I'm a 33 y/o who has an almost 5 y/o and a 16 mo. old. I've lost almost 60 lbs. since my pregnancy. I've always had a flabby belly, but it definitely got worse, worse, worse with the pregnancies. I'm 5'2" and weigh about 150, but I wear a size 10 (sometimes an 8!), so I don't feel just grossly obese. . .
I went for a consultation a week ago hoping to be a candidate for SlimLipo, but both the nurse and doctor thought there was too much skin and recommended a TT with lipo of the "bra fat." I guess I'd never really thought of myself as a "weight loss" person, but I suppose I am. . . I had c-sections with both babies and recovered quite nicely from both of them. I've never had general anesthesia, so that terrifies me. I guess I've watched too much TV - I think of waking during surgery and not being able to communicate - or even not waking at all. Elective surgery is a big decision, but I'm so tired of having a belly in my lap. I wasn't super impressed with the bedside manner of the doc (big deal to me) so since we're thinking TT, I'm seeing a different doc who several of my friends used and loved for their breast reductions. I'll go for that consult on Monday. It's hard to know who to ask about TT docs - I don't want anyone to know I'm doing this - and I'm sure others feel the same way! Suggestions? Comments? I appreciate any feedback!
