December 4, 2008
Hello Dr. Aldea!
I am doing well. Just wanted to drop a few lines to let you & Dr. Eby know that I have recovered rather well. I am so very pleased with my results! ( I feel like a hottie now!) LOL!
Seriously, I am so glad that I had my tummy tuck & breast lift. My husband LOVES my breasts. I can't keep his hands off of them! He also loves the fact that my tummy tuck resulted in my vagina being lifted as well (??? I guess that is a guy thing???)
I do plan to return for my post-op photos but I want to try to make my waist a little smaller first (sit ups). I want to have pictures of my before/after for my personal photo journal. (It helps to keep me focused on staying fit & healthy.)
I don't mean to take too much of your time, but I wanted you to know that I am very pleased to have had you & your wife as my surgeons.
When I first met with you, I had already consulted with 2 other plastic surgeons (1 here in Memphis as well as 1 in Nashville,TN) & had another pending appointment with another "top" surgeon in Nashville. I knew after the consultation that you indeed were the surgeon I had been searching for. 1.)Your confidence (without arrogance) made me very comfortable in choosing you.
2.) You answered every question imaginable & your bedside manner is second to none.
3.) I never felt rushed nor did you use your knowledge & expertise to play down my concerns. I can truly say that if it was of concern to me, it concerned you as well.
4.) Your expertise is very apparent in your meticulous work as well as you & Dr. Eby's credentials.
These are the reasons why I went through with the surgery. Prior to seeing you, another Memphis plastic surgeon left me feeling rushed (like I was a part on an assembly line). It just was a weird kind of uncomfortable feeling that became a concern for me. After that,I kept putting it off.
Please give Dr. Eby a big hug from me. She really "worked it out" in regard to the issue I had about the excess skin on the sides of my breasts (see my before pictures). Again, my husband LOVES them!
I want you to know that through surgery, you have helped me to reclaim my self esteem. My confidence is through the roof! I owe that to you. I am 36 but I feel like I am 26! I stay in the mirror! I have taken more pictures this summer than I have since I was 18 years old! (My daughter says she is going to GIVE me her digital camera because I always have it! LOL!)
Again, thanks for everything!

Dr. Aldea received the heart-warming Father's Day card below from one of our favorite patients who had Low Back ("Back Scoop") and Neck Liposuction and a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty).
Dr. Peter Aldea - Tummy Tuck with Back and Neck VASER Liposuction
“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom”.
It was great when Kris shared her transformational experience on the internet and called Dr. Aldea a “Plastic Surgery Magician” …
From MakeMeHeal.com (You may read Kris’ entire review by clicking on the title below)
“Kris.. is 45 years old and has a stunning silhouette that drives her husband crazy and…many others in Forrest City, Arkansas. But who would believe that this beautiful mom and successful working woman was sad and obsessed with her tummy for about 15 years?
After her twin boys and a c-section that left her with a roll of fat hanging over a long scar and major stretch marks, Kris tried endless new diets and exercises to lose the excess fat. But none of it worked and she got so discouraged that she stopped all her efforts and gained…some more weight.
… Soon after, she made a consultation with Dr. Aldea and decided to go under the knife for a full tummy tuck and some muscle repair. This surgery has had a great impact not only on her overall appearance (she dropped from a 10-12 dress size to a 8 dress size) but also on her health. Her plastic surgery motivated Kris to eat healthier and work out more. Not only she lost weight and reduced her cholesterol, but she is now active and feels much better in her everyday life. Kris’s results are so stunning that two other colleagues of hers who were inspired by her example are now scheduled for a tummy tuck this summer."
In Kris' own words
"… I was lucky enough to find my doctor on the first consult. As soon as Dr. Aldea showed me the vision he had for me and explained that I needed muscle repair, I knew it made sense. The problem wasn’t my weight, I was close to my ideal weight but my tummy looked terrible. I still wanted to do more research though. However, I was scared to set my expectations too high. I couldn’t really believe that I could actually get results like that. I figured I would only see a small improvement if any, but I decided to go for it.
.... I just thought-whatever happens…happens. I never believed I would wake up with a flat tummy! The first time I got a look at my flat tummy with no stretch marks my mouth dropped. I NEVER allowed myself to expect anything like that. I honestly couldn’t believe it!
My recovery went very smooth. My doctor told me to get up and move around as much as possible and I think this is what helped me have an easy recovery. … I know everyone heals differently, but I believe that moving around really helped me heal faster. I would advise anyone having this surgery to not lay around or sit too much, it will only make you stiff and sore. Get up as much as you can and move around slowly. The only pain I really had was from the muscle repair. It felt like I had done about a million situps! But every time I looked in the mirror I couldn’t believe the results I saw and it was so worth it.
… I took two weeks off work. Before my surgery I didn’t tell anyone at work about it, mostly because I really didn’t believe the surgery was going to ‘work’ and I would be embarrassed because I was still fat. But when I went back I told everyone who asked (and some who didn’t) because I was so excited about my results I wanted to share! Everyone had almost the same reaction—they want a TT too! Two close friends are actually getting a TT this summer."
Please Note - Both the pictures above and on the right were posted on the internet by Kris - NOT by us!
… I guess my only regret is that I waited so long, I should have had this done long ago. I spent years being unhappy with myself, what a waste of time!
…, thanks toDr. Aldea. My husband jokes that I am the girl who really got cut in half by the magician. I agree! ”
“I have waited years to have cosmetic surgery and wish I would have done this earlier. The whole experience was very comfortable. Dr. Eby put me at ease and I felt safe in her hands.”
“My decision to have breast implants was one I made several years ago but never followed thru with. After looking at the web site, I finally got up the nerve for a consultation with Dr. Eby. While sitting in her office I made my decision to follow thru with this dream. The whole process was easy with Dr. Eby and her staff. I can’t begin to tell you how much my self-esteem has improved. The results were everything I expected and more. … I would also like to thank the staff for everything. Keep up the great work and thanks for being so kind, friendly and professional”
"...It is my honor to know you not only as a highly qualified specialist but also as a good human being..." Ear Reconstruction patient
"...Thank you again for taking such good care of my son and his lip - It looks great ! It was a privilege to meet with you and talk with you..."
" ...Upon her(daughter) arrival at the hospital we had a horrible fear that her face would never be the same. We worried the entire time she was in there who would perform the work and how concerned they would be on seeing that she had minimal scarring. Once you removed the stitches we were amazed at the results. We can't thank you enough. If we ever know of anyone needing any cosmetic surgery we will definitely refer them to you."
" Dr. Aldea - you're the best. ... I LOVE my implants and do not regret them"
" When I was being wheeled into the operating room, a nurse at St. Francis told me that I was in good hands and that if she were to have surgery done, she would have Dr. Eby do it. That gave me a good feeling which is a good thing to have right before surgery "
" I don't think I ever would have had this surgery with anyone but Dr. Eby. (The one other consultation I had with another physician was not a good experience). I feel that she is, without a doubt, the best in this area - thank goodness we are not in a larger area since I probably couldn't afford her !! :) She and Carol (office manager) are so great !! " Breast Augmentation patient
" I was very pleased with the high level of friendliness and professionalism ..."
" Carol (Office Manager) was always very helpful, informative and sympathetic to my situation. I wish all my doctor visits could be as comforting and as pleasant "
" Dr. Aldea made me feel very comfortable. ...very nice / easy going " Liposuction patient
" I send everyone I know to Dr. Eby that would need her expertise. ...I think I've already shared my comments with half of Memphis ! Great Group !!! Very knowledgeable. Great bedside manners ! " Breast Augmentation patient
" She (Dr. Eby) made me very comfortable..."
" I am very pleased with my surgical outcome. Dr. Aldea's initial consultation was very informative. He clearly explained the risks and answered questions to my great satisfaction " Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia) patient
" Dr. Eby was wonderful and helpful "
" Very happy with the outcome of my surgery. Would highly recommend it to anyone considering having it done " Breast Augmentation patient
" I love the way I look and couldn't be more pleased. The scariest part of having the surgery is making sure you have a great plastic surgeon. Dr. Aldea did everything perfect and I couldn't be more pleased. He also has a great team with Mary Catherine making sure you are comfortable and relaxed at each visit. Carol who works at the front desk treated me with kindness and respect each and every visit. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else for the surgery. " Breast Augmentation patient
"My surgeon (Dr. Aldea) rocks..." Breast Augmentation patient
" They are absolutely fantastic! I'm so happy with how the surgery turned out. I am extremely happy that I made the decision to do it and had such a wonderful surgeon. I have been so much more comfortable and confident with my body, especially in a place where a bathing suit is practically a uniform. And my close friends that know that I had the procedure done have all commented on how natural they look. You definitely have some fans here! Thank you so much for everything." Breast Augmentation patient
"Dear Dr. Eby, I think of you every time I look in a mirror... you and your family are in my prayers"
"To the families, who unite as one, when entering the suite door one hundred twenty at 6401 Poplar Ave., I owe each and every one of you a very special thank you!
Carol, (Ed. Office Manager) I thank you for walking me through much of the process of preparing for my surgery. Most of all though, I'd like to thank you for befriending me. I love knowing that when I come in for an office visit, I'll see your smiling face, and be able to share with you what I've been up to. Peter, (Ed. Business Manager) I thank you for your patience and care in answering my every question, on my very first phone call. Truth be told, it was your attentiveness that won me as a potential patient. I made no more phone calls to other plastic surgeons' offices after talking with you. Patricia, (Ed. Dr. Patricia Eby) There is so much I have to thank you for. In restoring my outside, you also restored my inside. In all actuality, you helped to create something more then there was before. I had never felt the confidence I have now.
From a patient stand point, it is your bedside manner I adore the most. Every time I've ever spoken with you, I feel as if I'm your only patient. I've never felt that way with another doctor, it's quite exemplary. Not just because you’re a wonderful doctor, although you really are, but there's more to it then that, I find that you have been written on my heart. I wish for you all the blessings God could possibly give. Peter, (Ed. Dr. Peter Aldea)
Although, I've really only seen you in the waiting room a couple of times. There is one time in particular that stands out for me. I had come in to make my deposit for surgery, and had brought my daughter with me. You showed her incredible hospitality; not only, did you engage her in conversation, but you also offered her a drink. The latter of the two was most significant to her, since she had just ask me for one, and I had no change.
Abigail, (Ed. Drs. Peter Aldea and Patricia Eby’s daughter) You, I've never met; but your having signed the happy holidays card at what I'm sure was the request of your mom, touch me most of all. Your obedience in signing a card for someone, whom you've never met was a blessing to me. To all of you collectively, when I opened my card, and saw that each of you had signed it, I cried. For a moment, I felt as if I too were a member of your family.
Sent with much love and adoration, ..."

We LOVE receiving drawings and letters from our pediatric patients ! Nothing cheers a plastic surgeon as much as a letter from a child.
Such letters encourage us to continue doing what we do by serving as a joyful reminder on how much is sometimes at stake and just how much plastic surgeons can improve young lives.
I received the "Before-and-After" artwork (to the Right), from Emily, one of my all-time favorite patients.
Emily was a very intelligent, musically gifted, beautiful girl who was shy and withdrawn because of congenital prominent (lop) ears. Her otoplasty (lop ear correction) went smoothly and she blossomed. (Please, see her touching letter below)
" Thanks so much Dr. Aldea! ...I am very happy as well, and more so, very fortunate to have you as my Plastic Surgeon. I just couldn't let anyone else do any type of Plastic Surgery on me,....now that you have given me actually "perfect" implants....I'm between a 34 D and C. The perfect size I wanted. You did a wonderful job,...and I'm having very much fun buying bras that actually fit. :) Thanks so much, and remember,....you're the only PS for me. :) " Breast Augmentation Patient
" Dr. Eby was FANTASTIC and truly a gifted and talented surgeon! May Dr. Eby continue to work in her craft for many years. She is truly an artist with a wonderful personality which made her easy to talk to and communicate with. She is truly a blessing to many people." Breast Reduction Patient
