8 day post op pics. Could not be happier!

I have 12 year old twins that stretched my skin beyond repair!! Then had two more single pregnancies on top of that. I have wanted a tt for 12 years but finally got the nerve to book it. I'm very excited, but also very scared. My youngest will be 6 months old when I have the procedure and he is my main focus. I hope I don't have unrealistic expectations as far as recovery goes. I'm hoping to feel pretty good by week two. I love this forum because it is full of information. Everyone's experience is so different, but sooo helpful to ease my nerves.

Hi Deb hope all the best for you on your surgery, I am now 11 days PO, so far so good. I as well have twins so I know how busy you must be. Best of luck. Angelsluv

I'm 3 days po and I must say it is going better than I expected. The first 2 days were horrible because of the anesthesia fog I was in. Today I feel much better. In definitely more awake and can move around a little more. In not that hunched over and I love the feeling of a new flat tummy. I can't wait to heal and wear clothes that I could never wear before!! Good luck to everyone.
You look great!

Today is 1 week post op and I feel great! I'm almost 100%upright and my drains come out tomorrow. I actually managed to stay awake all day yesterday! Personally, I think the worst part of this procedure was the anesthesia coma I was in the first two days. I just couldn't stay awake. The pain is definitely tolerable. If you have had a csection it is similar in the amount of pain however the pain is surprisingly not at the incision. It is in the abs. I'm so excited when I look in the mirror. I used to buy Gap curvy jeans. Now I can get the low rise I used to get when I was 24! I lost 4 lbs and am still swollen. I'm sure I will be back in a size 2 in no time. Can't wait. This was the best thing I've done for myself besides getting married and having kids!:)

It is 8 days since I had my TT. I am beyond thrilled. I am so happy already I can't even imagine in 1 year! I knew there was a waist under all that skin. I work out and lost my pregnancy weight but never looked "fit" because of this skin. My life has changed forever. Thank u dr. Cuber

I am 17 days post op and am feeling better each day. My only complaint is tightness above and to the right of my belly button. I feel more hunched now than I did the first week. In the morning I am totally upright and as the day goes on I'm swollen and hunched. From now on only salads for me!! Aside from that I am very happy. I have jeans on for the first time today and I'm definitely happier. Even though there is still swelling I feel better in them than before TT. I'm just so tired of alternating my vs PINK sweatsuits!!
Do u have a before pic?

Hi, you look great. I have my surgery coming up in February and I also have a baby at home. She will be 10 months old. How r u handling things with the baby? Are you able to lift him? My biggest concern is my baby, not me, lol.

Thanks. Congrats on your upcoming tt! I will be honest recovery is definitely more than I anticipated but definitely doable. My husband stayed home for a week and a half. My ps said I could lift under 20lbs after one week. I know I am probably overdoing it with the lifting but I can't help it. He's only 6 months. I do get very swollen towards the end of the day and have some zings of pain but it is tolerable. I have 4 kids and although it is very hard to sit down or rest, my body tells me that have to. I have a really high pain tolerance and did everything after 3 cesareans but this is different. Not necessarily harder just different. My only advice is to take as much help with the baby as u can. U will definitely need full-time help the first week. Hope this helps. Good luck and feel free to ask me anything. It will be well worth it in the end. Happy mom,happy family!!:)

Had a small procedure done by him and he was meticulous. I was very pleased.
