I'm an "older" tummy tuck candidate. I'm 5'10" and weigh 150 pounds and 62 years old. I'm relatively slim but have had a bit of a blubber belly for almost as long as I can remember. I have not had children so I can't even blame my protruding abdomen on childbirth. I've had my weight down to... READ MORE

"Skin only" tummy tuck with short vertical scar ---- Revision to correct upper abdominal loose skin

I had a mini TT just over five months ago with very good results. I feel that my results could have been even better if I had had "the works"--a FULL TT!! Almost immediately post op I suspected that I didn't have a FULL TT (the STANDARD TT that I had paid for) because my BB was left untouched... READ MORE

13 days post op of Abdominoplasty, I had about 110cc of brownish blood aspiration of hematoma. What is the risk of infection?

Just wondering if you're the same person as MAGVIT who had surgery on July 2nd. I had wanted to follow your journey but couldn't find anything new under that identity. READ COMMENT

Wow, 17 days after surgery already! How time does fly! Looking fab so far!! Sending healing vibes your way. Hey, I'm just a year younger than you (born 1951) and just remember if I can do this twice than surely you'll easily get... READ COMMENT

Your body will "scream" at you when you try doing to much. Fatigue is a big issue after a tummy tuck! I'm ten weeks post now and pretty much back to feeling completely normal again. I still have some tightness and numbness but I... READ COMMENT

Wow! I love the concaveness of your abdomen! Hope you're feeling better! READ COMMENT
