Since Feb 2013, I have lost 73# on my own through excercise and eating healthier/smaller portions. I decided on a full tummy tuck along with flanks lyposuction in Feb 2016. My surgery was done 6/28/16. As of today, I am 6 post surgery. I'm sore, but mostly my back because of leaning over. I'm going to continue to update with photos, news and what it really takes to get through this life altering choice.

Me, during my heaviest.

7 days post op

7 days post operation. One drain out, hopefully 2nd one out in 3 days. Back still aches from being bent over. Finally allowed to sleep in my bed, good bye recliner. Off pain meds, which is a good thing. So far, do good. *I must mention my amazing hubby, who took two wks off of work to wait on me.

It's been one month since my TT and Lypo. Muscle still sore underneath where my walls were stiched back together. Tire easily. But better day by day.

6mths post op

Down to #151. Lost all core strength and I'm working on regaining it. Learned that my body doesn't like the blue, long lasting dissolving stitches. My body spit some out. Had to have a little incision made along scar line to remove a stich so it can finally heal. Belly button is still giving me issues. Doesn't want to fully heal and close up. Slow going but still moving ahead.
Absolutely love my surgeon. He's always there for me and doesn't make me feel bad with my concerns.
Ready to get back to full excercise and start to tone and shape what I paid alot for. ????

I learned about Dr. Kang from a co-worker who had her eye lids lifted for medical reason. I meant woth the Dr. In Feb and he was detailed, spoke simple and softley. His office staff is fantastic. They are friendly and I called many times and they never acted irritated with me. I just has surgery 6 days ago, so I am still figuring this out as I go. WARNING: Coughing, sneezing hurts more than any part of this procedure. Drain tues are a pain the in the ass, but are a temporary must. I'll update more as this goes along.
