Tummy Tuck and Lipo: 53, 5'1", 155, Previous C-section and Full Abdominal Hysterectomy - Houston, TX

I was not intending to do any plastic surgery - I was just going to support a friend. In fact, I had always been somewhat skeptical and dismissive of PS in general. But the more she talked about her procedure and researched doctors, the more intrigued I became.

We interviewed a number of doctors all over the US and in Brazil. Ultimately, however, we decided on Dr. John LoMonaco in Houston, TX.

I have always been in shape, and athletic, but after a c section and full abdominal hysterectomy, I had a gut that just wouldn't go away - and Dr Lo said he could fix that!

I chose Dr. LoMonaco as much for what he said WASN'T necessary or advisable as for what he said he could do. He was very realistic in setting my expectations for what I would look like post surgery, and even discouraged me from pursuing an additional procedure, because he just felt that I wouldn't really see a WOW improvement, just so-so - and he's all about great results!

I have never been more pleased to shell out 13K! 100% pleased with results and my curvaceous new figure ! Our recovery and post surgical care was pretty uneventful - I was walking a mile after one week! Okay, it was a slow mile, and I was tired afterwards - but I was up and moving and recovered very quickly. I am now 7 months post op - fully active, playing tennis, walking 2-3 miles daily and rocking a bikini like I never thought I would at 53!

TT, lipo

Can't say enough good things about Dr. Lo and his staff! They were available, accessible and just a phone call or text away ANYTIME day or night pre and post surgery. I gave 4 stars for wait times, only because Dr. Lo is so focused on each patient, that sometimes he runs long - and so when we had to wait, I understood that he was giving the same great care and attention to someone else.
