Pros: aesthetics, tight abs, professional and attentive staff.
Cons: drains and abdominal muscles soreness (improving).
Personal goals: Eliminate the redundante skin and tighten the abdominal wall muscles as a result of losing 100 lbs post gastric bypass 7 years ago. Despite ongoing diet and exercise and a minituck a year ago; there were areas I was not happy with. I had a mini tuck about a year ago and felt very discontent about the results, the physician who did the procedure did not own up to correcting imperfections resulting from his lack of training and experience.
The outcome: Im very pleased with the results so far (three weeks post -op). Dr. Tholen and his team of professionals are great. I wish I had taken a bit more time researching the procedures and gone with a board certified specialist before undergoing the previous mini tuck. Although I went throught the discomfort and cost twice, it was worth the experience and results thus far.
