I had been debating having a tummy tuck for years now. Each time I went in to see a plastic surgeon the cost, and time to heal was discouraging. Not to mention friends and family that would talk me outof it saying I didnt need it, I just needed to work out, do more ab work, do more weights, run, walk.

I took everyone elses advice and didnt consider my own feelings. I went to visit my PS 3 weeks prior to my surgery. I didnt tell anyone aside from my husband and my mom because they are the ones that would be taking care of me.

Yesterday I had 1 drain removed and got to see my cute belly button for the 1st time...love it!!! Doc says I am doing great. I just have to monitor my output on drain and hopefully remove it on Monday. I am having a bit of mixed emotions...every morning I wake up full of energy and ready to do everything I can while I feel that way..but I pay for it at night. My back is killing me by the end of the day. I am taking Ibuprofen and nothing else.

Today its been 2 weeks since my TT. I finally had the 2nd drain removed, I feel much better. I also made sure with my doc that I was using the binder the right way. He suggested I get a new one because the one I have is too big :) ...that made me very happy. Feeling ok at this point. Last night was the first nite I took nothing to sleep. I had very little sleep, I felt like it was day 2 after surgery. My garment felt so tight. I am a little worried since I'm going back to work on Monday so I am hoping I'll feel much better.

It has been a great 4 months. I am very happy to have made the decision. All the $$ I spent is so worth it. So was the pain. I finally went shopping for smaller clothes and wore a 2 piece swimsuit for the 1st time in 20 years :).....Tears of Joy!!!

I am very happy with my results. I shopped for a new wardrobe 4 sizes smaller than before :) Having a TT has totally changed my lifestyle for the better. I've got my family eating healthy and exercising. I'm glad I chose to do this for me!

Almost 4 years since my TT

Still after 4 years I am so happy I made the decision to have a TT. If you are considering having one done DO NOT expect that a TT is the end to your workouts, and dieting. In fact, having a TT is truly a life style change. I workout more, watch portions, and calories. Yes you do see results, but to maintain those results, you must change your exercise routines and eating habits. I am more than happy to share my journey post TT. Best of luck to you all!

San Antonio Plastic Surgeon

He took so much time to discuss the procedure. He was so down to earth completley different from other PS I had consulted with. He had great bedside manner.
