Hey everyone today is p.o day 2 im finally home. on my way home from the hospital was hell smh the bumps were to much and getting in and out the car was trouble. I had to walk up five steps to get in my house and that was painful. Im laying in my recliner and waiting till ten to take my pain meds. All I can say stay on top of your meds and walk around your place for a bit. Btw coughing and laughing is also painful. Oo and you will definetly need someone or two or three lol to help you.:) gnite ladies till tomorrow

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?

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. :)

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 zabette. I am doing great thanks for checking up on me :) i need to post more pics maybe tonight i will.. how are you? are you still getting your tt??

Hi evavelez:) so glad you are doing well! I'd love to see more pics!! I had my consult at lenox hill on wed. Saw a resident who seemed very capable. I wasn't impressed with his bedside manner, but I wasn't unimpressed either... Just felt kind of neutral about him. He is looking into dates for me at the end of May (he has to get a supervising surgeon to commit to a date before he can book anything). I'm really excited, but also wondering if I should go to a few more consults... I'm curious, did you go to a few? Did you see a fellow or a resident and did you see any before/ after pics? I really want this, but I don't want to rush into anything and live to regret it later...

Hi zabette. I did get a consult before i went to lenox hill but they quoted me 10,000. So when i found out about lenox hill n the price. I decided to stick with them. I didnt see any before n after pics. I felt very comfortable with the fellow her name is Dr. Burrell she is great n told me she was gonna make me look great. I just took her word. And everything went great im glad i did it.. im sure you will be fine just go thru it.. who is the attending thats going to be with the resident?? mines was Dr. Schulman i looked him up n his work is great.
  • Reply
I'm not sure who the attending will be yet. The surgeon Said that he has to see who is available. I am starting to feel a little more brave! Hoping to go through with it soon!

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.
