I am a 29 year old mother of three ages 8, 7, and 11 months. I weight 170lbs. Like many of you ladies pregnancy has ruined my lovely body!! I have disliked my body since after the birth of my oldest son after I gave birth to him I was left with a lot of weight to lose and soon after his birth I was pregnant again

yes that's right I was one of the people that you hear about going in for their 6 week check up and find out they are in fact again pregnant so to say the least the 60lbs I gained with him remained with me and somehow I managed to gain another 10lbs so now you can really imagine what my belly looked like. After her delivery I managed to lose 60lbs and keep it off.

Seven years later I was pregnant again with what I call my birthday present. Last year I gave birth on my birthday to my last child and with that pregnancy I didn't gain any weight but that's how I was left with this terrible skin fold that isn't going anywhere despite all of the excersie I do hence my decision to have a tummy tuck.

Im tired of being self concisous in clothing and having a butt in the front and in the back. I have stalked realself for about a year now and enjoyed following many of you ladies on your tummy tuck journeys and now it is my turn. I struggled with wanting to write my review because I didn't want to open up about this but considering the fact that I really have no one else to talk to about it I have chosen to open up.I figured what better present can I give myself for my 30th birthday than to go into it with a new body so instead of being in pain on my birthday for two years in a row I'm going in 19 days before so by my birthday I will not be in as much pain and I can give my son an enjoyable 1st birthday and so today March 9th I am deciding to join many others on waking up from the flat side side!!!

I will add before and after photos later!! Wish me luck!!!!

Well today is post op day 5 and I feel pretty good. So far dealing with the constipation and swelling has been the worst but I am taking it one day at a time and glad I had the courage to follow through!!

Just waking up from a nap and I am feeling pretty good, but I must say I hate these side effects from the antibiotics. I really do I knew I signed up for pain, tightness, muscle spasms and swelling but it definitely wasn't in the plan to get a darn yeast infection and if eel it coming so I guess I will be in Walgreens early to ensure I get something for that, then off to see Dr. K for possible removal of Hesse dag on stables and a possible drain however I won't push it ;-) anyhow just wanted to check in with you ladies and give a special thank you to tjuana for helping me find the perfect cg. Well thank you ladies. Goodnight and those of you going in for surgery tomorrow good luck and those that are in the planning stage take your time and you will know when you have found the right doctor and napping healing to the rest of us and remember above all else patience is key!!!!

So today officially makes 1 week pot op and I can honestly say that I am doing ok. I haven't been taking any pain meds since Thursday and have been pretty much dealing with the pain which isn't too bad. I'm just tired of popping pills so that's basically the reason for that. My real issue has been this compression garment. I got the one that my doctor specifically recommended and it keeps rolling up my thighs and it is very painful. I am constantly pulling it down which temporarily relieves the pain bit not for long does anyone have any recommendations or tricks that I can try to ease my discomfort?!?! Please help!!

Well it's been 3 weeks now and I can't believe...

Well it's been 3 weeks now and I can't believe it!! My 30th birthday was a couple days ago and unfortunately I wasn't feeling too good so I slept through it. One thing I can say is this is a loooonnnngggg slow recovery process but its what I signed up for. I am happy with my results and I know in a few months it will only get better. Getting this tt has made my boobs look HUGE. Omg it's crazy! Well I just wanted to give a quick update. I will post pics when my hubby gets home.

I have made it to the 6 week mark and I feel...

I have made it to the 6 week mark and I feel good!! I look good and am happy with my results thus far. I must admit I am tired of the swelling but that's what I signed up for!! Please ignore the water stains on the mirror in the pics.

I chose doctor Katsaros because of his bedside manner and his honestly. He didn't attempt to sell me on transforming my whole body as others did. I also like his office staff as they are very professional and friendly.
