hello all, i told my family, my friends and even my pastor, some were supportive, because they knew how much i wanted this surgery, and for how long,

but others were like u can loose that weight just push back from the table.. omg if another person says that im going to have a fit..lol, if it were that easy dont you think i would have been did that, no u think i want to spend all this money for nothing ... ok now back to wat i was saying... lol...

I agree with Ken... You have to develope tough skin and not care what other may say about what you are doing is the wrong way to go about improving "YOUR" body. I told my husband, siblings, and very close friends and to my surprise my husband was all for it, but my siblings didn't want me to do it, but wants me to be happy and my verly close friends have been there with me through my weight ups and downs and totally understand and are cheering me on. I was prepared for the total opposite with my tough skin and really didn't care as I had my mind set. Sending Great Surgery and Recovery Dust Your Way!

Hi Brookles, I too am 27 and have had 3 children and wasn't pleased with my self image. I decided to have a TT and now am 3 weeks post-op and must say WHOO HOOO! I am very happy with my decision. I didn't tell anyone but family and even then some them would ask why...and to tell you the truth it kind of made me feel uncomfortable and second guess myself but now I have no regrets! Now that I love my body I feel it was all worth it. Do what you feel you want to do, this is for no one but yourself. You will be very please with your results, I wish I had gotten boobs;) I will be getting those in another 5 years since this recovery went well, I made a promise to myself to lose some more weight and keep my shape for five years then I can reward myself with a new set of honkers...lol. Im super excited about my journey, you should to! Don't be nervous, everything is going to come out fine and you would look AMAZING! Good Luck Girlie!

Hi ladies,
I just had my TT on Dec 22nd, 2010 and have posted pics on my profile. I have two young children at home a 1 and 2 year old and the past two weeks have been the hardest two weeks of my life.... alot of people could not understand why I was doing it. I wanted it for me and had my mind set.
Things have now started getting better and am now able to actually look after my own kids on my own.
But if anyone has any questions I will gladly do anything I can to help!

Hi! I just read your post and am in a very similar situation. My TT is coming up and I, too, haven't told anyone - not even my family. My husband (so far) is my only support. I am not overweight and I think most people would be very judgmental of my decision to do this because it is a "cosmetic" surgery. Have you told any family members? My biggest concern is also the recovery. So many questions...and not so many answers! My abdominal walls separated after having children and I'm left with a little belly that pooches out. I also have an umbilical hernia and have told family that I'm having surgery for that, but haven't mentioned the TT. The decision to do this has been extemely difficult and I am still questioning myself about it. I'm SO happy to of found this website and I look forward to the support while I go through this journey!

I too feel the same way! I am scheduled for a tummy tuck and breast lift on Jan 25th and I am so nervous. I have only told my partner and my mom. How do you say this to your friends? But now I am worried if I don't tell them and they find out later, it would upset them thinking I don't trust them. This procedure is definitely personal and only for ME so I have mixed feelings if I should tell anyone. But how can you drop off of the planet for a few months to recover without any body noticing?

Hi. I feel exactly the same, and havn't even told my family yet,not even my dad!. I was considering telling them that i was having some muscle repair(which is sort of true)!, because i feel guilty at deceiving them. My op is sceduled for 22nd Jan, 2011, and i can't wait!!. All the very best of luckxxx

Hey guys...I too went through very similar feelings. But in the end, as long as you are happy and you are doing this for YOU, then if other people judge you, there is nothing you can do about that. That is THEIR issue, not yours. If someone loves you, they will support you, they may not agree, but they should keep thier mouth shut on that.
I didnt want alot of my family knowing either, but I ended up telling them all. I know a few of them dont agree, I am sure they have a raised eyebrow, BUT they love me and didnt say one word negative about it.
Read my "10 things I wished I knew before my Mommy Makeover".
I talk about that in thier....your feelings are completely normal, and tell whomever you feel comfortable.

I also did not tell anyone except my kids (of course), sister and husband. People are too critical and I just did't want to hear it. I did this for myself and am very happy with the results. I had mine done October 15th and had not one complication and feel great! Weird feelings are still happening and that is expected but all in all it was worth it. I think the worst part honestly is the nasty drains. Thank God they were only in for 9 days. I just can't get over how many women have this done! That made me feel better too. Lots of support out there that's for sure.

I am so glad that many of you feel the same way I do about telling people. It is definatly a personal decision and I am not going to tell my dad either! He would fly down here in a heartbeat all worked up and worried anyway if I did. England, We're gonna have ours done almost the same time! I'm having mine on the 25th and will be posting pictures. I hope you post some as well and good luck.

Hello Kaasan. I hope you are getting as excited as i am. This is a very personal thing, and i think if it's really something you want, and it's within your reach, you've got to go for it. I'm a nurse in a hospice, so i know what i'm talking about. Good luck to you on the 25th. I will keep updating, and i will add more photo's. xx
