Yily Doll-- I survived! LOL

Hello Realselfers, I am new to the forum and have...

Hello Realselfers,
I am new to the forum and have visited the site numerous times to review the amazing work performed by doctors. I am at the beginning of my journey and hope to learn some great info from yall. I am a 31 yo mom who is done having children and look forward to getting my sexy back. I am 5'2, 168 lbs and have recently lost 20 lbs and countless inches by hardwork, diet and exercise. I still have 30 more lbs I want to lost but I know that all of the cunches in the world couldnt get my tummy back tight and toned the way it was before my child, esp after c-section. So Im on here to continnue to learn from you guys and to get some tips about recovery, what to expect, and most importantly doctor recs. Ive seen numerous posts about Dr Tattlebaums tucks but I want to get the lipo done at the same time and I dont think that he specilizes in lipo. I want the doc to be skilled in performing contoring work.

Thanks for any word of encouragement and info. Look forward to hearing from you all!



Hi, Dr. Weston in Reston VA is amazing! I got a full tt with lipo, implant removal and lift. My results are amazing so far! My 3 month mark is at the end of October. Good luck! I highly recommend him and show all my friends my new tummy and bb :)

Thanks for the feedback. Ive been keeping my eye on Dr. Weston!
Dr Tattlebaum is amazing I didn't have lipo but the people who did from him, were happy. The most important thing is a good low scar and good belly button and tight tummy he is the best! Good lick

Update with Before pics

Hi again,
Im finally posting some before pics on here so that you can see what Im working with..lol. I lost 20 lbs and gained alot of muscle from diet, exercise and weigh training. I feel like my body isnt showing my "real self" after all of the hard work, so Im here to explore my options. I know a tummy tuck would do wondered for my figure, esp since my lil abs are already trying to show through. I also want lipo on my arms, upper back/bra line, inner thighs and knee area. BTW, Im 5'1", 165 lbs, but my build isnt petite. Genetically speaking Ive always been "solid" and could probably never have the small petitie (Kourtney Kardashian) build of 115-120 lbs. Im ok with that becuz I can change that, but I do want to lose another 20-25 lbs and get down to about 138-140. My ultimate goal is to do a fitness competition!!

Hi Dolls,
Yily confirmed my date for Friday, Feb 28th and I'm staying at Yasmin RH with my new Realself buddy. I'm scared but excited at the same damn time..Lol! I have all of my meds, except Lovenox and Percocet. I pick those up next week. I'm all packed and ready to get this over with so I can be on the road to recovery. I'll take some more pics soon for everyone to see me before. I've been hitting the gym hard yall. I have gained alot of muscle so hopefully it shows through after my procedures. My measures now are: 5'1", 168lbs, 38C/30/38. Hope to get down to 145lbs, 36C, 25, 40. Here's hoping!! More pics coming soon...

Was the $4400 an all inclusive price or was that just for the surgery and meds?

It included the surgery, care at CIPLA, post op visits. Got my meds in the states.
