I decided i 2009 that i wanted to get something done to make me feel more confident with my body. When i went for my conceltaion in December of 2009 My doctor said that she recomended a tummy tuck, however i was scard of the scar that comes with a tummy tuck so i went for the Lipo.
The problem with lipo is when u get lipo in certin spots the rest of your body doesn't match up with those areas. I had lipo of the lower back, stomach and flanks But it still left areas that needed attention. I concidered going back and taking care of those areas but when i looked in the mirror i relized that even with those areas takin care of i still had saggy skin and rolls of skin when i sat down which i was not happy with. So in December of 2010 i went back for conceltaion #2.
I schedualed my appointment to have a tummy tuck with no muscle repair for Febuary 7th, a year exactly from my first proceedure.
When i got there i was not so nervouse as i was the first time because i was very comfortable with my doctor and trusted her very much. After surgery i went home which my have not been the best decision because i wound up passing out because my blood pressure droped and i wound up in the hospital anyway. If i was to do it again i would take the after care. It cost more money but it is worth it. The first couple day i slept a lot. The pain was not unbarable it was more uncomfortable than anything. Your stomach is actuall very numb and belly button is completly numb i still have had no sensation in it. I can honestly say that the worst part of the whole experiance is the drains, They are annoying for the most part but also very uncomfortable and they are the reason you can not shower ( That was awful!!!)
Not to mention carring a bloody ball around with u is pretty embarrassing.
A lot of people talk about the straighting of there bodies after surgery. I was standing up straight pretty quickly. It felt funny but it didnt hurt to stand up straight and the more you do it that faster you you get use to it. It still feels funny to a certin degree but it doesn't hurt even tho sometime, due to the nerves repairing themselve i sometime get a sharp pain when i stand up to quickly.
Tommorrow is my 2 week appointment and i am praying they take this drain out bcause i am ready to get back to work, i feel great still a little sore but ready to go!! I can't wait till i can get in the gym and get this show on the road.
I will add photos of the tummy tuck when the...
