I had 2 C-Sections and was diagnosed with PCOS at 19 years old. PCOS causes un-even fatty deposits in your abdomen area and I was left with saggy skin under my belly button.
I went to a plastic surgeon and he recommended a full tummy tuck. But I wasn't too fond of the longer recovery time, longer scar and multiple drains.
I am 5'4 and weighed 134 when I went in last Monday March 18th for my procedure. It is now Wednesday March 20th and I am in a lot of pain and I weigh 132. I had liposuction of the front abdomen and the loose skin cut off. I was actually shocked at how long the scar is. I have 1 drain in and the first day I drained 500 CCs and the second day I drained 115 CC's, so it slowed down significantly. I wear the compression garment at all times and if I take it off I am in even more pain. I am taking the medication that was prescribed (Muscle Relaxer, Pain Killer and Antibiotic).
I have been un-happy with my stomach since I had my first child at 20 and I am now 28 and do not plan on having any more children.
When I first came out of surgery I noticed a terrible pain to the right of my belly button, which has turned into a large bulge. You can see it in my pictures. I am just hoping it is fluid that will go away with time. Ask any questions you may have, I am here to help.
I am now post op 2 weeks and 3 days. I'm looking...
