All for Me ! - Mesa, AZ

I am so nervous ! I am a week away from procedure...

I am so nervous ! I am a week away from procedure today. . Trying to get everything ready so I am as confortable as possible... I will update with a picture soo and new pics after surgery... and helpful information would be appreciated I am doin this procedure for myself. I have two children 10 and 11 years old and I have lost about 86 pounds. I have been wanting a tummy tuck for three years and finally have the money to do it now ;) I just want to be comfortable in my own skin and be comfortable in a swim suite which I have not felt in 12 years... ;)

Hi there! I am 2 days post op! Your results will be amazing! I still haven't seen my scars yet I think I will today as I am going I get new dressings on and some laser treatment for quicker healing. The recover is hard for the first 2 days... I am starting to find it's getting easier now and I can walk a little more ( hunched over though) I have 2 babies at home and I have had my surgery away from home & I don't go back till next Wednesday. Hopefully that hives me time to heal but I'm lucky I have my family nearby who are looking after the children along with my husband to be. Any questions u have please ask! I advised lots of pillows after surgery so u can sit yourself propped up to sleep or a reclining bed. Good luck x

Thank you ! How was the first day home ? Im scared to wake up and the drive home.. I am thankful my kids are older. My boyfriend, daughter, and mother will be by my side as much as they can but there will always be someone with me... I have my recliner all ready and pillows so I can go back and forth... I havent heard about the laser treatment . Let me know how that goes ?

Will let you know honey. I stayed one night in hospital and if you can I would advise you do. The first 24 hours are hell. However I am finding it much easier today... Everyday gets better... I'll get back to you later after laser xxx

Hi again! Been to my laser appointment and saw my scars and belly button... So depressing! I think they look horrible! I will post later a photo on my review so people can see and tell me if it's normal! The laser was fine and didn't hurt... Just a little warm....but fine. I made the mistake of stopping for dinner at a restaurant and I over did it! My scar is now hurting a lot! What ever you do just rest as much as possible! Xxx
