I had a tummy tuck done with lipo in the stomach...
- 4 Apr 2012
I had a tummy tuck done with lipo in the stomach and hips. I am 3 weeks post op today and so pleased, who knew my stomach could look almost normal again! It was awful, I am just 22 and have two babies and my stomach was a mess! Now I feel great! Not like i wanna walk around in a bikini yet, but good.
Surgery was over, iwasnt in too much pain, most of my pain was 1 week post op. Then its off n on. It is in stages, 1 week was swelling pain, 2 weeks was muscle pain, and more recently it was more so incision irritation. I find that wearing "spanx" from 2 weeks on, works better. The binder constantly rides upward and then would rub where i was cut. Anyways, so far so great. My only complaint is my hips dont look much better, but my dr and I will discuss that at my 6 week appt!
My doctor is very honest, he told me my scar would be bad at first, told me it will be higher than my underwear so ill need to get new ones and such. Most doctors do not care about these things and just get you in there. My first time meeting my doctor, he suggested just lipo and no tummy tuck. To save my money and all, after i had another baby though it was time for a tummy tuck. He is very honest, great bedside manner, my only negative, i havent met with him since surgery, i dont until 6 weeks. I think they should change that and make it a little more personalized.
