Neil: My Tummy Tuck

Body_Mass-620x516Neil, did you say? That’s right – tummy tucks are for men too! Today, Neil’s going to tell us all about his experiences undergoing a tummy tuck with us at Secret Surgery – and as he’ll rightly tell you, tummy tucks are not just for girls!

Tell us how it all started. “I had weight loss surgery in April 2011.  Over the following 12 months I lost a substantial amount of weight – 9 stone and 7 pounds. I was delighted, never in my wildest dreams did I expect to lose so much weight. I went from an extremely unhealthy 54″ waist and having to buy all my clothes at Mr Big and Tall, to a very healthy 32″ waist and I could buy my clothes absolutely anywhere – that was fantastic.”

But there was a downside, wasn’t there? I was left with hanging skin on my stomach, no amount of exercise or dieting was going to shift it, so I came to the conclusion that I was going to need a tummy tuck.”

So how did you find us? “I started doing research and luckily for me I was discussing this with a friend of mine who had heard of a company called Secret Surgery. I joined the group on Facebook and read the reviews, all the reviews were brilliant and positive, there was not one bad review. I spoke to Angela the MD of Secret Surgery, we had a good long chat about what I wanted and what she could offer, at no time was I pressured into making a decision, it is a big step and one that needs to be carefully thought about and all options considered.”

What made up your mind? “There was one particular photograph posted by a client showing the outcome of her tummy tuck and I thought, yes, that is exactly what I want. I then made my booking and paid my deposit.”

And what happened next? “From there Angela took over everything, she arranged the whole trip from start to finish, I literally had nothing to do whatsoever other than pack and catch the plane. Once I landed in Wroclaw I was met by the very beautiful Aga, she took me straight to the hospital where I met Dr. W, I have to say Dr. W is a wonderful, kind, thoughtful gentleman, with a sense of humour, and as I later found out a very skilled surgeon. We discussed what I wanted to achieve through the tummy tuck and the best way to achieve those results.”

And, what everyone wants to know… what about the tummy tuck itself? “I was taken to my hospital room, the hospital was modern, up to date, very very clean, and all the staff friendly and professional. The following day I had my tummy tuck, I was kept in a recovery room for the 1st night and then moved back to my room, at all times I was very well looked after by all concerned. The very first day I was moved back to my room I felt well enough to have walk around the hospital grounds, I was never going to win an 100 metre sprint but I walked around for about an hour. The following day I was taken to my apartment to continue my recovery. The apartment was great, modern, spacious and had all mod cons.”And post-op? “I continued to make a speedy recovery and was well enough to go out sightseeing everyday. While I was there the support was 2nd to none, Angela was always there for me 24 hours a day, as was Aga and all the staff involved. What was also a fantastic and welcome surprise to me, was the support I received from the Secret Surgery group on Facebook, I have to say they made my journey much easier with all the positive, encouraging and humorous comments I received and never at any time did I feel I was alone. It is early days but my tummy tuck is looking brilliant, I am truly delighted.”

Any last words? “I would like to say a very heartfelt thank you to you all, Angela, Aga, Dr. W, Jack, all the staff at the hospital and last but certainly not least the Secret Surgery group on Facebook.”
