No Lipo with my TT?

Hi - my TT is May 17th.  My doctor said that I didn't need lipo - just the TT.  I really don't want to go through all of this and wish I'd had a better result if I'd had lipo when it's all done.  Is it common to not have lipo with a TT?  Thanks!!  :)

my drains were at the ends of my incision. I'm 3 weeks post op....very swollen. mornings are good, but by now, i feel like the from willy wonka that needs to be "juiced." from what i hear the worst of the swelling is weeks 3-5...

OUCH! Lipo to the hoohoo! :) That's actually where my PS put the two drains. Ummm . . . I didn't get a choice - I just woke up and there they were! How far out are you from your TT? How is the swelling?

My PS didn't do lipo either. Well he did to my mons pubis, but not to flanks or anything. He said to wait 3-6 months for swelling to subside and see how everything looks.

My PS isn't doing lipo either and i wish he would. He said to wait the 3 months to heal from the TT then see how i felt. I agree with you in just wanting the best result and i hope i'm not disappointed and have to go under again.

Thanks for the reply. I'm one week PO today and not in much pain - just stiff really. My stomach is puffy (swollen) but the "hangover" is gone - thankfully! Hopefully the swelling will go down and the "no lipo" will have been the right decision. :) Did you do your TT?

I think that's not up to your PS but you, I had my TT with lipo to back, lower back and flank areas, according to my PS I needed it and in order for him to give me the heart shape ( that's how he calls it ,heart backward) I believe it all depends on your body shape and if you have love handles then you should do it...

I didn't get lipo with my tummy tuck and am very happy with the results. I think it depends on your body shape and fat distribution whether you need lipo to get the best results.
