I haven't done anything yet I'm looking @ Robles...

I haven't done anything yet I'm looking @ Robles yily and salma. I'm really scared to go out of the states. I've Been on this site now feeling a little more comfy the ladies on here r soo nice I've Been a Buggaboo asking soo many ?'s I haven't done any thing yet still tring to decide what doctor please help

Want to make the right choice

Im soo ready for this tummy to b flat I'm confused what to yily Robles or almonte I'm hearing a lot about each 1 but which is goin to give me the look I desire ugh that's the annoying part idk well this is why I'm on rs to get help from u ladies

Ugh

I was jus told that I will pay the same price in the states becuz I have to pay for passport and plane ticket and rh has any1 felt this way

Already scared to death

I'm already having a hard time with goin to dr and I have to read this. Reply: There are way 2 many horror stories as people flock to these docs. I just understand why people take chances going to these mills. When there is no ccs limit docs go crazy which causes people to get transfusions and all that. Only in DR can you have to lipo tt book job and bbl at the same time. All that sx in one sitting is ILLEGAL in the US. Really we become desperate to......

What is tummy tuck recovery generally like? If I get it done, what can I expect post-op care, checkups, pain? How long does complete recovery from a tummy tuck take

Answer

hank you for your question. I have always been an advocate for performing full tummy tuck procedures as it corrects the upper/lower abdominal skin looseness, the muscle weakness from having children or losing weight, the side contour of the abdomen, and overall skin tightness and flatness of the abdomen post operatively. It does come with some downtime though and depending on your job or interests you may need to take two to three weeks off. The typical post operative follow up care at my office is designed to assist you and confirm you are doing well. Follow up is on post operative day one, then one week, two weeks, and when the drains are removed I will see you more frequently to assess if any fluid retention is occurring. Post operative discomfort will vary from patient to patient. Some suggest it consists of significant discomfort, others feel just the opposite. Complete recovery where you can get back to a full exercise routine will depend on your post operative course but can be as little as two months and as long as 3-4 months. Hope this helps

Girl I feel you on the bottom tummy part! I'm going through the same thing. And I have a lot of loose skin still. I thought after the tummy tuck I was going to be able to sit down and have an absolute flat tummy, and when I bend over too :( disappointing. Maybe it's still swelling. Have you started exercising yet? Maybe it will help :/ sorry your feeling down! You look amazing regardless!

Thank u soo much sweetie Mann this suck and I will start back working out ASAP I feel the same way u do but on the bottom still feels hard ugh how many months po r u have started workingout @jds823
  • Reply
That's how mines feels too.. Some days it's better than others and it looks less bulgy but I still feel like it shouldn't look like that. I'm only 7 weeks post op so I know I have to be more patient but I've seen soo many other girls with less weeks than me with flatter tummys so i don't kno. And I've started walking and doing the elliptical but still no running because it feels like I'm being beaten up when I run.
