Tummy Tuck and Lipo to the Flanks - Langhorne, PA

I'm 35 have two kids ages 6 and 3. Two c-sections...

I'm 35 have two kids ages 6 and 3. Two c-sections leaving a disastrous belly I decided to do it. Weight at surgery date was 132lbs. I'm two days postop and I'm very very sore. Here's a picture of before. I am pretty much just sitting in my recliner. I am sore and tight. Pain meds help. I will not be able to see my belly till next sat. God I hope it looks good.

10 days post op and Super happy

I am ecstatic. I look better 10 days postop then I did before I had kids. I am so happy.

Before and after

16 days post op

Feeling better, less sore but wow do I get swollen. Went back to work yesterday and I really didn't realize how weak I was until I got to work. Sitting was hard and uncomfortable. I should have took 3 weeks off. Sleeping is getting easier and I am starting to sleep on my side. Can't wait to be 100%.

30 days post tummy tuck/lipo

Survived! Feel really good. I get swelled up as the day goes on and it is still numb and sore where the lipo was done.
Dr. Benjamin Lam

I am completely satisfied by my results. I look better 10 days post op then I did before I had children. This doctor is amazing. My scar is super thin. I would do it all over again.

When I was at the hospital I had an anxiety attack when I was waiting. They had to give me oxygen. Lol. I freaked out. Then when I came too I cursed out the nurse because I had a hardtime walking. I kept nodding out from all the anesthesia that the nurse wanted to put a depends on me. I yelled so loud your not putting an f#### diaper on me. Haha. You can do it. I did it I'm fine walking. One more week I should be good. Go back to work this friday

Ty pain really bites. It is way different. The only good thing is that your not bleeding like a c sect. Really though the pain is much better. I just want the tubed out and to be able to poop. Sorry tmi but that has been my biggest issue. I can't wait to see how it looks!!!!

Your right. I'm sore all around but my back and sides are hurting the most. Today is day is 6 day post op. I am much better today. More emotional because I can't do much. I want these drains out. !!
  • Reply
I know what u mean. The drains drove me mad. I was emotional around that time too. I cried because I felt helpless. It will pass. Happ healing

  • Reply
I needed help getting in and out. Today I can do it myself. Except for the am. I'm very stiff in the morning.
  • Reply
Do u have an extended TT? Hope u heal fast
  • Reply
Just a regular recliner. Today I'm much mor mobile. Still sore. Yes had an extended. I'm hoping my stretch marks are gone. These drains are annoying. I really just wish I could go to the bathroom normally. Feel all bruised up but I'm just praying it was worth it.
