I am a 35 year old mother of three boys (4 1/2 year old twins and 18 mo old). I found this website to be extremely helpful so I hope that in posting someone can learn from my experiences. On August 22, 2012, I am getting a tummy tuck, breast lift and having my 300 cc saline implants replaced with silicone. I am hoping to be back to work the day after labor day (I am an attorney so I sit at a desk most of the time). After I had my twins I noticed that even though I got back into shape, I had loose skin above and below my belly button. After I had my 3rd son, it only got worse. The loose skin is not so noticeable from a distance but If I bend over it hangs and is gross. Also, there is skin that hangs over my c- section scar. I breast fed the twins for 15 months and the last for 8 so I have a double bubble effect with my implants. I always assumed that if my boobs were fake, I would not have any problems. Silly huh? Well it is getting so exciting and real now because I go for my bloodworm tomorrow. The only thing I am afraid of is the scar. Since I am in shape and have minmal skin I am nervous that my scar will be too high. Has anyone else out there heard that this may happen? After all I am not doing a full tummy tuck to have to wear high waisted granny bikini bottoms! I tried stepping it up at the gym and completed the 60 day insanity DVDs but the loose skin problem was not solved of course. I guess I was trying to get into mini tummy tuck category. I did not think the c sections were so bad but would love to hear other's opinions with regard to coating a tummy tuck with a c section.
Well the pre-op was today. I am so excited. I...

Dr. Herbstman was recommended by an acquaintance at the gym and I chose him after 3 consultations. I was influenced by peer review, education, experience and professionalism. He took plenty of time with me during the consult and his staff is wonderful.
