2 months post op! Tummy Tuck, Breast Lift and Lipo - Dallas, TX

I'm a 34 yr. old mom of 2 boys. I am 5'5" and 168 lbs.(which i havent been at since high school). My heaviest weight was around 225lbs. at the end of each pregnancy. I have wanted a mommy makeover for several years now and decided to try to get into the best shape beforehand. I have been working 3-4 days a week doing HIT training and lifting weights for over a year now, as well as watching what I eat. I went for my consultation on Nov.5 and scheduled my surgery for Jan. 29, 2013. I am having a full tt with muscle repair, breast lift and lipo of inner thighs. I am using a doctor that several of my friends have used and feel very comfortable with him. I am very excited, yet nervous at the same time!

One week from today! Excited and nervous! I'm busy getting my supplies and everything ready. Reclined rented, scripts filled....hope I'm not forgetting anything! Wish me luck!

I cant believe its here! I am so nervous! I'm just worried about the pain and what to expect! At the same time, I cant wait to be on the flat side! Wish me luck!

Well, I'm glad it is finally over! Sorry, I haven't been able to post yet. I had to stay two nights in the hospital because they were having a hard time getting my heart rate to go down. I got to the surgery center around 5:30 am, got marked up etc. Went in around 7:30. I remember the anesthesiologist give me a shot and that was it. Woke up in very little pain.Getting up for the first time hurt like hell! It does get better each time though. I am now resting at home. Have to see PS on Monday to remove drain. PS says he removed 4lbs. of skin and about 18 lbs. of fat! CRAZY! Hope everyone is healing well!

Today has been so much easier! Only taking one...

Today has been so much easier! Only taking one percocet every 6 hrs and a valium in between if needed. Had first bm yesterday and it wasnt bad at all. It was kind of an ordeal to shower last night. I got very dizzy and thought I was going to faint. Took several minutes of sitting with a cold rag on my neck and DH fanning me before it stopped. Then afterwards, I got the shakes really bad.My teeth were chattering and my back was spasming alot. DH called PS and he said it was pretty normal. Sometimes the warm water really wakes up the blood vessels. No kidding! Hope that doesnt happen again. I have my first po appt tomorrow to remove drain. Cant wait for this thing to be gone! Hope everyone is doing well!

Well I survived week one! Feeling like a new person today. Had first po appt yesterday and had drain removed...didnt feel a thing! I was so worried I was going to get lightheaded. Pain is pretty minimal. Only taking percocet at night now when I go to sleep. It gets better every day! Happy healing everybody!

2 wks post op today! Not too much to report. Not feeling much different from 1 wk post op. Minimal pain. Very stiff and hunched over when I first get up but get straighter the more I move around. Every day gets a little easier! Hope everyones doing great!

Had appt. with PS yesterday. He removed all tape and told me to start massaging all my scars. I have a small opening in my incisions under each breast, but he said that is normal and showed me how to put a dressing on those until they heal. I can take my binder off at night to sleep now and just wear it during the day. Im going back to work tomorrow, so hopefully everything goes okay with that. Moving right along!

Finally feeling like a human being again! Im back...

Finally feeling like a human being again! Im back at work full time and slowly easing back into the gym. Breast incision openings have closed and all scars are healing nicely. No longer have to wear binder but I do wear it at work. Lipo areas still get really tightened up and are still sore. Very happy with my results so far!

I chose a doctor that has performed surgery on several of my friends and they are very happy with their results. I immediately felt comfortable with him and happy with my choice.
