30 Years, 3 Kids, 190lbs Looked Like I Was Still Pregnant at 8 Month - Houston, TX

I had been wanting a tummy tuck for years now, 4...

I had been wanting a tummy tuck for years now, 4 to be exact. I even went to a consult with a dr in Mexico but after hearing that I need at least a month to recover there because it required a long time to be able to walk I decided against it. I'm glad I did because in October I had the baby girl I had always dreamed of but after my stomach looked like she was still inside. I decided to look into the procedure this summer when someone asked if I was pregnant yet again so soon after she saw me holding my baby. I went in on June 23 for the consult and by God's favor I was able to be squeezed in that Friday. I have just had a tummy tuck and can honestly say my doctor, dr. German Newall in Houston has the hands of an angel! I was able to walk since day two, no pain has been at all just soreness on thighs and back from time to time. I'm on my third week of recovery and can honestly say that if u would of known it was this pain free I would have done breast augmentation. I highly recommend him! During the consult he was very professional and listened to my needs and didn't suggest I get another procedure as well like a Dr. Wilberto Cortes in Houston suggested I get breast implant because after surgery my girls were going to sag (which was NOT THE CASE). He told me that would be all I needed and I'm liking the results so far And can't wait for the swelling to go away.

I'm sure your recovery will just as great. I'll be praying for you as I asked everyone I knew to do for me.

I forgot to mention...

I forgot to mention I had the tummy tuck and lipo on my back, waist, flanks and inner thighs. He uses the latest and greatest method for main management from the moment he closes you up so that's what's really help me.

How do you afford the surgery? I have nearly constant yeast infections and my belly looks peculiar. Droopy on one side.

When you really want something you work hard to afford it. I saved up for about a year. My husband made a deal with a romantic that during special occasions he would give money instead of gifts, not because he did not want to gift me something special but he saw how much I wanted it and how depressed I felt with how I look. Saved up 7K and the rest on my credit. I can make installments on a credit card but to look and feel good I needed that now lol The little sacrifice is well worth it.
Hi congrats happy for you. My tummy is similar to yours cant wait to see ur post op pics. Happy recovery.

I'm still swollen but I'm loving the results. Getting my hour glass shape and feeling motivated to workout hard (once okayed) to look even better.
