Ready to Get my Body Back...- Fort Lauderdale, FL

Hey everyone, I'm 20 years old. I had my first son...

Hey everyone, I'm 20 years old. I had my first son 3 months ago, he's the best thing that ever happened to me. But unfortunately during my pregnancy I gained 65 pounds out of being greedy lol. (it's not really funny:/ ) I was 124 before my pregnancy now I am 175, (wtf). I hate how I look, and how I feel about myself. I hate to admitt it but I'm so insecure now. I used to be on top of everything but now it seems like everything is on top of me. I hate looking at myself in the mirror. My boyfriend doesn't mention my weight, he acts like its okay. He doesn't want me to do the surgery but he doesn't understand how I feel. I really don't want anymore kids, I wasnt ready for my son but he's here and I love him to death. But here I am now 175 and insecure... I'm doing a TT in a couple days, 03/11/13... I'm scared as hell but they say it's a piece of cake compared to my c-section... After I have this surgery I'm keeping my figure, a lot people gain weight after (witch is crazy). But not me I'm to conscious of my weight... I pray everything goes well and I get my body back... (or close to it)...

Crap I got my dates mixed up I'm doing my tt on...

Crap I got my dates mixed up I'm doing my tt on Tuesday 03\12\13 I guess I was to excited. Anyways until then I'll update you guys...

Okay I'm soooo nervous......... I go in at 8:30a.m...

Okay I'm soooo nervous......... I go in at 8:30a.m tomorrow, I hope everything goes good... I will update as soon as Im drug free lol....

Helllllooooooo!!!!!! I did it, and I feel great....

Helllllooooooo!!!!!! I did it, and I feel great. Pain killers are my best friend at this point. It actually did go better than my c-section but everybody do heal different. Today is actually the day after my surgery and I can stand straight with my meds only. I went to go see the doctor and he said wow you look good for someone who just did surgery. Honestly my results are exactly what I wanted, I'm thin again. I have drains on each side but they do not bother me, march 20th they are coming out. I'm going to post some pictures soon. Only thing is I can't see my scar yet because it all covered up in tape but I hope it heals good. Update you guys in a couple of days. ;)

I'm feeling a lot better, I stop taking my pain...

I'm feeling a lot better, I stop taking my pain meds, it's really more uncomfortable than pain I would say. But I got Bruising on both sides of my hips from the lipo that hurts a lil... I can't wait for these drains to come off so I can start wearing normal clothes... 03/20 they come off. Other than that I'm still swollen on both sides and on top of my stomach... I was everybody test dummy, now my mom and friends want to get there's done... If I had advice for someone I would say lose as much weight first then do it... You want the best outcome possible and you will not get it if your 180plus, unless your thick in all the right places...

Hey guy im at my ps office going to get my drains...

Hey guy im at my ps office going to get my drains removed. Thank god!!!!!! he said it doesnt hurt.. I get to wear normal clothes Again. i have to come back in 2weeks for the tape to come off... Other than im back to work tonight... Ugh lol update u later...

Does anyone know about a silicone gel strip that can be used for scars after tummy tuck? I think its called Cimeosil (gel sheet). has anyone heard or used this on their scar and how did you find it??

I'm glad your surgery went so well. I'm just curious as to what hospital you had your surgery in as it sounds like when you wrote "I went to go see doctor"it sounds like you were discharged the day after your surgery because if you were still in hospital bed day after surgery the doctor would of come to you in your bed. Maybe i just misunderstood what you wrote. I also remember my surgeon explaining to me that the day day after surgery when i had to get out of bed to go for little walk even if i wanted to stand straight (not that i could) he told me not to stand straight because of all the stiches etc..we are talking day after major surgery here...You must be doing very well to be standing straight upright the day after a full tummy tuck..Is Thomas A Payne your surgeon?

Yes he is, but I was discharged 6 hours after surgery... I had to come in the next day for a check up and next week they take my drains out. I never stayed in a hospital...

O and yes I can stand straight up with my meds but trust me without them ill be cripple...

Look i'm sorry but i find that hard to take in that any surgeon would discharge a patient that has had a full tummy tuck 6 hours after surgery..What was your surgeon thinking?
  • Reply
You must be confused a lot of surgeon does this... I'm in south florida mayb its different where you are... but call him and confirm yourself lol I tell you no lie..:-)

My surgeon released me four hours later. It's standard to do that really. Most plastic surgeons don't require overnight hospital stays

I'm surprised they will give you a TT so soon after giving birth. To get the best results from a TT you should be in VERY good shape, this will also help the healing process. I worked out hard for 1 year prior to my TT, i'm 6 weeks post op and am still sore and I can't lift too much, even rolling over in bed is difficult. Its the most intense plastic surgery there is. I wish you good luck, its a long hard road to recovery.
