Vagina Rejuvination for Cystocele and Rectocyle Repair - New-York

Two weeks ago I had this procedure. My goal was tightening of the vagina as well as bladder relief. I am a mother of four children and after having my tubes tied I opted to do this for myself. Initially, I planned to have a cosmetic surgeon perform the surgery. My obgyn referred me to a urologist because of my cystocele repair. I was pleasantly surpized to learn that my insurance completely... READ MORE

It's only been a few months and I only wear mascara now when going out at night or to a special... READ MORE

Laser Hair Removal on Underarms and Bikini Area... I Am Hopeful - Syracuse, NY

So far so good with laser hair removal. I chose to have my underarms and bikini area lasered to relieve myself of the inconvenience of shaving. Fortunately, I found a provider that I am comfortable with. I am on my third treatment and I already see areas that are no longer growing hair. I pay $175 per session and was told to expect a need for 7-10 sessions. Any treatments after the 10th will... READ MORE

I was quoted $800 per session and to expect 8-12 sessions to achieve my desired result. We agreed... READ MORE

Smartlipo to Upper Back & Flanks on July 10, 2009

Pros: reduced love handles Cons: painful experience I had this procedure because the fat on my back was getting out of control. I am a mother of four children and my body is beyond what exercise and dieting can repair. I plan to have a tummy tuck but I feared that upper back fat roll I often see in after pictures. I decided to "test the waters" by having my back done first... READ MORE

So far so good with my revision. However, I have learned from my initial surgery that I must wait several months until I can see what the actual results will be. I think revisions are common. I am grateful that my surgeon offered to do... READ COMMENT
