Tummy Tuck Revesion - Newport Beach, CA

I am a very small frame 132lb 52 yerass old woman. I had a bad tummy tuck done in 1996 with a horizontal scar and a deformed belly button.
After some post menopausal weight gain in the last year in addition to my scoliosis, it looked like I was 6 months pregnant all the way from below the breast, more so on my left side.all efforts to use spanx and hide it did not go well and I am just a size 2 in pants but had to buy dresses in 6 or 8 just to hide my tummy. After comments from my new 2nd husband, I decided to do it and correct the tummy muscles.
Its only been 13 days ago and I am still very uncomfortable, tired and moody.. I know the end result wil be good, but do not have the patience till I get back to feel myself, do not sleep well, cant eat much, very uncomfortable laying down.
