You look amazing!!!!! Did you have any lipo with your tummy tuck. My marshmallow looks like your before pic after three C-Sections and life after 40....lol

I had a full abdominal plasty which include Lipo inside Lipo of the flanks muscle repair skin removal! I had 5 csection to me the pain of the tuck is equal to the pain of the sections this has been a walk in the park I must say! If you look at my after pics I was up walking upright 3 hours after surgery! My drains are doing a great job getting the fluid off my stomach and the swelling is gradually going down this was a great decision! I love my belly button! This has been a wonderful journey for me no problems so far!

Just leaving my follow up appointment! A little disappointed thought I was getting my drains out today but my Doc says the longer we leave drains in the more liquid my body doesn't have to absorb and therefore there will be less swelling. So one more week with my two grenades! I did get the sutures out of my belly button and so far healing is going perfect!!!! Going to by me a spank style panty girdle so I can switch between the binder and the panty! This has been a great experience!

Hello TacomaHopeful how's everything I just checked out your review and I can't wait to see your after photos!!!

This is GREAT! Can't wait to see your after pics!!!!!! Happy healing!!!'

Side note for all of you who's doctor is extra cautious and keeps drain in a little longer than others a great way to shower with your drains is to take a pair of panties or thong and attach drains to panties best shower ever!! Just a little trick I've mastered thought I would share!!

Hello everyone! Ill be 4 weeks post op
on April 22 and everything is going perfect! My incision is healing great I'll start my silicon treatments at 6 weeks post op to help with the scar from my incision I'm excited to see what that's about and if it will make scar disappear or what! My swelling is going down a lot right now since I've been wearing my CG all day at work taking it off when I get home and putting it back on before bed! My swelling on my lipo sections have gone down a lot since I've been doing that! I've been using a combination of bio oil and palmers cocoa butter skin therapy oil to try get rid of the few stretches marks that weren't removed during my tuck I'm impressed with it! In not putting any thing on my I incision per the doctor but Bactrian just help with healing! The Flat side is awesome! Happy healing stay encouraged and be blessed! My 1 year wedding anniversary tomorrow!!!!!!!!
