I have been wanting a tummy tuck for about 5 years (when I had my last child). It wasn’t a hard decision, but I just didn’t have the money.
I had my tummy tuck 3 weeks ago in Bolivia with MakeoverTravel and am SSSOOO happy I did. I’m still a little sore, but overall I feel great. I spent $2,700 for my TT, hotel stay for 10 days, transportation, bilingual assistant and all my pre operative blood tests. It’s very inexpensive (I spent $9.000 for my first TT!!)
I had my tubes pulled out a few weeks ago, it hurt for seconds and then I felt 100% better. I’m starting to stand up straight again, and feel I can get around a lot better. I had quit smoking a month before surgery,(great motivator to quit)and my healing is going very well. I can wait until I can exercise again, and get back to my routine.
The only con I had was having to depend on my husband who travelled with me to Bolivia to help me constantly for the first few days. I could get up and walk but now I came back home uffff !!!! My husband is my angel.. I have 3 children, laundry, pets, etc. and I couldn’t do anything. Once I started feeling better I felt much more confident in my decision in getting the tummy tuck.. I would do it all over again. I cant wait to see how it looks when the swelling goes down. It was a very nice experience to have a surgery abroad, MakeoverTravel’s staff is very professional and the medical team is excellent. I highly recommend them.
