Joanne's Mommy Makeover
For mother of three Joanne, a tummy tuck was almost an afterthought. She had decided to have her breasts redone, given the effects three large children can have. Given how much Joanne exercises to keep in great shape, she felt that the combination of nursing children and aging had given her breasts an appearance that she wasn’t happy with.
Upon seeing her plastic surgeon, she suggested to Joanne that, while she was having her breasts redone, she have a tummy tuck as well. That procedure would help her overall appearance, and could be done at the same surgical appointment. The tummy tuck has given her more enthusiasm to keep up her workouts, and she is now even more determined to keep herself in shape.
The procedure itself is a difficult one, she explains, requiring 4 to 6 weeks of downtime following surgery, in order to allow your body to heal properly. In fact, Joanne recommends that if someone is considering a tummy tuck, they look at having anything else they might want done at the same time, given that for that post-op period, patients must take it easy and follow their doctor’s instructions.
For Joanne, she had no fear going into the procedure, as she felt confident in her board certified plastic surgeon. She is extremely happy with the results and highly recommends the procedure, for those considering a tummy tuck.
