Facelift with Fat Transfer

Patient Story

“I’d been thinking about a facelift for several years and decided that I would finally have one as a retirement gift to myself. Please allow me to say that it has been worth it 10 million times. As fearful as I was, it was just the opposite. I experienced minimal pain and bruising. My friends say I look great and well rested since my retirement. Those that know about my facelift say they can’t even see any incisions. I healed well and now no-one can guess my age.”

Breast Augmentation

Patient Story

“I was considering breast augmentation for the past 5 years. After having children, my breasts sagged and were deflated. Now, I absolutely love them! My husband also loves how natural they look and that no one can tell I had breast augmentation. The fact that you can’t see the incisions was the real bonus. I was initially afraid of the healing process, but I actually healed well without a lot of pain or pain medication. I went on vacation and felt great in my bikini.”

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Patient Story

Yes, I am 54 years young!!! I am the mother of 2 daughters and wanted a tummy tuck 20 years ago after a C-Section left me with a pouch. In 2001 I was referred to Dr. Togba and I had a thorough consultation. I was impressed with the time and attention he gave me and the careful explanation. I admitted that I was working out but felt like I wasn’t seeing the results. He encouraged me to continue with my exercise program and that through the tummy tuck he would get rid of the loose skin and fat and tighten the abdominal muscles revealing the muscle tone underneath, so I increased my sit-ups each day. Several years later I took the plunge and had my tummy tuck and at 54 I have never looked or felt better than I do now. I want to let women know it is never too late to feel good about yourself. I love Dr. Togba for his great work and his staff.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Patient Story

After much research, I finally found a doctor I could trust… I’ve wanted a Tummy Tuck since my last child who is now 21 years old. My children, knowing this said, we will pay for it since we messed up your tummy. Well, I spent many years focusing on my darlings and now, I wanted to do this for me. I had a smooth recovery. I was expecting a lot of pain and now, I can say, my shoulder bursitis is more painful than my tummy tuck. I am so happy with my outcome. Determined to maintain my results, I am health conscience and I exercise. It’s hard to believe, after 4 children, I can still look great in a bikini! My admonishment, if you can get it done, do it!”
