I'm nervous! I will be going in for a mini tummy tuck with lipo in about 3 weeks. The doctors says I don't need muscle repair because I work out and my muscles are tight. Everything I've read says not to skip the repair.Should I still insist on it???? I have had two children c- section 40 years old 5'5 125 pounds. I'm very active and run 3-4 times a week. I don't know what to do:0(

I've had a second pre opt appointment to try and ease my mind... Unfortunately it didn't help . My dr said I will only need a MTT and lipo on my abdominal area upper and lower. Should I ask for muscle repair??? I usually look a couple of months pregnant after I eat.. Will the repair help with that??

I'm 4 days post op... I'm feeling great and have very little pain. I went with what my doctor suggested ( no muscle repair) and I could not be happier at this moment. My pouch is gone and my belly is flatter even though there is still lots of swelling. He said I had great muscles underneath and I will finally be able to see my hard work once the swelling goes down ( could take a couple of months). I'm thrilled so far!

I was contemplating no mr but decided to let him do it. Only 3 days post op so don't have a clue what I look like yet. But the pain hasn't been bad so far. Totally manageable. Your recovery will be so much quicker though- yeah! And you look great

I thought I had answered back to you, but I don't see it...darn! I did the Tracy Anderson post pregnancy workout, and the p90x ab ripper.. But really the clean eating worked the best.. All I do now is run 3-4 times a week and watch my eating.:0)

Did you have MR? Or BB float? I had such minimal pain.. Hopefully you're feeling better today! Mine started looking better after about 4-5 days. Can't wait to hear how yours looks!

My belly is a lot flatter.. I'm hoping it will become even flatter since its only been 17 days. I wish I would have had the flanks done:0) I think not having muscle repair was a good thing, my abs are starting to show through and looks good:0) There is some lose skin that my doctor said will get better... Ill keep posting pics:0)
