Just Want to Feel Beautiful Again - Wisconsin

Mother of two and they have pretty much destroyed my stomach. I am jsut plain tired of wearing girdles and I just want to wear clothes with out having to wear anything underneath them

I found my Dr. After moving to a new smaller town and she is amazing and she took the time to throughly explain all options available to me and WE both came to the conclusion that a tummy tuck is the best option for me I am so excited to go forward with the process.

Hi Miabellas,
I know what it's like myself to wear girdles to hide the belly. I also live in Milwaukee, WI and i plan to do my surgery hopefully in February to March. Who is your plastic surgeon? Did you pay for your surgery already?

Hi Kimshells!

My PS is Maida Parkins she is inside the watertown hospital. So far she has been great... The nurse I believe her name is Sarah is awesome I went in today unnanounced to ask some questions and she was more than happy to answer them. I go on friday or monday at the latest to pay and I am so excited for this. I feel that I am one step closer to feeling like me again!

If you have any more questions just PM me!!

I think that I have been scaring myself. I stopped in the PS office to ask some questions. I feel a tad bit better. I go on either friday or monday to pay and to schedule a date. I am so happy and anxious at the same time I feel one step closer to my goal. I am so glad that my PS is a woman... Later TTuckers and pray for me and I will pray for you! Happy Recovering!!

Went yesterday to pay the first half.... there was a hickup, I admit I was pretty frustrated. But I do have a surgery date it is 3/13/12. I am so excited and so scared all at the same time...I just cant wait to be on the other side of this whole process.... I am so excited to finally wear a pair of pants with a girdle but so scared of the wholw being put under and the whole though of surgery... but as always my fellow TTuckers pray for me and I will pray for you.
Happy Recovering!!

Well after a week of issues, I paid the first half and I am really excited and kind of nervous about the procedure... My date is 3/13/12 and with my pre-op on 3/7/12. I have a goal of losing 10 pounds before then which gives me about a little under two months to do so. I just can not wait to be on the other side of this journey. As always I will be praying for all of the TTuckers and please pray for me.

I am so nervous about the whole being put under thing but I know I will be okay though will post photos today of my "before". As always pray for me and I will do the same for you all.

How exciting!!   Soon you will be on the other side and we will all be here cheering you on.

Hey girl! You must a felt good after you made your last payment. Anyway I'm also worried about being put "under" but in God I trust & we will be alright. R u staying overnight in the hospital? I don't remember if I asked you that question before. You should put up some before pics.

I agree in god I trust. I believe it is jitters that's all. I am not going to be staying overnight because I really don't like being away from home. I really don't feel comfortable at the hospital. Plus I have better cable at home lol!

Been trying to post my pictures with no avail ......

Been trying to post my pictures with no avail ... My pre-op is in 4 days and I am so excited and nervous at the same time....my emotions go from super excited to super scared and nervous all at the same time. But I know this is the right thing for me. I will be so happy the day that I can just wear jeans and a white t-shirt with no girdles. As always I am praying for all of you and please pray for me. I like to think that this forum is a type of sisterhood so it is imPerativw that we have to be there for one another.

Well my pre-op physical went ok. It is just surreal that in a week the thing that makes me so insecure will be fixed. That all I will have to do is just throw on some jeans and a t shirt. That I will not have to buy a sIze higher or buy my pants in long so that I can pull them all the way up to my belly button. The Only thing that I am a little nervous about is the whole being put under. But I think I will be okay. I carry all of my sisters that are going through this journey with me in my heart and I pray for us all.
I have to say good luck and happy healing as I will be going in tomarrow... Keep in touch

Well ladies today was the big day! I was so nervous, I was so scared about being put under but everything was ok. I got to the hospital at six am went back at 730. That is all I remember. I swear I kept drifting in and out all day until 3pm. Then I came home. I can't believe that it really did happen and that I am on the other Side of this journey. I'm not really swollen yet but I know between tomorrow and Sunday I will be I have not seen my stomach yet I hope everything turns out ok.

Day 1 I am so much pain I have a pain pump and it is not working I feel smaller and the compression garment is slightly to big. I hope that this is the right thing that I have done because the pain is intense. My muscles hurt all I can do us just lay down please my fellow sisters please pray for me and I promise to pray for you.
I hope you are having some relief from the pain. Did you contact your PS?

Stupid people

Hello guys!!!

I hate the fact that I got a tummy tuck done with no lipo and people mainly my husband thinks that I brought my figure. That the 50 plus pounds that I lost was solely based on the tummy tuck. I am in tears right now because I am sick of the judgement and mainly my husband side of the family giving me hell about my decision. I try my best to be a good wife and mommy and I do have my short comings but I am so tired of the constant judging and negativity. I don't think that I made a wrong choice at all I just don't know how to handle no having any support from anyone.

Thanks for listening to my rant ladies!!
You looks amazing! - Don't let people put you down. You are rocking that body.

Rude! Tell them to shut it. It's your body and your money. If you bought it it's yours. Tell them you can refer them to your dr so they can buy one.
