That is all very exciting!  How did the consult go?  And are you going to have more than one?  I recommend meeting with at least three doctors.  Even if you love the very first one you meet with keep looking.  You need something to compare it to.
I was left with a dilemma after the consult.. mini TT because there's not enough skin to pull down and no belly button revision or a full TT and have a vertical scar as well.. 2nd consult tomorrow with another PS.. we will see what he has to say.. Thanks Kimmers... :)

Tina,  continue with the consults.  I have read that most people who have a mini tummy tuck are not happy with the results in the long run. 

Do two or three more consults and just take it a day at a time.  I personally would not want the vertical scar. 
I'm located in Nashville, TN. I'm feeling pretty much like a kid at Christmas.. the anticipation has me so thrilled. :)

I bet! I would be, too. If you'd like, you can post a review in our Tummy Tuck community even though you haven't had the surgery yet. I'm encouraging women to start sharing their stories during their decision making process. I think it makes us a more close-knit group.

If you're interested in doing that, go here.


That is SO exciting. It's finally time for you! Where are you located? How are you feeling as you're about to embark on this journey?
