I have had two c-sections my oldest is ten an I have a four year old. I also have a lap band and have lost almost 90 pounds I stared out at 348. I have been stalking this realself for a while now and I finally have made up my mind to have a tummy tuck with lipo and muscle repair .I would really love a thigh lift and a breast lift but all that will come over time. I have already had my constellation with a doctor here in Jacksonville fl dr.wallace. he said my weight was fine to have a tt but I wan a good out come my goal weight is 220-230 because of my height I still want something type of curve to my frame .. any advice is welcomed I need help lol is a lot of people are going to south america for surgery for the price it has crossed my mine does any one have an opinion about traveling for surgery???

Finally, another chic who's tall. We're actually the same height. I currently weigh 197, the heaviest Ive ever been. My average is like 181-185. With me getting older, my metabolism is def. slowed down. In my profile pic, I'm around 170. I loved that weight. Anyway, if you lose weight you'll def. still have curves. Im from Jax by the way.

OMG! Someone local with my same dilemma. Lol. I'm in Jacksonville also and I am ready to have the surgery asap. All this Dr. hunting is tiring I must say.

Yes this has been a dilemma for me but to be honest I have only been looking around for the past two months pretty much at a dead end right now ...I have gave two consultations but I am looking into dr Wallace so far

Hi cqrivera, I'm trying to find the right Dr too here in Jax. I am scheduling a consultation with Dr. Nicholas Csikai hopefully next week. Have you tried him yet? I heard good things about him.

Ladyduval I have been debating that latley my husband is Hispanic so I know he could translate for me lol .but where would u do your follow up care at over here?
  • Reply
I'm going to speak to my PCP and Dr. Yily about that. That is really my only concern at this point. If she has a reasonable answer from her or my PCP... I'm outta here. Lol

@LadyDuval -- Yes, it is nice to find some local peeps with something in common other than kids, lol. Well, I am definitely looking for a buddy however I don't know about having surgery in March but May on the other hand sounds better for me, but let me know.

How much does a TT cost over there?
  • Reply
Itdepends on if you're only getting a tummy tuck or if you're getting something else done but is pretty reasonable and they have the best work compared to the United States doctors thier work is superb. I did my research and I looked at other doctors in the area but I noticed that there were a lot of unsatisfied customers
