I had my son when I was 17 and after 2 years... have decided not to have any more kids. Before my pregnancy, I was a size 7 and now I'm a size 13. I'm happy with all my curves and body except for my tummy. Everytime I put on a shirt, I feel like I have this huge bulge and nothing looks good. I've had lots of people put me down on me getting a TT but after lots of researching and thinking, I've come to the realization that this is for me, not anyone else. I've just got done setting up my consultation and am super excited.
This website has helped my so much and Kimmers, you are an inspiration. Thanks for everything.
Alright. Here's my tummy as of right now....

I miss my baby boy so much. I so just want him home but my mom wants him to stay a couple more days till I'm feeling a little bit better. Just hearing his voice makes me cry.
I've had my first BM yesterday which wasn't so bad. I'm feeling way better than day one. Can not wait till I can do a little bit more. I just hate laying around not doing anything. 3day post-op today!

When I started looking into my tummytuck way back in febuary, I weighed 172. Before my surgery, I was 160... and now I am 145-149. I am so proud of myself. This journey has been a long and hard one but the result is priceless. I love looking in the mirror and not feel ashamed of my tummy.
My scar is healing nice. I love it. My belly button on the otherhand... I'm not too sure. It doesn't look bad but there is a bump... kinda like a pimple or something right on the edge. It doesn't hurt or anything but I really don't like the way it looks. Ill have to ask my PS the next time I see him.
I'm turning 20 in two weeks and guess what I'm doing!!? :) SHOPPING SPREE! Lol. Good luck to all the ladies out there. Hope everyone is healing fine.
Hello ladies! Its been 3 months! WOW! Does time...

Its been 3 months! WOW! Does time fly by fast! I've been doing great! My scar is fading. Not as dark as before. I've been eating healthy and exercising whenever I can. Though... I have only lost a couple pounds since my last post. Right now I am ranging from 142-144. Goal weight is 135, so less than 10 pounds left. Its seems like it is getting harder to drop those pounds but I am trying. I notice I still swell only in the upper tummy...mostly at night. I don't have much to complain about. Went out swimming in a two piece since forever! I love my tummy and can't believe I went through with the surgery. I can sleep on my side now. And pretty much do everything I can before my surgery. I am going to my 3 months post op appointment on Friday. Will update next month. Posting new pictures. :)
Hello lovely ladies!!! 4 months post op now!!...
- 26 Sep 2011
4 months post op now!! YAY! I've been meaning to get my post up sooner but everything has been so crazy! My husband got one of his finger broken and cut off the other one. Luckly both were saved and now he's just in the healing process. :)
Wow. I can't believe I'm already 4 months post-op. Everything has been great. My scar is looking a little bit on the red side but it's not bothering me too much. I've been rubbing bio oil and cocoa butter vitamin e oil on it every morning and night. My PS has told me to rub the scar hard and in circles so thats what i've been doing. Last month, I did go in and got to talk to him about my BB. He says it looks like its a leftover strech mark that somehow ended up right by my BB. He said we could cut it off or leave it. The bump isn't so bad so i'm not sure if i want to leave it or get it cut off and have a scar there. We did decided to wait til December when i have my next appointment to decide what we both wanted. I love my PS. He's the absolute best. Swelling wise... I mostly swell just at night after my long days. I've have lost a couple more pounds since my last update. I was at 172 and now at 138-139. A total of about 34 lbs lost. YAY. My goal is 135. What i've been doing to lose weight is eating healthy and just exercising. I eat 1200 calories a day and try to burn off 420 calories a week. Myfitnesspal.com is a great resource to any ladies out there that is trying to lose weight. It's just a form about calories intake. I love it!
Again... I love my tummy. I love how everything looks and DO NOT REGRET A SINGLE THING. I hope all you ladies out there are recovering well and enjoying your body.
6 months post op... well a little bit over 6...

Dr. King is the best surgeon. I couldn't ask for anyone better. He's an angel. Really understanding and takes time to explain everything. He's so kind and his staff is excellent.
