Finally Did It!!! So Far So Good - Houston, TX

I finally did it!! I just had my surgery on Wed....

I finally did it!! I just had my surgery on Wed. (9/15/10) and so far so good :) I have had two C-sections so I kind of knew what to expect as far as pain but it was a bit more than expected. Now at day four I feel great!! The bruising and swelling is starting to set in, which it not too bad. I have kept up on all my meds and I know that makes a huge difference on how I feel. I had a full tummy tuck with lipo in hips, flanks, sides, and bra line.

I LOVE my Dr. and his staff was excellent. The surgery was at a Surgery center and not a hospital which I preferred. A nurse came to my home the next day, which was great and comforting to me. The last thing I wanted to do was get in Houston traffic. If your worried about the cost, its a small price to pay for your happiness. If your reading this site then you are probably not happy with your post baby belly.

I was scared the night before with the thought of going under so my kids slept in the bed with us and I kissed and hugged tighter than normal when they left for school. I got a little weepy but then I got excited because this was my turn. Everything my husband and I do is for our kids so I didn't feel bad doing this for me. They have been wonderful taking care of me they are 5 and 9. They have been with family and friends alot too. Now next summer I don't have to find a reason not to go to the pool and join in the fun with them. this will be life changing!


Hi Mayela, I saw some of the pictures of the tummy tucks that the doctor does, and they are amazing, he really knows how to create curves. I saw them on the day that I went for consultation. Please VSM post some pictures for us. Thanks

Hello, vsm!

I am from mcallen and considering Dr. Newall for a tummy tuck as well as lipo in upper and lower back. Do you have any pictures of your procedure. I'd like to know how flat he leaves the stomaches. I am skinny but my tummy has flabby skin after my two daughters.

Thank you,

Mayela

So glad you are doing so well. I am 2 days pre op and nervous, but excited, especially after reading all the positive posts here. Thank you for sharing and God Bless You on your continuing recovery. PS I am finally doing this at 61, after years of wanting to do it!!! Guess when the time it right, it can happen.
