Finally Free from the "Mummy Tummy"! - GA

I am 4 weeks post-op today. I am very happy with my results. I had a large muscle separation and saggy skin. It caused lots of problems for me (not just cosmetic). I'm glad I finally decided to have this surgery. I can finally stop hiding behind big clothes. It's funny because people keep thinking I've lost a ton of weight in the past month. I have barely lost a pound! I just... READ MORE

I'm so sorry about all you're going through. I know my PS doesn't charge for touch-ups in the office after surgery. I'm shocked you want to go back to her to get your breasts redone. It doesn't seem like she's given you the best care to... READ COMMENT
