Afraid of Surgery. What Can I Do to Get Rid of my Belly?

(Unreasonable) FEAR of Surgery
Surgery is not without risks. But, just like commercial flights, the major scariest complications of surgery are very rare. I have performed hundreds of Tummy Tucks and have never encountered a seizure disorder after surgery.
Being a thin woman which was stretched out with two pregnancies you should get a VERY nice result with a Tummy Tuck, something which is NOT achievable with any other surgical or non-surgical means.
Good Luck from Memphis,
