5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

52 Yr Old 6 Children - Schenectady, NY

Dr. Barach is the greatest. I am so excited with the results and they keep getting better as I heal. I have had no why did I do this moments. I had two procedures. Tummy tuck and breast implants at the same time. My tummy tuck was sort of one sided since I had had an accident 2years ago and several surgeries. Dr Barach was able to make my stomach flat and matching on both sides. Swelling...

52 Year Old Really over Due Mommy Make over - Schenectady, NY

This is more like a grandma makeover for me I have been waiting a very long time to do this and I'm very excited. I have a 22 year old daughter she was born a c-section I ended up gaining a lot of weight. Last year I had weight loss surgery and lost over 80 pounds. I am 5'5" and currently weigh around 130. I am a 36B and hoping to be a full C. I talk to Dr Barach about 350 cc or 400 cc...

Very Happy with the Care That I Received from Dr Barach and His Staff - Schenectady, NY

Absolutely well worth it. Wish I had done it alot sooner. Dr Barach and his staff are wonderful, they make you feel so comfortable, great job, very, very happy with the results!!!!! The procedure went well as expected, I did exactly what I was told to do and not to do. I did not have alot of pain at all, recovery went very well. I would recommend Dr Barach to anybody that wants to enhance...

So Excited! 2-step Process from TT to Lipo, May 23rd!! - Schenectady, NY

I had a TT in October of 2012 and decided to put off the Lipo (hips, saddlebags that extend slightly under my butt, too). I think I am going to like that I have done this in two steps... The TT recovery was tougher than I expected since my "fleur de lis" incision opened up a little since I had a bit of seroma... I had more fat than skin, so I was advised ahead of time that it could happen so I...

TT on March 22, 2013 So Worth It - Schenectady, NY

My tummy problems began when I was 22 days old, in 1950. No that is not a misprint.I was born two months premature. At 20 days I began projectile vomiting. After a couple of days a diagnosis was made, pyloric stenosis. Surgery was performed. That surgery left my midsection a mess. As a child and teen I was cursed with a huge vertical scar surrounded by bulging flesh. Nothing like being a teen...

So happy with my results! - Schenectady, NY

After nursing four children, I was left with one breast noticeably larger than the other. It took alot for me to go see a plastic surgeon. One I did not want to be judged and two I don't like to selfishly spend money on myself. I was nervous about the procedure and recovery time due to my busy family and work life. The procedure went smooth and healing time was quicker than I expected. I look...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Great Experience with Dr. Barach - Schenectady, NY

I have wanted a Tummy Tuck since fat accumulation that never improved after pregnancy, regardless of exercise and diet- including going down to a smaller size and lower weight than I started at before my first pregnancy. I was in the best hands under Dr. Barach and his team. They work together to ensure your comfort while in their hands- the entire team of professionals in his office treats...

34 Yr Old Mom of 4 Full Tummy Tuck - Schenectady, NY

I contemplated having a tummy tuck for many years but wanted to make sure my family was complete. I decided to book when baby number 4 was 2years old. My children were all over 9lbs and natural births. I have always been very petite ranging from 100-116lbs. My stomach was very stretched out and I had a pretty severe diastasis recti that exercise alone could not fully repair to my...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Excellent Experience with Dr. Barach, Would Recommend to Anyone! - Schenectady, NY

There were certain parts on my body that I couldn't loose the weight on, no matter how much I worked out. My liposuction procedure turned out far better than I had ever expected. At the time of my surgery I was 30 years old and in fairly good shape. I'd always had an issue with the size of my upper thighs and lower stomach. Going to the gym didn't seem to make a difference...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Incredible Results...Top of the Line Professionalism - Schenectady, NY

I had lost substantial weight and had never had a flat belly. Breasts were getting longer and longer with age. It was time to pay attention to me :) I had a tummy tuck and a breast lift and the results are incredible. It has been less than 6 months and the scarring is almost tranparent. I never took a pain killer! Not even right after surgery. I wish you could see the results for...
