On March 26 I had a TT with MR, lipo to lower and upper back and flank areas, the actual incision never hurt but what it killed me was the lipo, also my PS did an excellent job with my abs that I couldn't walk straight until week 4 , I'm so grateful I had 5 weeks off from work, today is week 6 and still sore still wearing my compression garment which is driving me insane!!! but I had to wear it, soooo happy so far with what I see hoping my swelling goes down even more .....

Today is week 7 post op and still the swelling going down specially my lower back and pubic area but can see start noticing the results, super happy!!!

Yesterday I started a dry cough which now it has me with no voice!!! I'm taking leftover of my robitussin with codeine but running low and since i'm seeing my PS this Wednesday i might ask him to give me a prescription , what bothers me when I cough is my lower ab right below the bb, everytime I cough i have to push down so I don't hurt....anyways!! I hope to get rid of this cough that is very anoying.....

So I'm on week 9 post op, on Memorial weekend we had a get together here at my house and so I started drinking beer and did not sit down at all the entire day...well let me tell you I was wearing a wait cincher BUT when I took it off oh boy!!! I looked like blown balloom, and very sore on my waist line which lasted 2 days!! so to all my tummy tuckers just because you are 9 wks post op doesn't mean you are completely heal!!

So tomorrow I turn 10 wks post op and so far so...

So tomorrow I turn 10 wks post op and so far so good!! it's being a very challenged 10 wks and more to come, if I can just get rid of the swelling every time I come home from work I will be happier, I still can't wear my clothes by choice, it's very umcortable on my insicion so I rathe to wear yoga pants that are more comfortable for me , as per my PS I will stop wearing the CG by next week...yay!!!! yes I'm wearing it still..:( but then I'll wear it just for work , I'm a nurse and walk a lot and there is when I get swollen spaecially on my lower back, I will go see my PS this month on the 27 so I'll ask if he can try to drain something from my lower back since I see a tiny bulge that does not let me see the curve of my lowe back so if he does and nothing comes out then I'll try the lymphatic massages and hope it works, my abdomen still needs to sunk in more I hope so it looks more natural, so far I'm more than happy with the results my PS is Godsend artist God bless his hands forever for doing such a good job....I'll post new pics by wk 12 hoping to keep on seeing more changes....:)

I decided to stop wearing the CG this past...

I decided to stop wearing the CG this past Wednesday I had being wearing it for 2 months just as my PS asked , I was going to wear it for a bit longer but with the weather here in Miami is impossible too damn hot and super humid so CG is off!! I have noticed less swelling go figured!! I went to walmart this morning and got me a type of waist cincher size large and it fits so nice and tight enough that is not cutting my waist ....Now I just need to get with the program and start some serious cardio workout...let's see how it goes...:)

Today is post op week 12, and still not feeling...

Today is post op week 12, and still not feeling 100%, I went to a field trip with my son's school today and ended up very sore and swollen, uncomfortable, I was desperate to get home and just change to a more comfortable clothes for some reason I can't handle my regular clothes and is not even tight...is a matter of time so I can get use to it.....don't even feel like posting new pics but maybe when the swelling goes down a bit more I will .....

So I came home went to my closet and got this white skirt and my stripe yellow top put it on and i really liked it and now am posing it to see what you guys think????

Today I had my legs and bikini area waxed I...

Today I had my legs and bikini area waxed I thought it was going to be painful after the surgery but it was not ( I've being doing it for 6 years) I don't have hair over mi insicion but just a bit under it and thought that was going to hurt ( it used to hurt with my csection scar) but like I said it didn't ...and so how's everybody doing??????

Yesterday I went for my 13wks check up and...

Yesterday I went for my 13wks check up and everything is healing smoothly, Dr Azurin amazing like always was super excited to see his work and so did I, he said I looked stunning ( to his eyes) he said the swelling is less but expected when doing lot of walking and just to hang on because eventually will go away....he took some after pictures and I will see him in 3 months.....he does not want me to do ANY type of abs or crossfit yet so I don't compromise the work he had done in my abs and asked me to wait at least 2 more months to do so, I'm more than ok with that if I have come this far to get the results I have now why not wait 2 more months??!!! ....OK girls hope everybody is doing great and looking beautiful!!!!

Ok girls so I'm on my 16th week post op not bad at...

Ok girls so I'm on my 16th week post op not bad at all but still can stand wearing anything tight or semi-tight over my incision or hips area, I started to use mederna gel because I ran out of the mederma lotion, Oh boy!! after about 3-4 days it started to itch and realized that it was the mederma gel, so I using now scaraway gel hoping this will not give me the itch and if so then i'll just will not put anything over incision but regular body lotion to keep it moist I;m not too much of a believer on all these creams, lotions for the scar plus the scar does not bother me all, I've being super lazy and not exercise at all BUT i have keeping my new post op weight 133lbs (preop I was about 146Lbs) my husband is like a sergeant after me and telling that my belly is going to come back if I watch what I put in my mouth but then you see him asking me if i want something from mcdonals to eat???No seriously I need to get with the program if I dont want to have ny big old belly back,,,so I wll need to buy some workouts so I can do it here at home and tone up a bit ....the itching drove me nuts at work so lets see how it goes with this new lotion.....

Today I'm 18 wks post op, what can I tell you? is...

Today I'm 18 wks post op, what can I tell you? is getting better I can wear some regular clothes without getting irritated by it specially on my waist the only thing is that since my waist is a bit smaller now I have to fix EVERY single jeans and/or shorts I have from it since they are loose because I refuse to spend money on clothes since I already have plenty!!! today I'm starting for sure exercising but since is soooo hot in here i have to wait until the sun goes down so I can do some cardio on my eliptical ( is in the garage way too hot!!) I'm posting some new pics, they still look the same to me but just posting for the fun of it...hope you all ladies are having a good recovery time and just remember REST! REST and more REST ...have a good one!!!!

Yesterday I turned 5 months post op, things are...

Yesterday I turned 5 months post op, things are getting better, swelling is minimal but I'm still sore at certain areas, the numbness of my lower abs by the pubic area still there, I don't know if it's too late but i'm going to try professional massages to help the swelling to be gone, scar looks better, at first I didn't want to put anything on it but I'm doing the Palmer's Skin Theraphy Oil not sure if is working but i like the smell and how smooth your skin feels,.....posted some pics which I don't see much of a difference but you will be the judge....remember ladies not to over do it just REST! REST!!! that's the key to a wonderful and beautiful tummy.....happy healing and good luck for those who are going to have your TT soon....:)

Hi ladies how's is everybody doing? added some before pictures they are so disgusting but maybe you can appreciate more Dr Azurin's work ...
Nothing new with me I started Sensa about almost a month ago so i don't gain weight, since I honestly been extremelly lazy to start exercise, so far I'm maintaining my weight BUT I seriuosly need to start exercising, I will be seeing Dr A. by the end of this month for my 6 months follow up and hopefully he'll give me the OK to do Crossfit, if he doesn't let me then I will sign up for a Gym until I can fully do exercise with weights and all that crossfit requires you to do....
I still feel funny when I cough and sneeze right at my new pubic area so I have to put my hand in there to support it every time I do such, in my left hip I still feel minor needles pinch , I still wear my waist cincher most of the time and like everybody else I feel and look skinny in the morning and feel fat and ugly at night, at least my ugly belly is not there .....

Ok ladies and gents hope everyone is having a good restful recovery time.....

So yesterday I went for my 6 months post op follow...

So yesterday I went for my 6 months post op follow up and everything went well, Dr Azurin happy of my new curves, he pretty much said this is almost the final result as I might still be a tiny bit swollen but super minimal, now is all up to workout and watch my diet....he could not emphasize enough on not to do ANY kind of abdominal workout NADA absolutely NO crunches,NO twisting waist,NO situps ( which i dont need them now ) reason being that the healing of the abdominal muscles can take up to 8 months and this one right here spent lots of mula to compromise my so beloved and sexy abs (how modest right lol!!) So since I'm dying to try crossfit it ain't going to happen until next year SO I will be joining LA Fitness (this time is for real!!) ...and how are you ladies doing so far?? Thank you if you take your time to read my updates and hope your healing process is smooth...:)

Forgot to mention ...I have a tiny doggy ear that if still looks the same when I turn a year post op Dr. Azurin will fix it, you can bearly see it unless I'm wearing a short top and my waist is exposed then you can see it (btw I don't dare to wear anything that would show my belly....yet!!) ...I didn't ask if there will be a charge for that is too soon BUT I hope there's none!!!

2 years later....

Still loving my results....
