I have a lot of stretch marks and loose skin on my belly that I have decided I can't live with any longer. Going for my TT and br in less than three weeks. Can hardly believe that I have finely decided to have this surgery after so many years. Flat side, here I come!
Anybody have suggestions for me as to how to prepare for the first few days at home?
including some before pictures of my... more
Just booked a few days ago and it hasn't really sunk in yet. I almost don't want to go out in a bathing suit this summer because next summer I'll have the flat stomach I deserve! The last of the old me (the one who weighed 258 lbs) will be gone!
Less than 4 months to prepare and I know the time will fly. I'll be working my butt off in the meantime because I'm soon to be making loan payments... more
After reading all the posts for the last two weeks, I've decided to tell my story. I am a mom of triplets and an older boy. My stomach has paid the price. I wanted this surgery for many, many years, but felt selfish as at the time I hadn't entered the work force. Well I have been working for five years, and my husband, who is very supportive, said I need the surgery. I have... more

I am scared but more excited. I have learnt quite a bit from this site. I look forward to the journey. I am a little worried about the aftercare as I don't have anyone during the day. My husband doesn't... more

The countdown has begun! Sept 27th I am going to get this THING removed from my stomach and abdomen. One year of hard work, pounding the gym 6 days/week and watching my nutrition has not budged one single bit of my stomach flab. I have lost 45 pounds, lost 40 inches total around my body, and 12% body fat. I am a 53 year-old fitness machine! And yet - got this spare tire permanently attached to... more
Getting a tummy tuck is something I have wanted to do ever since I had my daughter 17 years ago. My skin was always loose no matter what I did even though I only weighted 125 lbs. About four years ago I was in a bad horse accident that broke my sternum and almost all my ribs and a lot of other damage. One of the other things I noticed after I healed (was laid up for 9 months and gained weight... more
I am 49 years old, 5'3" and my two kids are aged 17 and 10. For my first pregnancy I was put on bed rest for ten weeks and basically got pretty huge...so there was a lot of weight gain and stretching. After my second child was born and I lost the weight I always had a big fold of skin and fat down there..ugh.
Recently got some funds so I am going ahead July 14th!!! Very excited... more
