Only Three Days -- but I'm Thrilled So Far - Dallas, TX

I lost 175 pounds following a gastric sleeve, and had significant amounts of loose skin. Dr. Kenkel did a lower body lift and breast lift on Wednesday morning. It is now Saturday, and I'm THRILLED with the results, the surgical team he put together, the care at the hospital, the pain management, and everything else. He was patient with lots of questions, and I couldn't be happier.

Three weeks post-op, and still doing far better than expected. I've not needed narcotics for two weeks, and no OTC pain meds for a week. Keeping up with protein -- LOTS of protein -- has helped enormously. I tire VERY easily, and need 12-16 hours/day of bed rest. But I'm managing on my own for the most part.

OK, about 7 weeks out now. STILL really happy, and back to a full load of activities. Spent 5 days at a training class in California, got back last night, and now I'll spend a week with a client in the Dallas area. I'm still very swollen, especially in my thighs, but my doctor has been pretty good about renewing diuretics prescriptions when asked. I'm still really pushing protein, and trying to get lots of rest. I have started running some, and hope to begin with weights again in the next week or so.
Dallas Plastic Surgeon

Dr Kenkel was recommended by another nationally-known surgeon in dealing with body contouring after massive weight loss. Loved everything except the process of paying -- and that was UT Southwestern's weirdness, and not his. (They made me fill out a form rather than just swiping the credit card. I don't like having my credit card numbers floating around.)
