Before & After Photos
Confident in My Doctor
Keep the Lights On!
I can now wear a swimsuit or yoga pants without that yucky bulge and don’t have to have sex with the lights off! My regular gynecologist didn’t even notice that I had anything done because the scars are invisible. I really can’t say enough the way for the way that Dr. Hardwick-Smith and her office managed my surgery from beginning to end including the amazing surgery schedulers and her appointment team. Thank you Dr. HS and CWCC!
Worth the Money for My Happiness and Comfort!
