Does this look ok? I regret getting my tummy tuck

Hello, A week ago I decided to go get BL with BA and Skin only tummy tuck to fix my body issues after 80 lb weight loss 9 years ago... I'm very pleases with my BL but my tummy look so strange and weird.. I know its too early to judge but I feel I got a very sloppy job there.. uneven cut and dog ear and fat hanging on both ends.. My surgeon recommended skin only since I didn't have children yet..  My second issue is I'm getting married in 2 month and terrified that my tummy tuck won't be healed by then.. My surgeon minimized the TT procedure since it was skin only with no muscle repair.. I'm scared I'm totally ruined from enjoying my wedding and my planned honey moon.. Any thoughts??? Thank you

I look awful at first and had little dog ears, too. Once the swelling goes down it will look lots better. I wouldn't even BEGIN to judge for 6 weeks. I think it's going to look great!

Hello ..you are still swollen and yoo don't look bad for just skin tuck which I have not heard of (maybe mini tt) I would say fo rear dogs they don't look that bad but if you are concern then your PS should be able to fix them eventually once the entire swelling has gone down, my best advise for you to be ready for your wedding is to rest a lot that's the key to a success recovery don't over do house chores, listen to your body when it's time to stop even walking then stop and take a break, right now you are going thru a stage in the healing process wheere you get depress and regrets regarding your decision to have the surgery is ok to feel that way but it will get better just hang in there....REST! REST!! :)

If you look at my review, you sill see a pic if me 8 days po which looks gruesome with all the swelling and quilted looking skin. I also have one from 6 weeks po, which was two weeks ago for me. Look at how much better it looks. It have still improved since then, so take heart, you will prolly look a lot better for you wedding and honeymoon. However, you will prolly still not be back at 100% if you had muscle repair, cause I still have to watch it and wear ab support when walking a lot or working out. I usually wear that Cupid garment I posted a pic of. It slips on under my shirts. I still wear the binder a little too.

Your body just went through a traumatic surgery and it needs time to heal. Swelling is very normal and is actually a good thing for your body after being cut open. Be patient and kind to your body so that it can heal the correct way...if you are really concerned speak to your PS and tell him whats on your mind...And you look really good for just coming out of surgery. =)

You will be surprised how much better things will look with time. Stay calm and be patient. Swelling comes to pass. It will NOT look like that forever.
