30-NO Kids, Mini Tummy Tuck W/Lipo - Warner Robins, GA

After losing 100 pounds over the course of 3...

After losing 100 pounds over the course of 3 years, I needed to have some work done. I have been hesitant to post about my life. I'm such a private person. I planned to change careers and go into the military; but, the military had a pay freeze and then started downsizing. So I ended up with a mini TT that still changed my life. If I had it to do all over again, I would. And, I'd still choose Gail and Dr. Slater at ABS.

The environment is welcoming. Secluded. Everybody there was friendly, the staff AND the other patients. It was almost like a secret bond.

I decided rather quickly to have the surgery done. That's just the type of person I am. I knew that it needed to be done when I realized the impact my naked appearance had on me. Don't get me wrong, I'm badd; but, sometimes, I just felt I could do better. Like the mistakes of my past were affecting my future prospects-yeah, I mean men too. (Looking at these pictures now-whoa! I wasn't even close to badd. But as the saying goes, if I aint, let me think what I think.)
I went in for a consult and secured the next available surgery date. I even attempted to bargain to get another lady's slot (she wouldn't give it up). I can't say I was mad at her. And when I ran into her on one of my follow up dates, she looked amazing too.

Have your money together ahead of time. I used a combo of no interest financing-which is completely paid off now. (Thank you Lord!!!)
I had a couple of visits prior to my surgery for counseling. Gail was soothing. She even gave me pointers. The day of, Dr. Slater even let me play my own music from my iPhone during the surgery. I would woke up one time sang a lil bit of my song and was gone again. The nurse anesthetists is worth her money. I didn't feel a thing. I came home from surgery the same day because my bestie is also amazing. The next day, I had a follow up appt. that went well. Take your meds on time to reduce feelings of pain.
Down time:
Week One-I was on my back. I needed help with everything. Even using the bathroom. My bestie loves me. Changing those bandages requires a level of courage. I didn't have any drains. Everything is relative after that.
Week Two-I'm touching and doing stuff I had no business attempting. I really thought I could. I put on a wig and a dress and got out the house. I also had another follow up. I can't believe how fast I healed. This process taught me so much about myself.

Week Three-I could see the difference. I was amazed. More importantly, I was happy with what I saw in the mirror. I even put on my cute post-op panties.

The scar healed very well and is at the bikini line with minimal scarring.

I will add other posts w/ additional pics and other posts with advice for anyone considering surgery. Although, I will say this now this now- if you are not happy with who you are at your core right now, nothing you do to your body will change that. Trends come and go: Big butts/little butts, fake breasts/ natural breasts, full lips/thin lips. BE TRUE TO YOU. To thine own self be true (Shakespeare).

Take care Dolls!

I think my smile says it all. I am very pleased with the results.

Dr. Slater and his wife Gail come highly recommended. If I had to get other work done, they would be my first choice. I had a five-star experience.
