I just had the operation on 2-7-13. I am still swollen obviously so I know it's hard to tell the results. So far I am happy except for one thing that worries me. I seem to have a small roll above the incision line. My ps told me not to worry that it will flatten out after the sutures inside dissolve. He has it pulled tight on the inside. Really hoping he's right......

Well, 7/28/2013 will be 3 weeks post op. I am still very swollen but I can def see that things are taking shape and I'm over the moon!!!! If its looking this good at only 3 weeks I can only imagine how good it will look in a few months. The creases I had a first are still noticable but are going away slowly. Im still wearing my CG. They said for up to 6 weeks. I had heard so many stories about the pain from this procedure and I feel that I have a low pain tolerance. Obviously everyone is different but I expected a lot worse. I was sore and stiff. I can't say that I ever felt just horrible pain. I have 2 boys, 4 & 2. I took off work and had it done on a Thursday and went back to work the following Thursday, mind you I have a desk job. I only worked for a little over 1/2 of that Thursday and Friday. I slept in the recliner because it was the most comfortable to me. I can't pick up the boys for 6-8 weeks so even though im feeling better (still sore) thats hard to not being able to do my normal mommy duties. The worst part by far for me was the "DRAIN". I abhor that thing. I had heard that it didn't hurt come out, that it just felt weird. It burned to me. after the initial pull it wasn't so bad. Thanks goodness I only had one though. I will try to update a little more as I can. Any questions, feel free to ask:) Have a great day!!!
