Are there any women out there who have had this done in this country...or abroad??
There are so many sites out there when you type the above into a search engine and they all have testamonials but are they actually honest and real???
What price did you pay?
Was it worth the money?

jeeze thats a biggy, have you been to your gp to start? I think you really, really need to be careful on this one, i know someone who had a tummy tuck and it left her in more of a mess than she strated with, so please be real careful

Too much of a risk - if you want to feel better do some excercises and watch what you eat. Take time to make your decision on this issue.

I know, I know:roll:
Thing is, it's awful being 'relatively' slim with the typical saggy tum from a pregnancy.
It's not something I have just come up with, it's something that really gets me down big time and has done for years.
No amount of 'you look fine' or 'it's hardly noticeable' is going to work!
The reason i'm asking is because of the horror stories.Wonder if there are any happy endings:oops:

Do some exercise!!!!

Is that apart from going to the gym twice a week, spinning once a week and running about 12 miles a week????

I watch Extreme Makeover and when a woman was revisited (well, one that had had a tummy tuck) she said it was really hard work staying in shape and she wished she'd lost the weight on her own. Mind you, if I had the money, I'd make mine disappear too.

of course there are going to be some happy endings, sadly you will not know the end till its to late to turn the clock back, i have a friend i have known for 25 years, she had a pregnancy that really left her stomach in a mess, and she is slim always has been, but her stomach is still a mess to this day, and she contemplates a tummy tuck every now and again, although i think she has reached an age now where she will never get it done, although i dont know how you feel i did and do know how she felt, good luck in whatever you decide


P.s Karen please ignore the comments about your weight, people think tummy tucks are for fat people, not those left with skin that they can never do anything about

You never mentioned that

I'm prepared to do the hard work as i'm already doing it. I love that programme! If only eh, if only

Thank you Sassie x

karen i hope u didnt think i was telling YOU to go gym... no not at all!! i was saying i was in the same pplace after DS2... felt super depressed and was looking up these companies....

but I hit gym.... and even though weight loss at plateau... its a nice break.

i would never ever tell anyone to go to the gym or give out horrid comments like that. hun i apologise if u think i was being out of order. i honeslty wasn't!
#17
Faiza1, don't worry I hadn't taken offence at your comments at all. I could see you were empathising.
It just makes me laugh really when some one suggests something like "do some exercise" as if NO, really, i'd never thought of that!
Also, comments can easily be misread on here so I take it all with a pinch of salt......which of course leads to bloating!!!:?
#18
If you are serious about getting this done, go to your doctor and ask him/her to refer you to a reputable plastic surgeon.
I'm sure you are old enough to know what you are doing, just be very careful.
GOOD LUCK. :)

Most of you are wrong and just assume people who are fat and dont exercise want to take the 'easy' option of a tummy tuck but this is not the case. You need to lose the weight before even considering a tummy tuck this is because with a tummy tuck you can only go so far up the stomach to take away 'fat' and therefore if you were already fat you would look very silly after just a tummy tuck. I was overweight and lost a lot of it through good diet and exercise and went to see my doctor about the sagging skin that was left and was told that there is only so much of the skin that would 'go back' and the rest would always be there unless I had a tummy tuck - he then told me that he could arrange for it to be done within 2 weeks - I am seriously considering it and will keep looking at websites for information but until I speak to someone who can recommend a surgeon because of their own experience there is no way I will get it done - and I spoke to my doctor over a year ago - it is not something anyone goes into lightly (no pun intended) but I really do think that you should only get it done after speaking to someone who has had it done and can be totally honest with what they tell you - good luck with your quest
#20
sn0ttyange31 - i really hope you find someone to speak to about this as I so understand where you are at. I have always struggled with my weight and have to work so dam hard to keep at the size I am.
If you find anybody, let me know. Good luck x

Thanks Sophie x

Two words.....................Denise Hendry.

If you do not know,the wife of ex footballer Colin Hendry nearly died after having liposuction/tummy tuck.If I remember correctly,her bowel was ruptured and she got septacaemia(sp?) and was in a coma for a while.I also understand that she still suffers certain after effects to this day(it was about 6 years ago she had it done)

With any operation there are risks,it is up to you if you feel these risks are worth it.

I've always had a 'jelly belly',though I am considered slim by most......sometimes it's just the way we're made.

God that's awful!!!!!

my friend had always been on the larger size, then she really worked hard and lost the weight, she also kept this weight off and finally got the ok for a tummy tuck due to the skin hanging, she was a size 8/10 when she went in, she came out and hoped things would improve, she had bad care (at stoke hospital) and went from a size 8/10 and now a 14, she has had nothing but problems since having it done, and they just say maybe you where expecting too much, so she went in a sixe8/10 with saggy skin and came out a 14 with a massive scar, skin doesnt look any better and a year later still having problems, she says she dearly wishes shed left well alone, i know its only one story but like i said you will only know what you have been left with once its done

Maybe your doing a wrong type of exercise that isnt working the fat on your stomach?

Why not hire a professional trainer for 2 weeks as a trial and see what professional advice they offer e.g. what exercises to do, how to do it properly, and what to eat etc. Plus this will be alot cheaper than getting a "tummy tuck". And in the end even if it doesnt work atleast you've improved your health and you will not have that thought in the back of your mind that you should have tried something else other than tummy tuck.

maybe you could have read the thread before responding, then at least you wouldnt have that thought of am i sure i have given the right advice - lol
#27
Thanks for everyone's comments. :)
I understand how helpful people are trying to be but I was asking the question of "has anybody had this done" because I HAVE tried everything else. I am very knowledgable in most area's of aerobic and anaerobic exercises. I have been doing it for long enough.

Last year I had a personal trainer on a three week basis (junior Mr Universe) and I paid £25 an hour for his wisdom. I have recently taken up running and can get to 4.4 miles without stopping now. When I go in the gym I do 600 cals minimum. I also know the importance of improving the core muscles.

Hopefully, somebody who has actually had this done could respond.There must be someone out there! :?

An aquaintance of mine spent £10K on a fully private stomach banding operation. Lost 4 stone within a couple of months but now weight loss has stopped, and she is still over 20 stone I think!!!!!

Yeh I thiink about this tummy tuck thing all the time,but I doubt I'd ever have it done.
I'm not exactly fat but I suppose very curvy in a lot of places so I do look in proportion.I can wear a skirt low down but lower down I guess its like a spare tyre lol.It just one of those things of having children,there always going be a bit extra thats not going ping into place like loosish skin.
As I see it at moment,well there more disadvantages of having it done than just leaving things as it is.
