I was very nervous and excited to be able to do a tummy tuck with liposuction of the flanks. I was always chunky with a belly even before I had children. I've tried all diets and pills, lap band programs and never qualified. I was very conscience about my stomach I couldn't even see my feet or had to lift my stomach just to wash.I LOOKED at so many reviews and i mostly checked Realself.com .I've did consultion a year before i went to Hedden Plastic so i went to Hedden Plastic to see Dr Christopher J. Schaffer he sat listen to me and explain everything I was comfortable the staff was so nice and professional even anesthesia was very kind. My pain was painful very uncomfortable I swelled but Dr Scaffer staff was there for me. Just be patient and follow Dr Schaffer orders so in just 1 month my stomach is so flat and my scare is invisible but i have stretch mark but i used Coco butter Vaseline with vitamin E stick and the stretch marks went down and fadedand. My husband he can't keep his hands off me and all my friends ask me who did my procedure or to check my waist to see if I have a girdle on when i go to the gym people think I've been doing a work out since i have a flat stomach with no sides. I love you Dr Shaffer

DR Christopher Schaffer listened and showed me what he's going to do and asked me did do I have any questions. I can call any time. The staff was friendly even in pre Op the nurses and anesthesia was kind and had me laughing.
