You can’t zip your jeans. You feel like your pooch is pathetic. You want a tummy tuck. But just how much will a tummy tuck cost?

The average cost of a tummy tuck is $6,253, according to 2018 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. But “average” spans a huge range. There are so many other things that factor into the cost of a tummy tuck. The average fee as referenced above does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses. It doesn’t take into consideration how large a person is, or how much fat needs to be removed. You need to be sure to ask questions with anyone you consult with about every cost that isn’t included in a price that seems too good to be true.


Not exactly. Basically, the difference between a full and mini tummy tuck is the length of the incision, thus the amount of skin that can be removed. But you can’t just stroll into a plastic surgeon’s office and say, “Hey, I only want a mini tummy tuck”. Doesn’t work that way. Because of your individual condition, you might not be a good candidate for a mini. If a doctor is all too happy to oblige what is really your desire to save on cost, find another doctor. And it is important to know that insurance won’t cover any of the costs.


“Gee, a tummy tuck costs more than I really want to fork out.” (Need money for Ubers, devices, clothes, restaurants…the list goes on…) So what are the alternatives to getting a tummy tuck?  Cool Sculpting supposedly works miracles. Must cost less. Right? Nope. Cool Sculpting is based on the amount of fat you want zapped. Which could be a lot. Which could hike the price. While Cool Sculpting might seem like it would cost less, it also does way less than a tummy tuck. And contrary to all the hype, the fat zapped with Cool Sculpting won’t disappear immediately. Patients might look the exact same after days, weeks and even months of the procedure. And the results can last less than six months. Oh, and it doesn’t work if you are really overweight. Not so cool.


You really want to get rid of that inner tube around your middle? Blast that beer belly for less than a tummy tuck? Are you ready? The average cost of liposuction can range from $4,000 to $8,000. What??? Again, that doesn’t include all the other costs we mentioned that figure into the cost of a tummy tuck. And if you’re hoping to get tummy tuck-like results, you’re out of luck. Lipo won’t do anything to address the sagging skin or underlying muscle separation the tummy tuck targets.


Medical Tourism is hot, with people hoping to save money by combining a little R&R with a tummy tuck. They’re going everywhere to keep the cost of a tummy tuck down; Brazil, Japan, Italy, Mexico, Russia (yep), India, Turkey, Germany and France. But before you whip out that passport figuring you’ll also get miles with a cheaper tummy tuck, beware. An overseas bargain can turn into a financial nightmare. There are vastly different standards in other countries for training and accreditation than there are in the United States. What is and isn’t acceptable to take place in the operating room will be different as well. Safety protocols could be deficient or nonexistent, and that is not something you want to risk. Plus traveling soon after a big operation can lead to complications as well. Not only can it cause fresh incisions to tear open, but it also can increase the risk of blood clots. You’ll pay for your foreign tummy tuck in more ways than one.


A tummy tuck is surgery. Plain and simple. And as with any surgery, it requires a surgeon who is not only board-certified, but skilled, experienced and trained in the procedure you are getting. Tummy tucks included. In the Denver area, you don’t have to look far to find the best plastic surgeon with all those qualifications, and more. Dr. Thomas A. Narsete. Dr. Narsete has performed hundreds of tummy tucks on every type of tummy out there. Both male and female. He understands what you’re going through and the toll all that excess fat around your middle can take on your self-esteem. He’ll spend time with you, going over the procedure and what you can expect. He won’t promise unrealistic results. Just results that will make you feel better than you could imagine. Make an appointment with Dr. Narsete now. And go from flab to fab.

Mommy Makeover – “I just want my body back”

Mommy Makeover: any combination of cosmetic procedures that restore your before-pregnancy appearance, typically focusing on the breasts and abdomen. A typical mommy makeover might include a tummy tuck, a breast procedure such as an augmentation, lift or reduction and liposuction of the legs, arms or trunk.

“This is one badge of motherhood I can live without.”

Turn on Entertainment Tonight, and there isn’t a night that doesn’t regale soon-to-be, or new moms. Oh look, their little bump is just beginning to show. Isn’t it sweet? And Kate Middleton? The picture are precious. A third little royal. Instagrams of “adorable”, flood the site. What they never show is how un-cute mom’s body becomes after the big event. Selfies of over sucked, and pulled breasts and nipples? Tummies that tend to flop with all that extra 9-month weight gain? I am the proudest mom there can be. Except for the physical toll it can take. Why does life-changing have to go hand and hand with body changing? I need a mommy makeover.

“Gratifying, exciting, rewarding…what about stretched, saggy and droopy?”

Motherhood is a feeling that can’t be compared with anything else. Who knew love could sweep you up and carry you to such an unimaginably incredible state? Who knew this love could also sweep your body up into an unrecognizable version of yourself? There’s nothing that connects you more to your angel than nursing. There’s nothing that can deflate your breasts more than nursing. And then there are stretch marks and bigger and darker areolas. Doesn’t seem like a fair trade. My pre-baby body was something to brag about if I say so myself. Tight, toned, bikini-flaunting fabulous. My husband would agree, I’m sure. Now, I’m pretty sure he wonders what happened to it as much as I do. Even though he would never-ever as much as breathe the thought. No one is coo-ing over this.

“Our family’s growing, and so is my body.”

Baby number three. I’ve finally mastered the mechanics and challenges of taking care of more than baby number one. (Actually, baby one, is Alina, baby two, Bryan and baby three, Mirabel). And I wouldn’t exactly call them babies anymore. The youngest is already in kindergarten. (How time flies.) What I’m increasingly having trouble coping with is the shape all three have left my body in. I never did lose those last ten pounds. I actually gained, and kept more. Without a bra, my breasts are well…just depressing. I haven’t worn anything body fitting in years. The clothes I wear now could still actually pass as early pregnancy cover ups. When I have time, (wait…does any really busy mom have time?) I try to hit the gym, “try” being the operative word. I’ve bookmarked dozens of YouTube weight loss and toning videos, but somehow, get derailed laughing my butt off at videos of babies riding Roombas.

“It’s not just that I let myself go.

My postpartum depression seemed to last as long as my body remained so disgusting in my eyes. I’m still perpetually overwhelmed. OK, you’re supposed to gain some weight when you’re pregnant. But no one says you should keep it on for years. I was at the point of just ready to give up. I eat well and exercise, but nothing changes. That’s not me in the mirror. I love my kids, but I hate my body. Even after I stopped nursing (and that was a long time ago), my breasts stayed 2 sizes larger. And not in a sexy way. Bra-less, I felt hopeless. Everything seems out of proportion, and not just my breasts. The only thing that shrunk was my self-esteem.

I made sure I got the right surgeon for my makeover.”

Getting a mommy makeover (that’s what they call it when you get a full body boost), seemed like a more intense process than just getting one thing done. Breasts, lipo, tummy…it’s a lot. So it was imperative I found the absolute best plastic surgeon to do it. I mean I was turning my whole body over to them. Fortunately, I had a friend who had already had a makeover, and it renewed both her body and her spirit. Her surgeon was Dr. Thomas A. Narsete. He had performed literally hundreds of makeovers, leaving hundreds of frustrated women happy through the roof. His skill and expertise is unparalled; his techniques and technology the most advanced in the field. He spends a lot of time explaining what the surgery entails, letting you know that you can also do it in stages if you want. Whichever way is right for you, the results will be the same. Unbelievable. And wouldn’t you just love that?

Fat Freezing: Cryolipolysis – I wish I’d really known

Fat Freezing: Cryolipolysis, which is the medical term for fat freezing, is a medical treatment used to destroy fat cells under your skin.

“I Bought Into the Hype.”

There it was; the newest, greatest weight loss fat wonder. The magical fat melter. Oh, the promises. Oh, the praise. Banish the bulges forever. Lose the love hands. Undouble (or even un-triple) that beyond chubby chin. Abolish those flabby abs. Get those stubborn inner thighs, back and arms. It was a celeb sensation. You couldn’t turn the page of a fashion magazine, watch enough talk shows, or be Twittered about it enough. “Yes, I thought.” “Yes.” A fat removal fairy tale with absolutely, positively, guaranteed happy endings. Personally, I’m not one of those people who buys into those kind of unproven oaths. Upon thinking about it some more and doing more research, I discovered that some fairy tales can turn into horror stories. Off came the rose-colored glasses. Fortunately, (from all I’ve heard) I didn’t give fat freezing the green light.

“The Proof is in the Popsicles.”

 You’re going to love this one. Where did the concept for fat freezing come from? Some Stephen Hawkins kind of genius? Are you sitting? Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD—realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells. The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind Cryolipolysis®, the proven science on which the fat freezing procedure is based. Enough to give you the chills.

“There Are a Lot of Words for It”

So, suddenly fat freezing was the word. And so many good ones to choose from: non-invasive, economical, miraculous, amazing, incomparable, tantalizing, revolutionary, unbelievable…go on, Google the Thesaurus under synonyms for “staggering.” But the more I read (and I read, and read more) a host of other words came up: painful, expensive, ineffective, imprecise, uneven. Now that’s what I call really unbelievable. While they claim the side effects are mild, you are still pulled, tucked, pinched and sucked from repeatedly, even in one area, over and over. And even more when you consider all the sessions they say you need to get any results. Oh, and then expect the same thing for every part of your body you want to fat freeze. Oh, my word.

“Who’s Paddling the Fat Boat?”

Here’s another good question to ask; who, exactly is at the helm of the fat freezing procedure. More often than you think, it isn’t always done by a board certified plastic surgeon. Those vacuum-like tools are often in the hands of someone who might not have had much training. Sort of similar to all the relatively untrained folks administering Botox. (My dentist offers that service, if you can believe it.) Be totally assured, fat freezing is still (and should be) a medical process. They’re not love paddles for love handles. Not only do some of the individuals performing the process lack the skill needed, the machines themselves, have limitations in terms of fine-tuning fat removal the way an artful, precise and skilled plastic surgeon might by hand. And forget about anyone performing fat freezing on themselves. Yet, they do. Another terrible trend. There are fat freezing devices listed all over the web: “Do it yourself. Save even more money. It’s safe, effective. And it only costs $399…$129.99…$69.99…” I even saw one on eBay for $2650.00. Crazy would be putting it mildly.

“It Cost a Bundle, but it Didn’t Pay.”

I went for it. And there’s no question I’d never do it again. I certainly didn’t feel great afterward in a lot of ways. The pain was horrible; I couldn’t even sleep for three nights, and the doctor who did it prescribed prescription painkillers, assuring me it would go away. (Pain killer addiction, anyone?). I thought I’d go in for one treatment and come out svelte and sexually tempting. One treatment? Try three or four. If I did less, the doctor said it wouldn’t work the way it was supposed to. I thought I was taking the easier, less expensive road as compared to getting liposuction.  But each session was extremely expensive. I did three treatments because I wanted great results, but to my great dismay, the results were VERY subtle. I ended up dropping what to me was a small fortune for something that didn’t change anything. Once you get started, it doesn’t stop adding up. To anything but regret. To say it was a pain, is understatement.

“Liposuction is the Gold Standard.”

Unlike fat freezing which has only been around for ten years, liposuction has been a proven, safe way to sculpt and define areas of your body for 27 years. People think liposuction is more expensive, and requires surgery. Liposuction is done in a single treatment with dramatic results. “Wow” results. Pressing fat freezing paddles on your skin is like letting a vacuum loose on your fat. It can be extremely painful, and each time you subject yourself to it, it hurts all over again.(Sounding less and less appealing?)  Just as liposuction is the gold standard for getting the look you want, Thomas A. Narsete, MD, is the gold standard of cosmetic board-certified surgeons performing the procedure. He has an artistic eye. He has incomparable expertise and experience. He wants you to understand the differences between fat freezing and liposuction, and understand why liposuction is the smarter, more dramatic choice. Don’t be fooled by the fat freezing frenzy. Get the facts. Then get on the phone and call Dr. Narsete for a consultation.

Mommy Makeover – I’m pregnant?

Mommy Makeover: any combination of cosmetic procedures that restore your before-pregnancy appearance, typically focusing on the breasts and abdomen. A typical makeover might include a tummy tuck, a breast procedure such as an augmentation, lift or reduction and liposuction of the legs, arms or trunk. 

“I dreamt of having children my whole life.”

If you grew up playing “mommy”, you weren’t alone. Having children and building a family goes back to before men could speak. Hey, that’s how we got here. So, you get married (or today, maybe not) and plan (or not- “surprise”!) Your husband was beyond excited he was going to be a dad. And your parents becoming grandparents? Over the moon. The world seems happy for you. You glow enough to warrant your well-wishers wearing shades. Your dreams all follow the perfection pathway—an easy pregnancy, reasonable weight gain, easy birth and 10 amazing little fingers, 10 wiggly little toes. Oh, and happily ever after.

“I got so big, my breasts were huge.”

It’s funny, you’ve seen pregnant women all around you. Celebs walk the runway showing off their growing breasts and baby bumps. They all look beautiful. Enviable.  They never get morning sickness. It’s not in their script, you’re sure.  But let’s talk about you. Besides just eating for two, you get to shop for two. O.K., that’s cool. But as your pregnancy progresses, you just start to feel heavy and often uncomfortable—a real slug. As your stomach expands, your ankles swell. Food cravings rule you (it’s true, don’t ask). Your stomach grows (and grows more than you thought possible, and as it does, it can get to a point where even expands-o-pants dig in. “How much have you gained”? people ask?  In addition to your bigtime growing belly, your breasts go through a lot of changes in preparation for nursing. Your breasts may feel itchy as the skin stretches, and you may even develop stretch marks on them. You may be able to see veins under the skin of your breasts, and you may find that your nipples are getting bigger and darker. After the first few months, your areolas – the pigmented circles around your nipples – will also be bigger and darker. An increase in blood volume makes breast tissue swell–possibly by as much as two cup sizes larger in preparation for nursing. If it’s your first child, it can be somewhat of a shock. If it’s not, you know what you’re in for. Oh, well, pregnancy is such a gift, and nursing forms such a bond.

“Is this my body?”

You’ve stopped nursing and suddenly you’re looking at someone else’s body in the mirror. You can have sagging breasts, uneven breasts, decreased breast volume, drooping nipples and stretched areolas (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). You blink, open your eyes, and yikes, it’s still all there. Or, in other cases, your breasts can become so much larger after childbirth that they are out of proportion with the rest of your body and they cause back pain.

Then there’s the flabby abs. Yikes! Your tummy has loose skin and stretch marks and your waistline has become thick and undefined. It can come as a shock that something so loving and beautiful as having a child, can take such a toll. And even if you manage to find the time to diet and exercise, those “last pounds” just won’t come off. How many time have you heard that one? It’s not just a matter of “letting yourself go”. The sight of all this can shock even the slimmest, most self-assured woman.  Worst of all, much of it can be permanent and can only be changed by surgery.

“I need a makeover.”

Time to take care of you.

You want your pre-pregnancy body back.

Flat as a board? Flat out unacceptable.

Nipples pointing down?

What’s the point of staying down with that?

You’re young. Whether you’re 25 or 40.  Why not look and feel young? When you’re dressed, no one sees it. But you know it’s there. And the thought of being attractive to your husband is beyond comprehension. What must he think?

To describe the desire for mothers to look and feel the way they did before having families, the term “Mommy Makeover” was born. A Mommy Makeover can restore confidence in your physical appearance. It can give you renewed sense of self. You can love your children and still think about yourself and how you feel as a woman and not just a mother. In addition to being a body changer, a Mommy Makeover can be an attitude changer. Who wouldn’t want t

“How in the world are you going to do this?”

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has revealed that as many as 62-percent of mothers seek plastic surgery to get their pre-baby figures back. There are multiple procedures to correct multiple issues. Every woman is different. The procedures listed below, can be done over time or all at once. It depends what your goals are when consulting with your surgeon.

  • Tummy Tuck – A Tummy Tuck removes loose, excess skin and fat, especially in the lower abdomen below the belly button. It can also remove stretch marks. If you’ve had a C-section, you’ll probably have unsightly fat hanging over your surgical scar.
  • Breast Lift – A breast lift elevates and reshapes deflated, sagging and uneven breasts, decreased breast volume, drooping nipples, and stretched areolas. It can tighten the breast skin and reposition the breast tissue to improve nipple position. (Back to round, contoured and even perky. Yeah!) Women who desire larger, smaller, or more rounded breasts may want to consider a breast augmentation or breast reduction along with the breast lift. Again, discussing the options with your surgeon will help you decide what is right for you.
  • Breast Augmentation – While some women can gain as much as two cup sizes during pregnancy, others can lose as much after. By restoring volume, the use of implants can safely correct dramatically different sizes existing between the two breasts. And you get to choose the size you’d like them to be.
  • Breast Reduction – Some mothers experience tremendous breast growth with pregnancy or weight gain. Growth that doesn’t lessen even after nursing. For these women, breast reduction is an option. In this procedure, your doctor will remove breast tissue and skin, making the breasts smaller, lighter, and more firm. For patients with large, sagging breasts, breast reduction provides a tremendous improvement in shape and nipple position, much like a breast lift.
  • Liposuction – Sometimes, it is just not the tummy or breasts that have changed. The stubborn, leftover pounds can settle anywhere. And when you combine them with any of the above issues, Liposuction is a way to treat problem spots that store disproportionate amounts of fat, such as the love handles, thighs or back. Why not get the shape you want all over?

“Tell me it’s true.”

In many, many cases, some women regrettably end up with problems in all these others. For others, there are just a few areas they want to see changed. What all these procedures can do is give you back the body you had before you got pregnant. While it might not have been perfect, it was perfect for you, definitely more attractive and youthful. Consider these options gain; A Tummy Tuck gives you a flatter, tighter stomach. The Breast procedures return a rounder, contoured and shapelier look and lift. Liposuction can help you get rid of that resistant fat that often remains after having a child.

With all this, a Mommy Makeover isn’t just a series of surgeries. It is something that reshapes your attitude, self-esteem and confidence. You could actually end up with a body that is better looking than you had before. Yes, absolutely possible. No more avoiding mirrors. Or bathing suits or especially your birthday suit. Your sex life will also be renewed with a body worth showing off. Look into it now. With the right surgeon, the results all remarkable. It’s true. Absolutely, posively.

“There’s only one doctor I trust to do it all.”

And fortunate for me, he’s in the Denver area . . . Dr. Thomas A. Narsete MD.

Dr. Narsete is a board-certified plastic surgeon, (crucial in any search you might do) of those very few Denver plastic surgeons who have performed hundreds of Mommy Makeovers and achieved the desired results every single time. He has a long, successful, beautiful and safe track record, the world over. His skill and expertise is unparalled; his techniques and technology the most advanced in the field. But it goes beyond that. Any surgery can make someone nervous, but Dr. Narsete makes you comfortable from the minute you meet. He cares deeply about each patient and what their goals and yes, even dreams are. He listens closely and encourages you to ask any questions, spending whatever time is necessary to make your Mommy Makeover experience the best it can be. He explains all your options in detail, creating a totally customized plan for you, personalizing all his techniques. And personally, isn’t that what you want?

Make an appointment now. Your time is here. Your makeover is waiting, mom.

Liposuction – If I could change just one thing

Liposuction: A surgical procedure that involves removal of excess body fat in order to improve the proportions and shape of the body. It is the leading option to diminish the appearance of stubborn bumps and lumps from localized fat and help sculpt areas to appear more toned and trim. 


Sometimes you think “I hate this body”. We get it. Because we hear it all the time. You’d be amazed how many people, and who they are, that feel just as upset as you. It’s ok. There’s probably no one who doesn’t like some part of their body. Promise. But hey, this is all about you. You look in the mirror and freak out. What you see aren’t just imperfections. To you, what you see is depressing. Of course, what you’re feeling is magnified. But you’re the judge, and the verdict is you’re miserable. And forget about trying on clothes. 3-way mirrors. Torture. Plus, whatever you try on, the top fits, the bottom doesn’t. The bottom fits, the top doesn’t. And anything knit or clingy? You don’t even think about it. It’s such a downer, “up” seems forever out of the question. You want to scream. It’s all right. We would, too. But being so hard on yourself isn’t the answer. On the other side, liposuction just might be.


It’s not easy living with a body you’re not happy with. Who in the world would want to?  In your mind, it’s like you’ve had those huge thighs your whole life. Your stomach always stuck out. And that skin that hangs over your bra? It all didn’t just happen overnight. It’s not something you probably want to hear, but it’s actually really common to have these “fat” places when you’re young. Regrettably, few of us win the genetic lottery. And genetics plays a big part. Honest. Millions of people have inherited a predisposition to fat accumulation in certain areas of their bodies. If mom or dad had it, good chance that’s your problem. “Gee, thanks, folks.” Not the excuse you’re looking for, but it’s what it is. You’ve been endlessly Googling liposuction “before and afters” that pretty much amazed you. You’ve been toying with the idea of liposuction and the thought just doesn’t go away. Like the fat. Maybe it’s time you stop thinking and do something about it. You can, you know.


Sure, one thing. Something that’s been killing you. Saddle bags, muffin tops, thunder thighs…You want to grab the fat, squeeze, and make it go away. It’s all disgusting. And Snapchat or Selfies? Selfies can be brutal. Looks like you have three chins. So, this “just one thing” business. Just say it is just one area bothers you—like your thighs. But when you really look at it, there could be other things that can bother you in other places, too. Like your thighs and abs, maybe. Heard that a lot. But here’s something you’re going to want to hear for yourself. Good news. When it comes to reducing fat throughout the body today, it seems as if there’s nothing liposuction can’t do to contour and shape, firm and slim. All that stuff on your tentative, dubious, but sometimes hopeful wish list. How do flatter abs sound? Nothing grossly rolling over your pant when you sit? “A waist?” Unbelievable. But totally possible. With liposuction it’s bye-bye pear shape. Oh, and the horrors of upper arm jiggle? Go ahead, go sleeveless. Yep, that’s what we said. Knees? Not really as much fat there, but liposuction can still help them look slimmer and more in proportion with your legs. No more hiding them under loose pants anymore. Oh, and here’s a good one. The neck. This can be a real giveaway that you’re getting older. (Even if you’re not.) It droops, loses shape or fattens up. But once again, it’s liposuction to the rescue. Like other parts of your body, it can tighten, smooth and shape it. You’re never going to look like Audrey Hepburn, but, who does?


First you have to get real.

You want that fat gone? (Rhetorical question) That’s what liposuction’s going to do for you. With the right doctor, you can get big time results. Well, big time in the sense might want to run out and shop. Or, are you sitting? Put on a bathing suit. (Major Victoria Secret Runway Angel bikini? Don’t kid yourself to that extent.) Yes, liposuction will work. That is if your expectations aren’t over the moon. Liposuction’s no magic wand. Be honest with yourself…what are you hoping it will do? If you expect it to make your body celebrity perfect, forget it. Which brings us to another point. Liposuction isn’t a cure-all for obesity. Most doctors won’t even consider using it on someone obese. It’s for getting rid of really stubborn fat in certain places all over your body.  It works best if you’re in pretty good shape and your skin isn’t all stretched out already. It isn’t going to zap any cellulite, getting rid of that dimpled stuff that really shows on your legs and buttocks. And if you think it’s going to make you lose a lot of weight since they’re taking the fat away…well, sorry, it doesn’t take removing a lot of fat to get remarkable results. (That’s where a doctor intensely trained in the procedure comes in.)

But the answer to your original question is a definite “yes”. You’ll really see a difference. You’ll see those outer thighs gone, your skin is going to look smoother. And tighter. You’re going to have a figure with natural looking curves and contours that are more proportional. You’re going to have shape you can’t stop looking in the mirror at. Sound fabulous? It is. And that’s just on the outside. Because you’re going to feel a whole lot better about yourself inside, with confidence and self-esteem you never felt before. Liposuction is going to let you get past your hang-ups and body issues. You’re going to want to get out and start living your life the way you wanted to. Does that answer your question?


We always sort of think about women when it comes to liposuction, but it’s not the case. Why shouldn’t men be as self-conscious and distressed about their bodies as much as women?  Why shouldn’t you feel as uncomfortable in clothes that don’t fit or at the beach in a bathing suit. Even in the locker room at the gym. You worry you’ll embarrass your kids…your wife will lose interest…and if you’re single, you don’t even think about dating. You spend your nights watching Xfinity and men with 12 packs (6 packs died a few Matt Damon and Chris Hemsworth movies before.) Now who’s being cruel to who? “Liposuction? Give me a break.” We’ll admit it, liposuction is stereotyped as an option for women. But guys, you’ve got an issue women never have to deal with or even think about— “man boobs”. There’s nothing else to call it. That’s what you hear. No one knows it’s actually a disease that results in enlargement of the breast tissue. You want to talk humiliating? It can happen to boys as young as 14 when hormonal changes happen. Self-esteem goes down the drain. Liposuction can feel like a life saver. You know what else? Liposuction can get rid of fat in some of the same areas women get it for. Why shouldn’t you want to get rid of fat in your waist or stomach, too? All right, so you call it “gut”. In any language, it can be gone. The point is, liposuction can help give you the tighter, better shaped look you want. Not to mention a better image of yourself. Man, is this something you should look into right now.


DO YOUR RESEARCH!!! We can’t say this any stronger. But not the kind of research you think we mean. If you make the mistake (o.k., we know everyone does it) of endless hours of internet obsession, you could get sucked into some pretty confusing stuff. This article says this…another says that. Our heads would spin, too. What you really need to find out is who’s the absolutely right, qualified and experienced specialist to do the procedure. Unfortunately, there are some unlicensed, uncertified and even untrained people claiming to produce miraculous results, for procedures that shouldn’t even be done.  Or especially overdone. “Lipo” specials are even popping up at spas. And hold on for this one; even on Groupon.

So we have to repeat here, it’s all about the doctor you ultimately choose. There’s a lot of information to find and know when you’re choosing your liposuction doctor, but it will be well worth the work. Ask for recommendations. Find out their training and qualifications.  And you know what might help in this whole process? Get some support. Positive support. Your friends, family, general internist who are all behind you. Don’t go it alone. Fly your thoughts at someone. Let them know what you’re feeling.  Naysayers not welcome.

Next, start with a list. Anything and everything you want answers to. Take it to your consultation. Get the whole story. Not some story they’re trying to pull you into. You want a doctor who will listen and spend as much time with you as you need. Don’t feel pressured. See samples and results of work they’ve done. Be prepared. You’re putting your body in their hands, so you want to feel totally comfortable and confident from the start. You don’t want the wrong procedure with the wrong doctor or just as important, the right procedure with the wrong doctor. Weigh the experience and listen to your gut. All of this will help shape your decision.



Great choice.

Is Dr. Narsete someone who treated you with respect and consideration, explained the procedure in understandable detail and was totally honest about what he can do for you?

Without question.

Do his qualifications and intensive experience in every type of liposuction rise above the expertise other surgeons claim to have so that you firmly believe in the complete and total safety of his work?


Does he utilize the combination of technical skill with an artistic eye to give you a body with an often enviable, naturally contoured shape?

Beyond compare.

Five of the procedures that he performs in his office are considered to be the most popular by his patients.

Breast Augmentation

This procedure is one of the most popular form of cosmetic surgery in Colorado. It consists of using saline or gel implants to increase the volume of the breasts, and produces a curvier look that complements the body shape. Women usually choose breast augmentation in Denver if they have naturally small breasts, or if they wish to restore the volume and shape lost because of pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight changes. On top of this, silicone or saline filled implants might also be utilized to rectify the asymmetry of the breasts.


Whether a person is displeased with his or her nose because it is too small, or too large, or an unappealing shape, rhinoplasty can make minute changes to the individual’s nose and considerably increase their self-esteem and confidence. In addition to noticeable changes in appearance, rhinoplasty can also resolve the breathing difficulties confronted by those people with deviated septums.

Eyelid Surgery

An eyelid lift surgery can be done on either the upper or lower eyelid or both. It eliminates the additional fat on the eyelid and that can make an individual’s eyes appear puffy. On top of this, eyelid surgery can eliminate bags under the eyes, and make the patient appear more youthful and invigorated.


Liposuction is a surgical procedure that consists of the elimination of additional body fat in order to correct the proportions and shape of a person’s body. Liposuction generally aids the patient in achieving his or her preferred slimmer, smoother look by removing fat from the thighs, abdomen, and upper arms. The fat removed in liposuction can be used to do a Brazilian butt lift in Denver, which increases the buttocks naturally. It is injected into the buttocks to produce a fuller, curvier appearance.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is the ideal norm in the plastic surgery field for eliminating excessive abdominal skin. The process is perfect for people who cannot attain a flatter and smoother abdomen by dieting and exercising. It is suitable for mothers who wish to restore their pre-pregnancy shape as well. Some Denver patients combine breast augmentation and a tummy tuck for a complete Mommy Makeover procedure, which helps women regain their pre-baby bodies.

Thinking about Getting a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Famous Denver Plastic Surgeon Has Something to Tell You

Plastic Surgery in Denver

Flat or uneven buttocks and breasts can be a cause of discomfort and embarrassment. Your Denver plastic surgeon can confirm that butt and breast augmentation surgeries are one of the fastest and safest ways to enhance the shape of your body. Augmentation surgeries can help by making the targeted area plumper, more appealing, and more proportionate with the body. While there are several cosmetic procedures that achieve these goals, Brazilian butt lifts and breast augmentation in Denver are currently very popular.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift takes fat from one area of a patient’s body, and transfers it to the buttocks. This will increase the size and curvature of the buttocks, making them appear bigger, more curvy, and aesthetically pleasing to others. Brazilian Butt Lifts are surgical procedures, so it is extremely important to prepare for the surgery in advance. There are many important aspects of preparing for a Brazilian butt lift in Denver which should be considered.

Preparing For a Brazilian Butt Lift

Preparations for a Brazilian butt lift must begin at least two weeks prior to the surgery. Preparatory measures can include:

Changing Habits

People who drink alcohol or smoke need to change their habits, at least temporarily. Alcohol and nicotine can impair the healing abilities of the body, and patients who indulge in either usually take a longer time to recover from the surgery.

Comfortable Resting Spots

After getting a Brazilian butt lift surgery in Denver, patients might not be able to sit or lay down normally. Therefore, it is important that they design adequate resting and sleeping places, where they will be able to lie on their stomach or sides.

Plan a New Routine

Patients should know that when they return after surgery, their daily lives will be affected. They might have to take off from work, or they might have to limit their daily physical activities. They should plan accordingly in advance.

Realistic Expectations

Brazilian Butt Lifts can reshape the body, but patients should keep their expectations realistic. There will be enhancement, but one procedure will not magically give anyone a completely different body. It also takes time for the body to heal post-surgery, so patients should not expect immediate changes.
