I'm a 29 year old 5' 120lbs mother of 5 gorgeous children, I'm really excited/nervous never had any type of surgery but so looking forward to getting my tummy to as normal looking as possible with the bonus of a nice bigger butt.. I'm kind of scared of the recovery having these procedures done at the same time. Can anyone who had these done at the same time tell me their experience?
I'm so excited my surgery is coming up soon I can't believe it's around the corner! I have my Percocet & antibiotics ready I bought more pillows washed my blankets did a lot of cleaning I think I'm as ready as can be to have this done.
Excited & nervous
Tomorrow is my big day! I'm excited & nervous I want to get a good night sleep but I can't stop thinking & feeling nervous. Thank God I have my mom & her support she'll be taking care of me during my recovery. I'll post pics & update as soon as I feel up to it.
Well I'm now going through the recovery process everything is going well so far I do have pain but it's more soreness where I had the lipo & some burning on the incision I've been taking my meds every 4 hours as directed by my doc. Thank God I have my mom to help me out she is really supportive & helpful & Thank God everything is going good so far I have 2 drains my right one has had the most drainage, so far they don't bother me that much I tuck them in my compression garment. I can't wait to look at my belly I haven't seen my scar or my belly button just the bruising from the lipo, I have an apt tomorrow I'll update after I'm so excited to take a peek at my new tummy. Oh & my butt is hard on some areas & sore.
1st post op.
I went in to my appt today & got my drains removed. I'm so happy with my results so far. I'm swollen & sore but looking at my stomach makes everything worth it. My bottom looks better too but I'm just posting pics of my stomach for now. The most difficult & painful day for me was the 2nd day post op and I was only on Percocet no pain pump. Everything has gone well so far thank God!
2 weeks 5days post op
I'm updating my progress since it been almost 3 weeks my recovery hasn't been as bad as I expected, thank God! However I've had some swelling & a difficult time standing & sitting down I'm still sore as well from my lipo. I'm able to drive now do some light cleaning no moping or sweeping though. I can also fit into my jeans which I thought would take longer, so far I'm really happy with my healing & my results my scar is low & I like my belly button as for my bottom I can see a difference but not too much. I'm still getting used to my new body it feels so surreal. ?
4 weeks + post op
It's been a bit more than a month since I had my surgery, every day that passes by it gets better I still have swelling which gets worse by night time I also have an area where I had lipo that's still hard & my stomach muscles still feel sore if I sneeze cough etc. I wear my compression garment for comfort now but I don't have to wear anymore, I'm able to do everything I would do before the surgery but with care. Also please make sure you have someone to help you out you will get exhausted & you need a lot of rest. ;)
Well it's almost 4 months post tt I'm very happy with my results in general however I have a small dog ear on my right side, my doctor will do lipo on it by the end of this month hopefully that will fix the problem. Other than that everything has gone well I'm able to exercise now my body looks so much better that it did before I can wear jeans without my stomach hanging out. I still swell by the end of the day but it's not as bad anymore. I will update after my lipo & post more pics! xoxoxo :)
A year later
It's been so long since I've posted any pictures, Im still very happy with my results & want to share this experience with women who like myself are doing research before going through with any type of cosmetic surgery!
