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
