I am a 40 year old married nurse with no children :) I'm so excited to have a tummy tuck after a 100lb weight loss after having a gastric bypass 7/10/11! I have so much extra skin on my belly that even though everyone say how great I look I can't tell as I have soo much skin along with a muffin top! All set with pre-op stuff just waiting for my surgery day to arrive 6 days to go!!

Thank you I can't wait!

Post op!!

I had my tummy tuck on 7/10/14 which was 3 years to the day of my gastric bypass! My surgeon took 7lbs of skin from my abdomen and it looks amazing even with all the swelling!!! Currently I have 3 drains in 1 on each hip and the other dead center they are what's causing me the most pain the incision has a burning quality but not intense . Very difficult to get up from bed/chair and back down major muscle spasms but my dr was very proactive with meds so I have a few things to use :) soo happy that I finally don't have that horrible top roll !
