For years I've wanted a Tummy Tuck. In 2002, I made the mistake of having liposuction to the tummy and flank area because I wasn't educated enough and, the PS wasn't skilled enough to tell me that I was a candidate for tummy tuck instead. 10 years foward and I'll be having my TT surgery August 7th, 2012. I'm a proud mother of 3 daughters - giving birth to two and one being my daughter through marriage so I only had two births but the last took a serious toll on my body. I've hated my mid-section for far too long and I MUST say "bye" to the UGLY buldge. I've raised my children, now 20, 20 and 15 years old, dedicated16 years of marriage to my husband, worked full-time, attending school part-time, currently running a home-based travel business SO now it's time to DO-ME!. Pictures will be posted.
On June 18th I had a breast reduction (pictures and review posted on this site) and I'm very pleased.
When I decided to share my tummy tuck with...

Starting tomorrow I have to shower with Hibiclens soap. I've already started taking the Arnica and Bromelain three times a day. Tomorrow I'll start drinking Mix 1 all-natural protein shake for a better healing process. Thanks for reading my story!

I'm feeling anxious mixed with many other emotions I can't express. I continue to look at my tummy all day because I can't believe after all these years, finally my extra "pillow" will be cut off. The Surgery Center called me today telling me what time they need me at the facility and what time my surgery will be. I'll have to be there at 7AM,,,,I wonder if I'll get any sleep tonight,,,hmmmm.
Happy Healing ladies

Today is August 8th and I"m doing just fine. I was so afraid that I would be in pain but I'm NOT. The only time I feel pain is when I'm getting out of bed, or off my couch, other than that the only time I was in tears was when I woke from the surgery. It feels as if I did 1000 reps on my Ab-Slider or something. My breast reduction brought me more pain than the tummy tuck which was totally unexpected.
Today I see my PS and will get the chance to see my tummy for the first time. I"m SO nervous thinking I will hate, hate the scar but I'll try to think positive. If the tummy don't look too bad I'll post pics.
Saw my tummy today and although it's very, very...
