I'm so excited that I had my consultation with Dr. James Edwards from the Providence Medical Group today for a panniculectomy. He was fantastic and I look forward to working with him. He has great reviews on here. It's been a rocky road getting to this point but so happy to have made it. I... READ MORE

In 2012 I had my last child and developed Peripartum Cardiomyopathy (heart failure caused by pregnancy). My cardiologist suggested I not have any more kids (already have 3) as the risk of developing heart failure again is significant. My eldest son is going to be 16 this year and I have had an...

I went into the office today for a consult. I thought dr mitts and his staff were professional and kind. He answered all my questions, and I didn't feel like he was rushing through anything. When we were done with the consult he shook my hand. It's so nice to see another dr in Bakersfield you... READ MORE

Had a Panniculectomy covered by Insurance but paid for the additional Tummy Tuck so as to not have 2 different surgeries. I weighed 214 lbs day of surgery. The PS removed 21.5 lbs of skin. I am not sure of final outcome of tummy tuck but having the panniculectomy to remove the large pannus I had... READ MORE

Professional, compassionate doctor and staff they care about how you feel and they make sure you understand the process of what you are having done.

I just hope to have a normal life, get rid of my depression ( ex call me cow, and that i look horrible with my ubres hanging) Plus i dream about using a dress without people asking about du-date. My doctor's appointment was 3 days ago, and she promises to smooth the most that she can because my... READ MORE

Hey, let's face it. We all want to have a "hot bod". It's true, I'll admit it. I hate on others a little bit when I see them prancing around in what I assume to be a bikini, with a perfectly oiled and tanned belly, yup, I am confessing. But here's the thing. At 45 and with all I have suffered... READ MORE

I had my first consultation on August 18, the office didn't get my paperwork submitted until October 22, found out it was approved by insurance on 10/29/15. Very nervous and excited all at once, at this point I don't know if she is planning on doing the FDL Panni or not (I need it but don't know... READ MORE

My incision just burns a bit & they used the surgical glue for sutures!! Super duper sore on my tummy where doc lipoed, but all in all doing well!!... READ MORE

I'll heard some say that you won't have a belly button after a panniculectomy. I want a belly button! I know underpants can cover up the scar, but not having a belly button would have people doing a double take at a pool. I have a heavy, kangaroo pouch that is my main concern. I can never...

My surgeon suggested getting the Fleur De Lis incision to remove more skin from above my belly button and that it would give me a more desirable result than just the traditional cut across. I get to keep my belly buttom (yay!) there is no muscle repair, since insurance is paying for this. I've... READ MORE

I am 22, 5'5" and currently weigh 164 lbs after losing 130 lbs (my starting weight was 290+ lbs). My surgery is booked for June 05 2015. It will remove the excess skin apron/pannus that hangs on my stomach. The Medical Services Plan (MSP) is covering this procedure, as it is considered a... READ MORE

Dr. Shureih was absoutely wonderful in making sure I understood everything that was going to happen with my surgery before and after, and my results speak for itself. I love the new me and I will definatey be using him for any... READ MORE

I had gastric bypass surgery in 2011. It resulted in weightloss of 150 pounds. My belly had bothered my for a really long time and after my last child in 2014 I decided it was time to say farewell to the excess skin. I had 3 kids and I was just not happy with my appearance at all. I feel so much... READ MORE

I was overweight all of my life. In 2010, I made lifestyle changes and lost 80 lbs over 1.5-2 years and I've kept most of it off. In 2014, I had a breast reduction (covered by insurance). In May of this year, I had a 20 year dream come true and had a brachioplasty (arm lift), not covered by... READ MORE

I had lost 150+ pounds after the birth of my twins and was suffering from excess skin of the abdomen. So December last year I went in to have a full tummy tuck, a week after I realized things still were not okay. I had excess sagging skin to my abdomen almost immediately. Since last year he...

After losing so much weight and having c-sections... I really was not happy with the tremendous amount of hanging skin on my breast, torso and inner thighs... It did not take me long to decide that dr. Adler would be my doctor. He was wonderful from day 1! I'm 8 days out post op and could not be... READ MORE

I'm currently 2 months out of having a panniculectomy and I'm thrilled with the results! Best choice to make, my Doctore did an amazing job, I would recommend Dr Nandagopal to anyone looking to have this procedure done, he truly cares for his patients and his work is beautiful. My scar is... READ MORE

Well, I had lived with numerous infections for 7.5 years and the humiliation of not being able to even wear underwear because they rolled under my panus. I also went thru a bottle a week of body powder. When I would go up and down stairs the panus would flap against my legs and when being... READ MORE
