Im already two weeks post op and i so surprised at how easy this surgery was..... (I walked 4 blocks the day of my surgery). The Tummy tuck was the main reason that I had surgery. The rest was just a bonus, and as of right now I'm happy with all of it. I still have a long way to go but I decided I do want my journey recorded.
fears are setting in...
Hi everyone, I'm two weeks and two days post. I noticed for the first time today, that I still have about an inch and a half of my scar that I so desperately wanted to be rid of. I'm not sure why it's still there because this was one of the two reasons for the mommy
Makeover....I'm very concerned as more and more of my fears are being realized. I had some concerns before my surgery about my PS about getting the tummy tight because in his before and afters, most of his patients were very very loose. The reason that was given to me is a large % of patients come from out of town, and they have to take post ops at just 1week and that made sense to me.I'm having second thoughts now, hahaha. It appears I'm developing a Montrose Cord as well. I will call PS in the morning to go everything on my mind.
l'm not convinced
My surgery was on June 6th, so I'm just about two months post ok. I've been very patient in my healing process. I have still not figured out what was done during my surgery. I went I. For a full tummy tuck and I did not receive one. Nothing above my belly button was moved, and very little below was moved. I still have scars, stretch marks and fat. My skin wasn't pulled tight so a revision is in my future. What I don't like is that most people get one chance to do something like a tummy tuck. I now have to do it twice, pay twice and pray twice as hard.
My Dr chose to cut half of my lower an off instead of all and I'm so disappointed. I will keep you updated

7 months post
I've been counting the days until my revision. Well at this point waiting to talk to someone about my revision. Please note the scar on my tummy is the same scar on my tummy in my before photos. Also please note that this scar was below the belly button to start with. According to idk every PS I've spoken with including Dr Tachmes everything below the belly button is gone.
It only takes one mistake ladies....
Here are my before and after photos from one year post-op. Ladies not only was it a bad T T, but the lack of compassion really put this in a league of its own....... I you not. .......
Dr. Tachmes is under investigation
Dr. Tachmes is under investigation by the Florida dept of health. I'm unsure why at this time, but I received a letter asking if I b want to remain informed. So again, use caution...
