My husband, although he never told me that I needed any work done, understood my feelings and encouraged me to look into a tummy tuck. I did my homework and found a doctor that I wanted to speak with. Upon the first consult, I and my husband both felt comfortable with Dr. Kurley.
Dr. Kurley told me what I already knew from having done my research - I was NOT going to lose the 'pooch' in my belly without some sort of procedure to correct the problem. I'm only 4'11". I had two large children - the first just shy of 10 pounds and the second just shy of 9. I also had several years of invitro-fertilization, which includes tons of hormone shots and drugs that potentially caused weight gain. All of this to say that I gained a LOT of weight over the years before and during my pregnancies that just didn't want to go away. I was frustrated and depressed about the way I looked. Dr. Kurley only verified what I already knew - my muscles were shot and I wasn't going to be able to tone or lose that extra flab in the front.
I quickly decided that I liked Dr. Kurley and I was ready for this change. On March 16 (8 weeks ago), I went in for my TT. Although it was more painful than I thought it would be, I would do it all over again!! I am so happy with my results!! Two pant sizes smaller than what I was before the surgery, and even those pants have room in them!!! I haven't worn a size 8 since before kids! I'm so happy that I chose to do this for myself! It has given me confidence that I haven't had in years! It's also encouraged me to continue on the journey - I'm working on my buns and thighs to get those trim, too!
I've been so pleased with the results, that I'm also saving for a breast reduction and lift. That will be the final transformation to a whole new me!!
