After having 2 kids via c-section, and losing weight over the years, decided to finally get a tummy tuck and lipo for the back and flanks.
I'm 5 weeks post op, and I'm healing great!
The first 2 weeks were horrible! But if you have ice packs, meds and pillows ready for recovery it will make life easier!
I do regret not having a recliner to sleep in for recovery time. Getting in and out of... more
Me time. I spent all of my 40's dealing with illness and death. First I had a rare form of leukemia and 1 year after treatment my mother found out she had two years to live and my father's Alzheimer's worsened. Then one of my beautiful sons at 16 started hearing voices and left the planet mentally for 3 years. All of this at the same time! But that was then and this is now! My parents have... more
I was introduced to Dr. Kattash by three friends who received tummy tucks over 5 years ago. They spoke highly of his skill set and bed side manner. In July of 2014 I went in to have what I thought would be a routine tt p, inner thigh lipo, and flank lipo, to my dismay 6 hours later I had learned that I had a few complications. Because I was a prior baser lipo patient (from another Dr.) my... more
I had my first child when I was 14 and continued to have kids.. Not having any knowledge of my fate ahead of me. So now I spend my entire life stuck in the house because of my poor choices.. So I would at least like to have something for myself to smile at.. I love my kids totally.. But sometimes I don't feel happy when I look in the mirror at my stomach. I smile but deep down inside I feel... more
I had three procedures done all at once to get rid of the bags under my eyes, refine my nose, and a tummy tuck. I was really terrified. I cried on the operating table. I got horrifically sick with vomiting and headaches after the other surgeries I've had. And they weren't necessarily as big as this. I couldn't believe that though I was a bit uncomfortable, I didn't feel much pain at all and... more
Lost 125 lbs, current weight is 115-120, I had hanging skin on my breasts and stomach. I am fit, athletic, lost weight with diet and exercise, i exercise 5x a week and work an active job. I chose Dr. Andres Taleisnik after talking with only a few different surgeons mainly because he seemed happy to answer all my questions, didn't make me feel rushed and was honest with what kind of results I... more

So I have been lurking here for a long time now and it is time to post my own experience. I have 4 wild and crazy little boys. I had them all in a 4 year span - two singletons and then a set of twins! After my first two my body bounced back pretty nicely and I was confident enough to still wear a bikini, however the twins changed that! First of all my skin stretched sooooo much with them... more

Need some feedback. What do you all think so far? I'm only 4 days post op. I'm feeling very good. I have no pain and I was able to shower on my own yesterday. I'm able to get in and out of bed on my own. On my 2nd day after surgery my husband wheeled me around Huntington Beach and we did some shopping. Is is bad for me to be staying active so soon?
This almost feels unreal! I am very happy... more

I am 41 years old 5'5". I weigh 130lbs. I had 4 big babies. My first was 11lbs. 7oz. That's when I got the worst stretchmarks all Over my tummy and hips. The other babies were a bit smaller but I still got huge and more strwtch marks. After my 4th I started working out 4-5x a week and my loose skin on my tummy never improved much less tightened up. I breastfed all 4 kids and was down to an A... more
I did tummy tuck with lipo on the flanks and stomach , I rested completely for two weeks although the first two days were the hardest, because I couldn't move without help but I didn't feel any real pain because I was under pain killer and antibiotics, there were pumps and tubes attached to my body that carry the unwanted mucus or liquid outside the body and I had to empty them few times... more
I am going on 12 weeks since my surgery and I feel great. The staff and Dr Sajjadian were very upfront and set the expectation for what I was getting myself into. They prepared me for the worst when in doubt the surgery and recovery went better than expected. With having two children by cesarean surgery, I have already had my fair share of pain. I am very impressed at the progress from... more
Having two kids at such a young age stretched my tummy out and I just can not get rid of this "pooch" though I weight train religiously at least 5 days a week. So now my hubby says it's my turn to be taken care of. We have 2 healthy kids, a boy and a girl, so we are done with building our family. I hope this month goes by fast!
My doctors assistant asked if I wanted to change my apt from... more

I was a healthy 43 year old female who was in good shape, exercised regularly, and maintained a weight of 120 for the past 5 years. I had a small hernia and some stretched skin. I was lucky not to have any stretch marks. It is day 6 and I cant 100% confirm everything as I am swollen and uncomfortable. Drains comes out tomorrow. I can comment that his staff and himself was excellent and made... more
I have my mind set on April 17 or 20th I'm not sure which is better, a friday or a Monday. If I do it on Friday I'll have my husbands help without needing to much time off. If it's on a Monday my kids will be in school so I'll have time to rest. Ahhhh to much to consider. I'm so excited I can't see straight. Only 2.5 months away!!! Still planning on losing 20 lbs before my TT so I get better... more
Hi, wonderful Ladies. I've been reading your journals and learned so much from it. So I've decided to start documenting my journey and hopefuly it will be helpful to others as well to me.
In the last several years my weight fluctuated between 128 lb to 154 lb, my stomach protruding due to loss of muscle elasticity. I'm 5'4 and my current weight is 145 lb. In two weeks I'll have full tummy... more
