I'm 5 ft 7 " 140 lbs ..I had a tia in 2012 smoked a pack of cigarettes a day work for busy law firm not to mention 7 children.I changed my lifestyle quit smoking, gym 5 days a week" does wonders for my stress" !!!! and working part time.... I've always take care of every body else now it's my turn!! World very hard I just can't loose the belly. Dr. Suggested tummy tuck but I wanted to try liposuction first. I've been on this site like it's my job!!!!!
OK so I spoke to my dr. And he said I would be much happier with mini tummy tuck and lipo....I decided to go for it....I'm scared of being put under but.....I know I'm in good hands ;)
