After having my daughter later in life I found my body (skin) didn't bounce back as before. Despite running twenty miles a week and working out with weights three times a week -- the extra skin would;t budge. And neither did the tummy pouf. Breasts? Deflated. So after much thought I decided to go ahead and get this done now.

Worried about being under GA and what recovery period will be like. Hope I can move around by myself after a week, just to get to the bathroom and back to my recliner.

Hi. I haven't taken anything for swelling. I'd say it's adding about 1.5 to 2 inches to my belly and I imagine this last bit will take months and months to get rid of. How are you doing?

Hi busymom! Thanks for helping me out! I tried to respond back to you via the July tummy tucker's forum but had problems. So do you like your results after being 18 days po? You have no regrets?

No regrets as to how it looks now and I know it will get better as all swelling subsides.
