Mary I had a TT, lipo, hernia removed and muscle tightened in march 5 2012. I’m 46 years old 4 children and I had the BEST surgeon in DC area Parva plastic surgery. My scar is dry, my drainage removed and very little pain. Choosing a good surgeon and having a healthy lifestyle are mayor factors. Please be very selective and DO research about your surgeon …make sure he/she are certified. Don’t try to go by how cheap they are. This is a very serious surgery and your life is in their hands. I choose TT because I wanted to feel better about myself, after 4 children and 4 miscarriages, exercise wouldn’t help. Good luck to everyone and remember to research first!
