Tummy Tuck - To eliminate the huge spare tire - Pittsburgh, PA

To eliminate the huge spare tire & possible...

To eliminate the huge spare tire & possible thinning of upper abs, extensive thinning of inner thighs with additional lipo to thin the back, flanks, hip and left outter thigh. I had three kids and was schedueld for ab repair as well but told 4 days post op that ab repair was not performed as it was not needed. This was mentioned (in passing). Is this normal?

Three weeks & 5 days Post Op. Finally feel like I've turned the corner this past week. Standing approx 95% upright and of course stiff in the evenings right now. Unfortunately, inner thighs are and will be swollen and hard for some time due to the ultrasonic lipo trauma. Standard lipo hardening everywhere else. Continue lymphatic massage treatments and manual massage. Updated progress photos, developed HBP (High Blood Pressure) this past week 140/100 (no history of HBP) docs putting me on beta blockers perhaps its due to the trauma of the surgery or still having to take pain meds?

My PS stated that he didnt do the muscle repair because when he pulled the muscles together I would buldge on my sides and didn't want me to be "boxy" and have no waist at all. Anyone heard of this before?
