Why did you want a tummy tuck?

I had been so unhappy with my disfigured stomach for nearly 17 years and in my eyes I felt disfigured and disgusting. I had a lot of lose skin from 3 big babies and I had an overhang pouch that hung over my c section scar .

I knew I couldn’t live with it for all my life, so after a holiday in Spain last summer and realising I didn’t have the confidence to even walk to the pool without having a towel wrapped around my torso, I knew I had to finally sort it out .

Why do you think you didn’t have the procedure sooner?

It was like a light bulb going off in my head and it was time to do something about it now. I’ve had my children and I’m now in my 40’s so it was now of never really !!!

How did you pay for the procedure?

I saved the deposit myself and I got a very good loan on low interest for the rest. I had heard amazing things about Glow by MYA so when I looked into them as a company, I was so impressed with their 5 star reviews and their patient stories so I knew they were the cosmetic company for me.

How were your consultations with Glow by MYA?

My first consultation was really friendly and professional and they put me at ease straight away. The whole team at Glow by MYA are so friendly and lovely, it has such a good atmosphere about it. I chose my surgeon as I heard he was one of the best and I was not disappointed. He was very straight down the line and honest, which is what you want from your surgeon. He’s professional and extremely good at what he does hence his amazing reputation

Joleen's Surgical Story

How was your recovery?

I was nervous on the day, scared, excited – everything really but before I knew it it was over and I woke up . The pain wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be on day one actually and I was up eating and drinking and talking within hours. The next 2 weeks were hard, tummy tuck and lipo its a major operation. But as everyday passed, I got better and stronger. Within 4 weeks I was out with my friends, having dinner feeling and like a new woman. I needed a lot of support though after the surgery as I have 3 children so you have to be prepared for it and ask for help as you will need it.

What advice would you give to someone considering a tummy tuck?

If anyone is thinking of having this done, I would say stop thinking and do!!! It’s the best decision I’ve ever made for myself and I have no regrets at all. Glow by MYA are also on the end of the phone whenever I want or need them and I see my surgeon when I need to as well. Great aftercare through out the whole journey makes me so happy I chose Glow.
