Hello I'm a 30 year old single mother of two. I have an 11 year old son and an 8 year old daughter. Both of my children very large babies (9lbs and 10lbs) which stretched my stomach to the max. Leaving me with the ugliest belly. Before i had my two children had a body to die for.... flat belly, tiny waist, nice hips and thick thighs. I had my first child at 19 so I really never got a chance to enjoy my curves and flat stomach :(
I have been considering having my belly done since i gave birth to my daughter back in 2004. What made me realize how awful my stomach looked was when my 2 year old nephew took off screaming when he saw it. He was so afraid, he was shaking. From that point on my sister used my stomach as threat everytime he is misbehaving.
I scheduled my procedure date for August 13, 2012 with Dr. Saunders in Delaware. I'm beyond excited!!!! I can't wait wear a bikini. I cannot wait to not have to worry about my shirt flying up or my belly drooping out of my shirt. My Birthday is August 1st so this is my gift to myself. A NEW ME!!

Went for my pre op appointment on Tuesday!!! I can't believe this is really about to happen! I've been waiting 10 years for this day to come and now it's finally on its way. My surgery and hospital fees are paid in full so now I'm just waiting for the big day to come.... At my pre op visit my Dr let me ask all of the questions that I may have had and took pictures of the gush aka my belly lol..He also gave me the prescription for my pain medicine and antibiotics. The only thing he didn't go over was how to prepare for the surgery. He didn't tell me to stop vitamins or not to eat before surgery. I have to call the office tomorrow.
Wow! One week until my surgery!!! I'm so excited!...

Hey... Today I am 1 day post op and feeling...
Hey... Today I am 1 day post op and feeling pretty good. My surgery was done yesterday at 2:00. Last night was kind of rough but once the nurses took me off the IV meds I and gave me Percocets, I was fine. I stayed in the hospital overnight which was a big help. The nurses were wonderful!! I woke up this morning great, I even washed myself up and dressed myself. I'm exhausted, about to take another nap. Sorry if this review sounds crazy it's because of these meds... Ttly
PO day 11... Hello Friends!! All i can say is...
PO day 11... Hello Friends!! All i can say is swell hell. My belly is uncomfortably swollen most of the time along with my hips and thighs. I do think that most of my swelling comes from moving around too much. i started driving at 7 days PO only because i didnt have anyone one to take me to my 1 week post op appointment. At that appointment i got one drained pulled thank God!!! i hate these damn drains with a passion. My next appointment with my PS is monday 8/27. I pray he pull this last drain. I can't wait to be normal again, i hate sitting on my a**! My Tush is going to be as flat as a pancake once i heal SMH.
DRAINLESS!!!!! I went for my 2 week post op...
DRAINLESS!!!!! I went for my 2 week post op appointment yesterday and my ps removed the last horrible drain. As soon as he removed it I instantly felt better. I even felt like I was walking straighter. I feel so good! I'm still swollen but I almost normal again! Thank God!
Hello all! so far so good... i'm almost 3 weeks...
Hello all! so far so good... i'm almost 3 weeks post op and my only complaint is the swelling and the lump of what i think is fat on my right side. i'm not too worried because either its swelling or left behind, both of which my PS will have a solution for. I love my fat belly when swelling isnt present! i cant wait until this swell hell is a thing of the past. Other than the swelling Life Is Great! I'm truly blessed :). I updated my profile with new photos! check them out.

Hello! I haven't added a new post in awhile so here it goes... For starters I am the happiest woman in the world with my new tummy!! Dr. Saunders is a savior! My belly is so freakin flat! It's beautiful... My confidence has sky rocketed since I've gotten my tummy tuck. Sometimes I look in the mirror and can't believe that it's my reflection I am staring at. I never looked this good in my life! My scar is still a little dark but is healing well. I would rather have this scar over the wrinkles lol. I can't wait to the summer to wear a bikini and halter tops :)
