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.

Hello how are you just coming through to show you some love on your page are you going to show any after pics? How did your procedure go are you satisfied with your results????
Hello I'm Very Happy with my results at this point, I've come a long way no more kangaroo Pouch for me :)))) I Would like to post some pix's I plan on it. As far as my before pictures I'm still having a hard time dealing with it , That bad boy Hideous !!!!! I do realize it takes a lot of courage.

I'm Truly glad I choose Dr. Erik Miles for surgery...

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!!

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 :))
Hi I had my TT with lipo on the 4th and you're right there is bruising. My ps said he likes to do it with lipo because it gets better results. I'm healing pretty well too. My left side is uber swollen so its really sore my right isn't so bad. My tummy is flat. I still haven't had a bm :( you're pics look great!
Thanks Finally on the flat side!!! How's your healing coming along ? I'm more swollen on my right side. But both sides are swollen can wait for it to go down :))
Both if my sides are still swollen too I wonder how long it's going to take to go down I have a doctors appointment tomorrow I will ask him they swollen bad to where he did the lipo of the flanks!

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!!!!!! :)
You're looking fantastic!!
Thank You Anewmesoon can't wait to follow your journey :)
He did lipo of the flanks only. and he said no to wearing anything else besides the 2 binders he gave me.
