      That SO stinks!!!  To get so close and not be able to go through with it!  Hopefully it will be worth the wait and you’ll find another surgeon that will be great and cost less!

      Wow how exciting !!  Congrats to you.  My insurance doesn't cover tummy tuck unless it hangs past your VA JJ  <_<. I was told this yesterday.

      The insurance approved the bottom part of my stomach I’m paying $6000 to get my tummy tuck but my doctor knocked of $2000 so all I’m paying is $4000 that’s not bad at all cause no insurance cover tummy tuck but it will cover the hanging bottom part of the stomach & it cover me thank god I’ll keep u guys posted  my surgery is September 6 fingers crossed
