5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

27 Years Old, Mommy to 2 C-section Babies - Corpus Christi, TX

I am 5'3 inches and weighed about 160 lbs presurgery. My children are 3.5 years and 8 months old - both 9 pounders born by c-section. I was never happy with my midsection, but after pregnancy, it was even worse. Also, I had large, very saggy breasts. I chose to have a full tummy tuck with muscle repair, liposuction of flanks, back, and outer thighs, and breast reduction and lift. The most...

28 Years Old, 2 Kids, Battling the Belly Bulge and Dealing with Deflation - Corpus Christi, TX

You hear the horror stories of how much your body is going to change after having a baby, and you decide to embrace it, fix it, or complain about it. I gained 60lbs with my first pregnancy and 45lbs with my second. After having my first born, my body bounced right back. I was absolutely thrilled my body looked almost normal after 13 months to only find out that I was pregnant again. So, why...

32 1/2 Years Old, Mother of 2 Boys - Corpus Christi, TX

I always have been self conscious of my breasts since I had children. I breast fed and my breast were saggy, deflated (extremely) lol and looked horrible in swim suits and strapless clothing. My confidence was at an all time low. I have been looking on this sight for a few years now and finally found the courage to go for a consultation. I actually went to several but Dr. Gouverne was my...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best Breast Augmentation - Corpus Christi, TX

I've worked for a plastic surgeon in California, and I've seen a lot of results. Mine was excellent! I was treated with respect and courtesy. The Drs. staff was friendly and helpful. Dr Gouverne is obviously a very experienced surgeon and my desires were met if not exceeded. The thorough aftercare was excellent. A very positive experience!!

29/ 2 Babies/ Breast Fed 18 Months. Corpus Christi, TX

After 2 babies and nursing for 1 1/2 yrs, I definitely didn't have the same breasts that I had 2 yrs before. I went from a B to deflated A/B after children. l wanted to feel even better than I did before I had children, and I do! This was a decision I put a lot of thought and emotion into, and I'm so happy with the result.

36 Years Old, Mother of Two - Corpus Christi, TX

I am two days post op and the pain isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Saw the doctor today and my stomach is as flat as a board and my butt looks rounder. So far I am satisfied with the way my body looks. Dr took off four pounds of fat. Dr. Gouverne himself called me yesterday to check on me which I thought was very caring and sincere. Feeling a lot better today, it's easier for...

Much Needed Breast Lift with Implants - Corpus Christi, TX

Not only was I happy about the look and natural results, I also had a great experience. Everyone was so nice and informative at the office from the moment I checked in to checking out. They also helped me in choosing the perfect size that best fits me. I'm extremely happy with my new me and excited to see the difference in the confidence I have now. Thank you, Dr Gouverne!

LIPOSUCTION/ 30 Year Old/ Mother/ with Excessive Fat in Love Handle/ Flank Area - Corpus Christi, TX

I have always suffered from large love handles (Even as a teenager). Dr Gouverne was finally able to give me a nice slim figure that I absolutely love. Honestly from start to finish I was so amazed at how friendly & professional this office was. As soon as I was out of surgery I could see the difference in my love handle area. I absolute loved my results. The pain was not terrible, lasted...
