I am 31 years old and a mother of three children under the age of 10. I am an active person and workout 4-5 times per week. No matter what I did after having my 3rd child, he just turned a year in March, I can't seem to loose the belly. I weigh less than I ever have and in much better shape than before I was married, but my stomache just won't coorperate no matter how many sit ups I do! I went to my doctor for a consultation in March hoping for a tummy tuck. After looking at me, my doctor said that I didn't have enough loose skin above my belly button for a full tummy tuck. He was afraid that he wouldn't be able to strech my skin down far enough to hide the existing hole of my belly button and it would appear as if I had two! Of course I didn't want that. He did tell me that "I was a perfect candidate for a mini tummy tuck." He said I was obviously athletic and in shape and that a mini is what he would recommend if I were his daughter. I am glad that I don't have to have a full when I think about recovery, but I am so nervous that the results won't be what I am hoping for. I asked about lypo on my love handles and he doesn't want to do that at the same time as the mini because it would be too much trama to my body. My husband will not let me go back for any more plastic surgery... he's one of those "you're beautiful just the way you are" type. Though I love that, I am nervous/scared about spending $4000.00 on something that isn't going to give me the results I am hoping for. I had my mind set on a full tt and to hear that I would be getting a mini was a surprise. I have done research on the mini since knowing that would be my procedure but there just isn't much out there. I'm glad I stumbled upon this site and am hoping for some feedback! I don't want to talk to anyone in Small Town, America where I live about this if you know what I mean!!!
Thanks for commenting. I have a pre op....
