I had surgery on the same scar four times - one as a child and 3 C-Sections. What remained could be called a "pouch". Other than this horrible addition to my abdomen, I was in good shape. I was a good weight and exercised regularly. Pants never fit quite right - a size 4 on the waist, but needing a 6 to make room for "the pouch". I felt terrible in bathing suits or naked. After workouts, trainers and diets all failed me, I decided to look into a tummy tuck. I discussed the mini, as I was a great candidate for it, but went with the full, so that I be sure it felt / looked complete. Surgery went as planned. The recovery went as planned. Pain meds worked well. I didn't use them after 4 or 5 days. One week of tight wrapping (like spanks, but thicker) 24 hours a day, second week of only night wrapping and then easing off as I felt comfortable. After two weeks, I was able to return to work, and although I couldn't have exercised or done heavy lifting, I felt really great! Tired at night. The scar is looking good - at 8 weeks, I'll start to apply Pro-Sil. This was so worth it!!!

Dr. Poulos truly is fantastic!! She was warm and an attentive listener when I first met her. She took the time to understand what I wanted and clearly explain pros and cons, benefits and cautions. Even as her last appointment one evening after what must have been a long day, she smiled and gave me her full attention. Her staff is just as great! I had a very small window due to work to be able to do this, and she made sure to accommodate my schedule, even though ordinarily I wouldn't have gotten a date for a few weeks later. The surgery went exactly as planned. Looking at my scar and my outstanding results, I think she is incredibly skilled as well!!! I haven't gone 8 weeks yet, so there is still swelling, but if I remained as I am now, I would be thrilled. I am amazed that there is still swelling. I feel and look fantastic!! This was the best decision I could have made for myself, and Dr. Poulos, her surgical team at the hospital and her staff made it comfortable and possible for me!!
