I’m a mother of three. At 36, after birthing those children one after the other, my baby belly refused to go away. People often asked if I was pregnant again even though I wasn’t. I knew something had to change when my sister’s son asked if I had a baby in my tummy like his mother did at the time.

I soon became uncomfortable in my own skin. It reached a point where it affected how I related to people, even my husband and my kids. One of my friends suggested plastic surgery, but the idea made me nervous.

I spent a lot of time researching tummy tucks – what to expect and how they were done. I lost count of the number of blogs I read, how many videos I watched, and how many photos I looked at. When I finally decided to look up surgeons in the area, I found Dr. James Apesos’ website. It caught my attention that he was board-certified with many years of experience, and I liked that he shared before and after examples of his work. So I scheduled a consultation with him to discuss my questions and concerns.

Dr. Apesos took the time to ensure that I thoroughly understood the risks, costs, and various options available to me. When I left his office, I felt comfortable enough to move forward with the procedure. I was nervous before the surgery – then again, who wouldn’t be? But I was pleasantly surprised in the aftermath.

I couldn’t be happier with my results! My baby belly is gone, and now I feel comfortable wearing a bikini at the beach this summer. I look great, I feel great, and I’m back to who I am and who I want to be. I’m glad I went to Dr. Apesos for my tummy tuck.

If you’re considering any form of plastic surgery and live in the Dayton and Miami Valley regions, please contact Dr. James Apesos and schedule a consultation. He’s an experienced plastic surgeon and can answer any questions or concerns you may have.
