5 out of 5 stars Male Tummy Tuck

Men Need Tummy Tucks Too and I Love Mine! - Beachwood, OH

Thirteen years ago, I lost 100 pounds after gastric bypass surgery. I committed myself to a lifestyle of healthier living and exercise.

As a runner or at the pool, I was embarrassed to take my shirt. I decided it was time to do something...

"Twins in Mid 40s, Back to Pre-pregnancy Weight but Abs Never Came Back, Much Needed Tummy Tuck" - Beachwood, OH

I wanted to get back in my jeans and have confidence again after twin pregnancy. I went to Dr. Michelow and had the surgery. Surgery was combined with Hysterectomy took about 4 hours. It went smoothly. Woke with 2 drains, large incision and some expected soreness which improved quite a bit after 10 days. It is now 2 months later and I am back to daily routine (was back to work in 5 weeks)...
