This is the best money I ever spent on myself. A tummy tuck never crossed my mind until January of this year. I talked to hubby told him what I wanted to do and he was fine with it (well not at first bcas he was so worried). I told him the children are grown this is something I want to do for me. Well March 9 I had a Full tummy tuck and lip on my flanks. The pain was not bad at all from the tummy tuck. The pain in my back from walking haunched over was another story. I took the prescirbe med for 3 days then ES tylenol for about another week. I was haunched over for about 19 days. I slept in the recliner in our bedroom for about 2 weeks. The bed was just didn't work for me.  I took 3 weeks off of work so glad  I did. I could have not went back to work any sooner. I only told a few close friends and 1 person at work. I was released at week 5  by my PS to start working out again. The first week cause a lot of swelling but not bad now. I wore sweat pants the first 2 weeks after surgery.  I'm back in most of my post op clothes!! I sugguest that you have help for at least the first 48 hours. If you have babies I'm sure you will need help longer b/c I wasn't allowed to lift over 5lbs the first couple of week. This surgery is a process but I say it's worth it. I'm glad to have a flat belly again it's been a 27 year but I can truly say it's was worth the wait.

Thanks. I can't believe it's been a year. I had revision done on March 8. My doctor wanted to do some more lipo on my right side. I'm so happy now. In FL right
now sporting a tankin swim suit. I'm so glad I did. I will try to put some updated picture on here.

If the doctor wants to do a revision do they normally charge you? Do they do it under local or general anesthia? I will need some revision of my lipo and of my tt scar due to some complications and I also noticed that my left side is nice and flat on my rib cage and my right side still has a roll. Thought it was taken care of but I am hoping that he will fix it. I just don't know what the usual policy is on revisions. How long did you have to wait before a revision was done? Again you look absolutely amazing...and have a great time in FL...:)

thanks sooo much backtome. That was really sweet. I have had great result so far. Tinktink- Today was the first day without my 2nd stage garment (spanx). The doctor told me I could stop wearing it 2 weeks ago but I'm just so used to wearing something to hold my belly in. I felt so good today looking down and nothing sticking out!! I feel great except for the swelling. I'm still have swelling really bad some days. I had to take a 4hr trip in the car on Thursday and my belly was soo swollen by the time I got home. It was bad. It's a process but I'm so happy I did it11
