My lower tummy and belly button have stretch marks...

My lower tummy and belly button have stretch marks but more importantly is stretch out beyond what excersise and diet can correct. I am 32 years old with 3 children, 14, 11, and 6. I have wanted a TT for years and I feel so ashamed of my stomach I rarely show it to anyone. I am only 115lbs so it's just the tummy that's my issue. I have several concerns: my Dr. said I need a mini...which I agree, I am just concerned if it will give me the tummy I want. Also, he said I will be back to work (desk job) within a week....I took 11 days off total. since I am not telling my employer what I will be doing on my vacation time, I am hoping he is correct and all goes well. There are several women on here with surgeries scheduled in March--let's keep each other posted and support each other during recovery! good luck!!


I am 32 years old, have 3 children and ever since...

I am 32 years old, have 3 children and ever since my first child 14 years ago I have hidden my saggy stomach. I have waited a long time to do this for myself but after reading a lot of reviews on the mini I worry about the outcome. There seem to be a lot more women on here unhappy with a mini than the full. From looking at my photos do you think my Dr. made the right choice?

I am scheduled for March 3rd (just two weeks away). we discussed both the full and mini but he recommended I go with the mini, small amount of lipo and he will suture the lower muscles.


I just added my post op pictures at 6 days......

I just added my post op pictures at 6 days....there are still sharpie markings on my stomach as I can't take a shower until tomorrow. I had the drain tube removed today and I have to wait 24 hours for the wound to heal before I can shower. I think he did a great job!

Dr. Meldrum was very sweet, and seemed to genuinely care about my concerns and was sensitive to how frightened I was. he had a wonderful bedside manner!
