No Pain

It's been almost 3 day since I had surgery. Dra Robles and her team rock. I can't post any photos yet. I have only seen my scar twice. Today I had an issue with my drain. I was able to make an appt with Dra. Robles in the morning. I am so happy that Dra. Robles gave me a tummy tuck. The hospital staff was great. My mom stayed with me in the hospital.

Tummy Tuck 90% Recovered

I feel 90% recovered. I am waiting to find out if my drains can be removed. My bruising is almost Gone. I was able to go to the grocery store today. After coming home I had to lay down with my feet leveled. I still have 10 more days before I go back home. Dra Robles and her team are wonderful.

What all are you having done for that price

Drain update

I been at Dra Robles office for my follow ups. She is happy about my recovery. My drains will be left behind. My legs and feet become swollen sometimes. The compression socks always work. Drinking a lot of liquids will leave your drain in the DR. I graduated from a XL to a Medium faja. I love my new belly button.

Fajas

I ended up buying 2 fajas brand Mediform. The company is about 5 minutes fom my home in the DR. His prices are reasonable and he will make alterations. I decided to buy a large and a medium for later.

One side bigger

Today is 1 month since my surgery. I went from 173 lbs to 164. I am using a medium to almost a small faja. I notice that one of my sides is bigger. I am not eating anything greasy, because it makes me sick. Is there anyone else with the same results.

Weird feeling today. My stomach muscles started contracting when I was working. I felt no pain. I guess tummy muscles are awaking.

I believe some of dr Robles patients go to Angela spa in NYC. You should contact Laura and ask her.

Hi Yolanda1974, first I would like to say you look amazing! Had a question. I had my tummy tuck with Dr. Robles 4 months ago and is still swollen under my belly button. When did all your swelling go down in that spot? I have been concerned about it. You look really flat.
  • Reply
Thank you It took a while for it to flatten. I use my faja everyday. I cut down drinking whole milk and started drinking almond milk and more water.Maybe the faja is not tight enough.

I picked a great doctor who makes sure her patients health comes first. I am glad I will have my turn in a few weeks.
