5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Bye, Bye Extra Tummy! - Albuquerque, NM

I finally did it, it's been 2 days since my surgery, June 1st, and I'm very happy I did, though I have to admit the pain is incredible, everything hurts, my muscles were repaired so it really hurts to do anything, my back hurts from being hunched over and I have short breaths that bother me because I get a pain in my chest. But my incision isn't as bad. I will put before and after...

YAY!!! My Surgery is March 2! - Albuquerque, NM

As the mother of five I have my fair share of stretch marks and saggy skin. I also have an abdominal wall seperation that needs to be repaired. So when my GP said that I could wait for a little over a year to get my seperation fixed or I could see a dr in town to see if it could be done sooner, I jumped at the opportunity. I have wanted a tummy tuck for some time and have always wanted larger...

No More Wrinkles! Life is Short So I Did it - Albuquerque, NM

Thought about plastic surgery fo years... just lost my Mother and brother and thought to myself, life is too short, do something for myself. I did, and the outcome has been great. Didn't need pain pills after the Browlift/Blepharopasty... Outcome is unbelievable, better than I expected!!!

Amazing Results. Had to Live With a Round Belly For Decades - Albuquerque, NM

I had lived with a round belly for decades. No matter how much weight I lost, it just would not go away. I was so discouraged because I could not bend over to tie my shoes, or feel accomplished in my yoga class. I had begun to feel hopeless, so when I went to see Dr. Hopkins I wanted to see if I could get a result that would have me feeling better about how I look in my clothes and move about...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Augment with a Lift :) - Albuquerque, NM

I had a breast augmentation with a very much needed lift. I could not stand looking in the mirror everday and seeing uneven saggy breasts :( I am in my mid 20's with one child. I lost a significant amount of weight the year prior and it seemed to eliminate most of my breast tissue. I was so disgusted with it that it was effecting my personal life, My self esteem was the lowest it had ever been...

Awesome DR! - Albuquerque, NM

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Extremely Happy with Results - Albuquerque, NM

I recommend breast reduction to everyone. If you have large breasts, you would not believe how wonderful it feels to get rid of them.

Highly Recommend my Dr - Had Breast Augmentation, Eyelids Done, and Tummy Tuck - Albuquerque, NM

I completed all of my procedures to make me feel better. I have three children so between breast feeding and pregnancies, I didn't feel the same. While I was not overweight, nor am I currently overweight, the pregnancies had caused stretched skin that could not be repaired without a procedure. In addition, the breast feeding made my breasts saggy and small. The eye lid procedure was just...

My Results Far Exceeded my Expectations - Albuquerque, NM

Three years ago I had a tummy tuck and it is a very painful surgery. I have had six children and several hernias. There are not enough words to explain how good i feel and strong since I had this done. There are scars involved and a lot of pain but don't let this scare you. When you heal up it's amazing. All my fears went out the window the day of surgery because of how the staff...

Got my New Boobies - Albuquerque, NM

After breast feeding and pumping for twins for one year my boobies were sacks. Did I NEED it? no. Did I WANT it? I think so. It's been 2 weeks and my body is recovering slowly. I am 5 8' and 135lbs. I got 300cc silicone boobs and they have not dropped yet. My biggest issue is the pain I have in both my arms. It's like nerve tingling and I am praying it goes away as my body...
