I had Gatric Bypass 9 years ago. I started out as 315lbs. I lost over 135, at the time and over the course of the past couple years have put a few pounds back on. This is due to my laziness, and eating the wrong foods :( But I am not perfect, and therefor have decided not to focus on the past but looks towards my future.
I have wanted to have this Tummy Tuck done for about 7 years. However there was ALWAYS some reason why I didn't.. not a good time, no money, etc... So after after all this time I am DONE waiting.
When I 1st talked to the hubby about it he was WAY AGAINST it. His comments ranged from "I love you just the way you are" to " this is alot of $".
As dearly as I love my husband I was not going to be wait any longer and decided to move forward.
My 1st consult went good, until they gave me estimates on the cost.. $6700 to remove the skin only and $11K to remove skin and do some lipo around my "love handle" area. Needless to say I knew there was no way in he*l I could afford that.
Then a friend of mind suggested I check into OSU residency cosmetic surgery center. This is where surgeons are finishing there schooling. They already have min. of 5 years of surgical experience and another 2 years cosmetic. However the are still in school and most are about to graduate. So I thought what the heck called and discussed approx. cost for what I wanted done and when I was quoted between $3800-4000 I set up my apt. right then and there.
My consult was on Feb 13-09. When I met with my potential surgeon, he explained the procedure (which I already knew about) and what my expectations should be, recovery time, etc...
Besides just the cost factor (which I could afford) I liked his honesty. So without further delay we scheduled my surgery for March 19.
After the 1st visit w/ the expensive doctor I agreed with the husband that we could just not afford that much $. However after getting the quote and info on the residency clinic I basically said "I am doing this". He is still trying to talk me out of it- SIGH but I will not budge!
So as I get closer to my date I am anxiously waiting. I have read and looked at just about every open profile on this site... Mostly I see results..I do not have false hopes that this will make me "skinny" only that I will not feel so hideous, with 2 front tires around my mid section.
I will post more pictures as time progresses.
