I am 31 and a mother of 4 beautiful children. I always told myself that after I had children if I couldn't get rid of my tummy I would have a tummy tuck. After my consult with my doctor he confirmed that my muscles had separated.
I had a full tummy tuck with lypo of the flanks done on March 8th, so I am 5 days out. I was so nervous for this surgery and so was my husband. The doctors and nurses were fantastic and my surgery went very well. I woke up feeling pretty good but I was surprised how tight I felt. I felt as though there was a huge weight on my lungs. It was hard to take deep breaths at first. And when they asked me to cough I thought they were kidding! The nurse told me that it was important to cough so I wouldn't get pneumonia. It helped to hug a pillow when I coughed. I stayed overnight at the surgery center and I think that made a huge difference. The first time I had to stand up was hard but not as bad as I expected.
So far I am very happy with my surgery. Scar seems to be very low. I have two drains in that don't bother me too much. I borrowed a lounger from my mom that has a remote recline function to it. I live in this chair! It has made such a big difference for me! I took a shower for the first time yesterday and saw my incision sites. Even thought I am still a bit swollen I can see a big difference.
I have been getting up quite a bit to walk around a little. I think that helps a lot... I have been getting a bit stir crazy!
I am now a week out after surgery and I am having...

This is the second procedure I have done with Dr R and I have been very happy with my results. The scaring is very minimal and my tummy tuck incision looks great so far.
