Hi Ladies,

I am looking for someone in their 50’s, 60, or 70’s who would be willing to speak with our PR team today. We are looking for people who would talk about the reasons why you invested your savings/money on yourself. I have a $25.00 gift card for the first person to respond.

I would really appreciate any help you could provide.

I am 61, and had my TT 8/8 and doing well. As the PS told me he wouldn't do any lipo in the TT area during the procedure. On 2/4 I am going for lipo of the upper ab area. My result has been amazing but Im still holding fat there. ByeBye Fat.

I am 10 weeks PO. My incision opened up at a few places and I kept complaining of feeling like I was going to explode from the fullness feeling. I have gone to three drs. and 2 catscan, 2 ER trips and yesterday they finally did a culture of my belly button which is still open, never closed after surgery. I am on my third antibiotic and I'm hoping that I will finally heal so this swell hell will go down. I love my results even thru all of this. My scar is thicker where it opened up but with massage and silicone gel with time I am sure it will go down. On my posts you can see where I started and where I was at 6 weeks before "all hell broke loose". I knew there could be complications just never thought it would be me but it was. I have always been positive through the red open incision, scars, open bellybutton, cellulitis, pain, swelling, antibiotics and all the dr. visits. It took a lot of my persistence on saying there was something wrong till they found the cellulitis so red thick areas on my scar are really nothing. God only gives us what we can handle and I am still so thankful that I did this for myself and I think I look wonderful. Having a caring, supportive, loving husband always helps too. Wish all of you all the best and speedy recovery. God Bless you all and thank God for t this forum.

did anyone else get scabbing around their tummy tuck incision?

I have had pussing, scabbing and slight bleeding in several spots. My PS says it is prob stitches but I haven't seen any, he said put warm compresses on them and I do and they seem to get better but still really red and thick areas -wish it would stop so I can continue my scar therapy and hoping the redness is not making my scar permanently thicker. This just started around 10 weeks

I am 12 days post op from TT. I am freaked out about necrosis. Can anyone tell me if my incision looks like I should be worried? I dont know how to post the pic but will send via email if needed

If you are worried about ANYTHING- call your PS. Call the answering service and leave a message if necessary. Do not take chances with your health.

Don't do what I did, I wore vs pink yoga pants. They did not get passed my knees! Between the swelling, padding and drains..... What was I thinking? My boyfriend is a dr at the hospital, and ran to get me disposable scrub pants! I usually would be embarrassed but I was wheeled out in wheelchair. At that point, who cared!

What did you ladies wear to the hospital the day of surg? Would loose pants or a sun dress be better in you opinions?

Wear a sleep bra and loose sweats.  You will be grateful that you have the sleep bra for your recovery.

I have not had my surgery, but I have a full button down dress that I plan to wear. From what I have read, it will be tough to put your arms up to pull anything over your head.

The nurse will help you get dressed.  You will probably see your doc the next day and they will be messing around with the cg etc.  I found it easy to not have to get undressed and that is why I wore sweats.

I wore a pair of pajamas...they are really soft and it has a matching robe. That way once I got home I could just get comfortable and rest.

I wore a zip up terry cloth bathing suit cover up. It was great soft and nothing to pull up or down and when I got home I lived in it the first week (washing it of course)

Great question. With swelling I'm reading about do I go a size up in my clothes ?
  • Reply
Had TT on 8/8 and I just wore lose clothing after. You should be fine in your old clothes if you get dressed. You may notice that as swell hell goes away that your pants will be bigger. Your contour changes too. Good Luck!

Thanks. I dont know about anyone else but my closet has a variety of sizes. LOL

I'm 8 days post op today.  My Dr left the drain in until Monday - grrr.  The drainage is just yellow now.  My cg is really annoying and the back pain severe but I'm not taking any meds.  I've had a few uncomfortable BMs and then a couple easier ones. . . accidentally drank a cream soda for nausea yesterday and was full of unpleasant gas!!! lol.  My tummy looks good now (before and afters are in my profile under my review of Smart Lipo) but I see many irregularities - I had done this TT to deal with deformities left by Smart Lipo . . . so I am now panicking that my tummy will not be smooth - perhaps it's just too early to tell.  I'm not depressed but am wondering if this will really be worth the big scar at the end of the day.   Anyone else having these issues?
