of what to expect day by day... All in All Dr Barnthouse walked me...

Updated photos - Kansas City

I am a 45 year old woman who is 5'5" and I weigh 150 pounds. I am within my weight range but at the top of it so I would like to lose around 10 to 15 pounds still. I had 3 children all c-section, an appendectomy, my gall bladder removed (from my navel) and some cysts off my ovaries also taken out through my belly button. One of my babies was over 10 pounds and to me that is like carrying 2...

TT & Lipo Review

First my recommendation would be to please do all of the research you can do on this procedure. I did an extensive amount of research and still was not prepared for the amount of time I was going to be down and the pain, depression, anxiety. In the end it will be worth it. Currently I am POD 12, but it is only today that I turned the corner of thinking that I made a huge error in judgement...

New Bikini Pic!!!!!- Kansas City, MO

I have been reading reviews for at least four years now, since the birth of my first child. I am a fairly small girl, 5'2" and 120 pounds. I've had two almost-9 pound babies and they both resulted in c-sections. I gained a lot of weight fast with my first baby, and after that I was never really able to lose the skin and stretch marks. I exercise with a trainer a few times a week, but after...

26yr Old Tummy Tuck and Breast Augmentation - Overland Park, KS

I'm 26, 2 c sections and was overweight most of my life. I lost 105 lbs and decided I wasn't happy with body still and my stomach needed lots of work. So researched doctors in my area and after much looking and saving I found a doctor. Dr. Barnthouse is wonderful and so far pleased. I just had tummy tuck and breast augmentation done today and I'm in lots of pain and not seen my tummy yet bc...

4 Wks PO and Doing Great After Ftt/lipo on Legs and Flanks - Overland Park, KS

Well, it's been 4 weeks today since the big day. I have been back to work now for 10 days and everything has been pretty easy so far. The first couple days I was in moderate pain and stopped taking the percocet around day 5. After that just extra strength tylenol. I have been so fortunate- no hunchback and was standing almost straight at 4 days and standing completely straight a little bit...

34 Years Old, Mom of 4, 275cc Mentor Moderate Plus Silicone - Kansas City

I've always had small to average breasts; they were pretty proportionate to my body. And I was perfectly happy with them. They were a good size for an active lifestyle, but could be played up with a push up. In fact, I didn't really ever *think* about them. Fast forward 8 years and 4 breastfed babies later, they are all I can think about. Well, the lack of their presence is all I can...

37yo, 5'4", 180lbs....no More Rolls! - Leawood, KS

I am scheduled for a tummy tuck with lipo with Dr Joseph Barnthouse this Thursday morning. Here are some before pics....disgusting! ESPECIALLY my back! I doubt this procedure is going to do anything for my back but this is honestly the first time I've looked at it while naked. I'm much more excited to have a flatter appearance in the front (no rolls!) when I'm dressed. I'm excited to get...

Had BA Silicone Gel Implants 10 Days Ago, Had a HUGE Bear Hug, Felt a Burst in R Breast, a Lot of Pain, Now my R Breast is Hard?

Most likely not a concern of implant rupture. At 10 days my concern would be if a small bleed started (hematoma). Hardness would be indicative of this. READ MORE
