Today I am 5 days post op and I am able to stand up a little better without the help of my walker, my hips and belly are a swollen still. I am realistic enough to know that I wont be fixed in a blink of an eye, but Im hoping that those areas go down so I can put on some jeans.
Before my surgery I was a size 9, today I was brave enough to try on some size 6 that I found on my closet and I was able to pull them all the way up, but couldn't button them up, it is all good I know in a few months I will...
Another thing I want to mention, is that I have been experiencing a burning sensation right below the left drain, but it goes away after applying a cold compress or an ice pack, not sure whats going on but as long as I look fine I can deal with the burning thing, lol......I would ask my PS when I go in on Monday!

A friend of mine recommended him after she had her surgery, nothing but thumbs up. Dr Reid is the best, not to mention he has an awesome personality, he is funny , candid and HONEST! so exactly what I was looking for. I had my tummy tuck April 19th 2013, and I can say is the best decision ever and I am so glad I found him, he did an awesome job my stomach is to tight I cant even laugh but I don't care its perfect just like I wanted it to be, worth every penny! If you choose him you will not be disappointed. I can vouch for him bc he did my stomach and its great, I feel happy and glowing thanks to him and his wonderful staff, my RN was Rebecca and she is also great, very knowledgeable and with an awesome personality they took care of me every time I had a question or concern.
