Mommy make-over, speedy healing, standing straight quickly, hardly any breast pain. Have I done something wrong? (photo)

I lost 100 lbs and had TT/breast lift/ flank lipo. My first 2 days were painful but not horrible. By day 3 I could stand up straight 90% of the time with little pain, just some tightness/burning. I was almost reminding myself to hunch over. I had my muscles re tightened and I'm afraid that maybe I overdid it and re-stretched them and this is why it doesn't hurt...is this possible? I haven't removed my binding bc my follow up appt is tomorrow and was told not to. My drains have been normal cc's.

It sounds like you are recovering normally. Not all patients have a painful recovery. Discuss your concerns with your surgeon at your next visit. Best wishes.

Speedy recovery after surgery?

+1

Every patient will recover at different rates following surgery -- this has as much to do with your physical health, mental state, as well as the what happens in the operating room. I would just make sure that you listen to your body and not overdo it; also, continue to follow the instructions of your plastic surgeon. Good luck!
