Tamii is on a distinguished road

Default Considering a tummy tuck after major weight loss...

Hi! Im Tamii and I am 29, 5'2" and 126lbs. A little over a year ago I was 215lbs. I lost weight through diet and working out and have now been running 5-7 days a week for about 11 months. I have LOTS of excess skin on my abdomen and it is exaggerated by the stretch marks left from 3 pregnancies. I love my new found health and body, but am still embarrassed for my husband to even see my stomach. Not to mention bath suits or attempting to wear any top that is a thin knit. I would love love love to have it gone!

However, Im a mother of two and a private nanny for 3 more ranging in age from 7 months to 7 years, so Im super active in general in addition to my daily runs and workouts. I have a number of concerns with the risks of complications during and after surgery, how long the recovery period would be (this is one that makes me the most anxious!), and the financial cost. Also, the only other two surgeries I have had (impacted wisdom teeth and appendicitis) I was violently sick for a solid 24hrs after surgery from the anesthesia and usually throw up from anything stronger than a regular old ibuprofen.

Im thinking the negatives outweigh the positives in this case and that I might just have to deal with the extra skin for the next however many decades Im given , but Id love to hear anyone's thoughts who has had or is scheduled to have surgery. Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks!!

As you are having all these kind of complications, it is better to go for some non-surgical approaches. I guess the main problems is with the scars and lack of body shape. Why cant you try with Ultrashape treatment? It can surely treat your fat cells making it a slimmer silhouette. Rather than a normal cosmetic clinic, this treatment will need service from a advanced non-surgical aesthetic clinic.
