I am German and had my extended tummy tuck with lipo in Prague, CZ, as there a very modern and good clinics there, but the cost is a lot lower than in Germany. I had my op almost 3 weeks ago, and have been quite fit again after 5-7 days. After 11 days, I could manage my household with 2 kids again 90 percent on my own. Stayed in clinic for 3 nights, which was necessary as I had a bleeding from a small artery occurring after 12 hours pot-op, and needed a second op to stop the bleeding. The rest of my healing time was completely free of any complications or infections. I will still wear my compression garment for 2 weeks, then swap for spandex panties. The result is great now already. It is swollen at the base, but I think I will have my pants 2 sizes smaller in the future. One advice: Keep your hands off the cut! No showering , no shower gels and creams and stuff. Just use a cloth and wash yourselves with soap, and desinfect the cut with spray once a day, and otherwise: hands off. Then it will heal in no time without infection. Just one last thing: You really want to do this with general sedation, and NOT as an outpatient. take 3 days in hospital, as in the first days many things can happen, like stuffed drainage, bleedings, problems with your blood pressure etc, and if you are at home, you have a problem!

but he managed to shape the hip area nicely and to avoid dog ears. When my compression garnment is off, I think that my belly is a lot slimmer than before ( with lipo plus 4 pounds of saggy gut missing),
but today - 3 weeks post-op - I tried on my OLD pants that fit me beforehand , and even without the pressure belt, I cant even get them shut at all, so I must be currently BIGGER than before my OP, although it does only look a bit swollen above the middle and right handside of the incision line...
I must admit that I was a bit gutted, as I start really craving for a shopping trip , and new pants in preferably smaller sizes...
Is it normal not to fit even into your OLD pants which still used to fit even with a big sloppy belly? Can I expect this swelling to go down any time soon, so that I can finally buy trendy spring collection stuff?
Well, my doctor told me to come back next week for an ultrascan , in order to determine if there is a lot of liquid/swelling still, and to see if the skin has settled back down. Then she will tell me , if I can drop the compression garment and swap it for a spandex "Bridget Jones " -panty. Bye for now, rena 75
5 weeks post-op now, I am still happy every single...

I waited for max 15 mins, then we had the talk. I was preinformed anyway by internet info, videos and mail correspondence with the doctor, so he just looked at the mess, and told me, that he was going to do a lipo on my upper belly and flanks, that no muscle stitcjes were necessary, and that a rather long cut to the outside of my hips was needed, but then it was going to be fine. True. The staff is very pleasant, many speak English or German, and when my right handside drainage bottle was full all of a sudden, they reacted immediately. 2 mins to doctor, 10 mins to surgery. Payment easily before op with credit card, reacted to mails within 2 days. I felt taken seriously , and I will go back to that place for a breast lift in about 1 years time.
