    Tummy Tuck In 2 Days -Dec 17th

    my surgeon didn't mess with my port at All. I'm sure it was adjusted. But I know I still have some In There because I still have restriction. I know it's not as Much as it was . so when I go I'll have them take an xray. If the surgeon is familiar with wls patients which most are u shouldn't worry my dear. If this is what u want then u should. I'm glad u r researching and asking questions. It was the best decisions. I was losing weight but the TT just sealed it for me. I look 10 years younger . Ask me whatever u like . yayyy

    Tummy Tuck In 2 Days -Dec 17th

    I don't know about how weight gain works. But I do know and have heard that u will never get a tummy again. I love my results. I'm 3 weeks post Op and I have lost 35 lbs. I am still swollen and will continue to lose . they said it takes a full 6 months for swelling to go down. I'm actually making me an appt for a fill next month. I just want to make sire everything is still in tack and I think I need a fill anyway. I'm very happy about getting a tummy tuck.

    Tummy Tuck In 2 Days -Dec 17th

    I had To pay for mine out of my pocket. Best investment ever. Before surgery I was a 16/18. Now I'm in size 12 and I'm still really swollen Which means I could be smaller . Yayy. I can't wait.

    Tummy Tuck In 2 Days -Dec 17th

    I would definitely do it again in a heart beat. I love my results. I did everything at once. I feel amazing. Still sore and swollen but that goes away with time. No complaints Immediated went from a size 16 to size 12 . I had a large hanging tummy . I still can't believe it's gone.
  5. Good for u. New year! I was only married for 2 years but we were together for 4 and I ate all that pain away. I actually had the lap band and then it never stopped. I gained about 20 lbs after the lap band just because of my unhappiness. I left. Just had a TT And butt lift And fat transfer. I feel amazing. And to think of all of the names he used to call me and put me down. I'm finally taking care of myself .

    Tummy Tuck In 2 Days -Dec 17th

    I had Lipo, tummy tuck, back Lipo and butt fat transfer and it ran around $10K. It was worth every dime. The typical down time is like 10-14 days. But I took off till after the first of the year. More like any extra week. I'm recovering quite well. I was able to drive myself to the post Op appt on the 8th day. I was feeling pretting good. The first 4 days are the hardest.
  8. I totally agree with u. Once I stopped dealing with it with food, I had to face the music. Im seeing a therapist now for myself not My marriage. My marriage is over . my new life begins. My tummy tuck is tomorrow with Lipo of the back and fat transfer to butt...I'm so excited. The toxic things are gone. New life.

    Tummy Tuck In 2 Days -Dec 17th

    Thanks so much @deeadumble
  10. I was banded on July 5, 2013. I have lost a total of 81 LBS and I have more to go. The thing is that my hanging tummy won't go away no matter how much more weight I lose. So I'm getting a tummy tuck, Lipo in my back and fat transfer to butt. I feel like I'm getting the works. This will definitely help me get to my goal weight. I will post before, during and after pics. I'm putting a blog up specifically for my weight loss journey.

    Hating that I told my friends from college

    I had my lapband last year and I didn't tell anyone but only my closest family members. Not even my own brother or sister know I had it. People judge and hate. So I started like 3 months prior just eating and exercising. And I made sure everyone knew so that when I started losing it would just be natural. Just keep it to yourself. Now am having my tummy tuck but I dont mind people knowing about that.
  13. My situation just brought out the insecurity in my husband. When u start to feel good about yourself and confident there are things people can no longer do to you. You realize you matter and that you are beautiful. Sometimes 8 found that my husband didn't like me knowing I was worth more.
