I am seven days post-op of a tummy tuck with lipo. I was an unlikely candidate due to my height & weight. (5'6 @ 283lbs) wow...I know that is a lot. I have tried for the last nine years since my last child of three to get my "body" back but only continued to gain. I consulted with a plastic surgeon five years ago about a possible TT but was frightened @ the thought. I tried for another five years to attack this weight on my own. One day I realized that I like being "thick" I just wanted my mid-section to be flat again.
I am so glad I went through it! I saw my body 3 days post-op & couldn't believe it. The surgeon told me that I wouldn't have perfect results because of my size but I tell you...I am still swollen & I have come down 10 inches in my waist already, he took out 15lbs of fat and I have no bruising, very minimal pain & looking great already!
I went to my follow-up yesterday & he showed me my before photos & that looked like a stranger to me...lol! I am loving it and can't wait for the months to pass so I can see the final results! Thank you God!

Today I am 12 days Post-op. (Sept 29, 2010) Per my Doc...he says I am healing great. He removed my sutures & stitches from my belly-button today. My swelling has gone down tremendously. I am feeling wonderful. I have been getting my walking done daily and it has drastically improved my flexibility even my Doc was impressed. I am finally posting my before photos. (You all will be shocked!) Feedback please!!! Be blessed & never discouraged!
Just wanted to add some updated photos. I am doing...

3 months Post-op & standing strong! I feel that i am sexier, free & happy! This experience has opened up new opportunities for me to explore life in a different way. Since September, I have traveled more, I have smiled more, I have laughed more...I have enjoyed more! I used to feel totally uncomfortable when I'd put on my socks, shoes or even shave my legs but now I can flex everything with ease! (A great feeling in itself) I have been motivated to get out & walk because there's nothing jiggling! (I am not ashamed of what my body had turned into...it has been improved) Three month photos soon!
