I am 10 weeks post tummy tuck operation and I couldn't be happier with both the physical and emotional results! I am your average Jane who always worked out recreationally to stay fit but my mid-section has always been my problem area. I was able to manage it pre-babies with dieting (weight watchers) and exercise classes (spinning, pilates, etc).
After 2 wonderful 9lb 3 oz babies via c-section I ended up with an umbilical hernia and severe case of diastasis recti. Basically - even though I worked out and dieted after my 2nd baby, every part of my body went back to normal except my stomach. My abdominal walls had separated and my bowels were pushing forward out of my belly button. I was horiffied!
Anyways - I went to three doctors, a general surgeon, a well known female surgeon and Dr. Teitelbaum. I chose Dr. Teitalbaum and knew right when I met him that he would be able to help me. He has the "best" credentials, is well-respected in the industry, board certified, he listens to you and he will also tell you what can and can't be done. He is the expert and and I have to tell you that my stomach is completely transformed from all angles and positions. I am in awe in how he was able to take the before stomach and transform it into this amazing after flat tummy.
I used to only buy blouses that were loose around the waist, I almost talked myself into only purchasing tankinis, and I always had trouble with pants b/c of the muffin top and the protruding belly button. All of that is gone and then some! I need to get a whole new wardrobe that highlights my new flat tummy. There are times where I look at a new dress on me and I can't believe it is me in the dress! My stomach hasn't looked this great since my first year in college before the freshman 15. It is life changing and well worth it! I am your average normal Jane that never thought in a million years that I would really do this - I am still your average normal Jane that doesn't look perma-pregnant! I can't believe how happy I am with the results. I was asked 3 times in the prior two weeks to my surgery if I was pregnant! I know that none will ever ask me that question again! Thank you Dr. Teitelbaum for helping me look and feel like a normal person again!
