I am 30 years old. 5'4 169 lbs. After having two kids and being very over weight throughout both pregnancies. I finally started a weight loss plan and I have lost 75 lbs. I have kept it of for 4 years. But I am left with loose skin in the stomach.
I have been thinking of doing a TT for 3 years now. I have researched, looked at tons of photos, read lots of peoples reviews. About their fears and their recovery. Iam super scared and excited at the same time. I hope my recovery will not be so bad and I will be able to handle it. I am afraid of waking up in real bad pain. Wishing for the best.
I have finally decided and my surgery it tomorrow at 12pm. I have been preparing for a week. Bought all of the supplies I need. I even went out and bought a recliner to sleep in. I have read that it’s the most comfortable position and place to sleep in. Cooked, cleaned, and prepared everything.
My husband has been so supportive and encouraging. I want to have a flat tummy again. He says the scar will not bother him. He will be with me throughout the recovery.
Tomorrows the big day........
Surgery went well. Woke up with pain in arms and...

Every day its getting easier and easier. Iam walking 90 percent straight, trying to stand straighter everyday. Through out the day I get exhausted. So iam taking it slow day by day.
I have made some more picture of my progress and my results. My legs are so bruised from the lipo on my thighs. Some areas have hardining under the skin. Iam trying to massage those areas and hope that will resolve the problem.
3 weeks post op... Today doing good. Couple days...

I feels so good to sleep in bed. But with out the recliner i would have been miserable. I do diffenatly recomand a recliner. Before the surgery i went out and bought one. This website and evreyones reviews helped me get ready for my operation and throught my recovery. Thank you to everyone for posting your experiences :-)
