My name is Sarah. I'm a mother of almost three. My son is 12 my daughter is 4 and I'm currently pregnant. I have a scheduled c-section on March 28th, 2014. I'm finally making the choice to have a tummy tuck after I give birth to my son next year. I have tossed the idea around for 10 years and I'm happy it have waited because now I have two children since then. Now that I'm finally done having children. I am super excited about the next chapter in my life. I haven't had a flat tummy since I was 17 years old. I will be 30 years old at the beginning of sept 2014 and I told myself before I turn 30 I will have my body back!!
I have done consultations in my area before I got pregnant with my third child and wasn't happy with the PS DOCTORS I met so I'm continuing the journey to find a great PS doctor. I had a virtual consultation with Dr. Clark in folsom, ca and I already feel comfortable with her. Her work is amazing!! I have a face to face consult with her in May 2014 and I can't wait to meet her in person.
She told me like other Ps doctors that I have to wait 3months a after csection to have a tummy tuck. So I'm waiting the bare minimum lol. I have had a boob job oct 2006, in a different state where I was living before. I got it done for the man I was marrying. I was young and stupid, I will never do anything to please a man. I'm left with horrible boobs and scars. So picking another ps doctor, I'm more cautious than ever!
I know exactly what to expect with the tummy tuck and I have realistic expectations of what my tummy will look like. I have csection scar already so I know I will have a scar at the same location but just longer. I will have stretch marks after my tummy tuck because I have them above my belly button, but they are light. I might even have a vertical scar but I'm okay with it. I know my tummy will look way better after than it does now.
I may have my ankles and calves smartlipo, (click here to read my Ankle Liposuction review) because I wasn't blessed with smaller bottom half but that still is up in the air. Haven't decided on that just yet!
Having realistic expectations helps after the mental part after your surgery. It's important to ask all questions!!
I will keep updating and hope that you all have a healthy safe recovery with your surgeries!!
