1 year ago I had gone to Dr. Roche for a consult. After having my 3 children I had decided I wanted to feel more confident within myself. Dr. Roche helped me accomplish just that. I had breast implant with liposuction and a brazilin butt lift. The entire process was very professional. Dr. Roche runs a great practice. I love the office girls and the anesthesiologist was great! I was nervous on the day of surgery but they all helped me through it. Of course I was sore but nothing that I didn't already expect. Long story short, I am so happy I found this doctor and I highly recommend him.

Hello to anyone looking into using Dr. Aguirre for any of the numerous services his practice offers! I'm a nurse and a 40 year old mother of two (now ages 14 and 11). Following the birth of my rather large (9 lb) first child 15 years ago, I began to notice some unpleasant changes in my pelvic and vaginal areas. I couldn't jump on a trampoline without leaking a few drops of urine, and I stopped running because the bouncing always made me feel like I had to pee. Over time, having a bowel movement became difficult - it often felt like I couldn't fully empty my rectum, and I developed multiple skin tags from hemorrhoids due to straining. In addition, my vaginal wall felt very loose and my already long labia were hanging even lower and being chafed by my underwear. My husband never complained and sex was still pretty good, but all in all it was not a good scene. About a year ago I brought these problems up with my gyn, who diagnosed me with rectocele and cystocele, and offered to do robotic surgery with a hysterectomy and mesh repair. I had heard of lawsuits related to mesh causing erosion and was not comfortable with the idea of an unnecessary hysterectomy. I didn't know what to do. Then one day I was looking at the 5280 magazine Top Docs issue and saw Dr. Aguirre's ad for the Mommy Makeover. After meeting with him I discovered that not only could he repair the rectocele and cystocele without mesh and without a hysterectomy, he could also tighten my damaged vaginal canal, remove the anal skin tags, and reduce the size of the inner labia so they did not constantly chafe against my underwear. Wow! The only downside to all of this was that given the extensive nature of the procedures he preferred to do a "bikini line" abdominal incision rather than a laparoscopic or trans-vaginal approach. I was a bit sad that I would end up with a c-section-type scar, but I felt it was more important that he be able to do the best possible job with all the non-cosmetic repairs. As he put it, "you're 40 years old now; I want these repairs to last you at least another 40 years." The surgery was at Rose Medical Center and lasted about 5 hours. The hospital stay was amazing, at least in part because I was given a VIP room since all their regular rooms were taken. The entire staff was fabulous - and I should know because I've been a hospital nurse for many years. Recovery, as predicted, was pretty long given the extensive nature of the surgeries. No exercise for six weeks. Sex and tampons were delayed for about 8 weeks due to residual swelling. At 3 1/2 months the last of the little lumps in my labia from the dissolving internal stitches finally disappeared, and I feel like I am back to normal. Actually, I'm back to WAY better than normal! After suffering for 15 years, I finally can pee and poop normally. Sex is even better than before and I think my husband wants to send Dr. Aguirre flowers because after the vaginal repair I am "tight" again, which makes sex much more fun for him, too. As for the labiaplasty, I do want to make a comment for any woman considering it. We are all built differently and the labia we tend to see in media portrayals (typically porn or doctor's office renderings) are the genital equivalent of Victoria's Secret models and Barbie dolls. Real, surgically unaltered women have all kinds of labia and there is nothing wrong with that. If you are comfortable with and confident about the labia you developed at puberty, you don't have to change them to conform to an unrealistic ideal. That being said, the labiaplasty Dr. Aguirre performed on me produced fabulous results. They no longer hang below the outer labia, no longer chafe, and look nice and neat and NATURAL. I LOVE my new labia!!! As for complications, there were only two issues. The first was excessive swelling where I had anal skin tag removal, which Dr. Aguirre fixed by snipping a stitch in his office. The second was a bit of superficial infection along my scar, making it a bit darker and thicker than I would have expected. Fortunately, Dr. Aguirre did a laser treatment on it and it is looking better already. Also, I would imagine I need at least a year for the scar to take on it's final appearance - and its only been four months. All in all, working with Dr. Aguirre and his wonderful team has been an incredibly positive and rewarding experience and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for any sort of gynecologic surgery, including cosmetic gyn surgery. They are kind, skilled, and professional. Dr. Aguirre has a wonderful aesthetic sense and really takes the time to find out what you want regarding cosmetic appearance before doing surgery. And he and his staff provide consistent support and follow-through during recovery. I would go to Dr. Aguirre again for any of the procedures he and his staff offer - and probably will, since I see he offers treatment for sun damage!

I had the complete works the Mommy Makeover procedure; Breast Lift, Tummy Tuck and some Liposuction of the hips and upper bra area. I was never fat but had so much excess skin from having a beautiful baby boy a couple years back. I was so nervous and excited at the same time to undergo the procedure but everyone at the office especially Amanda made me feel so comfortable and really educated me with everything what to expect and to plan pre and post operatively. The day before the surgery I met with Dr. Hochstein to discuss the surgery details and also to sign consent forms. The office was PACKED with people but I was suprised to see how fast they got me into the exam room to meet with the Dr. Dr. Hochstein explained the procedure in full detail to me and answered every question I could even think of with such professionalism and expertise. Fast forward a couple months... I am 1 year post op and I cannot believe how FAST time flew by. My breast are now full and perky and my tummy is SO flat. To Dr. Hochstein and staff: You all are truly a blessing and you do not know how much you changed my life for the better. Thank you for all the emotional support and comfort throughout the whole recovery process.

Dr Koo is an excellent surgeon who will take care of you, make the right choice and if she feels she cannot give you what you want, she will send you elsewhere. She is very honest and will help you make the right choices.

I'm very thankful to Dr. R and his staff for helping me feel better about me. I went to his office very uncertain and somewhat afraid. However, after my first visit I knew what I wanted to do and that I wanted Dr. R to do it! Dr. R and his staff were professional, attentive, warm and caring from first phone call to last post op picture. After visiting other doctors, I have no doubts that Dr. R and his staff are the tops in their field. When it's time to do something to my face, I'm going back to Dr. R!

I had my Mommy Makeover October 2011 and and the results are amazing!! Dr. Friedman was very thorough, answered all my questions, and told me what to expect at every stage of recovery, which, was unbelievably short! My only regret was that I did not have the procedure done years earlier. I have nothing but respect for Dr. Friedman and his staff and highly recommend them to anyone who is considering plastic surgery. Thank you Dr. Friedman!

Dr. Friedman performed my Mommy makeover in November. The following April, I had to have abdominal surgery. Dr. Friedman was kind enough to open and close for this operation, so that I would not have another scar. He truly advocated for me during this second surgery, and ensured that I received the best care possible. It is atypical for him to work with another surgeon, and I so appreciate his advocacy for me. If you want a surgeon that is a great surgeon, as well as a great person, look no further than Dr. Friedman. He will not relent until his patients have the best results possible. I cannot recommend him enough! His staff is fabulous as well!

    "Mommy Makeovers" are far from uncommon. In fact, they’re becoming increasingly popular and almost any cosmetic surgeon can perform the procedures. Mommy Makeovers are geared towards women who have given birth and desire procedures such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck and sometimes liposuction.
