"Getting Back to Me After 3 Sweet Babies! - I’ve been wanting a tummy tuck ever since after I had my first c-section and my OBGYN looked at my stomach and said “the only way you’re going to loose your stomach is to have a tummy tuck.” I had three c-sections and with the first two weighing in at 9lbs 0.2 oz and 9lb 3oz. My last baby was the smallest at 8lb 9oz. Each baby was 28 months after the last.I had a breast reduction by a different surgeon two years ago and afterwards I only saw my belly. I researched several doctors, read countless reviews, searched the end of YouTube for videos and finally chose Dr. Song.My initial consult was April 27, 2021. I arrived alone at Prima Center for Plastic Surgery and was greeted by Stacy. I eventually was taken to the back by Adriana she explained everything that was going to happen during the consult, had me undress and she took photos.Dr Song came in shortly after and explained the procedure, asked questions, performed an assessment and told me what type of tummy tuck I was a candidate for. He was thorough and made it very clear he was not going to flip me over on the table and was not going to perform back lipo. He showed me a video of the process and showed the areas he is going to lipo (the flanks), answered my questions and that was basically it.After he left, Jessica came in and explained the pricing, provided the quote and advised me to call when I was ready to schedule. I paid $75 for the consultation and was told if I choose Dr. Song the $75 will go towards the overall cost of the surgery.I left feeling glad my questions were answered but a little uncertain at the same time. I questioned do I want lipo of my back rolls? Why wouldn’t he flip me over? After giving it much thought, my expectation was to have a natural looking tummy. I don’t want the “Instagram model” look. I don’t want to look overly liposuctioned if that makes sense. I came back to Real Self, reviewed his reviews and photos again, discussed it my husband, my best friend and a few others close to me and then decided I’m going to go for it!I called on May 4, 2021 to schedule the surgery. Cindy was very nice and helpful. It was $500 to schedule the appointment and that will also go towards the cost of the surgery. I’m super happy I took the step, super happy about choosing Dr. Song and look forward to the surgery day this month in September!"

Dr. Song made me feel extremely comfortable in entrusting my life in his hands. Safety is his primary concern and it showed. Dr. Song along with the entire staff at Prima plastic surgery are pure gold! Top notched. Adriana his nurse is amazing she works extremely well with Dr. Song she is his right hand, very knowledgeable, caring, patient and truly a gem. Michelle did an excellent job in recovery she gave my husband the necessary tools and information needed for my successful recovery. I consulted with several surgeons before choosing Dr. Song and no one else came close. He held my hand every step of the way as well as giving me his personal cell phone number and calling to check on me during after care. This just felt right it felt like family. 10 stars easily!"

"My son and I had a small procedure done at Prima, and I was quite impressed to say the least. Dr. Song, and Adriana were hospitable and made us feel very comfortable. They answered any questions or concerns we had. Adriana was awesome, she held my son’s hand and reassured him when he was nervous. Dr. Song was very gentle, and talked with my son through the entire procedure. I mentioned Dr. Song was gentle, and when I tell you I could hardly feel that needle (for numbing) go in, I mean I could barely feel it. The procedures were quick and easy, and my son and I are more than pleased with our results. I am looking forward to go back for my next procedure. Thank you Dr. Song and Adriana, you guys were fantastic! 🤗"

"For years I struggled with mid section weight gain in the lower belly. No matter how many diets, exercise, healthy eating, counting carbs/macros I couldn’t even make a dent in the lower belly. It was depressing to say the least. I decided to look into a Tummy Tuck. Had several consultations with different surgeons. My concern was safety #1. I didn’t want a doctor to cut corners or a doctor that was all about IG likes and followers. When I met Dr Song I knew I would be safe. He also told me no diet or exercise would free me of the bottom belly area that it would need to be surgically removed. I didn’t really set any expectations because in my mind ANYTHING would be better than what I was currently living with. Now 6 weeks post op from TT/MR/Lipo to flanks and under chin and I not only look AMAZING but I feel even better than I look. My midsection speaks for its self. I followed every instruction and I healed great. Even the incision line looks great! Swelling sucks but even on my now worst days is better than my previous best days. The words thank you just aren’t enough. Dr Song you gave me my confidence back and I will forever be grateful."
