5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck Was the Best Thing I Have Done for Myself.

I looked for several years and her "after" pics were better than anyone's. She makes you feel very confident in her as soon as you meet her. I am still so impressed with the work on me and everyone I have talked with.

33 Yo, 3 Kids, Decreased Breast Tissue - Nashville, TN

Dr. Haws is Superb. She listened to my concerns and was able to give me the exact look that I was going for. She made me feel comfortable with my decision. You cannot find a surgeon with a better bedside manner or expertise! Dr. Haws was super and I would recommend her to anyone interested in making improvements to their body!

No regrets, 6 weeks - New pics! Mommy makeover with TT, muscle repair, BA, lipo. 141lbs, 2 kids

I love this forum! I mean seriously, late night reading, almost every night - did I say getting a little obsessive? I'm a 31 yr old, happily married, momma of a 15 and 6 yr old, currently at 5'5, 140lbs. I had my first when I was really young and was able to bounce back to normal weight and size literally the same day I gave birth (i mean who does that?). Well after 2nd child, not the case!...

25 Year Old Mother of 3 Kido's "Awaiting" Full T/T W/ Tightening of my Abdominal Muscles - Nashville, TN

She is an excellent surgeon, she's very helpful and will discuss w/ you what she thinks to the best of her ability about your procedure. She's pretty much a caring surgeon, she listen to your expectation and gives you more and likely what you want and her staff team their so supportive, they give u hope n makes you feel so anxious and excited about the procedure... I was ready to be put to sleep a/s/a/p!

Im Actually Looking Forward to Buying a Swim Suit This Season - Nashville, TN

I am having the works done tomorrow- breast lift, tt and lipo of hips and flanks. I am 37, 5'8" and weigh 210. I carry all my weight in my middle. I had lap band surgery in 2003 and lost 55lbs. The main reason why I decided to do this is because I want to run without the fat impedance. I exercise regularly on the elliptical and have no problems, when I try to run it is like my...

Even a SEAHAGG Needs Love! Tummy Tuck, Breast Pocket and Scar Revision - Nashville, TN

I have waited to see how I responded to healing before I jumped in and give kudos to Dr Haws. I strictly went with word of mouth and my gut feeling when selecting her as my plastic surgeon. I then checked on her credentials. I had an earlier BA and lift from another surgeon and was not satisfied with my scars after I ended up with the scars after an infection. Dr. Haws is a very confident, and personable doctor. Feeling embarrassed to show my skin and private area, she just puts you at ease and automatically goes to work explaining how plastics can help achieve what will work. I paid dearly for breasts 4 years ago and just wanted nice firm girls with excellent shape and lift. Well she did it, I can not begin to tell you how wonderful they are and week to week they look super and so, so sexy. My tummy tuck is also coming along very well and healing nicely with a thin scar. I'm still early on and have not returned to full acty's so I can not give a full report there yet. Dr. Haws was familiar with the type of odd infection I had, and we took precautions prior to surgery using nasal antibiotics, and taking cultures, to make sure I wasn't a carrier. It was so easy this time. Last time I was dealing with wound care for 8 months. What a mess. I would not hesitate to give Dr. Haws and her staff a recommendation. She is worth every penny at this point. Thank you!

TT W/o MR - Nashville, TN

My surgery was the 21st of February, and feel that my recovery has been not nearly as bad as I was expecting! I went back to work 11 days post op, and has been great spite the swelling. I didn't really understand how uncomfortable the swelling would be, but I will take swelling over pain any day! I can already tell a difference, and wish I would have done this 2-3 years ago! I can not say...

Ready to Be Flat Again-Scheduled for 1-12-11 - Tennessee

I am a 27 year old, 5 ft tall, weigh in the 120's(on a good day), happily married lady with a wonderful two year old son. My pregnancy was extremely painful and difficult. I had to have injections daily to stay pregnant for the first trimester and after that I got a "lovely" assortment of issues. However, I would do it all over again for my little boy. A month before I delivered...
