I am a 24 year old single mother of 3 children as well as work full time and go to college online full-time. All of my kids are 5 and younger. I have had a very busy life with little or no success to losing the extra baggage around my stomach. After my youngest son was born two years ago I have lost about 30 pounds already... every where but my belly it seemed. I started to get depressed from it.
I started researching December of 2010 for a more permanant assistance for my problem. I came across this website which inspired me to look into a tummy tuck. I first met with my Doctor in January of this year. I just had my procedure on February 17, 2011. It has been 6 days.
Thanks to this website and the advice of my Doctors office I was well prepared for the surgery and had an idea of how much pain I would be going through later (so I thought). I had the Avelar tummy tuck and some lipo. The surgery went smooth and i was home the same day. I was very tired the first day and was sore. I was moving around by day 2po. I was slower moving but getting around decent for just having it done. I went back to work on day 5po. I have experienced more discomfort then anything.
I decided to post on here since many women have went through this and are looking into it. Yes I did have pain the first few days but by taking the pain meds on time I was not doing to bad. And here we are to today... day 6po. :) I am at work after taking my son to and from school and taking my other 2 to the babysitter. I do know my limits. I can tell if I am starting to do to much when I start to swell some.
I am hoping to be adding a few before and after pictures on here shortley.
Well it is almost one month and one week. I will...

So far every time I have visited their office for questions or for the surgery, the staff has been very helpful. I was very comfortable there and the Doctor was very knowledgable. He answered all my questions and was very polite.
