Free "Mommy Makeover" Seminar For East Texas Moms

Tami Marson lost 100 pounds after gastric bypass surgery.  But the weight loss left her with a lot of extra skin.

"Wearing a bathing suit or anything like that, I had to wear something controlled you know to hold it in and make it look nice," says Tami.

So she called on plastic surgeon Dr. James Motlagh.  In Tami's case, a tummy tuck solved what diet and exercise couldn't.

"We take away all the tissue between the hair line to above the belly button in the shape of a football, then we pull the skin over it, like a curtain going down, and then sew it back up," Dr. Motlagh explains.

Tami adds, "You can see the difference right away, right away. He did the lipo in my hip area and tightened everything up. It gave me more of a curve."

It's that kind of success story Dr. Motlagh will share with other mothers at next week's "Mommy Makeover" seminar.

Moms of all ages can learn more about turning back the clock through procedures like breast rejuvenation, face lifts and liposuction.

"This way it's a low stress environment, it's easy, there's no cost to the patient. They're in a comfortable environment with other people who are feeling the same way as they do," says Dr. Motlagh.

Tami, who's battled with weight all her life, had her tummy tuck last December and six months later she says, "We got to go to Costa Rica for our honeymoon in June and it was the first time ever I wore a bikini in front of people and that was fun!"

Tami's advice to other mothers: "They should not feel guilty about it. Spending the money and taking the time, the time off to do something for themselves."

Moms.... If you want to attend the "Mommy Makeover" seminar, it's next Tuesday, September 25th at the ETMC Pavilion with Tyler.

There are two, 2-hour sessions: 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. and 5:30-7:30 p.m.  They do ask that you RSVP to (903) 526-2500.
