I'm 5'4 and 130 pounds. I have two kids that did a number on my stomach. Pretty much same story as everyone else on here. I had a tummy tuck, muscle repair, and liposuction done about 3 months ago. My surgery was at 8 am and I had an overnight stay in the hospital. My doctor came back by around 6pm to make sure I was feeling ok and that I could get up and walk. This is a hard surgery to have, the recovery is pretty intense. You'll have back pain from walking hunched over, you'll get sick of your drains sticking out of you, you'll miss sleeping on your side, you'll hate being constipated from the pain drugs. But once you get past those first few weeks you'll be fine, you'll see you survived and you'll love your new stomach. I still have some swelling at night, but other than that I'm feeling back to normal. My scar line is low and thin and can be hidden under underwear. I feel like I can now wear a bikini without making anybody want to gag. My doctor told me I have what they call the 20 week shelf, because you look constantly 20 weeks pregnant. I'm happy to report that I no longer look pregnant.

3 years post op

Today is my three year anniversary of getting tucked. I still maintain that it was the best money I ever spent. The scar has lightened and doesn't bother me at all.

I originally met Dr Rumalla during a consultation about 5 years ago for rhinoplasty. He surprised me by saying that he didn't think I needed to have anything done. I appreciated that he was honest with me and that he wasn't just in this for the money. It was based on his honesty that I chose to go back when I was looking to get a tummy tuck. I wanted to know if I was truly a candidate and knew that if I wasn't he would be the one to tell me. I appreciated that he came back to check on me in the hospital the night of my surgery. I had many follow up visits to ensure that I was healing well and that I didn't have any complications. I'm very impressed with my results and would recommend Dr. Rumalla to anyone looking to have an abdominoplasty.
