My overall experience was great, I had my surgery two weeks ago.

I am familiar with these procedures, I work in recovery for a few surgery centers and cosmetic clinics.

I am a mother of twins, during pregnancy I gained a goof 55 pounds all in my belly. The pregnancy went full term and I gave birth to two beautiful baby girls. I decided that since they recently turned two that it was time for a mommy makeover. I had drains in for a week, and as soon as the took it out I started developing some bulging over the incision... Told the dr and he merely told me it was swelling...

A week later the bulging is worse and is quite jiggly, I emailed the dr photos and he is agreeing that this could be a seroma

Its a few months shy of a year and Ive never felt or looked better. This entire experience has been fun and educational. Although I cant stress it enough the amount of attention you should apply towards scar therapy, I am happy with the results.

The dr was very informative and explained everything in great detail to where I did not have any questions or doubts when leaving my consultation. Day of surgery was nerve racking as it is for many people, the staff at the surgery center were very professional and courteous. I woke up after having my breast and tummy done with no nausea or pains of any kind. My follow up was perfect, and informative about what to expect. I had two drains in and had the first removed after 7 days and the second removed after 11 days. This is because I am prone to having fluid collection. After the first week I hasd a lot of questions about swelling etc and he was always responding within an hour or so with satisfying answers.
