The worst thing about having a tummy tuck & lipo was the miserable drains! I can't lie, they hurt & they were just a burden. The best part about it is that I finally have a nice flat tummy & I actually have a shape & its not round!!
I had this procedure done because I have gained & lost weight my entire life so I had excess skin & I also had a C-section 10 yrs ago which also caused problems.
For me, I've had a great recovery so far (4 wks out)! I've not had any severe pain. I have found that I get tired really easy so I have to rest more than I'd like to.
One thing that I've learned through this process is that EVERYBODY is different & our bodies respond differently to surgery. Educate yourself as much as you can before having any type of procedure done.
