Today I am having a tummy tuck and lipo on the flanks. I am beyond excited, I am ready. I am 32 years old, with 4 children. I have a 15 &10 year boy and 6 & 3 year old girls. I have been married to my husband almost 11 years and we just moved to Hawaii, this was the perfect time to do this surgery. I feel blessed that I have the opportunity to pay for this surgery.

First night

First night went well!
I slept in my recliner, with 2 pillows behind me, on pillow under my legs. My husband slept in the livingroom too. He's been a great! Today at noon I go back to the doctor and I will talk my phone so I can take a pic.

Congrats, Tanya. I am 3 days post op and have been ashamed to post any pictures. Your page has inspired me. This site has been so supportive but I guess after living in a world where you are judged by your waist line and belly, it's hard to trust. I'm happy your hubby sent you flowers. My family has been great and my dad in FL sent me some. I wish my boyfriend was as thoughtful. He's in OH visiting family. Oh we'll, he's never been the mushy type so that makes this process harder for me. I look forward to tracking your journey because there aren't many African Americans that have this surgery. I lived in Hawaii back in 99-00. My daughter was born there at Tripler. I actually graduated from UH- West O'ahu in Pearl City.

Your story would help others too, because if your getting through this without a husband or boyfriend, your letting other women knew they can do it too!
Thanks Tanya!

Post op visit

They met me outside with a wheel chair to keep me from walking. Then they checked my vital signs, and then the doctor came in to talk with me, and to take the bandages off.i got a little nausea so he laid me back and patiently waited for me to feel better.after that we went over things for me to do around the house and what to do when I can shower and so fourth. Then he rolled me out of his office and Ms.Jackie presented flowers to me, along with a free laser facial! Then Ms. Jackie walked me outside as my husband went to get our vehicle. So I'm home resting now.

My husband is cooking dinner

I can't cook for at lease a week or two. My husband usually doesn't cook so I went to the grocery store and brought 14 days worth of meat, cleaned and seasoned it and store it in the freezer for him to cook!!

What a blessing to receive a complimentary laser hair removal. I just told my surgeon I'm interested in that treatment. =) I'm amazed at all that your doing in your day 1 and 2 post op. I was in my adjustable bed (reclined) and would do light walking to then head back to bed. You're very strong, I tell you, to be shopping during this time of healing. Wow! I can see great improvement on your before and after; it's amazing!! Congratulations!!!! Beauty is pain, but it's all worth it!

I have no regrets on having this procedure, especially since there was a problem developing in my stomach that was causing my stomach to look as if I was pregnant. I am here in Hawaii to support my husband as a soldier and stand behind him. I want to be there for kids and have a small social life. My motto is love peace and happiness!:-) One love!

My first bath after surgery!

My husband brought me a chair to put in the shower, at first I was against it! But then I said what the heck, so he helped me with my bath, and lotion my body and now I feel refreshed! I love him dearly!

My pain

Just wanted to share that my pain is manageable, one doctor quoted me 1,000 for a pain pump. I didn't get one with Dr.Healy and actually I do fine with what he gave me!

5 Comments

you're bringing back memories! Its been almost 10 years since my proceedure and I couldn't be happier with my decision 10 years ago. My scar is virtually gone and even if I gain a little I'm still flat tummy fine! The hardest part for me was getting those tubes out. Feels gross...like they are pulling a vein out.
  • Reply
I can only imagine cause if I accidentally press on the tubes its sore. So are you maintaining your tummy tuck after years later?
That is a good thing! So glad it worked out for you. I was thinking of just getting a plastic chair for the shower too. My husband is also on stand by ready to help with everything. :)

Post op day 4

I am feeling tired, the last two days I had a lot of energy so today I am going to take it easy. Maybe no pictures today. My stomach is swollen, and my back is hurting a little bit. I also had lipo in my back and sides, and those areas are sore.

Day 4

I'm no longer in my re Linder, I couldn't take it no more.even thigh in the re Linder I would wake up climb the stairs to brush my teeth, wash my face and get dressed. I would sit outside or the garage. Not today I've stayed in the bed all day besides using the bathroom. So I need to start eating healthier snacks how about special k bars!!! There so great!

Day 6

The computer will say different times then I will depending on the time of the day it is since I'm in Hawaii! Yesterday was very emotional as I layed in my bed all day long besides going to the bathroom or getting my shower. So today I won't be in the bed unless I am taking a shower. You know life is too short to be unhappy and if you are unhappy try and fix the issue the best way you know how or let it go. This time in my life is amazing, I can shower and see my feet, I can tie my shoes without my stomach in the way....Now I can walk damn the stairs and say damn I look good with no Girdle on because I went and seen Dr.Healy! I am truly blessed that I had the ability to do the surgery, and my husband right there along the way! Here's a photo of my view today! I'm loving Hawaii!

Tomorrow marks 1 week that I heard my surgery!

I really haven't been in alot of pain, just uncomfortable for the most part. I have so much support that it is very over whelming for me. I have been really trying to relax with my feet up, I have been walking around the house alot like I was asked too. So I told my husband today, I think I wanna do my breast, just lifted and a small implant, just alittle. Hey people say you can't just have one! Lol so there you go! I will be returning to Doctor Healy! They also have a spa too, I think their gonna get to know me there!:-)ok so I am posting 2 pics, one is in a swim suit that I brought 6 years ago. And it finally looks right on me! And 2nd was a sports bra and panties. My tummy is still a little swollen but I am finally seeing my belly button and my back is smooth!

Busy busy busy today

Although it is 2am Thursday morning, I am referring to Wednesday which was one week from the day I had my surgery. Tuesday was very emotional for me, Wednesday I woke up cheerful to talk to my mom but shortly after that I was in tears, like a baby, all because my husband was going to get the tire fixed and didnt offer to make me breakfast first. Then as I'm eating I get a text asking if I wanted to join a new friend with her family and another friend at the beach....my eyes read pool! So I jumped on it, because our poor is very kid friendly so I don't have to get in. But I read her message again and realized it said beach! What a dork, so I had to decline because I still have tubes and I didn't want to get sand anywhere near them. So since my sons friend was suppose to come and spend the night, I called his mom and said let's go to the pool for 1 hour. So my husband dropped me off as close as possible ( road work in progress) so one of neighbors and another women is walking down to the pool. We are all neighbors I learned, and another woman came too that is a neighbor. Im new to the street, so I didn't know them but they sat with my friend and I. I tell you what, that was so wonderful it reminded me of my good friends Leslie,Tanya and Margo! It was a refresher today and I appreciated the laughs and the one neighbor getting on me for being out the house!!!:-) I love my life, the transformation body is going through and husband that does so much for me! I forgot to mention he shaved my legs today!:-) I thank god daily for all things in my life, even the things I don't understand yet, and I'm sure I will in due time. God has truly been good to me, and my family. Feeling blessed!!

Quick update!

Taking the tubes out weren't bad, but they were further in than I thought. It was like a burning sensation when they came out. I am healing great, already standing up and walking in wedges! Just to the doctors office tho. I am not going to over do anything I promise. So I won't see my doctor for 2 weeks! Just want to say one more thing, I couldn't of asked for a better doctor. When he smiles it's so genuine, and so is Jackie who helps the patients, I believe she is the office manager. I feel very blessed!!!!

Hey! thank you, i enjoy writing it... I am a little worn out right now, so I will be quick and simply but I am so happy and supports anyone who would want to do a surgery. I have some to write about but I will tomorrow.

My tummy tuck

I have to ask my self is this gonna make me stronger person emotionally? I did this for physical reasons, but inside i still feel emotionally lost with my self. One day i feel good and then this feeling comes over me thats indescribable.
I am glad about my decision for sure, for some reason im just a little sad tonight.

Tanya, I believe we are all on the same roller coaster ride....sometimes up and sometimes down. I experienced the same thing when I had gastric 5 years ago. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and I still experience emotions I can't quite describe. This is a time when we are redefining ourselves. I have given myself permission to live in whatever the emotion is at the moment. I don't tell myself irrational or negative things like "You shouldn't have these mixed feelings because you're a counselor". Yes, I have been trained to help people work through his/her problems, emotions, and mental health disorders. But, this does not negate the fact that I am still a human being. Hang in there. I don't know what I'd do without this site. I have had tremendous physical support from my family. However, the emotional support I really desire is lacking, particularly from my boyfriend. They don't understand my psychological and physical struggle with my weight. Thank you all for being here for me during this great transition in my life.

Your post was great to read and i will keep it close to my mind and heart. I need to find a good book to read, i am surrounded by great friends and my husband and children. We just moved to Hawaii, and my family is on the mainland. Everyday seems easier physically But not emotionally but my husband and i had a great conversation today. So I have my head up. I hope your boyfriend comes around emotionally. Was he saying to you that you were beautiful and didnt need the surgery?
We have really all been there. I'm convinced that these ups and downs are part of the procedure as well. Turn to the people that love you and encourage you. You know you did the right thing.

12 days post op and i cant believe it!

Im appreciating all the support and love i get from my friends. Even those who aren't registered to leave comments read my blog and text me! Thank you! I was prepared for the surgery and those who know my emotional weakness it came to surface but i will pray and ask god to help me to continue to grow and leave that all in the past. I am here in beautiful Hawaii and i want to enjoy this time here, i hope three years feels like 5!

Yes, he thought I was fine the way I was. When I told him I joined this site and find inspiration from you all as well as some envy at the progress I see, he commented that I should stop reading this stuff. He's just a cut and dry type of guy. When I mentioned being in pain the first time I showered, he asked if I took a pain pill. When I said yes he said "ok, so you'll feel better". He was in Ohio when I had my surgery because my date was moved up a week. He didn't send flowers, a card, or anything. And the evening when I was in pain from the shower, he chose to sleep instead of just being on the phone with me for support until the meds kicked in. Maybe it's his military background that makes him so numb but I can't take much more of this. He thinks I should be happy all the time and not feel sad because I always a flat tummy and now I have one. I guess it's like those people who judge us for having a cosmetic procedure because they don't understand the emotional and psychological toll being overweight has on us. I'm doing better with time and by reading posts here and getting supportive feedback. I think I told you this already but I also lived in Hawaii. My daughter was born there and I graduated from UH- West O'ahu in Pearl City. I bet it's changed a little. I'd love to be in Diamond Head or the Norh Shore right now :)

In denial

I believe that before my tummy tuck I was smaller than what I was, because I purchased size small shirts, sometimes I purchased medium but wow I was in denial. Now my clothes actually fit and look nice. I searched throw so many pictures to find a picture of me and my stomach looking horrible, most I am sitting down, or something is hiding my stomach. My doctor told me in time my old stomach will fade in my memory and its already doing.

Something that is important to know

So three years ago I had a baby, a few months afterwards I went to my medical doctor about having diastasis and he said not only did I have that, I also had a hernia. He schedule an appt for me to see a surgeon, to fix the hernia and diastasis. So when I seen the surgeon he said I did not have a hernia. So I moved to Hawaii ( 3 years later) and visited a PS and explained to him my back ground so he told me I had two options. If I had hernia that I should get it fixed either before or after my procedure because he would not be able to fix the hernia. Ok, WOW! Is what I am thinking plus his fee was 12, 800 which was not including the flight he wanted me to take to Maui. Plus he wanted me to do blood work and a physical at the military hospital and bring it back to him. In my option that was too much to do on my part for all that money he wanted me to spend. If I knew that there was no hernia, and I lived in Maui, I might of went with him. So I am not here to knock him, my point of this post is to say if your thinking of ps, its best to go with one whose back ground is a general surgeon as well. I mean I was not feeling paying nearly 13,000 and couldnt even get my breast lifted and then to be left with a hernia. Ugh! So thankful I came across my doctor. When I first met with the first PS I had 101 questions, and so did my husband so when we met Dr.Healy we asked very few questions which makes me giggle a little bit because I remember first meeting him, and I just didnt have alot of question because I had done so much research. Plus the patient consultant sits down with you and shows pics of recent patients of the doctor and she gives info like, what their situation was. ( Not all their business, but for an example one lady was a runner and have just a little saggy skinny and had a tummy , info like that) This has been an great experience, and now when I go to my follow ups its I eager to ask questions to I can post the information to this site!

Round 2

There is a possibility that I may go for a lift and maybe a small implant. Im all about breast, but I feel the same way about a bra! LOL so It would be nice to walk about with stickers on my nipples and no bra! haha totally kidding, but I am in my senior year of college and I was suppose to go to Panama to see a very good friend of mine, but now she is here in the US so maybe I will get my breast done! What the heck, you only live once, and I am trying to get my sexy back! :-)

At about 4 weeks I started thinking, dang what can I get done next? LOL, I feel you girl!!

The flat side

So over the last 4 weeks, I've read a number of profile updates about being on the flat side. Clearly I understood what that meant, and even though I will be 4weeks post op on Wednesday , today of all days I feel on the flat side! I am still a little swollen but today I feel not as swollen as in a pair of jean capris!

Thanks !!!! I need to post more pics, I have been drinking more water and my swelling is going down and I could fit into some jeans that I wore all day. I was excited.
Wow we r almost TT sisters - 3 days apart! First off, you're in Hawaii. I'm jelly! Second, your results, your flowers, what an awesome experience! You look great! I can't wait to put on a bikini. Does it feel amazing? My bb is still something out of Saw lol. And last, I would so have eaten that hamburger. I saw your other snacks. You're doing great! Food is hard because I think we are all bored and frankly feel deprived, lol! You go, girl! I look forward to seeing your progression! Still jelly! :-)

My profile

So most of the time I update my profile from my phone and autocorrect can be so mean at times! Taking my words and making them something else, but in all I have to say I enjoyed reading my own blog. Through the typos, emotional roller coaster, good supportive moments, and my progress! I couldn't be more happier with the decision I made of getting my tummy tuck. My doctor is simply amazing! When I go to his office, well this last time , I had a lot of questions and I tell you what he did not make me feel rushed and I appreciate that. My swelling is starting to finally go down. I can't wait to start exercising!!!! This site is so much fun, to reading and giggling about how so many of us are sharing the same experience, such as the drains being a pain in the butt, feel refreshed after our first shower, our first driving experience and other little things that were so much bigger to us.

That's great !! You go .
Water is so so important and just avoid that salt some and you'll be kudos! That and you can still enjoy goodies just watch the portion size ( we had a thread lately where we all kinda felt like we had has that gastric bypass surgery cuz we eat tiny portions and stop due to swelling, breathing, etc, lol! I noticed you're military tied? I'm with ya girl. I am from va, but the army brought me to tn 11 years ago. It's hard tone away from loved ones, though you take the cake for distance! I can drive to va :-( but at least you got those beaches! Man oh man I wanna go one day.

My binder

I never went out and brought a different one, however my doctor gave me two, and i am wearing both right now, i think I need an extra small one. I also broke down and brought a scale, yikes!!! I dont like having a scale, cause I will weigh my self too much.

Umm I called my self being careful

I shaved yesterday, to trim back alittle ... I thought i was careful. Or when I tried to lay on my belly... Im not for sure, if I will contact my ps yet. Its not bleeding. He has me to apply tape to my incision everyday it helps to flatten it out and when i removed the tape this morning , i had dried blood thats why I am thinking it was from shaving.

Whatever it is it does not look bad. You could be spitting a stich or it could be from shaving. I do not think it will hurt to contact your PS about it. I doubt you will able to forget about it if you don't.

Sunnysidenc, you must secretly know me!;-) lol cause ive been looking at my tape when i go to the bathroom and in the mall when i was trying on clothes! I will call Monday!

Thank you!;-) I think in a few more weeks, i will be more comfortable in sexier one. Thats funny, cause i thought we would be at the beach more too, but thats too much hair to wash mine plus my little girls! Ugh! But believe or not theres so much more to Hawaii than the beach. But a cool thing is, you can buy a new bathing suit in December! Lol

No because I went from fat to bloated.

Today I am post operation 5 weeks

Wow! I cant believe its been 5 weeks already! I really am glad things never worked in the pass for me to get my surgery until now. My surgeon and his staff meet my expectations and then some and to top it off, my husband really shined with helping me through the first two Weeks. He is still helping but i slept in the living room with me and just was there emotionally too. So my swelling still exist, thats to be expected. Over the weekend I had two small areas that were bleeding, that were tiny. They are good now and not having any problems. I have to say my timing was great too! I cant believe it went by fast! I consider my self to be moving into phase 2, working out soon. Not sure that my body is ready zumba but i can walk!

NO pillows under my legs

So last night was the first time I slept on my side in 5 weeks! I really think it was in my mind to sleep with a pillow under my legs for so long.... I am sliding back into reality............. mommy duties! Ahhhh snap! Next surgery please! LOL I really am going to miss my husband doing just about everything, or my kids pushing the vacuum cleaner.

Hey Sunnysidenc! Thanks!!!! You have been mia!!
Girl I know this week was crazy, super busy work week, 14 year wedding anniversary, and getting ready for school to start on Monday, I missed all my TT sisters though. I need another surgery girl, so I can lay around and play on the computer without being expected to do anything. I know you feel me!!

Picture update

To be perfectly honest. I am happy with my results, obviously my doctor did a great job! I just hate that i have stretch marks! Ugh!!! But if u look at my before pic my stomach was really bad! From stretch marks, to wrinkles to extra skin! This happen when i was 16, trying to be grown and have a Baby. I pray my daughters will not walk in my foot steps! Not only because my stomach, but to enjoy their adolescent years, go to college, (graduate) fall in love and etc. i love all my children without a doubt! I just (like most parents) want the best for my children.

6 weeks check up

Today I seen my PS for my 6 weeks check up.
We went over my scar, my concerns, and getting back into my routine. I felt a little overwhelmed today because I was hoping that he wasnt going to take pictures because im so swollen still. but one thing I really like about my PS is that he listens, he doesnt rush me, and he gives good explanations for me! So I will go back in 6 weeks!! I know I usually have a lot to say but I have a slight headache, so off to bed!
Oh yeah, got the green light to work out! And i dont have to wear my binder but I will because its my security!:-)

You look great and so happy! This is sure a life changing event. I hope to be shortly behind you (just started my 4th week). I've been having strange tingling in my belly, kind of the sensation you get when a cop pulls you over :). I think it may be my nerves coming back. Have you felt that? I was inspired by you to go out and buy 2 two piece bathing suits since I haven't had a 2 piece since FOREVER (or maybe 19). I will post some pictures soon. Thanks for the inspiration.

It will be 2 months on Wednesday

I couldnt be more happier with my decision to have a tummy tuck, I feel great. I hope to have a BA next year by my doctor, because I wanted to do it when I was looking into the tummy tuck, but I had a budget that I was willing to spend and I did not want to finance the surgery. I dont see nothing wrong with financing at all, I just dont want no more bills at the moment.
So I am still dealing with the swelling, It can be crazy at times, i havent honestly been drinking water like i am suppose too, but this week I will.
I have been drinking fruit smoothies for breakfast and a cup of coffee.
Lunch- sometimes good sometimes bad.
Dinner- i have been eatting grilled salmon , stir fry veggies ( bell peppers, onions, cabbage and zuchinni) a little scoop of rice
Snack- a fruit smootie
I dont walk a straight line with my eatting.
I cant believe that it was nearly 2 months ago. Sometimes I lay down and think about that day of my surgery, and all the time my husband was off he did a great job taking care of me. I really appreciate how he was there for me for something Ive been wanting to do for so long. Then yesterday I said to him, I think I want a BA, he said Ok honey what ever makes you happy. Sweet!!!! Lol anyways now Im rambling! Last thing, I am done 9 lbs from my consultation with the doctor. I hope to be 130 when its all said and done. Im bout to start working out, which we all know at the beginning you lost the most weight. I hope to get into crossfit! Here are some pics! Have a great day Real Self!!!

Hi Tanyadrea! You're looking just how you're supposed to look, and you're looking fab! I want to tell you I got those pics up that I was talking about earlier- heluva' day, meant to get them up sooner. I was reading your posts and saw where you got the blues- I'm just now getting out of mine- but the blues hit me like a ton of bricks like at 12 weeks and just stayed with me. I think it happens to a lot of us, gal, and it's just from not getting all the sleep we were used too, from having to sleep and rest differently and stuff, and it's from getting worked up over all our changes, plus our bodies are just trying to clean out. And I know it's a crazy annoying feeling to feel so down, but you're normal, sis, I PROMISE :) and it will roll off- you'll feel like yourself again soon!

Hey!

Wow! I have been extremely busy and my inbox is over flowing with everyone elses comments, I cant keep up with thats out there for me. Is there a way to change it?
I have to say that three weeks ago, I had the blues, then felt better and then last week I was very concern about my stomach, even though my PS had told me that i still had wrinkles because the scare tissue needed to heal and expand. Well all of sudden i seen the wrinkles more, but I didnt want to call the doctors office, because I have to let my body heal. But everyday all day I was stressing about my stomach. So then Ruebix and I spoke( through our blogs) and she reassured me. Then over the weekend, my stomach felt extremely tight, but it started looking better in a matter of days. I know wierd! Lol so anyways . I am here and well , im only posting a picture because I am posting a update, but i will upload alot of pics tomorrow. Oh my sides are tender, and my lower back. But all is well! Hey Sunnysidenc!;-)

Hang in there, Tanyadre! My stomach is starting to be soft but it goes back to firm as well, so still heali. Maybe check with your PS what his revision policy is and if he does it at no charge and maybe that will help put your mind at ease. I was so excited about the procedure I didn't have that question on my list.. I will be asking at my next Pre-op for sx#2. Cheers, dear, and happy healing!

9 weeks post operation

This has been a great journey with some bumps along the day but I have no regrets.
So here I am 9 weeks from a nasty elephants ass stomach! Whoop whoop! Crazy as it sounds, i dont care to show my stomach! I am way to hard on my self I know.
6 weeks check up, i spoke to my PS about my stomach wrinkles at times. He told me when my scar tissue heals it will expand.
Then 2 weeks later, OMG! I was thinking I need another tummy tuck! Lol my stomach was ugly and wrinkle but only for a few days.( maybe I was dreaming) I seen Ruebix had updated her blog and something told me to say something to her and we had a chat about our stomachs and I felt better. My stomach is looking better too, i am still swollen and my sides are very tender.
I did Zumba last night, and it felt great minus the jump i did that caused me to have a headache, i kept going minus the jumps and did a modified jump.
I am hoping that by next month I will be able to do R.I.P.P.E.D dont know what that stands for but the D must stand for DONE! Lol ( i heard that last night)
And I am gonna try Crossfit!!!
So i hope everyone is doing great! I am really glad i found this site, i have been able to come across alot of women that Ive enjoyed talking,joking and crying with!!! I even found a shout out buddy-sunnysidenc!!!:-)

OMG! Totally thought my appt was at 1150, as I am getting ready for my appt I seen I had a missed call from my PS office. It was at 1110 not 1150. My husband was already there waiting on me, so they told him for me to come on. I was so glad they did not reschedule. I have been totally stressed about the bottom of my stomach, because its wrinkle when I sit down. I have been stressed for like 3 weeks about it, and I should of just called my PS because he reassured me that it will tighten over time, and if not he will do a revision. So relieved! Then Ms.Jackie the patient coordinator put the icing on the cake when she hugged me and talked about how great I looked! I really am glad that I made the decision for Dr.Healy to be my PS. Dr. Healy and his staff are very genuine! I am one happy lady!

Time is flying

I know that I have been gone for a while, but I started a part time job, reactivated my facebook and just been busy working out. I have been working out for 1 month straight now, and only missed 2 days. I have been doing crossfit along with insanity. If I can do Zumba I will but my job is a night time shift so it makes it hard to go to Zumba. I have dropped 4 pant sizes. I was an 8 before surgery, after surgery 6 and today I were a size 4. I have cut back on sodas, and white rice. I have incorporated alot more fish in my diet, drink more water and most importantly I dont go to bed with my cell phone allowing me to get more rest.

Sorry for the late response, I am learning crossfit. I am not doing modified moves, however I am not doing anything like pull ups. lol I can do box jumps, and snatches, squats and burpees just to name a few. I am working on my hollow rocks. I just dont feel too comfortable with those yet.

Not much has changed! I am still working out, I am missing more days it seems since I started working, but I am not going to work after Christmas! I have to focus on my body! I love sweating and going hard and letting out a shout as I push throw my work outs. I love people encouraging me on, and then they jump on board! I am loving life!

I'm still here!

My phone is constantly telling me to update my profile.I can say that I was 146-147 before surgery he took off 6 lbs, and I'm down to 132! I have been doing crossfit, and love it! My stomach is still wrinkled, I'm not sure how I feel about that.

My stomach

Lately I have been ignoring the fact that I had a tummy tuck because I am really amazed after spending 10,000 that my stomach still looks like an elephants ass and everyone says it looks great! Well id appreciate it if people wouldn't lie to me. It does however look better than before surgery but I paid for a flat stomach without a bulge above my belly button and for no more wrinkles. It's ok to have the stretch marks but not the wrinkles. I have been working out still and eating right. I will post a few pictures! Hope all is well with everyone, I have exchanged numbers, emails, Christmas cards and made Facebook friends with some of you!!!:-) it's been an over all learning experience!

Had to come and check you out again! "An elephant's ass" you are funny. It isn't that bad. But I understand after paying a certain amount, we expect close to perfection. Well, I will let you go first. I hope you are satisfied the next time. My bulge is just at the top too. Under the bellybutton is FLATTTTTTT, and firm. I will be checking on your updates.

Changed my profile saying I am not sure reason below

The Doctor by far was always nice to me, and very professional him and his staff. I am just not happy with the fact that he thought my stomach looked fine, after my swelling went down and it was wrinkle just like before, at the bottom. As far as the bulge at the top of my stomach he told me i should be able to get rid of that with my workouts, it has only gotten worst looking. I dont even tell people that I have a tummy tuck anymore! I HAD love telling my story but not anymore.

this has been a journey for sure. 1 year mark!

I am thankful for my experience, and I am sad that I have to do this yet again. My bottom part of my stomach is very wrinkled. I have learned quit a bit with my experience. Number 1, dont be in a rush for surgery. 2. Talk to mutiple doctors and look at their work, experience, and listen to how they speak about their work, do they have a passion for cosmetic surgery? Dr. Healy really impressed me up until my swelling went away, I was so hurt by him saying my stomach looked great that I had to seek a 2nd and 3rd opinion. So here I am, I have about 6 more months, and I will be getting a revision by another doctor, who has a passion for cosmetic surgery and is one of the top surgeons in Hawaii!

Glad you got a second opinion…I would have done the same. How great that you live in Hawaii! My husband I we almost moved our family there not to long ago. One of these days maybe :) When is your revision going to take place?

Hey Tanyadre, I am happy that you were able to find a doctor that you feel comfortable with and will do your revision for you. You know I have you in my prayers and will continue to follow your journey. I'm just post opting from my hematoma/seroma surgery and hoping that I get a flat stomach after all is said and done. In the meantime.... I will definitely lift you up and continue to send you good vibes. thanks for talking me through that extremely painful and swollen time after my TT surgery. Whew!!! that was something outta this world! =)

Oahu Island Plastic Surgeon

So far I feel very comfortable with my decision to make him apart of my journey. When I first visited his office, I sat in his office and told him why I wanted this surgery, and how long I have been wanting to do this. He talked about his back ground a little bit with the Army and being a Surgeon. I did not ask alot of questions, because I wanted to listen to him and what he had to say. So after we talked we went into the next room where i undressed and Ms.Jackie and the Dr. came back in room. Jackie took notes as he looked at my stomach. So then I went into Jackie's office where she went over the other patients procedures, and their pictures. I didnt feel as though they were forcing their practice on me. I am looking forward to today!
