Dr. Lund's Patient Story
"I am a 41 year old mother of two who has struggled with weight my whole life. I have spent a lot of time and energy on fitness and weight loss programs through the years. Even when I would achieve success I would still look in the mirror and be disappointed because of the extra skin. When I decided to have a tummy tuck I knew I wanted the best because it was a lifelong dream. I was told about St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery Center Inc. from a friend. The minute I walked into the office they exceeded my expectations. They were so professional and they made me feel like I was the only patient they had. Now when I look in the mirror I can honestly say that I am in the best shape of my life. It is a confidence I could only have achieved through my successful surgery with St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery Inc. I travel two and a half hours to be seen by Dr. Lund and I would not have it any other way. I think he is a true artist and I plan to be a very good customer for a very long time!!"
