My Decision to Get a Tummy Tuck - Connecticut

I had my first child at age 15. I did'nt even recognize myself after coming home from the hospital. After nursing for a year my boobs were never the same either. I never gained much weight and have always been thin and into nutrition and exercise but nothing would change the saggy, deflated belly skin that I have grown to despise. Finally at age 30, 4 kids later, the time has come. I am terrified and more exited than ever and cant wait to look in the mirror and see a flat tummy in the reflection. Finding this website has been a huge help in my decision to go through with it!

Ok, its day 4 post-op and I finally feel like a human again. Sponge bath, hair washed, lotion and deoderant and Im a new person! Only taking tylenol and valium to help me sleep. My back and bum hurt worse than anything although my tummy burns a bit all over. I have not walked much except to the potty and its still quite painful to get up, prob because Im not on narcs. They just make me so sick. I see my new tummy tommorrow and the wrapping Ive been in since wed. is soaked with dried blood. Its so gross and I cant imagine how its going to hurt coming off. Breathing is hard.Cant take a good deep breath in most positions. This is not easy by any means, but Im so happy it is over with. Any one having 2nd thoughts, dont. Just go for it!

Day 5! Dressings came off today and saw my new bod for the first time. I have to be honest, I was surprised that there is still some loose skin on my lower belly and a lot more stretch marks left than I had hoped. Also, my new belly button is absolutely TINY! At first I thought they forgot to give me one! My hubby said not to worry but my teen said it is really bad (too small). I dont know what to do, please tell me what you think ladies. At this point all I know is that when I look at my before pics and then see my new tummy Im in awe at the amazing difference and Im happy. I know Im only 5 days post op and things will continue to change and get better so Im not letting my high expectations get in the way of the healing process, but the loose skin down low was a bit of a surprise, is this normal? I thought I would be tighter all the way down. You cant tell in my pics, but its there
