Hi everyone, I am 31 and a mother of 3 (12,6,3)(all C-sections)and married. When I met my husband 10 years ago, I was 115. After the last two I am currently weighing 180 at 4'11. I dont look like 180 most people assume 150-160. However, I am so unhappy with my stomach. I have the muffin top with pants on, and a stomach that sticks out like im pregnant with dresses. I think I look smaller in black dresses if I encourage myself to wear it due to the insecurity.
I am beyound insecure regarding my stomach. I usually wear bigger tops or sweaters to make my stomach look smaller. I am constantly putting my purse, or what ever is in my hand in front of my stomach when I am talking to people. When I sit down I am covering my stomach by folding my arms.
I have decided within the last month, that I want a tummy tuck. I spoke with my doc and she is going to start the process of clearing me medically within the next week. I am hoping to consult with different PS's and have a scheduled surgery as soon as Feb. ** Do you guys think that is a realistic time frame?** My husband think I am nuts and wonders if I can live with the scar....I said to him " ARE YOU ASKING IF I CAN LIVE WITH A SCARE OR CONTINUE TO LIVE WITH THREE ROLLS OF STOMACH?) SCAR IT IS!!! I told him. Overall he supports me and understands that this is for me and not for him or anyone else. When I get dressed I am always saying how an outfit could look so much better on me if I didnt have the stomach.
I am lookig for a PS in the Chicago area (I have found plenty on-line) but I am wondering if anyone had surgery with an Chicago PS and can give some realistic feedback besides the pics I view on all these PS's websites... or can tell me what are some of the main points I want to consider when consulting.
My primary doctor recommended 3 PS...and I decided...

I had already decieded on my own that I wanted to loose 10 pounds before the procedure, but I had no idea that I would be the one getting turned down. Plus, I dont want to ever be at Risk, I want to be the best canidate for surgery. But anyway, I can appreciate a doctor thats not all about the money, and can sit and really talk to a potential patient about health and dieting. So at the end, I thought he was great, and decided to cancel any other appointments, because that would look like I was searching for a YES! AND NOT A NO!. I can honestly say he had gotten me spooked about the whole thing for a minute. However, I am going to attempt to loose 20 pounds and not 10, so that would bring me to 4'11 -160P and then seek a second opinion. So far so good, I am down 4 pounds within 9 days. I have changed by eating habits, cut the fried foods and soda from my diet, overdose on water LOL!! and joined the gym. I hope to be TT ready by late March/April. Wish me luck.
