Good morning everyone today is p.o day 3 I had to stop taking the percocets I was really feeling like crap being on them. Pressure keep dropping and feeling dizzy. Now im just on tylenol dont feel much pain only when I get in and out of bed. And the lipo on my flanks bothers a bit. All I do is sleep most of the time it sucks cuz when I get out of bed my body hurts its uncomfortable. My drains are ok the lowest cc's I had was 7.5. Other then that im ok. Hope everyone else is doing good. Ttyl :)

Happy friday everyone. Hope my febuary ttuck girls are healing great. Im p.o.day 9 only have back pain that wont go away. Does anyone knows how long it takes for us to stand straight?? its painful to try to stand straight. A friend of mines recomended for me to get massages that it would help. Has anyone heard of getting special massages for tt?


brand spanking new here- I live in St. Louis, MO. Any ideas on where to get TT with lipo on abs and flanks? All consults have been $8-$13k. I see here tons of ladies at $4k-$6k. I saved the cash and now its sooo much more expensive then I thaught. I am willing to travel if it makes sense financially and it is save.

Hi jloeffel my surgery was done in lenox hill hospital the reason why I paid that price is because the Dr thats doing the surgery is the fellow that needs further teaching under close observation by the attending.
Do you live in the area? I'm considering it but in not sure how I'd travel with recovery and all.

Hope everyone is healing good. Im P.O DAY 20 and...

Hope everyone is healing good. Im P.O DAY 20 and feeling good. Im still swollen. Does anyone know how long it takes for the swell to go down?? Today was my first day back at work i work a 7-3 shift office job. But did lots of runing around today. By 3pm I was beat my
back was killing me. miss taking my naps
during the day. So far my incision still burns a
bit from time to time. I started putting
merderma on it. My belly button still have ink
from when the surgeon marked me before my
surgery I tried dial soap to remove it didnt
work alcohol didnt work I even tried makeup
remover didnt work. Any ideas what would
work to remove the ink?? Gnite everyone to all the ladies that had the surgery happy healing. To all the ladies upcoming surgery wish ya the best. :)

button looks good but still feels hard around it.


You paid a good price for your surgery, and you look good Hun! I hope you are healing good, I'd like to see more pictures! I keep looking for a lower price so I stumbled on your page. But I did find a PS in Pennsylvania who has some good prices! He charges $3000 for the surgical fee for the tummy tuck, plus another $1200-2100 for the hospital and anesthesia fee. If you want to add lipo, it's just another $1000. This is for anyone who is looking for a plastic surgeon who is skilled and affordable.

Hi evavelez:) haven't seen you on here in a while, just wanted to see how you are feeling? Hope you are recovering well!
