9 DAY POST OP- TT with BBL May 11, 2012 - Aventura, FL,

Hey everyone, I'm having a tummy tuck together...

Hey everyone, I'm having a tummy tuck together with a Brazilian butt lift at the same time May 11th 2012. I'm 30 with 3 daughters ages 7,8,10. I've wanted a tuck since I had the 1st child. I'm nervous to have the 2 procedures done at the same time but doc does zoo much lipo during a tummy tuck that they prefer to just put it in the butt then and there. Im also nervous of the pain but want the results more. I chose my PS due to the success women have had on this site. I check his background and I'm confident in my choice. The next 3 months will fly by I'm sure.

It would be hard to do a pic but basically I go between one of these positions.
1) take 3-4 firmer pillows and prop them up for your head/neck use a bigger neck pillow and put it just below those others pillows. Your mid/lower back will rest on this to elevate your butt. Then take like a body pillow fold it in 1/2 and shove it under your knees maybe add another after so ur feet arnt just hanging. U will need to adjust urself to get comfie but just make sure ur hinney is barely touching the couch or bed.
2) sides.. Get on bed or couch on ur hands n knees n slowly lower urself down so ur close to the cushion them roll urself to whatever side u want so most of ur body is sideways but just a little bit tilted forward to take addtnl pressure off ur booty.make sure to use a pillow in between ur knees when ur on ur sides too. I'd change between these 3 every hr or so. U can also sit on an open backed chair...letting ur butt hang out. I use a pillow to sit on too for added cushioness!! I hope this helps!!!!

Hello ladies! Good to see more TT & BBL combo's! I had a TT with Lipo to my inner thighs, lower back, abs & flanks & the BBL last Monday march 5th. I was very concerned with recovery positions as you don't want to irritate your TT incision nor do u want much or any weight pressure on your new booty. I have learned how to manipulate a bunch of pillows to keep my butt from barly touching my couch yet I'm still at an incline and on my back to http my TT heal. I also rotate sleeping/resting on both sides. It's a pain in the rear to keep switching butt(pun intended) its worth saving the fat that was recently transferred & trying to survive. I had a billion questions & had a hard time finding ladies doing both so if you have any questions just let me know!!! ;)

3 DAY POST-OP: just had my massage with celia, i feel good right now. i took 1 percocet an hour before massage. massage felt good till she reached my back cause i have most swelling there so it wlow,as very tender and sore. im still in just a binder, i think i get cg wednesday which is also my 2nd massage and 2nd follow up with dr. i may try to just take tylenol and see how i feel and jus percocet at night. pain is minimal and nausea is gone since yesterday. now i have heartburn but that should go away when off percocet. im actually surprised at how good i feel, i was expecting the worse. i eat about everyother time i get up, its not much but must keep eating. apetite getting better. i also go peepee everytime i get up, no bm yet just pass gas. butt is still like a rock. my tt scar is really low and thin, the usual swelling and bruising. overall im very happy. just taking it day by day
You look amazing! Happy healing to you :-)
