Does a TT with no muscle repair have an easier recovery and less swelling compared to a traditional TT?

So true, I had the muscle repair under my breasts also (3 weeks ago), and that seems to be the major area of pain, bending over, sitting up, etc. I know I will love the results once I feel better.

According to doctors, a proper tummy tuck includes muscle repair. Otherwise the surgeon is just basically trimming skin. That said, I think muscle repair is the biggest reason why tummy tucks are so painful.
