I've wanted a tummy tuck since my daughter was born 8 years ago. She was a huge baby at 9lbs 13oz, and being 5'3" with a short torso, well you can see the pictures. I knew we would have more children, so I put the surgery out of my mind. My kids are now 6 & 8 and my husband had a vasectomy so I am ready to fix this belly! I weigh between 149-154 (depending on the time of month) and work... more
I've waited 16 years to do this, it was just never the right time, we'll now it is.! No matter the exercise or diet, I always had this extra skin, bulging belly & huh, belly button, what belly button. I can't wait to wear a bathing suit, and cute little underwear with out being so self conscious. I've lacked confidence for to long, to uncomfortable to even be completely nakie (always covering... more

I'm two weeks away and getting excited. After meeting with my PS last week for almost an hour I've felt ready and excited about my big day. He's prepared me for the worst but the part that makes me feel optimistic is that they actually want you to walk around. Sitting around would make me crazy. I know I'll need to listen to my body but like with my two c-sections I didn't push myself I... more
