I am a 31 year old mother with two kids , was 260# now down to 172. I'm 5"8. Wanted to have a tummy tuck for years, but couldn't afforded it. I'm doing this as a gift to myself for graduating nursing school. Hopefully it will lift my self eastern enough to lose 15 more lbs. Today is day 1 post op and pain has been mild, just a burning sensation in my stomach. Don't feel any pain in arms at all. So far so good.

I went to dr a day early to get ABD binder removed due to itching and redness. I was having a reaction to the adhesive tape on my incision. This is my first look at my stomach and arms. It is a big improvement and I hope it gets better.

I feel good, I can walk around with no problems. I'm very happy with the results of my arms but not so sure about stomach yet. I don't want to judge it to soon. It looks a lot better then my before picture that's for sure.
Day 7 po
I forgot to put before and after pics of my arms. I also wanted to let everyone know that your stomach does change in appearance everyday. I really like what I see today :)
