Tummy Tuck

I went to my pre-op yesterday. They took pictures. Im not nervous, I just dreading the pain afterwards. December 18th, here I come

17 days pre op

17days to go. Everyone's results look great. Did anyone have these ugly fatty love handles like me when yall had the TT. Im hoping the flank lipo with the TT will help this problem. And the overhang. Wll it go completely away

11 days preop

Im not nervous yet. Lookn at yall post op pics im getting anxious. Im so tired of this ugly belly. My back fat is terrible. Did anyone have back fat that went away with diet and exercise

Ut Oh!!

I think Im starting to get nervous. DEC 18TH is next week. What if I don't like. This is my 2nd go round. I had lipo last year, regretted it. Now Tummy Tuck. Sssoooo Nervous!!!


6 days 2 go!!! Help!! What's good to the Tummy Tuck scar


I am getting nervous. Wednesday is a few days away. Picked up some PJ's for my overnight stay. Do the feed you once the surgery is over? Of course Im NPO after midnight but Im on a liquid diet the day before. Did anyone else have to liquid diet the day before?

A Nervous Wreck

I was watching youtube videos on general anesthesia. I've never been put to sleep before. Can yall please tell me how long it took to walk straight again. I am trying to keep my 6yr old from seeing my discomfort. He is so sensitive about his Mommy.

Today is the day!!

Well gm RS!!! Today is the day. I am starting & nervous at the same time.

it's done

Tummy tuck was yesterday. Im okay. Waiting to get discharged. It feels like a c-section all over again...

4 days post op

Woke up feeling good. Had my 1st shower yesterday. I haven't been outside yet, thinking about going to the market today. Im walking pretty good, I'm just a little stiff when I go from a sitting to standing position... Im draining about 25cc from 1 drain & 20 from the other in a 12 hr period. Im hoping both be less than 30cc in 24hrs by Tuesday so these things can come out. Will post pics ASAP.. Happy Healing yall.

4 days post op

Here's a few pics. My belly hard as a rock. Hope to get these drains out soon. I measure 630a & 630p. This morning they were at 25 & 20cc. Tonight they were at 20 & 15cc. Keep on decreasing so yall can come out...

6 days post op..

Hey RS... How soon did yall start using the gel or ointment on ya incision scar??


I forgot to ask.. does it hurt when the drains come out???

9 days post op

Got drains out today.. Go back 2 work Sunday. . I am ready..Im doing good. Walkn straight, went 2 the mall twice already. Trying to decide if I want a tighter garment. Hope you all are healing well..

6 weeks post op

Hi RS, haven't been on here in a while bcuz things were the same. I went to my 6week postop appt on Thursday. He said im lookn good. Still firm from my swollen belly. I am now using mederma and massaging the scar. I had a lot of pain on my right side for the past two days when I woke up. He told me I can stop using the garment. Im used to it now. I sleep with it off and wear it during the day. Im doing elipitcal for cardio. I think ima start with a small number of crunches per night. Maybe 20... I need some help with these inner thighs. I have a thigh master from walmart. It's not helpn me. Any other ideas?

You're doing great. All I did was go downstairs and make my own tea and I've been in bed ever since.

Congrats, you are looking great... It didn't hurt when my drains came out but it did sting a little. The pain went away quickly. My PS won't let me use gels or start scar treatment until 8 weeks PO, but again everybody's doc is different. Happy healing!!

Yea I have he seen the reviews on them. It is a hit or miss on them just like the rest of them. I was only looking at the scar away because I have read a lot of reviews on them from some of the women on this site. The new gel+ was recommended by my ps
