Tummy tuck 4 months ago tummy still not flat. I go in to see my ps and she says I gained 6lbs and that's why my tummy is not flat. This is a mess I pay good money for a flat tummy. Sometimes you don't get what you think you will.. Now I'm looking at more surgery to fix this hot mess.. Ive been looking around to find another dr to see what can be done to get my tummy flat.

I do see some results but I'm still not flat I start the day off somewhat flat... I would love to be able to look down and see the girl without holding in my tummy... Lol. I've been out buying new under wear and I must say I can now wear a size 7 so That's good news. Go back to the dr in jan so for now I'm gonna try and lose them 6lbs hopeful it will make a difference I'm trying to get my sexy little tummy on so if this mess don't get any better soon I'm going to go get lipo..

Well hello everybody I am so happy to say that I am going to have more surgery to remove some fat from my tummy.... My ps dr say its only a little and the surgery will last only a hour... hey! I'm just trying to get my sexy tummy on just in time for the summer... Also my dr say I lost 4 more lbs I would be happy if I could get down to 140. Weight lost and surgery is not easy sometimes I hear people say that surgery is the easy way out They just wish they could get it....lol. There is nothing easy about surgery and if someone think that it is well then something is really wrong upstairs...lol. Ladies wish me good luck....

Hi everybody I made it lipo of the tummy and sides...

Hi everybody I made it lipo of the tummy and sides two days ago and I feel fine... The only part I did not like was waking up from the anesthesia but once I got that out my system I was good I only had to take a extra Tylenol.. My surgery was Thursday and today is Saturday and I'm up cooking and doing my hair.... Let it be told a tummy tuck is much harder the recovery and all it was for me anyway.. The lipo alone was so much easier...but please know their are many risk with any surgery and if anyone is thinking bout doing this please think serious because it affects everyone in ur family... With all that said I know it's gone be some time before I see my true results..... But I would never do this again..... Took my shower today and changed my dressing everything looks good I'm on the right track..... I will post pics later....

I read your post about taking all the junk food out of your life...I lost 110 lbs on Weight Watchers and during that whole timeframe (2 years), I allowed myself cheat days. I had to! To this day, I have kept it all off and that's with allowing cheat days every couple weeks. It gives you something to look forward to. Good luck on your journey!!

Hey girl wishing you the best of luck with your future endeavors :) I see that you had numerous amount of wrk being done spread within time, my question is did u ever think of just doing what needs to be done all at once? Wen u got ur full tt, did she lipo your stomach?

Tats so sad :-( Is there any chance it will improve wit out having to go for more work ? I didn think that 6lbs would make tat big of a difference ? Hugs x

I've been reading that to keep a flat tummy and a small waist is to wear your pressure garment 24-7 After your Tt or tummy lipo. From reading some of the girls stories and they have FABULOUS results some of the girls say to keep going down in smaller sizes with your garments and this Will help keep things TIGHT and RIGHT... And of course to eat HEALTHY MEALS and EXERCISE everyday.. So I'm gonna give it a try if it has worked for them it can work for me :)

Hey who've u going to for ur revisions?
  • Reply
OMG! we are going throught the same thing! Our body look totally alike and it was surprising to me. My ps said weeks after my tt that i would c my results after 6 months- it was just swelling, im still fat and round-stomach area. I paid 7k too and Im hurt. I havent gained any weight so im wondering if he will tell me the same thing at my next visit. My stomach is still sitn over my cooch and i am disappointed. My boyfriend told me to speak up bc my ps wants 3900 for revision. wth! I just spent 7k on the same look I had at 1st.. Girl i want to cry because I had to put my kitchen remodel on hold to have this procedure done. I c improvement but its not what i wanted nor ask for. i want to cry because Im afraid of paying and getting the same results

Are you planning a revision or going to a different PS? I want to go to Duran in the DR because I know that she will hook up my extra areas that I want lipoed! Girl she would make you soooo flat!

I had my reduction in 2011, best thing ever, I wasn't an any pain at all, but the tubes sucked, It took a while, likes months before I could sleep with no bra, but worth the wait. I have young girl breasts now, lol stay strong

Sorry to hear about your story

Hey hun, I am so glad you were able to get the lipo. I truly hope you get the results you deserved this time. Did you have to pay for the procedure or did your PS do it as a revision? Can't wait to see how you progress. I had a bad TT too and had lipo and a scar revision done after the fact. I am STILL recovering believe it or now. I am still very sore on my sides but I definitely look sooo much better and like you said, it still takes a few months to see the full result. I will keep my eyes on your progress! Take it easy :-)
