Hi, I had a mini tummy tuck and a nose job on monday 4/30. I went to see my doctor today, 8 days into recovering. Im still very swollen in the tummy area and this compression garment sucks lol. My nose looks awesome tho. yay!! Anyone know of any way to help the puffiness go down a lil quicker.

How's your swelling. If from ribcage down id say full tt. I'm still swollen one month later with mini tt

Thanks! The swelling has gone down some. Do you know when I will be able to suck in or have control of my stomach muscles again? Also when can I tan outdoors again lol?

At 8 days, I don't know if there's much you can do besides try to take it easy and not eat a lot of salty food. I know that both of those things can exacerbate swelling. Hope this helps, at least a little. :0)
