I am a African-American woman, approximately 124 lbs and 5'4'', 45 years, athletic build with lax ab muscles and excess skin. After several years of considering a tummy tuck I thought the time is now and I am so glad I did it! It's still pretty early in the recovery, I am seven days post-op , while I am swollen and a bit sore I am feeling great. I am very pleased with my decision to go ahead and have the abdominal pasty (tummy tuck) and even more pleased with my results so far, thanks to my plastic surgeon Dr. Tholen and his WONDERFUL team, huge shoutout to Elizabeth, Crystal and Traci...thank you. It's still early in my recovery, but I am REALLY liking what I am seeing and as healing continues to progress it's certain I will love the final results.
During the initial consultation Dr. Tholen answered all my questions and some questions I had not thought to ask. He and his staff were very reassuring from the beginning, explaining each step of the procedure and recovery. Any questions or concerns I had along the way Dr. Tholen and his staff were available to answer and made special arrangements for Rx's as well tips to make recovery easier.
I am now the very proud owner of the cutest belly button and tight abs...yay! Looking forward to the swelling going down over the coming weeks and months. Best decision ever to have the procedure done, absolutely no regrets, extremely pleased with work of Dr. Tholen and the support of his staff at Minneapolis Plastic Surgeons!
