I'm a Beauty Enhancement Awards Contestant!


This album is an official submission to the Beauty Enhancement Awards. (Read more about it.)


I'm competing in the following categories:
Best Breast Augmentation, Best Makeover - 30s, Best Female Tummy Tuck, Best Plastic Surgeon - Tummy Tuck


My Personal Statement:
I am a 36 year old mother of 3. After loosing 54 pounds in 10 months time and keeping it off, I had alot of additional skin that hung. It was very discouraging and I did not feel good even with my clothes on. I was not comfortable and wanted to improve my image. After many different meetings with a PS I decided that Dr. Michael Beckenstein from Birmingham, AL was the one that made me feel I was making the correct choice to have this done.

Some of my motivations was to improve my image with and without clothing. Also, I knew that my waist size would be greatly reduced with the Full Tummy tuck. Due to all the excess skin that was around my waist.

I am thrilled with my results and absolutely love Dr. Beckenstein. Dr. Beckenstein has some of the best bed side manners I have ever seen. He takes his job seriously and tries his best to make everyone look absolutely beautiful!!

If someone is looking to have a breast lift or tummy tuck. My advice would be to make sure to have someone there to help you for the first week to be able to get around. Dont push yourself too hard and be sure to avoid caffaine, smoking and salt during your healing period.

    well it's may 1st. I hope your surgery went well and everything turns out the way you want them to. I will come back to check out your pictures and maybe get the name of your doctor. I'm in NC so Birmingham AL is a pretty good distance but doable. Good luck with recovery.
