Mini Tummy Tuck W/smart Lipo - Austin, TX

I'm a mother of five 15..10..9...4..& 11months....

I'm a mother of five 15..10..9...4..& 11months. Live in Austin, Tx. Just recently got a mini tummy tuck 6/12/2013..Still have alot of stretch marks but im pleased with the mini tuck its self! The recovery has been a walk through the park for me. No drainage tubes just a body garment. My scar is healing very fast. First week and was time to remove the stitches my skin was already grown over them. As time has been moving the progress is coming along great in my view.

Thanks for your post. I just had my mini tuck & abdominal lipo on 5/30. I have 3 boys ages 13 & 5 yr old twins. My problem area was very similar to yours, which help me decide that Dr. Border should be able to help me too. We'll today is day 3 post - op and my bruises are fading & the swelling has dramatically decreases. I am still sore but not to the point where I need pain meds. My day 3 photo is very similar to your two week photo, so I am VERY Pleased! Thanks for the inspiration! You look Great!

You look fantastic!!! I feel kinda ripped off. My PS says I look great, but I think I looked better the first week. It's been 8 weeks tomorrow, and I am incredibly disappointed about still having a belly. And my results of my lipo of my flanks seems to be going backwards. We emptied our savings for this, as I've been saving for the last 5 years. The 11K for the mini and lipo - from one of the best in CT - I expected more I guess. I don't think I went in with unrealistic expectations- I knew with the mini that I would still have stretch marks, similar to what you have. But we opted for the mini tt with lipo of the flanks, over just a full tt (he wouldn't do lipo of the flanks if he did a full- he believed it was too much surgery.) Yes, anything is a improvement, but for the money, I thought I'd be more satisfied at this point. Sorry to be a downer- You look absolutely gorgeous, and if I had your results, I'd be finally getting tattoos too :)

Hi Rena. I noticed in your before pics you don't show tatts on your back or stomach. You got these after your tt?
  • Reply
Yes I got the tatts after my mini tuck...both while I was healing so I wouldn't feel any pain lol and it really worked...I didn't feel a thang!
  • Reply
Oh yea and also the belly ring too!! :) all in the healing process!

Omg! Thats a fantastic idea! I'm 3 1/2 weeks post op...maybe I'll sneak in a cute little 1/2 star and moon to go w/the sun dial on my tail bone...

Hi Rena. You look amazing! Question: the stretch marks, some were there before surgery but did you get more and deepeer ones?
  • Reply
No ive had all my stretch marks before...I didn't get any more or deeper ones! The only regret is tht I would hve paid more for a full tuck if I would hve knwn tht it would hve got rid of most of my ststretch marks! But dnt get me wrong I'm still pleased with my mini tuck!
