I don’t see many posts on here from ladies who have had a tummy tuck, so I thought I would share my experience in the hope it might help someone else.
I had a Tummy Tuck with Muscle Repair and a Breast Enlargement in one combined operation. Gary Traynor was my surgeon, and I know everyone says it, but I would recommend him 100%, especially for such a big operation. I know he’s one of the best surgeons in the North West and is well known for his amazing boob jobs, but I can honestly say he did everything he said he would.
I needed a tummy tuck due to giving birth to a 10lb baby in 2005 and then a 9lb baby in 2006! I didn’t ‘need’ a breast enlargement as such, but due to pregnancy etc I was left with an empty 34B cup, so decided to go for the ‘Mummy Makeover’ as it’s sometimes called.
I’m 11 days post-op today. I had 400cc over the muscle, high profile implants.
I am healing well, but I won’t lie, the first 7 days were really really hard, but I’m having better days now.
If anyone is having a tummy tuck, please feel free to add me as a friend, I have before and after photos on my profile.
Good luck – pain is temporary, results are forever!
Hey Zoe I hope you don’t mind the add im due a TT and BA on July 8th with Dr Marcellino
Hello ladies, I hope you don’t mind me adding you both. I’m having a tummy tuck with Mr Marcellino on the 3rd August x
Zoe it looks like you are going to have fantastic results! How are you finding the TT recovery? X
Hi Nina, the first 7 days were really tough, but I’m slowly feeling more human, I’m still walking hunched over a bit and my tummy muscles burn in the evening a little. I’m back to work on Monday, I’m dreading it!
If there’s one piece of advice I would give to any ladies having a TT is to have somebody supportive with you for at least 5 days, I would not have managed without my other half, and I didn’t even have the children, they were at their Dad’s until day 9.
oh wow, that’s good to know that other women want to do the same as me:) @zoej , hope your recovery is going well. I had mine with dr.Singh as doing great. Almost a year post op, and had a little bump in the road (under the muscle BA had to be re-done for overs), but it’s the best thing i’ve done. Tomorrow i’m going for steroid injections in the TT scars to flatten them a bit. Hope you don’t mind the add?
@ncl36 It’s your turn soon;) I bet you can’t wait! I’ll still be on holiday then, but I will think of you, wishing you best of luck:)
@YANA yes the countdown is on for my TT….52 days!! I can’t wait for it to be over haha. Hope you have a lovely holiday! Where are you going? xx
@ncl36 Tunisia 😉 my app says 36 days to go. I had some more steroid injections in my TT scar, as in the ends towards the hips the scar is more raised. He also said to keep silicone strips on and he advised on one piece swim suit as the scars are still fresh (pink). Everywhere I read they say if u sunbathe the pink scars they go dark Permanently!! I so wish I can tan all over but will have to protect the scars (navel one too).
Hi Zoe I requested add as I’m looking at TT would love to see pics
Hi hun im also thinking of doing combined tummy tuck and BA but im worried about the pain. it would be good to see before after pics. My biggest hate is all my stretch marks and how awful they look when i lean over x
I am booked for a TT procedure with the hospital group Dr Hassan Suliaman in October. Does anybody have any feedback on him and the aftercare?
Hi Ladies, went to mya yesterday for initial consultation considering tummy tuck and BA. Was recommended to Dr Fiumara. Any info would be so helpful thank you x
Hi Zoe, hope you don’t mind me adding you I’m going in for a TT on the 29th and am really nervous, hope you’re recovering well xx
@Zoe hi how did you cope with having your tummy tuck and breast augmentation with the children how old where they when you had the surgery?
