Im hoping my drainage will flow better..and that this bulge on my right side will dissappear. I have thick blood on my right side, I do not like getting up bc it adds too much pressure on my back, to the point I wanna give up walking.

Thanks ladies! I hate getting up, I have too much pressure on my back and it hurts like heck on my back. I lay down as much as possible but I know I have to move more to get my blood circulating. My right drain is clogged so my husband and I are milking it as much as possible. My right side has thick blood so its hard to drain. My left drains just fine. I also have a bulge on my right lower abdomen. I'm hoping this goes away soon, and I am hoping to walk easier as well.

Hey dear. How are you feeling? I had my TT done on Tuesday and I've been laying down in the recliner all day long. Only getting up to go use the bathroom. I'm feeling so lazy. Hope you are healing well. Best wishes to you.

I'm starting to feel better. I'm 3 days PO and I can get up on my own a little bit better now. I don't need my pain meds as often anymore. I took a peek at my tummy tuck and it looks like it is flattening out nicely and my incision in nice and low where I can choose any bikini I would like. I got 350cc silicone implants, I was going for a regular c look. I use to have 600cc saline implants that I felt were too big on me. I also had a capsular contraction on the left boob, which is why I chose to get them redone. I'm 5'2 116-120 pounds and I feel the 350cc looks a lot better on me.

Day 5 post op

Feeling much better. The soreness in my abs are slowly subsiding. Still walk bent over, which takes a toll only back if I'm standing too long. I went to walmart with my husband and kids and got around using the electric wheel chair shopping cart thing the have. I got so many stares either on that thing or walking with a hunched back. People are not use to a young girl looking like she has back problems. And people are rude with their staring! I went to the park with my husband and kids, and sat on the bench bent over while watching the kids play. It was nice to get some fresh air. But again I got those akward stares. Im tired of being in bed at home, I needed to get out. But that was an eventful day for me, I was glad to get back home and lay back down to rest my back. Hoping tomorrow I can stand a little more straight.

So sorry you couldn't enjoy your time outside. You are looking good. At least I think you are looking good. Keep your chin up and do your best to ignore those people when you want more time outside. Don't let it stop you. Hope this next week and your next trip out goes very well.

Day 7 post op.
Got my drains and all stitches taken out today. I finally got to see what my belly button looks like. Everything is looking great, I'm becoming more confident that I got this done. I put on my 2nd stage garment (design by veronique) Its super tight, but I feel like it really makes me thinner, and helps me stand up straight. The doctor's office was selling 100% silicone based, with spf scar gel called BioCorneum but I didnt buy it because I thought my scar cream that I ordered from makemeheal.com had silicone in it. Well when I got home I checked the ingredients and no silicone :( My PS office is an hour away so I tried looking for BioCorneum online and its only sold through physicians. I came across Scarprin which is also 100% silicone, and highly rated, so I ended up ordering that. I may buy the Biocorneum gel when Im at my 6 week post op.

I was hoping to get in a bikini this summer, but with swelling, and taking care of the scar, I might have to wait till next summer to show off the goods :(

The 350cc's really compliment your body! You look great! What cup size did this end up making you? I"m still undecided on size...but the 350 seems to look pretty natural.

I'm sitting between a regular C to a full C. I had no breast tissue at all to begin with. So if you have some breast tissue you may have to go smaller cc achieve a C cup. But 350cc is perfect to et a C cup for someone who has little tO no breast tissue
Thanks. It just gets annoying to be stared at. My husband was actually more offended than I was lol

My left breast the one that had the capsular...

My left breast the one that had the capsular contraction is firmer and noticeably bigger than my right breast. This is a BIG concern that this is happening again. I been massaging them like crazy and my left breast feels bruised but my right has no pain. I'm hoping my left is just swollen and will come to look like my right. It is noticeable in clothes, and I DO NOT need this to happen again!

I am 15 days PO and reduced my selling by drinking shakeology once a day..Then I did the shakeology 3 day cleanse, after day 1 I noticed a big difference with my swelling. I go to the bathroom often while on the cleanse, so I know Im flushing all the sodium out. I feel great. More info about shakeology on my blog here:

For my Stage 2 compression Garment I am using Design by Veronique. It is super tight, it's hard to get past the hips at first but once it on, it's really comfy. It is not noticable under tight clothes because it is seamless. I also got my healing bra from there too. I posted pics of the bra and garment below. You can get these from Makemeheal.com

So I finally told my family but they don't seem suprised and they don't seem interested in talking about it. I can tell in the back of their mind they think I am crazy. But this is my body and what I choose to do with it is up to me, I don't see why people just can't be happy for me. I feel and look amazing, I would just like the support back. At least my husband and I are happy campers, that's all that matters :)

Hey congratualations you look great just a quick question I am 6 days from my mommy makeover nervous as I never been can't stop eating junk food.

I see you did a cleanse quick question is did u start right after?
  • Reply
i started the cleanse around 2 weeks post op, when I started feeling normal and normal energy again. I suggest you start it when you are standing up straight, and able to do most things (besides lifting of course). I healed fairly quickly everyone is different. After the tummy tuck I ate losts of lean protein and veggies, and drank protein shakes. Protein helps speed recovery, so I think this helped me recover faster. Also watch your sodium intake, avoid fast foods, processed foods...because those will leave you really bloated! hope this helps and good luck :)
