So Happy So Far! - Baltimore, MD

I am 25yrs old and I have 2 kids both by c-section. My daughter is 3 and my son is 9 months. My stomach muscles seperated with my first pregnancy and got much worse after the 2nd. I looked like I was 4 months pregnant and I am only 5' 3" and 110 lbs. I decided to have a full tummy tuck and lipo of my flanks and after breastfeeding and losing 2 cup sizes I decided to get breast implants and a breastlift. I had my surgery on March 3 and I am now 6 days post op. I got saline implants filled to 310cc.

I had a pain pump for the first couple days and I still have 2 drains which are coming out tomorrow thank God. The drains are aweful, I feel like they are pulling on my skin evertime I move. They haven't really been draining anything for 2 days now but the docs office doesn't want to remove them before a week. I am still taking my pain meds but only 2 to 3 times a day now. I feel like this surgery could have been very manageable if I only did one procedure at a time but I didn't want to go through recovery more then once.

I am pretty happy with the results so far even though I am pretty swollen. My breasts look a little larger then I wanted right now but I think once the swelling goes down I will be much happier. My incision on my stomach appears to be a little higher on the right side but my stomach looks a lot better then what I started with. I only had a little bit of lipo of my flanks but it surprisingly hurts pretty bad. I really don't have any bruising but I feel like a burning sensation from the nerves. My lower back hurts from being hunched over. All in all I am really happy so far.

Well it has been a week today since my surgery. I got both of my drains out today and I was really nervous because I read from some people that it hurts when they come out but mine did not hurt at all. I am so happy to be without my drains.

I went for my 2nd post op appt today and got the stitches taken out of my breasts. I was nervous because I thought this was gonna hurt but it didn't. What did hurt was the nurse needling my stomach 3 times looking for fluid. She said my stomach looked a little more swollen then last time and it felt like fluid but nothing would come out. She said I wouldn't feel it but I definately did.

Dr. C and all his staff have been fantastic so far. Dr. C answered all my questions and really used his best judgement for what was best for me for my implants. I had no idea what size I wanted but I told him I just wanted to be proportianate and I am really happy so far.
