Album Description

I had a full tummy tuck with muscle repair to correct diastasis. After a whole year of considering a TT w/ MR, and doing research, I finally made an appointment for the consultation. After that it was full speed ahead! I just got sick and tired of feeling vulnerable from the gap in my rectus muscles, which was caused first by DD (2003), then exacerbated by DS (2005). See the pic of me while I was pregnant with DS! After 2 years, when my muscles still hadn't returned to normal position, I knew I had to do something. I didn't want to continue with the risks for hernias, intestinal issues, or back pain. Already, (TMI) I could feel stuff passing through my intestines when I put my hand on my stomach! A TT with MR was the perfect solution for me. In addition to tightening those muscles, I could also (1) get rid of the excess skin that I had to constantly tuck into my panties and pants (such a chore!), (2) get rid of some (but not all) of my stretch marks, and (3) finally have a belly button again! My pregnancies had turned my originally cute innie to a droopy hoodie. Getting a TT with MR has been one of the best things I've done for myself (the other being LASIK eye surgery). I can't wait to see my final results. It'll only get better from here!

I'm so glad you are on board and posting. Gosh, and an album to boot! You were adorable in that pregnancy pic, and you can soooo see why you are all stretched out. But you have a beautiful figure and you'll look amazing after your surgery. Good luck to you!
