Looking for a Houston doctor for a tummy tuck
- 8 months ago
Hello! I have been lurking on this site for about a week (ok, more like glued to the site) ever since I decided it's now or never to fix my stomach. Me: I just turned 50 and in decent shape 5'2" - 133 lbs). Last December, I had a bunch of health issues - diverticulitis, nonstop bleeding, low iron). Ever since then and after gaining even more of a stomach pooch than ever, I've decided it's now or never to do this. I'm looking for recommendations. So far, I've been to one doc here in Houston for a consult. He has an impeccable reputation, but not sure I was completely comfortable (was so turned off by the length of time I had to spend with his patient care person before he came in). I have two kids (one C-section and one vaginal delivery) and ever since then (21 years ago!), I have had loose skin, no muscle tone, wrinkly wiggly stomach (and not a day goes by that I don't hate it). So that's me. I'm scared to death of the surgery and the recovery, but am starting to get braver after reading all of your brave posts. I'm inspired! Thank you everyone for being for so tranparent!
