I had a tumescent tummy tuck with smart lipo of the upper and lower abs and also the flanks. My surgery was done by an obgyn and it came out amazing! I went to see a few dr's and they were all so blah kinda like they do this all the time and I was stupid for asking questions. When I went to see the dr who did my surgery he had a totally differnt way of doing the surgery. The big one I loved was that it would be all done under local which was great because i have a total fear of getting put under.
He made a great point about why he does the lipo with it. He showed me that if he didn't I would still be thick but with a thick flat stomach and thick sides. Oh yea another great thing there is no need for drains!!!!
I am 11 days post op and am feeling great. The recovery was totally cake. The only thing that was hard was my little ones they don't understand why i cant pick them up.
I'm going to get my stiches out tomorrow so I'll keep you updated
