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!
