My Journey Begins - Sugar Land, TX

Hello everyone, I must say I too have stalked this...

Hello everyone, I must say I too have stalked this site for about a year now. So here is a little about me. Im 34, married with three kids. My children are 16, 15, and 12. I had my children young and got that out of the way! Now its time to get me back right :-). I am 5'7 and weight 260lbs. I have 2months to loose 25 lbs ( my goal) . I AM ALL TUMMY. I love being a juicy woman, I love my curves, I just hate my tummy butt. Im sched for may 7th and I am nervous... but excited and ready!!!! I cold turkey changed my diet and have started working out chicken breast and veggies only for this lady ! My doc says he will do my procedure, with a mesh, no lipo so tummy tuck only- lipo will be completed about 3-4 months after surgery if needed. Im ok with this, but I am curious if anyone has had the mesh applied??? Does it increase or decrease healing time, easier to recuperate? I heard it decreases the risk of re gaining weight.. is this true? Any and all opinions welcomed.

Hello everyone! I only posted one review prior to my surgery. I just stopped by to tell eveyone that I have had an amazing Journey!!!!!!!!!!. Dr. Horndeski is the best Physician i could have chosen. I had surgery on May 7th2013. I took two weeks off from work- I recovered nicely. I have had follow -up appts with Dr. Hordeski initially weekly and now monthly. I had the Tummy tuck with mesh placement/ muscle plication and so far so good. I also had a tummy tuck with NO liposuction. I have read reviews about Dr. Horndeski. I can honestly say he has the best Staff, Liza is the best best best Physician asssistant I have ever encountered. This practice is wonderful and Dr. Horndeski has the best bedside manner. I am a registered nurse. I have encountered multiple plastic surgeons and physicians from all over the world. I can tell you from first hand expierience that This Doc by far is Wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!! I am loving my results and my incision has healed nicely! I will post pic soon!!!!!
