I had breast augmentation 3 years ago and was completely satisfied so that made my decision to go back for my tummy tuck and lipo. Wonderful caring staff, answered any and all questions and provided much insight on what to expect.

Doctor says 4-8 weeks for 90% of swelling to subside. I'm finding that patience is harder than anything!

Best wishes to all of you going in for surgery soon! The new you will be epic!

Doc said I can lift my twins!!! One at a time of course, they're 25 lbs (1 yr), was told to use my legs more when lifting and not to jerk. Makes sense. Also got the go ahead to do light aerobics, but after walking around work all day I find I am too exhausted to go for a walk! I wish I could have taken more time off...
Well starting day of surgery:
Wt- 198 / now 185
Waist- 33/ now 32
Hips- 45/ now 44
Each thigh- 27/ now 25
