I do definitely feel different. I will say in my running I don’t feel my stomach flapping around like it used to and the very first time I ran it was really different ’cause I was like, “Wow, I’m not used to my stomach being so tight and flat.” I don’t know, I’m just happier.
My name is Monica Nicole and I had the Mommy Makeover. My Doctor was S. Larry Schlesinger, MD, FACS and I had my procedure done at the Mommy Makeover Center.
The reason why I wanted to get it done is because I workout a lot. I lift weights and run and there was just a certain part of my stomach where the fat just wouldn’t go away. And I told my husband, I was like, “I really want to get a tummy tuck done.” So we just, I decided to do it while we were here in Hawaii.
I was self conscious, very. It really bothered me. I wasn’t able to wear a bikini even though my husband told me I looked great in one it was just I didn’t like the way I looked at the time. And it made me almost very depressed.
I felt when I came in for the consultation he made me feel very comfortable. My husband as well felt comfortable that he would keep me overnight and not release me the same day as my surgery.
I didn’t feel any pain. I thought I would but I didn’t. Any time I had an issue and my husband would text him he wouldn’t text him back, he would call him back. Like immediately and tell him, “OK, this is normal. Don’t worry about it.” And I think that’s why my husband was so impressed with him was because he always called back and he always called back within a few minutes of my husband sending him the text.
I have my self confidence is boosted. I don’t feel as tired as I used to. I used to feel tired a lot and I don’t know if that was just because I was overweight to begin with. But, I mean I feel much better now about myself. I just can’t get over how my stomach looks, so. It’s awesome.
I got great care, I mean even the night nurse. Everybody who was in the process of me having the surgery. I mean, it was great. The care was awesome.
