Swollen and bruised

Going back for more

Tummy tuck scheduled for May
26

Tummy tuck

Decided on surgery date of May 26 with Dr. Bruno for Tommy tuck and Michael section of the flanks for a total of 6700. Was given a sheet 15 time for surgery. I arrive to the surgery center on the Wilshire Boulevard on time. Was prepped by nurse Patrick and anesthesiologist Sharon for the procedure. Procedure went well! I am able to walk around pretty good with bent over posture. Jackson-Pratt drain's in place. Received a courtesy call from Dr. Bruno last night I informed him that I was doing well. Feeling very sore pain is tolerable only had to take pain medicine twice was unable to get comfortable during sleep last night. . First-day problem schedule for today at 4:30 hopefully I get to see what it looks like. Will post more before pictures!

Tummy tuck

I was finally able to shower yesterday seven days after… Was scared to take off abdominal binder… Super tender... And unable to walk upright. Went back for one week check up with Dr. Bruno drains removed. Weird feeling well removin moving them. Didn't hurt just felt funny. Was actually relieved to remove them I think it will help with my Limited movement.

b4 pics *tummy tuck*

Day 11 pics

Still walking hunched over backaches due to not being able to walk upright. Off of pain medication though is always a good thing. Still can't get very comfortable when sleepy. Don't know why sleeping on my right side is very painful. So I pretty much sleep on my back and left side which is getting a little old. Still pretty swollen but overall happy with the progress thus far.

Day 10 pics

Forgot to upload the pics yesterday.

On the fence

Debated back and forth on whether or not to do this review. I am begining to become alilttle upset with my results. I imagined my stomach would much flatter than it is. I keep staring at before pics to see if i see any difference at all. Read reviews on swelling on RS looked at pics and I am just feeling worse and worse. I called the office to see if i would be able to schedule an earlier appt to discuss my concerns but was told by the very unhelp Marisol there where no earlier appointments. :(

tomorrow will be a month :( not happy at all with what i c so far

I understand there is swelling. But i invisioned a whole new look at one month

more pics from 2day

Update pics

Small progress...still isn't as flat as i would like it 2 b or imagined it 2 b...I hv a follow appt w Dr. Bruno hopefully he can put my mind at ease
