I have never liked the way my tummy looked for years. Even at my lowest weight of 130 I still had a gross tummy. I looked so thin in my face and arms/legs people thought I was anorexic. Which I was a little....but still wasn't seeing the results I had hoped for. Fast forward 3 years healthy diet and exercise I'm 5'8 and 145 lbs. I like the way my body looks other than my mid section.
After gaining 60 lbs. With my first child at the age of 15 and 2 more children in my early 20's, my body was pretty much trashed:/ when I went to see Dr Jensen for a mommy makeover consultation he and his staff were very polite and helpful, Dr Jensen never made me feel uncomfortable even with no cloths. I decided to go with just a tummy tuck and lipo for now. I am now 3 weeks post op and very... more

As long as I can remember, I've never had a flat tummy. Not to say I was unhappy with my body, but even while perpetually dieting, I never seemed to be happy with my stomach. After having two C-Sections, having my GallBladder removed, and then having a benign cyst and ovary removed, my tummy looked like a road map to me. Even at my skinniest (130), all I ever saw were... more

Thank goodness I found this site! I went in to talk about lipo, and my PS said (gently) lipo isn't going to give me the results I wanted. He introduced me to TT procedure. Watched a video ~ not sure that was the smartest move ~ and after getting the funds together, I scheduled it! That was last November! I never thought March would get here, but here it almost is. I have had many sleepless... more
