I am 6 days in to my recovery from: tumescent liposuction under general anesthesia, a very small mini tuck (in doctor's words) because he said i didn't have enough loose skin for a full mini tuck, and he plicated my fascia muscles (muscle tightening). I decided to have this surgery after exhausting all efforts to totally flatten my stomach with diet and exercise. I have a ten year old and i have been battle this bulge since i gave birth.
I still very swollen and i have a crease about 2 inches below my belly button where i was told the doctor was more aggressive due to his sculpting technique. I also just had a seroma drained about 2 days ago that formed along my lower stomach near the pubic area. the mini tuck scar is still bandaged so i havent seen it yet. I'm not in alot of pain right now, just alot of soreness. i can walk around straight up and dont take pain meds as often, mainly at night. I have been wearing my compression garment day and night. I can tell my torso is smaller but definitely not ready to show off due to the moderate swelling and firmness i have. My doctor assures me im going to look great...i hope so...i cant wait to see the final results!
