Tummy Tuck/No Liposuction - Miami, FL

The first moments after surgery on 03/2011...

The first moments after surgery on 03/2011 was'nt bad at all. If you count in the fact that I left my pain medication at home it really was okay. The thing about my tuck is that not having lipo left me with huge flanks. This makes me very unhappy. I was really in bad shape before the surgery i lost over 40 pounds and needed the work.

My expectations I believe to be very realistic, especially after reviewing tons of before and after photo's similiar to my body type. I am fortunate, but depressed none the less, since I still appear uneven. Sometimes i can't function properly I only think of this surgery not going the way I planned, but look to the future. Sorry no before pictures

My surgery did wonders for me. It has opened my mind to the stretch of Cosmetic surgery benefits. I would do it again in a heart beat and i will. Talk to your surgeon and make sure both of you are on the same page.

Thank you for posting and sharing your journey with RealSelf.

I am sorry that you are unhappy and things did not turn out the way you expected or wanted.  That would be hard to deal with:(

Have you gone back and talked to the doctor to see if there is anything he can do to improve your result?

Hi, Kimmers25 I haven't been back to my PS, since april. I'm just, so depressed It's been hard for to me function. I am so embrassed that my tuck didnt go as i expected. My PS refused to do liposuction on my flanks or back. Without lipo I will continue to have this noticable space between where my lower tummy meets my pelvic bone. Just the though bring tears to my eyes. I will schedule with him soon!
