I was only charged $1550 for the mini tt and lipo as he did a 50% reduction for doing the ba redo. I am 3 weeks and 4 days post op and still have severe swelling. It has not gone down since day 1. It looks the same. I'm really depressed about that. But I looked at some photos of a lady that looked similar to me on the before pics and 15 months later she looked exactly how I want to look. My stomach feels a little jiggly when I walk and I hope the swelling is not a seroma. I did not have much drainage over the 5 days I had it. 25cc, 20cc, 15cc, 12cc, and then 7cc and they took it out. Oh how I hated the drain. It pinched terribly and it was the worse pain I've ever felt. Wanted to rip the drain out. Told the doc I would take it out at day 5 if he didn't! I see him on thursday 5/31/12, 1 month followup. I had my surgery on 4/31/12. If anyone had a mini tt with flank lipo and they looked like me at 3 1/2 weeks and now look great I would really appreciate some encouragement and some pics! Please!

I am 52 1/2 years old so the swelling will take longer to go away. If not we will lipo the rest out in 6 months.
I will post my BEFORE pictures when he gives them to me in 3 1/2 weeks. I forgot to take any, so I'll have to get them from him.

He is great. If I don't get the results I want it is because I did not want a full tt and muscle repair and insisted on this. Time will tell on the results. He and his staff are exceptional!
