I know what the pros are supposed to be however I haven't gotten there yet the cons for an extended tummy tuck is the horrid pain, swelling and fear the extreme (14 lbs worth) swelling would put me BACK in need of TT.
I did it because I was (still am) confident in the dr I chose, his work is amazing. He is always accessible and certainly caring towards his patients. I waited 21 years to get rid of the nasty looking belly I always tried to hide.I am 12-13 days post op from full tummy tuck, no lipo. I gained 14lbs within first 48 hours, have lost all but one pound. Still have drainage tubes in that are very painful and can't wait to have removed. Ok, told you about severe swelling because I want to know if it would somehow be responsible for continued EXTREME difficulty urinating. Have maintained binders abs STIILL felt like I would explode just TRYING to urinate!!!! Did not have this problem BEFORE surgery though did once after birthing 3rd child. Did not last as long as this.... Any ideas ? My doc at a loss.
