Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation and Uneven Liposuction

I had a full tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and liposuction of the hips and outer thighs 4 weeks ago. I immediatley noticed the results of the outer thigh liposuction and of my left hip, however, my right hip is way bigger and it does not seem to be swelling.How long do I need to wait in your opinion to have the lipo corrected? I am a nurse so I know it is fat and not swelling. I am very pleased with my other procedures.

I am 29 y/o and have had 4 children, two of which were 10 lbs at birth. I weighed 129 before surgery and still am consistent with my 129 after surgery. I had extensive Distsis Rectis that was interfering with my breathing and an umbilical hernia. I had a moderate amount of loose skin on my abdomen and a large tattoo surrounding my belly button that I wished to be removed.

The pros are that I went from a sagging barely B cup breast to a full C that is beautiful, my tummy tuck incision is pretty high but that is what it took the rid me of the awful tattoo on my abd., all of my stretch marks on my belly are gone except for 3 very tiny faint ones that you cannot even see. My lipo will be great once it heals and I have him fix my hip. I just bought a belly chain to cover the incision, it works great. The only con is the uneven lipo.

This dr did awful. the incision kept getting higher as i stood up. NEVER GO TO THIS DOCTOR. Ended up costing me 21,000$

We'd love to see the transformation. Before and after photos would be terrific.

oh and btw mcagle, at first, i was also uneven from my lipo. i would look down on my stomach and it was sloped to the side a bit. the left side was flat and it kinda ballooned out on the right. ur body is in a bit of shock, and its trying to settle down from the surgery. in the meantime ur gona swell, so the uneveness i believe, will definately subside...

ann is right, i did a forum asking why did i look the same after surgery, and it was only a week post op. now its two weeks post op, and what a difference a week makes. i am completely satisfied already, and im STILL healing. but everybody heals differently, so listen to ann- be patient. especially since u had so much done, u definately need more time to heal...

You probably need at least 6 months before you should consider any lipo touch ups. Be patient.
