5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
37 Years Old, Two Kids, One C-section an Appendectomy. Had a Tummy Tuck with Liposuction of the Flanks an Thighs - Edina, MN
I have had numerous consultations and felt comfortable with Dr. Philbin immediately. He listened to my concerns and set realistic expectations but so far (which is only day one!) has surpassed them. Looking forward to updating throughout this journey.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
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...
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
Dr. Philbin w/Edina plastic surgery
Dr Philbin was fantastic. Straight forward with expectations for results. Answered all my questions. Made me feel comfortable with my choice in size and procedure.
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...
4 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
The Edina Plastic Surgery office is very nice! Everyone is very supportive and understanding. I felt a great deal of guilt and vanity while I struggled with the decision to do it or not. The Edina staff was very supportive and understanding. Dr. Philbin is excellent in what he does and explains things very well. I am only 10 days out of surgery, but I am very happy with the results.
5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
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......
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...
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...
