My consultation was on January 15th .It went super good.I love my Doctor .He was super friendly and made me feel very comfortable.He answered every question that i had .I even brought the list that i have above and he went through everything and answered it all.I'm super excited to find that i DONT NEED A breast lift.Thank God.He also said i don't need lipo suction.I was a little sad about that but i dont mind now cause that will be extra money in my pockets .I brought a picture of how i wanted my stomach to look after the tummy tuck (its one of my wish pic) He said he can get my dream stomach if i lose about 10 to 15 pounds.Right now i weigh 134 i guess he wants me to be at 120 so my tummy can be super flat.Also he said that would take care of the back fat and love handles.The only disappointing part about the consultation is he said im going to have a vertical scar due to me having a belly piercing wish im very sad about .During my next pre op appointment ill ask how long does he think the scar is going to be .
I showed him the collage of how i wanted my breast to look he said that i shouldn't go that big because 5 years from now their not going to look so nice.His recommendation are that i go with 425cc max.so at the consultation i choose 375cc for the left and 400cc for the right. Since one breast is bigger than the other.At my next pre -op consultation im going to change my mind and go with 400 cc and 425 cc so i don't have to worry about the booby greed everyone gets.
During the consultation I also was told to give them a urine sample since i was known to have chronic UTI.I also have to get checked again closer to my surgery date .Hopefully everything goes good.He said if i do have a UTI i have to reschedule the surgery because my UTI can cause an infection through my whole body.So in the meantime i'm making sure i take my cranberry supplement so i can avoid a UTI.I'll include a few pics of my consultation.
Tomorrow is the big day!!
Tomorrow is the big day.I go in at 7:15 am.Ill keep you guys posted as much as i can with pics and updates.Keep me in your prayers ladies.
I DIT IT :)
6 Feb 2014
Day of treatment
I did it yall.Here are a few pics.My PS was only able to fit 375cc on the left and 400 cc on the right.Im in pain but its tolerable as long as i keep up with my meds.Ill put some more pics and give u some more details later since i'm tired n sleepy from the meds.
6 Feb 2014
Day of treatment
Sorry that's all that pic i can take before getting worn out.
Here's a pic of my stomach.I have more.Ill upload the rest later.Its a little swollen above belly button.
Day 1 post op
So far the pain level is not that bad.If i dont keep up with my pain meds every 4 hours i will be in big trouble.I cant walk straight.its super painful.My back feels sore.My breast aren't that bad.I love my boobs .Hopefully they dont go down too much .I'm currently taking arnica and bromelian so hopefully that will help with the swelling and bruising.Come to think of it i dont have any bruises.Maybe its because i didnt get any lipo done.My Ps thought that getting lipo would be to much work done at once.I also had bought the vitamin pack from make me heal so hopefully it will help me have a easier recovery.
To be honest im in pain but since i really wanted this surgery i dont really mind it.I did have drains.Hopefully i get to take it off when i go see my PS next week.The drain arn't that bad.I rather have the drain so all that liquid isn't stuck around my stomach.
so far im loving my results.if you guys have any question let me know.Also im not wearing any compression garment until the drain tubes are remove cuz i dont think i can handle all the pain it might cause. Im currently sleeping on my recliner chair.I dont know what i would do with out it.The recliner is a must have if your doing a tummy tuck.Thank goodness for all the info on here it made me well prepared emotionally and mentally for this procedure.
Help with swelling
I think something is seriously wrong.Since day one i've been experiencing major swelling above my BB .I hope its not seroma or is it him not tightening my muscle tight enough above my Belly button?What does it look like to you guys? Since the first day my stomach has never been flat its always been swollen over my belly button.I'm not even sure if its swelling. I'm panicking over here .I see him on Wednesday and ill see what he says.I hope he doesn't brush it off and says it swelling. Wednesday cant get here fast enough.My biggest fear is having to go back for a revision.one i don't have the money for it and two i don't want to add more to the recovery time.
What do you guys think ? you ladies with a tummy tuck experience were you completely flat when you weren't swelling ?or have you always had a little swelling above the belly button? if you look at my first pic of my belly you can see the swelling .Ahhhhhhhhh please help.I need to just breath and calm down.Thanks for reading me going crazy over here.
I saw my PS today
I saw my Ps today and he confirmed everything is okay.The swelling i'm experiencing is normal and its not seroma.(Thank goodness) He said the reason im swelling is because the area experienced trauma due to the fact he had to pull the skin extra tight and he had to make me a new belly button .I guess i was panicking because the swelling was painful and unbearable yesterday .So ladies it has been confirmed its okay to be swelling 24/7.(Yikes).I wonder if swelling in that area is ever going to go down and when.so the crisis is over.On a brighter note he took out one of my drains.He said i can wait to get the other taken drain out on Friday which is in 2 days or wait Monday .I have a appointment then to take out my sutures under my breast.I think i might wait Monday since i don't want all that fluid in my belly. Im not sure though cuz the drain are a pain in my butt.
SO heres pics of the girls on day 6 .
PS said its time to start wearing CG
My Ps said its time start wearing a compression garment.So i went to Walmart and bought five of them and tried all of them at home to see which one fit me the best so far i love the one i posted a pic of .im going to return the rest.The one in the pic below is so comfortable, i love it.so if you haven't found the right compression garment hit walmart and see if you like that one.The only thing i wish it came in xs-mall but still i still feel like its worth it.I bought a fajas on ebay for $75 sz large and it wouldnt fit.what a waste of money .Thats why i like to buy items at a store instead of online cuz you can try and return it to the store if you dont like it.Oh well .I guess ill try to sell it back on ebay..Believe it or not i love wearing the compression garment it helps with my back pain and also its easier to get out of my recliner with it.Also so far i feel so much better with it on.The CG makes the swelling less painful cuz the garment is helping push down on my belly which is helping with the pain .At my appointment today i also asked my doctor can he please prescribe me muscle relaxers and he did.Yes!! The muscle relaxers works so much better than pain killers in my opinion.Especially if you had a breast augmentation.Sometime i would feel my breast tightening up and a burning sensation.After taking the muscle relaxer today the pain from my breast and implants tightening up is not that bad.A lot of ladies swore by the muscle relaxers so im so happy my PS let me get them . I love him.Good luck ladies and happy healing.
Here a few pic with my compression garment on.which i love.It so comfortable.
Sutures removed today
Hello ladies. Has everybody's healing going ?so far mine has been going awesome. Today I went to see my surgeon and the nurse took off my sutures from my breast it was a painless ,easy process. Took less than five minutes.
As far as my swelling go ,I still do swell just above my belly button but it's getting a lot better especially when I wear my compression garment. I'm trying to slowly but surely get off my pain medicine I only take them at night now. I'm still sleeping on the recliner I tried sleeping on my bed last night but it was still uncomfortable so I'll stick to the recliner for another two weeks. Hopefully in four weeks I'm up and feeling so much better because right now it hasnt been two weeks and I feel pretty good. I can cook, clean ,drive and grocery shop so that's a plus. the only thing is I still get a lot of back pain. Still not fully walking straight yet but I'm okay with that. If you have any questions about recovery just leave them below and I'll be happy to answer them . ciao :)

Sport bra shopping
Sport bra shopping !
Ive been having problems with a lump i've develop in my upper belly button.Its been really bothering me.At first remember i was complaining, thinking it was swelling.It turn out to be more than swelling. I've actually develop a hematoma.Its really making me depress .Cuz i have a big lump there that doesn't want to go away.Its there 24/7.I knew with surgeries complications happens.I just never thought it would happen to me.Ive been trying to message it.Hopefully it will go away on its own.My PS said give it 4-6 month before we take action.Now im left looking disform :(
At my my Dr.appointment today i was also able to take out my streri strips off and got a chance to see how my scar look.It doesnt look to good.but i was expecting that cuz its only been three weeks.so i cant expect for it to look to good. Surprisingly im not sad about the scar.I'd choose it over my sagging belly .All in all even with the hematoma im still really happy i went with this surgery.When in doubt i just go looks at my pre-operation pictures and know i made the right decision.Hope all is well with you guys.
Three weeks post operation /Happy Sunday
Happy Sunday ladies. So far I am three weeks and a few days post operation. So far everything is looking good. I'm still swelling but the swelling is getting less and less. Also the hematoma that I have seems like it's going down. What I do is ,every day I take a hot towel and put it over the lump and massage it . so far that seems to be working. My tummy is looking better and better each day .Thank goodness for that. My breast seems like they're getting smaller LOL. Maybe I'm just getting a case of booby greed. Here I thought when I first had them they were a little bit too big for me. I love how my breast look naked but in clothes they seem to disappear a little. Nothing a extra padded bra at Victoria's Secret can't fix . I really don't want my breast to be too big in fear of sagging too early. So far I'm just loving the new me. I just feel so blessed that I was able to get this surgery . I'm just so surprised how I don't mind the Scar from the tummy tuck . I guess I hated my sagging belly more than I hate scarring. I'm probably going to start the silicone sheet in the next few days so the scar could start looking better. Well let me stop rambling LOL. At the three weeks Mark I'm able to stand straight, sleep on my bed, Cook, clean. Pretty much everything except for lifting anything heavy. I also try not to push anything so I don't pull a muscle. I'm going to give myself three more weeks before I go back to work but I'm pretty much feeling really good. I'm also off all my pain medicine. so far great experience .I have my good days and bad days but so far still very happy I went through with this here some new pictures. Hope everybody is feeling and healing beautifully . Happy Sunday ladies.
I Love Dr. Paredes. He is so easy to talk to.He made me feel so comfortable through out the whole process.I asked him a thousand questions and he answered each and every one of them.He is so down to earth and knowledgeable about his craft .If your in the Tallahassee area or ANY area please pay this man a visit.
