70 & Going for It - Latham, NY

I just turned 70 and have been thinking about this...

I just turned 70 and have been thinking about this surgery forever! My surgery date is April 24th, and I am also having implants exchanged at that time. I am a cancer survivor and had issues with the implants I had a few yrs ago, so need to exchange them. So I am a little nervous and excited at the same time. So many things to get myself ready for this. Love this site, it is so encouraging & helpful to read everyone's experiences.

33 Day PO Tummy Tuck

It's been not quite five weeks since my Tummy Tuck and Implant exchange (due to horrible implants & leakage. I had Breast cancer in 1988, and decided to have the TT done now at the same time as the implant exchange.. I had three children who were big babies, one weighing 9. 4, .so that streched me out considerably, and over the yrs the the muscles just gave completely out, even though i excercise at a gym,. Nothing would help the muffin top and pregnancy look.
On April 23 I had my TT and implant exchange and am still recovering from the surgery. I will say the first few days, was the worst, although i still have bad days with the swelling, and pressure i feel when walking a lot. I am told the swelling can last for months.
I am still mending but see a difference and time will show more when swelling subsides. I still can not wear my cappree's that i wore before that button, and jeans are still tight. I did take off about 5#' and trying to lose more to help the situation. I also need to move from the binder to the next stage of spanx type garment. My PS was great, with yrs of experience behind him. My very kind, understanding, compassionate.
I am happy with the results, and thinking in time it will get even better once I start back working out.
