Starting my Tummy Tuck Journey with Lipo on the Flanks - Saint Peters, MO

Hello my name is Venus and I'm from...

Hello my name is Venus and I'm from Clarksville, TN but I'm currently stationed at Scott AFB, IL. I been in the Air fore going on 9 years. I've been fluctuating with my weight ever since I had my son July 29, 2009. My main problem being my stomach and wanting to get it back the way it was before the little one. Trust me I tried, momma put in a lot of work, but ultimately the only option is a Tummy Tuck. Did need lypo on my flanks 8 months ago but now I do since I gained 15 pounds since I had my consultation in November 2011. I guess i been lazy.


I just had a tt with muscle repair and a breast lift without implants by Dr. Paul Mills. Reniassance PS has been great so far. I am almost 2 weeks post op. Good luck!

Surgery went great and I am now 7 weeks post op. I will post all my pic up soon. I am thrilled with my results. My stomach looks 100% better then before. I look great in my clothes now. Just with the Tummy Tuck and lypo flanks it looks like I lost 15 pounds without losing my butt and my boobs . Before surgery when I was deployed I lost 20 pounds really trying to lose my stomach and I did but my stomach was not tight and I had a little pooch. So with the loss of the pounds I lost some of my boobs and my butt. I lost my curves which I was not happy about. (My sister said I looked like I had a little boys body.....not happy at all) So I gained my weight back and opted for the surgery,..... a great decision I might add.


Congrats to you! I am 7 weeks post op and I am loving it. It's a great investment if you ask me. Everything went great. Hope your recovery is going great as well.
Thanks! I am pleased...just SICK of the swelling:) Recovery has been uneventful, thankfully. I'm so ready to exercise, but I'm waiting the full 6-8 weeks:)
Well, you look awesome! I have been jogging now and lifting weights....It's no walk in the park but I listen to my body. Every week I'm gaining more of my energy back. It hasn't been a walk in the park when it comes to exercising and I can't still do my hard core exercising but everyweek it gets a little bit easier. So the progress keeps me going and motivated so I don't feel deppressed any more.
