    Default Tummy tuck

    Hi there,

    i am posting this and hoping not to get any judgment or nasty comments

    I am looking to travel down the path of a tummy tuck. My stomach is a mess with still some separation and dreaded lose skin. Even with toning and exercise, I am saggy, baggy elephant.

    I am am calling out to see if anyone recently has taken the plunge. If so, can you give me some info on costs, recovery and any recommendations of surgeons. I am in Brisbane too.

    Thanking you in advance

    No judgement here, if it's something that will make you feel better than I say go for it!! I don't want a tummy tuck but definitely want some boobs later on lol.

    No judgment, you just need to be really really sure you're finished having kids and be on some failsafe contraception. It can be really dangerous to get pregnant after a tummy tuck. I should add my info comes from Take 5 magazine....

    I went to Dr Luke stradwick on the GC in 2013. Cost was around $9000- recovery was hard but manageable. I went in for day surgery and stayed at my mums for the first 3 nights to be away from the kids. I bounced back pretty quickly, I'd say by 12 weeks later I was completely back to 'normal'. My scar is amazing! Barely noticeable. He's a lovely man, very straight to the point, he'll give you straight up answers. go for it!

    I'm booked in with Dr Kane. Did my research and very happy with consult and seen his work on another girls Instagram.

    Go for it is all I can say. I know someone that had one before children as she thought she'd never have any then 3 years later she did and her body hasn't recovered so just be sure you don't want any more children. I'll be having my boobs done as I know there will be nothing left after my next one stops feeding (I'm due in July). Good luck and best wishes with it all
