I would greatly appreciate hearing your experiences with or without muscle repair. What were your results? Did it take longer to heal with muscle repair. Please respond with experiences

Hi. Post op day 7 mommy make over with mini tummy tuck. 2 pregnancies, 2 c- sections. No muscle repair needed top or bottom only lip I needed to the whole trunk. My surgical site does not hurt at all but then again I have adhesive foam with a tight binder. Make sure u as your surgeon everything u need to know.

I know I responded to your other post, but wanted to add...muscle repair , in my experience, can be painful to recover from, but I am happy that I did it in the long run. Your doctor should be able to tell you how separated your muscles are, and if you need it.

With the pregnancy I think he may advise the muscle repair. I hate pain but I want this so bad

The pain doesn't last forever! I had my surgery less than eight months ago and I would do it again if I had to.
