My Tummy tuck was done in 2005. I took a week off work plus the Friday before. Surgery was done Friday morning and was back at work in 10 days. I had 2 drainage tube that stayed in for about 3 weeks. I had about 7 lbs of excess skin and fat removed from stomach.
This was one of the best things I could have done for myself. I have been less self conscious of myself and this has improved sex life for me and my husband tremendously. Pain was non-existent for 3 days because of pain meds but over all pain was much less then expected. I'd do it again in a heart beat!
