Had an appt with Dr. Erik Miles, FACS he his office located inside of a hospital was very professional made me feel very comfortable ad confident that he could get the job done, he doesn't like to do lipo with tummy tuck, will do tummy tuck only due to brusing. I just would like to see if anyone else has had work done with him here on this site. If I don't have surgery in the DR with Dra Walkiris Robles , He would be my be my PS of choice here in the charlotte area.

I'm Truly glad I choose Dr. Erik Miles for surgery he's been humble and patient through out this whole process. Staying in the hospital the first night was truly needed I was very sore and in alot pain, thank god I was given a pain pump the staff was really awesome and had a lot of good things to stay about Dr. Miles things I had already seen and felt about him. The first night was not a walk in the park, but each day gets better . Very important to stay on top of Med's. Without my husband and daughter Helping me don't know how I would have made it. I Hope to post more pictures soon!!

Things That you will truly need after surgery once your home:

Hello Beautiful People Today I'm six days post op I have a taste for fried flounder :( I have got to do better ....Just started taking arnica and bromelain supplements as of yesterday I figure what can it hurt! Hopefully on wed my Ps will be taking the drains out and I'll be seeing my navel and scar for the first time Yay! , They maybe I can shop around for a new girdle or some spanx something that will be more comfortable.

7 days post op. A friend came by we went out to lunch, and then we decided to make a Target run , don't know why because once I'm in my shopping zone , I'm like a damn Zombie lol, trying on clothes etc , went there for one thing and came out with something else, I really out did my self today!!! Also I decided to wear a girdle versus the binder given me by my PS to see if that would be more comfortable and it was for a while, but I need to find something that will hold me together why providing comfort because the binder thing I'm so over it, after my husband washed it , it fell apart :( I'm going to tell my PS for 100.00 your gonna have to come better then that LOL!!! One more thing can't wait to start my messages once or twice then I will administer my own. I received My Wahl massager from amazon For 14.95 and let me tell you it is Powerful Yeah Baby!!!!!!! Don't know how long I can keep this blogging Gig up really not my thang you know.. What I like is that we are all here to help one another and I've really learned a lot and hopefully I can help some else down the road with my story :))

8 days post op...Today was my first visit since the surgery with my Ps he said that I'm healing very well. He gave me a new binder which is shorter and feels more comfortable. Finally saw my navel think may have to start the marble trick to make it more round, my scar low and thin but toward the back appears to be thicker I'm not feeling that, I'm so ready to start some scar therapy forgot to ask when can I. But him and my husband both were like sweety this is the beginning and your doing and healing very well Relax !! Also can you say swell hell when will this end??? I must admit I've come along way from where I started which I'm thankful to God for!!! I did get on the scale it said 154 so I've lost 4 pounds can the Church say Amen :)) But Today I Just felt like a fat belly instead of a flat belly I know this too shall pass I must be Patient, worse case scenario I will get lipo of the stomach but hopefully that will not be the case tired of robbing peter to pay Paul lol smh ... Oh and I'm down to one drain the PS said hopefully he'll be removing the 2nd one on Fri and That's All Folks!!!!!! :)

Sex was Great At 3+ Weeks Post :))) . Although I was afraid , also incisions are healing beautifully. My Ps j said to use Vaseline , I use that and Bio Oil although my next purchase will be raw Coco and Shea butter With Aloe Vera . Which I learned from Healthydiva and her scar looks Great!!

5 months post op , and loving it!!

I'm feeling really good trying to watch what I eat , I still wear a girdle because of occasional Bloating especially when I eat. I do plan on getting Lipo on my sides and stomach . I only had a tummy tuck no lipo and the Dr removed 5 pounds if I never get anything else done , I can live with that!!!!

5 month's Post Op

How does your scar look at this point? I am actually scheduled to have a Tummy Tuck with your doctor Dr. Miles in just a few days Wednesday January 22nd 2014. I am getting so nervous and the main thing I'm nervous about is the appearance of the scar outside of the pain of course.

@glamgirly My scar is low and thin. I forget its there way below the bikini line. But everyone is different, I recall him mentioning one client having a keloid so thick he had to do a revision on it. He,s excellent at what he does I would recommend him to anyone! !!! No need to be nervous stay on top of your Meds and you will do just fine. I do have slight dog ears was going to let him do more lipo, BUT saving any extra fat I have for a BBL . I wish he did those too. When I got my surgery at the hospital a few nurses had got there tummy tucks with him. And one particular nurse couldnt wait to get hers and spoke very highly of him.. I lost 10 pounds after the surgery. And its been almost a year, and my confidence level is at an all time High!!!! BEST decision and investment I could have made!!! No worries sweety your in the. Good hands!!! Ill be praying for you please keep me posted..... :)))
