  • I never had a tummy tuck but damn if I dont want one. I would be so cute if my tummy was gone...I have been trying to get rid of it for 7 years now. Lol. I'm ready for one myself. I'm curious as well.

  • I have had a TT. I love it. Recovery was hard. It took me a few weeks before I could walk straight. You're a hunchback for awhile. Then there is swelling that can last for a year. It is very frustrating. It's a roller coaster ride of emotions. If you work I think you need at least three weeks to recoop. And if you have kids you need help for at least a week...I'd suggest longer. Generally, plastic surgeons ask you not to lift for 6 weeks. Go to this website: www.makemeheal.com It has the best TT forum. Search through the archives and you'll find answers to most of your questions. I didn't need lipo, but most ladies love it. Although, healing from lipo is painful.

  • i would love to have a tummy tuck, but i am not up for all that pain. I have heard it is horribly painful. i don't know about the mini tuck, but i think i'm going to check into that.
