My tummy tuck
Hi everyonei had tummy tuck after weight loss. Had my Surgery done by Ali Juma Jan 2010
Here is a few pictures
2 year after
wow thats pretty amazing
the thing i worry about is still having a little over hang over the scar or the scar not being symmetrical
rather than having a scar , if that makes sense
i dont mind the scar if its flat and neat
also if you gain weight after , do you get a paunch over the scar again
thanks for posting those
HI, as long as you don't suffer from kelidoscope (sp) scarring there is no reason why it won't be flat. And i've not know of any one having an over hang from a good surgeon.
The 2 year after picture was taken this jan and thats me 21lb heaver than when i had the op and i don't have an over hang, still lovely and flat.
They do advise that you don't gain more than 7lb, 14lb at a push or it can affect the results.
Which surgeons have you look at?
none yet , Ive been given a few names by different people , its will not be for at least 18 months I want to get to goal , hit the gym and see what I can do myself first , and if i end up with something that I can live with then I wont go down the surgery route , but it is very tempting , after 2 c sections and being 4 stone over weight for several years I cant see weight loss and exercise getting rid of my overhang
Ive seen results where the scar is a good couple of inches higher one side or the side view isnt flat , I dont think the scar itself would be a problem , my c section scars healed very flat
my belly looked very similar to yours actually but hangs over on the sides a bit too, Ive lost 2 stone now so its smaller but Im not kidding myself that it will ever ping back no matter how much I lose
how was it getting a new belly button lol , did they tell you how far they moved it up , and did they remove all your stretchmarks , thats a great bonus isnt it
I also had 2 sections, and i didn't like my tummy after the 1st one, and it ruled my life after my 2nd one, always thought about it, made me really un happy, even after losing 4st. Be we are all diff see how you feel, i had quite bad muscle damage too.
My scar is all faded now, can barely see it
get into my black linen trousers - Done
lose 1/2 stone - Done
get below 9 stone - Done 6.10.10
lose 1 stone - Done
Reach target - Done -1/2lb
New belly button was fine got rid of my whole where i used to haveit pierced.

Actually my stretchmarks dont really bother me much either , I suppose they end up much lower down
I think Ive probably got muscle damage too ,I could have lived with my belly after my first son , I was 20 when I had him and things returned almost to normal , although Ive never had a flat tummy, it was ok
But I was absolutely massive with my second boy and much older at 36 , I went 15 days over , Im only 5ft 2 and he was 10lb , I could feel myself being stretched and pulled in ways I didnt think possible lol it was horrible , I dont think 1000 sit ups a day will repair that
Im going to look into running , from what Ive read on various forums it seems to be what alot of people that have had a good non surgical result have done to get into shape , something to do with toning all the core muscles and more effective than crunches
I just need to shrink my 38E boobs down before I start taking up jogging though
You must be really pleased. Did you have muscle tightened as well? Or just the skin done?

Yeah I know Im stuck with it , Ive just got to try to make it look the best I can , then decide if I can live with it or not, my belly is getting smaller as I lose weight and its looking better , still at least 20lb to go though , wish Id taken some pictures now :-) would be good to be able to compare
See the more i lost the more mine hung over! hated it with a passion. So much more confidence with it gone x
I know what you mean , its smaller but more hanging ha ha
