Day 1- post op tummy tuck.
One week post op tummy tuck
Before I had the surgery I watched a lot of YouTube videos of women and their journeys with a tummy tuck. Some women were really helpful and inspiring, others seemed like crybabies! I've honestly have had very little pain with the procedure. Day one post op and day two were the most trying. I had pain but not with the surgery itself, mostly from the bandages irritating my skin and my lower back was killing me for walking hunched over. I did however have a pain pump that lasted about three days so I'm not sure if that's why my pain was minimal or if my surgeon is just that good. :)
I've got recent pics to share, in them I am still very swollen and have more bruising now then I did one day post op mostly because I bruise very very easily!! A lot of my bruising has changed to the yellow-jaundice looking color so that's why my skin looks yellow. The white line on my abdomen above my dressings is from my camera. Just with the lighting and the yellow skin I don't know for some reason it kept showing up but in person there is no white line. I also took a picture of my scar. I think it looks great for one week post op. Hope everyone is doing well and recovery nicely. Loves!! :)
3 weeks post op!
Great doctor. He did my gel silicone implants in 2010 and I couldn't be happier! He was very friendly, informative, and professional. Great bedside manner. Very friendly and informative staff! Very clean and inviting office. Definitely recommend him!
