I am a 31yr old mother of two that has been waiting 10 tears to have this procedure done. My kids and my husband are supportive and excited about my surgery. I am a teeny tiny bit nervous but i can not explain how excited i am for the opportunity to feel good about myself. I saw Dr. Ahmadi on a local TV show and have been researching him for almost 4 years. I scheduled a consult with him and he and his staff were great and I am comfortable with my decision to have the Lipotuck procedure done! I am so excited about my upcoming surgery!! I have been wanting this done for 10 years and have researched many Drs, but I feel like I chose the best in the industry! I will post before pics soon.

My recovery has been ok so far! I will be glad when I can quit the pain pills, I hate the sleepy, groggy feeling I have. I am at day 4 and feel like by day 10 I will be at 95%!! I already feel 100X better about my appearance and can not wait till I can put on some real clothes and flaunt my new flat tummy!! I will post more pics soon. The ones I am posting are not very good as my tummy is covered in one cause it was supposed to be a pic of upper thighs but photographer was not understanding what I wanted!! The other shows it ALL!! But I will post some more tasteful pics soon.
So it has been one full week since I was a Rolly...

One question- I know every PS is different, my PS does not allow us to wear pants/jeans or panties for 6 weeks. I was wondering who else is on the same boat as me? Hell I only own two dresses!!! Just Wondering.
I am recovering well! And will post some pics...

I am really missing sex!! OMG after having a baby (which is the only time I've been cut off) u r fat and feel icky so really no big deal, right??
Well after having a TT and Lipo, holy mother of Christmas, I am Hhhooooottttt! I have never felt sexy in my life, and not only do I want to show off my new sexiness I am ecstatic for some new positions! Not that my sex life was Uneventful pre TT, but there are just certain positions I did not want to be in because of my oversized belly! But with all that being divulged, I am still 4 weeks and one day before Dr releases me for fun time in the bed room! For any fellow TT did u cheat?
And last check out my new pics, this is a swim suit I had but wore a skirt or shorts and it is a full tankini, I just rolled it up! But I can assure u I will be wearing me a cute little bikini this year!!! The last picture is of my BB, I know it's gross but I feel like it getting infected and I have a call into my PS to see what I need to do.
Hope all my fellow TT are healing greatly and good luck to the ones soon to get ur sexy back!
Day 15 and I am doin OK, though I have had some...

I am going in tomorrow for my 2 week post-op that was supposed to be a 3 week but it looks like I have contracted an infection in my BB. Ugggh, part of the risk of surgery! I was researching complications of TT and landed on a site of women who hated their results because of complications! I am glad I didn't run across that site before surgery! However I am not saying I am the smartest human being but I did my fair share of research before making my decision! I clearly understood the risk including something as serious as death. Being only 2 weeks po I pray that the BB infection is my worst obstacle besides the good day/ bad day issues. That being said I do not blame my PS as each of the other women on that site did! I wanted to tell them a little something but I figured I would come vent here! If my skin dies or I end up with nerocisis then it is part of the risk, if my tummy doesn't heal and I don't like the feel of the tightness 1yr from now and my scar is tender from time to time AGAIN it is a risk I was willing to take to be more emotionally secure with myself! And the ladies in which this has happened to that are blaming their PS should be ashamed of theirselves for lack of research and information going into such an evasive surgery! One lady said i got something called "narcotics" i think thats what he said...... I was like really u dont even know when he explained it to u, cmon take ur head out and research, itcould happen to any of us. I pray that God puts his healing hands around my body and cures my BB and keeps my body in healing and good Heath till I can get on with my workout and clean eating to take care of it myself physically!
Of course I'm eating ok but dear God I have never really watched sodium intake and OMG I know now when I have ate tooooo much! I think that's my bad days, I am trying to get that under control with Jamie Eason's Clean Eating Plan!
OK Ladies, great news I do NOT have an infection...

Here is a funny story. My daughter who is 10 yr old had to be picked up from school today because she was sick. So when I picked her up she asked if we were going home and I told her no, I had a Dr appt with the tummy Dr. I would not typically take my 10 yr old with me, although I have been very open and honest with them about the procedure. But with a possible BB infection I could not put it off till Monday. So, Last week she asked to see a picture of my Dr. so I obliged, she didnt say much then. On the way I asked her if she was glad that she was going to meet him and to my surprise she said No, I am scared! I could imagine that a Dr who gives shots is scary but one who cuts your tummy off and sucks your fat out to a 10 yr old is terrifying!! But then she said Im scared he gonna look at me (as she puts her index finger and thumb on her chin) and say well lets see what work we can do on you....Oh and your Japanese so you will have small boobs, you should call me in a few years and I can fix that!!! I almost died at that silly girl! Mind you she is tiny and not an ounce of fat and toataly georgeous! I know she is my duaghter but really she is!
Anyhow, I am feeling good today, and will not update till next Friday unless something important happens. I will also Post pics again on Friday!
Last, I just want to ask that each of you send a prayer up when you read this, yes stop right now, and ask that God be with each of the family members and everyone effected by the horrible Conneticut Elementary School MASSACAR. Amen
I am doing great! Still swelling of course! But...

There really hasn't been any cons for me, this has been life changing and I love the new me. I feel like, I look how I feel now! Maybe it is superficial to some people but I believe that a positive attitude effects every aspect of your life and in my old body I couldn't find that positive attitude!
I hope that everyone is doing well and healing fine.
My Doctor: Ahmad H. Ahmadi, MD
I saw Dr. Ahmadi on a local TV show and have been researching him for almost 4 years. I scheduled a consult with him and he and his staff were amazing! I have enjoyed his staff and do not have to wait, when I arrive early they even take me back within 2 min. He is very soft spoken and not very comforting but he is friendly and he truly is an artist. I was looking into having a BL and he informed me that he would do it but would not get enough improvement for the scars I would receive as my BA that I had 10 yrs ago still looked great. So I felt like he was not trying to take my money just because I had an intrest. Follow up has been fine, it is short, quick and sweet. They did call me a few times after the surgery to check on me. I feel as if his staff could be a little more experienced, but I do like all of them and they have always made me feel welcomed, but when I ask questions I do not feel like I get a straight answer at times. But that is my only complaint not that the girls at the office are not great!
