I am considering a tummy tuck - i am looking for any referrals for good plastic surgeons. Also, i would be interested in docs you would say to stay away from. Seems like most people i know have had implants - but i'm not sure a good implant doctor would be a good tummy tuck doc?

I am meeting with one today - but have a feeling i will be getting several opinions. Thanks!

So What Happened?

Thanks everyone! I'm setting up appointments now - v. nervous. But my parents asked me to wait until the weather cools so they can actually enjoy their visit with the grandkids. I will keep you posted!!

Dr. Creech in Chandler is an excellent surgeon. I had breast implants and a herniated belly button. I have several friends who have had breast and tummy tucks done with him and everyone has been very happy with the entire experience. The surgery is done at his office so you don't have to deal with the hospital. I know several nurses and surgical aids who work with different surgeons and they all said that they would choose Dr Creech if they had a procedure. Hope this helps and good luck!

I also recommend Dr. Spies. Here's his website:

He did my tummy tuck with muscle repair (to repair my diastasis recti) in February of 2008, and I am thrilled with the results. Feel free to email me through my profile with questions.

Also check out the Make Me Heal forum for tummy tuck/abdominoplasty: It contains a wealth of information.

Hope that helps.

You are correct when you assume that a doctor that does great boobs or noses may not be great with tummies. You really want to go to someone who specializes in tummy tucks. I have a good friend who has worked with a number of plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills and she has relayed many stories about this to me.

With that being said, I do not know who specializes in tummy tucks in Arizona, but I did have Dr, Jacobson in Scottsdale do my boobs after breast feeding and I think he is a very good surgeon. I am not sure how many tummies he does, but he may be worth talking to. The other person who was recommended to me was Dr. John Ward in Scottsdale. Neither of these men are cheap, but there is probably a reason for that. Good Luck!
