How do you know where the lipo was done if u had a tummy tuck? Lik how can u tell where the lipo suction area is?

I can see the difference in my flanks. And I got my back done too. And my back looks great. I have an hour glass shape now when I stand. There is a HUGE difference in my back! That's where mist of lipo was done. He removed 4 liters of fat.

So far I wouldnt recommend him for tummy tuck. Hopefully my results will improve even more and my opinion will change. But i would def reccomen him for lipo!! Lipo, yes! Tummy tuck, unsure. I tried to post my pics a few months ago but couldn't. I'm gonna try again.

Tummy tuck. It's where the incision was closed on my hip

LOL.. It's like a little bump that comeout of my side. I have nicknamed it the pinky.. It's like a nub. It's a nubbin.. Lol.. It's hard to describe.

When u sat hurt u mean after the surgery?? U didn't feel anything during right?? Ughhh now I'm scared becuz I hate pain..... how long until u culd have a normal day?

No during surgery your completely asleep. It's after surgery during the healing process that I'm referring to. I still don't have normal days. There's always swelling or pinching or a shooting pain somewhere. But it's not unbearable.

Hi.

I went to see him today. He was very nice. He agreed I was still swollen and advised me to continue to wear my garment as much as I can and it should all be gone in a month. Also I expressed my concern about my stomach sticking out when I sit. He aske me to try and pinch my skin. I couldn't. My skin is tight. He also said if he pulled my skin so tight so that it would be flat, that I would not be able to stand. He used a shirt as an example. When u stand the shirt is flat when u sit it crumpled a little. The example made sense to me. I forgot to ask about the pinky coming out of my side. I asked about mederma and je advised me to continue to massage my stomach and back to get rid of the dar tissue which is just about gone on my back. He agreed that there was great improvement from where I started but I'm still not at the finish line yet. Hope this helps.

I am not 100% pleased. I am still swollen at 7 weeks to the point that my stomach sticks out when I sit. It is def smaller than it was before though. Also on one side of incision the sar sticks out kinda like the sixth finger nub some people have. The lip he did on my back and flanks however I am 200% happy with! My contouring is great. My whole body looks good (hour glass) when I stand up only. I have appt 2morrow I'm gonna ask about this swelling.
