I am a mom of two (4yr old and 2 yr old) and could not get my abs back no matter how much I worked out. I had my TT and flank lipo yesterday and I am feeling tired, sore but the pain is manageable. I have been following the posts on this site for a while now and I am so happy that I found it!

Everyone here has been so supportive and informative! Anyways I have my post op appnt on Monday and hopefully I will get the drain out.


Congrats and good luck healing

hey gals, day3 PO and my back is killing me. I can't get confortable no matter what. I will try a heating pad today and see how that goes. I still can't tell about my results but I know the swelling takes time to go down. I have posted pics from day 2 PO and more to come after my PS follow up on Monday.


I know you will likely have increased swelling in the next few days, but you already look fabulous!! Even with the binder on you can see the difference! Keep posting updates!

thanks for stopping by my blog... yay for you having a look at your appointment tomorrow! you should be on the home stretch from here on... the first few days are the most uncomfortable... for the back pain i used a heating pad off and on. and it will feel like a million bucks once you begin standing a bit straighter. happy for you and look forward to hearing your progress...glad you are encouraged by my posts..will keep them coming!

Got my drain out today and the go ahead to take a shower yay! I am happy with my results so far and have posted some day5 pics. The most pain I had so far was today when my two year old made me laugh so hard I thought I was going to split open. Can't wait til I can walk upright and the back pain goes away. I out some Icy Hot gel on and I have some relief now. Anyways ladies I hope everyone is well and happy healing to all!

day 8 po and I am feeling good. Not as much back pain and I was up and about for a few hours today. The only thing that's still driving me crazy is the itchyness on my sides under the cg and the numbness! Anyways the swelling is going down a bit and I am liking the progress. Went to Vic Secret today and bought some bandeaus and a bikini!! yay! Anyways many hugs to you all and hope you're all well!

hey gals! I had my 2nd post op follow up with my ps on Monday and he removed some of my bb stiches. He gave me some gel for my scar "ultra dermatix". Anyone used it before? I read online that there are better scar therapy creams or sheets out there but I will use what my ps gave me for now. My back pain is gone which is good and I am pretty much standing straight. I go back to work next week and I think I will be fine. I posted some day 14 pics. The end of my scar on my right hip-where the drain was- has a flap where it's trying to heal. Is this the dog ear I keeping reading about? Anyways my ps said he will fix it so I am happy about that. I have to wear my binder for 6 weeks! All in all, I am really happy with my results and so glad I did it! My next follow up with ps is Feb 4. I just read on someone else review that if you lose more than 10lbs after a TT that could leave you with saggy skin on your tummy??yikes is this true? I was planning to lose 20lbs once I am clear to start working out again. I just signed up for the Sporting Life 10K run on Mother's day and the ScotiaBank Half-Marathon in Oct!! Got to start running again! Anyways hugs to you all.


I asked that question on here to the doctors and recieved several answers - all said that 10-30 lbs should not effect your tummy tuck 50 or more could ... hope that helps .. happy healing ...
