Mini Tummy Tuck Scheduled 09/26/2011 - Tulsa, OK

I am 37 years old and have 2 boys both by C Section. I am 5'0 and weight around 125-130lbs.

I've always wanted to have a Tummy Tuck. The doctor recommended a Mini Tummy Tuck because I am short waisted, have a high belly button, belly button does not need repair and not enough skin above belly button for a Full TT.

Day 2 Not a whole lot of draining going on......

Day 2
Not a whole lot of draining going on....hoping to get drain out at Dr appt on Friday. It hurt like hell to get out of the hospital bed yesterday. I threw up twice yesterday. Today was much easier to get out of bed and walk around. I really want to look at my new stomach but havent gotten the nerve up to do so. The Mini TT has been mostly the same as my previous C Sections. I think being 10 years old and the doctor also tightened my muscles - which is a good thing! I will definately post pics as soon as I take a peek and get them posted asap. I know firsthand there is not alot of Mini TT before/after pictures out there to view.

I am meeting with a surgeon next Monday. I also have a short abdomen and my belly button is still in great shape. I am 5' 2" and 124 lbs. no loose skin above the belly button. Is just the lower half called a mini tummy tuck or what constitutes a mini tummy tuck? I look a lot like you did.

Day 3 Post-Op. Felt sick this am, I should have ate something before I took my pills, not after. thank goodness I did not throw up. I took a nap for a couple hours in the am. I have only taken 2 pain pills today....I started a load of laundry, I had to use a pair of tongs to get the dirty laundry out of the hamper, emptied the dishwasher and made dinner. Feeling a lot better but trying to take it easy. Not much drainage either. I want to take a shower badly, but not sure exactly how that'll work. I havent been brave enough to take my binder off to take a peak. I can tell I'm very swollen. No bowel movement yet....,lots of noise going on though..hopefully I'll have one soon and it will go smoothly. I have been taking Colace....

Hey, I just had a mini tt with my mommy makeover and I am so happy with the results. You are going to look sooooo good(-: My PS recomends scar guard and scar esthetic for scar treatment after surgery. I haven't started them yet so I can't tell you how they work but the reviews online are good for both of them. I also bought the scar sheets but I don't know if I can use them along with the other products. The sheets should help flatten if your scar is raised or bumpy at all. I hope this helps(-: Good luck!

I tried Mederma after both of my C Sections, it didn't do anything for me...:(

MEDERMA FOR SCAR TREATMENT!.. i KNOW ALOT OF LADIESUSE DIFFERENT CREAMS BUT IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU BUY BUT SO FAR FROM WHAT I HAVE BEEN STUDYING MEDERMA AND PALMERS OIL IS BEST FOR YOUR TT SCAR
  • Reply
what kind of creams???
  • Reply
Yes sweetie full tt! There is a few ladies but the search here is strange sometimes I know ladies who dont need full tt but you can just find them under tummy tuck! Do most of the project now so it wont keep you worrying! I am so getting ready now for everything as far as creams and pillows pjs.

I am working on getting prepared....have several things I need to get done this weekend. My 10 year old has a Science Project due next Friday so that is going to be very interesting to get completed. This site has been wonderful.....but I wish there was more info and pics on the Mini. You are getting a Full Tummy Tuck in February 2012?
