Tummy Tuck W/ Lipo at Age 39 After 1 Pregnancy - Bal Harbour, FL

I'm so happy I finally decided to do this.......

I'm so happy I finally decided to do this.... after many panic attacks and sleepless nights trying to make up my mind. I was absoultely petrified of the thought of general anasthitia. It has not been an easy process; recovery is MUCH slower than I expected and I've had a few set-backs with infection and constipation, but I'm well on my way to recovery now. For sure, anyone considering a tummy tuck with lipo should plan on staying home for a good month. My energy level has been very low and I get tired/drained very easily. I've had slowly get back into my routine, and 21 days post-op I am at about 50% performance. Good Luck to anyone considering this option!

Terrific results! You wear your new belly well! Keep up the good healing, keep us posted with your story and picks!

So, I'm almost at my 1 month post-op mark and I feel good. Still have a lot of swelling concentrated on my lower abdomen and pelvi area. Still can not stand up 100% yet because the belly weight drags me down. My back and flanks are still tender and swollen from the lipo, but it doesn't hurt at all unless touched. I still get tired easily, but I force myself to walk as much as possible during the day. By about 4pm I'm drained and ready to call it a day.

Today marks my one month post-op!!!!!!! and I can finally walk straight-up. Still have enough swelling not to be able to fit into my jeans yet. Yesterday I got another 100 cc's of fluid drained from my lower abdomen and I feel better. I hope the swelling goes away soon....I want to enjoy my new figure and wear normal clothes again. I've been limited to dresses and sweatpants.

You look great, i woukd love to see ur final result. Good luck

I hit my 2 month post-op mark and I feel GREAT! I still have lower swelling but I do fit into my jeans now. My lipo areas are still very tender but my hip-to-hip cut is painless. I'm so happy I went through with it! I can't wait for all the swelling to go away so that I can see the final results.

Wondering How your doing with tummy
