I would like to have a flat tummy, get rid of the skin flap I have been carrying around for 22+ years. I would also like to acquire an hourglass figure or something close to it.

I recently lost 30lbs over the last 7 months. I had a c section about 9 years ago and my stomach hasn't been the same since. After losing a lot of weight, my belly had more sagging skin. Through my 20s and mid 30s I weight trained and was very fit, then had a life altering neck injury and ended... READ MORE

I had my gastric sleeve 3 years ago in May by Dr Ramos Kelly in Tijuana Mexico. My highest weight was 278. I got really sick of being overweight....literally sick. My insurance would not cover any surgery and started pricing cash in the states. YIKES!!!!! I found and researched Mexico and it... READ MORE

I had the gastric sleeve done 4-11-14. I've lost over 100lbs. I started getting severe yeast infections and chaffing under my stomach so my surgeon suggested getting a fleur de lis panniculictomy. I had it done on Friday the 8th. So far it's going well. I can't wait till the swelling goes down... READ MORE

I was once 400LB and have type 2 diabetes. I decided to start losing this weight that held me back from so much of life. I started by cutting out carbs and ate as much meat and veggies as I wanted. I struggled, but the weight did start to come off. I lost 170 LBS. I continued walking a bit... READ MORE

After losing 115 pounds, I still had very low self esteem. I looked great with clothes on but what I took them off all I seen was the fat and was disgusted with myself. When I met gusenoff I was 135 pounds and a size 4 with a huge excessive amount of skin in the abdomen area! I feel so much more... 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'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

I really need to see if my insurance will pay for a panni. I am having discomfort. I hate that I have an HMO policy because I have to take a path to just get to see a plastic surgeon. Sigh. But will try talking to a dermatologist as well. Do you think I am a great candidate for this procedure?... READ MORE

After a year of being a total creeper on here reading about people's tummies and surgeries, I am finally making my own review. I have been obsessing over getting a tummy tuck for a little over a year now, but to honest I don't think I would be able to follow through with that procedure. I am... READ MORE

I was very thankful to have found this site because I recently watched the show Skin Tight on TLC and u till watching that show I just tonight my lower abdomen was fat that I just couldn't get rid of. After watching it I realized that it was excess skin and went with the support of my husband... READ MORE

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

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.
