Tummy Tuck As Part of my Mommy Makeover- Amazing! - Mountlake Terrace, WA

I have a full review under mommy makeover. I am only posting this review so I can actually rate my provider, somehow it won't let me rate him so it shows up under his profile. I had an extended tummy tuck without muscle repair, along with a breast lift and augmentation.  READ MORE

Banded in 2006 Haven't Regretted It Yet! - Federal Way, WA

My highest weight was 265 (I'm 5'5) and I was only 25. I was so unhappy and so so unhealthy and dieting just wasn't getting me there. I chose to have a lap-band placed 11/2006 and it was the best decision I ever made. I was out of the hospital within hours and back to work the next week. I lost the first 60 or so pounds within the first year and slowed down after that. I had three fills... READ MORE

Almost 5 months PO

I booked surgery today for November 5th... Less than a month away. I'm very excited but nervous about all the particulars, especially the anesthesia and the recovery. I consulted with three different surgeons before picking my ps. I feel good about his before and afters and his twenty years in the field. I am 31 with no kids. I had lap band surgery six years ago and have lost 115 pounds,... READ MORE

<3 thank you for this comment, it made my day. There is so much hope! READ COMMENT

Totally depends on you, everyone is different. I personally lost 18 pounds before my surgery even happened, thanks to the liquid diet I had been on for three weeks prior. I think I lost about 60 pounds altogether in the first eight... READ COMMENT

I just read your story and looked at your pictures and wanted to say you look awesome! Good job on your massive accomplishment. Have you had any work done on your upper arms? Your arms look super thin and I was curious. I've lost 115... READ COMMENT

I wish! I was self-pay for both procedures. Thank God for my dad, who paid for the lap-band and then seven years later, co-signed for the care credit so I could have my mommy makeover. Thank you! READ COMMENT

The surgery and recovery was easy. I was back to work the next week. The only issue I had was the clear liquid diet I was required to be on afterward. I found that I wasn't getting enough calories and it was making me weak and dizzy.... READ COMMENT
