Fussy old broad had TWO tummy tucks!

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

Questions from Blubberbelly No More

How do surgeons tighten the fascia ABOVE the umbilicus when the umbilical stalk is left attached during an abdominoplasty?

Due to poor skin elasticity in my upper abdomen my umbilical stalk was left attached as my surgeon did not think he could get it to drift downward sufficiently to have an... READ MORE

Should I expect much improvement IF I have a tummy tuck revision? (photo)

I had a "standard abdominoplasty" almost five months ago resulting in a very tight abdomen BELOW my belly button but lots of redundant skin ABOVE it. My umbilical stalk was... READ MORE

Can I expect a much tighter upper abdomen if I have a tummy tuck revision considering that my skin has poor elasticity?

I had a mini abdominoplasty with lipo of my upper abs, flanks, and hips five months ago. I now have lots of loose skin between my chest and belly button when bending over and... READ MORE

Operating room time needed to do abdominoplasties?

How much longer does it take a surgeon to perform a full abdominoplasty (with muscle plication) than a mini abdominoplasty when there is not more than a pound of skin to... READ MORE

Will my waist circumference be reduced to make a notable difference? (photos)

I had a mini abdominoplasty almost six months ago with undesirable results. (Too much redundant skin remaining above my umbilicus). I am scheduled for a full abdominoplasty but... READ MORE

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

I had about 110cc's of brownish blood aspirated today due to a prominent bulge to my abdomen after having abdominoplasty surgery 13 days ago. Would this be considered a LARGE... READ MORE

Have you booked a revision? I also still have rolls when I bend over or when I'm wearing tight spandex shorts and sit down (and that's after having a second tuck). I've come to terms with the fact that I have poor elasticity and my... READ COMMENT

I hear you on that hour glass look!! My dream too that didn't happen. I'm pretty much straight up both sides. So, did you have both a mini tuck and a full tuck, like me? How far apart were the two surgeries??? Did your original... READ COMMENT

So...when you mention that you wouldn't have ANOTHER revision are you saying that you've already had TWO tummy tucks and still need more work to get the results you're hoping for??? Personally, I would never again have lipo as the lipo... READ COMMENT

If you've got a big mirror you should be able to take shots of yourself from a little further away. I've taken all my own photos. I know it's not easy to NOT look for perfection after paying so much! I'm sure we all want the best... READ COMMENT

Not me! I'm over a year post pop and am still numb below my BB. I figure this numbness will probably last forever. Oh well.....better that than having a huge blubber belly!! READ COMMENT
