How happy are you with the mini tummy tuck results?

Would you sincerely recommend it to other people? Was it worth the pain, time and money? I'd love to hear some thought on this.

I had a mini tummy tuck, and I'm thrilled with my results! I always had a pouch of fat and relaxed muscles in my lower abdomen that didn't respond to diet and exercise. I was really frustrated by my inability to tighten those muscles and get rid of that pouch of fat below my belly button. The mini tummy tuck requires a much smaller incision than a full tuck, and the recovery is a lot easier. The surgery itself was complex but so much more comfortable than a full tummy tuck would've been. My surgeon tightened my lower abdominal muscles and used liposuction to get rid of my loose skin.

I have two children, so I did ask some friends to watch them for a few days after my tummy tuck surgery, and my husband helped me during the first 24 hours. I was back to work in just a week. I was already close to my goal weight and in good health before the surgery, but my doctor gave me some pre-surgery exercises to do that are designed to help the recovery time. I'm really thrilled with my results, and I'm always getting compliments on how amazing I look.

I had a mini tummy tuck, and I would sincerely recommend it! I was very dissatisfied with my appearance before the operation because my stomach was saggy and loose with excess skin. I worked out regularly, and I enjoyed a moderate diet, but I couldn't get rid of that excess fat and saggy skin. I felt like the price was affordable because my surgeon offered payment plans that fit my budget. Post op, the recovery process went smoothly, and I was pleased with the healing process. My surgeon prepared me for the recovery process by having me do crunches and exercises to strengthen the area. I was happy with my healing process and was back to work after just one week. If you desire a flat stomach, I would recommend the mini tummy tuck.

I wanted to make sure I got the best results, so I made it a point to research cosmetic surgeons. The one I used for my mini tummy tuck procedure was a highly-experienced and reputable surgeon. I had two kids and didn't like the way my lower abdominal region looked. My lower abdominal skin was saggy and had a bit of excess fat. I went into the procedure with confidence and an understanding of what was going to occur. I won't see the best results after the procedure. I was swollen and bruised. It's a little off-putting to see my lower abdomen after the surgery. However, I did know that it takes 6-8 weeks to heal. I also know that there would be a scar. The scar did fade over time, but it's still there. Luckily, it's easy to hide when wearing a bikini. My mini tummy tuck removed the excess skin and fat. I can now walk around without feeling self-conscious about my body.

I had the mini tummy tuck and am very pleased with my results! I had lower belly fat that I couldn't seem to get rid of with exercise and diet alone. My surgeon recommended the mini tummy tuck and showed me before and after photos from other patients. I was impressed with the results that I saw in the pictures, but I was worried about the price and time off of work. The good news was that my surgeon offered payment plan options that fit my budget and I only needed one week off from work.

The mini tummy tuck has been a life-changing experience for me because it has boosted my self-esteem and confidence level. I've also gotten healthier in preparation for the surgery. For example, my surgeon encouraged me to eat healthy foods and to exercise before the surgery to maximize post-surgery recovery. The pre-surgery changes in my lifestyle gave me a renewed perspective on health and on the benefits it offers me. I suggest that you see a board-certified plastic surgeon to find out if plastic surgery will work for you.
