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

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?

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)

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

If you're reasonably fit you won't need any special supplies. I didn't bother and I made out fine with what I had. A recliner would have been nice but, not having one, I made do without it. I slept in my own bed from day 1. It might... READ COMMENT

Thank you for being brutally honest and posting photos of yourself when sitting down. We don't see too many post operative photos of what tummies look like post operatively when sitting down. So welcome to the Brutally Honest Body... READ COMMENT

Showing off our nice midriffs when standing is EASY because we are proud when they're looking tight and youthful. Showing off that spare tire when sitting takes a LOT more courage so we just might have to start a new forum and invite... READ COMMENT

I totally understand your disappointment with your results! I'm also one of those people who wasn't quite satisfied with my results first time around so I had a revision. You would be wise to check what that insurance policy covers. ... READ COMMENT

I have to be honest, your BB does not look like it should. The GOOD news is that it should be easy enough to fix. Your skin does look tighter than before though. You might wish to ask some of the doctors here on RealSelf what they... READ COMMENT
