Share your story about why you considered and ultimately had cosmetic surgery.

I had a C-section 21 years ago with twins, I am 47 years old and have always worked out and stayed in shape. I was never able to completely sculp my abs. Over the years i wore under garments to hide my bulge, it just seemed to get worse and thats when I decided it was time to fix my stomach.

How did your friends and family feel about your decision to have a procedure?

friends were very supportive, my family was as well except my mom tried to talk me out of it..I knew that was due to fear..I get it, I'm a mom too and know the risk of any surgery.

How did 1800MySurgeon help you through the process of finding a qualified plastic surgeon?

They were great, they did all the work and kept in contact with me. I told them what kind of surgery i wanted and they provided names

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

everything was great from my doctor to the surgery center, I felt totally comfortable with everyone. The surgery was quick, my recovery was easier than i thought it would be. I was completely amazed how flat my tummy is and the scar looks Great!! I am so happy with my result. I can wear my shirts tucked into my jeans and not feel self conscious.

What advice would you give to another person considering your same procedure?

Dont wait as long as I did, my twins are now 21. If someone would have told me my abs would never be the same after twins or a c-section. I would have done this years ago!!

How do you feel about your result?

I LOVE MY TUMMY NOW!! Im so much more comfortable in ALL my clothes..what a difference. ThanK You Dr Sutkin and 1-800- My Surgeon. Truly!!!
