Slim Lipo to Abdomen, Flanks and Lower Back - Boston
on 25 Nov 2011
I loved reading your interaction between one another. I had a full tummy tuck because my stomach looked liked Freddy Krugers face. I live in Medford Oregon cost of TT is 7,200$ but they add " free" or in other words part of procedure for a TT here is lipo in the flank areas. Can you believe 11 days post opp & most my pain still remains from the lipo. I want to sleep on my side so bad. My results yesterday after waiting 9 days to shower :( ( gross I know) Were amazing. I keep taking random photos & had my husband take one. He looked down on his screen & said OMG babe you have got to see this! I was slim! As in my mommy pouch was gone!!! With all the pain & my drainage tubes getting removed I knew it was getting better but it was on thanksgiving day to top it off! I read online a women drove her car 9 days after a TT. I woke up after surgery at 2:00 went under at 10:00 and the first three things I barely whispered was " help" " hurts" and " mistake" to fallow were I want to die, hurts, mistake mistake so stupid! I also got a breast augmentation. 13 grand. Called a mommy make over so I also felt like I had a weight on my chest making each breath impossible to waist on speech. The ride home I cursed the road never noticing all the bumps before lol lol. A friend helped the first night who had a tummy tuck ( for some reason a friend no more after one night) anyways I asked her if it was worth it? She said yes & that she would do it again. I didn't think I'd make it through the first night alive. Zofran is not the AVG anti nausea medication they give BUT IF YOU WANT TO TRUST A MOTHER WHO HAD TO PREG TWO MISS CARRIAGES AND KNOWS ABOUT NAUSEA THIS WORKS! No way could I of ever made it with out Zofran. You didn't take any pain killers for your lipo I'm highly impressed as I'm
On a 2 hour tight regimen or SOL till I catch up. My doctor went on vacation till Dec 5th I had my procedure on the 14th of November! I'm not happy about this at all :( :( I feel the scar will be worth it because I'll just get a tattoo over it or maybe not! My stomach walls separated so they pulled those back together & my wrinkled belly button is gone! If your thinking of getting a Tummy Tuck it's worth it. Not much swelling though there is some. You have to stay on top of cleaning your wounds/dressings. Can't stand up straight for two weeks. I still have some stretch marks but I see now it really was that pouch & wrinkled belly button that bothered me the most. Congrats to you two ladies for making it through what sounds to be a painful & frustrating journey. I came upon this post when I was trying to find out why my lipo was hurting more then anything else. They do this to avoid muffin top and shape your body better. If your happy with your belly button a partial or mini tummy tuck is always an option. :) April Marie Miller Medford Oregon. A lil bit of my own story on a tummy tuck that had lipo
