5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Highly recommend Dr. Philbin & Edina Plastic Surgery

Dr. Philbin is absolutely wonderful. He takes the time to discuss everything in detail, and will give you his honest opinion. He shows he cares every time he sees you. He is a fabulous doctor! I am only 11 days post op after having a tummy tuck, so far I am very satisfied! Dr. Philbin and all of the team at Edina Plastic surgery are very caring and inviting people, and will treat you with...

Mommy Makeover!!! - Edina, MN

10 more days until my tummy tuck and breast implants! Nervous and scared of the pain! But so excited to see my results in a few weeks. I am going with 650/675cc smooth round implants since I had a previous breast reduction and I have very wide breasts. That way they get filled back up after having 4 kids

40 Years Old, 3 Kids, Deflated B/c Going with 600 Silicone Unders! Edina, MN

I have looked at tons of people's reviews and found them helpful so I decided to post mine. I saw Dr a Philbin from Edina plastic surgery in Minnesota for my second consultation today to finalize size and questions since my initial consultation. It was great to talk with him again and be reassured on my size. I initially chose 500-550 silicone but in my return visit I liked the 550s more so he...

37, Mother of 4 and Ready to Get my Body Back - Edina, MN

I have a consult scheduled at Edina Plastic surgery center on Nov 17th for a mommy makeover. I'm really excited but scared as hell too! I'm 5'11 and weigh 226. My heaviest weight was 267 with my 3rd pregnancy. Since having my last baby in April, I've been trying to loose more weight and have been successful and have lost 16 pounds since September. I carry most all of my weight in my stomach...

47 Year Old Mother of 4, Breast Lift, Saline Implants and Mini Tummy Tuck - Minneapolis, MN

I am only 10 days out of surgery, but I do feel more confident about myself and actually it almost feels like I recognize myself again. I never felt that the post baby and nursing body was mine, but rather something that I exchanged for having my beautiful babies. The first few days after surgery I was in a great deal of pain and was very tired. The pain has decreased steadily each day and...

33 Years Old 4 Kids Needs a Mommy Makeover - Edina, MN

I'm scheduled to have a mommy makeover in one week. I'm super excited but really scared of the recovery time and the time it's going to take to see the final results. Getting a breast lift and augmentation, tummy tuck and Lipo of the love handles. Any info would be appreciated! Need to know realistic expectations on recovery, results, things I need to buy for after the procedure. Etc......

I Couldn't Find Anyone Who's Before Pics Look Like Me! - Edina, MN

So I decided to add mine and write a review for other people. I find it hard to believe I am the only one with this scary skin! I lost 120 pounds 3 years ago, and although I wear a size 4 and am healthy this nasty flab and belly button rash are holding me back! Its hurts to run, looks like hell and my rash smells like an old man's dirty butthole at times. Lol. Long story short, I am getting an...

From NOT to HOT - Edina, MN

Hi tummy tuckers! About me: I'm 5'8 and between 140-143 lbs, size 2-4. I was overweight as a child, and morbidly obese during my teenaged years. As a junior in high school, I weighed 290 lbs. During my junior year, I decided to get skinny! (I really liked a guy at the time, so that helped my motivation ;) Unfortunately, being heavy my whole life I didn't understand diet/exercise in...
