I had my TT with Lipo and lipo on my upper and lower back this past Wednesday 2/16/2016...I thought that the pain afterwards was going to be unbearable. I was wrong. The hardest part was getting up and moving around because of the medications. I love my doctor, he was very supportive and understanding.

I have my follow up care Monday. I will post before and after pictures..

I went to my follow up today and he said that I look great but I had to keep the drains in because of the amount of stomach that was removed. It was at least 20 pds total. It was 1500 cc lipo that was taken from my upper and lower back. I know that I am going to be swollen for a months. But so far pain is min to none and happy with results.
isnt it great to be almost healed enough to really enjoy your summer clothes? Congrats on your precedure, I can already see your hourglass figure and your stomach looks GREAT!!

Is it normal to have swelling at about 5 weeks...

Is it normal to have swelling at about 5 weeks after my tt. And it more on my right side I thought maybe because I am right handed. Can some please help me. He took off at least 15 pds of stomach and 1500cc of fat from the lipo
Congratulations! When are you going to post some updated photos. I excited to see what you're looking like now.

I am feeling ok. I am experiencing swelling on the upper part of my stomach. I had to go see my ps about it and he said that is was normal and everybody heal differently. I had a lot done and taken off. I guess,the areas where my lipo was done still is sore and swollen. I can't complain Katgirl I am still loving my new look, but I know I have a long way to go. Oh yea my scars are healing beautifully. At first I was worried about the dog ears but the are smoothing out and disappearing. Thanks.....I want to say that you look wonderful. Maybe you can give me some workout tips........ seriously.

So far so good. My PS says my scar looks really amazing. But I do have swelling above my navel which by the way look unreal. I guess I haven't really seen it in the last 10 years,lol. He has released me to start exercising. I really need to start because I have not been having any energy. But I am happy about doing this. I look good in my clothing. But now my breasts look extremely huge lol, oh well I'm not messing with my best-friends well at least not yet.

you look great girl!!

It has been a year since my surgery. I feel great but I have decided to have the gastric sleeve done. I am half way done with my nutrition classes and hopefully I will be having the sleeve done in June or July.
How does your tummy tuck look now? Has the bloating gone away??
