5 days post-op and am so happy I found the courage to do this for me! For years I have had loose skin, stretch marks and a hysterectomy scar.

I decided to take some pics in the morning when things are less swollen just to see if I could see a difference. Let me know what you ladies think?
I'm not liking how my belly button is looking...so I stuffed some rolled up gauze inside it today hoping I can stretch it. It's looking all closed up.

did you know that your scar was going to be so high?

3/24, I really didn't discuss the location of my incision with my ps. But, one of my biggest concerns was to get as much lift as possible in my thighs with the tt. So, I am thinking that may be the reason it's higher.
The incision location not a big deal to me because I don't wear low-cut jeans and have never worn a bikini...although I could wear a two piece now if I wanted to! :)

You probably will want to discuss that with your doc beforehand if you want a really low scar!

I thought the scar was high too...but I know that his scars heal well where you can barely see them. I had a breast aug and mini tuck a few years back from him and you can;t even see the scars from either.

Hey 3boys...thanks, I need all the encouragement I can get.

The only gripe I have is that on my upper thighs where the lipo was done. I have just recently noticed some rippling developing there. I hope it is just some swelling that hasn't settled. Ugh!

I am starting back to work tomorrow on a new job.

I know you have told me a dozen times but when is your surgery?

Time4me I am glad I found someone else whom has noticed the ripple issue with lipo. I am only 12 days post op and I notice on my flanks and back were I had lipo I see ripples clearly!! I mean on the flank its noticeable now, but the back I happen to notice after feeling them on my sides. I am seeing my PS this week and I plan on asking about this. I am sure this in not the final result but I want to know what I can do to help. I message it now hoping that will work on my flank area but I cant do that to my back.

I also go back to work this week, but I still have 1 drain left in. :-( I am hoping to have to removed tomorrow.

Good Luck tomorrow with your new job!

Your results are great i am post op seven days today get drains out on Friday still have not seen how i look except my ass and it is bruised from the lipo on my hips. So far it has not been so bad the first three days are the worse and when you have to walk around bent over your back will kill you. I wish you the best and happy for you.

So glad to hear you are having an easy time! It will just get better & better from here. I remember how anxious I was to get those drains out!
Yay for Friday.
Can't wait to see your post-op pics.

Yes!! I am
so happy and pleased with my results.I am just past 6 wks now and i did heavy duty housecleaning today...hope I'm not too sore and swollen later.

You, btw, look awesome! I just went over and looked at your pics. Very big change for you!! Conrats. My daughter and I had our tt"s on the same day. She too, is a nurse, and went through the same fears as you. I told her not to tell me all the stuff she knows because I didn't want to know too much...I was already scared enough! :)
She is dixietexas is you want to look her up.

Yes, I had some lipo on my flanks and my "saddlebags" too!

I am holding up okay. It was my older brother. We miss him sorely but know that he is in a better place and we will all be together again one day!

I have that on my very long list. :)
How are you holding up? I know your surgery is coming up quickly...excited for you!
