4 weeks- Before Pics Added Stamford, CT

I had my TT this past Wednesday. April 17. Much like many reviews that I read having two pregnancies where I had large babies really did me in. I am 5'1 and weighed 120 pre pregnancy. I was very fit and finally at a happy weight, where previously I had bounced between 104 and 128 lbs and struggled with my weight. I was not physical or emmotional prepared after my two children being born by C/S and my stomach would never be the same. I figured after my first child that I would need a TT but remained in denial and hoped and prayed that I could just work out really hard and it would all go back together. I even tried hide it with girdles and painful spanx, but no matter how hard I worked out my I always looked like I was 5 months pregnant. Honestly the thought of another surgical procedure scared the heck out if me. But here I am 5 day PO and very excited to say it feels good to be on the flat side ! Thank you ladies that have come before me your stories are inspirational and good luck to those gearing up!

I will add photos later!

One week PO. Got stitches out today. Can't find any before shots but I thought I would add some pictures I took today. I have to say , I am very pleased with everything. I love by belly button. My PS made it look so natural. I am still a little swollen but I can already see my abs which have been hidden for so long. I haven't been all that curious about what I look like under the bindings until now, so it was a nice surprise to see what my stomach looked like.

Feeling blue. Just thought I would update. The recovery is fine, no complications, but I know longer have consistant help. I feel normal and strong most days, but I am unable to keep up with my children. My friends have been trying to fill in the gaps, but it just looks like I am milking it, because I appear fine. I just can't lift my son or chase after him. I still get tired easily and after a long day with the kids my abs are soooooo sore. My PS ideally wants me to rest, but its getting harder. I knew recovery was long and hard, but damn...its really dragging. I know I am just complaing, but I honestly didnt think about how my kids figured into this recovery process.

So here I am week 4 and feeling great. Boy, this...

So here I am week 4 and feeling great. Boy, this recovery is something else. While , I have no preblems with how everything looks since it is healing nicely, but these muscles twinges and spasms are crazy! Yesterday was my first day alone all day with my two littles ones. I was able to take them out driving and to activities. I really did myself in, for the first time in weeks I had to take tylenol. But I did see the PS today and he gave me the go ahead to stop wearing a binder and to use spanx if I want. I went three hours without a binder and it felt so weird, especially since I don't have feeling on my stomach. I think I will be wearing a binder for a little longer, just for comfort. He did not give me permission to exercise though, he wants me to wait til week 7. He is very conservative and does not believe in pushing limits and so far I have followed his intructions to a T and I haven't had any complicaions. That being said, I swear my body is getting so jiggly and my butt which I work very hard on has shrunk and not in a good way. Starting to look all spongebob square pants!

What week did your PS give you clearance to exercise?

Stamford Plastic Surgeon

I researched CT top plastic surgeons, I had two consults and I had the best experience with Dr. R. His staff Nurse is wonderful and so pleasant. The office genuinely cares about people.
