18 Year Old Getting Full TT with Lipo of the Flanks - Walnut Creek, CA

To begin with, i was 16 and pregnant. Yes i know very young! i had my daughter at 17 years old and here i am a year later hating my stomach. I beged my parents to let me get a tummy tuck . Finally my stomach will be back to normal in less then 24 hours.I cant explain how nervous i am! im more anxious to see what i will look like after! im not looking foward to the pain that comes along with the tummy tuck. I feel i desearve this because i am a single mom raising my daughter on my own with the help of my suportive parents and i feel so blessed that i have the oppertunity to have my teenage body back. I was only able to enjoy my flat stretch mark free stomach for 16 years. if only i knew what having a baby does to your body. dont get me wrong i love my daughtere to death and i believe ill be more happy if i have more cofidence whitch will be better for my daughter to see her mother happy instead of depressed. I just feel a little selfish =( but i desearve to be happy too. I want to be able to take my daughter to the swimming pool and ditch the one piece. once again i am sooo nervous tomorrow is the big day!!! i will keep u guys posted!!

Today is my first day following surgery. I can't believe I went threw with it! I thought it was going to be way worse but the pain is totally bearable. I know I shouldn't of took my binder off but I just had to see my new belly which was a bad idea I felt so lightheading I had to put it back on but atleast I got a picture in. I can't wait til I feel normal I can get up on my own to go to the bathroom only after my pain medicine kicks in. I'm feeling pretty good just very sore. Yesterday after surgery was the worst I three up from the anastesia I was madras bit after I took some medicine I was fine my throught is a little sore from the tube that was in my throught during surgery. Overall I like what I see so far eventhough I'm really swollen

Today I am feeling slot better I'm walking around good I don't need help getting up to use the bathroom I'm doing pretty good for three days postop . I'm so happy that my ps didn't use drains because I read they were a pain. I'm a little said I can't pick up my daughter but she runs up to me and gives me hugs and my mom picks her up to put her in my lap that makes me feel better.I took another peak at my tummy I can tell it's still swollen but I love what I see I know it will look amazing once the swelling goes down and I have a little bruising were the lipo was done but overall I starting to feel normal gradually I know it takes time
