Mommy Make-Over for a Mother of Twins

Plastic surgery is a big decision – risky, expensive, and physically challenging. When I finally decided to pull the trigger on the surgery (breast augmentation and tummy tuck), I was nervous. I had been working out and eating right almost obsessively for two years, but I still couldn’t get rid of the physical damage done by having three children (including one set of twins.) I really felt that plastic surgery was the best way to renew my confidence.

My decision was complicated by the fact that I was living internationally and I had a narrow window of time to schedule my procedure. This meant that I needed to select my surgeon largely through on-line research, word-of-mouth, and email interaction. I did research on-line and found many qualified surgeons near my home in Anaheim Hills, CA. After several inquiries with multiple surgeons, I chose Dr. Andres Taliesnik.

Actually that decision was easy – for many reasons. First, I found him to be extremely responsive to all of my questions and concerns. Although my communication with Dr. Taliesnik was largely through email (because I was overseas) – he responded to every inquiry or concern quickly and thoroughly. The fact that I was communicating directly with the surgeon (and not a staff member or assistant) made me feel that I was getting individualized attention – something I value. In addition to exceptional patient service, I discovered the 3 – 4 of my girl friends had also had breast augmentation and Dr. Taliesnik was their surgeon. My friends had nothing but great things to say about their experience and their outcome – needless to say I was sold.

The procedure I choose – breast augmentation and tummy tuck is not easy. The recovery is challenging. However, my outcome is exactly what I wanted. I now have a very natural look – full, youthful breasts and flat abdomen. The surgery was able to accomplish what 2 years of workouts and good diet just couldn’t do – I feel great. Was it worth it??? Definitely.

I really appreciate that Dr. Taliesnik took the time to understand what I wanted aesthetically. His attention to detail and concern for my well-being was clear throughout the process. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.
