Lipo and Mini-Tummy Tuck Procedure - Columbus, OH

I'm getting married in June and after 2 kids and much stress I decided to get a Tummy tuck and Lipo of my whole stomach and flanks. My procedure took place on April 10 so That makes me 2 weeks pot op on tomorrow. I didn't have the issues that so many spoke of. I think I walked hunched over the first day definitely cand Probably the next. After that I was walking fine. I stop the pain meds after day 2 and only took the nerve and muscle medicine. I had my drains removed on day 6 which was a Monday and as soon as I got them removed I went with my fiance and walked 2 1/2 miles on the trail and felt lovely. My only complaint right now is that my stomach is not flat enough for me and it feels so hard. I can literally feel my ribs but my stomach is hard and the incision area is still puffy. My love handles or flanks I must say right now is the best piece of art. You can clearly see the difference. I guess I just need to be a bit more patient with the front part of my abs and wait for the results. I would definitely do it again because I had a wonderful experience.

If you are in the Columbus area I would highly reccomend Dr. Bivik Shah. He is very intellectual and also he is always available for you if you have any concerns. My surgery was excellent. I didn't have any issues that I read from previous postings. So far everything has been smooth sailing. I'm just waiting for this front section to be smooth out. My love handles are gorgeous. I'm at aww when I look into the mirror.

Okay today is May 1 and I'm exactly 3 week post op. On this past Sunday my navel area started draining something terrible. It's still actually draining a lot but the crazy thing is I like it becausemy stomach is actually much flatter. I hate having to keep changing the gauzes over my navel though. Lol. I will post up to date pictures later.

Okay today is May 12 and i'am 5 weeks post op. I must say I'm starting to really like my results. I'm sure I still have more healing to come so that's good. I haven't started exercising yet but I do go walking everyday. Here are some photos that I just taken.

Okay, today is May 22 and I'm 6 weeks post op. I feel really good. Still a little drainage from my navel area but not much to sing about. My figure is looking lovely I must say. I do have some pictures that I will soon put on the site that was taken before the surgery. I will also take more pics in a couple of weeks to show more results of the "Good Doctor" work. Lol. I still wear my Compression Garment, in fact it feels so weird without it. I haven't done any exercise still yet except for walking miles on the trail. I still go through my swell days but nothing too extent. But I will definitely keep you posted. Until next time stay Beautiful.

Hello Ladies. It's been 11 weeks since I had my Lipo of lower and upper abs, flanks and mini tummy tuck. So far so good. I was a little afraid to start doing my situps but I'm gradually starteing. My stomach still gets really tight when I'm sitting down for a long period of time. But the results are great. I do a lot of walking on the trail. I'm still happy about the decision I made to have this procedure done. I will submit more photos soon.
Columbus Plastic Surgeon

The wait time wasn't the best because he is a great surgeon and everyone want to get in to see him. I think on consultation day I waited for about 2 hours and I had an appointment. I feel they should make all appoints at least 45 minutes apart. Other than that I can't complain about anything else.
