5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

38 Years Old, Mom of 2, Much Needed Tummy Tuck for Myself! - Winston Salem, NC

I needed a boost in my self esteem! Since having my first child my stomach has always looked this way. I have tried diet and exercise but was never able to be completely satisfied because of the loose skin and bulge from my mussel damage. I'm only 2 weeks post OP so I'm not sure how I feel about it yet?? I would have to say so far I would recommend, I'm just concerned about the bulge in my...

Thrilled! - Winston Salem, NC

Dr. Hampton Howell did a tummy tuck and lipo on my abdomen last September and did an EXCELLENT job! Dr. Howell was kind, caring, and took great interest in my health and healing process. I had a little bit of an issue with one of my drains. Dr. Howell was not in the office that day, but came by just to check on it. He goes the extra mile, has a fantastic staff, and the end result is...

42 Years Old Breast Reduction - Winston Salem, NC

I'm 5'4" and 155 lbs. wearing a 32 G - 32 I cup (depending on the brand of bra). These breasts were way to large and heavy. I found Dr Howell on line and went for a consult. I like him immediately and moved forward with his scheduling/insurance staff to schedule a reduction. His staff was fantastic and insurance approved my surgery very quickly and they scheduled me for Aug 3. I've never...

38 Year-old Mom, Breast Implant Removal with Lift - Winston-Salem, NC

I had two different sets of implants over the course of 14 years. The first set were submuscular saline, 350cc bags overfilled to 425cc. After breast feeding my daughter for a year, my breasts had begun to sag over the implant. Instead of getting a needed lift, I opted to go for 600cc subglandular cohesive gel implants. I did this because I was afraid of the scarring involved with a lift...

59 Years Old, Wanted to Look Refreshed - Winston-Salem, NC

Didn't like the way my skin was losing elasticity. Had those parenthesis. Thought about it for a year, did research on procedure and decided to reward myself after going through bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction. Procedure was painless and could see results immediately. I think it's worth it.

All my adult life I have been unhappy with my breasts. They were small and after having kids sagging. Dr. Howell gave me what I have always wanted and they do not look fake.
