I am 26 yrs old with four children. My weight is 197lbs. I just had a baby last month and decided I want a change for me. My stomach hung over a bit but the skin was not loose to me. I just preferred taking the easy way out, rather then the gym everyday. So the fee was originally 7600.00 but the overnight hospital stay and pain pump was optional. I decided to cut cost and go home after my surgery. It saved me $1800.00.

I went in at 3pm and finished at 5:30. I was in recovery for 1 hr until the anesthetica left my system. It didn't hurt because I took my pain meds right after. But the first cough or sneeze feels like you bursted a stitch. 3 days later I was able to take a shower but I had to leave the bandages on.

I'm anticipating my results and I'm praying it looks the way I desire because it's still swollen. How long after will I be able to see a difference? My back is in pain and I'm walking like an old lady but I guess it's all worth it in the long run. I was expecting to get cut from hip to hip but my ps dr. Wang-aswarf in Atlanta ga did a fantastic job and she cut right across my vagina and it's very thin and neat. Will post picture soon...

Feeling frustrated. I went to my 3rd post op visit and removed the drains after 3 weeks finally. But now I notice that I have a hole the size if a dime that is open. Either the stitch burst, or I was around to much 2nd hand smoke. How ever or which ever it's going to take a longer healing process then normal. This may also cause a scar which I will need to have corrective surgery on in the future. Has anyone had a similar problem. I still feel like I have fluid in my stomach causing swelling but they took the drains out. They stuffed the whole with guze soaked in silicone and then taped it down to keep it clean. They rubbed antibiotic on the outside. This is much more then I bargained for. Any feed back is helpful if you heard of similar situation!

Well it's been almost 1 month but still I have...

Well it's been almost 1 month but still I have tape on my stomach b/c I have an area that just doesn't want to heal. The doctor said its probably because I'm a chigger ate smoker. I'm so ready to get in the gym and work these flanks and back rolls. I must say I am loving my new stomach. I can't show it all but the piece I can show I am. High waist pants and belly shirts for me. At what point did you ladies get dr. Permission to where the silicone strip? The only thing I noticed that I dislike is the fact that our bodies are perportioned for our breast and now that my stomach is flat my boobs have nothing to rest on so now they look like they sag. I'm a 38d so it looks like a lift will be coming from Santa Claus this year.

Someone please tell my how to post my pics?????

Everything was perfect the only thing I don't like is the fact that I was not told the hospital facility cost was optional and could be deducted from the surgery cost. Also I had surgery on a Friday and there office is closed on weekends so there was no follow up call. Other then those minor things I would defenently recommend.
