2 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Early 40's, 1 Child, Tummy Tuck & BA - Charleston, SC

There were some complications with my surgery, and I did not get my desired results. My drain was removed the 1st week, and soon after I developed a seroma and then my sutures opened up. I had open wounds for several weeks and it left a big mess. He promised me that we would do what he could for me to be satisfied, and he did some revisions, both on my abdomen and my flank lipo. They did not turn out well. I did not continue with him after that since I felt like I lost trust. He and his staff were kind and seemed compassionate and I really wanted things to work out with them. However, as much as I wish otherwise, I just cannot recommend him due to my poor results after the revisions. For more specifics and/ or pics look at my full review.

Rhino & B.A.- Def. Recommend! - Charleston, SC

After going to three consultations in the Charleston area, I was relieved to find Dr. Schimpf's practice. Dr. Schimpf's experience, education and manner reassured me that he would be the doctor I could trust to perform these two procedures. His background is in reconstruction which I think gives him a unique advantage to other doctors. I had a rhinoplasty and breast augmentation last week and...

46 Yea Old Male. Abs, Flanks and Moobs. Summerville, SC

I really was tired of the way my abs and moobs looked. After years of weight training these were still my trouble areas. I did a lot of research on smart lipo and what to expect. The before and after pictures looked promising. I had my procedure on Christmas Eve. When I arrived at my surgeon's office they gave me two Norcos to take. I was pretty relaxed and not worried before going in so I...

38 Year Old, 3 Kids, 3 Past C-Sections, So Ready for This TT!

I always knew I wanted a tummy tuck but was very scared to get one done. I have 3 kids ages 16, 12, and 3.5. I finally got the courage after not seeing any results in my stomach area after years of working out and lifting weights. I am 5'3" an was 145 pounds. I had a full tummy tuck with liposuction of my flanks and outer and inner thighs. I am in a lot of pain, but it has been so worth...
