After the birth of my first baby I had a lot of stretch marks as well as excess skin. Knowing I wanted to have more children I tried not to let it bother me but now after 3 children, 2 vaginal deliveries and 1 c-section I was ready for a change. I didn't quite know that a tummy tuck was what I wanted or needed to achieve the tummy I once had but after having a consultation with a plastic surgeon, I knew it was what I wanted.
Everything leading up to the day of surgery was scary, to be honest I expected the worst. The day of surgery was pretty exciting and everything passed so quickly that it just seemed like I woke up and it was all over.
I am 4 days post-op and have to say it went smoother than I expected. Pain level has been no higher than a 6 or 7 and even that was not very often. I only had pain when getting up or walking or standing for long periods of time. I owe that to my pain pump, that the lord for those!!! Also did not skip meds AT ALL!!! I took those around the clock, and even set my alarm so I wouldn't miss a dose. I am a big baby for pain and didn't not want to feel it at all and this worked for me. I didn't cry or feel horrible pain at all but it was a little a uncomfortable which was expected after being cut from hip to hip of course it would be. I had another post op appt today and it went well, one of my drain tubes was removed and will be getting the other out on day 8.
So far so good and just excited to start seeing my results!!! YAY TUMMY TUCKS!!!
Oh and my PS was AMAZING!!!

I FEEL GREAT! I don't have any pain what so ever and my scar is looking really good! I am so excited about my results and its only been 3 weeks almost 4. I just came back to work 4 days ago and I think all the walking has really helped with recovery. I also went back to the gym as well but starting slow with light cardio. The only thing I don't like is that I have gained 8 lbs....yeah pretty upsetting. It is suppose to be normal but its still really upsetting. Not fitting into my pants either and that is also supposed to be normal. I really hope I can get back into my pre-op pants soon.
I am 5 weeks and 1 day post op and I love my new...

From the begining he has answered all my question before even asking. He was very clear on what my experience would be like and how everything was going to be done. He made sure I was pleased and completely taken care of. I would highly recommend Dr. O!!!
