39 Yrs Old, 3 Boys Ages 13 & 5 Yr. Old Twins - Cedar Park, TX

Over the last year & a half, I lost a total of 45 lbs. I am 5'10 & weight 195 lbs. My main problem area is the kangaroo pouch below my belly button.
I had surgery on 5/30 at Beleza Medspa in Cedar Park, Tx. The first week I was in some pain, stiff and had bruising from the smartlipo done on my abdomen & flanks. Most of the bruising subsided in week two. However, I am still slightly swollen. I am trying to be patient but today is day 21 post-op & even though my results are better than before, I am still not where I thought I would be at 21 days post-op. I will post another pic today & try to post future pics every friday. Remarks/ thoughts are appreciated.

21 days post-op

38 days post-op

Still wearing my compression garments & I started waist training about 2 weeks ago. The waist trainer is latex & fits better than any compression garment I have ever seen! I am drinking a ton of water & doing 4 to 5 miles everyday. I am praying my stomach is completely flat by July 18th when I go on vacation.

Dr. Lawrence Broder

The doctor & his staff are all very pleasant. Not as much interaction with the doctor as I would have liked, but he is professional & answered any questions I had.

Hello prissyrudy! Yes,I had lipo on my upper abdomen & flanks (sides/love handles) and a mini tummy tuck. I had a lip or extra hanging skin below my belly button, from being stretched while pregnant with the twins. The cost was not that bad considering how expensive these types of procedures can be. $4599.00, Dr. Lawrence Broder, he is in Cedar Park & Austin Tx. I'm Happy, it's been one of my best self investments! Best wishes $

What procedures did you have? Your before tummy looks great for having twins. I am mom of 19 mo twins, 3 mo old, and 11 year old. My stomach stretched a lot with the twins. You after looks great as well.

Give the healing process some time; the swelling takes a while to go down.  

Congratulations on your weight loss.
