New Bikini Pic!!!!!- Kansas City, MO

I have been reading reviews for at least four...

I have been reading reviews for at least four years now, since the birth of my first child. I am a fairly small girl, 5'2" and 120 pounds. I've had two almost-9 pound babies and they both resulted in c-sections. I gained a lot of weight fast with my first baby, and after that I was never really able to lose the skin and stretch marks. I exercise with a trainer a few times a week, but after doing all the research I could I realized that going through with this procedure is probably the only thing that will ever really give me the improvement I want.

The dreaded before photos.

Surgery date is booked!

I booked my surgery date yesterday for February 20th (sooooo close)!! I paid and got meds already, so now I just get to sit and be nervous until it actually happens. Any input at this point would be helpful, or if anyone wouldn't mind sharing their experience with Dr. Barnthouse I would greatly appreciate it! :)

Want to be in this bikini by summertime!!

More before photos. Only two days til the big day!!

I did it! I did it!

Yesterday was my day! When I came into the surgery center, I had a minor bladder infection, so they had to change my antibiotic. The pain is manageable with my pain meds, but walking hunched over isn't fun. Can't wait to get back normal and I can't wait to finally see my new tummy! I'll try to post pics when my binder comes off.

P.O. day 4

I am so happy with my results so far!! I've had my ups and downs so far with the medical tape itching my skin, and if course the pain and annoying drains. But despite all that, I am so so happy! My scar is pretty low and it looks as though it will
heal very thin and light. Its very low in the front, and just a little higher on the sides, but not too high. And it's very even. I dont
think shopping for bikinis to
cover the scar will be difficult :).
My belly button is just perfect. Its an innie. Very natural. Just what I asked for. Now I just
have to wait for the pain and
swelling to subside. I am so so so excited for summertime. I'm going to hug dr. Barnthouse today at my appt for giving me a pretty tummy. He's the best!

Kansas City Plastic Surgeon

I haven't had surgery yet, but so far Dr. Barnthouse has spent a considerable amount of time with me at each visit and seems to be very knowledgable and realistic about what I will achieve from surgery. The before after photos I've seen of his work are all impressive, so I'm just praying that I'll be ecstatic with my results as well! ...I am currently 3 weeks post op and am very pleased with the results of my surgery already! Dr. Barnthouse did everything he said he was going to do and there were no surprises after surgery. He gave me everything I asked for: a beautiful contour, flat tummy, and a cute, natural belly button. He has spent adequate time with me at all of my follow up visits. I would definitely recommend Dr. Barnthouse if you are looking for a tummy tuck doctor in the Kansas City area!!!
