Wanted to feel and look better. I had felt my middle section was out of proportion to the rest of my body. Was afraid to do anything based on some of the things I had read. My experience was easier than I had expected and the outcome is better than the photos can portray. Could not be happier with the results!

Pre Tummy tuck and 4 weeks after

Columbus Plastic Surgeon

I had been thinking of having a tummy tuck and lipo for a few years. Reading some of the stories online kept me from moving forward seriously..... until I met Dr. Heck. Many people I know have had procedures done by him and were so happy. I decided to get serious and talk to him about having a tummy tuck. The moment I met him I knew I was ready to do it! He has a caring and friendly personality. Not only did I notice how pleasant he was to me, but I also heard him address his staff in such a polite and friendly manner. It is obvious his staff really respects him and enjoys working with Dr. Heck (always a good sign in a doctor)! He did not make me feel the slightest bit uncomfortable. We discussed many of the issues I was concerned about and he put my mind at ease. He told me he would not do any procedure on me unless I was completely 100% comfortable. I knew I was ready to go forward, but he suggested we meet again to make sure "my head was in the game". Fast forward to today. I am 5 weeks out from my surgery and I feel amazing. Wish I had done it sooner! I was only on pain meds for 3 days and had no complications at all. Minimal bruising and swelling, my scar is healing nicely and I feel like a new person. I had read so many stories about how tough the recovery was and I have to say, it was not bad at all. I am certain I feel so good because Dr. Heck is meticulous about his care and prepared me on what to expect. I have seen him for several follow ups and each time I go in I am so thankful and ecstatic I chose Dr. Heck to do my procedure. I cannot believe how great my stomach looks and how well my clothes fit. What a confidence boost! My advice to anyone thinking about having a tummy tuck by Dr. Heck is to listen to his instructions for the after care. He knows what he is doing and I swear it is the reason I have felt good since the first week. And don't psyche yourself out by reading a bunch of negative stories. Obviously it is important educate yourself and to know the risks and complications, but if you pick the right doctor the experience does not have to be traumatic. Choosing Dr. Heck to do my surgery was one of the best decisions I have made. I would not trust or consider any other doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
