Here's a little background on me I'm 29 years old and a single mother of my beautiful son, who just turned 7. I'm 5'4 and weight 132 lbs. After having my son my weight fluctuated a bit, from 125 pre-pregnancy to 140 lbs post-pregnancy. I believe that's what left me with the sagging skin in my tummy. I've been staying fit, exercising and eating healthy but no improvement on my abs. It's gotten a toll on my self esteem, I just don't feel as good as I might look. With clothes I look perfect but I'm tired of having to suck my tummy or always having to fold my arms when I sit or not being able to wear certain clothing much less a bikini in the summer time. Oh and not to mention...dating! That's a totally separate topic but all in all I'm ready to do this now!
I'm glad I found this forum cause it has given courage after reading your experiences. It's so comforting to find people who are feeling or going through the same things I am.
My surgery date is this Friday May 27th, I still can't believe I'm doing this! I'm very excited and also a little nervous so I'm trying not to think about it too much until the day of. I'll try to post some 'before' pics before surgery day.
Okay one more day to go and I honestly feel just...

So today I plan to just go home and relax and spend some quality time with my son. I'm so thankful that I have my family with me to help me with my son and my recovery.
Oh and I will post some pics to share with you today.
Thanks so much for the welcoming messages and support ladies, it means a lot! :)
Tomorrow is my 14th day PO and I'm feeling great. ...

I came back to work on Monday cause I only asked for a week off work. During that week I was feeling better each day after my first visit to my PS. No swelling, no pain just perfect. So on day 6, I over did it, I was up all day cleaning, doing laundry took a long shower and when I came out of the shower my belly was a balloon. I think it was the wrong day to take my first pictures but oh well I felt so good and clean that I just did lol
It's my first week back at work and was super busy, I'm an accountant and thank God I was sitting most of the time. I did noticed yesterday that I was swollen more than the day before and it was because I was not doing much walking. So today I'm walking to the bathroom every hour or so. What is really bothering me right now is the compression garment. I have it as tight as I can handle and I have to move it up or down whenever I stand up, it's annoying. I've already ordered another garment with undies so I can't wait for it to arrive!
I will post new pics tomorrow on my 14 day mark :)

Dr. Tavallali took the time to answer all my questions, explained the procedure in detail. The other doctors I've seen rushed through my questions and didn't seem to take my concerns seriously. There was this one doctor that didn't want to show me any pictures at all. Overall, he just made me feel very comfortable. His staff was very friendly and professional.
