My motivation for doing tummy tuck was to enhance my looks, and for my clothes to fit me better. My stomach was so big that I got tired of wearing body shapers. I had my surgery with Dr. Bob Basu in Cypress, Texas. My consultation went very well, his patient coordinator Brittany was very nice in answering all my questions regarding the procedure.
My procedure went very well, during my pre-up and post-up one of nurses Shannon was very sweet and warn to me, another nurse Leanne was very nice to me too, most his staff members have a warm attitude.
Before my procedure my stomach was very big that I could not wait to get my tummy tuck, I was so embarrassed to remove my clothes in front of people, my stomach became a handicap to me dressing up to out was a problem.

The first two months after my surgery I could not fit in to my pants, but now I can, but was frustrates me now after the surgery is that my Stomach is not flat like I thought and hoped it will be, it's been four months now since I had the surgery, the last time I went for post-up in may, the nurse told me that I am still swollen, that my stomach will still go down, we are in June now and to be very honest I have not noticed any other change in the size of my stomach since the surgery, yes a lot of fat was removed but I expected a more flat tummy, my upper abdomen is still big and lower abdomen under the incision is kind of swollen or puffy, and the sides of my stomach are uneven. Sometimes I feel stiffness and tightness on my lower abdomen.

At first, I was happy with my stomach because a lot of fat was taken out, but for the past month and half I have not seen any significant change and I am wondering if my stomach will be evened out on the sides.

Don't get me wrong, Dr. Basu is a good plastic surgeon, but I expected my stomach to be somehow flat by now. Anyway, I have read a lot of reviews on line and most plastic surgeons on real self advised to give it six months to start seeing the final result, if that does not happen I will visit my plastic surgeon again to find out the problem.

The nurse ( Ms.Mary) that took care of me before my surgery at Northwest Hospital was just a wonderful human being with a heart of gold, the Anesthesiologists were very warm and the nurse that took care of me in the recovery room was very warm and patient. I am grateful to everybody who contributed in my procedure, Dr.Basu and his entire staff.

I hope to see more changes in abdomen.

To me Dr. Basu seems to be a good plastic surgeon, during consultation, I didn't feel rushed, he was patient and answered my questions. His patient coordinator Brittany was actually the one that convinced me to have my procedure with Dr. Basu, because I had another option to do it with a different surgeon. During pre-op and Post-op one of the nurses Shannon was very warm and nice in explaining to me how to take care of myself before and after the procedure, and whenever i come for my post-op, she also told me what to do and hat not to do. Leanne was very encouraging during my pre-op she told me what to expect before and after surgery. The lady that answers the phone at the Fanin office is a very nice and polite lady. Overall my experience with them was good.
