After numerous years of intensive abdominal exercises, I concluded the only way to rid my body of the excessive skin and stubborn fat in the area below my belly button was to have a tummy tuck.
I had my tummy tuck on June 17 and less than 1 week post-op I'm feeling fine. Of course there is a little soreness and nausea when I'm standing, but for the most part I'm okay. Following my doctor's orders, I opted to get the pain pump to manage the pain associated with the procedure. Although I've never had a major surgery before, I believe the pain pump really made a huge difference.
As for my scars and general appearance of my stomach, I'm pleased. Due to the stretch marks I already had above my belly button, I still have them under my belly button. I also had to have a "T" incision because I did not have enough skin to pull down. Even with these 2 things, I am still very pleased with my results and the service I received.
