After having 2 daughters and gaining 65 lbs I decided to have a tummy tuck. However, over the last 10 years and maybe going to about 6 consultants, they always changed my mind. So finally I did it.
When I woke up in recovery I was miserable. I'm seven weeks post op and not sure why I have gained so many inches in my waist, hips and thighs. I have not yet seen any results.
The pros I guess are my flat tummy and less stretch marks. The cons would be uncomfortable and recovery is longer than anticipated. A lot of tugs,pulls, and pinches. Swelling is horrible.
I guess I could say that if I had 4 months off, it would be worth it. But going back to a physical job at 6 weeks is hardly worth it. I'm miserable every day holding on to my stomach because of the tightness, pulls and tugs.
Every day I come home and sleep because I'm so drained. At this point, I'm just waiting for time to pass and hope for the best.
