Tummy Tuck - South Africa, ZA

Hi all tt ladies.I havnt had tt yet and I really...

Hi all tt ladies.I havnt had tt yet and I really don't know if I ever will.I've went for consultations with a very good SA surgeon that cost me a lot as its expected and just to ease my mind knowing I can't afford it.I'm on this site for a long time now,following the before and after stories.the excitement,the doubts,the successes.I've been obsessed and negative.I've been positive and finally decide to give up the thought of ever having one myself.I've personally chatted with a few of you just to feel closer to my dream.I have so many things going on in my life,so many more important things to focus on financially,that I have to let go of this.I'm turning 40 in a few weeks.I am hypothyroid and except that I have this huge tummy that forbid me to feel better in any clothes I'm swollen and feel awfull.I don't feel like going out in the public I don't even wana be seen by friends or family.but I have to work and I'm forced to force myself in clothes and sometimes uniform and just ignoring people staring at my tummy and ignoring anyone asking how far I'm pregnant even though I've never in my life were able to have my own child.I want to thank you all for sharing your stories,making me live it at times and feeling as if I was part of it,thank you for those who unknowingly replied to my messages when I just needed to be included in a dream come true.those who still have to go,I'm so glad for you and I know it will be worth everything.those I've lost through healing and reaching their goal I hope you enjoy every moment of it.the doctors really are equiped by God and that's why they are so great.the passed 2 months I haven't even gone on the site because I'm giving up on this dream.I look at myself and I'm making peace because it will not be possible for me.my prayers are with you all,those awaiting,those still thinking about it and those on the recovery road.thanks for this so beautifull site.thanks for bringing different woman so close all over the world.thank God for the doctors that is so fully equiped with knowledge and thank You for using them to make dreams come true.a part of me will always be with each of you that are able to do something for themselves to feel positive about themselves.God Bless.

Had lots operations when I struggled to fall pregnant.had hernia repair few years ago and its torn again as you can see in my photos.it took a lot to send photos but I think I owe it to you all.

I wish I could.I have to sacrifice for my little angel I promised to give a life to.we lost our house.things aren't going well and I'd rather let go of my dream to make things better for her.I've been blessed with her after I couldn't have my own.but I'll still stay tuned into this site and I'm still thankfull that its possible for you.

You are 100% right. Priorities. Family first. I pray that one day you are rewarded with a little something for you. Don't loose sight of your dream but keep your eyes on the prize in front of you. You rock.

Im on day 7 of my tt recovery and also live in South Africa. Iam 45 and have waited 12 years to-ing and fro-ing (and saving) for this op. At the end of the day, your hate for the bulge/apron/fanny pack must exceed the fear and cost of the surgery. Only then you will be ready. All the best!

Didn't read your full story, just saying.. When you do the tt you have to want it. It is not something that you would need to ask someone about. You will decide for yourself that this is what you want for YOU. That being said, if you need to ask, then you don't need it or want it because it is a commitment not for a week or month but a long duration. I hope you decide what you want but we as a community can not decide what is good for you.. Good luck on your journey.. If tt is what you decide I can give the little help I can and others may join in and help.
