"Outstanding" Tummy Tuck Leaves Patient Feeling "Decades Younger"
- on Yelp
Dr. Yarish is an outstanding plastic surgeon with the a great bedside manner and a team that cares. I waited 6 years from an initial consultation with him before I decided to have a tummy tuck. I knew from the first meeting that if I ever decided to go through with the surgery, he would be the one to do it. I cannot say enough about the excellence if his office and medical staff.
When you go into the office, you are treated warmly and gently. They give you a nice robe to wear (not some cheasie hospital gown). They serve you drinks. They have magazines and literature to read in all waiting situations. If you are hungry, they're going to give you a bar of some sort. I never had to wait more than 10 minutes to be seen, so they seem to have the scheduling process down pat.
Dr. Yarish himself is respectful, soft-spoken, wise, and caring. He maintains a sense of humility even though he has done more abdominoplasty surgeries than anyone in the state of Texas. Various staff members explained every step of the process personally, and also provided the documented instructions for pre-op and post op care, along with garments, bandages, tape, soap, and a very short list of items that I needed to get from the pharmacy to be ready for my surgery. They also provide you with an intense vitamin regimen to prepare your body for surgery, prevent inflammation, and promote healing after surgery.
As reluctant as I was to undergo this major surgery, I have to say, it accomplished more than I had hoped. I feel beautiful, I look amazing, and I received some added health benefits that I don't think even the medical staff anticipated.
I am in the fitness and wellness industry, so I was already strong and healthy. But Dr. Yarish repaired my abdominal wall, had been split widely from pregnancies. No amount of my own abdominal work could heal this divide. This is a fairly common issue with women, and he does this routinely as part of abdominoplasty.
As a result of this repair, I have incredible core stability, and other body parts are now falling into line. For example, my posture is better, and internally, my pelvic organs (bladder, uterus, etc) got a lift that makes me feel decades younger.
If you undergo this procedure, be forewarned that you will need to block out about one week of bedrest, and a second week of mild activity alternated by rest. There are drains with tubes coming out of your body that are a total pain, but are absolutely necessary. These can be in for 2 weeks. Also, I experienced a great shift of my internal organs. They have to move in order to fit into the tighter space. So there is an adjustment period in which the stomach, intestines, uterus, and bladder, all move, and in my experience, this burns a little bit inside. But two weeks post-op I can say that I am adjusting very well and I see daily progress.
Dr. Yarish can do any kind of plastic surgery. He is top in his field and he gets great people to work with him. Whatever else I may have done, he's my doctor!
