Hi I've been thinking about a tummy tuck for over 12 years now and have decided now is the time to do it!! Reading the reviews and looking at the before and after pics on here has really helped me make my mind up. Due for my op tomorrow morning, really nervous and excited. I have posted some pictures so we can compare the before and after. See you on the flat side (or swollen) soon! I weight... more
Following the birth of 3 children all by caesarean section I had issues with how my body looked, having an overhang which I found disgusting.
I discussed this at my first consultation with Mr Banwell who explained very clearly what could be done. He patiently explained the procedure, the benefits and risks involved. He gave me some literature to take away and read and advised me to take some... more

I'm 42 with two lovely boys aged 13 and 11, both of whom were huge babies (12 pounders). I wasn't exactly svelte before, but since having them, and the 2 C-sections that got them out, I've had a really saggy tummy.

I had my TT & MR on Friday 15th April. My PS said there was no need for lipo, so have avoided the brusing and pain from that. The experience so far has been brilliant. This site prepared me for every eventuality and I felt like I had eaten everything I could that would help and have all the aftercare on hand necessary.
The only thing I forgot to take for my PS was my photo's of... more
