Sleeping bbl, TT and BA
Looking for SX buddy
Something's I found helpful for recovery
- arnica pills (I think helped with my bruising)
- lipo foam it really helps the garment to be tolerable ( provided by some PS)
- moving around to build endurance
- wedges for legs and head for elevation
- stool to get off and on bed
- toilet lift especially if you have multiple surgeries ( I put pressure of seat on the back of thighs and not my butt) this also helped when I felt extremely weak and couldn't bend the first 2 days
** I found being innovative with sleeping arrangements has help with the amount of sleep I got
- will post pictures
Happy Healing !!! Hope this is helpful :)
Noticing that one butt cheek/ hip is a little larger than the other
Butt update 14 days young
Bye Bye Florida :) what an adventure
Time flies it's already 23 days PO
Sleeping is much better I am sleeping on my sides, boobs are a little sore when I wake up so now I came up with putting a rolled up sock in the cleavage which keeps them stable so when I wake up they are not sore :)...
TT is still covered with soft cloth tape and surgical glue underneath I haven't looked yet until sept 29th YEKS... I think Salz is very pre cautious with incisions opening so he wants us to keep support on the incision sites as long as possible...
All pains are slowly subsiding although I have to say the lipo to the flanks and sides of bra roll sides are still very tender at times when any if the kids touch me there I flinch.
I put my husband to work a couple of yrs ago he bought me a huge back hand held massager, in which I stored away and never used till now. He dusted it off and he is using it on my back on low pressure in which I feel like it is breaking up the scar tissue and relaxing my muscles. After he is done I feel very relaxed.
So happy I invested in my self I smile every time I pass a mirror or get out the shower...
By the way my family is not use to seeing me with a butt so they get shocked every time I turn around :) my mother would always start giggling because she is in disbelief and my husband says "damn" ... Feel sorry for him because he can't touch this for 3 more weeks ;) I'm to afraid to damage something, I know TMI ...
Tummy Tuck incision revealed
So I'm the type of person that can look at other peoples incision, surgeries but I freak when it's me. So needless to say I was having a conniption in the bathroom thinking on how to take off the medical tape that was still stuck to the skin. I tried andtugged at it and it was pretty secure, so I went Into the shower And made sure it was soaked and pulled it off slowly. Much easier to get off when wet.
Here are some pictures 30 days after my surgery. Posting some backside pictures as well. If you guys have any ? Feel free to ask.
Feeling about 80% myself, lipo to sides still are sore not excruciating , every know and then boobs get a little sore. Overall getting there slowly and happy with results
Very polite, personable and talented. You can tell he loves his job and it's beyond just the $$$.... When I traveled in the day before surgery for the pre-op, I felt very comfortable. What I found really funny is I had to jiggle ,wiggle and roll down my Spanx in front of him and I felt totally at ease... I literally have stock in spanx.... Dr. Salzhauer is professional and knowledgable in his field but what shines is his personable disposition and experience .
