I am a 28 year old Mom of 3 kiddos, all within two years of each other and my stomach showed it. I have worked really hard the last year to lose 40 pounds and change my way or eating. So, basically an entire lifestyle change. No matter how hard I tried I could not get rid of this belly. My husband was super supportive and understood that I needed this procedure to be happy and feel comfortable with my body again.
I am two days post op from my tummy tuck and lipo of the flanks. I'm surprised how little pain I am having. The tuck only hurts when I get up or down, and if I bump any lipo spots those are sore, but I feel fantastic! I would even venture to say this is easier than my c-section.

Oh, and I seem to be totally fine doing whatever now too. I've been shopping with my three kids, you name it! I'm looking forward to the days ahead since every day just seems better and better. :)
My Doctor: Janet Turkle, MD
I searched all over the internet for a plastic surgeon and Dr. Turkle's portfolio was far better than anyone else's I could find. She was wonderful and helpful from the very beginning and I even got to talk to a former tummy tuck patient of Dr. Turkle's. This patient had nothing but praise and I feel the same. Dr. Turkle changed my life and I would highly recommend her to my family and friends.
