I had a TT and breast lift Dec 13, 2010. So I am now a week out and feeling pretty good. I am up moving around. The mornings are the worst time because everything has settled overnight and takes a while to stretch and get moving. Besides the drains I have been pretty comfortable (sleeping in a recliner).

Was this review helpful?

I had my 3 weeks post appt today. This is really the best I have ever felt. Replaced all the tape and gave me bioCorneum to put on the Scar when the tapes comes off. I will still be in the binder for another 4 weeks. He suggested exercising by pulling the arms back holding a towel. Another great tip I got from another board was to wear one of those weight loss belts in the shower for support! That was like heaven. No more light-headed feeling in the shower. I still get sharp pains every now and then but aside from Motrin or Tylenol I haven't taken anything else.

Hope everyone else is healing well!

Hi TT...I live in the Atlanta area and have been considering a TT and lipo of hips and thighs (not to keen on having the boobs done, but maybe I'll change my mind). My husband and I have 4 daughters, so we ARE DONE with kids! How did you go about finding a good surgeon and who performed yours (if you don't mind me asking).

It seems like my incision is a little hard today. Maybe the new all over binder is a little too light. I am going to try to go without it tonight. Other than that I drove for the first time today for a much needed mani/pedi! Felt great!

Hi Sunshine. I didn't have the cough before surgery kjust a slight sore throat. Sudafed after the surgery was the best thing. I suggest you have lots of pillows to hold on your stomach to cough. I even had to have my husband hold them heimlich style once. But like the evrthing else its a thing of the past and I am still moving forward each day :)
Good luck!

Congrats TT... your pics are amazing! I just read that you had a cough from a cold after your surgery and I am going through the same thine. My surgery is tomorrow morning and I have been sick all week. Te cough is a hacking cough and I am draining so much from my nose. I a so scared but everyone tells me it should be OK. The Xanax I took abut an hour ago is also helpng :-)

Keep up the great work and I will be following your progress!

Trena, it was a week before i had my first shower. My scars are still covered in tape so I haven't applied anything to them. I would like some suggestions on what is good for scars.

Thanks Baby Blues, I was 142 and 5 6 at the time of the surgery.

I found that sleeping without the garment is best for you. Less pain in the morning.

Your before and afters are amazing. Your lift is wonderful. I would have never had such fabulous breasts without an implant. You look so tiny how much do you weigh/height etc?

I'm going to have my first shower today so I'm a little nervous but I got help so it's all good.when did you start putting anything on your scars? right now it feels like really dry on the incision and it pulls a bit so can i put polysporn over the tape to make it feel better? anything??? anyways take care

WOW! What an excellent job your PS did! The results are phenomenal and I'm sure they'll look even better once you've healed. Congratulations.

Today was a great day. Moving around pretty good and only needed mininum pain meds.

Hi all, it was a rough couple of days because I developed a cough due to a cold. You can imagine how painful that was. I also had to say I am not superwoman and take the pain meds a little while longer. Make sure you are taking a laxative to balance it all off. On a good note, the drains are out (yes it hurt). I am going to post pics.

Thanks so much for sharing on RealSelf! We'd love to hear more of your story. What were the first few days like for you post-op?

If you haven't seen it, Kimmers' Tummy Tuck Survival Guide gives great (and very real) information on what recovery is like.

The drains are the worst. It is amazing how much better you will be feeling after they come out and in the next week.

Congrats TT... I hear the drains are the worst! I am scheduled for a TT and BL on 12-28 and I am sooooo nervous. Will you be posting before and after pictures? Hope so...
