After I had my baby I worked hard and lost 9 stone with diet and walking for exercise. After reaching my goal weight I joined the gym. My arms and legs are very toned. The continued to tone up with weight lifting and squats, but nothing I did would improve my tummy. I needed an extended TT to ensure it handled my hips area too.

My doctor was very particular with his lines. He drew the on with precision and expressed an urge to get my scar symmetrical for me. He recommended extending my TT to handle my hips, despite me not being to worried, and the results are excellent. I'm so glad I let him to an extended TT. I was worried about having bulges on my hips or the dreaded dog ear. He took care of it perfectly. Post surgery he wasn't as present as some are, but the nursing team were fantastic. He saw me twice post surgery. 1st time he day after and 2nd time be day before I went home.

10 Days Post op

I am healing well. I've seen my surgeon for a check up. He's happy with everything. My tummy is still swollen around the lower abdomen predominantly, and I have started to becoming itchy on my incision lines. Just signs of my body healing.

I'm still over the moon with my results.

2 weeks PO update

Swelling has drastically reduced. I'm now taking Bromelain which may have contributed to reduced swelling. I am healing well. My next check up is at 3 weeks PO when my glue tape will come off.
