I am 50 years old. - Tummy Tuck - Houston, TX

My weight was stable and I was happy other than looking pregnant all the time. I had two babies late in life...both nearly 10 pounds. The C-section really did me in. I'm posting an after photo...four and a half weeks after my tummy tuck...side view. I am 50 years old. Okay, adding a new one of me at 8 weeks (front view).

correct photos

Oops, would like to delete the iPad case photo, LOL.

Trying again for the side view at four weeks...

Also a bit of lipo

I should add that my tummy tuck was under ten grand, but I did have a bit of lipo that added the rest of the fee. I only lost about three pounds in surgery. Totally worth it for me.

Almost 10 weeks

Monday will be 10 weeks since my TT procedure.

After a day of no CG

It can get rounder than this...

Three month anniversary

Today is my three month anniversary of my TT. Took two photos right out of the shower, after applying the scar treatment (which has four steps, from my PS). The brand is Skin Medica, pricey stuff, not sure if it really helps, but why not try, I figure.

I'm sorry

Just want to say that I normally visit Real Self by clicking on email links that come to me from other people's profiles, when they post. I rarely look at my own, so now I feel bad that I'm all over RS, but not answering the sweet people who visit my site! I will try to remember to check my own page more often, surprised that comments here do not generate emails to me...now I know! Sorry! :)

For Powelli (Belly button photos)

A few close ups. You can see the top wants to go inside-out. The whole thing goes flat in about an hour if I leave it unpacked.

Flat belly button

Here are pix taken after several hours with no packing. I had to get in the light just now, I know these are odd but it's flat & I wanted to show it. I'm about 15 weeks post op.

The other photo

Not sure why they did not both load. This really slows how flat it is:
