Ok so I am 28 yrs old and I have 2 kids my oldest is 10yrs and my youngest is 8mths,I have been considering a tt for 2 yrs now and now that I've had another child my tummy is disgusting lol I have a conciltation on April 2,2013 at Jacobi hospital i want to do it there because thts the hospital me and my kids were born and its cheaper I asked the lady who made the appointment how much does a tt usually cost and she told me $4500 witch isn't a bad price to the $18,000 I was quoted before. I'm hoping I can get it done ASAP I will keep u posted on the outcome .

Same here but it's so much cheaper than the other places I have went to for a conciltation plus they know everything about me so I feel all safer but I will be updating as I go along and posting pics soon

Hi guys sorry for the delay,today was my conciltation and I am soo depressed I already told myself I was going to get a date today for my tt but unfortunately I didn't I am 5ft4inch and 209lbs I was told by the doctor that in order for them to do the tt I would have to loose 25lbs ,,I had to fight back the tears I just wanted to scream I came home and cried like a baby.i don't understand y...I love my lower body the way it is I don't wanna loose any lbs there my problem in my distroyed tummy..WTF!!!!!! I'm so pissed I'm going to Jamaica in August and I wanted to be done and over with the surgery b4 then but I guess that won't happen I guess I'll be on the beach with a granny bathing suit on ,,,here come the tears again..I went to another conciltation b4 this one and the doctor did not tell me I have to loose lbs so I don't understand why this doctor did.The reason I didn't go with tht doctor is because the price was $18,000 and tht was way too much ...I feel so lost right now all can do is cry... Does any one know of a place in NYC tht cost below $10,000 to get a tt ? plz help.

Don't be discouraged. I have read that for the best results a patient should be within the normal range BMI or very close to it. With the expense and challenges you will face after the TT you want to be sure you are dealing with a ps who knows what he/she is doing and looking out for your best interest. You will get this done...the timing may not be what you hoped for...but ultimately the results will be awesome....Don't take your disappointment out on food. Find a healthy eating plan and stick to it. I follow Jenny Craig. I love the program. Good luck. Wipe away the tears. Let this motivate you in your goal for a flat tummy.

By the way your body is not disgusting. You are a work in progress. No self-loathing allowed....That is counter productive to your goals. Hugs.

You can lose the weight eat portions and stay away from carbs and you will lose the weight. You can do it ... You will be very happy after your surgery good luck... ;) What else is included with your TT @ Jacobi Hospital and did you find out how many procedures are allowed at once.

Thank you and I won't find out anymore info until my next appointment when I went for the conciltation and the dostor told me I couldn't get it done until I lost the weight I was so hurt that I wanted to cry so I couldn't even ask any questions I just left cause I didn't want to burst out in tears I will be going back on the 21 of next month so I will ask then

Hi ladies it's been a while but I just wanted to up date you guys on my 25 lbs weight loss journey so far..well let's start with the fact that I've lost 11.6 lbs so far not as much as I wanted to loose at this point but at least it's something..I think at this point I won't be getting my tt done until fall :-( but I guess nothing happens before its time. I just tell myself that next summer is my summer..

Congrats on losing 11.6 lbs. That is excellent.

Hey ladies I know it's been a while. ..I've been going thru alot I've been going thru a real bad break up so you already know what tht means ...EMOTIONAL EATING!!!! The last time I updated I was 20 lbs and trying to lose 25-30 lbs well thanx to my ex I've gained almost 20 lbs smh I'm so disappointed in myself. .I can't believe I allowed this to happen. .I am now 225 lbs..This is so depressing. ..Still I am going forward with getting my tt...The doctor says he can still give me great results so I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best ..I added some pics of me now
