I started looking into having a tummy tuck 10 years ago after my second child was born. At the time I was 25 and didnt have the money to spend on cosmetic surgery. I had my 3rd child in 2007



We moved to lebanon PA. last september and I immediatly started looking for a surgeon in the area. I found my Dr levin in lancaster PA. i have my pre-op was 11/22/11 My surgeon make me feel so safe he explain to me every details .I was having some issues of feeling selfish and vain for spending so much money on having the surgery performed..not to mention the anxiety over having surgery and being in pain. He reassured me that I was young (I am 33)and I had every right to get it done since I was done having kids. I scheduled surgery for dec 13, 2011.



and the only thing i can say right now is will be a long road but is worth it ..
