Tummy Tuck...coming soon to a tummy near you!



Recommended Posts

Courtesy of BitCoin spiking up in price, I may be having my Tummy Tuck sooner, rather than later. It's not covered by insurance, so I'll have to pay out of pocket. Although I have loose skin everywhere, it only bothers me in two places: my tummy and under my chin. The tummy because it makes me look pregnant, LOL. I'm small everywhere but there. And the chin because it ages me.

So I've scheduled a couple of consultations with local surgeons and we'll see what happens!

Please let us know how it goes. I am very curious about this Tummy Tuck procedure. I have the same things as you. Belly sticks out but I am small everywhere else. I never thought about the chin area but it is a problem.

So I had my first consult today.

The good news: the price the surgeon quoted was very doable. If other docs are in line with that, I should be able to do this.

The bad news: I didn't like the surgeon. He was condescending in answering my questions and kind of acted like I was dumb for asking. So the search will continue.

But at least it looks like I can afford this!

My next consult is Thursday.

Sorry that the surgeon was a jerk. Hopefully the next one has a much better bedside manner!!

So I had my 2nd consult today and it was like night and day! This surgeon was thorough, he asked for my hematologist's number so he can consult with her, he asked a lot about what's happened since my bariatric surgery, he wanted to know about all my previous surgeries and he answered all my questions without the slightest impatience. Most of all, he treated me like a fellow human being and expressed genuine interest in my well being.

The price he quoted me is a little higher than the other guy, but still doable and I can already see that he's worth it. It's also all-inclusive of everything besides prescription meds.

Since I'm new on my job, I'm going to wait a bit and maybe plan to have surgery in July or August. But God willing, it looks like this is happening! 😀

Is it much higher in price? Is the price, what you thought it would be for all these quotes? I have no idea how much it will cost. Is there anyway you could let me know a ballpark figure? Just want to see if it will be doable, since insurance will not cover it. Thanks

Yay!

do you have more consults lined up? My insignificant suggestion would be to get 1 or 2 more since the two you already had where on opposite ends.

Also, another suggestion would be to look into the type of incision each doc would employ. I had a straight line one done and while it's hidden just fine in regular bikini bottom, the ends of the incision can be seen if I wear a high cut one. If the leg-lengthening bikini bottom is in your future, you may want to look into the v-incision...i've seen others who had this type and would have gotten it myself, had I known it existed.

Seriously excited for you! (I love all things PS, lol).

I did book three consults because I do want to understand my options with regard to technique, price, after-care, etc. I'm not likely to ever wear a bikini, so that won't be an issue. I'll be ecstatic just to be able to wear a regular one-piece with no skirt attached! 😂 I'm pretty excited too, I'm pretty sure the few months I'm waiting will fly by!
