I am a 38 year old wife and mother (although I've never been pregnant or had a baby biologically). I work full time from home as a nurse and home school my daughter (who will be a Senior in the fall). I have always struggled with my weight and last year I decided that enough was enough. The closer I got to 40 the harder I knew it would be to get to a healthy weight. So, I got serious for the... more
My motivation and goal was and is to be more confident, have more self esteem, have a better quality of life, and just be happy naked.
I have a complete review with all the details that I'm going to copy and paste from Yelp and Google. My motivation was working out and getting in the best shape possible before this procedure to gain maximum results and benefit in the most advantageous way.
I was so stretched out from my first pregnancy that no matter what I did I had to have surgery. This of course was my last result. I had my surgery this morning at 7:45am and everything went well!!! I had to get a hernia repaired and a lot of lypo done as well. I have been more nauseated more then anything. My pain level at this point laying down is a 6, but standing up OMG it's a 10 alright!... more
Stood straight up for first time today! Yay! All of my jeans and shorts are already loose! Tried on a few dresses that I haven't worn in a while and they fit again! I am super motivated to get the rest of the weight off now! 15 pounds to go!
I am 3 .5 months post op. I am super pleased with my results still. The puckering on each end of my incision is definitely getting better. I would... more
My motivation was that I had worked so hard over the years trying to get the body I wanted. However the sagging skin and small breast would never change. So I decided to get a Mommy Makeover! The first couple of days I questioned myself because of the pain! However things are getting easier and I'm liking what I see! more
I am 9 day po tt and breast lift. Overall im doing well. Im still not standing up straight :( i just want to go in public and look normal. Any suggestions on speeding up the healing process :). I am very happy with my progress so far im just a very active person with 3 young children that are involved in a lot and I just want to be back to normal more
After having three kids via c-section I was left with sagging stomach skin and extra large sagging breasts. No amount of dieting and exercise worked. Regarding my breasts I started at 32dd and ended up with 32g (that's 32dddddd!!!!). Lots of back pain later and clothes that never fit right I can say with confidence that "g" did not stand for great. After moving with my family to Chattanooga TN... more
I am 58 years old and had gastric sleeve surgery about a year ago. I lost 92 lbs, but I have a lot of loose skin in tummy area, legs and arms. I have always had a big tummy, so I am so excited about getting this done. I am scheduled for a TT on December 16. Can't wait! However, I had a little problem with my EKG readings, so I have to have a stress test and echocardiagram before I can go... more
I am scheduled to have my Tt in dec. I am really excited but also nervous. It's a lot of money and I am worried it won't turn out how I'm expecting it to. I have been reading everyone's posts and they look so good afterwards. I have a few pictures of how my stomach looks now. I would appreciate any in put. Thank you.
Can someone let me know if my photos showed up? If so will my stomach be... more
I wanted a tummy tuck because I was tired of feeling deformed when I was otherwise pretty. It just didn't add up. After having two children and gaining excessive weight with both, I had virtually no belly button, and although my skin shrunk back well, it was still a bad texture. Last summer a doctor did smart lipo, and made it even worse. So it was time for the real deal. Tummy tuck... more
I had gastric bypass in the summer of 2009 and had lost 130 pounds when I made the decision to have my TT. I had an extensive abdominoplasty and flank liposuction on May 15th, so I am a little over 3 weeks post-op. I am freaking out because I feel like it should NOT look like this. I anticipated a ton of swelling, but the weird ledge over my scar as well as the wonky shade of my torso can't be... more
I am 46 years old 5'5" and 140lbs. I quit smoking 2 months ago and have gained from 125 to the 140. Even at 125 I had so much excess skin from my one pregnancy. I gained up to 200 during this. Even with my flat tummy I could pinch out inches of skin. My breasts gave up on me also during this time. I am scheduled to have my procedure on June 27 2012. I am extremely nervous. Being a Nurse I know... more
Feb. 4, 2012 10 days til surgery I'm 30 years old and have been thinking about a tummy tuck for about the past year. I had a breast augmentation about 5 months ago and I have been looking into having a tt since then.
I have had a few surgeries that have left my belly with lots of scars and an appearance that embarasses me and makes me very self conscious. I had a hysterectomy at the... more
One of the many things I loved about my tummy tuck was the how I can now wear a string bikini in the summer time and said bye bye to the tankini!!! When I was meeting different prospective surgeons, I always asked them about where the scar would be, because lets face it - what's the point in getting a tummy tuck if the scar was going to be high enough to be seen even with modest undies on.... more
