Seriously Thinking About Having a TT - Miami Beach, FL

Wow, RealSelf is AWESOME. I thank you ladies for giving me the courage and the motivation to go through with the TT. I'm a new comer to the community and I have been up and down about having a TT for months now. Reading all the different stories and experiences have been so helpful for me. As of right now I am going to go ahead and join The Flat Tummy Club. I have already completed my consultation I think I will commit to a date for the procedure next month. (August) I'm 49 with two (pretty much grown) children, son 20 and daughter 17. My son is a senior in College and my daughter is a senior in a private High School. I feel I have been sacrificing my life since they have been on this earth. So much sacrifice I lost myself. I had gained weight, stop doing the things that I like to do and before I knew it 20 years had passed. Well now I have set out to find myself once again and not to miss a beat of my life from this point on. I feel getting a TT is just one of the things I plan to do for me that will boost up my self esteem. So hopefully you all will be able to help me through this journey.

Hello TT family, this night will begin my journey...

Hello TT family, this night will begin my journey to the FLAT SIDE and I hope that all of you hold my hand throughout this journey. Today I decided that I will go ahead and have the full tummy tuck. I am truely starting this journey from the very beginning. I would like for the TT to take place either March or April of 2013. Hopefully this will be enough time for me to heal some before my children graduate. Both of them graduate in May of 2013. The TT is my 50th Birthday gift to myself which is in April. My first question to my new family is, How many Doctors should I consult with before making my final decision on which doctor to choose? I have already had one consultation and I'm scheduled for two more. (Aug 16 and Oct 1) I don't want to become overwhelmed with too many doctors to choose from. Ana13 has already given me quit a bit of information. Thank you so much Ana. I would like to also thank all of you for your journeys, stories and motivations that I have been reading for the last two months. You all have inspired and motivated me to go over to the FLAT SIDE. : )

Hello TT family, I have begun my TT journey. I would like to share as much of it with you all and hopefully will receive some positive feed back as well as dos and don'ts. Yesterday I had my third consultation. This PS owns pretty much his own mini hospital. Very Nice. I enjoyed our consult and hopefully his honesty, but I have two concerns and hopefully someone can help me. First of all out of the three PS he's the only one that said he would just lipo my flanks only , along with my TT. For some reason I thought to contour your body lipo is needed on the flanks, upper & lower abs and lower back. The other two PS told me that they would lipo all of those places. The second concern is the pain pump. I'm not familar with that. Is the pain pump a good thing or what? Help! The second PS offered to use glue on my incission. Which is better ladies the stiches or the glue? I am aware what ever response I get from everyone the decision is still up to me. But I would like to hear feed backs and experiences which will help me figure out what is best for me. Working hard but carefully to make it the FLAT SIDE. : )
