I am 40 years old, had 2 children and was left with saggy loose skin. I had my tummy tuck with muscle repair 10 months ago on 4/8/11. I am very happy with how my tummy looks.

I think you look fabulous! Your new nose fits you. Of all the doctors, I love his noses the best, I wish I knew about him when I had my surgery years ago. You are very swollen, especially in the top bridge (between the eyebrows) and... READ COMMENT

I have been following your rough journey & feel so bad for all you have been through. I am sorry to hear that you need to wait 3 years, that is long. I myself had 3 rhinos done, my last one was over 10 years ago & although it is not the... READ COMMENT

Wow! Your results look awesome!! But the big shock was that I was thinking you were around my age, 44 & then I read that you are 63!! You look amazing!! READ COMMENT
