Hello everyone. My name is Gabby. I am 25 years young with a beautiful 1 year old daughter. I have been more than blessed with her, but as most of you know, child bearing can definately take a toll on your body. I am 5'1 & 120 lbs. I was left with stretch marks on my tummy. They arent horrible, but they are there. As far as more children go, who knows what the future will bring. As of now, I definately dont desire anymore, but that may change down the road. I dont want to put so much money into something that will ultimately need to be redone or make my stomach look even worse after another baby. I have discussed this with my doctor and he says that he feels that since I am unsure about future children, he would prefer that I did not get a mini (he said I didnt need a full tummy tuck) He did also explain that I may have a little bit of excess skin due to the stretch marks. I am ok with that as long as it doesnt look like a deflated balloon....Has anyone else had similar concerns???? Has anyone who has had the procedure opt out on tummy tuck even with stretch marks. Pictures would be greeattttly appreciated. Thank you all for sharing your stories - its great inspiration!

P.S. I will finish updating more body pics when Im not at work. HAHA

Thanks for your response. I have decided to put the mini tt on hold until I am positive no more babies. My doc said that if I do decide to have a baby after a mini tt, it may make my stomach even worse, so I will go with doctors orders. Uggghhh I am starting to get the pre-surg jitters now.

Hello beautiful ladies - hope all is well. So Feb 21st was procedure day. Everything went great up until the time I woke up from surgery. Haha. I would say that was the worst part (right after surgery - between anestestia wearing off and first pain pill). I must say that I was in pretty horriffic pain for the first few hours after surgery, but once the medication kicked in, it was all gravy. I doubled up on the medication the first two days, but after that, the pain was much more tolerable. I had a total of 1300 cc's of fat taken from my abdomen, flanks, and lower back. I had 650 cc's of fat put into one cheek and 480 injected into the other. I had uneven booty cheeks - hehe...(I injured my leg a few years ago, so I was compensating weight on one side more than the other.) It is amazing how these doctors work wonders on the body. I now have an hourglass shape and nice full booty. It isnt nicki-minaj big, but perfect for my size. The amount of confidence that comes after makes it all worth it! I am exactly two weeks post-op and feel about 90% back to normal. I am still swollen especially in back area and driving is a pain in the butt (literally). Question for those who have had the procedure. I have some swelling and lipo bumps on tummy from liposuction. Did massages help? And about how long before they subside?
