34, Tummy Tuck and BR. Phenomenal Outcome

I spent the greater part of my life after having my child at age 17 feeling like a fraud. With any compliment I would receive, I secretly knew what was under my clothes. I was a stealth and inventive master of disguise camouflaging what can best be described as "front butt." That's right, friends, my stomach had a deep vertical cleft from muscle separation, deep stretch marks from my pubic bone up to about 6 inches above my navel, which lent themselves to appearing like cellulite when joining the enormous amount of extra skin and uneven fat distribution. Before Spanx was a thing, I would wear a one piece bathing suit for compression under my clothes. I even wore a girdle to my senior prom. Breastfeeding left my chest lopsided by more than a cup size. I would sew a shoulder pad in the cup of my bra to make it appear even. I was just a kid, with a kid of my own, with a body decades older than my years . I felt like "used goods" which in turn attracted mates who treated me the same way as I grew up. Intimacy, physical and emotional , was tough . Oftentimes, though irrational, I believed I was being punished for being a teenage mother. I have dreamed, planned, and researched this procedure for 17 years.

Before and After Side by Side

Day before and 9 days postop.
Pure magic.
Richmond Plastic Surgeon

Let me start by saying that I hate doctors in general. I've worked for plenty and they are mostly full of shit jerks. I can only say FANTASTIC things about Dr. Lynam and his staff. He was not the only Doc I had consultations with. In fact, he was 3/5. Not only did he speak to me with candor, he treated his assistant with respect during the evaluation. It speaks volumes when male surgeon values his female staff. I can assure you that this is not the norm in medicine. Day of surgery, he was lighthearted but business focused as he drew his master plan on my body, verbally walking me through the procedures. The after care has exceeded my expectations. I feel welcomed, valued, and never rushed during follow up appointments. And the results . Oh the grand results! The practice is named Richmond Surgical Arts - and for good reason ! Dr. Lynam transformed my breasts and abdomen into an aesthetic pleasantry, instead of the Monet (good from far, but far from good) I have been living with for nearly the past two decades. Special accolades to his staff- Kari, Brigitte, Liz, Elizabeth and numerous others. They are warm, professional, knowledgable and have accommodated any needs and requests I have had. If you are questioning which doctor to choose for your procedure, you will NOT regret the results and care you receive from Dr. Gregory Lynam and his team at Richmond Surgical Arts.
