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.

Had surgery June 16, should have drains removed tomorrow! I'm anxious to see more of the results!

I go in for my post op appt today, hoping to get the drains removed and finally see my new tummy after the twins! Will post after photos with measurements.

I never posted my before measurements...here they are (this is embarrassing!):
height- 5'4"
weight- 198 :(
waist- 33"
hips- 45"
thighs- 27" (both right and left)

I had full tummy tuck June 16; lipo to the flanks and inner and outer thighs. Doc said he removed just under 5 liters! That's 2.2 lbs per liter, almost 11 lbs! WOW!!
Doctor says 4-8 weeks for 90% of swelling to subside. I'm finding that patience is harder than anything!

My twins turned a year old and it was so very hard not to be able to pick them up and play! I was able to get on the floor and had hugs galore from them both though which helped! Each day is getting better!

So for all those who live in Florida or a hot humid place....a tummy tuck in June is probably not the best idea! Swelling, with compression garment and ab binder....ridiculously hot!!

12 days post op...just had final stitches around my belly button removed! Been off pain meds for over 4 days now, just tylenol. Was back to work 8 days post op....I recommend taking a bit more time off. I've been really sore especially in the thighs after the lipo, thought I was turning into barney! My entire outer thighs were so bruised and a deep purple color!

Loving my results more each day! I was really disappointed initially; swollen, sore bruised, but now I am amazed, my self confidence is growing with every day. I think the reality of it hit me when I saw my butt imprint on the sofa...it was sooooooo much smaller and defined! Maybe that's a weird way to realize it, but it helped me! Waiting to post more recent pics till some more of the swelling subsides, but I'm unfortunately unable to take it easy!

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

Two weeks post op! Major question though....any ladies out there who had lipo to the flanks notice a lack of symmetry in your hips? Just hoping its the swelling going down differently and not permanent!

I am 3.5 weeks post op, the lipo suction I think did the most damage/swelling. Bruising is almost visibly gone, but I still feel terribly sore in all the areas. My tummy is looking better and better, my thighs, I know will always be big, but the shape they are taking is much more appealing!

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
Still a lot of swelling, but I think the measurements help me...I know its about the improved contours, but I still measure...

6 weeks post op...feeling good. Still get very swollen at the end of the day. Had some stitches work themselves out of the incision, just now healing up.
