Wow, not as horrible as I imagined!! Went in Thursday at 6:30 am & was home a few hpurs later. Still in pain, hunched over, my tummy feels tighter than shoes laces pulled together as tight as possible, tired!! I'll keep posting :)Will post pics as soon as I have more energy & drains are removed!! Will I ever stand straight up again??? Lol

Things are going well. I am one week post op. Went to the doctor yesterday and he removed one drain. Still have one left, but that is ok. One is better than two. I'm still feeling well, getting a little tired and napping throughout the day. No pain meds. The surgery was WELL WORTH it ladies. DO IT if you are thinking about it. I don't have ANY REGRETS!! Posting some before and 1 week post op pics.

2 weeks post op today. I got my 2nd drain out yesterday. It was painless. I'm still wearing my binder garmer ast tight as possible. I'm feeling great. Shopping for Christmas and taking walks around the neighborhood. I still get tired quicker than normal and my back aches a bit, but nothing terrible. For all you women who are not sure if they should do,I say GO FOR IT!! My expereince was so much more scary in my head than it was in real life. It was SO much easier than I had imagined!!

3 weeks post op: went back to work this week. I work for a library and am on my feet 8 hours a day, 3 days a week. I can sit for (2) 15 breaks and a 30 minute lunch. My binder was snug at the beginning of the day but after three hours on my feet the binder was so tight from all the swelling. I am now taking ibuprofen and (still) taking Bromelain to help reduce swelling. Hopefully the swell hell will slowly dissipate. I can't wait for week 6 to arrive to get this binder OFF, ugh!!

6 weeks post op appointment was today. I'm actually hitting the six week mark in two days, but that's ok. I no longer have to wear the compression garmet. The drive home my tummy felt funny without the garmet. It almost feels as if my muscles are re-stretching out, but apparently that is normal. My 2 drain tube sites aren't completely healed, but they are getting better. The nurse removed 3 stitches that were kind of making the drain sites inflamed a bit. Posting 6 week post op pics. My belly button is so cute, I LOVE IT. It looks so natural and I think it's perfect. Dr. Soto did an absolutely fantastic job, better than I expected. Ladies, if you are not sure, do it!!!!!! I have ZERO regrets. It was worth every ounce of pain!!!!

Orlando Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Soto and his staff are wonderful, caring, professionals. Their expertise and experience are proven by their outstanding results. My tummy tuck wasn't half as painful or scary as I imagined. I can't wait to show off my new tummy =)
