I am 46 and have had 2 C sections . I finally lost the baby fat, after 24 years. But still have the belly , and wanted to get something done.

I went to a local PS and he is great. Told me what we needed to do to get a flat tummy and a girlish figure with lipo. He took before pictures and we set a date. Dec. 19 at 8:30 .

I have put up my before pictures of my tummy. I have never had a flat tummy and told my husband its time. I am glad I found this website and have learned alot from all of you.

Will keep you up to date on this great Journey!

Now I'm even more swollen but was told the once the swelling goes down the stomach will appear flatter again. It looks big but not hanging like it did before the surgery. She said it still has fluid that needs to drain. Well this is only Day 1... We shall see. I will keep you posted. Chandlerranch...Your surgery is coming up. Can't wait to hear how you make out.

I am at my 3 1/2 weeks, and feeling better. I go to work on Tuesday and will be on my feet for most of the 5 hours that I work. I have bought a garment to wear to work in. Hope it works, I was wondering what you mini tummy tuckers, wear now that you are going to work or at this point. I feel like I have had this done for a long time , but it is only going on a month. I don't go to my PS until next week. I have been walking on treadmill for 20 to 30 minutes a day. Days 2 so far! Hope you all are doing great!

It is almost coming up to 2 months . It seems like it has been longer. My PS told me to slowly take off the binder. I still wear it to work in. I stand on my feet all day and pick up heavy things. It helps. I have my good days and bad days of swelling. I was very swollen on my last check up and my PS , said that will happen. I am back to the gym doing what I can and feeling good with that. I have put up new pictures. I didn't know had so many scretch marks, couldn't see them before. HaHa. Oh , well , those are my couger stripes!!


Thank you, you will do great with your surgery. I am getting better results every week. Hope my site helps.

May 2, I am having a set back, I have for the past 2 weeks developed a hard ball size lump at the scar, saw PS and he didn't think anything of it, thought it was odd!!! So upset, about this .. I looked good last month and then now I have this wierd lump and my PS doesn't seem worried. I was looking forward to swim suit now, I am not. If it doesn't go away , in a few weeks , I am back to PS!!


Can you please tell me how you are doing now..are you happy or are you just giving up ?

Hi, I live in Bloomington, In and was wondering where you went to have your procedure done? I anticipate having my procedure done in the Fall '12 and was wondering where you went, because you look great!
