32-year Old, Mom of 8-year Old Twins, DESPERATELY Needed my Body Back! - Destin, FL

I decided on a tummy tuck the day after my twins...

I decided on a tummy tuck the day after my twins were born in 2008. The opportunity never presented itself for me to have the down time necessary for recovery. I have always dreamed of having my pre-twins body back since I had them so young. Not to mention I live at the beach where everyone is in a bikini all year almost. I was so embarrassed by my body and I was very unhappy. After unsuccessfully trying to have the surgery last year I could not schedule the help I needed for my children so I passed on the opportunity. This February, I went again for the consultation and made my mind up to do the surgery regardless. I booked it for less than 2 weeks later! I paid in full so no backing out! I knew that nerves would get the best of me so I went for it! I had my husband available from his job and my mom scheduled to come help out. I prepared myself mentally for the recovery and the pain. After having a very difficult labor and c-section delivery/recovery, I had read this surgery was very similar but better because instead of being ripped apart for babies, I would be sewn up tighter! I can say my surgery and recovery was easier than I thought. The first night was hard because I was very sore. I made sure to walk every hour and stay on top of my pain pills as directed. I slept in a chair with a round neck pillow and a heating pad for weeks as it was a long time before I could lie flat. I took the pain pills for about 5 days and was ready to drive so I stopped them and it was not uncomfortable. Honestly the drains are the worst part. They made me very sore and uncomfortable at the spot. 7 days with them was hard and I was so glad to have them out. I made sure to clean my incision as directed and using essential oils, I healed very quickly. The only other bad thing I can think of was the back ache from being hunched over. It was more than 2 weeks before I could stand straight. Having a mind set that it was going to be rough for a few weeks and comparing this to my c-section gave me a leg up on this I think. I would do this surgery again in a heart beat and I'm so mad at myself for waiting so long to MAKE it happen.

Pensacola Plastic Surgeon

I have had numerous friends go to Dr. Ennis for procedures and seen many discussions on a local Facebook forum for best surgeons in the area with Dr. Ennis always being praised. Dr. Ennis and his nurse Lisa are phenomenal. They both made me feel completely at ease during the consult and definitely on the day of surgery! Any time I had questions as my recovery has been progressing Lisa has always answered my calls or my emails in a very respectable time frame. Even when I thought they were silly questions, he and she were very professional! I cannot say enough about Dr. Ennis and his bedside manner! I felt so confident in him as a surgeon and knew I would have amazing results. It has been 12 weeks since my surgery and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! I cannot believe how great my stomach looks now! I honestly look in the mirror any chance I get instead of straying away or trying to hide under baggy clothes. Dr. Ennis has given me my confidence and my life back. If you are considering any surgery with Dr. Ennis, he deserves 10 stars! I will be having other procedures in the future and he will be my go to doctor! He genuinely seems to care for his patients and their outcome is the top priority!
