Hi. Fleur de lis with liposuction and hip contouring scheduled for 3 weeks from now. Please help I am in desperate need of any info or pictures. I am starting to get really nervous. I have lost over 200 lbs. due to the placement of a lap band in 2007, so I have about 20lbs of excess skin and fat deposits hanging off. I refer to it as my spare tire, it literally goes all around my body.

Sorry, but all the information that I have was on the Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck web page that you visited.

I looked though my old emails to try to find the email address of the man who had the Fleur de lis tummy tuck to see if he would be interested in answering any questions that you may have, but I was unable to retrieve it.

The weeks before surgery are the most nerve racking weeks. Your mind keeps focusing on things like “will the surgery go well, will there be much pain, did I choose the right doctor and how will the recovery go?”.

If you have done a good job in choosing your doctor then looking at more graphic pictures of fleur de list tummy tucks may feed your nervousness instead of easing it. Keeping busy and doing activities should help keep your mind off of it and make the time fly faster.

Just think what it will be like without all that extra skin hanging around. You’re going to feel “free”.

If you have any general questions regarding tummy tuck surgeries (from the patients point of view) I’ll be glad to try to answer them if I can.

Good luck,
