I would recommend to anyone considering this procedure to be realistic of the pain and discomfort that will be experienced in the first 2wks of having the procedure and the scarring (along w/ "dog ears" to possible form). Also to be prepared to wear a binder (if recommended by your surgeon which my did/does) which will be a discomfort for everyday activities. It's a life changing procedure, but prior to having it done to do your research and ask questions even if you think it's sounds ridiculous.
Tummy Tuck & Breast Reconstruction at Age 40
I had a tummy tuck along w/ breast reconstruction...
Prior to surgery my doctor wanted to remind me of the scarring and how it'll get better bit by bit.
