My name is Scott and I am new to the site. My wife had a mini-TT w/ lipo done back in 2008 and I have decided to have some work done too (TT and lipo). I just wanted to introduce myself and say hi. Any advice that you TT vetrans want to share would be greatly appreciated :)

Hi everyone. I had to delay my TT and lipo procedures to to heart issue that was detected prior to my surgery. Now that the issue has been corrected, I am planning to have my procures perform later this summer.

Hello Scott and welcome to RealSelf.  You definitely came to the right place to gather all of your information.  It is really nice to see more and more men coming to the site to share their experiences and to chat in the community. 

Have you already set up your consults?  I would recommend meeting with at least three surgeons before making a final decision. 

The best advice I can give you is to do your research, make sure you are in good physical shape prior to surgery, take in all the information you can from this  site, and stay positive.

That is nice that your wife has some experience with previous surgery.  She will be a great help and support for you while going through the process.  Good luck and I look forward to hearing more from you as you go through your journey.

Thanks for the warm welcome Kimmers. I'm using the same surgeon who performed the surgery on my wife. He did a truly fantastic job.

That is wonderful!  Always nice to have a surgeon who you know has done great work on someone you know.  Best referral ever!

I look forward to following your progress as you go.

Good luck! Have you checked out our mini tummy tuck community? Also, Kimmers' Tummy Tuck Survival Guide, while more geared toward women, is a great read.

Please keep us posted on your progress. When are you having the surgery?
