3 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

2 1/2 year update!! I am still happy I did it, but I have been through some serious changes with my body - Davenport, IA

My big day is here. I went in at 6 45 am and they got started around 7 50 am. The dr was funny. He made me feel very comfortable. The nurses are amazing! I cannot stress that enough. Next thing I know I'm in recovery. Once again the nurses were great! I have a lot of fluid coming out of me. They said I might have been the most they have ever seen. But that's fine with my that just means he was making sure I would be comfortable afterwards. He did tumescent lipo and extended tummy tuck with muscle repair and upper back lipo and my abs and flanks. He took off 7 pounds of skin and four 32 ounce bags of fat. That is amazing to me! Needless to say I am a bit weak. I almost passed out in recoery when I went to pee because I was trying to do to much too soon. I've slowed down. They aveme some more anti nausea meds and I went home around 3 30 pm. But I came out of the O R around 12 30pm. I'm home now and the first few times I had to get up to go to the bathroom it was difficult. But I am draining a lot out of my lipo incision and my drains. About 90 cc on number 2 and about 50 ccs out of number 1. They pumped me with a lot of fluid. My boyfriend an kids have been a God send. From changing my pads for drainage to emptying my drains. He has even went to the store to buy more maxi pads or my incision. Now that's love lol :) he told me my back looks great! I haven't looked but I can feel the difference. My tummy is very swollen. But its going down by the moment. So I have faith it will look great. All in all I am very happy with my decision. He stapled my which was a little shocking but he had too cause he pulled me so tight. Anyway praise the lord and good luck to everyone else getting ready to go through this journey. Ill post pics tomorrow. I'm too hunched over to post tonight.

4 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Technical Answer Makes Sense - Davenport, IA

My doctor is skilled & was honest in telling me expectations prior except for estimating healing time. He has a great personality. I didn't realize the large number of stitches needed, over 40 stitches in the top of my head but absolutely no pain. He has been available for short follow ups but his staff never answer my emails and he doesn't want me to Skype or email. The makeup person was nice but only wants to sell products. Front desk are brisk and not friendly at all.

So far all of my interactions have been very positive. The doctor and his staff did a nice job of describing the different options and all of the pros and cons of each.
