Spent: $4,500 in Bellevue, WA
Pros: I needed a tummy tuck after having children, but hated the thought of the scar from hip bone to hip bone. I always carried extra weight in my midsection and flanks making me feel unfeminine and disproportionate. I'm not heavy, but wanted to be able to wear something other than gunny sacks for blouses. It's been exactly one month and I actually have a WAIST. I still have a lot of swelling, but I know this will go away in the next few months.
Cons: It is more painful than they make it out to be during and after the surgery. There is NO way I could be comfortable with the amount of pain meds that they gave me. Luckily, I had extra Vicodin from a previous injury. The compression garment was GOD AWFUL. I ended up purchasing various others NOT through the doctor's office to rotate through.
