Full Tummy Tuck, Lipo, and Fat Transfer to Butt - Lansing, MI

I am 34 and have 4 children, all were c- sections,...

I am 34 and have 4 children, all were c- sections, my first child i had at a young age and pregnancy and c- sections have done a number on my body. I have wanted a tummy tuck for many years but felt selfish. I had my tubes tied with my last pregnancy and decided its time. I love the beach and summertime but I feel so horrible with the way my tummy looks that i will avoid the beach and anything to do with showing skin, my fiance has never seen me naked, i guess i just never got used to or accepted this post babies body:)

i have worked out ALOT!! and have lost weight but never the hanging skin on my tummy my flanks are also very full and dr is going to do los of lipo on them and possibly extend the full tummy tuck scar as to not have loose skin in flank area after the lipo,he is also lipo of upper and lower abdomen then fat transfer to butt (brazillian butt lift) for me this is going to be life changing and a sense of freedom to not have to hide behind sweatshirts, I will admit I am sooo terrified of general anethesia and have a fear of not waking up and my children being alone, is that crazy of me or what? my pre op apt. is april 13th and surgery scheduled april 26th.

Good luck tomorrow. I go in Wednesday. I also had the fear of not waking up and of the anesthesia. Luckily I know I can handle anesthesia, so as long as we follow PS's instructions, we'll be ok. Just make sure to walk around as much as you can to keep circulation in your extremities and no eating/drinking past midnight.

I have never had anesthesia before so im freaked! lol, I have to be there at 7:00am and surgery at 8:00am, I keep trying to imagine what I will look like, I went to the mall a few days ago and looked at clothes and got so excited thinking about acually buying stuff i liked as opposed to buying stuff to cover my belly! what a great feeling!!!

Hi Lansing and welcome to RealSelf! 

How exciting that you are able to do this for yourself!  By mid to late summer you are going to be rocking a bikini and love your new body!

Your day will be here before you know it so let the count down begin.  The only way to get rid of this skin is to have it removed.  No matter how hard you work out it just does not help. 

I look forward to reading your updates and seeing those pictures:)

Keep us up to date and be proud in doing this for yourself.
