My upper leg is swollen and bruised bad also.

I like the looks of my new belly button now I can see I have one lol

Sometimes I put lotion on my stomach but not close to my wounds it helps relieve some of the tightness feeling

New Pics

Some better pictures this time . I've been outside alot today doing things. Pain is still not that bad. I'm feeling lil hunch back walking lol.

day 7

Feeling really good, not walking so hunchd back today finally. I still have alot of tight swelling from my belly button down. At night I've been putting a icepack on it tryn get swelling down some.

15 days post op.

Swelling has went down some but under my belly button its hard as a rock swollen . I never sat down much from day one. Maybe that's why Im this way? Any one else have this problem and what can I do to get ridd of rock feeling? My sides are knotted from lipo and ache all the time. Looking at other girls reviews seems like they got flat tummy n no time. I'm still wearing my binder garment everyday also.

I'm getting Skinner & loving it!!!

I went to Turkles office this morning for my second check up it went great. The nurse says I look amazing and that I'm healing up very well,I still have some swelling left but I'm to massage it daily nurse said. I can finally get back to exercising a lil like walking n taken it easy on my exercise bike so I'm happy to hear that. I've lost 4 inches so far ,it feels great to put shirts on and not seeing my belly roll.

feeling great

I have been using the healing serum for my scar it's doing a wonderful job on my scar! I use it twice a day along with massaging along the scar tissue to break it down.

new pics

I have been using my scar lotion twice a day also still massaging my knots under my belly button and along my scar. Some knots around my scar are purdy good size and very hard that's why I look like I have some what of a pooch belly. I massage my bigger knots with alot of pressure but no luck getting the scar tissue to break. My doc. Said I can stop wearing my garment but I'm going wear mine another wk. or so tryn get best results I can.

Doc. Turkle is amazing at work she does! She did my breast augmentation last yr. I love her work, being so pleased with my results of that I knew I wanted go back to her for my Tummy Tuck. I feel she is so easy to talk to answering many of my questions and informing me of many thangs about my procedure ,very nice caring doctor who works in a very professional way to give you best results for your body type! I plan on going back to her sometime and getting sculpsure done on my back!
