Erica’s Tummy Tuck

… the results are amazing. I could not be happier …

Erica is a 33 y ear old female, had four children prior to coming to Dr. Lewis. She was unhappy with the stretch marks on her abdomen, the lax skin on her abdomen, and the overall shape of her lower abdomen.

“I have had four children, and had a lot of loose skin on my stomach that bothered me constantly. My clothing didnt fit right and it was really hard on my self-esteem. people would ask if I was pregnant. I decided one day enough was enough and I was going to do this for me.”

“I researched for several months before deciding on a surgeon. Dr. Lewis had good reviews, and while I planned on interviewing a few surgeons prior to my procedure, once I met him and his staff during my consultation, I felt comfortable enough to go ahead and use him. I was a nervous wreck, and they did a great job explaining what would happen, what to expect, and calmed my fears.”

Dr Lewis performed a high lateral tension abdominoplasty

“I had an idea what to expect after surgery from what Dr. Lewis had explained and from a LOT of research. The first week of recovery was extremely painful. I was stuck in a hunched position and thought I’d be that way forever! I had planned on going back to work within a week, but it ended up being three…possibly because I also had two hernias repaired at the same time. Slowly though, the pain started to subside and I was able to stand straight. “

“Even with the initial swelling, my stomach looked so much better. Healing took a while. I was concerned about the appearance of my belly button, the scars, etc. It just took time. My belly button looks amazing now…you would not know it was reconstructed if I didnt tell you. The swelling is gone, and I was able to wear a bikini within ten weeks.”

“I would absolutely recommend getting a tummy tuck…but only do it for yourself. Its painful, but the results are amazing. I could not be happier. This affected my self esteem in ways I couldn’t have imagined. I can wear clothes that I couldn’t for the past ten years. People don’t ask me anymore if I’m pregnant. Each time someone, even my kids, would make a comment, it chipped away at my self-image, even if they didn’t mean any harm. Those comments don’t come my way anymore. The results of the exercise I do are now visible, whereas before, my muscles were hidden under all that skin. I knew that it bothered me, but I didn’t realize how very much until it was gone.”

“I would absolutely recommend Dr. Lewis and his staff!! They were wonderful! I was very nervous, and they took the time to listen to me and calm me down. They were patient and kind. I am not exaggerating when I say that this was one of the most positive “medical” experiences I have had. Between Dr. Lewis’s staff and the nurses at CJW, I really felt fortunate to have a great team of people working on me.”
