I thought about getting a tummy tuck for years, but was convinced I could lose the weight on my own. After years of diligent trying, I finally realized I was fighting a losing battle, particularly with the loose skin. I had a few consults with different doctors -- all good, but the moment I met with Dr. Gutowski, I knew he was the doctor for me. He has a wonderful demeanor that put me at ease immediately. Other patients and his staff refer to him as an "artist," and they are correct. He knew exactly what I needed and took the time to address all of my questions (many of which were anxiety-driven!). I had a No Drain Tummy Tuck including lipo of the abdomen, love handles/flanks, back & bra rolls & mans pub. The recovery was rough. I'm 55 and live alone, and that first week was difficult. What made it tolerable was knowing that Dr. G and his staff were always available (and I mean always!). Dr. G gave me his cell phone number and his personal email. If I had the slightest concern he encouraged me to text him, which I did. Knowing that I had that kind of access made all the difference in the world. The difference with my body and my life is unbelievable. I never realized just how much my tummy role (and excess skin) had held me back. He did a beautiful job and I couldn't be happier. Because of his talent, his experience, thoroughness, skill and his wonderful aftercare, I can now live the life I always dreamed of. I have far more energy, my clothes actually fit, and I'm active in ways I couldn't have been before. I recommend Dr. Gutowski very highly. In fact, I actually had him do additional procedures because he's just that good (I'll post reviews of those separately).
