My wife who is a doctor herself, had a tummy tuck and liposuction. Results were amazing! As an Internist, I would recommend this center for any patient who needs it. More

My experience with Dr.Song and the staff at Prima Center for Plastic Surgery was exceptional. Not knowing what to expect, I was initially apprehensive. Dr. Song was very compassionate and assuring during the initial visit, the procedure and throughout my care. I am definitely pleased with my decision to have the procedure. My results are an amazing transformation. More

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Song and his team. I walked in nervous and worried he might tell me I wasn’t a good candidate for what I wanted to have done. He did the opposite. I sat in his office crying tears of joy when he calmly and with great care explained what he could and could not do to help my body that had been through significant weight loss. I walked out (after 2 surgeries/4 procedures a few months apart) the most confident and comfortable in my skin (albeit lots less of it!) than I’ve ever been. My life is forever changed thanks to Dr. Song. Bonus points for his nurses who are super caring and make you feel really safe and zen. Same for the anesthesiologists. No complications; all follow up care has been excellent. Every time I see Dr. Song, a huge smile comes to my face — that’s how significant his impact has been for me. Huge fan. More

Life changer after massive weight loss - could not be more excited - I cannot sing the praises of Dr. Song enough, the entire team at Prima Center is attentive, courteous, informed, and down to earth! I came to Dr. Song to get tummy tuck (skin removal) after almost 150 weight loss, and a breast lift. My tummy tuck is snatched and my breasts higher than they have ever been and so pretty! He completely changed my body for the better and I cannot be more excited! What was also great is that they can provide this surgery in the hospital if you want additional options! He provided me an honest expectation of what he could do, and exceeded any idea of what I thought my body could look like after hanging skin! He was attentive, and available at any time I needed him. He provided me his telephone number and checked in on me after the surgery and ensured everyone (my family taking care of me) was educated on the next steps. He is knowledgeable, patient, thorough, honest, and a deal in this business! If you're looking for amazing work with wonderful aftercare, come to Prima Center.If you are looking for a surgeon in the atlanta area he is the one! I was also concerned with keloids and he was knowledgeable on how to prevent this. More

DR, Song, is the best. I am  an 18 year breast cancer survivor,  my breast were uneven, I had weight loss surgery and with the lost weight my breast were very noticeably uneven and I was self conscience of the way I looked. I went to 3 consultation before going to Prima and they each said they couldn’t touch the radiated breast with no other suggestions or options. Dr. Song, however, gave me options, I went with reduction of my right breast to match my left breast and a lift on both with liposuction. While my surgery was a challenge for him he because of the the way the lumpectomy left my left breast so deformed, he mastered it successfully, I love the outcome and feel great I am 3 weeks post op.  He is very attentive and  knowledgeable and precise. He is thorough and explains the procedures completely with the good and the bad. I would for sure be going back to Dr. Song for my next procedure. I love the way my breast look and feel. Dr. Song you are the best.Thank you for giving me my confidence back.Tracy James More

Dr. Song, Dr. Song, Dr. Song EVERYONE!! I was so nervous about having my Tummy Tuck done due to being afraid of being botched. I believe that you pay for what you get. So instead of taking a trip to Miami or out of the country I was referred to Prima. Someone recommended Dr. Song to me and I’m so glad he turned out to be the one to SNATCH my waistline!!!!! I had abdominoplasty and Lipo around my waist. He sculpted me so beautifully! I made sure to do everything that he told me to do… you want to make sure you take care of the investment!! And be patient during the process. What I love most was the way he communicated with me. If I had any questions or concerns I could call or text anytime and he was there to answer every question and concern. I’m now going on 5 weeks postop and I can’t stop looking at myself in the mirror THANKYOOOOUUUUUU!!! More

All the reviews you’re reading about Dr. Song and his team are absolutely true! I want to sincerely compliment he and the entire team for the amazing work they do for each patient. I love my results! I have ZERO regrets about my tummy tuck, and after months of extensive research I’m grateful I found and chose Dr. Song. So much of a patient’s outcome depends on the skill of the surgeon and Dr. Song has an impeccable technique…down to giving me a natural belly button which he knew I was REALLY concerned about! He is very straight forward about the achievable outcomes from each surgery and will only do what is best for the patient. He is CONSISTENTLY responsive in a timely manner, and makes you feel comfortable asking any question; and trust me I asked tons. His level of expertise is 2nd to none and it’s such a great feeling to be confident that you received care from one of the best plastic surgeons in Atlanta. I would highly recommend Dr. Song/Prima Center to anyone! They have implemented every detail and health/safety protocol you can imagine. It’s extremely unnerving to undergo such an invasive/elective surgery but by the time I was rolled into the operating room and placed in a cozy warm bed for a deep nap my worries were gone. Thank you for everything Dr. Song and team! I appreciate your genuine care and support! More

Consultation - tummy tuck & breast lift with removal of axillary tissue. - Had the privilege to consult with Dr. Song this afternoon for a plethora of issues that need reconstruction: botched extended tummy tuck redo, botched breast lift redo w/ axillary tissue removal, correct asymmetry of botched back lipo, and additional arm & thigh lift.Due to the severity of the complications I had with the procedures performed overseas, Dr. Song advised to begin my reconstruction journey by attacking my anterior body; tummy tuck & breast lift with removal of axillary tissue. He emphasized that he would not be flipping over (face down), in other words, he would not perform lipo or excise skin from my back during my 1st surgery. This would potentially fall in phase 2/3, contingent upon successful healing of my abdominal & breast redos. Due to my sleep apnea my surgeries would need to be performed at the hospital.Unfortunately, I currently do not have a belly button due to my previous botched experience and Dr. Song explained that we would not even attempt to create a new belly button (neo umbilicus) at this point in order to curtail potential blood circulation/infection issues. This one was a hard pill to swallow because I've been waiting for a new belly button since I got botched in mid-2000's. Also, he advised against me getting implants along with my breast lift redo (due to potential rejection of foreign object). Doc urged me to "trust his plan" and honestly, I know his plan is conservative in comparison to all the TikTok surgeons however, my now wiser & mature self & intuition tell me that I have found my symmetry Angel.I've been battling with shame, depression and fear from my "botched" experience in Bogotá.I nearly died and was left severely disfigured to the point that I no longer have a belly button, I have a hard mass in my stomach which is causing me to have back & mobility issues, my back skin sags, and my husband & father of my children abandoned US because of how "hideous my turned out" - his words exactly. So you see, if Dr. Song can work his magic slowly but surely - I'M DOWN!I've done enough spiritual, mental and emotional healing. Recently underwent VSG surgery to lose the excessive weight I've packed on these past 17 years drowning in my own self-pity. It's time to heal my exterior! 2023 is my come back year!PSDoc has excellent bedside manners and is very attentive. He was not dismissive, yet firm on his plan on how to approach my situation with what I'm currently working with: a botched canvas. I respect that! It shows that he can't be lured with money by stacking procedure over procedure to rack up a bill. He is invested in his patient's safety & FINAL outcome.One thing I totally forgot to ask him is if he does J-Plasma for skin tightening during his procedures. I'll email his team to find out.Looking forward to completing my with round with Song mid 2023, as I expect to be closer to my goal weight of 130-150lbs by then. I'm currently at 225lbs. More

Finally got what I wanted - cannot wait to see my final result - I researched for five years on finding the right doctor for my tummy tuck. There are countless IG doctors out there, but let me tell you, Dr. Song is he real deal. He knows his stuff and you will not find a more personable and professional doctor. Which doctor calls you after surgery and give you his or her personal number? Not to mention his work is amazing. He is top pedigree in his field. I cannot wait to see my final result. More

2 months post-op - wanted a natural look and he delivered - I chose Dr. Song for my mommy makeover surgery and I couldn’t be more pleased with not only my results but the whole entire experience! As nervous as I was about the process and procedure, it was very difficult to remain in that space once you step foot into the facility. Everyone was so warm kind and welcoming. All of my questions were answered and all of my fears were addressed in the most statistical yet comforting manner. My entire experience from consultation to surgery to post op ran like a well oiled machine. I worked specifically with Cindy, Adriana and Kate who each had a way of making me feel like I had a friend on the inside. The best part about my experience was the anesthesia. It was my first time and all I remember was laying on the operating table with a warm blanket and then I woke up snatched. Lol Dr. Song is an amazing artist and personable doctor. We communicated via text anytime I had questions or concerns. For me personally, the restorative power of my surgery has extended far beyond the physical appearance. My entire mindset has shifted and a new level of confidence and feminine energy has been discovered. These photos are only 2 months post op and look at this transformation and scaring!!! I choose Dr. Song because I wanted a natural look and he most definitely delivered. More

54 y/o mother of 3, 10 days post tummy tuck - most remarkable transformation! - Dr. Song performed my TT on May 27, 2022 and I am beyond excited about the results so far! I am only 10 days po but can absolutely see the most remarkable transformation of my body. I am so glad that I waited to find the perfect PS for my procedure. At first, I was a little nervous because we had to do a virtual consultation. I live in Texas and Prima Center is in Georgia. But after talking to him, he answered all of my questions without hesitation and made me feel absolutely confident that I would be ok and have a great outcome. I am a 54 yo mother of 3. I have been waiting what seems a lifetime to get my body back and I am well on the way to having it!!Everyone that I have had the pleasure of speaking to at Prima Center has been amazing. Cindy Hopkins, the surgery coordinator, made the process painless and she was so responsive to all of my questions. We met in person a couple of months prior to my surgery and I feel like we are fast friends now. But I am sure she makes everyone feel that way! Adriana and Michelle were amazing during the pre- and post op visits. Prima should be proud of their staff and how comfortable they make their patients feel during this process.Pics coming soon!Updated on 17 Jun 2022:I can't believe how much my body has changed in just 3 weeks. This surgery has been one of the best things I could have invested in for myself. So glad I waited to find the perfect surgeon. Dr. Songs after care has been nothing less than amazing. Since I was an out of town patient, having him just a phone call away has been great. He responds to all of my questions quickly and just as though I was there in the office. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who is in the decision-making stage. More

Happy repeat patient - Happy for the 3rd time - This is my 3rd procedure performed by Dr. Song, and I'm happy for the 3rd time. I just got my breast reduction/lift with implants exchange (smaller). This has been a very easy recovery, with little pain. The only pain was from the liposuction to the underarms. My scar looks really good considering I have keloid skin. More

I had abdominal plastic surgery December 3,2021 by Dr. Song. And in this procedure my flanks was liposuction out along with my upper and lower abdomen. And the repairing of my muscles. Dr. Song and his staff was so patient and kind. They made sure all my questions was answered and my needs were met. When I tell you this man went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied with my procedure!! OMG!!! He snatched my waist and got my stomach flat flat..I’m beyond please at my results. I can’t stop smiling. I’m overjoyed. I truly thank God for this man. So I’m telling anyone that will listen. This man is the real 🐐 GOAT!! He’s definitely the truth. I promise you won’t go wrong by choosing him to be your surgeon. He’s a man of integrity and he’s going to make sure everything is good with his patients. Thank you Dr. Song for being an all around great man. More

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. More

I'm very pleased with my results. Dr. Zerwin is great! I did other consultations in the area and no one made me feel as comfortable with my Abdominoplasty and Brachioplasty procedures. The prices are reasonable and the staff is great. They are with you from the beginning to the end. I recommend anyone considering a surgical change, to definitely go and meet Dr. Zerwin and his staff. More

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! More

I looked for a plastic surgeon for over 8 years. I never felt any of them had my best interest. They seemed money hungry or told me I needed to lose weight. Then I met my match Dr. Song. When I talked to him he asked me WHAT I WANTED. That’s big for me. At the end of the day I am the patient. He took the time to explain what he would do, made me feel comfortable and gave me his direct phone number. He is an AMAZING Doctor. I am so pleased with my results. I am 100% snatched…. I had a tummy tuck, muscle repair and lipo. The price was well worth every penny and it was affordable. His staff are some really beautiful and sweet people. I made the best decision of my life and I am so glad I made it with The Prima Center for Plastic Surgery. Dr. Song really cares about his patients. He’s so dope ❤️ More

I’m late writing in this review I got my tummy tuck done in 2013. Dr Z did an awesome job with my tummy tuck.

I am an RN and was referred by other nurses. That ranks high in the Medical profession. Dr Stephenson and his staff where excellent. I am a young 64 year old who had a tummy tuck. I went from a size 12 to a size 8. I can’t express how pleased I was with my results. Everyone is polite and professional. He is very detailed with his follow up care until 6 months post op. I would recommend him and the staff at Prima Plastic Surgery Center here in Georgia. “ Thank you all again for the fantastic service and care”. 😍 More

Mommy Time… - I have 74 days before my tummy tuck. I would love to have it sooner, but I’m not going to push it because I want to lose some weigh. Thirty pounds would be awesome. I want to make sure I get the best results and I don’t want to worry about losing more weight after my surgery. The only thing I want to worry about is my recovery and possibly getting a 6 pack, once I’m cleared to workout again.Updated on 29 Jun 2021:So, like I said I’m going to try and lose as much weight as possible before my surgery date. I’m shooting for 25-30 lbs.?.? We’ll see. Suggestions and support are welcome. I will try to update my weight loss journey every Sunday. Please feel free to follow along with, make helpful suggestions, and motive.Updated on 19 Aug 2021:Sorry, I wasn’t so diligent about updating my weight loss. However, I did lose 17 lbs. I’ve really worked my but off. I walked 6 miles almost everyday, with the exception of Sundays. I also swam twice a week and did Zumba twice a week. As far as my diet, I cut back to 1200 calories per day and burn on average 2000 calories per day. This week, I cut back to 1000 calories and plan to juice until my pre-op, next week. During this week, I will probably cut back on the exercising and have one super healthy meal a day. I’m juicing beets, pineapples, spinach, oranges, ginger, and turmeric. So, I will juice and drink water all day and eat one small healthy meal before 6:00pm. And I plan to get plenty of rest and sleep; don’t want to tax my body too much. Oh yeah, also taking multivitamins. I purchased a few supplies for post-op care, but don’t want to over do it. Any suggestions? I already have Juven, foams, hibclens, pads for incision, loose fitting open in front dress, robe, and slide on shoes.Updated on 26 Aug 2021:I had my pre-op today. Everything went well. Adriana answered all of my questions before I met with Dr. Song. I went ahead an paid extra for the Exparel; just in case. Better safe than sorry. I hope it really makes a difference. I’m also getting a revision on my arm lift from two years ago. I’ve lost more weight in my arms and could really do without the extra skin. Not really sure how I’m going to get up and down without using my arms with a TT. Two years ago when it was just my arms, I relied heavily on my core muscles to scoot in and out of bed and seated positions. This is going to be interesting. Thank God, I have an amazing support team at home.Updated on 17 Dec 2021:Quick update: I thought I included the price of my procedure in my original post. Anywho, my procedure included an arm lift revision along with my tummy tuck. I paid a total of $9281. The tummy tuck and arm revision was $5220 and the rest was anesthesia related fees. It was well worth it.Updated on 17 Dec 2021:Well here are some pics. I love my results and would definitely do it again.I’m not sure if these photos will post. But here ya go.2002020203939384&484&;$;$;$4$;$;746463)3)3):$:$:$;$;$;$;$;$;$;$;$;$;$;$;$$;$4$;$;$3&:&:&:$;$;$;$;$($(&;$;$;&:&Updated on 6 Feb 2022:Ok, so everything has been going really well. I go for my 6 month checkup in a few weeks; I’m really excited. I love my results. I haven’t seen my stomach this flat in 19 years. My incisions healed really well. I started going to the gym 2 weeks ago. Yesterday, I tried to do some ab workouts but wasn’t able to do a single on and I had it on the lowest setting, 5 lbs. So I get I’ll be taking it easy. Maybe even start with yoga or Pilates. I did however do a few Zumba classes with no problem. Any suggestions on ab workouts after a tummy tuck would be great. More

Finally losing the twin skin (ETT, BA, lipo to flanks, back, and chin) - I am a mama to 3. My oldest are twins. I gained 50lbs during my pregnancy with them, from week 20 until delivery at 38 weeks. Of those 50lbs I gained in just 18 weeks, I lost 42lbs in the 2 weeks after delivery. My belly skin NEVER recovered. I've spent the last 8 years feeling trapped in this skin. I spent years not caring about my weight because at least the skin looked a little better when it's filled with fat. Every time I lost weight it just looked like a crinkled up paper bag again. I never thought that this surgery would be a realistic option for me, or that my husband would support this decision. I am so happy to finally be on this journey to feeling like I'm not trapped in this skin anymore. Current stats:5'5" 164lbs36c, deflatedUpdated on 16 Jun 2021:I had my consultation today and it's Dr. Song. It was such a comfortable experience. Dr. Song and his staff took their time, answered all my questions, never made me feel pressured or rushed. I am so excited to be moving forward. I am scheduled for an ETT and BA on January 7th.Current stats5'5" 163lbsUpdated on 14 Jan 2022:I made it though the first week. This process has been exponentially better than I anticipated. I went in expecting to be in the worst pain imaginable for the first week. It has honestly been extremely manageable and more discomfort than actual pain. I did pay for the exparel shot and stayed on a regular routine of my pain meds for the first five days. I also spent the first three days sleeping A LOT. My results so far have exceeded my expectations and I cannot wait to see how things heal up. Dr. Song and the entire staff at the Prima Center have provided exceptional care. I am so happy with my choice to trust them. I will update in another week or so as things heal. More

Dr. Stephenson’s relatable personality coupled with his professionalism is why I continue to trust him with my plastic surgery needs. I’ve had lipo and a tummy tuck, both turned out great. The entire staff is amazing and will make you feel right at home! I wouldn’t go anywhere else. More

All of my incisions are completely healed and as of now, I’m 5weeks and 3 days post-op. I’m just working on my scars with silicone tape. I will post pics later this week when I change them out. My breast went from a 42H to a 38DD. I lost 10lbs prior to surgery and have lost an additional 10lbs since surgery.

I am very pleased with the service I have received from Prima Center. All interactions from the front desk staff to Dr. Zwerin have exceeded expectation. I first reached out for a consultation in 2020. Due to Covid, they were doing zoom consultations. Dr. Z was very thorough during our consult and he presented a PowerPoint slide show to cover all the necessary topics. I came into the office for a second consultation because he needed to see my thighs in person. From there I scheduled to have surgery about 3 months later. Due to excess weight loss, I have the skin removed on my stomach, arms and thighs (all at one time). The communication leading up to surgery was great. Surgery went as planned! The follow up care was great. I had some issues with my thighs and Dr. Z made himself available via cell phone and went so far as to meet me at the office over the wknd when they were closed just to make sure I was okay and to give me additional surgical dressings because I had ran out and the stores did not have any. I am now almost 6 months post surgery and I am so pleased with me experience. I am happy I chose this office. I would definitely recommend them over many others that I considered. More

If I could give 10 stars to Dr. Zwiren and nurse Cindy I would. I have been going to see them for year’s because of the trust and respect I have for them. Dr. Z is a perfectionist and nurse Cindy is always putting your mind at ease with a kind word. Dr. Z explains exactly what he’s going to do so you understand the procedure you’re going in for and answers all your questions. If you’re like me, I research on the internet then have a long list. One more important thing, there are a lot of surgeons out there that overcharge and Prima Center is not one of them. They are going to help you feel better about yourself without taking advantage and are very reasonably priced. I just had a mommy makeover and I’m thrilled with my results. Take my advise and go with Dr. Zwiren. He and his staff are top notch!! More

Had a Tummy Tuck with Dr. Zwiren. My experience was awesome. Everyone at the center was extremely helpful and nice. Never needed the super pain killer (only ibuprofen and the pain pump) and was up and moving around the house the next day. Less than a week later I adventured out to Walmart with my husband. Less than 2 weeks post op I was going for walks and shortly after that I could workout with modifications. Five weeks out and I’m looking awesome, even with some swelling in my abdomen, and doing pretty much everything I could do before surgery. So glad I had this procedure! More

His assistant and office staff are also phenomenal. Wonderful experience!Updated on 24 Mar 2021:Still pretty swollen, overall no issues. I was able to have both drains removed which was a breeze. I seriously didn’t realize that’s what Adriana was doing while I was talking to Dr. Song. The pics don’t show my surgical line but it is nice and even. I’ll post surgical line pictures soon. I just love Dr Song and Adriana. I couldn’t have picked a better doctor. He has such a great bedside manner.Updated on 1 Apr 2021:Two nights ago I noticed that when I pressed on my stomach it looked almost like what a waterbed looks like. I spoke with Adriana and they had me come in. They confirmed it was a Seroma and aspirated the fluid. I’ll be returning next week for a follow up. Enjoy the video!Updated on 12 Jun 2021:I’ve been so bad about getting an update. I’ll do better pics later but here’s my end of the day (always swollen then) post surgery pics vs before pics @ 3 months. The scar healing has been impressive to me. I promise I’ll get more pics outUpdated on 8 Sep 2021:I hope you are all getting excited! This summer I wore a bikini for the first time in 20 plus years. Never once did I feel the need to hide my body. Thank you Dr song for helping me get my confidence back. When I say I trust this man, I mean it! He was and continues to be very realistic with me, and his office staff are a close second! FYI- I did lymphatic massage which helped tremendously with my swelling. I stopped wearing the faja in June (3.5 mo post op) because it was way too hot to have layers on. More

Looking for the FLAT SIDE!!! - Where do I start now...I stalked Realself when I had my breast done. I heard great things about doctors in Miami (as long as you can withstand the wait times). Now I'm baaaack for a tummy tuck!! I wanted to go to Dr. Hunsaker (or however you spell it) at C.G. Cosmetics. However, I have heard so many horror stories where patients needed to go back to their original doctor due to whatever complications they were having. That's an 11 hour drive for me and I wouldn't be able to stay more than 5 days. Soooo I researched doctors in Atlanta, GA and found quite a few but none with CONSISTANT work! That was very important to me. That's how I found Dr. Song. I came across a few reviews from women who had seen him and I was always looking at their pics like "WOW"!! I even went to the website and pulled up Tummy Tuck before and after pics of his and his colleagues and let me tell you, Dr. Song can work miracles!!! Now I'm a thick chick weighing in now at 215 lbs so I thought I wasn't even going to be a candidate. I am 5'4", so I'm thick and short LOL!! I was nervous to even reach out to a doctor because I felt I would be rejected and be turned away due to my BMI being over 30. Not Dr. Song. When I have my verbal consultation with him on yesterday 10.1.2020, he made me feel so comfortable. I sent in my pics to his office last week and got contacted by his PA Cindy (who is sooo lovely and sweet). I paid the $75 consultation fee after completing paperwork with her and sending pics. (sorry for being all over the place). Buuut back to speaking to Dr. Song. The call lasted about 10 mins and he discussed the procedure in great detail. Everything from the cut and lipo and his expectations. He can see my true figure under these layers of blubber and he advised me that he can meet my expectations. The only extra thing I would have to work on is this bra roll. Ewww I hate that about my back but I really started working out and jogging again very recently. I just gotta keep it up. I got my quote this morning and there are a few things I want to discuss before I post the quote. I'm looking to get snatched in January 2021 (my birthday month). I'll post updates once I make some calls to the office and discuss some thangs!! More

Pick Dr Song! - Dr Song charges reasonable prices and treats you like his one and only surgery case. At my consult in March 2020, he showed me a video of the tummy tuck (TT) and lipo (upper stomach and flanks) procedure. He was honest that without getting the back lipo, I would still have the back rolls that I walked in with. That was fine because I never wanted a vixen look. I just wanted my body back from 10 years ago. I signed consent forms and I paid the deposit to have surgery in May. The next day Covid 19 exploded everywhere and I was sick to my stomach . But I had faith that everything would work out. And it did! Lockdown was lifted May 1st, mandatory Covid 19 testing came back negative a week before surgery. Pre op was 10 days before surgery; because I was having surgery at the his surgery center, I didn’t have to do pre op blood tests, pcp clearance or xrays. I am 36 yrs old, fairly healthy mom of 4 so I didn’t mind. I had a full workup a few months ago previously my pcp anyway. At preop I was given my prescriptions including 10 blood thinner syringes that I had to self administer (I hate needles but you barely feel it). I had gained weight over the quarantine and he voluntarily said he’d do some back lipo for NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE!!! That’s how you know the Dr cares about the final result, not just money! I was nervous the day of surgery but his nurses were great! So nice and accommodating! The pain was excruciating after surgery but it’s major surgery. The nurse gave me one Percocet post op but it did nothing. Just be prepared Dr Song told me after surgery that it would all be worth it and it was! He even called and texted me on a Sunday evening to make sure the pharmacist fixed my pain prescriptions!!! I have my body back and self esteem on 1000. I was back working at my home desk job a week after surgery. I would definitely recommend Dr Song for TT/lipo!!!Updated on 24 Aug 2020:If you are a curvy girl like me, have your stage 1 Faja ready to get into after surgery. Dr Song gave me a binder to wear but it kept riding into my waist. Right on my TT scar. He gave me the stage 1 faja a week PO and the nurse put it on me at the appt. I felt soooooo much better wearing the Faja under the binder. If I had the faja sooner, the swelling wouldn’t haven’t gotten so bad. More

Thank you Dr. Mike Song! - I have been wanting a mommy makeover for several years. I workout at least 3 days a week but I could never get rid of the loose skin on my stomach that came from my pregnancies. While researching mommy makeovers I came across this site and I'm so grateful that I did. There was one doctor that really stood out to me (Dr. Mike Song) so inboxed the women that had work done by him. They assured me that I didn't need to search any further. I called Prima Center for Plastic Surgery last May 2019,and immediately knew that I made the right choice. Cindy was my coordinator, she's professional, sweet and hilarious. The entire staff is wonderful. On July 12th, 2020 I flew from Ohio to Georgia. And on July 13, 2020 I finally got to put the voices with the faces when I went for my pre op appointment. Dr. Song is down to earth, he really cares about his patients. The butterflies in my stomach went away after I met him. I knew after meeting him, my nurse Jessica and my anesthesiologist Adriana that I was going to love my results. Due to Covid everyone including myself had on masks from the beginning until the end. I loved how the staff handled the Covid situation, they didn't allow anyone in the lobby, they took my temperature as soon as I walked in the door. All of their attention was focused on me. My surgery was on July 16, 2020 just a few weeks ago, one of the happiest days of my life. The only thing I remember from that day is walking into Prima Center excited than waking up in my Airbnb looking down at my hot body lol!! I do remember Dr.Song calling my friend which was my caregiver to check on me and he gave us his cell phone number to call or text if we needed him. I'm still impressed by that. My stitches and one drain was removed at my post op appointment, July 23, 2020.Recovery has been going really well. Dr. Song made sure he kept in touch. He even text me while I was at the airport on my way back home to Ohio on July 24, to make sure that I injected my lovenox before boarding. Like I mentioned before he really cares about his patients. I absolutely love my results! My incision is low and thin. My boobs are perfect!!!! My stomach is smooth and flat!! I'm still recovering but my confidence is through the roof lol! More

This place will always have a place in my heart, because of the wonderful Dr. Song.I first came here with my mom, who was diagnosed with breast cancer. She came here for breast reconstruction. She had the TRAM flap.My mom was very nervous about having the surgery, but got excited when she found out that she was getting a free tummy tuck as well.My mom had a problem with anxiety, and Dr. Song helped her along the way.Dr Song is the most compassionate doctor that I have ever known. He made my mom feel like she took top priority. He took the time for her.Soooo, me being jealous of my moms perfect boobs, I just had to get mines done too! I was treated with the same importance as my mom. Dr Song explained to me the whole procedure in its entirety.He did a marvelous job! Unfortunately, three years later, my left breast deflated for some reason. I have saline, so it was ok. I called the office and made an appointment. When I went to this appointment, I was so emotional. I hadn't been there since my mom had passed. Dr. Song saw me crying and started crying right with me.He told me that my boobs were still under warranty. He waived his fee, and said that I just had to pay for the fee for the surgery area and anesthesia! What an awesome doctor.Anesthesia is expensive and he asked if I wanted to do the reimplantation with only local. I said "yes."The day of surgery, I was numbed up and didn't feel a darn thing! I was amazed!I LOVE this place. Absolutely a blessing to my family.Thank you Dr. Song for all that you've done and all that you do. You are amazing. More

Very professional, I decided that for my big 40th birthday I will do something for myself. - I'm a 39 year old single mother of 3 amazing outstanding kids age 20,18 and 15. I've dedicated my all to my kids and now that they are of age I decided that for my big 40th birthday I will do something for myself. After doing my research on a few doctors I came across dr. Song. I called and made my conclusion (75.00 fee) (1-17-2020) to meet with him for a tummy tuck muscle repair and lipo of the flanks. The facility was nice and quiet also very clean the staff was very professional and well mannered they even offered me water or soda of course I took the soda lol! Once in the back, they took pictures then dr. Song came in and did the examination he went over everything and answered all my questions with no hesitation. Once I was done with the dr his surgery coordinator Cindy (she is such a doll very loving person) came in and we went over pricing (7,250.00) once everything was done and I left the office I was much convince dr. Song would be my surgeon. 4 days later I called and payed my 500.00 deposit my surgery is booked for April 3, 2020 stay tuned for my pre-op appointment update and pictures. More

Pre-op was Tuesday and everything went great pretty eazy process. When i first arrived i have to call or text the office to let them know i was outside. They then called me to come in. At the door they have someone taking your temperature before you go any further. Once in the back I changed into the gown Dr Song assist Adriana came in took my hemo, blood pressure and temperature again then she went over the drain info and after care she also gave me my prescriptions (63.00 with insurance). After that Dr Song came in to to another exam and to answer any other questions i had. The whole process took about 30 minutes. More

I am 5 weeks post op and I can't say enough good things about Dr. Song and his nurse. My abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) went perfectly and I am ecstatic with my results. From day 1 Prima Center was great. Making an appointment was easy, front desk ladies and finance lady are very nice and friendly. Dr. Song has great bedside manners and his nurse Adriana even remembers what is personally going on in your life. You feel like they really listen to what you want. I recommend them 100%. Thank you Dr. Song, Adriana and Prima Center More

32 yo Mom of two, Mommy Makeover - I'm a 32 yo Mom, of two precious kids. I breastfed both babies and lets just say, they left my boobs looking like "quarters in a tube sock". Lol I've had a very hard time getting my body back from pregnancy and I've been considering this surgery for years. My surgery was January 3, 2020. I had a breast lift with 450cc in each implant, tummy tuck w muscle repair and lipo to sides, mons area and under arms.As I'm starting this review, I'm only 2wpo but already sooooo happy with my results and I cannot wait to see where I am at the 6 month mark! Dr. Song is extraordinary! I could not have picked a better surgeon. His work is precise and beautiful, while his bedside manner is even better! He truly cares for his patient's and is VERY kind and caring. More

I Can't Stop Looking at Myself!!! - I am so glad I made Dr Song as my TT surgeon! His years of experience, great bed side manor, to the organized and friendly office staff. His assistant Adrianna is absolutely wonderful. I'm an out of town patient, so my travel to the office was limited... Dr Song and team accommodated my request for visits. Every phone call and email I sent with questions Andrianna answered immediately!! I had the best care with this team! Most importantly I'm pleased with my result!! 6 weeks post OP, I'm so happy! I dropped 2 dress sizes ???(which was a pleasant unexpected surprise) I just cant stop looking at myself!! Thank You Dr. Song!! Updated on 7 Jan 2019: Here's a photo of me before and after my TT surgery. The after photo is 8 weeks post OP! I'm still swollen and this is a side view shot without me sucking in!! I'm happy the way my scar is healing. I'm using embrace scar treatment. I will keep you posted!! More

Tummy Tuck Scar Revision - Dr. Song performed my tummy tuck on May 17, 2018 & at my 6 month check up in November There was an area of extra skin present that bothered me, I felt like it could be flatter. Dr Song said that he could do a local procedure to remove that area. Once I arrived on yesterday he marked the area & I pointed out 2 areas of my tummy tuck scar that were really thick he said let's fix that also. The entire procedure lasted about an hour & a half. I was awake the whole time, the numbing part was hell. I'm in some pain now but I'm dealing with it. Dr. Song is a perfectionist & he definitely wants his patients to be happy. Right now the area is bandaged as soon as my stitches are removed I will post a before & after. I'm planning for round 2 lipo360 with bbl I want the smooth back to go along with my flat stomach Updated on 21 Mar 2019: Got my stitches out last week started scar treatment (scar oil, scar strips,scar gel) By having the revision done on my right side it raised my scar a little higher but I'm definitely flatter now after having that chunk of skin removed Updated on 18 Nov 2019: Its been a while since I have updated I'm so excited on December 19 I will finally get my second round of surgery lipo 180 with bbl please follow my other review for full details I will be documenting along the way More

Consultation scheduled! - So after 6 months of hardcore research, I have chosen Dr. Song to perform my Tummy Tuck. Not only are his credentials super impressive...his reviews, before and afters and his recommendations are phenomenal. He’s the only surgeon I’ve scheduled a consult with because I’m certain he’s right for me. I also live in Duluth, really close to his office so that’s a plus. This site has helped me so much so I wanted to post my journey here as well to help someone else. My appt is 2/12/19. The price for the consult is $75 and this will be applied to the cost of your procedure. I’m hoping to have my surgery sometime in April so let the countdown begin! Updated on 24 Jul 2020: SO MANY things have happened since my original consultation day and I was never able to have that consult. Fast forward to today and I'm officially starting my journey! Before pics to come on my next post. :-) Updated on 24 Jul 2020: Monday night I had my phone consult (because of Covid) with Dr. Song. He was super sweet and answered all of my questions. I submitted pictures to him a few days before so he was able to look over all my info/pics before hand. He was confident that he could give me really nice results with a full tummy tuck, muscle repair, and lipo of the flanks. So my surgery is scheduled for October 15th. I have a preop at the end of September and I have to get a Covid test the first week of October. Total price is $7,657. That is including Exparel which is optional. The consult was $50 and I had to pay $500 to secure my surgery day. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! I will be updating you guys after my preop in September. More

New Song Doll with a Curvy Waistline - Dr. Song is truly an artist! His attention to detail shows in his work. Super low incision; perfect belly button. I couldn’t have asked for better results. Friendly and very professional staff, too! If you are looking for an overall excellent experience with a phenomenal surgeon, look no further! I highly recommend! Updated on 30 Dec 2018: This update includes pics that were taken from Dec. 2 (3 days post-op), through Dec 27 (4 weeks post-op). I took pic along the way and chose to post them all at the same time, to show progression from when the swelling was starting to kick in, to the drains being removed, and then results after 1 month. Other than swelling, the worst parts of the first month was giving myself Lovenox injections for the first 10 days and dealing with the drains. I’m a Registered Nurse but it is not very easy inhecting yourself, lol. That is why I’m very careful and as gentle as can be with my patients. Hope you enjoy this update. Sorry for the nudity in some of the pics, if anyone is offended by it. Updated on 29 Jan 2019: I’m doing quite well 2 months after my surgery. Healing nicely. I still use Maderma Stretch Marks Therapy and Bio-Oil daily. I tried using Embrace Active Scar Defense on my incision but it was too harsh for my skin. I removed it after only 2 days because blisters started to form on my skin along the edges of the adhesive. Currently, I use Maderma Advanced Scar Gel. As far as swelling goes, I still get mild swelling sometimes in the evenings but nothing serious. I have included a pic of the waist trainer I wear (most) days. I don’t sleep in it, I usually don’t wear any compression while sleeping unless I feel like I need it- like when I have more swelling at the end of the day. My waist trainer has four latches, I usually wear it on the second setting. I can wear it on the fourth latch but for now, the second latch is more comfortable. Updated on 29 Jan 2019: This urinal device helped soooo much during the first few weeks post op, when trying to keep tension off your surgical site! You won’t have to sit down to tinkle! I saw this on someone else’s review and decided to order it. I can’t remember their profile name, but THANK YOU!!! It was a lifesaver. Take my advice and get yourself one of these!! Side note: By nature, I automatically started back sitting down to pee, like a girl...but I still use it from time to time lol Here’s the link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07J26LNY7?psc1&refppx_pop_mob_b_pd_title Updated on 13 Feb 2019: My results after 1 and 2 months. I am looking forward to continued progress. My goal is to tone my whole body and recreate the body I had in my 20’s. I’ve always been athletic. I was a cheerleader in high school and a cheerleading coach in recent years. I will do this by combining resistance training, cardio through dance, flexibility training through yoga, and a keto eating plan. I’ll keep you all posted! More

Tummy tuck, MR, lipo of flanks - I am SO glad I did this surgery and went with Dr. Song. From the consult, to the Pre-op, post ops and results I am VERY happySeptember 13 I had my TT... it was $7500 but I did add exparel (which was $400). That price including everything (including a binder and 2 compression garments). I had to pay for my prescriptions but insurance covered most of it.I just had my 2 week post op yesterday. Everything is healing well and I am feeling really good .. recovery was not as bad as I thought it would be. Pictures are day of surgery and two weeks after. I am still really swollen but I am already loving what I see and can't wait to see the end resultsUpdated on 14 Oct 2019:Still swole in the lower abs and flanks. Still loving my results.Currently I am-wearing my faja 90% of the time-eating clean 85% of the time-limiting salt-drinking at least half a gallon a water a day -had one 60 minute lymphatic massage I plan to-start walking 30 minutes a day -do at least one more lymphatic massage Updated on 14 Oct 2019:Updated on 7 Jan 2020:Has been 3 months ...I am VERY happy the scar placement ... and how it is healing. I still have swelling ... usually after I workout or at night. But it’s minimum.Not wearing any compression garments (stopped at 6 weeks). I do wear my waist trainer when I work out but I was doing that before the surgery.100% satisfied and would HIGHLY recommend dr. Song. His staff is amazing, his beside manner is amazing and they were always responsive. And he does amazing work at a grad price. Updated on 21 Sep 2020:It’s been a year and I LOVE the results. Here are a few things with recovery that I didn’t expect (but it is still SO worth it and I will do it again)- bloating and swelling for me slowed down around month 6 or 7. At month 12 I swell/bloat around that time of month or I if went super intense on a workout that involved a lot of core, plyo etc.-My stomach is still numb-ish. I can now feel it but nothing close to before the surgery -stomach still feels tight (like I am wearing a girdle inside ... which technical I am). Most of the time it doesn’t bother me. But some days I def feel it Overall Dr. Song and his staff is amazing, I love my results, and it was worth every penny More

Tummy tuck surgery set for 1/18/19 - Hello all!I am 38 years old and I have an upcoming tummy tuck surgery . I’m so nervous and excited at the same time! I hope I can meet someone who is having surgery close to mines. I would love to share our experiences together. I have two beautiful daughters 19 and 6 . I currently weigh 152 lbs and am 5’6. Big stomachs run in my family and I have had a stomach since I was a teen. I have been hiding my body all my life and I want to feel more confident with myself. I look so deformed with my chicken legs and huge gut!I have read so many stories on here and I want to share my journey with you all.Updated on 9 Jan 2019:These are my before pics. For years I have wore huge baggy clothes to conceal my stomach. I really hate going out because I don’t have clothes that fit well on me. I’m also tired of people asking if I am pregnant! LolSurgery doc is Phillip Nakano, Duluth GAUpdated on 19 Jan 2019:I’m surprised at how well my recovery is going. I believe I had some lingering side effects from the anesthesia. I was shaking, had a light head, and hyperventilated every now and then.I called my PS and he said he will meet me at the nearest hospital. We all just wanted to make sure it wasn’t a pulmonary embolism. My PS wanted for it to be checked out right away. The ER was packed so bad but my doc was able to get me in. This doctor was super supportive and stayed in the hospital with me to wait for my results from the ER doc. He stayed with me from 9 pm to 2:00 am. I’m so blessed to have him as my surgeon. Everyone in the hospital couldn’t believe I just had surgery that morning, they said most people are so uncomfortable and are pretty much out of it on the day of surgery. Not me, in fact I have not slept yet since my surgery which finished less than 12 hours ago.The results came out negative and we were all relieved. I’m feeling so much better now and haven’t had an episode yet.Updated on 19 Jan 2019:I wasn’t sure if my other post will post . I wanted to clarify the part where I said recovery is going well besides the hyperventilating scare.It’s going well because I don’t feel any pain. It just feels like I did 1000 crunches. I probably can stand more upright but I’m scared that something might split LOL. I don’t see anything leaking around my drain sites or anywhere else at the moment . My drains are collecting a good amount of fluid and the color of the drainage looks good.This is Day 1 I will update you all on how it’s going after awhile. Updated on 20 Jan 2019:Swell hell as everyone calls it. I have a tight binder on so I couldn’t really tell if it was swollen but I did feel uncomfortable. The only pain I felt was the stinging from the drains . Also, my back hurts because I’m still hunching over. Now it’s day 3 in the morning and I feel pretty good. I take my pain medication before the pain starts so that has been helping me. My throat feels a little sore now due to the intubation from general anesthesia. I make sure that I eat a lot of protein and stay hydrated. I’m taking my multivitamin, iron, b-complex, and bromelain . I heard it gets better as the days go by. I’m just so happy that I can feel better about myself. I don’t even care what my stomach looks like. I’m just glad that the apron is gone!Updated on 25 Jan 2019:Dr Nakano was very supportive throughout this whole process. Nurse Lisa is always there to help and answer any questions one may have. Bedside manners, patience, and excellent care was given by the whole staff and I can’t ask for a better team. The best plastic surgeon ever!Updated on 27 Jan 2019:Hope everyone is doing ok..here is an updated pic of me during my dressing change. I’m still hunched over so of course my back is killing me. I’m just so happy that I don’t have to wear huge jackets, sweaters, and shirts to hide More

Highly Recommend Dr. Song - I had lots of loose skin in my pannus area from weight loss and carrying twins. Dr. Song was knowledgable, kind, and took his time with me. He and his staff made the whole process feel seamless and I'm thrilled with my results. I am now able to wear bottoms without having to cover my lower abdomen. The recovery time was much less than anticipated and I was back to work within a month. The first two weeks post op were the hardest, but it was worth it! Dr. Song's bedside manner is impeccable and he truly cares for his patients. His nurses, Adriana & Kate, were super sweet and made me feel as ease while I was in the office. My scar is healing nicely and my husband is shocked at how great the scar turned out. If you are considering a panniculectomy/ abdominoplasty, I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mike Song. I'll definitely be going back for future procedures. More

Surgery done! I can't wait to see what's underneath the binder. - Hello all, I had my tummy tuck surgery with Dr. Song on 7/26 with the Exparel shot. Today I am 3 days post op and for the most part I feel okay. The binder gets really uncomfortable overnight and I feel really tight, but that's to be expected. Thankfully, I only received one drain and it's already slowing down. So far, so good and I'm happy I went through with it. I can't wait to see what's underneath the binder. I'm still taking all my meds along with 1000 mg of vitamin C and my vitamin B complex. Has anyone experienced a bubbly type feeling in their stomach post op? This started yesterday near the pubic line but I've also felt it in the middle. More

Loving my Tummy - If you are considering a Tummy Tuck I would definitely suggest it. Best money I have ever spent. The only think I don’t like is the swelling. It’s been about 3 months and I do still get swelling especially at the end of the day so wear your garment. Dr. Song did a great job. The recovery wasn’t bad at all. I was back at work in 12 days. I was still tight but no pain at all. More

Standard Tummy Tuck and lipo of the Flanks - I been researching for long time on TT, I was told by my liver Dr. not to go overseas as this is an important surgery, I came across Primacare Duluth on the American Association of Plastic Surgery, I started checking on pics for different Drs. and the pictures for Dr. Song caught my eyes, well I did a lot of search online and I end it up on real self, wow comments on this blog makes me positive about what I will go through! I finally met Dr. Song Monday July 8th 2019 and he is a charming humble person answered all my questions and gave me his personal card for additional ones, he recommended a full TT, I am just waiting on permission from my job to be able to call and set up my date for TT, I will keep you guys posted since I found this blog really really helpful if you need a little push for it.

I made it to the flat side! - I had a tummy tuck/muscle repair/lipo. My expeirence was great. I arrived at 0630, my vitals were taking, changed into gown and footies, urine pregnancy test completed. Dr.Song came in and marked me up, then the anesthesiologist came and started the iv, waited about 10mins, nurse came in and escorted me to the or. Climbed onto sx table, laid down, nurse said lift your leg let move this pillow under your knees and then i woke up in the recovery room. My goodness that anesthesia sleep is the bomb! Nurse helped me get dressed to go pee, sat on toilet what to me seemed like 5 mins, although my cousin says it was more like 30 mins, still no pee. So they take me back to the recovery room and place a foley, which was unpleasent. Then we were off to home, cousin helped me up the stairs, medicated me and i was off to lala land for a couple hours, woke up walked, ate and took medications, then back to sleep, this was my routine for the first week. 6 days later back at docs office and he says my drains can come out, lawd i was a scardy cat. The nurse removed the right one relatively no problem, but my gosh the left one was extremely tender, so much so i had her arm in a vice grip. After the trauma i finally got a look at my flat stomach, i had not seen her like this since 1990! I have to say dr. Song was very professional and patient, he did not try to up sale me, infact i wanted more lipo on my back. But he said i can do it, but since it has been done before you wont see much difference! The worst part of this process is and was the suture and drain removal. If i had to do it again , there would be no hesitation!!!! More

My tummy tuck (28 y/o female, no kids) - Posted a photo of me sitting. As you can see, my stomach is huge. It’s been that way since I was 10 years old. I literally have never allowed anyone to see my stomach, not even my boyfriends or mother. I’m 5’5 and weighed 110 at one point and STILL had a huge stomach, so I’m sure this thing won’t go anywhere with diet and exercise.I went with dr. Mike song at Prima center. The quote was 7500 for tummy tuck with lipo on flanks and muscle repair. Pretty good deal and he’s board certified. My surgery date is April 26 and have only 1500 left to pay. More

I had my surgery on 2/28/19 with dr. Song in Duluth,Ga. the whole team was amazing. Very professional and caring. Dr songbsat down with me and explained the procedure and addressed any questions. On the day of the procedure everything went so fast and smooth! I was terrified as this was my first surgery, and Dr. Song and the anesthesiologist made me feel much calmer. Also Dr. Songs assistant Adrianna was so warm and caring. I woke up in my garment however I can already tell that I’m definitely on the flat side! I will input before and after and hopefully this will help someone with making their decision! More

After 22 Years......I’M FINALLY GETTING MY FLAT TUMMY BACK!!! - Attached are photo’s of the short sets I purchased from Walmart to wear following surgery for about $11 each (shorts were $6.88 and the tanks were a little over $4). I also attached a photo of drain holders that I want to purchase from Jessica M. Creation. I came across these holders while following Shelita Prioleau Youtube channel where she takes you on her tummy tuck journey. Her page is very informative and I learned quite a bit. Her surgery was less than 2 weeks ago so I continue to wish her a very speedy and pain free recovery. Any other information I may come across that can help the next I will share! More

After 22 long years......I GOT MY FLAT TUMMY BACK!!!! - I’m a 40 yr old mom of 1 that has dreamed of a flat tummy for the last 22 years. I had my daughter at age 18 and have dreaded my tummy ever since. Of course it wasn’t a thought right after she was born but after the smoke settled and we were full into our new life I slowly began to realize that my tummy and stretchmarks was something I would hide from there on out. 2013 I had a BA...600 cc Mentor high profiles placed under the muscle and surgery/recovery was a breeze (plz see review). June/July 2019 I am looking to have my tummy tuck and lipo done by Dr. Song in Duluth, GA, his results, reviews and accomplishments are amazing. I will be an out of town patient so I decided to look into staying at an Airbnb, along with the help of my husband. I’m super excited and ready to start this journey so right now I’m trying to learn patience. I find mysef on this site day in and day out whenever I thought about getting something done. This time I finally acted on it. More

Tummy Tuck Scar Revision - Dr. Song performed my tummy tuck on May 17, 2018 & at my 6 month check up in November There was an area of extra skin present that bothered me, I felt like it could be flatter. Dr Song said that he could do a local procedure to remove that area. Once I arrived on yesterday he marked the area & I pointed out 2 areas of my tummy tuck scar that were really thick he said let's fix that also. The entire procedure lasted about an hour & a half. I was awake the whole time, the numbing part was hell. I'm in some pain now but I'm dealing with it. Dr. Song is a perfectionist & he definitely wants his patients to be happy. Right now the area is bandaged as soon as my stitches are removed I will post a before & after. I'm planning for round 2 lipo360 with bbl I want the smooth back to go along with my flat stomach More

I was so afraid to have this surgery done but no question went unanswered and he just makes you feel very calm and comfortable about the procedure. Even after I got home from surgery later that night he personally called to check on me. He is excellent. I am 10 days post-op and I am loving my results.

I had a tummy tuck with muscle repair, breast augmentation, and liposuction to my stomach, thighs, and back. Dr. Song personally called to check on me the evening after the surgery and requested that I call or text him should I have any questions or concerns. I've never had a physician personally call or give his or her cell phone number to me. This was very comforting and his willingness to be immediately available was extremely appreciated. He is an excellent surgeon, and I highly recommend him to those considering this type of surgery. More

Excited to Get This Journey Started! Time to Do for Myself! - After searching and reviewing many doctors I have finally made the decision to have my surgery with Dr. Song. I went for my consultation on June 29, 2018 and made my deposit on July 10, 2018. Dr. Song and his staff were very nice and did not rush me through the consult. Dr. Song is definitely the right choice for me. I will keep updating once my surgery gets closer and try to upload some photos.Updated on 13 Feb 2019:Sorry it has taken so long for me to post pics and give an update on how things went and are going so here it goes...I had my surgery Jan 10 and everything went really good. I don't remember much about the day of surgery but the day after wasn't too bad. I had plenty of help with everything which is a MUST! My daughter was really good at taking care of me. She set her alarm to go off every 5 hours to give the pain meds...this is something you should definitely do to stay on top of the pain even if you aren't hurting.....I have to say that my boobs hurt worse than my stomach...most people have problems with constipation but not me...I had diarrhea for almost a month...I guess we all react differently to things. I had no appetite for about 2 weeks, i think because i couldn't taste anything. Lol I only had to keep my drain tubes in for a week! Thank goodness because they are a pain and always in the way. I was also back at work after 12 days however, I do have an office job that is not too demanding.Everyday it gets better. I am still sore and just had to have a couple of stitches removed from my belly button that protruded through and was causing my belly button to have some drainage.I have to say I am very pleased with Dr Song. He is always pleasant at my visits and his work is really good. I know I made the right choice.I'm not the best at writing reviews and I have not been that good at taking photos but I will post a few that I have. Unfortunately, I don't have any from right after surgery. More

36 Year Old, 168 Lbs, 3 Kids, 2 C-sections Muscle Repair, Tummy Tuck, Lipo, Hernia Repair, Breast Implants - Dr. Song is very professional and really care about his patients. I have called and text him several times in the middle of the night and his turn around times is amazing. I will either text me or call my back within 5 mins. He really care about his patients and their outcome and make sure he answer every question. There is so much I can say about Dr. Song, over all he's amazing. I'm so glad I can across his info as I search for a Board Certified surgeon to perform my surgery. If you chose him, I promise you that you will not have any regrets. More

36 Year Old, 168 Lbs, 3 Kids, 2 C-sections Muscle Repair, Tummy Tuck, Lipo, Hernia Repair, Breast Implants - After reviewing several reviews and looking at several before and after pictures, I decided that Dr. Song would be the best doctor. In the beginning, I was considering Dr. Sumanth Pagadala, MD in Columbus, Ga, but notice that he had a lot of concerns by his patience’s. Since I was currently in the process of moving to GA from CA, I decided to do an email consultation. On March 1, 2018, I called into Dr. Song office an asked if I could email photos instead of coming into the office and one of the office staff members took my info and deposit of 75.00 and advised me of the email to send in my photos and someone should contact me within 48 hrs. I get a call the next morning by Dr. Song Nurse Assistant and let’s just say the turnaround time was like Wow. Ms. Wanda was very nice and listen to all my concerns and took notes to have Dr. Song look over. I’m requesting to have (Tummy Tuck, Lipo, Muscle repair, Hernia repair, and silicone breast implants) and the price give was well in my budget. I paid my deposit of $750 to reserve my surgery date which is scheduled for April 27, 2018. I finally got to meet with Dr. Song, for my per- op on March 27, 2018 and just let’s say he’s very professional and explain everything about what will take place during my surgery. He informed me that my Diastasis Recti “(Abdominal Muscle Separation)”, was very bad and it will require him to double stitch me. He also inform me that since my Diastasis was really bad that he wouldn’t recommend me working out for 6 months. After explaining to me about my Diastasis and the sizes of breast implants he will consider using with my body frame, he then show me slides of how each procedure will be performed will in surgery. For my procedure, I was be under for 4 ½ hours. At the time, I didn’t have any questions, so I was provided contact info for Dr. Song and his nurse assistant to contact them with any concerns I may have later. My surgery is schedule for April 27, 2018 and I can’t wait. I will post an update status after my procedure. More

There are truly not enough positive words I can write regarding Dr. Jeff Zwiren (Dr. Z), his primary nurse, Cindy, and the caring and attentive staff at Prima Center for Plastic Surgery. I have a been a patient of Dr. Z's for over 15 years and I can honestly say that each and every experience I have had with him has been second to NONE! Not only is Dr. Z an exceptional surgeon, but he is a wonderful and genuine man. In fact, I have never met two people quite like Dr. Z and Cindy. They are two of the most compassionate and empathetic people I have ever known. Dr. Z has always listened intently to my concerns, and I have always been more than satisfied with the results. He is a meticulous surgeon whose conscientiousness is obvious in his work and attitude. If you are looking for a doctor who is at the top of his profession, is highly respectable, demonstrates tremendous knowledge, precision and cognizance as well as a sincere courtesy like no other, then Dr. Z is the physician for you!

Dr. Stephenson is amazing! 23yrs after having my son I finally decided to get a TT to get rid of my stretch marks & I chose Dr. Stephenson to do it. I'm so glad I did. He did not patronize me just to get my business. He was very realistic about the potential outcome of my surgery, so, on Dec 29, 2017 I checked into Gwinnett Medical hosp where they treated me like gold & Dr Stephenson snatched my waist & got rid of my stretch marks. Dr. Stephenson has a wonderful bedside manner & he answers any & all of your questions so write them down so you don't forget. Ursula (his nurse) is wonderful too. With their help I was back to work in 2 weeks. Choose Dr. Stephenson and you won't regret it More

Dr. Song is amazing! - I recently had an abdomioplasty at Prima Plastic Surgery in Duluth, GA. While I was extremely nervous about the procedure, Dr Song made me feel at ease. He was super informative, upfront and very knowledgeable. I settled on him due to his Ivy League educational background and the positive vibe during the initial consultation. His bedside manner and responsiveness exceeded any expectations I could have had. The nurse, Adrianna, was also amazing. She was calm, helpful and supportive. I could not have asked for a better experience and my results only 3 weeks in are phenomenal. If I ever get up the nerve to have anything else done, I would not hesitate to go back to Dr. Song. He is my hero! More

Dr. Mike Song "He's the MANNNN"!!!! I love him. - I'm bat [RS bleep] nervous, as my original procedure was supposed to be with Dr. Cochran. Unfortunately, due to his death, I was forced to once again begin my search. Since I'd already scheduled my time off, I not only needed a surgeon as talented and blemish free as Dr. C, but one that could get me within the same time frame as my original procedure date. I'll be honest, I'm nervous, as my procedure is less than 3 weeks away, but I'm so confident with Dr. Song. Frankly speaking, I'm a bit more confident with him than I originally was going with Dr. C. Wait. Wait. Don't bash me yet! The only reason I say that is because I really hated Dr. C didn't offer Cosmet Assure. Having that extra insurance was so important to me and not having it with Dr. C.; I was pretty much just riding on a wing and a prayer. Thankfully, since Dr. Song's procedures and prices automatically come with Cosmet Assurance, I can focus on my healing and be prepared just in case there are any complications. I went in and met with Wanda, Andrea and Dr. Song last Thursday and that pretty much sealed the deal. GREAT TEAM!!! The environment was very welcoming and every question I had written down to ask, Dr. Song covered it within his consultation. August 25th is fast approaching and I'll be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. I'm PETRIFIED!!!! My dreams are like none other. I have a fear of being under with anesthesia and for the last two nights, it's as though my body is imitating--while I'm asleep--what it's going to be like. I can feel and sense the presence of the team around me as my body just exists and I swear that's what gets me the most. I'm hoping and praying for peace. My procedure is paid in full and other than these nerves kicking in.....I'ZE READY!!! I'll try my best to keep you guys updated. Keep this sister in your prayers and to those whom are going in to fulfill their destinies of joining me on the FLATSIDE--best of blessings to you. I'll pray for you--you pray for me! More

Mommy Makeover- Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift - Atlanta, GA - Today was my consultation with Dr. Song. I don't know where to start. Beautiful facility, friendly staff and Dr. Song was very informative. He explained my options what procedures could be done and the amount of time it would take. I may be doing 2 surgeries, but will talk about the second one when the time comes. My surgery will consist of a tummy tuck with lipo around abdominal area and flanks as well as a breast reduction/lift. My current breast size is a 32DD. They will be reduced to a full C, I haven't had a C cup since 6th grade!! Yes I developed very fast. Dr. Song showed me photos of results I could expect for my body type. I found this very helpful! He also told me that he would keep in touch with me and contact the person taking care of me the evening of my surgery to check on me.Dr. Song informed me that with every client that undergoes breast sx he sends a sample of the breast tissue to a lab to test for breast cancer.Price.... I was pleased with the price and EVERYTHING it included. Compared to my last consultation I will be saving about 2,000. And I was told 100% of what I pay is refundable. And the price also includes insurance, which covers specific complications within 30 days of surgery up to the maximum benefit. The down payment is 750 for sx more than 2 hours, my surgery should take 6 hours.Im very excited and pleased with my decision! More

I am no longer experiencing pain, discomfort and bloating since surgery plus I have abs now!!! I had a very good recovery without any complications. Post-op visits were a great experience as well (in and out). This physician is easy to get in contact with and responds back quickly. Money well spent! I'd do it all over. More

Backfat Be Gone - I chose Dr. Song due to his numerous positive views, his wealth of knowledge, willingness to answer questions, and open honesty during my consult regarding what I could expect. This journey has been a long one as I originally planned to go elsewhere. Let me take you through my process. First things, I worked out 6 days a week for the last year and have now increased to 7 with 3 days a week doing TWO a days! My issue is not necessarily lack of exercise nor diet as I tend to keep that under control. My backfat appears to partly be genetic. I originally looked at going to DR because a few of my friends went. I decided saving a few extra bucks wasn't worth dying and not being home where I can control my post-op care. I looked at Duran and a few others and the botched surgeries I saw on Facebook were too much for me. I was then looking at Fisher in Miami. I hated the way the girls in the front desk/ on the phones behaved to some degree. They were sweet in terms of getting back but they wouldn't answer any questions I had and just kept saying "okay you can book" *in a thick heavy Spanish accent* after I had my online consult. That didn't sit well and I didn't like the pressure of, he's booking early. So that led me to Dr. Song after reading a lot of his good reviews. He was patient (ha) today in answering all of my questions, we talked about some of everything from potential complications to preventing back fat in the future... He gave me a realistic expectation and discussed the fact that I may not see everything I want but will see a vast improvement. He's optimistic given my health & commitment. I was so confident in his abilities that I put down my deposit today and scheduled everything. I'm weighing in at 216 and hoping to get to 199 in the next couple weeks. I will keep you all updated.

A mommy makeover is a serious surgery with a serious recovery, and I'm sure the only reason I'm this happy is because I was in the hands of a experienced, meticulous doctor. He's calm and knowledgeable, and genuinely interested in every concern of his patients (no matter how small---I think I asked him every tiny question i could think of). He's highly regarded in all his reviews, awards,etc---but I could tell beyond all of that, holds himself to the very highest standards. When I told him I'd read how happy his other patients are, he said "I'm only as good as my last patient" ; ) I knew right then I'd made the right choice...and after the surgery, I couldn't be happier.

My first surgery was a full tummy tuck and liposuction on the sides, then I came back, about 3 months ago, for a neck liposuction and fat transfer to the face and Botox on the forehead. Dr. Song always take the time to listen and answer my questions and also make realistic suggestions about any procedure that I might be interested in. I never had any problems after surgery, all equipment is 100% sanitize and everyone make sure that you receive the best attention before and after surgery. Thanks to Dr. Song I feel so much better about myself, I feel younger and beautiful, he always go that extra mile to guarantee the best results.

I did my research before going to anyone and this is defiantly the place to go! It only took me 2 weeks to recover.. I also got my arms done a year after the tummy tuck. I got it done on Friday and was back to work Monday. Also done by Dr.Song. He is kinda shy and straight forwarded when you come in for the consult.. But that's just his personality until you get to know him. He's actually a really funny outgoing guy. I would defiantly refer my all my friends and family to come see Dr.Song. I was so happy with my results he has no idea how much this one thing changed my life. He gave me confidence! I was going to post by before and after photo, but can't seem to figure out how to post a pic. On here :/ More

Forty and FLAT! - Duluth, GA - Dr. Song is a genius! He is very knowledgeable about his craft. He is very honest and straight forward about your expectations. His bedside manner is AWESOME! I've never had a doctor who cares so much for his patients. You will not go wrong with choosing him as your PS. Just make sure you do everything he tells you, he will not tell you wrong. - - Dr. Song performed my tummy tuck revision surgery, he did such a great job with me that I am coming back to him to perform my breast augmentation. After having 2 kids and 75 pounds of weight loss, my breast are flat with no volume. I trust Dr. Song to work his magic on me again. I will keep you posted. More

Butt lift/Lipo/Fat transfer - My motivation for this is last summer2014 my butt was ok not falling due to I guess older age. This year going down on vacation to PCB I had my bikini and looked in the mirror and said OMG my butt has falling to my thighs. So I had to go out to a bathing suit store and get one of those bikini skirt bottoms, pretty though, I was ok with it but couldn't get over the fact my butt has dropped! Plus I have this stubborn fat on my back and love handles that won't go away so why not do it all at once. Get a nice smooth back w/ no rolls and use my own fat to give volume to my buttocks! Also I'm one that has never had a nice bubble butt, but I never complained about it just my big boobs and the inner tube around my tummy from having three boys! Also wanted to say this doctor has done all my surgeries and I feel comfortable with him cuz I have a few medical problems and he knows all my other doctors and he and his staff will keep me safe! Now it's just the wait and get something's in order! More

28 Years Old - I Have a New Favorite Song - Duluth, GA - There are not enough positive words to describe my feelings about choosing Dr. Song as my surgeon. I have had an amazing experience. I am 3 weeks out and almost feel like I never had a procedure at all. - - Dr. Song is a total pro. He is precise, very professional, gentle, kind, and easy on the eyes. He texts back after hours within seconds. His assistant Alanka, is such a sweetheart and they both made me feel comfortable in such an awkward situation. My breasts are near perfect now and the contour lipo looks amazing. I also had another procedure done but I have very nosy in-laws who know my surgery date and doctors name so..... I'll just say- I read tons of reviews, stalked real self for 2 years, consulted with 5 doctors, and even 2 consultations with Dr. Song. There was NO question after meeting him that he was the one. The only negative thing about the procedure - was having to self inject blood thinning meds. Also- sleeping in a recliner is a must ;) If I ever need any type of procedure in the future I would without a doubt use Dr. Song. More

Cant Wait to Wear Bikinis for the 1st Time in my Life!!! - Duluth, GA - Dr. Nakano is the best PS ever!! I feel like hitting the jackpot with him. He did my breast augmentation last year and loving my babies. Got a lot of compliments on how natural they look. The incissions were so tiny too. He was the only PS I consulted and I decided and paid on that very day. A year later, ready for much needed tummy tuck. I had it done 5 days ago. Tummy is flat already! A little swelling and 2 days only pain. Very easy recovery. Beautiful work by Dr. Nakano! Reasonable price...not too cheap but not expensive at all. Very very pleased!! More

2 Big Babies Left Me Deflated. Duluth, GA - Ok so! I have found this site so helpful during all of my planning and I decided i wanted to share my mommy makeover journey and hopefully help someone that's curious just like I was. I'm having this procedure done with Dr. Mike Song of prima center in Duluth Ga on March 25th which is only 5 days away and just as I typed that out I felt my blood pressure raise, I'm super nervous about being put under but I know or at least I hope it'll all be worth it! I decided on Dr. Song after already seeing him for Botox and juvederm, so I'm already very familiar with him and his staff and I love them all, I am having a full tummy tuck with a belly button float instead of a traditional because apparently I have a high BB and the only other way to do it would be to make a small vertical incision across the hip to hip incision and that scared me a little bit plus I don't have to worry about having stitches around my BB so yay! I'm also having an anchor breast lift with somewhere around the 445 cc silicone implants, he's ordered a couple of different sizes to "try on" in the operating room, my biggest fear is not going big enough and regretting it later, He said I have a good amount of breast tissue already so I should have a nice outcome, let's hope so for mine and my poor husbands sake hehe. Speaking of my DH bless his heart he freaks out anytime I try to tell him what they're going to do to me, lucky for him he gets to take care of me for a few days then my mother is coming to stay with me for about a week, I have 2 kids 8 and 12, both of them weighing 10lbs when they were born ???? I had one natural and one c section so of course I have that cute smiley face from that on my stomach with all 7,000 stretch marks I acquired, at least I had 2 beautiful healthy babies out of it all ??

5'6 140lbs After 6 kids, it's time to Repair the Damage - Duluth, GA - I'm finally ready for my mommy makeover. My youngest child is 4 months old and I was planning lipo around this time last year, but I had to postpone due to our little surprise. I met with the ps yesterday, and I put my deposit down today for March 11th. Only 4 short weeks away! I decided to have a breast revision of my 10.5 yr old smooth, round, saline 350cc implants (done after 3rd child), lipo of the abdomen, sides, back, flanks, hips, inner and outer thighs, and a "lower only" tummy tuck revision (original was done after 4th child, 4.5 years ago). The benefits of the prior surgeries were compromised with the subsequent pregnancies. This time I'm going with the Mentor memory shape textured silicone implants. I'd like to go bigger, possibly with a 475/500 range implant so that I can achieve the volume and fullness that I feel would best fill out my large frame. Ps said I could/should definitely go larger than my current 350cc, but I won't be sized for the new implant until my pre-op on March 4th. I've been searching on real self for my wish boobs and I have found some great pics. I'm really excited to have my surgery done by Dr. Zwiren after having read many great reviews of him and his work on real self. I plan to add plenty of pics along my journey, and I would love to make some friends that have/are going through their makeovers as well. More

Thanks Dr Song for Rediscovering my Hidden Tummy..... - Duluth, GA - Dr Mike Song is by far one of the most honest, patient and compassionate doctor I've met. He was very attentive to my needs and he went as far as to deter my decision of having a tummy tuck because he didn't think I needed it. He suggested Liposuction instead. I appreciated his candid opinion and professionalism and booked my liposuction surgery a few months later. His bedside manners are impeccable and I loved that he personally called me at home the same day of surgery to ensure I was doing well. I also loved his medical team who exhibited a high level of professionalism and compassion during my prep for surgery. I am very pleased thus far about my results and experience and would recommend Dr Song as your surgeon. He is extremely patient and will answer any questions you may have. More

42 - Breast Reduction, Tummy Tuck & Liposuction Oh My! - Atlanta, GA - After several consultations I picked Dr. Song. Sought insurance coverage for my breast reduction but it was specifically excluded under my policy. Bit the bullet and did private pay together with a tummy tuck. He spent so much time with me during the first consultation, after I got dressed we sat at a table in the exam room with a big monitor on which he showed me power point presentations about both surgeries and before and after pics that were similar to my body shape. I love to learn and had already done a lot of research so I asked a lot of detailed questions about why he does or doesn't do things a certain way. He seemed appreciative and started drawing me illustrations to explain things. He acted like he didn't have another place to be all day and I felt so comfortable with him. His prices are extremely competitive. I would highly recommend that you check him out. He is young (my age although he looks younger) but his training is impeccable (Harvard, Emory, Stanford) and he is double board certified in general and plastic surgery. Not at all condescending, very down to earth and very approachable. He has been fantastic throughout. So responsive during the first very tough post op week. He never left me hanging when I needed him. Totally thrilled with my results. Actually kind of sad that my next appointment isn't for a month since things are going well (currently 19 days post op).

Mommy Makeover-BL, BA, TT with Muscle Repair - Duluth, GA - I can't say it enough but Dr. Song is the most caring, amazing, detail oriented person let alone doctor I've ever met. I am 2 days PO now but feel like I've know him for years. He gives his patients his cell phone number and actually answers it! No matter what time is is. I've called him twice since surgery and he is very patient and listens to my concerns. Always asks me how I'm doing. Most of my pain is coming from my back from being hunched over. Other than that my breasts and abdomen feel OK. He has a very gentle touch. Surgery took longer than expected b/c Dr. Song is a perfectionist and it shows. Although I'm swollen and no where near final results, my breasts look beautiful. After having a weird shape to them my whole life this means the world to me. Everyone at Prima is outstanding. Jenika, Alinka, Wanda, everyone is fantastic. They never hesitate to answer the gazillion questions I have and they never act rushed or bothered. Jennifer my PO nurse was so kind and Dr. Frazier the anesthesiologist was amazing (I'm pretty sure that's his name but he gave me some good drugs so I apologize if I got it wrong lol).I just can't way anything but good things about Dr. Song and his staff. I would do it again in a heartbeat and will ALWAYS recommend Dr. Song to anyone and everyone! Thank you so much Dr. Song. You and your team are family now :)!! More

He's a very kind person and my procedure will be done in a hospital setting, which I am thrilled about...not in someone's back office...

Dr. Stephenson assured me that I wouldn't have to hunt him down for my post-op visits. I have read about some doctors not following up with their patients. Things go well, I'll most definitely be using this Doctor again for my nose job.

Extended Tummy Tuck and the BEST Doctor, Ever! - Suwanee, GA - I did 4 consultations and I knew after meeting Dr. Nakano that he would be my doctor. He spent 2 hours with me during my consultation and I never felt rushed, answering all my many questions and examining me thoroughly medically. He was very honest and comforting and conservative in his approach. For example, he would not combine surgeries for me because he said it was too risky and said "I wouldn't do this to my family, I won't do it for my patients." My TT alone was over 5 hours so he was right, adding a BA/BL with it would have been way too much. The night of my surgery, I was not able to use the bathroom (urinate) and was on the way to the ER to get a catheter in when he called me to check on me. He told my husband do not take me to the ER - to meet him at his office. At 10:30 at night this man opened up his surgical office to me in the cold, pouring down rain and treated me. Many surgeons would only use their nurses for a procedure like this but this doctor treated me and rechecked all my incisions, changed my bandages and everything that first night. What a compassionate doctor! All of his follow up visits are included in his surgical price and so far he has seen me 4 times post op (I'm a month out). I had an extended TT and he was able to remove 7 inches off my HIPS instantly, no more saddle bags! I would highly recommend this doctor especially if you have lost a lot of weight, this is a specialty for him. I cannot wait for him to do my BA/BL next. I love my new body by Dr. Nakano! I would also like to add that his scheduling assistant Wanda was remarkable and very professional and compassionate from the first day I called. ALL of the nurses are just amazing and made me feel comfortable and well taken care of. You will not regret using Dr. Nakano for your PS needs. More

I'm Sexy and I Know It! - Duluth, GA - Because he was straight forward and tell you as it is, did not try to promise the SUN, but just the MOON. Because of that my expectations was more realistic, and now one day post-op, filing great, and better than I expected. More

1 year 3 months PO!!!! WOW Times Flies........ New Pics!!!!! - Atlanta, GA - I selected my PS after reading a review on realself. I was impressed with what I read so I made an appointment. This was the best decision ever. Dr. Nakano is very experienced in what he does and his approach is great. He makes you feel very comfortable and never rushed. He does not tell you things that you want to hear but want is right for your case. He returns his own post op calls. His staff is absolutely wonderful always smiling always eager to help. I don't think I have ever waited longer then 15 MINS in his office. The office is equip with updated technology throughout the waiting area along with a spa center. Hands down Dr. Nakano is one of the best PS by far. More

I've had extensive surgeries with Dr. Nakano in the past two months (breast lift & augmentation reinforced with strattice, liposuction, full tummy tuck with muscle repair) and both Dr. Nakano and his staff have been incredibly thorough, meticulous, cautious and compassionate. It was only after extensive research and interviews that I selected Dr. Nakano, specifically due to his demonstrative expertise in new and emerging surgical techniques and the beautiful work he's done on highly complex cases. I've had some slight complications due to my skin composition and activity level and they have been completely on top of ensuring that I heal and scar well, despite my complaints about the timeline and methodologies. I can always objectively appreciate someone who ignores superficial complaints in sight of the greater good; in my case, a longer healing time for a smoother wound. I would send anyone to see him - really an outstanding example of what it means to be a doctor and a surgeon. And an addendum - Lisa, his practice nurse, is also wonderful. She is sharp and highly competent with loads of experience. I probably called her a dozen times in the first two weeks and she was just as warm and helpful the first time as the 15th. More

Don't Trust Anyone Else! They Are The Best!!! - I had a tummy tuck and lots of lipo. From start to finish they held my hand every step of the way. They were so professional and customer service driven. I would not trust my life with any other doctor. Doctor Zwiren took time to go over everything with me. He called several times once I was home recovering just to make sure I was ok. If I had any questions they got me right in the office to be seen. I feel like family now. I always judge a business by asking myself, "would you let your mother go there?" My answer is YES! Great work guys. My body looks great and I owe it all to Prima Plastic Surgery. More

Caring Perfectionists - I have had several procedures with Dr. Zwiren. I came to him to repair a botched breast lift performed by another doctor. Dr. Zwiren not only repaired the wreckage, but far exceeded my expectations because of his obvious desire for perfection. I have since returned for liposuction and extended abdominoplasty. I cannot imagine any other doctor or staff treating me as well as this group has. Because of the overall treatment and concern by this group, I feel I am a family member and not just another patient. I highly recommend Dr. Z and his incredibly capable team! More

Dr. Zwiren is the Best Doctor!!!! - I did my research and after deciding on Dr. Zwiren for his knowledge, credentials and office staff I have to say I have made the best decision in my life. I absolutely love Dr. Zwiren and his staff and will not go anywhere else for my cosmetic work. I had a breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction. He is the best and has done a fabulous job with my body. Don't look further he is the best!!!! More

I had a lipo surgery here a little over 5 years ago. The area isn't perfect, but I am happy overall with the results! Dr Nakano is a good doctor and gave me a break on price for a secondary, corrective procedure from an unrelated issue that arose post surgery. He really didn't have to do that and I appreciate his concern very much. I'd recommend him to any friend! More
