Tummy Tuck and Arm Lift- Doing well. Bluffton, SC

Hello all! I am scheduled for a TT and Arm Lift on...

Hello all! I am scheduled for a TT and Arm Lift on Oct. 4th. I am a little nervous but mostly overly excited. I had bypass surgery in 2006 lost 85 pounds, then I got pregnant a year and half later gained some weight back. Now I am at 188 and I am 5'4, I am not at my goal weight but I really want to do this! Any advise from anyone who has done the same? Thanks!

Well we are almost in September!! I go for my pre-op on September 12th, I am assuming that I will get more detail on my surgeries and of course I have a few questions too! I'll keep you all posted on my progress!

Hello all!!! I go for my pre-op in 4 days, super excited but yet I still am so nervous. I posted a couple of pics-not the best but hey, this is why I am getting a TT and arm lift! I will keep you all posted on my progress and I will write back after I see my surgeon.

Well my pre-op is in 2 days!! Surgery in 24 days!!! I am so excited, I just wish I could get it done now but I must wait. I have been getting things a little at a time, got my shower chair, toilet seat riser, bath wipes, face wipes, extra binder, pad for the couch chair, extra pillow, button down jammies... I feel like I still need more but I will wait until after I see my surgeon! I will keep you all posted.

20 days til the DAY!!! I am super excited and ready. I just want it over and done with so I can begin my recovery and my life without my extra belly! Happy healing to all of you!

16 DAYS til the day!! Oh my goodness... there are a mix of emotions right now, happy, nervous, anxious, excited! I am really hoping my recovery won't be too bad but I expect it won't be a walk in the park either. I have to say that I am not looking forward to sleeping on the couch recliner, but from what I have read that is probably my best option. Thinking about all those medications I have to take is making me nervous too, seems like a lot but I guess the doctor knows what he's doing! I'll keep you all posted!

Post op day 4- feeling pretty good. I am up and walking more and I stopped the pain meds. I have not taken off any of my compression garments yet so I am not sure how things look. From what I can tell it looks good. I finally went to the bathroom and it wasn't bad at all. I'll post more later, I have my 5 day follow up tomorrow.

It ha been 8 days since my surgery and overall I feel ok. Still sore and the area where my drains are seem to be irritated. My underarms are irritated too but they sure do look good! My stomach is swollen so it is not as flat as I would like, but I think it will take more time.

It's been 12 days since my surgery. I got one...

It's been 12 days since my surgery. I got one drain out and Friday I will have the other removed. It has been okay so far but I am extremely sore all over. Since I had an arm lift too my arms are tender. I am not doing much of anything just trying to recover. I hope to post pics soon. Happy healing!

Hello all! It has been 4 weeks since my TT and arm lift. All is going well, still a little tired on some days but over all I feel good. I saw my PS on Friday and he says we will need to do some touch up work but not until I am 6 months out. I just want it all done and over with! I am posting some pics! Happy healing everyone!

I found him through my PCM at the Naval Hospital. She said he was one of the best around. I was very impressed with his staff and the cleanliness of his office.
